Carine Roitfeld To Attend Paris Couture Shows As Fake Client For W

The jury’s still out on whether or not Carine Roitfeld will become Kanye‘s tour manager or an Avon lady or whatever, but for the time being she’s going incognito for W Magazine.

Carine told Women’s Wear Daily that she’s going to the couture shows in Paris next month…as a fake client. Paolo Roversi is reportedly shooting the former editrix as she impersonates a fancypants couture client “from the front row through to fittings”. Fashion shows aren’t the most original settings for magazine editorials, but this gimmick is intriguing. Carine sitting front row as just some lady (a rich lady getting photographed by W, but still just some lady) instead of as a member of the press? It’s kind of interesting!

Of course, what we’re really wondering is this: what ever will she wear?
