>• Think working the red carpet teaches you nothing about life? Melissa Rivers’ new book shows otherwise. Among her tips:

LOSE WITH GRACE

Awards season is heady, but once you don’t win, they don’t even want your picture at the afterparty. Just suck it up and hold your head high.

LEAVE YOUR EGO AT THE DOOR

If you stumble, laugh. Everybody else is so worried about themselves, they’re not gonna remember what you did.

FIT, FIT, FIT

I have shallow advice as well as deep! You can have a $10 dress or a $10,000 dress—if it doesn’t fit, it’s gonna look horrible.

STAND UP STRAIGHT AND GET THE HAIR OUT OF YOUR EYES

My mom taught me that. Works in every situation.
