Advent Season: Day Five

The real Vogue Queen Carine Roitfeld had a little chinwaggle about last Fall's shows..

with subtitles for us uncultured non-frenchies.

"I usually don't like Handbags"
Who'd have thought?

haha. love her!

Dulcie said...

I adore this woman, and the way she runs Paris Vogue around style, and not trends (Ms Shulman...please take note)
Also she is very funny and despite her iconic status seems like the type of woman who one could have have a giggle with whilst waiting in line for something (although I highly doubt Carine ever has to stand in line for anything)
She is my dream boss.

yeahh Dulcie! Nice to hear from you.
Ii completely agree, I think she'd make a rather good candidate to get pissed up with at an after party, non?
And I half disagree/half applaud her disinterest in handbags. Refreshing.

haha fab! i adore her and her daughter, julia. i wish she would come over here and kick anna out - american vogue is such a disgrace these days...xo

This video is really interesting. I am quite confused about the fact that she does not like handbags, how can she even dare to say that!!
I haven't heard her talking before, and I think I like her more now. Great post.

"I have my ways", follow by a devious little smile, ah Carine, how I love you..

Bojana said...

Oooh she seems so nice and down to earth! I'd never imagined her like that.

Haha the french accent..."ookeeeuurrr" (hooker). God damn even a famous fashion editor can't seem to pronunce english correctly hah

Kat said...

Oh wow she's quite fabulous and lovely at the same time. Although i am rather partial to my handbags, as you said DC it is refreshing what she says compared with all this 'it' bag nonsense today.
The french accent never fails to hypnotise me!

editor said...

i knew about her attitude re. bags - the most you will ever see her with is a clutch. her fetish is footwear.
i LOVE the bags that i have, but i have no lust in my heart for "it" bags, so i partially understand her.

editor said...

oh, and also, thanks so much for the subtitled version - i had seen this video before but could not understand a word of it. a treat to know what she was saying!

Teresa said...

God I love Carine. Such a departure to Anna, goodness...

Candid Cool said...

i love the "i have my ways"

she's wonderful. i saw in a documentary video, ricardo tischi calls her one of the few nicest people in fashion. and he talks her into wearing a yellow dress and she says "yellow? i dont know. i usually dont wear yellow."
