The etiquette guide was feted with a book tour around the United States and Europe hosted in various cities by Chloe Sevigny, Milla Jovovich, Nicole Richie, Kate Bosworth, Nate Berkus, Emma Watson, Dasha Zhukova, Lauren Santo Domingo, Karlie Kloss, Margherita Missoni, Alexa Chung and Barbara Pierce Bush.
