'NOT cool!' and ‘fashion bummer' are just two of the LOL Carine-isms heard in the trailer for the documentary Mademoiselle C, due for UK release on 20 September. Said 'C' is the ultra-stylish Carine Roitfeld, iconic former editor-in-chief of Paris Vogue and now behind the magazine and website CR Fashion Book. Karl Lagerfeld and Tom Ford say she's a legend, but why else is Carine cool?
1)As editor of Paris Vogue between 2001 and 2010, she was the reason we all picked it up at the newsagent (despite not being able to understand a word).
2) She’s the chicest grandma ever. Her daughter, the also stylish Julia Restoin Roitfeld, gave birth to her own daughter last year. While Julia was preggers, maman styled her for a lingerie fashion shoot in i-D. Naturellement.
3) She brought Lara Stone to our attention (no, David Walliams can't take the credit), featuring the curvy bombshell in shoots when skinny waifs were all the rage.
