Katie Price has launched a style guide to lead the masses into the realms of her plastic fantastic style. She captures the public’s imagination and dominates the gossip magazines. But how much of her advice is actually practical- after all as well as a glamour girl she is a mother of three and a champion horse rider? Is the Katie Price look something that women aspire to or is she just, as Martin Amis recently described her, ‘two bags of silicone’.
Nonetheless many women aspire to follow in the footsteps of the glamour model. And with £30 million in her bank to date, it’s clear that there is a winning formula somewhere. No stranger to literary success her Fourth novel, 'Sapphire', has sold more than 70,000 copies in hardback and her second novel, 'Crystal', outsold that year’s entire Booker shortlist put together.
So I have made the decision to go from Katy to Katie. One similarly named girl’s sartorial exploration of the stylistic and lifestyle tips from a woman who can be described more as all front than front row at the fashion show. Perhaps a week of following La Price’s grooming and dressing tips will give me a chance to discover if my reluctance to sport diamante has been holding me back.
