“If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You,” and “Normal Gets You Nowhere,” by Kelly Cutrone, an American fashion publicist, television personality and author. She is the founder and owner of a PR firm, People’s Revolution in 1996, that is one of the most powerful fashion PR companies in the world…producing shows for such artists as Vivienne Westwood, Thierry Mugler, Valentino, Bulgari. And she appeared in the reality shows–“The Hills”, “The City” and “Kell on Earth”. Best described as tough, resilient, strong, maybe because she wears only black clothes, black hair and no makeup that contributes to this portrayal of her. I believe she gained this strength, not by appearance, but rather her inner soul. Like me, she fell in love with NYC during a visit with her parents when she was 16 years old. She decided to move to the city after graduating from Syracuse University by accepting a nursing position. It didn’t last long though. She spent a lot of time at nightclubs, partied hard, married young, opened her own company. New York does that to people…sometimes.
When I found out that she released her books, and I was curious to read and know all about her! What I learned from her is that life can be a struggle! These books give GREAT advice on fashion business, personal lives, fame, and…career!
