No, she's not about to replace Emmanuelle Alt as the editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, but she is dabbling in fashion design (mum Carine famously served as muse to Tom Ford and more recently collaborated on a range with Uniqlo). And in a big way: Julia Restoin-Roitfeld has been named creative director of jewellery house Didier Dubot.

Her first collection for the house launches this week in conjunction with Paris Couture Week and will be available at fabled French fashion boutique Colette. WWD reports the first drop includes ornate cuffs, stackable rings and hair jewellery, with the full collection set to launch during New York Fashion Week.

"The main inspiration was my grandmother's ring that I have very fond memories of from my childhood," Restoin-Roitfeld told WWD. "I love details, little tiny things, delicate and feminine.... The creative pairing of different rings and bracelets - stacking - is the key statement of the entire collection."
