In 2007, Doré began to feature photography of people around Paris on her blog, a format now known as “streetstyle”. Since this time, she has worked with Chloé, Chopard, David Yurman, Tiffany & Co., and J. Crew on photography collaborations.[1] She was named in a New York Times article as the "guardian of all style".[2]

In 2009, Doré began creating video content for her blog. Within a few months she was collaborating on video content with major brands, such as Dior, Chopard, Tiffany & Co., Petit Bateau, J. Crew, Max Mara and Kering,[1] and, in 2012, had developed her own YouTube series "Pardon My French".[3] Previous “Pardon My French” episodes have focused on Fashion Week and interviews with Stella McCartney,[4] Jenna Lyons,[5] Dries van Noten[6] and Anna Dello Russo.[7] In 2012, Doré and boyfriend Scott Schuman won the Council of Fashion Designers of America Media Award.

In 2014 Doré and long time boyfriend Scott Schuman, of The Sartorialist,[9] announced the end of their relationship.[10]

She currently resides in New York City.
