Danielle Steel Says San Francisco Has “No Style”

While the Wall Street Journal’s new profile on famed author and former San Franciscan Danielle Steel reveals that she’s very fond of S.F. chocolatier Scharffen Berger, it seems that, overall, she's not really into the City By The Bay—especially its style.
“San Francisco is a great city to raise children, but I was very happy to leave it," she tells WSJ. "There's no style, nobody dresses up—you can't be chic there. It's all shorts and hiking books and Tevas—it's as if everyone is dressed to go on a camping trip. I don't think people really care how they look there; and I look like a mess when I'm there, too.”
Um, ouch...But, more importantly, do you agree with her? Let us know in the comments!
