The Vogue Factor

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In May 2012 Kirstie Clements was unceremoniously sacked after thirteen years in the editor’s chair at Vogue Australia. Here 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.

From Publishers Weekly

03 March 2014 – Clements, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Australia and coauthor of In Vogue: 50 Years of Australian Style, delivers readers inside the rarefied world of luxury publishing in this memoir. From her start as the magazine's receptionist, an exuberantly ambitious Clements quickly moved up the ranks, doing everything from scraping gum off a sidewalk for a photo shoot to reorganizing hosiery drawers. She meets impossibly chic senior staffers with valuable knowledge to impart and grueling taskmasters who demanded perfection from themselves and everyone around them. Indeed, writes Clements, "Nothing was ever good enough. A philosophy that could drive you mad or spur you to do better." Clements held fast to that attitude throughout her ascent, and remained endearingly self-aware when other professional fashionistas may have and did fall prey to an exaggerated sense of self. Along the way she rubbed shoulders with fashion, beauty, and pop culture royalty (including Karl Lagerfeld, Giorgio Armani, Cate Blanchett, and American Vogue editrix Anna Wintour) and actual royalty (Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark). Clements's journey is an enjoyable, dishy ride.
