Catherine Baba is a Parisian stylist who moved to the city of romance, snails and iconically tall monuments from Australia in 1996.
Baba herself is ageless – sources suggest she was born in 1936, making her 79 – but some people believe that she simply claims this year of birth as it’s the year she would have liked to be born.
She’s worked with Givenchy, Ungaro, Balmain, and Chanel, as well as magazines like Dazed & Confused, Vanity Fair and Vogue.
As well as her exquisite style, Baba is also known for her tendency to arrive at fashion shows on a bicycle. Which, of course, she does with impeccable glamour. Here are just a few pictures and Baba quotes to inspire your next commuting outfit…
