This Mega Stylist Calls Fashion Week Street Style ‘Ridiculous’
We’ve always been fans of Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele’s work for Vogue and V, among others, but our admiration turned into an obsession when we saw her in the HBO documentary In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye. Naturally, her words carry a lof of weight to us.
The stylist, who we have to thank for that iconic Vogue cover, chatted with Fashionista about her love for Uggs (“I don’t care! I love these things.”), the key to success in the industry (“You need to be BORN with all this. It’s nothing you can LEARN.”), and of course, the hot topic of street style photography outside of fashion shows:
“Ridiculous. Because I remember, you know, Bill Cunningham, who was the first one, you never knew he was taking pictures of you. He was around you, but you never see him. But now it’s ridiculous. It’s all these people and they ask you to stop and pose. I mean, it should not be like this. The street–me, I love the real street, and this is not what I call the real street. They all dress to be photographed and I don’t think this is real….It’s fake! Like a lot of things today.”
If you fall on the other side of that particular debate and you absolutely looove street style, well, here’s a video from Paris Fashion Week:
