    The launch is part of Marie Claire’s 20th anniversary celebrations, which have also included the recent launch of the Marie Claire Beauty Academy, Marie Claire Makeovers and MC TV. CEO Sarah Curran says: ‘So, Marie Claire is now 20 years old. And, like most of us, she’s looking even better now than she did then. I would say that I wasn’t at my best aged 15, something even my mother would agree with, thanks to the usual teenage charm, but at least I’d gone past poodle-perm stage – that was particularly ugly.

    ‘Anyway… I have really strong memories of Marie Claire in my teens. I was already aware of its existence thanks to my older French cousin Anne, who would let me read through her collection. She was very patient with her Anglo-French family member, who would descend on Nice for summer and, thanks to very strong puberty blues, caused chaos and drama at every occasion. I was high maintenance, even back then. I really remember the impact Marie Claire had on me: I was strangely proud of it being French, and I think it was probably the first time I welcomed being different from my very English girlfriends, at my very English school.

    ‘So, here’s to MC, who changed and influenced many a young girl’s life, and long may she continue to do so! Now, where’s that champagne? All this talk of my teenage years and puberty blues has left me needing a drink!’
