Warning: No celeb was spared during the writing of this tongue-in-cheek stroll down the red carpet of fashion, fame, ego, and blinding glitter. Written by the man who isn’t afraid to tell Christina Aguilers her hairdo is a disaster, Red Carpet Diaries could make you feel you know more about Hollywood shtick than Nicole Kidman’s stylist. If you begin to get too much pleasure from Cojocaru’s lizard-skin-jumpsuited journey from ridiculed misfit to #2 on Cynthia Rowley’s speed dial, put the book down and turn on an episode of Antiques Roadshow to calm your heart rate. Also: do not try to operate heavy machinery while reading this book.

Indications: For relief of boredom, wistfulness, insecurity, and bad hair days.

Directions: Read the incredible story of Cojocaru’s rise from schoolyard joke to one-man celebrity status meter. Laugh, cry, lather, rinse, and repeat.

Active ingredient: Unadulterated fashion, style, and wit.

Imbued with style that is pure Steven, and packed with insider gossip from a man who spends his days chatting with Tom Hanks, Charlize Theron, or Sarah Jessica Parker, this irresistible memoir is a peek behind the glamorous façade to the real deal—the dirt beneath the red carpet.

If you cannot recall ever seeing Steven, you should picture a cross between Aerosmith's lead singer Steven Tyler and Mick Jagger with Valerie Bertinelli's hair.

Entertainment Weekly

With a prose style as irrepressible as his kooky TV persona, People style editor and ''Today'' regular Steven Cojocaru charms even when serving up the cattiest Tinseltown tidbits in Red Carpet Diaries: Confessions of a Glamour Boy.
