A woman who has been named one of the world’s top beauty gurus has been crowned one of UK’s top stars on the biggest beauty magazines.
Catherine Ritchie-Jones, 54, is a global star of beauty and is one of three people on the covers of Glamour and Elle, Britain’s two biggest beauty and beauty-related magazines.
She was also named a New York Times Most Influential Person in 2017.
The other two are the American model Ashley Graham and the Brazilian model Luiza Travade.
Ms Ritchie, who was born in the UK, became a beauty guru when she was just 15.
She has also taught at a number of private schools, including the Metropolitan College of Beauty and the London School of Fashion.
“I’ve always had a love of beauty, but the way I’ve been treated has been so bad I just wanted to change that,” she told the BBC.
“When I was young I had no money, so I went to an auction house for the first time and sold my first pair of shoes.
I got a call from my uncle telling me to go to the auction house and I had to tell them I had just bought a pair of flats.
I said, ‘I don’t have any money so how can I afford to get them?’
I didn’t have a lot of money, and I said to my uncle, ‘Well, I can just sell them’.
“It was a lot. “
It was really tough, so when I went back to the UK I realised that if I didn`t make money I had nothing to do. “
It was a lot.
It was really tough, so when I went back to the UK I realised that if I didn`t make money I had nothing to do.
I wanted to make something that was better for the planet.”
‘Eclipsed’ Catherine has since been recognised as one of Britain’s most influential people for her work as a teacher and has been given a number on the UK`s Most Influenced People list.
The BBC News website has named her the Most Influencer in the world and she has also been given the Queen`s Diamond Jubilee Medal for her contributions to the world of education.
She is also the recipient of a BAFTA and a BAE British Academy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Education.
Ms Graham, who is based in the US, was recently named a Time magazine Woman of the Year.
She had previously worked as a model, singer and actress.
“As a young woman, I was very naive and I was just a bit of a child, so for me to get to be in this position where I could be famous for this work I was absolutely thrilled,” she said.
Ms Travide has a long career as a fashion designer and was named one-third of The Independent`s Fashion 100 for her creative work.
She also worked with fashion brands including Louis Vuitton and Zara.
She previously worked with British fashion house Louis Vuison.
