"Fashion is not about clothes, it is about a look."
Tom Ford's original Gucci girl. Now THE French Vogue editor.
Carine Roitfeld defines sexy Parisian chic: sooted eyeliner, pin-straight hair, body-conscious black-dominated clothes, and sky high heels.
"When you get older, you have to stay a bit rock 'n' roll so that young people will still be interested in you. The way you move, the way you talk, maybe the way you have your hair in your face a little bit — this keeps you interesting." Carine looks tough and she is isn't afraid to speak her mind (even in an un-PC way), but she is refreshingly down-to-earth. She laughs with abandon, and is humbly self-deprecating, even voicing her confusion over why people are interested in her personal style.
She stays true to what she loves, and I love her for that.
