Carine Roitfeld is after gold. In a good way.
Chanel’s cruise collection touched down today at a former nutmeg plantation in Singapore. It was a far cry from the over-the-top productions of seasons past — like, for instance, that time the house dropped a colossal globe in the center of the Grand Palais, or that time they staged a show in a castle — but the collection itself was quintessentially Karl. And clearly others were banking on that, too, since guests like Dakota Fanning barely had time to scrub off their Met Gala makeup before hopping off the 18-hour flight to get there in time.
Spring had most definitely sprung this weekend, and the fashion crowd dressed for the season at Dolce & Gabbana‘s Fifth Avenue flagship soirée. These six women in particular looked right on point.
Carine Roitfeld‘s irreverence is the stuff of legend — not to mention the inspiration for the title of her 2011 coffee book. Her latest tongue-in-cheek endeavor is a Bruce Weber-lensed spread in the second issue of CR Fashion Book starring none other than Big Ang, the brassy, big-chested, Staten Island-dwelling star of VH1‘s Mob Wives. Why Big Ang? Well, for the women’s issue of Ad Week, the former French Vogue editor explains the thinking behind the unexpected casting choice.
We all know the ins and outs of wardrobe staples — a plain white tee, dark denim, and a timeless LBD come to mind — but the same goes for beauty. We wanted to find out the must-have products that our favorite fashion insiders never leave home without: the go-to goodies that instantly put a pep in our most stylish friends’ steps. This week, Carine Roitfeld reveals her one beauty “product” that you won’t be able to buy in stores.
Not long after the news broke that Carine Roitfeld would be launching her own magazine, CR Fashion Book, reports leaked from Condé Nast‘s HQ indicating that the publishing giant (and Roitfeld’s ex-employer) was issuing stern warnings to its contracted photographers and editors reminding them not to get involved with the new tome. While this meant that the former French Vogue editrix was barred from working with many of her favorites, including longtime collaborator Mario Testino, it also opened up a window of opportunity.
Prince-of-darkness designer Rick Owens wouldn’t be our first thought to shoot a spread for the dance-themed newest issue of CR Fashion Book, but editor Carine Roitfield knows what she’s doing. We’ve got an exclusive look at Owens’ first ever editorial.
These days, Carine Roitfeld is busy juggling CR Book and Harper’s Bazaar, but the editrix wasn’t going to let that stop her from enjoying this afternoon’s Diesel Black Gold show. Of course, sitting alongside besties Stephen Gan and Nicola Formichetti definitely made it more fun.
Carine Roitfeld‘s first editorial for Harper’s Bazaar is here! And surprise — there is nary a nipple in sight!
It was a very international affair last night at FIAF in New York City, where Parisian-turned-New Yorker Carine Roitfeld sat down for an interview with the very German Klaus Biesenbach, the Chief Curator at Large for the MoMA and Director of MoMA PS1 as part of the institute’s “Creative Leaders” talks. But despite the number of heavy accents on stage, the crowd was rapt as they listened to the editor speak about her illustrious career, party girl past, adjustments to American culture, and, of course, new roles as editor in chief of brand new title CR Fashion Book and as global fashion director at Harper’s Bazaar.
Like anyone who would prefer not to spend four days without heat, power, internet, or cell phone service, many fashionable folk from the blackout zone of sub-39th street Manhattan have fled uptown in the wake of Hurricane Sandy to seek shelter in warmer, brighter pastures. Page Six has the lowdown on which glamorous digs various designers, editors, and stars have chosen to while away the week while the rest of us rely on our generous friends with uptown addresses and a spare couch or two.
Carine Roitfeld has just been named the new global fashion director at Harper’s Bazaar, a Hearst publication.
Carine Roitfeld really knows how to throw a parrr-tay. Last night, the CR Fashion Book editor-in-chief fêted her MAC collaboration with a very fancy fête in Paris, and of course, everyone was dressed to the nines.
We’d heard rumors, but it’s all true: Carine Roitfeld did indeed honor Kate Upton with the inauguarl cover of her new magazine, CR. Organized around the theme of rebirth, CR was unveiled in its entirety today — and here’s what you need to know.
The release of Carine Roitfeld‘s new magazine CR Fashion Book is mere days away, but impatient as we are, we just had to get another look inside the glossy. Luckily today marks the launch of the official website, so now we have more than just a few GIFs, JPEGs, and videos to form an idea of the accompanying book.
