From Publishers Weekly

They're ravenous. They're ruthless. They live in a strictly hierarchical, alpha-dog, eat-or-be-eaten world. No, it's not a rerun of Wild America; it's the world of dressed-to-the-nines Park Avenue heiresses, aka Bergdorf Blondes, botoxed to within an inch of their barely-into-the-third-decade lives. Our unnamed London-born heroine is New York's favorite "champagne-bubble-about-town" and just as effervescent and exhilarating as a fine bottle of Dom Perignon. Blissfully self-interested and flush with the cheeriness that comes from being, well, flush, Miss Disposable Income 2004 sashays her way through New York society in search of the perfect P.H. (Potential Husband)-"Have you any idea how awesome your skin looks if you are engaged?"-and the perfect butt-shaping pair of Chloe jeans. Despair occasionally strikes when her latest prince turns into yet another toad, but it's nothing an invitation to an uber-exclusive Hermes sale and a gallon or so of Bellinis can't fix. She's got the crème de la crème along with her for the ride, including her best friend, the fabulously wealthy heiress Julie Bergdorf, who is tres supportive of her nervous breakdown=You'll be able to dine out on how crazy you went in Paris for months-and a posse of chattering, Harry Winston-bedecked clones with whom to limo around New York. Tacky? Absolutely. But it's impossible not to be massively entertained by a woman who refers euphemistically to oral sex as "going to Rio" in memory of the first man who suggested she get a Brazilian bikini wax, considers vodka a food group and who holds up glamour as the first of the commandments. This is a savvy and viciously funny trip into a glittery, glitzy world we sure wouldn't want to live in-but by which we're more than happy to be vicariously consumed for the length of a book.

From AudioFile

Thank heavens for Sonya Walger; her superb narration is the only reason to give this insipid novel a listen. She applies distinctive American and British accents to a group of self-absorbed heiresses whose days are filled with such pressing matters as designer clothing sales, skin treatments, and touch-ups of their blonde hair, apparently accompanied by full lobotomies. Walger moves seamlessly into the French and Italian accents used by the equally shallow men they encounter. Unlike many narrators who give no heed to authors' directions, Walger convincingly cries, moans, and sobs right along with the characters, never mind that they're emoting over the lack of such essentials as private jets and crater-sized engagement rings.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Just have Fun!!!! 16 mai 2004
Format:Relié
On en a toutes rêvés, de pouvoir être aussi superficielle, riche à ne plus savoir quoi faire de notre argent, etc...
Lire ce livre est un délice dans le sens que nous sommes heureuses de ne pas l'être (enfin en ce qui me concerne). Un livre délicieux pour la plage cet été, et sympa pour découvrir de supers endroits à NY!!!!
A lire au 1er degré!!!!

Bergdorf Blondes nous peint des new-yorkaises fortunées, capricieuses et névrosées, entre rendez-vous chez le psy, shopping dans les plus chics magasins de la cinquième avenue, soirées mondaines entre socialites et Bellinis chez Cipriani. Si l'histoire qui se trame est plus qu'insignifiante, il faut reconnaître que les considérations tellement superficielles des héroïnes sont hilarantes et que, somme toute, ce roman nous fait passer un bon moment dans le New York scintillant des princesses de l'Upper East.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 totally boring 12 janvier 2007
Format:Broché
I just couldn't read the entire book because I got so bored! Whoever compares it with "The devil wears Prada" will insult Lauren Weisburger. They are just NOT in the same league. The former is just taking advantage of the interest of the general public for People's lives, the likes of Paris Hilton (who's a prime example)...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A little too Bergdorf, and a little too blonde 26 mars 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
In the tradition of Candace Bushnell's "Four Blondes" and "Trading Up" comes "Bergdorf Blondes" by Plum Sykes, a story about Manhattan's best-dressed women, and their fantastically luxurious highlights, heartbreaks, and Hermes Birkin waiting-list woes. In a sense, the unnamed narrator (a self-described champagne bubble-about-town) and her perfectly blonde best friend, Julie Bergdorf, are refreshingly unlike many rich chick-lit heroines: they're not ruthless or mean-hearted, they're oftentimes charming and witty, and their very self-indulgence has a campy quality that comes across as more amusing than petty.
There's a downside: the book never goes anywhere particularly surprising, and the whirl of men-clothes-manicures gets boring and one-dimensional after a while. The characters' very cuteness is a little unnerving as well; I love clothing as much as the next girl, but it's not all that I, or any other girl for that matter, think about. Sykes' writing isn't good enough to make her characters into real people. Rather, they're simply very well-dressed, well-coiffed shells with no interests other than clothes or men, and they're not real enough to make their silliness interesting for more than 100 pages or so.
In conclusion, it's disappointing to reach the end of the book and realize that it doesn't go anywhere: there's no well-fashioned plot, just a series of fragmented episodes that pass for a story, and there's no character growth. No one ever learns to care for anything beyond men, clothes, and grooming, and yet, despite this, they're perfectly happy people. Does that mean the book's not worth reading? No, it is; it's good beach or boredom reading. But you may find yourself losing interest in the incessant themes of designer highlights and rotten men, in which case, "Bergdorf Blondes" becomes very unpleasant to finish.

As an Oxford graduate and an English person I'd just like to apologise to you all for Plum Sykes and Bergdorf Blondes. No, that's all. We're really sorry.

Par Chele Hipp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book was so bad I almost broke my own rule that you have to finish reading any book that you start. It is a completely boring "Briget Jones' Diary" meets "The Nanny Diaries" wannabe novel. Yes, yes, Manhattan party girls are oh so chic, live oh so extravagent and bizarre lives and, have oh so funny perspectives on life. We've had a deluge of novels in the last few years that follow this theme - each attempting to be wittier than the last. I don't know if this book was just an un-fuuny version of the genre or if the genre is played out, but this book was excruciating.
What made this book particularly torturous was that the author is so obviously begging to have it turned into a major motion picture. The book really seemed like more of an exposition for a cute chick flick. The movie would be better than the book. It would have good fashion visuals, attractive characters and predictable dialogue and plot developments. Wonderful qualities for a ninety minute chick flick. Not good qualities for a book that takes more than ninety minutes to read. More than ninety minutes is a waste of time for this tired book.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Depressingly dreadful 23 août 2004
Par Cooper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Initially I thought Miss Sykes was attempting to satirise the ditzy social register scene of the rich women of New York City. If this had been the case, it would have been a brave attempt, and not at all bad for a debut. However, after a few pages it became painfully obvious that there was absolutely no tongue in Miss Sykes' cheek, and that she thought her readers would actually enjoy several hundred pages of irrelevant fashion titbits and vacuous inanities. Are the women of New York really so self-obsessed and, frankly, stupid? And where was the plot? The denouement was clumsy and embarrassing, almost bringing a blush to my cheeks at the audacity of it. I think that Miss Sykes underestimated the intelligence of the average book reader, and overestimated the level of interest in her line of work and her lifestyle. As she obviously isn't going to get many royalties, I at least hope she gets a few freebies in exchange for so much ruthless plugging of designers. How many times can you say 'Marc Jacobs'?

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Bergdorf Blondes 30 août 2004
Par Mira - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Not that I expected much from this book - the same way I did not expect much from the Devil Wears Prada, Trading Up and other so called chick lit books - but I felt insulted reading Bergdorf Blondes. The above-mentioned books at least attempt to be sarcastic and try to describe New York society life with an ironic and sometimes even bitter undertone. However, this read was unfortunately a complete waste of time as well as an insult to the reader. Chick/Glam lit can be great but only if the writer is capable of injecting some cynicism and irony in her writing. Plum Sykes clearly is not!
