Carine Roitfeld - the living legend.

Who could of done  more for the fashion industry rather than Carine Roitfeld? The living legend and the mother of two left a huge contribution into the french lifestyle. The long and successful career began with modelling ( as banal as it sounds) smoothly moving to the French Elle where she worked as a freelance stylist: "I was not the best stylist when I worked for fifteen years for French Elle, but certainly when I met Mario Testino something happened. The right person for me at the right time [...]." Soon after the famous metting, Roitfeld and Testino started working together as a team for the both American and French Vogue. Later on she went on working as a muse and consultant for Tom Ford at Gucci for 6 years. It led to a great friendship and co-operation in a very creative, sometimes scandalous and provocative French Vogue editorials (Cadeaux – little girls dressed up as elder women, Forever Love etc).
After ten years of working as a editor-in-chief of today’s the most powerful Vogue Paris following the retirement decision, Carine finally writes a book. Featuring a selection of 250 magazine tear sheets and covers from pivotal editorial shoots and advertising campaigns, as well as intimate visual ephemera, this book gives an inside view into Roitfeld's creative thought process and sensibility. A must-have for those interested in cutting-edge fashion and femininity, this book will empower women to follow Roitfeld's lead and take risks with their personal style.
