As the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, Cleo and Dolly magazines and a newspaper columnist, Mia Freedman has seen it all - and written about it too. From rising hemlines to fallen stars, the minutiae of Brazilian waxes to the ???Do I look fat in this???? divide between the sexes, Mia has pondered issues big and small and distilled them into hilariously charming tales. Mia gives full rein to her passion for fashion, charting the trends - both ridiculous and valid - that cause grown women to obsess over their mirrors, and also astutely observes the complexities of relationships between not just men and women, but women and their female friends. In between all of that, she movingly describes her path through motherhood, looks askance at several cultural trends and embraces new technologies. The New Black is a handbook for modern girls, and guys, trying to make sense of the new millennium - and wondering what the hell they???re going to wear this Saturday night.
