If Cathy Horyn of The New York Times has captured Elisabeth Djian's essence in words, Babeth, does so in pictures. Horyn wrote, "Babeth has the intimidating look of a French madam, heightened by stiletto booties, a wink of a black bra and a laugh as free as salt. I once asked Djian what her life was like in the 1980s when, as the fashion director of the influential little magazine Jill, she captured, and created, the ultra-feminine look of that era. Her answer sailed as cleanly as an arrow over my bow. 'Lovers,' she said." While her first magazine, Jill, has remained iconic, Babeth Djian has been busy setting off plenty other cult classics in the world of fashion, in her work at French and Italian Vogue, with Glamour, Mixte and most recently Numero. Some of the most renowned photographers, designers, makeup artists, hairstylists and models in the world began their careers working with Dijian. Accordingly, this album includes illustrations from major names such as Mert Alas & Marcus Pigott, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Nathaniel Goldberg, Karl Lagerfeld, Peter Lindbergh, Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Guido Mocafico, Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello, Liz Collins, Solve Sundbo, Camilla Akrans, Greg Kadel, Dusan Rejlin, Ellen von Unwerth, Paolo Roversi and more.
