While it's New York Fashion Week and invitations abound, choosing an event to attend last night was easy-peasy as Hearst played host to a screening of the highly anticipated new film Mademoiselle C, hosted by Harper's Bazaar Global Fashion Director Carine Roitfeld -herself the 'C' in question!
Directed by Fabien Constant, Mademoiselle C documents the 2012 launch of CR Fashion Book. Roitfeld is (of course) one of the most recognized faces in fashion - longtime the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris, muse to Tom Ford, oft collaborator to the industry's finest creatives and the woman I'd (and so many others) would most like to BE.
The film itself gives an intimate and rare glimpse at the inner workings not only of Roitfeld’s professional world but also her personal life, with partner (and founder of Equipment) Christian Restoin, children Julia and Vladimir and friends ranging from Karl Lagerfeld to Tom Pecheaux. It's a beautiful film about transition, gloriously dynamic and affectionate, without the overt ass-kissery seen so often in fashion.
Mademoiselle C opens tomorrow in limited release, and nationwide on September 30.
