What a hilarious article. I enjoy her frankness though I don't see eye to eye on some of her style ideas. I enjoy her non perfect english (or maybe I'm just reading it that way?!)

Can We Please Get Some Carine Roitfeld Up in 4 Times Square?
READ MORE: International, Vogue, carine roitfeld, fashion, style, top
We’ll go ahead and say it: We’re absolutely in love with French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld. And not in the strangely fascinated way in which we proclaim ironic “love” for her American Vogue counterpart, Anna Wintour. No, what we feel for Roitfeld is pure, unjaded, dewdrop-sincere love.
Why the unbridled affection? Maybe it’s our usual Monday vulnerability, but our feelings are no doubt shaped by Roitfeld’s frank words on the fashion industry:
• “They have to sell bags, bags, bags, bags, bags, bags. I hate handbags.”
[Translation: I don’t give a **** about about Marc Jacobs’ quilted Stella bag.]
• “Maybe if you write it, they send me some [pants]. You never know. My size is small.”
[Translation: I’m adorably shameless.]
• “Botox? No. I don’t like Botox. It makes a very strange forehead.”
[Translation: I fear Nicole Kidman.]
• “Every day you have to think you are a soldier. It’s true. Always have to fight. I’m fighting to keep a level to the magazine.”
[Translation: Reese Witherspoon does not belong on my cover.]
• On why she doesn’t wear fur: “Because it has a smell.”
[Translation: It’s not about PETA.]
• On being shy: “I keep my hair down as my protection. With a drink it is better. I am very fun after one glass of vodka. I am more beautiful, too.”
[Translation: I’m just a normal drunk!]
• And, on Anna Wintour: “She taught me a lot. Maybe she think I go up too much, I don’t know… I want good relations with her. But…”
[Translation: I’m just as afraid of her as you are.]

She is just magic. Like mixing asphalt with silk... so contradictory and odd.
When you talk to her it feels like suddenly you are the muse and she devorates you with huge apetit. I love the way she loves oxymorons. A hideous princess behind a strong mask of khol...

Anyone have any scans of magazine interviews with Carine?---I love reading about her. I think I've only once seen her in pants. Carine has made me love YSL---Does anyone have any ideas of which denim tatty handbag she has (I don't remember seeing denim by ysl), as it said in the article that was posted by Stephiev? Thanks

I read an interveiw once where the asked her what she thought about Anna Wintour and I can't rember the quote exactly but she said something like, "She is very nice. And very busy." and that was it. I loved it. The reported said the undertone was that she wasn't a huge fan of her American couterpart!
