I am very pleased to announce that Caroline Weber will give the Keynote Address at The Urban Catwalk. Caroline Weber received her Ph.D. in French literature from Yale University (1998) and her BA in Literature from Harvard University (summa cum laude, 1991). Weber is a specialist in eighteenth-century French literature and culture, with particular emphasis on the Enlightenment and the French Revolution. More recently, she published Queen of Fashion: What Marie-Antoinette Wore to the French Revolution (Henry Holt, 2006/Picador, 2007). A study of the political impact of Marie-Antoinette’s controversial clothing choices, Queen of Fashion made the LA Times best-seller list and was selected as a Notable Book of the Year by The New York Times and a Best Book of the Year by Washington Post Book World and Borders Books and Music. Queen of Fashion has already been published in multiple paperback print runs and appeared in several European and Latin American translations; it is currently being translated for a Chinese edition. Her articles have been published in The Huffington Post, The New York Times, Vogue, and W magazines.
