Mademoiselle C

I remember when The September Issue came out highlighting the life and career of EIC Anna Wintour. I was mesmerized by the film so much in fact that I wrote an entire final paper on it in college in which I watched the film 20+ times, analyzed every minuscule detail, and became fixated on the scene in which Anna recalls how unsupported she felt in her career endeavors by her family. The life of fashion editor is fascinating to me and that is why I am so excited to share with you all this trailer for “Mademoiselle C” focusing on former editor Carine Roitfeld.

A Collection Part 30

A Softer World

Happy spring readers! We’re long overdue for a Collection post so I thought I would leave you with one before I embark on the rest of my spring break venturing for the week. It’s definitely shorter than usual, but still packed with pretty pictures. I wanted to kick off this collection post with a comic from one of my favorite sites, A Softer World. Together, they are the perfect combination of beautiful photography and witty thoughts.

Enjoy!

Carine Roitfeld leaving French Vogue

In a few weeks, Carine Roitfeld will be resigning from her position as editor-in-chief of French Vogue to pursue personal projects. She has been the editor of the magazine for the past ten years and is responsible for transforming French Vogue into the strong and influential magazine that it is today.

“It’s 10 years that I’m editor of the magazine, I think it’s time to do something different,” Roitfeld told Cathy Horyn at the New York Times. “When everything is good, maybe I think it’s the time to do something else.”

Before becoming the editor-in-chief, Carine started out in the fashion industry as a model and then a stylist. There were rumors that she would also eventually take over the position of editor-in-chief of American Vogue replacing Anna Wintour, but it turns out she never had any plans to do so at all. Her replacement will be announced in a few weeks.
