Samantha Brick, beauty and sheer beastliness – Telegraph
Liz Jones is the former queen of confessional journalism, the woman who really kick-started the genre with her articles, and subsequent books, about her divorce, her eating disorders, her facelift, how her love for animals far outshines her love for people, and most certainly for herself. She is the writer everybody loves to hate, our guilt assuaged because she readily admits to hating herself too. And then along came Samantha Brick, neatly turning that schtick on its head with her breathtaking self-confidence.
Yesterday, Jones, who is 53, made a valiant attempt to reclaim her crown with a piece in which she announced she was turning into the beautiful, youthful Duchess of Cambridge. It was an impressive bit of bandwagon jumping.
