Hebe (1925-1987). Journalist. From the 1960s up until her death, she was a fashion editor at the International Herald Tribune. In one of design’s most sparkling and creative periods, she was a lucid, independent, and caustic interpreter of its trends. She was well known for her multi-faceted &b;s, colorful elegance. Nicknamed “the Tunisian from the West” because of her African origins and the dash of her lively, bright style, she made a name for herself as one of the most influential and feared personalities in fashion journalism, and was able to become a critic of shapes and clothing, giving generous and early attention to new talents. Her psychological studies of designers and young stylists remain extraordinary, in timeless portraits ranging from Saint-Laurent to Coveri.
