Carine Roitfeld – Beauty Smoothie

The lady every girl would like to have as an Aunt/Mum/Sister, at 56 Carine Roitfeld exudes a fierce chic that even the A-lister ingenues she features find hard to pull off. Carine recently announced her departure from the top job at French Vogue, after a decade spent bringing it out of a bourgeois 1990’s mire, she will be sorely missed. Unusually for her industry Carine has eschewed the botox/filler route in favour of a curtain of honeyed, rock-chic hair and signature smokey make up to compliment her intelligent, deeply-set eyes. Her boyish figure and killer pins make her the best clothes horse a designer could wish for. Good luck with your next move Carine, we can’t wait to see what you do.
