And the Oscar Goes To...

Even though Celebutantes came out like a year ago, I just read it like 2 months ago. I really enjoyed this book a lot, even though there was a lot of name dropping and it got confusing. From Publisher's Weekly:

"After a disastrous turn acting and bedding her superhunk co-star, Lola Santisi, 26 and the daughter of famed director Paul Santisi, swears off actors and acting for good. But Lola agrees to be the Hollywood ambassador for Best Gay Forever designer Julian Tennant, to help get a major actress to wear one of his dresses at the Oscars. Lola woos an array of glitterari, each more self-absorbed than the next in the runup to Graydon Carter's famed Vanity Fair bash, and competes against the ruthless Prada ambassador Adrienne Hunt for the plum actor bods. There's up-to-the-minute star chatter and fashion name-checking throughout; wonderfully dead-on moments as Lola negotiates underlings to get on set; and a possibly fatal relapse of actor fever. The shallowness is more severe than Angelina's neckline, but that's the point, and it quickly becomes imperative to discover just who is going to wear Julian Tennant to the Oscars." (Feb.)

BTW: The authors of Celebutantes, Amanda Goldberg and Ruthanna Khaligi Hopper, are also daughters of Hollywood directors and actors, so they are considered as Hollywood royalty.

The videos below will give you an inside look/background on the characters/Lola's BFFS.
