In its issue of October 3rd, 1928, the very widely read weekly "Vu" published a cover picture by Kertèsz, featuring a young lady at the wheel of a sports car. The picture caption specified that the model's sports outfit, her gloves and her leather cap, were all from Hermès. Lempicka wears exactly the same accessories in her self-portrait, which was obviously inspired by the Kertèsz photo.

The green Bugatti in the famous "Self-portrait" was, in fact, a Renault. Moreover, it was yellow, if we are to believe the recollections of her daughter. Be that as it may, Lempicka was irresistibly seductive at its wheel, so much so that she caught the eye of the woman editor of a major German fashion magazine, Die Dame. This fruitful encounter subsequently provided Lempicka with opportunities to be featured on many cocirca of the magazine, greatly contributing to the spread of her reputation. (according to Passion by Design, The Art and Times of Tamara de Lempicka, op.cit.)
