Julia Restoin-Roitfeld Reads My Blog

Two of my loyal readers

I can finally die happily — Julia Restoin-Roitfeld confessed to The Telegraph that she reads I Want To Be A Roitfeld and considers it amazing and well made! Also funny, strange, and scary but I have been called worse... Julia, just so you know, Angelina Jolie bores me silly...

She's often photographed with [Robert] Konjic, but the most exhaustive catalogue of her life, and the lives of her mother and brother, can be found at the I Want To Be A Roitfeld website, an extraordinary labour of love, or perhaps obsession.

If you're after an itemised list of every cosmetic in her bathroom cabinet, for example, or a recipe for her favourite snack, you'll find them here. Roitfeld admits to browsing it.

'Of course, I'm curious! And it's quite amazing because it's really well made. But it's scary to see someone devote so much time. I mean, it's flattering but we're not celebrities like Angelina Jolie or anything. It's funny and strange.'

"..to see someone devote so much time" - if she only knew! Of course it's a labor of love devoted to her and her family. Why wouldn't she read it?

The admission that Julia reads your blog beats any award you win for it, non? Of course the blog is well made, it follows the Roitfelds, and they are not exactly known for being tacky now are they?! Your sites oozes class and elegance, very befitting of a Roitfeld ;)

Well done, Kellina ! The Nas family is proud of you. Yet, we do not want to be RoitfeldS yet !

I TOTALLY CALLED THIS MONTHS AGO!! I knew they read this. I KNEW IT!! Brava, Kellina...there are much worse things to be called than "funny & strange." In fact, most people I know would say I'm funny and strange. I'm SO happy for you, darling. Well deserved and well done!

Congratulations, Kellina!

I think being funny and strange are the highest of complements!! You must be pinching yourself! Your blog wouldn't be on the radar with JK if it wasn't exceedingly well made. Bravo and such well deserved feedback!! We need to start a campaign for her to comment next.

Thanks a million, Kate! Your words mean the world to me!
10 mars 2011 | Registered Commenterkellina
Ha ha, Michael! You know better than anyone! Yes, it is laborious at times but it is always with love. No, I meant the site, honey, not us.

So kind of you to say, Nadia, thank you! Yes, Julia confirming that she actually reads along is the best possible reward.
10 mars 2011 | Registered Commenterkellina
Molto grazie, Gala! Sei una tesora!
10 mars 2011 | Registered Commenterkellina
Madame N., I am thrilled to hear that I have made the Nas family proud! Merci mille fois ! Now I must work harder to convince you that being a Roitfeld is the ultimate...

10 mars 2011 | Registered Commenterkellina
You sure did, TBF! Thank you SO much! Hope you enjoyed your evening with LITA. xoxo

Montse, many thanks! Your sweet words always make me smile.
10 mars 2011 | Registered Commenterkellina
Thanks a bunch, Renee!
10 mars 2011 | Registered Commenterkellina
Noelani, thank you very much! I believe Julia has commented in the past, though she had publicly denied it previously.

10 mars 2011 | Registered Commenterkellina
Kellina! Kellina! It's a fantastic recognition!!! I am so happy for you;)

Vous êtes très sympa, Madame M, merci mille fois !
10 mars 2011 | Registered Commenterkellina
the nerve :P :

and congrats kellina! very exciting!
10 mars 2011 | Unregistered Commenternatalie
Ha ha! I saw that Natalie ! The Fug Girls have only shined their light on the Roitfelds three times that I know of and I tend to agree — three of the weakest moments in their otherwise flawless fashion history.

; )

Thanks for your well wishes, much appreciated!

Hi Kellina,
I am happy for you! But I have to say that I am totally NOT surprised to learn what Julia thinks about your blog.
I mean... it is THAT good!
Congrats' once again, you do an amazing job (I wish I had the time and patience to do the same on mine, but hopefully I'll be back soon!).
Thumbs up!
Take care, talk to you soon!
12 mars 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJudith
Thanks a bunch, Judith! I am always happy to hear from you.

Please, tell me that you already know about Julia's interview at Into the Gloss, she discusses her whole beauty routine and shares pictures of all her make up and products!!!

16 mars 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDiana Delgado
Yes, Diana, I saw that interview the day it posted, it is wonderful. Thank you for letting me know!

La Roitfeld looks like one of her self styled editorial
