Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld At Home

The description was published originally in Portuguese so I am not entirely certain, but I believe that this photograph of Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld was taken in his Upper East Side apartment. It says that his luxurious home reflects his passion for the arts, congregating incredible pieces displayed in uncommon locations that turn up in temporary galleries. A few of the highlights include paintings by Nicolas Pol and Richard Hambleton — two artists Vladimir has curated — as well as the work of one of his favorite photographers, Raphael Mazzucco. I'd love to know who created the art in the background above, the eyes are haunting me. Vladimir has lived independently since he was 17 and apparently has firm tastes: he allows neither girlfriend Giovanna Battaglia nor his mother to style his space, the décor is his alone. For added panache, the building was formerly occupied by Al Pacino.

[Editor's note: Thank you to b for confirming that the photograph seen in the background above is by Raphael Mazzucco. Thanks also to Vernard for pointing out that there are actually two works of art behind Vladimir, a photograph on the left and a painting on the right; both are by Mazzucco and can be seen in his Collected Works.]

La Roitfeld Top

Here is the perfect way to pay respect to everyone's favorite editor: La Roitfeld Top. This sweet find is a black crew neck tshirt with sheer sleeves; on the front Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld's silhouette is screenprinted in French words in white making it quite possibly the coolest tshirt ever.

Carine Roitfeld In Australian Grazia

The most recent issue of the Australian edition of Grazia features two short pieces with Carine Roitfeld which my friend Barbara Polyanskaya kindly spotted and scanned for all of us to enjoy. Merci mille fois, Barbara! In one spread titled "Women of Style & Substance," we see Carine in a variety of outfits with buying information for a few choice pieces that fit "the ultimate fashion equation: pencil skirt + hot shoe = smokin'." The other article, "The New It List," compares and contrasts the lacy underthings of La Roitfeld, La Madonna, and La Gaga as they embrace the pantlessness, formidable!

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld In The Selby Book

Remember last spring when Julia Restoin-Roitfeld graciously opened up her home to photographer Todd Selby and gave all of us a lovely glimpse of her life? We got to see the beauty products that Julia prefers, the unique jewelry that she collects such as the gorgeous pieces by Tom Binns, Alexis Bittar, Pamela Love, and Czarina, her mindblowing shoe closet, including sexy stunners designed by Brian Atwood, her toys, even her well tended orchids. Now we can see all of this and more in hardcover format: The Selby Is in Your Place collects the cool portraits Todd Selby has amassed into one dynamic book due to publish the first of May. I cannot wait to own a copy. As an added bonus, some of the portraits have never been seen before! Now if only there were photographs of Vladimir's apartment to complete the collection...

p.s. If you visit The Selby regularly you may enjoy the Question & Answer section at the bottom of each profile complete with illustrations by the subjects. For some reason, Julia's Q&A was not posted originally but it is now and of course it is très adorable including a priceless sketch of Brigitte Bardot.
