Stylist and editor Jackie Astier

Stylist and editor Jackie Astier brings her rock-and-roll spirit and a passion for high style to her family’s Upper East Side apartment

“Be audacious, but with taste,” advised legendary French antique dealer and decorator Madeleine Castaing. It didn’t get any bolder than her severe red lipliner, exuberant false eyelashes, and pageboy wig secured with a black chin strap—a look that has become as much a part of her legacy as the inimitable interiors she designed. That Jackie Astier, a fashion editor and stylist with a theatrical streak, fell under Castaing’s spell isn’t surprising. “I’ve had a design crush on her for forever,” says Astier, whose edgy fashion choices are well documented on Manhattan’s social circuit. “She personified individual style, which is the only kind I go for. I’ve always been obsessed with her outré colour combinations—and the way she used them.”
