  The Vogue Factor

The Vogue Factor
From front desk to editor: born on the wrong side of Sydney, Kirstie Clements tells of her audacious beginnings at the reception desk of the grand magazine and her rise to reigning editor.

In May 2012 Kirstie Clements was unceremoniously sacked after thirteen years in the editor’s chair at Vogue Australia. In her début memoir, she tells the story behind the headlines, and takes us behind the scenes of a fast-changing industry.

During a career at Vogue that spanned twenty-five years, Clements rubbed shoulders with Karl Lagerfeld, Kylie Minogue, Ian Thorpe, Crown Princess Mary, Cate Blanchett, and many more shining stars. From her humble beginnings growing up in the Sutherland Shire in Sydney to her brilliant career as a passionate and fierce custodian of the world’s most famous luxury magazine brand, Clements warmly invites us into her Vogue world, a universe that brims with dazzling celebrities, fabulous lunches, exotic locales and of course, outrageous fashion.

Amidst the exhilaration and chaos of modern magazine publishing and the frenzied demands of her job, Clements is always steadfast in her dedication to quality. Above all, she is always Vogue.

A bestseller in Australia (25k plus copies sold), The Vogue Factor attracted huge international media attention after Clements’ revelations that models “eat tissues to stay full and starve themselves for days”.
