...Just one of the controversial remarks that Public Relations and Fashion guru Kelly Cutrone has been quoted as saying. I just finished watching her reality tv show Kell on Earth (as recommended by my younger fashionista sister) and I now have great respect for her as a power woman, entrepreneur and human being. She doesn't take b.s. from anyone but she also has a very sensitive and nurturing side to her, proving to be a great mother to young Ava and a caring boss to her faithful staff. I just ran out (on my short lived lunch break) and bought her survival guide "If You Have to Cry Go Outside: and other things your mother never told you" and I can't wait to sink my teeth into it and gain some great business tips from Ms. Cutrone.

If you haven't heard of Kelly Cutrone then you are must likely living under a fashion-less rock as she is a god(dess) in this industry. Have you seen the short video she directed for DKNY's Cozy Sweater? Pure genius. If you are looking for a new reality show to become obsessed over- than Kell on Earth is it- I just wish it was more than one season long! After watching all eight episodes over the weekend (while the boy was flying a remote controlled helicopter around our living room!) I have mixed feelings about a Fashion/PR career- yes you get to work with amazing designers and icons but Kelly's skeleton staff basically has to give up any notion of a social life. I mean these kids are working an average of 16 hour days and as much as I love fashion, I love my evenings and weekends a little more. Now working with Rachel Zoe on the other hand...bananas!
