Behold the library of Carine Roitfeld or what we can see of it anyway. Of course she has the requisite issues of Vogue Paris much like we saw in her daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld's library although hers are stacked on the coffee table rather than the floor. What is more surprising is that most of the books on Carine's shelves appear to be in English and focus on photography and art with a dash of fashion, again mirroring Julia's collection. I regret that I cannot decipher more of the titles but the type is simply too small.

Aside: why has Todd Selby not yet photographed Carine's elegant home for us? He did such an amazing job when he shot Julia's apartment, more than 60 gorgeous photos of minimal splendor. Let's see his perspective of Carine... The photograph shown here comes from a beautiful book titled New Paris Interiors which showcases the apartment of Carine and partner Christian Roitfeld as well as the homes of many other tasteful and influential Parisians.
