Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele is a legendary french fashion stylist, who's work and character are so bold and iconic [you have to see this videos!] that you can't help but being inspired by.
She started to work as a Stylist at French Elle magazine, after interning for Marie Claire.
In 1985 she moved to New York to work at Vogue, and in 1988 she styled the very first Vogue Cover for Anna Wintour, photographed by Peter Lindbergh. Which made such a buzz at the time, for putting the look of Guess jeans and a couture Christian LaCroix embellished jacket.
“Me, I love to have fun! I am not an intellectual. Fashion is not intellectual. We are not doctors, you know? We are working in fashion. It should be hot and fun.”
She is the master of high-low garments mix, and she was responsible for the image around the supermodels era in the 90s, styling super models like Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, and Claudia Schiffer.
Nowdays she works for V Magazine, and with photographers Steven Meisel and Mario Testino for both spanish and italian Vogue. In addiction she do several advertising projects, as this latest Mochino FW 2014 campaign that I loved. Check out her featured work here!
