According to the fabulous Catwalk Queen, "Wintour might be the most famous editor of Vogue but true fashion mavens love French Vogue's Carine Roitfeld for her innovative photoshoots and forward-thinking fashion sense." How true. While the American editor is always impeccable & appropriate, she seems to have more in common with the models that grace the pages of her magazine: being about the clothes and the labels instead of the personality inside them. Carine Roitfeld, however, is the object of many a (fashion) girl crush because of her sense of style savvy. She possesses that Kate Moss-like ability to take a plastic garbage bag, tweak it, add the right accessories and look great. Roitfeld epitomizes what the truly stylish love best about fashion: that it's a fun form of authentic self expression.
Clothes may make the (wo)man, but without the safety of head-to-toe labels, would Wintour still be chic?
