Welcome, Your Highness.

If you’ve picked up this book, you know who you are. You have a taste for life’s finer things: champagne with breakfast, custom lingerie, and kitten heels—even in the snow. At the office, you’re a corporate merger of style and substance, flawlessly handling the most difficult clients or performing life-saving surgery wearing snakeskin stilettos. Your romances play out like De Beers moments (well, in your mind anyway). And above all, you know instinctively that the real road to enlightenment begins with entitlement.

Princess is a celebration of the princess in every woman—a witty, delightful handbook for building your own happily ever after. You’ll learn (and raise!) your PQ (Princess Quotient), tackle the PSAT (Princess Self-Assessment Test), and answer the age-old princess question: Is having it all ever really enough? Paying homage to the fine art of pampering, the princess rules of entertaining, the princess pooch, and of course, Prince Charming, Princess is sure to be a favorite. After all, it’s about you.

From the Trade Paperback edition.


“Perhaps we all would have gotten a lot further in life if Feminism had been called Princess-ism. In Princess, Francesca Castagnoli creates a world in which you not only live the fairy tale, you get to write it too. Wicked stepmother not required.” —Lucy Danziger, editor in chief, Self

“Principessa Castagnoli gives you carte blanche to indulge every whim you’ve ever had—with style. Go for it!” —Simon Doonan, Creative Director of Barneys and author of Wacky Chicks

“A funny, insightful guide to the art of making your inner princess match your outer tiara.” —Michael Musto, Village Voice

“Luckily, after thirty-one years, I’ve finally found my manual, and life makes a lot more sense now. This book is required reading for princesses and those who love them.”
—Atoosa Rubenstein, editor in chief, Seventeen
