Julia Restoin Roitfeld: British GQ September 2014

I loved the images of Julia Restoin Roitfeld that appeared in the September 2014 issue of British GQ and I regret that I am only now finding the time to talk about the issue here. In typical French fashion, Julia appears casual, sexy, and elegant all at once in the photos by Guy Aroch as styled by Julie Ragolia. 

In the first image, Julia looks tough in a black leather shirt by Protagonist as she poses in front of a photo of Andy Warhol shot in the 1960s by Arthur Fellig (also known as Weegee).

We then see JRR lounging seductively on a blanket of fur while modeling a white lace bodysuit by Kiki de Montparnasse.

In the following shot, Julia gazes intensely at the camera in a grey knit sweater by Vince. I think she looks the most like her mother in this picture.

Next comes my favorite among the images: Mademoiselle J perches on a stool in the same grey knit sweater by Vince paired with knickers by Myla and shoes by Christian Louboutin. Bibliothécaire sexy… Ooo la la….

In the final photo, we see Julia Restoin Roitfeld enjoying a cup of tea while looking utterly comfy chic and alluring in a peach knit sweater by Ralph Lauren and knickers by Myla.

Carine Roitfeld: Stylist

In 2007, Rizzoli published a fascinating book, Stylist: The Interpreters of Fashion, which collects the work of sixteen legendary image makers as selected by Style.com, and of course Carine Roitfeld made this exclusive list. Browsing the lavish volume is a fashion education unto itself, with influential stylists such as Polly Mellen, Grace Coddington, Edward Enninful, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, and Karl Templer sharing memorable collaborations and sources of inspiration via interviews with Sarah Mower. Among the talented photographers that collaborated on these iconic images are Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon, Steven Meisel, Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino, Bruce Weber, Steven Klein, and Juergen Teller. Raul Martinez provided the creative direction for Stylist and Anna Wintour penned the foreword, in which she admits that as a fashion sittings editor she was never particularly good, although she certainly recognizes and champions editors that are particularly good. Which of her most memorable works did Carine Roitfeld choose to share in Stylist: The Interpreters of Fashion? I was hoping you would ask…

"The Butcher
The Face, 1997
Stylist: Carine Roitfeld
Model: Eva Herzigova
Photographer: Mario Testino

I love that Carine selected three images from her unforgettable editorial, "The Butcher," the work she considers her most compelling. Also notable, a print of the image above hangs in the home of art connoisseur Simon de Pury.

"Au Pérou, chez les Incas"
French Glamour, August 1993
Stylist: Carine Roitfeld
Model: Helena Christensen
Photographer: Mario Testino

This is one of the most famous of the Roitfeld/Testino collaborations for French Glamour, as well as personal: the location honors the photographer's Peruvian childhood and the model wore a Peruvian sweater belonging to the stylist's father. Trop mignon, non ?

"Néo-Moderne"
French Glamour, 1994
Stylist: Carine Roitfeld
Model: Nadja Auermann
Photographer: Mario Testino

This is the other most famous of the Roitfeld/Testino collaborations for French Glamour, again with a personal angle: the spread is shot in the néo-moderne apartment of Carine Roitfeld and Christian Restoin. Note also that the model lounges about wearing Gucci loafers, attracting the attention of Tom Ford and leading to one of the sexiest collaborations in fashion history.

Gucci by Tom Ford
Collection stills and ad campaign, 1995
Stylist: Carine Roitfeld
Photographer: Mario Testino

While Tom Ford is a talented designer and Mario Testino is an accomplished photographer, Carine Roitfeld must be credited with conducting the electricity that created the iconic Gucci look of 1995. As The New York Times observed at the time, "Imagine waking up one morning expecting Harriet Nelson to be making your breakfast and instead found Raquel Welch, circa 1968, beating the eggs."

"Corps & Lames"
Vogue Paris, February 2005
Stylist: Carine Roitfeld
Model: Gemma Ward
Photographer: Mario Testino

Gemma Ward is anything but innocent in "Corps & Lames," Carine's bizarrely beautiful homage to meat… and polka dots… and sheers… oh my…

Other material that Carine chose to share were images of herself as a young girl, with her family, with her Vogue Paris staff, and of her inspiration board, as well as the portrait below captured by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in March 2003 for V Magazine.

The Roitfelds In Yves Saint Laurent: Qui Porte Le Mieux ?

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld recently shared her beauty routine for a night out with Into The Gloss and I love that she borrowed her mother's vintage gold dress by Yves Saint Laurent for the photo shoot. Julia completed her look with large gold hoop earrings (not shown here) and black pumps with bows, tying in with the black velvet bow that cinches the waist of the dress.

Carine Roitfeld is pictured below wearing the same dress at the Vogue Bar at the Hôtel de Crillon during Paris Fashion Week in March 2010. She chose to accessorize vintage YSL with her César Compression pendant (and her Vogue Bar signature cocktail, "Carine's Tea Time").

Now I must ask: which Roitfeld wears it better? Feel free to express yourself in the comments below…
