In How Not to Look Old, Krupp aided readers in their quest to fend off the ravages of age. In this second outing, she puts her style and beauty savvy—gleaned from her work at GlamourInStyleMore, and People: Style Watch—to work helping women discover and celebrate their slimmer side…the woman knows her stuff…a careful read will reveal that Krupp’s advice—delivered in just the right knowledgeable-yet-commiserating tone—makes excellent sense. When it comes to clothes and the female figure, the author understands how proportion, balance, and color make the difference between lumpy and lovely, frumpy and fabulous.(Apr.) – Publishers Weekly

There is a voyeuristic thrill to reading even sections that don’t apply to your own body type.” – Christina Binkley, Wall Street Journal
