Proving once again that a lovely girl can get away with almost anything. What is that, a skirt, top and tee shirt? Or a dress over a tee shirt? Or something else. The skirt and top would look great alone–the tee shirt conveys a false modesty…
It’s an Azzedine belt over a t shirt, but doesn’t quite work. The fit on the belt is not flattering and distorts the t shirt. I know the layered look she was going for, and it works the other 99.9% of the time!
I think Carine looks really great in this photo, as she has looked less than great in many other photos I have seen. The bustier is beautiful but I really don’t think it works over that grey frumpy tee (at all). I expect more from her. You wouldn’t catch Anna in an outfit like that!
Dear Sart- Love your site. Fantastic photography, making fashion fun and interesting intead of commercial and snobbish. And, of course, you’re a fantastic photographer.
I LOVE Roitfeld’s style. She has a brilliant eye for the modern, the original and the flattering.
But why oh why are all fashions suitable only for flat chested girls? As a slim naturaly size D, my only fashion option seems to be vulgur playboy outfits. Not everyone who’s curvy wants to look cheap!
Interesting–I think several of the comments point to why the “pigeon-toes” stance is so commonly affected by women in these photos. You can tell that Roitfeld is standing pigeon-toed herself, even though we can’t see her feet. And the comments note that she looks “innocent”, “childlike”, “fragile”, etc. I think it is a way for women to convey a sense of girlishness/playfulness, not to mention youthfulness, even when they are dressed to kill wearing 4-inch heels! Just my opinion, of course.
Speaking for all of us – May I? May I? – who like to think of ourselves as simple, chic, ladylike, neither freakish (God forbid) nor particularly costumelike on a good day: We do not exist in Paris only. Nor do we exist only in Milan. There, that’s out of my system now. I know you only meant well.
Carine Roitfeld can dress not wrong—-. I just want to sing: “She’s got it, yeah baby, she’s got it…”
I really appreciate your snaps of these stylishly eloquent dressers. Where I live, such people are seen maybe once every four years. I’m especially happy you post shots of women of a certain age—like C.R. Checking your site is a free education in clothing style—-Who needs world travel or a $20.00 Vogue Italia? Thank you for making the web world a more beautiful space.
