Special Guests: Backstage Miami 2013

Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele

Oribe Hair Care is proud to announce that legendary fashion stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele will be partnering with Oribe to style Backstage Miami.

When it comes to matters of style, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele is in a class all her own. The French fashion editor has been leaving her eccentric mark on the fashion industry, from editorials to ad campaigns and runway presentations, for more than 30 years. A constant opponent to trends, Carlyne抯 success in fashion has been a result of her personal taste for mixing high and low pieces, vibrant colors and generous amounts of bijoux. With no comprehension for dull or boring, Carlyne styles with the idea that fashion, above all else, is about having fun.

Born in St. Tropez, Carlyne developed a taste for fashion early on. She would watch as her mother, a countess, and the other fashionable inhabitants of the charming Provencal town effortlessly combined haute couture with everyday pieces in a chic way that would later define her signature.

Upon moving to Paris in the 60s, Carlyne interned at Marie Claire and Depeche Mode before going to work at French Elle in 1977. In 1985, she moved to New York to help launch the American version of the magazine, but was persuaded by Cond Nast Editorial Director Alexander Liberman to come to Vogue, where she remained as Fashion Director for 10 years. It wasn抰 long before Carlyne was running the show, lending her colorful and exuberant style to many memorable editorials, including Anna Wintour抯 first cover as Editor in Chief in November 1988. At Vogue, Carlyne showed American women how to take the runway to the streets with boldness and ease.

And then there were the supermodels. Along with photographer Steven Meisel, makeup artist Francois Nars, Oribe and others, Carlyne helped to define the look of the supermodel era, turning Naomi, Christy, Linda and others into household names.

After her time at Vogue, Carlyne freelanced for Elle and styled various advertising campaigns. Today, she does editorial work with V Magazine, Italian Vogue, Vogue Brasil, Vogue Japan and WSJ. Magazine. She regularly works with top photographers such as Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Inez & Vinoodh, Patrick Demarchelier and Peter Lindbergh. Her current advertising campaign work includes Chanel, Dior and Louis Vuitton.

Oribe is thrilled to have his longtime friend, collaborator and inspiration styling THE SHOW for Backstage Miami.
