Carine Roitfeld is one of the leading ladies on my style icon wall of fame. Love her bold, eclectic and sometimes eccentric style; she can pull off a Tee and denim skirt and still look as fabulous as when she’s under a massive fur coat.
My biggest attraction is that very down-to-earth, vivacious personality; the polar opposite of Anna Wintour. She’s giggling, laughing, hugging, kissing people at fashion week. She’s a dedicated family woman, always seen hanging out with her son and daughter and is so energetic and full of life. And wow, does she live and breathe that effortless Parisian chic or what? She personifies the i-just-dropped-out-of-bed-looking-fabulous.
She’s literally synonymous with French Vogue, think French Vogue and Parisian Chic, think Carine Roitfeld.
So I definitely share the shock of the fashion world to hear that she’s resigned from French Vogue (after 10 years) to concentrate on personal projects. All hope is not lost though, i know the fashion world hasn’t heard the last of Carine. And of course the speculation is on about her replacement, as if it’s not already been decided, i think it just might be her right hand chic and loyal fashion director, Emmanuelle Alt.
I had always wanted to do a blog post on Carine Roitfeld as my Style icon, so i guess here goes. Check out the stunning style of the outgoing French Vogue editor.
French Vogue will miss Carine sorely but we, we’ll be on the look out for her because we know she’ll be around.
