Stance on China Olympics
And Genevieve Antoine Dariaux.
OK, so she's not exactly...recent.
In fact, A Guide to Elegance and The Men in Your Life were originally released in the 1960s. I was first introduced to her through Kathleen Tessaro's novel Elegance, which had a fictional character following Madame Dariaux's advice, most of which is timeless. You do have to read it with a 21st century viewpoint, though, taking the advice that best applies to you and leaving some of it to the 1960s (Gloves? Who wears gloves on a regular basis?).
But I love how she alphabetizes the categories (i.e. Accessories, Don Juans) in both books. I love the colors--Tiffany Blue and Bubblegum Pink. And I love how she is wise and elegant, yet still manages to be witty and practical. I think they deserve a place on all ladies' bookshelves.
