I wonder how many young women will ask “who is Audrey Hepburn?” I remember her well. She had beauty, class, grace and style. She was confident enough to leave much to the imagination. She was a lady. Jackie O was another lady. She defined the words grace and class. These are the women that were good role models of the past. People noticed them when they walked into a room not because they demanded attention but because their understated grace drew attention.

Today young women grab attention through lack of clothing, brash behavior, foul language and inappropriateness. Jordan Christy reminds readers that at one time tabloid magazines depended on aliens and two head creatures for headlines. Today they simple turn to women that want their name in the news. These are not the role models I want for my children.

Christy reminds readers on the graces of being a lady. She reminds us that when it comes to make up the key is looking natural. Our behavior, our manner of dress, our language all work together to give others a perception of who and what we are. The makeup hints are outstanding. Many of them I already use. However, I was never sure about colors and where to place blush. Christy makes it easy.

I love this book. Women in their 20s seem to be the focus of this book. However, older women will definitely benefit from the contents. I would encourage MS Christy to write a book on the same topic for middle school and high school females. If they learned the definition of grace, style and class before adulthood their life would be much simpler.
