She's most known for her role as former editor-in-chief of French Vogue however as a stylist, she is also very well known as part of a team with Tom Ford and Photographer Mario Testino. Together they are responsible for creating some of the most beautiful and iconic images of our time a partnership I imagine was very financially rewarding too. She worked closely with Tom Ford through his time at YSL and Gucci.

Now in the past, there have been comparisons between her and Anna Wintour how she loves to laugh and smile from the heart unlike Anna's very rehearsed smile. I have seen captions like the Anti Anna Also the now famous rumour I think around 2009 when people spoke of Anna being Dethroned from her seat at Us Vogue *shudders*. I love Carine, but I think Anna was created for Vogue and Vogue for Anna.
Anyway moving on, one of my guilty pleasures(if you consider data charges ) or maybe I say favourite past time is watching fashion videos on You Tube. Documentaries, interviews any thing about people working in the industry, I will watch also I will read too. Carine videos I find quite interesting especially cos of the French accent.
"I think that most of the women when they dress in the morning, they try to be someone else…Today there is too much retouching, and I don't like it...except on me." —Carine Roitfeld Quote from NY times
