Marie Claire (South Africa) - - Life Story -

Éve­lyne Prou­vost-Berry, who passed away af­ter a fall from her bi­cy­cle on 19 July 2017, was part of the French bour­geoisie. Mar­ried at 19, she di­vorced a few years later, forc­ing her grand­fa­ther to ac­cept her sep­a­ra­tion from the man who he hoped would be­come the head of his pub­lish­ing group af­ter him. At 34 years old, she launched French Cos­mopoli­tan. When her grand­fa­ther sold the Marie Claire Group to an­other big pub­lisher, she part­nered with her sis­ters to buy it back.
