Was Carine’s MAC Line Inspired By Lanvin’s ‘Real People’ Ads?


Carine Roitfeld speaks! Again. This time about her M.A.C. collaboration, due in stores September 6.

We saw pictures of the collection yesterday, which is predictably heavy on the neutrals, reds, and blacks. Today brings us a behind-the-scenes video from her campaign shoot. In the clip, the editrix talks about her smoky eye technique (“inside, outside, a bit with my fingers”), her views on morning-after makeup (“your eyes can be tired, but sexy tired”), and her newest signature: the little stars she stencils on the outer corners of her eyes (“I call it for good luck. It’s my new beauty mark.”).

It’s also someone’s old beauty mark, insofar as an 18-year-old can have such things. Rachel Trachtenburg is one of the stars of Lanvin‘s fall 2012 “real people” campaign, and she’s sporting the stellar stencils front-and-center in the ads. And lest you think she’s the one copping Roitfeld’s style, here’s a StyleLikeU vid from two years ago, which shows the teenager rocking the very same look.

Now, we’re not saying Trachtenburg was the first person to ever adopt the style — we’re certain the Sixties were chock full of starry-eyed girls. But maybe, just maybe, Roitfeld took a little inspiration for her new “signature of the moment” from the Lanvin campaign this season?
