TI has been driven mad on the question of what Carine does next
This whole Carine Roitfeld drama. It is the fashion scandal with the best legs in the best heels. But as a rumormonger, how to keep it spinning? TI"s gossip colleagues have focused on the "Who's The New Vogue Paris Editor " angle but TI has been driven mad on the question of what La Roitfeld does next. Today at a classic Hiss Squad lunch, the answer surfaced. Think Carine Roitfeld, the brand. Conspiracy Theory No. 1 is centered around the idea of a retrospective book of Madame Roitfeld's which would summarize her entire body of work, from her independent styling at magazines like The Face and French Glamour, to the heights of her Vogue Paris edits. Conspiracy Theory No 2 is seeing a bounty of creative consultancies at some of the hautest of houses, if not an exclusive with a certain legendary brand. But the juiciest tidbit concerns the idea of La Roitfeld as a kind of fashion icon of her own accord. I mean if ADR can have her own fragrance, why shouldn't the masses be able to buy a little bit of le style Roitfeld ? And then who would have the last laugh. As for "was she fired or did she quit" , TI is convinced he has the precise story down to the highly dramatic dialogue. But we'll save that for the book deal. Carry on Madame!
