Following the footsteps of The Hills co-star Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port penned her own advice book titled True Whit, which debuted on Tuesday. She appeared at a signing in Tribeca, New York City to promote the It Book publication on the same day.
The tagline, Designing a Life of Style, Beauty and Fun, sums it up. The guide consists of Whitney’s personal stories about her career, friends, family and relationships and is aimed toward twenty-somethings.
Although not simply a style book, True Whit is definitely is a written from a fashionista’s point of view. A few sample pages on Whitney’s official website reveal a section on sex appeal, which is achieved through lacy panties, a sexy bra, and stilettos. Not that Ms. Port herself needs any help from high heels with her 5’10’’ model frame.
Although targeted toward young women, the book will certainly attract a teen audience, considering the author’s popularity from previous reality shows. In The Hills and The City, Whitney has consistently demonstrated a serious attitude toward work and a scandal-free lifestyle. There is no doubt that she fits perfectly in the shoes of a good role model for young girls.
The publisher describes the book as a “conversational, fun, and candid guide for girls looking to start out [in life] with style.” This might translate into the book reading a bit “fluff.” However, this by no means implies low performance. It will likely do well because it seems to speak the language of its target audience.advice book, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Lauren Conrad, new york city, role model, style book, The City, The Hills, Tribeca, True Whit, whitney port
