I Feel Pretty

  |  By Alison McGill

This is most definitely how you should feel on your wedding day and everyday. Just in case you’re struggling to find your inner gorgeousness (Monday mornings in particular can be the time it’s most difficult!), let me direct you to ’80s teen-queen Molly Ringwald’s fun and fabulous new book, Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family and Finding the Perfect Lipstick (It Books, $28). Ringwald is of course famous as late director John Hughes muse, and knows a thing or two about living the beautiful (and not so beautiful) Hollywood life. In Getting the Pretty Back, Ringwald is the ultimate girlfriend cheerleader, encouraging 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 years after you’ve waved goodbye to teenhood. Discussing everything from sex and beauty, personal style, to travel, entertaining, motherhood and friendship, Ringwald embodies the spirit of being fabulous at every age in this book and reminds us that prettiness is a state of mind.
