Julia Restoin-Roitfeld In London's West End

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld was seen in London's West End yesterday looking a bit more dramatic than usual. Is it the Louis Vuitton scarf she is wearing? She declared to reporters that she is on a hunt for vintage, "Mairead Lewin tomorrow and Portobello Market on Friday." Julia's boots are also by Louis Vuitton, her bag is by Marc Jacobs, and her skirt is by Balenciaga.

Roitfeld At GQ Man Of The Year Awards

Carine Roitfeld was on hand yesterday in Munich, Germany when Tom Ford was awarded the Man of the Year by GQ in the category "Fashion". She is wearing a skirt designed by Ford for Yves Saint Laurent and her favorite Alaïa laceups. Other GQ Men of the Year include Jon Kortajarena for "Model," Gerard Butler for "International Film," Jonas Kaufmann for "Classical Music," Jan Delay for "Style" (pictured below), and Sir Bob Geldof for "Lifetime Charity."

Giovanna Battaglia In Costume

Giovanna Battaglia dressed as a drum majorette for Halloween this year along with her sister Sara (the designer of the distinctive handbag that Gio carries in a variety of colors). In the photograph above, Giovanna is the one beside Domenico Dolce; the other majorette in red is Giovanna's sister. The costumes are adorable and the jackets are certainly in keeping with the Balmania of the season... But where is Vladimir and what is his costume?

Restoin-Roitfelds In Pop Magazine

I love this portrait of Julia and Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld shot by Tom Sachs on June 16, 2009 using Polaroid technology for Pop Magazine, Issue 21. I haven't seen it posted anywhere else so I thought I would scan it for you to enjoy as well.

Roitfeld Halloween Costumes

Happy Halloween! In celebration of my favorite holiday, I have compiled a collection of photos of the Roitfeld family in costume over the years. Julia Restoin-Roitfeld appears here in a series of sublime costumes: a cat with freaky yellow cat eyes via contact lenses, a classic French maid with turquoise blue feather duster tickler and sizzling hot pink lips, a wild leopardess held in check by her tamer and his whip, and of course the eternally innocent Snow White. Which one do you like best?

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld is dressed in traditional Oriental garb as his costume, behind him is Stavros Niarchos disguised as a sheik. Malheureusement, I was unable to find any photographs of Carine Roitfeld in costume for the occasion.
