The world of Mademoiselle C is all about transition. It chronicles Carine Roitfeld‘s departure from one of fashion’s most prominent publications, Vogue Paris, to her seat at the head of namesake magazine CR Fashion Book. In the industry’s most talked-about documentary of the year, we get a rare glimpse of Roitfeld as the genteel maven of all things chic, who can remarkably make anyone feel at ease.
She has that je ne sais quoi that makes Tom Ford swoon, Karl Lagerfeld push baby strollers, and Donatella Versace laugh out loud. And in this exclusive clip from her upcoming documentary, Roitfeld warms up to Kanye West and has P. Diddy pleading for a collaboration with his artist (and rumored lady love), Cassie.
It’s a moment that not only shows how far Roitfeld’s influence has spread, but also how fashion breaks barriers. No matter what background or culture (high fashion or hip-hop, French or American), we can all talk style… and our adoration of Mademoiselle C.
Mademoiselle C, directed by Fabien Constant, will be released on September 11 (a perfect way to ease out of New York Fashion Week). Until then, share your thoughts on the exclusive #MadC clip above with @MadCFilm.
