Making me swoon over the weekend is this new trinket courtesy of Carine Roitfeld‘s bag of tracks where the former French Vogue editor discusses in her new documentary, ‘Mademoiselle C’her,’ heady rise in the fashion world and her conceptualization of what makes it all go round.
Perhaps a clever way to get back at her detractors, and there have been many lately since her exit from Vogue as Carine Roitfeld gets back on track with her new projects, the documentary reminds us as glamorous as the fashion world is it’s a pretty insular one where back stabbing is rampant.
Reflects the matriarch: ”When you leave Vogue Paris, you leave your crown.”
Tells the promo: Carine Roitfeld ran French Vogue for 10 years, building a reputation as one of fashion’s most influential movers. Her inner circle of friends includes Donatella Versace, Tom Ford, Karl Lagerfeld, Mario Testino, Riccardo Tisci, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Alexander Wang. Yet few people outside the fashion world have heard of her…until now.
Mademoiselle C chronicles Carine’s launch of her new magazine “CR Fashion Book.” It gives a rare inside glimpse at the inner workings not only of Roitfeld’s professional world but also her personal life. It is a film about transition, letting the audience watch as Carine moves to New York, starts a new business, and prepares to become a grandmother. And of course, its filled the the models, celebrities, and eccentric personalities that make the fashion world so entertaining.
The good shit arrives in cinemas this September 11.
