CARINE FOR W MAGAZINE
Finally the editorial we’ve all been waiting for. Paolo Roversi shot the pictures for the Carine editorial in W Magazine. Great choice in my humble opinion. Carine looks amazing (those extensions!) and the styling is beautifull.

IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR
Yes it is true! Carine Roitfeld models (Rick Owens) with her whole family for Barneys’ Fall campaign. I simply adore this picture with her son Vladimir, taken by Mario Sorrenti. More photos of the campaign here or coming to you in all important (American) September issues!!
And we’re really in for a treat. For the “Carine’s World”-themed fall women’s campaign features, the  former editor-in-chief of French Vogue recruited her daughter Julia  Restoin-Roitfeld in Givenchy, son Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld in his own  clothes, Marie Amelie Sauve in Balenciaga, Victoire de Castellane in  Azzedine Alaïa, Dasha Zhukova in Proenza Schouler, and Naomi Campbell in  Fendi.

MONSTERS A LA MODE
Browsing my favourite blogs, I stumbled upon these fun images at I want to be a Roitfeld. They are postcards created by Darcel Dissapoints with Colette and Nowness for Fashion’s Night Out in New York, to celebrate the fashion week insanity . Unfortunately they are sold out, but hopefully Darcel will create another edition. My fave is Suzy Menkes. So cute!

SIMPLY CARINE
German magazine Der Spiegel published a great interview with Carine Roitfeld. Some memorable quotes:
‘Today’s fashions don’t let people dream as much as they  used to. Twenty years ago, fashion was a promise — something that was  part of your life and perhaps enriched it, something that reflected a  particular era. If you look at advertisements these days, all you see  are handbags. They aren’t about dreams anymore; customers are buying  objects now, not dreams.’
On copying
‘Fashion stopped being a matter  of money a long time ago; it’s a matter of taste. These days, even  women with less money can dress well. I was always saddened by the idea  that elegance was only something for a minority. It’s about style. Karl  was the first one to understand that. It was very smart of him to design  this H&M collection, and very smart of Chanel to allow him to do  so.’

On the rise of the rich customers from Russia and China:
'This obsession with particular designers  is somewhat strange. I think it's the safest way for these customers to  find their feet when they first discover the world of fashion. You can't  learn how to be elegant; you can only learn how to avoid mistakes. The  rest is instinct. Elegance is about the way you cross your legs, not the  label or the newest clothes from the latest collection.'
On her own fashion principles:
‘I don’t change my handbag every season. I believe in  the Yves Saint Laurent woman who either has her hands in the pockets of  her pantsuit or is holding her lover’s hand. She doesn’t need a bag.’
On heels:
They give you power. You move differently, sit differently and even speak differently.
On flat-soled shoes: 
'I wear flat-soled  shoes on vacation, but I also travel in high heels, which is why I'm  regularly stopped by customs officials at the airport. Wearing high  heels in an airplane is suspicious. Nobody else does that.'

FETE!
French Vogue threw a party (if you have been living under a stone, the mag turned 90 this month!) and boy did we wish we were there! Gorgeous people in beautiful (and very sheer, maybe too much??) dresses. Anna dello Russo stole the show in her Gareth Pugh mask and Pucci dress and thanks to Fashionologie.com you can see all the guests and their interpretation of what to wear to a Bal Masque.
For gossip and behind the scenes read the New York Times , NY Mag, Style.com or The Daily Mail.

CARINE
NYT’s Eric Wilson sat down with Carine Roitfeld for a Q&A. Read it here, but my fave quote has got to be:
What would be your song?
“You’re So Vain.” I think in this business, it’s a good song. It’s  dedicated to a lot of people.
