An accomplished model, mother and designer, she leads a full life. I am delighted that she is bringing that irresistible 'je ne sais quoi' to the brand," said Cyril Chapuy, global brand president of L'Oreal Paris.

In 1991 she created her own brand, "Ines de la Fressange," and a store on the avenue Montaigne, which was very successful in France, the U.S. and Japan. Since 2003, she has made an active contribution to relaunch the luxury Roger Vivier brand as consultant and brand ambassador.

In 2008, for her 50th birthday, she appeared on the cover of ELLE France.
