Carine Roitfeld Reads My Blog

Carine Roitfeld claims that she neither uses a computer nor reads blogs though she seems to text with abandon. In fact, Carine stated in an interview with Alena Doletskaya of Vogue Russia: "Generally, I do not read blogs, but I am aware of what is happening. Perhaps in the future they will work for us." However, in an interview with ZEIT Online Carine specified that she has been reading my blog and it has aroused her curiosity [originally published in German with my rough English translation following]:

Sollte Roitfeld doch einmal schlechte Laune bekommen, könnte sie die Schublade öffnen und ihren I Want To Be A Roitfeld heißt die Seite, auf der viele Details über sie und ihre Familie zusammengetragen sind. Öffentlich zugängliche Fotos von ihrem Pariser Appartement stehen neben Informationen über ihren bevorzugten Tranquilizer Lexomil. "Ich würde diese Bloggerin gern mal fragen, wie sie an ihre Informationen kommt. Neulich habe ich in einem völlig unbekannten chinesischen Restaurant gegessen, und am nächsten Tag stand ein Foto der Speisekarte auf dem Blog", wundert sich Roitfeld, die Königin der Hochglanzpresse, über die guten Rechercheure aus dieser fremden neuen Onlinewelt.

If Roitfeld ever gets in a bad mood, she could open the drawer and take out her computer. On the Internet there is a site where she is revered as a heroine. I Want To Be A Roitfeld is the web site that collects the many details about her and her family. Photos of her Paris apartment are publicly available in addition to information about her favorite tranquilizer Lexomil. "I would like to ask this blogger at times how she finds her information. I recently ate at a Chinese restaurant that is completely unknown, and the next day a photo of the menu was on the blog." [The restaurant to which she refers is Au Coin des Gourmets.] Roitfeld, the queen of the glossy press, wonders about the good that will come out of this strange new online world.

[Editor's note: If you can supply a better translation of this passage or the entire article, I would be most grateful.]

The Roitfelds Air Kiss

I am enchanted with this photograph of Carine Roitfeld kissing daughter Julia in the European style as they part ways after the Burberry show. Even though Mama Carine is on the phone likely doing business, she is never too busy to say goodbye to Julia with love. Bonne maman... I had to include the one below as well because Robert Konjic looks so masterful.

Restoin-Roitfeld In Russian Tatler

Remember the gorgeous editorial that appeared this autumn with Julia Restoin-Roitfeld in Russian Tatler? I just discovered this crisp version of the photographs sans the impediment of text plus the striking one above which I had not posted previously so I had to share. Julia makes a perfect starlet and I read recently that both she and Robert Konjic take acting lessons so stay tuned. I placed the images in the gallery with the existing ones since they differ from the original editorial. Superlatif, non ?
