Who is Carine Roitfeld?
Most well known as Editor-in-Chief Vogue Paris from 2001 to 2011.
Her career began though as a model and went onto become a writer and stylist for
French Elle magazine.
She also worked as a stylist and muse for the likes of Gucci during Tom Ford's tenure,
probably in my opinion the best Gucci work ever!
Today Carine is the editor of CR Fashion Book, on online fashion bible that will come out twice a year and live online along with the taking on the position of Global Fashion Director of Harper's Bazaar.
She is admired by both her personal style and her slight erotic nature of her fashion spreads,
she has the ability to seamlessly merge editing, styling, consulting and scouting for talent.

Her most recent endeavour is the release of her book Carine Roitfeld : Irreverent, a beautiful collection of the works that chronicle Carine's work since the early 1990's along with personal photo's and notes from the likes of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano. If you are a lover of fashion, this book is a must in your collection.
