Have you ever wished you had Jennifer Aniston's body? Jennifer Garner's marriage? Gwyneth Paltrow's kitchen savvy? Julia Roberts' serenity? Beyonce's, well, everything? In this charming memoir, Rachel Bertsche embarks on a quest to remake her life in the image of her favorite celebrities. During months spent working out to Jennifer Aniston's yoga guru's DVDs, devouring Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop, copying Sarah Jessica Parker's fashion choices, and more, Rachel hopes to figure out if our celebrity obsessions can help us in the pursuit of happiness. And how, exactly, they get those rock-hard abs. Part personal memoir, part research and reflection, this book investigates our collective fascination with both celebrity culture and perfection, and how the two intersect. It looks at why we devour celebrity images and covet their lives, and why so many women believe that if only they had A-list looks/houses/relationships/fabulousness, that maybe their lives would be a little more perfect too. Jennifer, Gwyneth, and Me will do for female perfectionism what MWF Seeking BFF did for women and friendship. Rachel Bertsche asks: If I do what they do, will I appear perfect? And if I appear perfect, will I finally feel perfect? And, ultimately, does perfection lead to happiness?
