Mademoiselle C.

Say bonjour to Carine Roitfeld

Fabien Contstant’s doc reveals the face of fashion no one wants to admit exists... where editors are adored and haute designers clown around with toddlers.
 
Mme C. is Carine Roitfeld, ex-editor of Vogue Paris and former stylist. She’s a maternal presence – her own son calls her a MILF. Which makes for fantastic access, if minimal drama.
 
The shoots she stage-manages look like scenes from an Alejandro Jodorowsky movie, and seeing Karl Lagerfeld pushing a pram is a hoot. But when Condé Nast try to stymie her new magazine, it’s a minor wrinkle in a film in need of bigger ones.
