Advance Praise for Hijacking the Runway

“It was just a matter of time before celebrities—with their delusions of grandeur and omnipotence—might attempt to conquer the world of fashion. Hijacking the Runway shows who’s making it, who’s faking it and why we’re all along for the ride. Teri Agins delivers a wicked combo: journalism that’s a smashing, fun read.”
—Simon Doonan, author of The Asylum and Creative Ambassador Barneys New York

Hijacking the Runway is rich, gossipy and rewarding in its insights about the romp of celebrities through fashion. A brilliant reporter, Teri Agins documents the clout of Jessica Simpson and the magical yearning of Kanye West, amid other vivid portraits in a story waiting to be told. Agins gets the scoop.”
—Cathy Horyn, former New York Times fashion critic 
“You can always trust that Teri Agins will deliver all the heretofore unknown, deep-dish on the inside workings of the fashion industry. Hijacking the Runway reads as an intimate conversation with one of fashion’s key insiders and is delivered in a voice as quick, sharp and knowledgeable as its author.”
 —Tracy Reese, designer
