Carine Roitfeld Styling For Harper’s Bazaar: Gorgeous Models & Wild Beasts

  • Pin it

Carine Roitfeld, as we all know, is a freelance stylist, touching any and every pictorial that is proposed to her. The latest is a specialist eye on the Pre Fall Collections in Harper’s Bazaar UK May 2013.

The pictorial is – to say the least – interesting. Irina Shayk, Kate Upton, Tilda Lindstam, Soo Joo Park, Senait Gidey photographed by Sebastian Faena in a natural setting mimicking old-fashioned beasts doctors in white court shoes and perfectly pouty faces and impeccable red manicures. Carine is feeding the male audience anything and everything it needs. And fashion on top of that!

Sure, she kept the clothes on the girls this time, but that’s not to say that wild fantasies weren’t served! Akki did the girls’ hair, Violette their makeup and Donna D. their nails. But although it’s very much in Carine’s style, the pictures would’ve highly benefited from some sepia tones and slight retro approach. Would’ve saved the obvious and turned towards artistic more than… well, what it is now. Then again, it’s Harper’s Bazaar, not Virgins’ Weekly…

White stilettos are still alive and well ana, especially if you are an Essex Girl.

..oh, right, England’s Jersey Shoe girls ;)
It’s a very just observation, which only confirms my suspicions, alas. Carine is more or less a Heidi Fleiss of fashion :( sad, sad, sad observation for fashion loving individuals like ourselves who have no financial/social interest in fashion. Uncle Terry is laughing in his checkered shirt :(
