I have a deep love for kick ass women. The kind that are particularly unapologetic, take no prisoners, trail blaze and find it easy to say … no, when it doesn’t suit them. Although after careful consideration, I have decided I am drawn to these women because they don’t really care if they are liked. They just go about their business getting. shit. done.
Carine Roitfield is such a woman. Maybe it’s the whole French attitude about her that says “ I don’t care what you think about me…I don’t think about you at all” or the fact that she is a grandmother yet will not relinquish her throne in the fashion world.
In Septemeber a movie called “Mademoiselle C” is released documenting this force to be reckoned with (I am gathering it will be like “The September Issue” featuring Anna Wintour). The director Fabien Constant revealed that the who’s who of fashion will make apperances: Karl Lagerfeld and Riccardo Tisci (both of whom have ‘starring roles’), Albert Elbaz, Jean Paul Gaultier, Cate Blanchett, Diane Von Furstenberg, Mario Sorrenti, Natalia Vodianova, Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Donatella Versace, Mario Testino, Matthew Avedon, Nick Knight, Tom Ford.
