Would you like to own this portrait of Julia Restoin Roitfeld by Pamela Hanson? Don’t miss your chance to add this work to your personal art collection, if the price is right… Julia posed as part of a project titled “Art For Love,” an exhibition of images by 32 photographers curated by Fabien Baron and organized by Moncler in celebration of their “Maya” puffer jacket.
When asked about the inspiration behind the puffer jacket as subject, Remo Ruffini, the president of Moncler, replied: “I chose the Maya jacket as the ‘subject’ of this project because it represents [the brand’s] heritage, and is at the same time so iconic that these master lensmen could interpret it as they wished. The exhibition features extraordinary images by masters of the camera who use their very own language to depict love as the bedrock of the life of human beings… It’s something really incredible because we gave [the photographers] the freedom; we didn’t give them any brief. We said you have to do exactly you, and that was really the key... You really see the jacket but in different ways. In some pictures it looks like a sports jacket, in some pictures it looks like a piece of art.”
The “Art For Love” images were exhibited privately at an exclusive opening event at the New York Public Library and the guest list was sublime: of course Julia Restoin Roitfeld was among the guests as well as Lucky Blue and Pyper America Smith, the current faces of Moncler, Franca Sozzani, Francesco Carrozzini, Giovanna Battaglia, Terry Richardson, Paolo Roversi, Pamela Hanson, Margherita and Teresa Missoni, and Eva Cavalli.
The proceeds from “Art For Love” will help to fund research by Carine Roitfeld’s favorite charity, amfAR, via their project Countdown to a Cure for AIDS. Julia herself wrote on Instagram: “So proud to be part of the @moncler x @amfar exhibition shot by @pamela_hanson and curated by @fabienbaron #artforlove #amfar New York Public Library.” The photographs are on auction via Paddles through 29 September, bid now for your chance to own this exquisite portrait of Julia Restoin Roitfeld.
The list of photographers involved in the “Art For Love” project reads like a Who’s Who of today's tops from A to Z…

Ever the loyal friend, Julia Restoin Roitfeld turned out to support the burgeoning careers of two women last night in New York City. First Julia appeared at the debut of the fashion collaboration between her friend Margherita Missoni and Peroni Nastro Azzurro, looking luminous in a black satin and lace camisole tucked into a black pencil skirt belted at the waist. The collaboration launched on the rooftop of Gramercy Park Hotel. Others in attendance included Jessica Hart, Rachel Zoe, Margherita Missoni, Teresa Maccapani Missoni, and Charlotte Ronson, pictured below with JRR.
Julia then moved on to the first solo art exhibition by her friend Rebecca Dayan at Catherine Ahnell Gallery. I really like the style of Dayan’s watercolor portraits, she has a beautiful touch. Regarding the inspiration behind her work, the French artist shared: “I became fascinated by religious iconography depicting religious ecstasy and the inherent human need to find meaning and solace in altered states — communing with a higher power through religion, sex, drugs, money, etc. There is an inherent need in all of us to imbue ideas, symbols, and people with meaning in order to fight the inevitable. Most of the time we distract ourselves to not face the truth, until we reach moments of freedom and bliss. It is in these small fleeting moments that I am interested.” The Rebecca Dayan exhibition “MORES” runs through 11 October in NYC if you would like to see her paintings for yourself.

I always enjoy a glimpse of the beauty products of Julia Restoin Roitfeld and the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar kindly provides a look at her current favorites. In this month’s “Beauty Diaries,” the magazine shares insider secrets to be fabulous at any age (up to 60) and Julia was chosen to represent women in their 30s. Which products does JRR consider top shelf? What tips does she offer? Let’s take a peek…
“I love 60s references. Sophia Loren’s winged eyeliner was always super sultry.” Everyday essentials: Bobbi Brown concealer, Luma blush, Eyeko mascara, Kiehl’s lip balm. Evening picks: M.A.C. taupe shadow, Eyeko liquid liner, and M.A.C. nude glosses. Preferred polish: Essie’s Muchi, Muchi pink: “I get a manicure twice a week and a pedicure once a week. This color is neutral enough to go with everything.”
“I’m bad at styling my own hair, plus it tends to get very dry, so I keep it simple and let it air-dry to a soft, natural wave. When I have an event, I go to my local Drybar salon.” Tress prep: Rahua shampoo, Kiehl’s olive oil mask, and Moroccanoil Treatment. Hair pro: Colorist Christopher John at Alessandro Mangerini Salon “colors my gray roots, but I hate getting haircuts — it always looks too short! I get trims on shoots.”
DIET & FITNESS
“Whenever I’m on a diet, all I think about is eating, so when I don’t restrict myself I feel better. But I do try to stick to organic foods.” Breakfast: Juice Press kale smoothie. Best brunch: Eggs, pancakes, and oysters at Soho House. “I love mixing savory with sweet.” Lunch: A sandwich, a Cobb salad, or sushi. Dinner: “I eat my daughter’s leftovers — roast chicken and mash or fish and vegetables.” Guilty pleasures: Rubirosa pepperoni pizza and Häagen-Dazs. Fitness routine: “I feel guilty if I don’t work out.” SoulCycle three times a week and Ballet Beautiful twice a week “for toning.”
SKIN & BODY
“I’ve never done Botox. I spend a lot of money on products because I prefer to prevent aging rather than have to fix things later on.” Skin savers: Eve Lom Cleanser, LaPrairie moisturizer, Sunday Riley moisturizer and eye cream, and Natura Bissé Glyco Extreme Peel “to remove dead skin and get a glow.” Favorite facial: Mist Beauty’s laser facial to “tighten my skin” once a month. Body basics: Kiehl’s body butter and Aurelia oil. Fragrance: Bonpoint. Indulgence: Massages at the Prince de Galles hotel in Paris.
