CATE UNDERWOOD

The trilogy of “Eaux de l’Âme” invites an artist to associate his spirit, his creative breath (the one that animates his passions),
to the universe of Liquides Imaginaires
that incarnates him in perfume.
 For the first opus, Beauté du Diable, Philippe Di Méo 
feat Cate Underwood, model, muse, photographer and dj.

The eclectic and closest definition of a multitalented artist, Cate Underwood divides her life between the activity of photographer and model, she is also a blogger an It-girl and, last but not least, a young mother. Endowed with a strong and dynamic personality, which is most likely quite necessary to accomplish – alone – what would normally require a whole team of people!, Cate is incredibly active and constantly working or researching. “There’s constantly a need for more, more beautiful locations, more inspiration. I can’t simply stop in one city at this www in my life, I’d rather be everywhere”. Born in Kiev, living in London and currently off to New York, Cate established herself in fashion industry after winning Bazaar Fashion Forward Award for photography in 2010.

Cate has been discovered with a series of self-portrait Polaroids taken off-the-cuff and depicting moments of everyday life. At the age of 20, after already 3 years working in photography and after the birth of her daughter Eva, Cate signed a modeling contract in Paris, a move that seemed to pay tribute to the chosen career of the mother (also a model) whom Cate indicates as her most important reference and role model in life. “When I was a child, my mum used to take lots of pictures of me, I was a 4 year old little girl posing as a top model from 90’s”.
