Fashion Icon Friday: Caroline de Maigret
Considered a CHANEL muse, in 2011, Caroline de Maigret has been a major player in the fashion industry for years. The French model, music producer, and entrepreneur is the granddaughter of Prince Michel Poniatowski (former Minister of the Interior and Health in France) and the daughter of Count Bertrand de Maigret. She launched her modeling career early on and quickly took the company of esteemed photographers like Terry Richardson and Mario Testino while walking for houses like Balenciaga and Marc Jacobs.
In 2006, Caroline, along with long-time friend Yarol Poupaud, created the French-based music label, Bonus Tracks Records, where they now boast a myriad of eclectic entertainers and musicians.
Because of her contributions to music, she received a nomination by the Cesar Academy (basically the French Academy Awards) for “Best Soundtrack of the Year”. Her dedication to a number of industries and her stunning demeanor seem to be what has gotten our attention. But what are the things we love the most? Her self-driven initiative to be more than just a pretty face; she’s a music aficionado, she’s intelligent, she’s forthright, and she’s definitely an icon.
