A Retrospective : French Vogue under Edmonde Charles-Roux (1954-1966)
I used the search function and was surprised to see there's no thread dedicated to French Voguer under Edmonde Charles-Roux (1954-1966). It seems the covers and editorials are hard to find

April 62 - Catherine Deneuve

April 65 - Liz Taylor

May 1963 - Audrey Hepburn

that's not much of it!

i guess texts should be an interesting thing to look for at this time.
here is a bio of Edmonde Charles-Roux. she is a major literature person in France.

Edmonde Charles-Roux
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Edmonde Charles-Roux (born 17 April 1920 Neuilly-sur-Seine) is a French writer.


She is the daughter of Francois Charles-Roux, Ambassador of France, member of the Institute of France, and last president of the Suez Canal Company.

A woman in the war

She was, during the World War II, a volunteer nurse, first in a French Foreign Legion unit, the 11th infantry regiment abroad. She was wounded at Verdun in rescuing a legionnaire.

Then she joined the Resistance, as a nurse. After landing in Provence, she was then attached to the 5th Armored Division, where she performed as a nurse but also as a divisional social assistant. She also served in the 1st Foreign Cavalry Regiment (1er REC) and the Mechanized Regiment of the Foreign Legion (RMLE).

Decorated with the Croix de Guerre, she was made Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur in 1945, and received the distinction of vivandière d'honneur by the RMLE at the hands of Colonel Gaultier, corps commander.


In 1946, she joined the staff of a magazine being created, a women's weekly: Elle, where she spent two years. From 1948, she worked for the French edition of Vogue, becoming the magazine’s editor-in-chief in 1954.[1]

Reading Vogue democratized luxury while giving access to the most innovative artists of the time, whether writers as Francois-Regis Bastide, Violette Leduc and Francois Nourissier or photographers like Guy Bourdin, Henry Clarke or William Klein, or designers Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Emanuel Ungaro. By combining ready-to-wear and Pop Art, she connected fashion with any other form of creativity. She left Vogue Paris in 1966, as the result of a conflict for wanting to place a black woman on the cover of the magazine.[1]


Three months later, in 1966, she wrote Oublier Palerme and obtained the Prix Goncourt; she met Defferre the same year and married in 1973. The novel was adapted to film as Dimenticare Palermo in 1990 by Francesco Rosi.

She is also known for publishing her photo stories on the lives of Defferre (L'Homme de Marseille 2001), or that of Coco Chanel (Chanel Time in 2004). She wrote the books of several of Roland Petit ballets including Le Guépard and Nana. She became a member of the Académie Goncourt in 1983, she became president in 2002. In 2008, she was part of the Commission headed by Hugues Gall and charged by Christine Albanel, Minister of Culture, with the post of Director of the French Academy in Rome, Villa Medici.

In April 2010, she was awarded by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, with the knighthood of Commandeur de la Légion d'Honneur .
