Remember The Little Black Jacket Contest we sponsored way back when? One of the winning entries was a rap ode to Carine Roitfeld by Morgan Von Steen, and while I had long hoped that she would have time to produce a video of her rap for the site, alas time does not permit. Her CR rap is too fabulous not to share with all of you and so with no further ado, I am pleased to present…
Rap Ode To Carine Roitfeld
By Morgan Von Steen
Carine Roitfeld is one bad bitch.
When it comes to creating beauty, she gets off without a hitch.
I miss her at French Vogue. Team Carine all the way.
But it's nice to have her in New York. That's all I have to say.
I've spent my summer internship here walking down the streets.
I've kept my eyes out. She's the one I'd like to meet.
I want my hands on a copy of CR at this moment.
It's going to be killer. It's Carine. You know it!
I'm already applying to be part of her team.
To work in her presence would be a serious dream.
When I saw her at the CFDA Awards, I could only bow down.
When we watched her walk the carpet, I swear no one could frown.
We waved furiously like morons, and she gave us a smile.
It's a story I will pass down, when I have a child.
She is incredible, and inspiring, and it's news to no one.
I've seen almost every image of the things she has done.
Those Chanel ads are always stuck on my mind.
I want pink eyebrows, cat ears, with a tail in behind.
From black leather, to an infusion of color,
I'll always be a fan of her styling. Call me Carine Lover.
