I Want To Be A Roitfeld In V Magazine

Whooot!! Derek Blasberg mentioned I Want To Be A Roitfeld in his "Blasberg's Best of 2009" for V Magazine, essentially noting that this is the chicest resource on the chicest family in the world. Je vous remercie mille fois, Derek, très sympa. I wanted to document this moment as well as Carine Roitfeld's stunning flexibility.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld In Kult

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld looks sultry on the cover of the fall/winter issue of Italian magazine Kult. The caption in Italian reads, "Figlia della fashion hgh society, creative director, testimonial e modella di base a New York City, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, è la nuova icona di stile. Libera, impertinente, ribelle e seducente. Julia allo specchio." In English this translates roughly as, "Daughter of fashion hgh society, creative director, spokesperson and model based in New York City, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is the new style icon. Free, cheeky, rebellious and seductive. Julia is a mirror."

Happy Birthday Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld!

According to his sister Julia, today is Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld's 25th birthday and what a prosperous year he celebrates. Vladimir translates from Russian as "one who owns the world" and in the New York art world he is hard at work on making good on his name. He sold a million dollars worth of art for Richard Hambleton this year as well as quite a few works for Nicolas Pol at a better price than previously fetched. Let's not forget the "Three Photographers" show that happened in February of this year, another artful success in Vladimir's favor. Probably the best gift of all is the relationship he formed with Giovanna Battaglia. Bon anniversaire, Vladi !

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Fix

I have been curious as to what is up with Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld between exhibits. Finally here is a little something from Fashion Week Daily: a très drôle curatorial matchup between Vlad and Vito Schnabel. On the following page they analyze Dasha Zhukova versus Masha Baibakova, seems like dealing art is the hot career choice maintenant, hmm...

Roitfeld Charms Savage Beast

Would you guess that Julia Restoin-Roitfeld once dreamed of becoming a ranger in South Africa and taking tourists on safaris? Well…it’s true! Here Julia cuddles the cutest little white lion cub proving that she can handle big game; the lion is so calm in her arms that he appears stuffed. The white lion is quite rare (only about 30 are known to be alive) and considered divine in Africa, what a perfect pairing. They are not actually albino lions but leucistic, the color results from a recessive gene called chinchilla, a color inhibitor which prevents pigment from being deposited along the shaft of the hair. The color of the lion varies from white to blond, clearly a serious disadvantage in the wild, and sometimes this rare breed even has blue eyes. If you know someone that is passionate about animals, West Midland Safari Park offers the opportunity to give the unique gift of adopting a white lion this holiday season.
