CARINE ROITFELD hosted Paris Fashion Week's spookiest party last night, inviting the fashion pack to get in the mood for Halloween early at her Vampire Ball.

Held on the penultimate night of Fashion Week at the capital's Raspoutine restaurant, guests dressed accordingly, albeit with a high fashion edge.

Roitfeld, Natalia Vodianova and Ciara all dressed up in dramatic Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci designs, while Anna Dello Russo picked a Giles swan headpiece straight from the designer's spring/summer 2012 catwalk.

Models galore got in the spirit - inlcuding Miranda Kerr, Karlie Kloss, Anja Rubik and Abbey Lee Kershaw - accessorising designer gowns with blood red pouts, dramatic smoky eyes and even the odd vampire fang.

Here's the article that came with the photos (translated with Google)...

Quote:
The former editor of Vogue Paris moves on with the same creative energy pegged to the stiletto. His biography, aptly named Irreverent, place the path of a free central figure of the fashion sphere. It gives us, at home, his philosophy of style.

Last January, the new fell like a guillotine: after ten years of loyal service, Carine Roitfeld leave the editor in chief of Vogue Paris. Fear and Trembling on the planet Fashion! The icon of porno chic, the muse of Riccardo Tisci, the one we called him in the middle of the "Irreverent" turned the page. A burning issue when everyone's lips: is there life after Vogue? Carine R. For, the answer is yes. "I barely had time to feel a" Vogue blues, "she said. I was immediately approached by Barneys to sign their windows. The idea was to bring together all the personalities I like and have them put on the lens of Mario Sorrenti in my favorite fashion season. "A work called" Carine's World "and unveiled to the public mid-September. Projects, she has a drawer full: "I get new proposals almost daily. I have even proposed creating a Barbie doll in my image! ... I refused. I am committed to an adventure, it must have a logic and meaning. "No question of scatter. Ms. Roitfeld launches new baby: a biography entitled logically Irreverent (published by Rizzoli). "It's been two and a half years I've been working on this book with Olivier Zahm. A collage of photos, memories, thoughts and encounters which traces my thirty years. My first steps in the press, I got to Vogue, the birth of my children, the loss of my parents ... all there. "To flip through this Bible, she would feel a touch of nostalgia? "No, she corrects, I tell myself that I had a good life: I still live with the same man and I am very close to my children. I was the queen of porno chic, I was politically incorrect. I did some things yesterday that I would do today. For me to reinvent myself. "


We imagined the party girl? It's a real mother hen. It is believed snob? It appears natural and funny. "It's not because I am perched on heels I'm stuck. Some people in jeans and sneakers are a thousand times more than me. "His only mania: a small shot of vodka every night," a nod to my Russian origins, and then I have not found anything better to decompress. "What about the future? "The fashion week in full swing. I will attend some fashion shows in other boycott. I now have the luxury to choose. And I plan to reconnect with my readers. Why not through a new magazine in my name? I am looking for the right formula, I think. "Carine is back.

My definition of fashion
It should be an art. But it is not always. The mode is difficult to bridge between the creation and improvement of the wearer. I admire the creative process, but we must never forget that a woman will slip into the garment. You should know the sublime. Azzedine Alaia did that very well.

My definition of glamor
Be well for him in his look, that is to say neither surhabillée or under-dressed. An accuracy not always easy to find.

My definition of elegance
It's innate. We can learn not err in fashion, you can never learn elegance. A way of life, the beauty of the soul, a posture. I say that elegance is Beyond fashion.


My icon
Elizabeth Taylor. A source of inspiration. It was a great lady who defended beautiful causes long before everyone else. She made ​​fun of what people will say it, it was heading. She created The amfAR and has never let go. She was glamorous and generous. I've never met, and that's a huge regret.

The worst lack of taste
Not be consistent fashion with age. There is a time for everything, you have to give up some lengths. My motto: be still the best, but in your yard.


The object that never leaves me
My BlackBerry. I spend my time sending "BBM" to my husband and my children. I know where they are, what they do. We stay connected.

My three basic
A pair of black Manolo Blahnik shoes, a combination of black lace signed Carine Gilson, the prettiest lingerie fashion that is, the compression version of Caesar pendant that I always wear around your neck.

The perfect dress
To each his own, very personal. For me, it's black, long sleeve, silk, knee length and "fittée" for the day. For the evening, it would be the same but long, cut diagonally and signed John Galliano, the best cutter dresses.

Transmission
My mom dressed very well. I still remember putting on her dresses Pucci. My father, too, was elegant in a spontaneous and natural. Small, the mode does not fascinated me. I discovered it quite late, when I was sent to England in Carnaby Street, people were bluffing me. My first diversion mode was a military jacket unearthed flea. Subsequently, I dare any: even ski in shorts and thick socks.

Holding to appeal
Always be ready for seduction, because it is a situation that does not s'anticipe. Being natural is the best playing cards. When does too much, it misses. Less is more.

I never wear
Mules! Perfectly anti-sexy.

My favorite designers
It's very difficult to answer this question. I love some of their work, others have become friends. Let's say I really like Tom Ford and Riccardo Tisci. I find Rick Owens awesome for me, it's the new Madame Grès.

My style
It is immutable and always revolves around the same basic: knee length skirt, high heels, coat "FITT" and black eyes.


The play of my favorite dressing
Signed Alaia dress fully molded on my body. This dress is a bit like a second skin, armor, she is in every respect. Let's say my dress is iconic.

A life without heels is ...
Completely unthinkable, except in the summer, on vacation, I only covers the dish. I started to put on heels when I worked with Mario Testino. He is tall, I had to climb to its height. I have never left. I love the look they give to a woman and especially the sound of heels on the floor. It's quite sensual. My thing? Cut a half inch for comfort, that changes everything! The ultimate chic? Dare association robe and bare feet on an evening.

My best fashion memory ...
The first time I saw my initials in a magazine. It was there thirty years in it. I was very proud.

... And the worst
The loss of Alexander McQueen. I was very touched to see him so tormented. I then asked many questions about the profession: it asks too many designers? How to hold out against the hectic pace?


My last purchase
A black silk blouse by Balenciaga. A must.

My fashion dream
Impossible encounters with personalities. I dream to meet such Yves Saint Laurent at the time of the Palace. I deeply admire this man and what he has inspired fashion: the ambivalence of feminine / masculine, casual. Every morning, looking me in the mirror, I wonder if I am a woman Yves Saint Laurent.

A Super-Stylish Vampire
By SUZY MENKES
Published: October 6, 2011

PARIS — If the definition of a vampire is a pallid, blood-sucking monster with frightening fangs, Carine Roitfeld, former editor of French Vogue and a pivotal figure in the fashion world, does not seem to fit the bill.

With her thin face and weeping hair, she has been described as the female version of the rocker Iggy Pop — or more cruelly as “monkey face.” Yet even the most catty critic would have to admit that she is an extraordinarily elegant primate, the incarnation of a slightly twisted French chic in her uniform of to-the-knee pencil skirts, silk blouses, leather jackets and an ever-changing roster of stiletto-heeled footwear.

The party she gave this week at the close of a month of international fashion shows was to celebrate, for the last and final time, the publication by Rizzoli of her appropriately titled book: “Irreverent.”

This evening did not, like the one in New York, have Valentino and his partner Giancarlo Giammetti crooning. But Ms. Roitfeld drew into her lair, the Russian club Chez Raspoutine, a fashion A-list that ranged from her favored designer, the brooding Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy (whose dress she wore), through Haider Ackermann, Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, Peter Dundas of Pucci, Diane Von Furstenberg, Olivier Theyskens and even Karl Lagerfeld (who left his own Chanel party to see her). She also added in the supermodels Natalia Vodianova and Karolina Kurkova, the photographers Mario Testino and Terry Richardson and executives from the major brands.

And all that when Ms. Roitfeld is out of a job — having come to the end of the line with French Vogue after a 10-year stint. Her version is that she chose to go. And she says that, in retrospect, how she approached her job — as a fashion director as well as editor — was probably not as wise as the role played by Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of American Vogue, who directs, but is not involved with creating the images.

“Why a book — especially for someone like me who hates looking back?” Ms. Roitfeld asked herself, sitting in her large and elegantly spare apartment in central Paris, recreating the bourgeois area in which she was raised — although with a rip-roaring Russian cinéaste father alongside her haute Parisian mother.

“It marks 30 years. The end of a chapter is a good moment — and they have been ‘belles années,’ beautiful years, when I have succeeded in work and with my family,” said the editor, referring to her partner of 30 years and her two children, Julia and Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, whom she pushes to the foreground as much as her partner, Sisley Restoin, is in the shadows.

The book opens with a T-shirt with the words “Vogue love you mum.” It was created by her son at the age of eight, long before his mother worked for French Vogue and transformed it from a mélange of Parisian culture and fashion to what Ms. Roitfeld calls “erotic chic.” That was defined by sophisticated displays of flesh, like a Patrick Demarchelier photograph of a model wearing not much more than a lacy Breton hat, a pair of high-heeled boots and the inevitable Gallic accessory: a cigarette.

“It was a different era. Everybody smoked; we didn’t even know it was bad,” says Ms. Roitfeld, claiming that now that her partner has given up smoking, she will never again use a cigarette as an accessory.

Another picture in the 350 images on the 368 pages of “Irreverent” is of a Tom Ford for Yves Saint Laurent outfit consisting of a fur coat and fur boots worn over a swimsuit on a Los Angeles beach.

It was Ms. Roitfeld’s years styling Mario Testino images for Mr. Ford’s Gucci in the 1990s that brought her to the forefront of fashion. The louche glamour, with more than a hint of decadence, kicked “grunge” out of fashion and made history in terms of brand identity and visual daring.

Quote:
Today she charts major changes in that period, including the “editorialization” of advertising imagery and the use of handbags on the runway, starting a decade-long craze for a seasonal “It” bag.

Olivier Zahm, the book’s curator and himself an inspirational editor at Purple magazine, calls the Gucci images “edgy chic and audacious glamour.” But he attributes Ms. Roitfeld’s increasingly high profile to more than her editorial skills.

“The Internet has changed the way the fashion system works,” he says. “Stylists from the fashion press, who used to be virtually unknown outside the industry, are nowadays as important in promoting fashion as the models they dress for magazines.”

Although Ms. Roitfeld is not an Internet enthusiast, she thinks that her strongly identifiable imagery and visual awareness might be suitable for introducing an online magazine. For this, her personal look would be an advantage, for she is a magnet to photographers who record her every appearance.

To Mr. Zahm, how Ms. Roitfeld wears the clothes is as important as the brands and labels that she chooses.

She herself says that she has a condensed wardrobe.

“I am not attached to things,” she says, although that presumably excludes all the letters and cards of thanks from the world’s leading designers, which she claims to have thrown nonchalantly in a drawer and are reproduced in the book. (The less-favorable comments, she admits, were not kept.)

“In my wardrobe, I have Galliano dresses that are 18 years old and a few cult things,” says Ms. Roitfeld, who is 57. “There is always the same length of skirt. My silhouette has not changed, my body stayed young. But you still have to change — there is nothing more vulgar than a woman who dresses inappropriately for her age.”

In her spare style, Ms. Roitfeld is Parisian, a type that tends to grow old gracefully — or in her case, maybe “disgracefully.” But the fashion world certainly believes that this book will not be her last word, and looks forward to the next chapter.
