Oh Carine

Confession: As much as i adore fashion, i'm not particularly into the really haute couture/ridiculous-names-i-can't-pronounce world. I don't know all the designers, the fashion houses, the editors, the photographers, the models... i'm much more into street style because duh, that's all i can afford. That being said, one of the fun parts of reading fashion/style blogs is that you get to learn all kinds of things about the fashion world and the people in it. One name i've seen over and over again is Carine Roitfeld - the Editor-in-Chief at Vogue Paris. And wow, i noticed, people are OBSESSED with her. They absolutely adore/worship her. Out of curiosity, i decided to do a little investigating and stumbled across her recently aired CNN interview/documentary...


Now i COMPLETELY understand. She's the quintessential chic French woman that all American girls secretly want to be. And on top of that? She seems genuinely genuine. Down-to-earth, maternal, all the things that you know a certain other E.I.C. is not. Anyway, i've got to run but if you haven't already, you must check out the CNN special which can be seen here. Enjoy and bonsoir!

carine is a goddess. there were rumors circulating for awhile that she might take over US vogue...which would be awesome.
