Fergie has learned to "elevate" her style with the help of Carine Roitfeld. The singer is back in the spotlight with her second album Double Dutchess, released 11 years after her debut The Dutchess, and has returned with a new image too. She tapped a whole host of fashion experts to help her dive into a new wardrobe, including Carine, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris and founder of glossy, CR Fashion Book.
"She's a legend - she knows what she wants, she's very detail-orientated, which I love - and very chic," Fergie told WWD. "For me, I like to learn from people like her, to elevate my style.

"Like I learned from her with hosiery, it was very important to have the line straight up the back of the leg. So now anytime with the hosiery, the line must be meticulously straight! Even how to say 'oui' - like a chic Parisian girl."
Giovanni Bianco, a creative director who has helmed campaigns for the likes of Versace and Miu Miu as well as working with musicians such as Madonna, is another person Fergie tapped for her comeback. The London Bridge singer worked with the Italian on her music video for You Already Know, featuring Nicki Minaj.

"Giovanni really helped me get back in touch with my tomboy side, my hard side, because I had (son) Axl... had done the music and I was fine in the studio, but he was like, 'You know what, you have this thing inside of you - you have kitten, and that is very natural, but you also have the boyish side,'" she smiled. "And for Double Dutchess, because having a son (I was) very motherly, but it was about pulling that tough side of me back out."
