Lately I've got quite bored of Louise Bagshawe's books but this offering from earlier in her career appealed to me so much that I recently bought it again to re-read.

Louise Bagshawe’s hugely enjoyable first novel charts the decade long feud between former best friends turned bitter enemies, fiery American Topaz Rossi and poor little rich girl Rowena Gorden. The 2 career girls fight their way from students at Oxford University to the top of their respective careers in the magazine and record business, trying to destroy each other while accumulating fabulous riches, boyfriends and dresses, dresses, dresses along the way. Though it’s slightly more realistic Career Girls has more than a hint of the Jackie Collins bonk-buster. At one point a character remarks "its like the eighties never ended" in regard ...
