To celebrate the publication of Liz Jones’s first novel, 81/2 stone, about a woman’s quest to be exactly that, and which is ‘the funniest novel since Bridget Jones’s Diary’, according to Liz’s mum, who is long dead, the UK’s most popular newspaper columnist goes on the road with her not inconsiderable collection of Jimmy Choos to enlighten the women of Britain (and a smattering of enlightened/brow beaten-to-come-along men) about the horrors of the glossy world of high fashion, a world in which the people are so stupid Liz once saw the name ‘Kate Moose’ on the back of a front row chair.
She will regale you with tales of what it was like to be a magazine editor travelling the world in search of the perfect pedicure, corralling Hollywood stars to grace the cover (which Oscar winner needed air brushing to make her put on weight, and which stick insect supermodel has cellulite?), before being sacked (though she did manage to smuggle 22 designer handbags out the building).
