Praise for Searching for Beauty--The Life of Millicent Rogers:
"Millicent Rogers is truly an American Legend and Cherie Burns has finally given us a wonderful biography about her!"
–Diane Von Furstenberg
"What a fabulous life! Rogers was an American original who charged through her wildly varied career with coruscating originality and maximum style. Hers was a high-wire act of glamour, art, philanthropy, and rapier smarts. With this fine biography, Cherie Burns makes it abundantly clear that, in our sorry age of Paris Hilton brats, they just don't make heiresses like Millicent Rogers any more." —Hampton Sides, bestselling author of "Blood and Thunder"
"Cherie Burns has written a bracing, sex-and-shopping account…"
The Wall Street Journal
"The legacy of an American fashion icon gets her due."
"A finely stitched portrait...."
"A well-researched and entertainingly read able portrait...."
The Albuquerque Journal
"As the book’s title aptly suggests, she believed in beauty."
