Join us for a fascinating evening with the first—and only—American to hold the coveted position of Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris.
Joan Juliet Buck will discuss her new memoir, The Price of Illusion, an inspiring tell-all about her journey of self-discovery within the glittering waters of an image-obsessed fashion industry.
An accomplished novelist, critic, essayist, and actress, Buck was raised among famous faces and creative legends from Lauren Bacall to Federico Fellini. But when she reached the height of the magazine world, she found that celebrity-status might not be a dream come true. In this intimate talk, she will share glamorous tales from her time in the creative heart of London, New York, Los Angeles, Milan, and Paris, as well as hard-won lessons about the price of luxury.
