Hi, Style || Carine Roitfeld

Let the others have the beauty.  I've got the charisma.
Carine Roitfeld

I have started watching documentaries while sweating it out on the treadmill.  I should share them with you because I have found some fascinating ones.  I just finished Mademoiselle C.  Carine Roitfeld was the editor of French Vogue for ten years.  This film follows her journey as she and her team launched her magazine, CR Fashion Book.  I should tell you that about 90% is in French.  Even though I could not understand most of what was said, I was completely captivated by this creative labor of love.  I am obsessed with her effortlessly chic personal and interior style, but what struck me most was her kind, supportive nature.  Even through this highly stressful process, she remained an encouraging team player.  She is a highly successful person with many people willing to do so much for her project because she was ever respectful and motivating.  Powerful lesson - you can be a woman at the top of your game and still be a nice human.  


Have a very chic day,
