Thinking about a career in fashion? Not sure what it is that defines 'classy?' Wondering how to get your hands on a numbered Tim Walker print? The answers are all here.

How to be classy

If writer Derek Blasberg's stints at style.com or V Mag aren't enough for you to consider him a style authority, consider this: the man has swarms of modeling 'best friends' that he has been observing on a daily basis. Now he wants to tell you how to be a lady, not a tramp: Classy ($11.46) is due out April 6.

Kell on Earth

If you are thinking about working in the fashion industry, read this book first. If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You ($23) by one of New York's most successful fashion PRs (and reality stars), Kelly Cutrone - who has summed up the fashion industry as "war" - is an honest and entertaining account of what it's like. If you still feel like joining in after this, you're probably right for the job.
