About Author

Carine Roitfeld (born 19 September 1954) is the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, a position she held from 2001 to 31 January 2011. A former fashion model and writer, she announced her resignation on 17 December 2010 and was succeeded by Emmanuelle Alt. In 2012, she became founder and editor-in-chief of CR Fashion Book.

Her father, Jacques Roitfeld (1889–1999, Яков Ройтфельд), a Russian émigré, was a film producer before he moved to Paris and met her mother. Carine Roitfeld describes her mother as a "very classic Frenchwoman"; her father as her "idol", adding that "he was always away, filming, at Cannes"; and her upbringing in the upscale 16th arrondissement of Paris as "very bourgeois. I'm not saying we were in diamonds, but very, very comfortable".

Roitfeld was born in Paris, France. Roitfeld and partner Christian Restoin have been together for three decades or so, though they are not married. Restoin was the creator of the Equipment clothing line, which he closed in 2001 after Roitfeld accepted the Vogue editorship. The couple have two children, Julia Restoin Roitfeld who was born on 12 November 1980 and Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld born in December 1984. Both were born in Paris...
