Carine Roitfeld: H.R.H. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Carine Roitfeld joined forces with Mario Testino to create “H.R.H. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.” for The Face and she talks about the inspiration behind this editorial: “When I see this English girl, I thought ‘She looks like Princess Anne.’ It’s a bit sad, because when we did this story, Diana was still alive; now it’s a bit trickier but at the time, we were thinking ‘Diana, Fergie — now it’s Anne’s time!’” It is actually a bit spooky, or bizarrely prescient… This “heartfelt tribute to the Princess Royal” by Roitfeld and Testino was published in July 1997, as were Testino’s portraits of Diana for Vanity Fair, widely considered the turning point of his career. Princess Diana passed away on 31 August 1997. Eery, I know. I love the stylist’s choices for the shoot, the clothing and accessories are brilliant, particularly the use of her own royal sash, vive Queen Carine.
