Vogue Italia Feature

I was really honored to be asked by Vogue Italia to interviewed for the Vogue Black section of their site.

I usually cringe when I see pictures or interviews of myself, but I really love the way the feature turned out, especially as I had so much fun getting dressed up with the stylists on set.

My favourite was the Antonio Berardi purple dress.

You can check out my interview Vogue.it.

    I came to my computer a bit late this morning, and what a great surprise. You looked beyond amazing, really GORGEOUS!!! But I really loved the interview especially, how you are so chic yet still honor your family and your culture, how rooted you are and that is an important quality to me, so you really have it all, beautiful, smart and knowing exactly who you are. Every day you entertain me and that means a lot to me to have that in my days….

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 17:28 #

      Great to hear.

      Glad to put a smile on your face and entertain you with my dislike for black pumps.

  2. Eliza June 24, 2011 at 16:54 #

    Congratulations, Catherine. You look beautiful and, more importantly, sounded like a smart woman. Thanks for sharing your insights and a bit about your personal life. Bravo.

    Also, it must have been so much fun! The shoes!! Loved the last outfit – so romantic but modern.

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 17:28 #

    I just noticed something. I’ve seen you write on many occasions, “Well If I had her body, I would show it off too,” or things of that nature. Well how bout if I had your body FC! Long,lean,great legs, amazing bum, lol I seen you in that purple dress. Your gorgeous and quite an inspiration.(:

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 15:40 #

  14. Louisa June 24, 2011 at 15:17 #

    Oh and I forgot to add – while shopping I often think about how your fashion critiques have influenced my own sense of style. I always loved fashion but believe I have developed a keener eye, thanks to you. xox

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 15:35 #

      that is a huge compliment. I’m honored.

  15. Louisa June 24, 2011 at 15:15 #

You come across as beautiful, intelligent and so well dressed I think you need to appear on this blog more often! 🙂 I have been checking RCFA almost every day for what must be years (after stumbling upon it from your dvb blog) so once again thank you, congratulations and please keep up the wonderful work! Louisa from Australia xoxox

  16. From Russia With Love June 24, 2011 at 15:02 #

    I foretell that some day it would be honour for Vogue to feature you in their magazine not vice versa.
    Beautiful face, killer legs. What else to wish? An access to designer’s clothes like Anna Dello Russo’s. I think that will happen in 2 years.
    Congratz 🙂

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 15:37 #

      A day in Anna’s close would be a dream

      Thanks x

  17. robbie June 24, 2011 at 14:57 #

    FC you look jaw droppingly beautiful through out the whole interview. so incredible that you are getting even more coverage from the media epsecially the likes of vogue 🙂 you deserve every bit of success you are recieving.

      grazie mille 😉

  19. Orchee June 24, 2011 at 14:48 #

    I don’t know if I can add anything to what has already been said, but I do want to reiterate that you are both intelligent and beautiful in the video.
    What really keeps me coming back to your site over countless fashion blogs is your voice. Its strong, unique and well informed. And influential – certainly, you’ve changed my entire perception of black pumps and what animal print can do to an outfit!

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 14:57 #

      LOL…I love that people say that they no longer look at black pumps in the same way 😉

      Thanks for your comment.

      Glad to learn you can get you fashion fix just from my blog.

  20. lee June 24, 2011 at 14:47 #

    amazing video! hope your success continues!

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 14:58 #

      with your support it will 😡

  21. Linda June 24, 2011 at 14:14 #

    You looked smoking in that purple dress! You were very well spoken and I found your comments about growing up in an African community interesting, especially about not wearing black even to a funeral. Your hard work and success are an inspiration to women everywhere. 🙂

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 14:18 #

      Thank you.

      I hope I can be an inspiration to many women out there.

  22. Aditi June 24, 2011 at 14:13 #

  24. SkirtTheIssue June 24, 2011 at 14:12 #

    Congratulations Catherine, what a lovely acknowledgement of your work, i’m so proud of you! It’s quite funny the way blogs infiltrate our lives- living on the other side of the world (Aust), I log onto your site first thing in the morning to see the updates from overnight, and so for quite a few years you and your readers have been the first contact I have with other people in my day- it’s great to share that quiet moment with other’s who share this crazy like-minded obsession with fashion (and it’s translation to the red carpet), before the whirlwind of real life begins! Keep up the fabulous work x

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 14:19 #

      Thank you.

      I’m still learning about fashion and business everyday.

      It’s a pleasure to share this blog with you all and for you all to respond so well to it. x

  25. Pati June 24, 2011 at 14:06 #

    Congratulations! You look fabulous on the pictures !!! And the video is great too – love the “if you´ve got it, flaunt it” part! 🙂

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 14:19 #

      lol…that’s my moto 😉

  26. Fromchi-town June 24, 2011 at 14:03 #

    love your style (I’m addicted to animal print lately… of course I’m not wearing, but I did convince my mom to wear it lol)

    Congrats FC! I’ve been a regular reader for quite some time now and it never fails to amaze me how quickl you keep updating the site. I check the site two, three times in a day! I’m addicted to it!

    And I love the clothes you wore in your interview! I can’t wait to start earning and come to a position where I can afford the clothes and shoes shown here!

    I’m glad that the bigger publications are finally considering you as they should. I guess they are just afraid that people like you might upscale them some day

    Good luck for the future FC!

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 13:50 #

      Thank you for your kind words.

      I can’t wait until I can afford these clothes too 😀

      It’s been a magical journey that’s for sure x

  41. Martin June 24, 2011 at 13:04 #

    You needn’t cringe at all. You look FABULOUS! Quick question (feel free not to answer if you don’t feel like doing so), how do you feel about being featured in the “Black” section of the site? People have raised criticisms about the site’s decision to have special sections devoted to “black” and “curvy”, arguing that it encourages separation and segregation. What are your thoughts?

    Just quietly, if I had my way and I were the editor of vogue.it, I’d have you plastered all over the website’s front page.

    • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 13:11 #

      Thank you. You are very sweet.

      I never understood the criticism of the “Black”, “Curvy” section.

      I’m happy that both have a prominent space on Vogue.it.

      No other mainstream publication caters to either market.

      At some point it will no longer be an issue, but for now I’m happy they exist.

      • moja31 June 24, 2011 at 15:08 #

        well they could always just cater to us in their main publication and site, like the rest of their “normal” consumers. but anyhoo, you look fabulous, and congrats on the recognition.

        • Fashion Critic June 24, 2011 at 15:36 #

          thanks.

          That day will eventually come
