Clements has created a sensation internationally with her tell-all book of an industry whose inner-workings are as strange and shocking as any around. The Devil Wears Prada has nothing on The Vogue Factor.
The most refreshing part of The Vogue Factor is it’s not a model’s ghost written autobiography, or a B-Grade fashion photographer settling old scores. Kirstie Clements was the editor of Vogue Australia for 13 years, and sees the fashion world through a different set of eyes.
During her US book tour she’s been interviewed by Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight and The Huffington Post. She also was featured in the UK’s Daily Mail yesterday, the article can be seen below.
It’s the Australian book that has the world talking, don’t miss your chance to grab a copy from Booktopia today.
In May 2012 Kirstie Clements was unceremoniously sacked after thirteen years in the editor’s chair at Vogue Australia. Here she tells the story behind the headlines, and takes us behind the scenes of a fast-changing industry.
During a career at Vogue that spanned twenty-five years, Clements rubbed shoulders with Karl Lagerfeld, Kylie Minogue, Ian Thorpe, Crown Princess Mary, Cate Blanchett, and many more shining stars. From her humble beginnings growing up in the Sutherland Shire in Sydney to her brilliant career as a passionate and fierce custodian of the world’s most famous luxury magazine brand, Clements warmly invites us into her Vogue world, a universe that brims with dazzling celebrities, fabulous lunches, exotic locales and of course, outrageous fashion.
Amidst the exhilaration and chaos of modern magazine publishing and the frenzied demands of her job, Clements is always steadfast in her dedication to quality. Above all, she is always Vogue.
