Today’s interviewee is most widely-known as half of the host and style experts on the delightful makeover show What Not To Wear on TLC. More recently, she is the author of the beautifully-designed book The Truth About Style, which, in the mode of WNTW, helps women adjust their exterior to reflect what’s so good about their interior. But in this case, she blends the case studies with her own stories about growing up and struggling with skin disease and eating disorder. (Unrelated, one of my favorite things about her is the cool gray streak in her hair, which is protected in her contract as a spokesperson for Pantene.) You can learn a lot more about her by following her on Twitter.
You dedicated the book, in part, to your haters, but you don’t seem like a particularly divisive public figure to me--what do you tend to get hated on for (according to the haters?)
