if you think Brazilian is a nationality, that PJ's are pyjamas, and that Beyond is somewhere far away, then you have never met a Bergdorf Blonde. Plum Sykes' heroine is British but has moved to America -'when i got into Princeton all Mom could say was, but how can you leave England for America? How? How? She obviously had no idea about the oxygen facials.' With her job on a glossy magazine, we follow her into the glamorous world of Park Avenue Princesses who careen through New York in search of the ever elusive fianci, the perfect fake tan and that Chanel from the sample sale. it's the fiance that's most elusive - and in fabulously witty style, Plum Sykes makes us root for her glorious heroine all the way from New York to the South of France and back by PJ (private jet) and finally to a Brown Signed Stately in England - she'll get her Harry Winston and her Vera Wang wedding gown yet.
