Life post-Vogue has been good for Carine Roitfeld - and good for us. Her attempt at diplomacy in interviews during her time at the French title has given way to refreshing frank anecdotes that would give Kaiser Karl a runner for his money and that's not an easy feat. Her recent comments in Eric Wilson's profile on her for The New York Times is a case in point. “If I look at the balance, maybe I lost some people I thought were my friends, but I made so many new friends," she explained when asked about the end of her friendship with Emmanuelle Alt. "I am very happy, in the end, because I am the winner.”
And it's true - Roitfeld has certainly come out on top since leaving the magazine. As well as her gig at Barneys and styling work for Chanel's campaigns, WWD confirm that she has guest edited VMan's spring issue, which is set to released on February 14.
As you would expect, Roitfeld pushed the boat in the issue by swapping male models for real people but naturally, all those chosen are all easy on the eye. “I like men trendy, but not fashion victims. It’s more effortless,” she told the magazine calling the images “very new for a men’s magazine".
