Roitfeld In Marrakech

The legendary hotel La Mamounia opened its famous doors last week after a three year closure and Carine Roitfeld was one of the many luminaries that checked in to celebrate the return of this Moroccan delight. The evening's entertainment included Cirque du Soleil and José Carreras and afterhours in the hotel lounge, Churchill Bar, a few of the stellar karaoke singers taking the stage were Carine Roitfeld, Matthew Williamson, Daria Werbowy, Inez van Lamsweerde, and Vinoodh Matadin. The party guests included Miranda Kerr, Orlando Bloom, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bryan Ferry, Juliette Binoche, and Adrien Brody. The hotel was redesigned by the acclaimed Jacques Garcia while closed; he also did Hôtel Costes in Paris. Among many other notable facts: La Mamounia was the setting for Alfred Hitchcock's amazing film The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Vogue Paris 2010 Calendar

Iselin Steiro, Natasha Poly, and Raquel Zimmerman were photographed by Mario Sorrenti at the Lido in Paris for the Vogue Paris 2010 calendar. The disco glamour theme of this year is certainly a sharp contrast to last year's pinup girls, they appear nearly prim by comparison. As another critic noted, where does fashion fit into the picture? I understand the concept of making art using girls, but this calendar barely includes clothing or accessories.

Vogue Paris December 2009/January 2010: Laetitia Casta

Going into a meeting so I will post more soon but wanted to let you know the rumor is true: Carine Roitfeld has selected Laetitia Casta as the guest editor for the December 2009/January 2010 issue of Vogue Paris.

Vogue Paris Collections

Carine Roitfeld is in charge of three publications: Vogue Paris, Vogue Hommes International, and Vogue Paris Collections. Since I learned about the third one only recently, I thought I'd share it with you in case you weren't aware of this unique resource. Vogue Paris Collections includes photographs of the entire collection of hundreds of designers from all over the world complete with accessories. Yes, we can all view this material online for free, but there is something about this thorough and comprehensive printed display of the collections that cannot be matched by an online viewing. It is much easier to perceive the theme of a collection when you can see all of the pieces at once, side by side. The collections are typically arranged in order of show location and then alphabetically by designer for easy reference. Provided of course that you know who shows where, but this is also a wonderful way to reinforce that knowledge should one need a refresher. The next issue, Vogue Paris Collections Spring/Summer 2010, is due on the racks December 4 so be sure to get your copy of this limited edition collectors' item.

Vogue Paris 2008 Calendar

While we all patiently await news of the December/January issue of Vogue Paris, including the guest editor and the calendar, I added the images from the Vogue Paris 2008 calendar to the gallery to help pass the time. The 2008 calendar is far superior to 2009, but I'll try to dig up those images and add them as well for archival purposes. Soon we will have the Vogue Paris 2010 calendar for comparison, I cannot wait to see it...
