    She is wonderfully stylish from the neck down but her hair and sunglasses make her look too much like Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream.

    None of my business, but, shouldn’t she have asked you to use your picture and then paid you for it?

    I literally saw this – handed my banker husband some scissors and had him chop off 4″ from my hair – and I’m feeling so much more like Corinne today. It’s liberating. I love her look – very sexy and confident. My hair is still longer – but – big step forward.

    Who can pull off the dark, mysterious, and edgy rocker-glam look all at the same time like Carine? No one does it better. BTW, I am intrigued by the wispy hair in the face look.

    Is it a short scirt with pockets? If it is I loove it! The jacket is super cool! Is this one of the Vogue editors with an impeccable style? I don’t remeber her name. Magazines in my country aren’t very updated on what goes on in America.

    Love your blog by the way, I check in many times daily. I wished it went faster to find many stylish people.. But I appreciate quality before quantity. :) So rock on!

    Have you seen that backdrop!?
    Can it get more dramatic?
    I will always say that the best of european fashion experience is the architecture: in this case it is half of the drama. Nice shot!

    When do architecture in the USA will have a sense of national pride? Industrial concrete does not count…

    Yes, Sart, your backgrounds are always great! But Maria @ 4:02 pm, you can’t be serious! Architectural pride? Ever been to Chicago? Or New York, for that matter? Many of the great European buildings you probably admire existed centuries before there WERE many buildings in America, (and were often financed by the aristocracy or the Church). That kind of building doesn’t occur anywhere anymore. As for materials–it all counts–concrete, metal, glass, stone–everything. How can one like modern fashion and dismiss modern architecture? Sorry, a little off-topic, but I had to weigh in…

    SART, awesome news about French Vogue, and more importantly, for getting a big vote of confidence from La Roitfeld! I’m heading to Paris in March and will be rifling through April’s issue hoping that’s the month your photo appears.

    Sart: I love your photos and all the impressions made here in the minds of our fellow Sartorialists. And congrats on the Paris Vogue.

    How much is that photo worth in US$?

    Just kidding.

    I often surface here as the contrarian. Actually, I enjoy the role, when I feel it’s needed.

    The look of this woman Sabrine, or Corine. Ah, Carine…whatever.

    To me, the look is highly representative of the worst element of the fashion industry: it’s so phony.

    I love the look of real people here, industry folks and models included, out wearing their look for the day. But this is so posed, so affected. One person posted here: “Attitude is everything.”

    I will post the contrarian’s view: Attitude is nothing.

    I looked on Google for photos of this pretty miss and I saw a real person, a girl with a job, a woman with friends, looking after her clothes, her hair, appearing as an individual, appearing alive and well.

    These photos were in such contrast to this one, where it could be anyone with sunglasses, unkempt hair, and attitude, which all say: “What you see is not me, but a cleverly manipulated device to take you away from seeing me and instead objectify me as….sex symbol…purple-lipped drug addict…rock star.” All of which my fellow Sartorialists picked up on here with their posts.

    Oh well, it’s contemporary with our times: the alure of the disengenuous. And the fashion industry loves it. Photographers too, apparently. Magazine designers.

    I’ll remind myself of more beneficial intentions and results when I look at this shot: Your photo will bring in the bacon to the family. And Miss Carine has a real life, one where she will return home and wash that crazy stuff out of her lovely head of hair at the end of the day. She will take off the too dark shades and show all the light and glimmer in her eyes. Thank the gods for all that.

    Love to everyone, hope you are smiling over there Ms. Carine. I now know you a little better than this photo would suggest – underneath all the posed attitude you are beautiful.

    - JCH

    As a Carine Watcher, I think that her face lights up when she smiles.
    I’d love to spend some time with her and her closet :)

    Probably an unpopular opinion here, but her hair and makeup look to me like someone who just rolled out of bed with a serious hangover. Maybe I’m too old, but I just don’t get what’s attractive about that. She’s a beautiful woman with style by the boatload, but I don’t think she’s looking her best here…

    She really reminds me of Iggy Pop around ’75. It’s the posture. But if she dyed her hair silver…wow.

    Ms Roitfeld is a fashion mega-star and when she appears, everybody swoons. She deserves the accolades for her elan and superb sense of style, particularly because she is what the French call belle-laide.

    In her 20s and 30s, that bad-boy look she cultivated had great panache and worked for her. But I think it is wearing thin now, partly because she’s been doing it too long, and partly that at her age, she can’t carry it off the way she used to. Her now 20-something daughter is effortlessly pretty, which only serves to make Mom look like she is trying too hard. And the dramatic posing, a la Galliano at the end of his shows, starts to look a little silly after awhile.

    Mind you, I symathize as I am considerably older than Ms. Roitfelt, but there comes a time when you just can’t pretend anymore.

    One of the great things Sartorialist does is give us superb examples of older men and women who maintain a great sense of style and fashion — and it works precisely becasuse they have too much dignity to be anything but who they are.
