I really do understand why people hate reality TV and I’ll support most of the arguments. But I’m also guilty of watching, getting hooked and following all of the “stars” on social media. The Kardashian’s, Robertson’s and Rich Kids are a few that have stuck around on my IG feed. I know, I know.. but I can’t look away!
So when a show like House of DVF combines reality with a high-end fashion empire, you know I won’t miss it. Two seasons have past now and Diane Von Furstenberg has hired two brand ambassadors to represent her famous fashion lines around the globe. During the second season, I rooted for Hanna Beth (check out her blog here) from the beginning. She was a bit of a mystery, but her style was to die for, and she pulled out the win. Then she released a book in January which was pre-ordered, signed and on my doorstep a few days later.
Covered In Glitter is a short, easy read about HB’s life before and after the DVF show. She battled with drug and alcohol addiction, had an unstable childhood and overcame it to start a modeling, blogging and fashion career.
Having a true interest in Hanna Beth is key to thoroughly enjoying this book and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who hasn’t followed her or isn’t currently following her. It is written honestly and resembles a collection of blog posts, which I can appreciate, but not everyone will.
I love learning where famous people started and how they got here – they’re real people with real stories and struggles. I have even more biographies on my list to read yet this year, including:
