There are some very good designers in France. French Elle has showcased them for years. Vogue Paris was just too busy talking about Balmain and the other high luxury brands to give them some pages.
I agree, but in the same time, in the past VP was working and focusing it's energy on brands like Balenciaga, Balmain, Givenchy, Marant, ... because they weren't so big, as they are now. In US, big brand were big, so it was much easier to focus on new designers. In 2005 Balenciaga, Balmain, Givenchy, Marant, ... were not that big as they are now. I believe that Carine did a lot to help them. Maybe that's the reason, why she didnt focused on young/new designers?

^ That's true, but after a few years it all became repetitive. And brands like Balenciaga and Givenchy are backed by luxury giants PPR and LVMH.

On another subject, weren't the Barneys windows supposed to be styled by Carine from today? I went past Barneys in New York tonight but there was nothing special. Did I misunderstand?

Carine Roitfeld and Azzedine AlaÔa Agree: ‘There’s Nothing Less Chic Than a Woman Who Borrows Clothes’

Carine.Photo: Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images

"I think it's terrible to wear borrowed clothes," Roitfeld tells V magazine. "I don't think it's chic. A couple of years ago, Azzedine AlaÔa loaned me a coat that I wore to New York. It was photographed a lot, and everyone wanted to buy it afterward. When I went to return it, Azzedine said, 'No, you keep it. There's nothing less chic than a woman who borrows clothes.'"
wait-what?!...
so she thought it was ok to borrow clothes until azzedine alaia told her it wasn't chic?!...
......

wow---she's having quite a change of heart these days...
no more cigarettes...no more fur...etc...
what's next?...no more sex?...

...:p

I'd have thought/expected her to borrow some clothes, such as those Pucci and Balmain white gowns to Cannes while she was at VP, those were on loan i think. And I also assume she gets freebies too from the likes of Givenchy and DG, or big discount from YSL et al. Whether she gets these benefits or not, I think so, with her iconic status and overall power as brand Carine. Sure she can get any Tom Ford as she wishes too, as Mr Ford counts on her judgment still.

So I think it's a bit of a hypocrite to say such a thing, non?
Fur, handbag, no ciggie etc... yes, she's changed alot, but I also think it's about time for her to change.

no matter what, can't get enough of her still.

^I think she meant that she didn't want to work for US Vogue. where everything has to be tame and politically correct.
