A smart sophisticate or sexy bombshell? Demure brunette Debutante sipping tea from a china cup or bubbly blonde swirling a cocktail? Or perhaps a bit of both...? The Mad Men ad campaign played off the obvious differences between these two icons, but the two women actually had more in common than a charismatic philanderer - both exuded timeless style, and power. Pamela Koegh’s "ARE YOU A JACKIE OR A MARILYN? Timeless Lessons on Love, Power, and Style" (Gotham Books, 2010) dishes on how these two women ate, slept, loved, lost, and controlled a room with the flash of an eye.
After taking an introductory quiz to determine where you fall on the Jackie/Marilyn spectrum, it's on to customized advice on beauty and style, sex and marriage, power and career, decorating and entertaining, and more-more-more. Sidebars compare Jackie's and Marilyn's dating tips, lists of favorite books and music, diet plans, and even makeup know-how.
So whether you're planning a dinner party, penning a love note, or just primping for a night out, Keogh's book is full of fun & entertaining lessons on channeling your inner J or M in any situation.
