Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family, and Finding the Perfect Lipstick

Getting The Pretty Back: Friendship, Family, And Finding The Perfect Lipstick

by Ringwald, Molly

Synopsis: To her millions of fans, Molly Ringwald will forever be sixteen. As the endearing and witty star of the beloved John Hughes classics "Sixteen Candles", "Pretty in Pink", and "The Breakfast Club", Molly defined teenage angst, love, and heartbreak. While remembered eternally as the enviable high school princess Claire, or the shy, vulnerable Samantha, Molly has just celebrated her fortieth birthday. Facing this new angst-inducing time in her life, Molly embraces being a woman, wife, mother of three, actress, and best friend with her trademark style, candor and humour. In "Getting the Pretty Back", Molly encourages every woman to become 'the sexiest, funniest, smartest, best-dressed, and most confident woman that you can be.' She shares personal anecdotes and entertaining insights about the struggle to get through the murky milestones and identity issues that crop up long after the prom ends. Whether she's discussing sex and beauty, personal style, travel and entertaining, motherhood, or friendship, Molly embodies the spirit of being fabulous at every age, and reminds us all that prettiness is a state of mind: it's the part of you that knows what you really want, that takes risks. Lavishly illustrated by Ruben Toledo, "Getting the Pretty Back" is sure to charm women of all ages with Molly's unforgettably personal, refreshingly outspoken take on life, love, and, of course, finding that perfect red lipstick.
