Today’s society is driven by celebutante news, and MySpace profiles, and it seems that women of class, style, and charm are hard to find. It seems that thongs, rehab, and outrageous behavior are always in the headlines. But in reality, guys still want a girl they can take home to their mother, employers still like to see a suit, and peers still respect classy conduct.

Is it possible to maintain old-fashioned virtues in today’s modern world without looking like a starchy Amish grandma? In HOW TO BE A HEPBURN IN A HILTON WORLD, Ms. Christy shows women how, in this guide to glamorous style, professional success, and true love…the classy way.

HOW TO BE A HEPBURN IN A HILTON WORLD is full of fun assignments, real life examples, and notable names, and gives us a new look at seemingly old-fashioned advice. In the pages of the book, Ms. Christy covers topics such as diet, speech, work ethic, friends, relationships, manners, makeup, and fashionable yet modern clothing.

I wasn’t real sure what to think when HOW TO BE A HEPBURN IN A HILTON WORLD crossed my desk. The title was intriguing, as I am a Hilton, just not one of the newsworthy ones. Being raised by a godly mother, most of the advice in this book came natural to me as I grew up striving to be a young “lady.” But other advice in this book I didn’t know, didn’t learn, until much too late, when I was taught it the hard way.

HOW TO BE A HEPBURN IN A HILTON WORLD is a book that I’m going to be passing down to my daughters, especially as my teenager is struggling with meeting her father’s idea of modesty, yet not looking like a prude in a world where women might as well go out naked.

HOW TO BE A HEPBURN IN A HILTON WORLD is a must read if you want to be a classy lady, and not just a “stupid girl.” It contains lots of valuable advice, including portions of “he’s just not into you” advice, so you know when to walk away from a man without waiting for him to dump you. Invaluable. A must read for teens and young singles. Don’t miss HOW TO BE A HEPBURN IN A HILTON WORLD. Available in hardcover for $16.99.
