Carine Roitfeld: Stirs V Up!

I'm so looking forward to Carine Roitfeld's editorial reemergence with V's September's Heroes issue. Something tells me that it's going to be fiercer and fresher than her French Vogue days.  Congrats Carine for stepping out and stepping up!  

In September's issue of V, Carine Roitfeld plays with one of the fashion icons of today, Elizabeth Taylor. Here's a preview: 

Carine Roitfeld is the perfect example of what can happen when you relentlessly push forward.  She had a lukewarm modeling career which she transformed into a slightly more successful writing career, which she then transformed into a styling, then contributor, and finally editor of one of the most powerful magazines in fashion, French Vogue.  And here's what I love about Carine; she left the magazine the same way she entered the styling realm; she put her stamp of approval on a 10 year old name Thylane, just like she had done with her daughter years ago for Vogue Bambini when she first started out. 


It upset many and people are still debating the decision. But I do believe they've missed the point.  Carine is having a go, a personal go at fashion.  She's not afraid to stir the pot, I just wished she would have put Thylane on the cover.  Oh, the outrage.
