Supermodel Carol Alt brings the inside world of high-end fashion modeling into dazzling focus—with a fabulous novel about what it takes to get to the top...and stay there.

And she's discovering that the supermodel life isn't all fluff and glamour. It's long hours, hard work, and even harder choices—like choosing to starve or to never work again.

But does Mac have what it takes to be super? Because deep down—behind the perfect body and million-dollar smile—she's still the same hometown Melody Ann she's always been....

Gorgeous Updos

FEEL FREE TO EXPERIMENT Right after I got out of cosmetology school, one of my first jobs was to create an updo for Sarah Michelle Gellar. Even though they can be challenging, I’ve always loved them because there are endless opportunities to do something really unique and personal. You just have to play around. It isn’t about being exact or perfect. It’s about feeling good.

Except, maybe not. Compare these squares of black and white stripes. The horizontally striped one looks taller and the vertically striped square seems wider, right?
