Blast from the past: Carine Roitfeld

That story is made also under Carine direction, but this time it is much more about character, personality and portrait story. Karen playing here temperamental Italian, tomboy, sweet girl, a funny one, a dramatic woman and arrogant wench. It was a time of glory for Karen Mulder, a star model from Netherlands with very commercial appearance and very traumatic past. She was a muse for legendary Yves Saint Laurent, as well as for Helmut Newton, and often guest on covers of top-notch publications and a true super-model, but that doesn`t help. She has numerous nervous breakdowns, suicide attempts and strange past (perhaps it is just her imagination as a result of her emotional unstability, but who knows) with rapes by her father and her agent at Elite Model. Drug addictions, depressions, rehabs - all this was at the beginning of zeroes, at the moment she is not working, sometimes you can observe her as a guest at different parties and in Olivier Zahm blog and that`s it. Concerning styling - it is the one of Carine cliche and very beloved theme of her in early 90`s - sport+chic, new designers combined with streetswear. Carine always supported newcomer talents, not yet famous on a big fashion scene. So here you can see pieces by Martine Sitbon (now working for Rue du Mail), Helmut Lang and Comme des garcons as a representative of fashion undergroung and avant-garde. It is tacky here, but Carine is not affraid to make mistakes and that`s the reason why i love her, because you will never know if you won`t try...
