The director of entertainment promotions at Hearst Magazines stands just 4-foot-2. But she doesn’t have dwarfism. Nor is she a paraplegic. Lauren Ruotolo has McCune-Albright syndrome, and discusses it in her new book, "Unstoppable in Stilettos: A Girl's Guide to Living Tall in a Small World", with "Model Talk" host Isobella Jade. Lauren Ruotolo has spent most of her life seeing the world from a unique angle—upward facing, and she could have gone the wheelchair route, but that was never a path Lauren wanted to travel. Instead Lauren rocks really awesome stiletto heels. And as the author of Unstoppable in Stilettos: A Girl's Guide to Living Tall in a Small World, she brings hard-earned wisdom and inspiring life experiences to offer you a unique perspective that you can apply to your own life. Lauren is the director of entertainment promotions at Hearst Magazines in New York City, where she is responsible for developing strategic key partnerships with television and cable networks, music labels, and movie studios. Lauren joined Hearst Magazines from TV Guide magazine, where she was the director of consumer marketing and promotions and created the first-ever newsstand promotion in the United States with a CD on the cover. Ruotolo's first-person essay, 'Get Shorty,' was published in Marie Claire magazine in 2009 and was one of the most responded-to articles in the magazine's history. Ruotolo is on the advisory board of GlamourGals Foundation, Inc., Love Our Children USA, and is an active member in the New York chapter of Women in Communications.
