Blast from the past: Carine Roitfeld

hi, guys! i was away for a while and there was so much thing going on. I was working hard and started collecting a new era of magazines for me - 70`s-80`s and finally started a serious collection of Helmut Newton whom i was inside since my childhood and whom actually modeled my view on women, aesthetic and sexuality in some way (his Wolford campaigns in 96-98 was the ones i admire back then, when i was in my pre-teen age). Now i am back and i just hope that i can share with you my thought, opinions, precious materials and exclusives more often, since i always have something to say, and my collection grown much much bigger.
Today i am gonna tell you about vintage Carine Roitfeld stuff. She is very infamous at the moment: that new Bazaar position, her magazine etc (however lately she dissapeared from the scen and last 2-3 months weren]t as fruitful as the whole passed year, but i guess it is just a lull before the storm), but back then, in 1994 she was just a regular stylist at French Conde Nast`s Vogue & Glamour. Her styling is always very determinated, recognizable, cutting edge and still very modern, even now, almost 20 years after. I guess, that`s because she didn`t follow the norms of good-taste, she just followed he instinct, that§s why she ussually combined white pumps with black outfit, put together accessories from whole different stories or just mix classic stuff with a super trendy fast -fashion elements, yes , sometimes it provokes the thing called in french "le mavais gout", but as maestro Helmut Newton said in his autobiography: "I am very attracted by bad taste - it is a lot more exciting than that supposed good taste which is nothing more than a standardized way of looking at things." Carine is not standardized, and she was always into something very particular and personal, and i guess that`s the reason of her success, not fast, but i guess, slow stars are true stars...
Below you `ll see a quite rare and fameless story, however, you `ll see Yasmeen Ghauri, a very on -demand model of 90`s with super feminine shapes whom stars in Organza of Givenchy, Male model is looking exactly as a young Duran-Duran`s keyboardist Nick Rhodes. The story is supposed to getting us back in 40`s, it is a new view on retro in 90s. So, get ready

    That story is made also under Carine direction, but this time it is much more about character, personality and portrait story. Karen playing here…
