Before there was Kate, and before there was Naomi, and before there was Claudia, there was Robyn Peterson. Catwalk Confidential tells her story. Part fairy-tale, part memoir, part romance, this funny, cautionary and at times moving tale tells the story of 16 year-old Robyn fresh from Miami, who gets caught up in the world of high fashion amidst the boulevards of Paris in the early 1970s. Robyn became one of the top models of the period, working with photographers such as Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin and designers Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent and Kenzo. Her face appeared on the covers of Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire. Amidst this whirlwind life of glamour, sex and drugs, Robyn discovers there is one thing to fear above all else - age - there is always a younger girl waiting to step into your shoes.
