If you hadn’t yet heard the lovely news, Carine Roitfeld, Editor-in-Chief of the soon-to-be launched CR Fashion Book, can now add grand-mere to her ever-expanding list of accolades. Born into one of the most fashion-forward families around, Carine’s daughter Julia Restoin Roitfeld yesterday gave birth to a little girl, named Romy Nicole Konjic.
Despite the new joyous addition, the first for Julia and her partner Robert Konjic, making Carine a first time grandma, life and work doesn’t stop for the super-stylist who, is also looking to give Anna Wintour a run for her money by starring in her very own version of the September Issue.
Directed by Fabien Constant, the documentary, entiled Mademoiselle C (or should that now read Madame?) chronicles the making of the September launch issue of Carine’s hotly-anticipated fashion magazine CR. Filming is already well underway, with a shortened version of the documentary to be unveiled this week at Cannes, where Carine is also hosting the first ever International Film Festival Fashion Show. Leading fashion designers Tom Ford, Donatella Versace and Karl Lagerfeld offer their personal thoughts and opinions on the ex-Vogue editrice and her new magazine, whilst the documentary is hoped to shed light on the French muse’s personal life.
With no official screening date yet announced we’re anticipating the documentary will launch during the run up to CR’s first issue in September. We’re already wishing our Summer’s away!
