The author shows the truth behind the cameras and paparazzis in Hollywood. The pedophilia of Charlie Chaplin or Fatty the actor also murderer as a hobby, nothing can be hidden from mister Anger. A classic to read.
Don’t need to say a lot. You can not consider yourself as a fashionista if you don’t have fashion magazines. Don’t have to be Vogue, there is Grazia, Marie Claire, Madame.. that you can find everywhere online.
I bought some on the picture on Vinted. There are also apps that you can download on your phone, no excuse. A fashion magazine is really useful when you need inspiration for an outfit, you can take some colours or just one accessory from the last summer to be on fleek.
