When An Innocent Fashion was published in the summer Vanity Fair breathlessly called it The Devil Wears Prada for millennials. Like Lauren Weisberger, 26-year-old author R J Hernández interned at Vogue and had seemingly written a tell-all about his experiences. “A lot of the book was inspired by my time working at Vogue and then afterwards at Elle and W magazine.
