Hands raised high, who is ready for September? Anyone? Surely by the time Europe returns from its August holiday it will be raring to go for September and the rest. Japan was ready months ago, however by the looks of that country’s Harper’s Bazaar cover for fashion’s most hallowed month that features none other than Caroline De Maigret. The cover keeps fidelity with Caroline’s closest brands including clothing by Chanel and makeup by Lancôme. In the behind-the-scenes video (featured), Caroline cites the rock & roll as her gateway into a world beyond the golden doors of her education and aristocratic upbringing. “I would go to the [rock] concerts and I discovered suddenly a whole different crowd of people.” Caroline has never lost touch with rock music or the energy behind, which is especially what makes her so right for this September cover deep in the month of July.
