“I never aspired to wear big labels the way young people might today,” Carine Roitfeld told V Magazine. “I thought high fashion and fashion magazines were for old ladies and not me.”
While her outlook on the fashion world was drastically different, a teenage Roitfeld still sported all the features that make us envy the 58-year-old to this day. It’s no wonder she was snapped up by a photographer on the streets of Paris.
As part of an editorial V‘s August issue, the CR Fashion Book editor looked to her model past to both style and creative direct a shoot inspired by her own days of getting behind the lens, and shared her vintage modeling card from the ’70s in the process.
While the images convey a more innocent Roitfeld then we’re used to seeing, her prominent brows and smoldering bedroom eyes stood the test of time.
