The Beauty of Retrospect: Clotilde Week, Part Three

In addition to advertisements for designers, Clotilde also did editorial work for fashion magazines.  She kept that same classy look from her Rive Gauche and Ralph Lauren ads, but her poses added a touch of realism that only a fashion editorial assignment can convey.   


Her determined look is pretty fierce in this assignment from the January 1980 edition of the U.S. edition of Vogue.  In the photo from the September 1980 issue of Harper's Bazaar, below, she shows an aura of classic beauty with modern confidence. 


If Clotilde looks like she has a special knack for wearing clothing of the right fabric for the right occasion, that may be because she took courses in apparel design at the Rhode Island School of Design.  Before she became a model, she was a fabric designer for a textile company.
