Part of her appeal is also that she doesn't take herself too seriously and is basically totally fabulous, frequently dropping her catchphrase "J'adore, darling" into conversation. We first found out about her when we saw a video interview Diane Pernet (of A Shaded View) did with her, and it immediately became one of our all time favourites (see below), but the original point of this post was to share another video we just found of Catherine Baba, where she gives her definition of style, but we then thought we'd turn it into a general post about her too. Anyway, here it is:
If you never saw the original video of her with Diane Pernet (apologies again to longstanding readers because we always seem to be going on about this) it's here, and you really should watch it because it is so eccentrically wonderful, and generally fabulous:
J'adore, daaahhling, J'ADORE!
"And you really needed your fur coat, huh?" (the interview was in the South of France in spring)
"Darling, it's freeeeeeeezing, no?"
Such total love.. it's exactly how you want fashion personalities to be, but they actually both do it so well and not in a sort of snobby, uptight way.
She more on her website (under construction at the moment) and Myspace.
