Siobhan Bonnouvrier - Allure US Fashion Director
Beauty Break! Catching Up With Allure's Fashion Director, Siobhan Bonnouvrier

March 21, 2013

Over a decade after joining Allure, the magís current fashion director, Siobhan Bonnouvrier, has carved out the supersuccessful beauty glossyís style-centric angle, learned aplenty from the titleís founding editrix Linda Wells and longtime creative director Paul Cavaco, and, at long last, pared down her own beauty loot collection. Teach us your tricks, SiobhanÖ

How has your job evolved since you started at Allure a decade ago?
I came initially to cover market when someone was on maternity leave. When that person came back, I switched over to doing sittings; thatís where I got my training. Then, I slowly took on more and more responsibility as the years passed.

How does your gig as fashion director differ from when you were formerly style director at the mag?
Itís really about taking on different responsibility and overseeing the department. Itís more reaching out to designers and featuring them in profiles. I definitely go on more market appointments. Between all of that and my shoots, itís a full plate! All in all, our department has around 10 people.

How does fashion fit into the narrative of a beauty magazine?

We meld beauty and fashion together, actually: they are one in the same. Women looking for great hair color also pay attention to what bag theyíre buying and what shoes they wear. Weíve tried to present beauty in more of a contextóas a means of showing an environment and a womanís lifestyle. Fashion really helps tell this story, and Allure has made a bit of a move from studio-shot pieces to an environment that shows a lifestyle. Weíve been paying more attention to highlighting personal style, too, which I think has garnered some attention.

Is beauty paramount to every story in Allure, including the fashion pieces?
Itís definitely something I pay attention to, no matter what I am shooting. I really try to think out hair and makeup for every fashion storyótheyíre very time intensive!

In the past 10 years, youíve worked quite closely with Allure EIC Linda Wells and creative director Paul Cavaco. Rapport report, s'il vous plait!
I feel so fortunate to be somewhere where I genuinely like the people I work with. It definitely breeds a lot of confidence, trust, and creativity. Iíve learned an amazing amount from both Linda and Paul: They are both so good at what they do. I almost feel like I have both Linda and Paul sitting on my shoulders. I can sometimes hear their voices while Iím working [laughs].

Whatís the best Linda-ism the editrix has imparted on you?
Her vision as an editor to stay on track, in terms of the point of anything weíre working on. Linda always remembers the point of the shoot, which is very helpful! It can actually be very difficult to not take a left turn in the process.

Do you ever hang out with Linda or Paul outside the office?

Linda and I spend a lot of quality time together in Europe so thatís its own experience! Paul and I like to go to lunch. We love Japaneseówe hit up Haru sometimes. Thereís another place around the corner from Conde Nast on 44th Street that we often go to as well.

Whatís your relationship like with beauty productsóare you a minimalist at this point?
Yes, I am. Iíve turned the corner. I used to have bags of products; my bathroom and closets would be overflowing with beauty stuff that I thought Iíd try at at some point. Now I only keep purely what I love and actually use!

How insane is your NYFW grind, compared to eds at fashion titles?
Itís pretty chaotic, but I think everyoneís in the same boat. Itís a mad dash, running back and forth to shows and the office. Itís never a dull momentÖ

Do you love or loathe traveling for fashion shoots?

Every shoot is really its own movieóI tend to really like trips, which happen seasonally. My favorite shoots have been such adventures. Anything can happen. Paul is the complete opposite: he hates traveling for shoots!

What?!
It is exhausting! A lot of people who donít do shoots assume that Iím going on vacation when I shoot. Itís funny, because I am actually going straight to a meeting or the set right away when I land. Itís far from not stressful. Iíve done a lot of shoots at spas, which is very ironic. Everyone else in the place has cucumbers on their eyes, and Iím running around drenched in sweat.
