Carine Roitfeld Gave Tom Ford A Back Massage With Her Heels

Carine Roitfeld is reportedly banished from all things related to Condé Nast, but it doesn’t mean that Hearst-owned Harper’s Bazaar can’t profile her. In the mag’s September issue, the former French Vogue editor gets a nice little profile about her busy lifestyle. She’s launching a MAC collaboration, rolling out CR Book, and playing the role of the most fashionable grandmother to her daughter’s nearly four-month-old daughter Romy. But Roitfeld still finds time to hang out with her friends.

Just after Roitfeld left Vogue Paris, she had questions about her future in fashion:

“Some people were supportive. But you think, Maybe I never get invited for the next show; maybe I won’t be front row. Of course you’re disappointed by some people, but you discover other people too.”

Of course, longtime friends like Karl Lagerfeld, Tom Ford, and Riccardo Tisci stood by her side, and continued to work with her. Ford tells Harper’s Bazaar:

“Carine is a perfectionist. We are both Virgos and obsessed with details. I am always inspired by Carine.”

Who knew he was so into astrology? Anyway, he’s not the only one doling out glowing compliments. Carine recalls:

“Tom is crazy. I remember once, his back hurt and he asked me to walk on him with my high heels on.”

Sounds … painful. Wonder if we’ll get the same treatment from Roitfeld if we asked?
