You see her sitting in the front row of every important fashion show, always looking over-the-top, always dressed impeccably. Her hair falling straight forward, she is instantly recognizable with the dark smoky eyes, the heavy eyebrows and the mysterious glance. She is the best dressed woman in the world today. Her powerful style has everyone admiring and following.
Yes, I’m talking about Carine Roitfeld…editor of French Vogue.
In every detail of her life, she has immaculate taste and she is beyond unconventional in her thinking. In the modern world, it is difficult to find stylish women who truly have a voice of their own like Carine. To her fashion is like a language. Some are born with it, some learn it and some will never be able to speak it. She has her own style and plays by her own rules. Not only do I admire her style, I also love her straight forward attitude. Her fashion advice for normal women with a restricted budget is to “buy mainly classic pieces and a new pair of shoes each season. A Burberry trench-coat is always beautiful. Maybe you change the belt and this season you put an Indian scarf. This is my specialty. Simple things to make it happen, to make it different.”
