Mademoiselle C

Fabien Constant

 

No, not Coco Chanel. This fly-on-the-wall doc is devoted to another fashion icon, Carine Roitfeld – ex editor of Vogue Paris and the woman who invented slinky sexy ‘porno chic’ with Tom Ford in the 1990s. Roitfeld is 58, looks like Iggy Pop’s sister, but damn this woman has something. ‘The sexiest girl in fashion’ is how one insider describes her. For fashion junkies, Mademoiselle C will be like five September issues of Vogue all rolled into one.

Mademoiselle C picks up with the fashion editor/stylist/image maker — she still doesn’t quite know what to call herself — in the wake of her resignation from Vogue Paris, where she served as editor-in-chief for 10 years. She’s embarked on a new adventure: to launch her own magazine, CR Fashion Book, in New York. It’s a fascinating process, to start something so ambitious from scratch, and the most interesting scenes captured by director Fabien Constant are artists at work.
