Wardrobe Watch: Carine Roitfeld
If French style is about effortless luxury and ageing gracefully, Carine Roitfeld epitomizes everything that is Parisian chic. Her name is as iconic as her refined wardrobe of impossibly polished ensembles, but Carine Roitfeld doesn't consider herself a style icon. Roitfeld, the global fashion director of Harper's Bazaar and former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief, told The Guardian "I don't think I am. I have a style, and it's mostly a fitted skirt, a fitted jacket, heels and tights. It's what suits me the best." Modesty aside, Roitfield’s sharp stylistic eye was instrumental in producing game-changing covers for French Vogue, re-energising Gucci, YSL and Missoni, curating a book, Irreverent (Rizzoli) and her own publication CR Fashion Book. Mademoiselle C, the documentary tracking Carine Roitfeld during the creation of CR Fashion Book is set to premiere this September.
Over her colourful career in fashion, Roitfeld's signature refined, chic aesthetic has reigned supreme — and we've curated her very best looks inside the gallery. Enter for a lesson in French dressing.
