Talking Fashion and Fairy Tales With Camilla Morton

-------

Following the success of How to Walk in High Heels (2006), fashion writer—and Dior employeeÔCamilla Morton (pictured here with Gisele Bundchen) is back at it again with A Year in High Heels: A Girl’s Guide to Everything From Jane Austen to the A-List. “I’m so excited! It’s like having a second baby or something,” said the author at her book party at Diane von Furstenberg’s store last night. Designers DVF, Richard Chai, Thakoon Panichgul, and Brian Reyes came out to support the woman who has done the same for them. “Camilla always gave me such amazing reviews, so I’m here to give her a glowing review, too,” said Chai. “Whatever she does is pretty magical.” Morton’s new book includes advice on everything from “How to Go Green” (by Anya Hindmarch), “How to Handle a Bachelorette Party,” and “How to Wear Red,” with monthly muses including Frida Kahlo and Marilyn Monroe, and “Wish You Were Here” postcards from Gisele (L.A.), DVF (NYC), Erin O’Connor (Wales), and Manolo Blahnik (Istanbul), who also penned the foreword. So will there be a third book in the High Heels series? “This girl’s come to the end of her journey,” said Morton, who dedicated the paperback to the late Steven Robinson—John Galliano’s beloved, longtime assistant with whom she worked years ago. “But I have two nonfictions and one fiction under way, and a new series that will come out in 2010. It’s about fashion and fairy tales. With the economic situation, I think now we have to concentrate on happy ever-afters.”
