Show synopsis In her fourth novel, THE LIPSTICK JUNGLE, best- selling author Candace Bushnell re-creates a real-life world as compelling and fascinating as SEX AND THE CITY. Based on Bushnell's observations about life in a city filled with bright, ambitious and successful women, this is a world in which the women are often more powerful than the men, and the rules about relationships are meant to be broken. In THE LIPSTICK JUNGLE, high fashion meets the powerful women who actually wear it. Victory Ford, fashion designer: Single, beautiful, creative and unconventional she is the darling of the fashion world; Nico O'Neilly, editor-in-chief: Glamorous and powerful she is married with an eight-year-old daughter and is the brilliant editor of Bonfire Magazine - the pop-culture bible. Wendy Healy, President, Parador Pictures; A down-to earth, hard working mother of three, she is one of the most important and successful women in the cutthroat movie business. Following these determined but likeable leading ladies through the ups and downs of their careers, their marriages and their affairs, Candace Bushnell shows us how three strong women stay at the top of their fields in the toughest town in the world.
