hot damn! sexy! especially drawn to the last image… the light neutrals, gorgeous hair and the shades…
October 20, 2009 at 9:36 am
impossibly glamorous…guess that must come with being french!
October 20, 2009 at 9:37 am
Those heels are so sexy! European chic is so simple and sexy. Less is best. No scarves or over draping of accessories.
October 20, 2009 at 9:38 am
These women are awesome!
October 20, 2009 at 9:39 am
Those two ladies ROCKS!!!!Personally I like E.Alt more, but that's just because she dresses in a style I find really really cool and appealing, and much easier to approach. Carine is so funny cos she dresses like a lady, Femme Fatale, and she is SO feminine, but combined with her rock'n roll hair and poses it just makes her style untouchable in a way. I love it when you put ladies here, not only young girls..! Thanks Scott, you're doing a fabulous job.
October 20, 2009 at 9:41 am
Goshdarnit, how cool are they?! I want to be Carine Roitfeld when I grow up!
October 20, 2009 at 9:43 am
She looks really happy…

great pictures, leather pants are hot!!! heels look sexy
come check out the first ever fashion blog from a guys POV, let He know what you think
October 20, 2009 at 9:45 am
Is that the same dress in white and black? Also, a smile wouldn't kill her, would it?
October 20, 2009 at 9:46 am
love the shoes in the first picture.. classic but with a small twist
October 20, 2009 at 9:47 am
It's amazing to see beautiful women who are confident of herselves!
October 20, 2009 at 9:50 am
Her stance makes me laugh. I get it, but it's still funny.
October 20, 2009 at 9:51 am
Wow wowo wow – Dangerous and fatal Ladies; Love the Shoes, love the Postures.
October 20, 2009 at 9:52 am
Love all the outfits in this post. the leather pants are hot!
October 20, 2009 at 9:53 am
Oh I don't know who I prefer, they're both so stylish!
I'm obsessed with the other lady’s leather jeans. How DID she get into them? Vaseline?
I like the white better.Same necklace, different lengths, different looks, interesting.
October 20, 2009 at 9:56 am
What a pose Carine strikes in the first pic…bit scary :(
October 20, 2009 at 10:05 am
I like both versions. Both stylish.Personaly, I'm worried about her foots on fist pic. I'm not so brave to wear that shoes ;)
I love Carine!Such classic style
October 20, 2009 at 10:06 am
Oh Carine! I dont Know who is Carine, but I dont mine.
October 20, 2009 at 10:09 am
absolutely always so put together, from head to toe. kind of infuriating! so beautiful so french.
October 20, 2009 at 10:10 am
LOVE both looks – I've seen Carine's black choes before – totally glamorous and timeless.Amazing how clean and simple everything is but the impact is to the MAX!Encore!
October 20, 2009 at 10:18 am
i never get tired of them. :)
October 20, 2009 at 10:19 am
Ah! ialian women,the class!
October 20, 2009 at 10:23 am
How interesting you chose "Black and White" as your caption!
October 20, 2009 at 10:24 am
She do have a style
But with a LITTLE smile on her face she will be more pretty i think, OUI ou NON?
October 20, 2009 at 10:25 am
I'm sure it would be a lot prettier if she smiled.
October 20, 2009 at 10:26 am
Just want to say: "Mais arrête de faire la gueule, Carine!"
October 20, 2009 at 10:36 am
The blond is so long! It is a very classy and clean contrast she makes by pairing the horizontal pleats in her skirt/dress with the length of her legs. Wonderful!
October 20, 2009 at 10:40 am
Carine is always perfect!
October 20, 2009 at 10:42 am
So… smiling is out this season?
October 20, 2009 at 10:45 am
Her style is flawless and elegant and yet somehow fails to engage me; her body language is so stiff and unapproachable that I feel like I'm looking at a mannequin. Reminds me of Victoria Beckham…
October 20, 2009 at 10:48 am
great shots! the lighting at the first one is superb
More E. Alt, please! She's like a wonderful palette cleansing sorbet in a world of fug
October 20, 2009 at 10:49 am
too much stylethey look like my mothers friendsamazingabsolutely gorgeous shoesId saw her wearing this;;; http://www.mercedessalazar.com/new_en/vmchk/necklaces/456-sea-urchinXOXO
October 20, 2009 at 10:53 am
She's in fashion !
October 20, 2009 at 11:15 am
Kim Deal and Iggy Pop.
The clothes and shoes are great, they both also have awesome bodies, but they look harsh! They need a touch of make-up and maybe new hair styles.
October 20, 2009 at 11:19 am
god I love her too much!
October 20, 2009 at 11:23 am
Oh Carine, Carine…since the days she was a stylist until now, what a career! And always gorgeous.To look stunning without interruptions is a full time job really…think about it.thechukker.blogspot.com
October 20, 2009 at 11:27 am
I don't know who Carine is, but she could take herself a little less seriously..
October 20, 2009 at 11:32 am
Sexy, strong, powerfull…
October 20, 2009 at 11:34 am
T-straps are the absolute sexiest shoes in the world. Elegant, a little innocent and totally hot.
more information on the leather pleeeeeeze. E Alt is too cool for school.
October 20, 2009 at 11:36 am
I love a woman who knows how to scowl.
October 20, 2009 at 11:37 am
gorgeous photos. I love the shoes… and the white blazer is stunning.
When are you coming to South Florida for a book signing??!?!
October 20, 2009 at 11:38 am
Emmanuelle Alt and Carine Roitfeld both look so glamorous!
October 20, 2009 at 11:40 am
Raw power. Total lust for life.
October 20, 2009 at 11:50 am
that girl a the left at the picture above is really hot!!!
October 20, 2009 at 11:53 am
Love the way that the clothes make a statement yet they are so effortless in the styling. Love that the hair is so "not" styled almost grungy. the lighting in the first picture trips me out, I can almost smell the Italian air. Just perfect!
October 20, 2009 at 11:56 am
they look like rock stars
like how the stones look nowadays
October 20, 2009 at 11:57 am
And no one ever tells Carine she's too old to wear anything! Keep it up!
October 20, 2009 at 12:04 pm
Fierce and sexy!Love the nude shoes on those amazing legs.
October 20, 2009 at 12:12 pm
Interesting captures! She has her pluses and minuses, but the minuses just make her stronger!
October 20, 2009 at 12:37 pm
October 20, 2009 at 12:41 pm
October 20, 2009 at 12:50 pm
E. Alt is fantastic.
October 20, 2009 at 12:52 pm
i loveee the last outfit. it's so chic, and the neutral colors look amazing together/on her!
October 20, 2009 at 1:30 pm
lighten up Sister..
October 20, 2009 at 1:35 pm
Carine is so cool!!! I alwyas love her style … we are wiating for you to sign your book in Santiago Chile …
October 20, 2009 at 1:43 pm
They are both so freaking fabulous, it's almost painful. If women could all look like this, I'd be all for cloning.
The best thing of all is that they are so not into handbags.
October 20, 2009 at 1:47 pm
Like it alot
October 20, 2009 at 2:12 pm
SOMEbody has a signature pose….
October 20, 2009 at 2:29 pm
I was wondering if anyone else noticed! Percy B, whoever you are, I came to comment the same thing, and you beat me to it (yours happens to be the last comment at the moment I"m posting).
There's something almost touchingly 'little girl' about the editor of Paris Vogue having a signature pose: it's like she's practiced it in the mirror. It's uncanny that you caught it in black, and then white.
It goes without saying, both women look SO RAD!!
October 20, 2009 at 2:30 pm
she's fierce and has amazing legs for her age-it's a compliment not a criticism,many ladies over 40 would like to have them ;)

Carine is always so chic! Love that white skirt!
October 20, 2009 at 3:06 pm
fierce… but awesome
October 20, 2009 at 3:23 pm
Eeek! How can you not mention Emmanuelle Alt in this post?!
She's one of my fashion idols! Consistent style.
October 20, 2009 at 3:27 pm
Love both photos
October 20, 2009 at 3:43 pm
Carine is missing her smile. Leave the poker face to Posh Carine, you look radiant when you smile.
October 20, 2009 at 4:07 pm
Love how the pic and the outfit are so simple. The shoes are amazing, quite cool that she hasn't let anything pop out, no accent color, monochrome and tone to tone – yet we still notice her and love her ;-
October 20, 2009 at 4:43 pm
wow. she's looking like ready to kill the first one, who dares to touch her dress…
October 20, 2009 at 5:03 pm
Carine does have an amazing smile. Though she's the fashion goddes, she'll do what she wants!
October 20, 2009 at 5:06 pm
I can see the confident in them!! Love their looks!
October 20, 2009 at 5:26 pm
Ok, they are working it out…lovely ladies!
October 20, 2009 at 5:41 pm
October 20, 2009 at 5:50 pm
Yikes! These women have beautiful clothes, but they look like they could (and would) beat me up.

October 20, 2009 at 5:59 pm
Powerful women, that all!
October 20, 2009 at 6:27 pm
beautiful outfits, but i would love them a lot more if i didn't feel like she hated me with that glare…
can't wait to see you in SF tomorrow!
October 20, 2009 at 6:50 pm
Dude, the second one…what a shot. Love the minimalism of the bare concrete wall. Concrete – the ultimate building material invented by us Italians. But I digress…
She is reminiscent of a well dressed agent, international spy, personal minder whose lethal capabilities are only betrayed by her very feminine disposition. The type of woman you can't help but gravitate towards regardless of the nagging voice in the back of your skull which tells you she's going to strangle you with her bra or acquaint you intimately with the dense qualities of the wall.
Dangerous, gorgeous, lethal, feminine. Like a moth to the flame Purely for the challenge, I would stand no chance.
October 20, 2009 at 6:51 pm
Wow . . . they are both looking fierce — literally and figuratively.
October 20, 2009 at 7:09 pm
October 20, 2009 at 7:21 pm
The first picture is the first and the last picture (probably ever) in the existence of internet where two older ladies are depicted as extremely sexy human species.
This one should be the backcover of your book VOLUME II.
October 20, 2009 at 7:46 pm
She is bad to the bone, as they say. The incredible clothes and accessories never wear her, she wears them. Love her!
October 20, 2009 at 7:59 pm
LOVE MS.ROITFIELD……..WHO SAYS WE DON'T HAVE GREAT ROLE MODELS TODAY…….THIS WOMAN IS ALL ABOUT INTELLEGENCE & CREATIVITY….THAT'SEXY
October 20, 2009 at 8:05 pm
You can post Carine photos all day and I will never tire of them. A true fashion icon!
October 20, 2009 at 9:17 pm
They are both major style icons. Love them!
October 20, 2009 at 10:03 pm
IT'S ON! Carine versus Emmanuelle. Whose side are you on?
October 21, 2009 at 4:04 am
Carine outdoubtedly has great style, but I just want to give her a little tickle so that she looks even slightly less [email protected] off.
October 21, 2009 at 5:54 am
Smile!! It goes a long way!
October 21, 2009 at 10:12 am
Work it girl! super fierce
October 21, 2009 at 11:28 am
I've never seen a photo of Alt in a skirt. Is there one?
October 21, 2009 at 12:22 pm
Carine looks so good in her black Alaia outfit.
October 21, 2009 at 12:36 pm
>>> the best accessory for this lady would be a SMILE!!! <<<
October 21, 2009 at 1:42 pm
I loooooove that white blazer!!!!!!!!
October 21, 2009 at 2:03 pm
these outfits are amazing and make me miss living in italy!!
Since Age Zero
October 21, 2009 at 2:31 pm
gah – I hope i age like Carine!
October 21, 2009 at 5:15 pm
First thing I saw was Iggy Pop.
October 21, 2009 at 10:23 pm
She looks so…fierce and unfriendly. But stylish!
October 22, 2009 at 11:00 am
Love the huge difference between C's pose for you here, and her much softer aspect over on Garance's blog. Context is everything.
October 22, 2009 at 1:53 pm
I Love the shoes.Always
Cheers from ParisMonica
October 22, 2009 at 7:47 pm
Two weathered look ladies that do not appear to be complement their tragically boring outfits.
October 22, 2009 at 8:01 pm
The gladiator heels and tight leather pants on the woman on the left in the first picture are memorable. The other woman is trying too hard.
October 23, 2009 at 2:02 am
it should be taught, how to BE the way she IS….
October 23, 2009 at 5:34 am
Carine is def one of my faves- even more then Giovanna or Anna or whoever else. She is always classy and feminine. I absolutely love her style.
October 23, 2009 at 7:55 am
She's so chic and sexy ! She makes me proud to be Parisian !

Holy Herve Leger!
October 24, 2009 at 3:21 pm
amazing leather pants! :)
October 25, 2009 at 4:06 am
So this Carine chick is the Anna Wintour of France? Or is it the other way around?
Or maybe she's the Anna de la Russo of France. Yeah, that's more like it. They kind of resemble each other.
October 25, 2009 at 9:50 am
eeeuuwww too old and trying tooooo hard to be sexy. pathetic.
October 25, 2009 at 11:49 am
Smile and the world smiles with you.
October 25, 2009 at 12:07 pm
Very nice!Especially the shoes..!Although I don't wish to see my mom in these. =p
October 25, 2009 at 3:33 pm
I don't think she needs to smile. I do think she needs to soften, just a little. I would love to see her stop clenching and open her posture. Calm power is a creative sexiness that doesn't need to smile or flinch.
October 26, 2009 at 10:51 am
i have always loved carine roitfeld. she is absolutely gorgeous.
October 26, 2009 at 4:58 pm
She is the definition of Fierce!!
October 27, 2009 at 12:06 pm
shes soo hard.oufff
October 27, 2009 at 6:12 pm
October 27, 2009 at 10:24 pm
A sexy woman indeed – but the perils of ageing indicate her hemline needs to come down somewhat.
October 28, 2009 at 2:43 am
oh carine you always look so bored,so almost cranky, is fashion all too much for you i never think you inhabit the fashion and that 'm afraid is the secret to style and iconic glamour ,just look at mr cary grant and perharps tilda swinton.
ana love from sydney
October 28, 2009 at 10:39 pm
that is a man.
October 29, 2009 at 1:00 pm
ok, she has got money and power, and also good clothes, but…she looks ugly and sad…
October 29, 2009 at 7:20 pm
Alt looks great as ever, but slightly more glamorous than I'm used to?And Roitfeld is the sharpest editor-in-chief around, definitely
October 30, 2009 at 1:57 am
Just hilarious. If ever "Absolutely Fabulous" spawns a sixth series, these two must be signed immediately for cameo appearances.
November 5, 2009 at 12:49 am
Scott,you am amazing photographer, and a beautiful person, thank you for responding to my email. Roitfeld & Alt look stunning!
November 6, 2009 at 7:35 pm
You'd think that just being Carinne Roitfeld would give her something to smile about! Maybe the shoes pinch…
November 11, 2009 at 11:45 am
like a song!
August 19, 2010 at 10:57 am
Style is nothing without a positive charisma!
September 13, 2011 at 8:28 am
Wow! The combined attitude of these two women could provide a new fuel source! Gotta love a French women!
March 1, 2012 at 3:03 am
chic and elegant..i love it!
April 1, 2012 at 5:29 am
The clothes are faultless but in my opinion it is never cool or sexy to look that miserable. Smile! Life is beautiful – especially when you’re so well dressed!

Everytime I see this lady she looks like she is mad a the world. She reminds me of a high school teacher I had who at the time was the most stylish woman I have ever seen, but she never smiled and that just took all of her style away. As President and CEO of “A Stylish Way Of Life”, I have learned that true style is so much more than just having having a sharp outfit on. It is mostly about the way you carry yourself and the vibe you project.
October 18, 2014 at 5:31 pm
Why does she have to smile? Her eyes tell the story.
