Quotes & Awards

  • “Typically dressed in black (usually Martin Margiela or Yohji Yamamoto) with jet black hair and no makeup, season after season [Kelly Cutrone] is consistently more interesting than anything on the runway.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “What everyone loves about Kelly Cutrone is that she isn’t afraid to tell it how it is.”

    Elle

  • “She remains the same tough cookie with a soft, melty centre…Cutrone invites us to join her on this new journey; and only an apathetic person would refuse. The final destination will be different for everyone, but at least we can be confident we’ll end up somewhere.” 

    Globe and Mail (Toronto)

  • “Cutrone works in an industry that is superficial and fickle, but she’s the real deal. Her advice rings true no matter what field you’re in.”

    Associated Press

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanne | 2/20/2014

    " GREAT BOOK FOR TODAY'S WOMAN OR YOUNG WOMAN INSPIRING & INSIGHTFUL, EASY TO READ AND FUN! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joyce | 2/12/2014

    " Only thing I really got from reading this book was the curiosity about Eleanor Roosevelt. I'm going to follow up on that and learn more about her. Otherwise, the language really put me off and the topics covered were marginal to my life situation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mel Vegas | 2/12/2014

    " Everything you'd expect from a Kelly Cutrone book -- upfront & funny with a little bit of Eastern religion mixed in (which I personally find to be a little hoaky). Really enjoyed it as expected! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah Lee Grunden | 2/10/2014

    " It was too short! And too ADHD! But Kelly Cutrone is awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/10/2014

    " A quick read (although I stretched it out because I was doing GMAT prep). I agree that it isn't as in your face as the last book and is a touch more preachy, but I genuinely enjoyed it. I love that she's not afraid to put her emotions and flaws on the table for the world to see; it's very inspiring. The main idea that I got is to reach for your goals and make sure that you are living in a healthy positive environment. Something that I need to being crafting in my own life. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christopher Hicks | 2/9/2014

    " I was really looking forward to reading this book. I enjoyed her first book about being a Fashion Publicist and I loved her reality show. This book however was a complete waste of time. This is what happens when someone becomes popular and their publisher wants a second book fast. It's full of nonsensical new age drivel. The only good things about it are it's only 180 pages long and you read it for free at the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 2/5/2014

    " Ahhh, Kelly Cutrone..you speak my language. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mallory Cyr | 1/30/2014

    " Definitely not as hard hitting for me as her first novel, but I continue to find Kelly to be an inspiration to all young, strong women trying to find their way today. It got a little out there for me as she talked a lot about her spiritual exploration, and although I'm very open to that, I found it got tiresome. Definitely worth a read if you're a fan, but don't expect the same pow of if you have to cry go outside "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 1/13/2014

    " I think Kelly Cutron from @Peoplesrev is amazing! Her books are entertaining while teaching you things you really need to know in this business. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 TwilightNewborn | 1/11/2014

    " Not as interesting as her first book. The book's concepts are interesting, but Cutrone can get way off-topic and preachy. My favorite chapter involved her visit to the Elenor Roosevelt Library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronica | 1/6/2014

    " I appreciated Kelly's candor and mostly her honesty about her own spiritual journey and growth. She has truly defined "happiness" for herself and I can respect that she wants to support other young women on their own career/personal/spiritual paths. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lizzy | 12/28/2013

    " Rambly book, kind of all over the place. I couldn't bring myself to finish the whole book. I wanted to enjoy it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/26/2013

    " There were some gems of wisdom sprinkled here and there but for the most part, I wasn't entertained as I was in her first book. This book seemed like her response to the pressure of putting out a second book and it fell short for me. Sorry Kelly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dy-an | 12/15/2013

    " Yup, that's pretty much the way I see things, too. It's hard to not like a book you agree with so much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leanne Ellis | 12/14/2013

    " i wasnt expecting it to be as prophetical as it was but it definitely got me thinking about a few things. if you respect kelly cutrone i recommend it :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane Baker | 12/6/2013

    " Not as good as her first. Interesting, but preachy. I recommend Tim Gunn's book for people interested in fashion people. You can hear his voice in that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Audino | 12/4/2013

    " I will adopt changes in my life from this book! It is a straight forward, no-nonsense book that gets your attention. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Josh | 8/11/2013

    " Some interesting philosophy, but nowhere near as fun as the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lezlee Hays | 2/25/2013

    " I really liked this book. It's a quick read - took me only a few hours to finish it. I like Kelly. Yes, her language is a bit harsh. But this book really offers some nice wisdom in an unconventional way as to how to nurture your spiritual side, be conscious about your life, and find happiness. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sora | 1/31/2013

    " I preferred Kelly Cutrone's first book over this one. In this book, she speaks heavily to her religious beliefs and spirituality. It's not as compelling as her first book. But, her personality and wit still shine through. Honestly, this book was all over the place. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Casey | 12/22/2012

    " I loved Kelly's first book ("If You Have to Cry, Go Outside") but I found this one to be preachy and corny. It seemed very thrown together. I hate to say these things, as I have been a fan of Kelly Cutrone for many years, but I have to keep it real. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassandra | 12/13/2012

    " Normal gets your nowhere is an interesting follow up to Kelly's first book. Although its light on actual career advice, which is what I love about Kelly, the anecdotal life advice did have a lot to offer a reader. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shay | 5/26/2012

    " Well, I ended up reading about half of this...got annoyed. It bothers me that someone who is making their living from promoting and selling stuff is telling the reader how bulls**** the media is. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Allie | 3/30/2012

    " I loved her first book. I absolutely hated this one. It was self-indulgent and had no cohesion. I couldn't read most of it. I would start a chapter and then about a page into it, sigh and try the next one. So very disappointed... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justina Willis | 2/14/2012

    " I like her. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachel | 2/5/2012

    " Couldn't get past the first few chapters of this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 1/27/2012

    " Kelly Cutrone is known for being a straight shooter; the tone of this book is no different. I like that she encourages us to be unique and to be caring about our communities. If you're offended by profanity (and in that case, you're probably not a Kelly Cutrone fan anyway), don't read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Benincasa | 9/24/2011

    " I just want to marry Kelly Cutrone already. Jesus Christmas in a manger, she is a boatload of fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria | 6/26/2011

    " I "read" this as an audiobook. Which I would recommend to ANYONE who comes across this title, because it is read by miss Kelly herself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 5/23/2011

    " I will adopt changes in my life from this book! It is a straight forward, no-nonsense book that gets your attention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 5/21/2011

    " Fantastic read for twenty-somethings who battle staying spiritually in-tune in today's world. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 5/4/2011

    " Classic Kelly Cutrone on media, love, sex, humanity and death. A must read. "
