Can you ever get too much Carine Roitfeld? Not if she has anything to do with it. Since her February departure as editor in chief of Paris Vogue, the French powerhouse has worked with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson, and Mario Sorrenti for Barneys’ upcoming catalog and advertising campaign (she’s even a model in it), all while working on her forthcoming 400-page tome and a 72-page cover story for V magazine‘s heroes-themed September issue.
“The theme is Elizabeth Taylor, trying to capture her glamour and her mystery in fashion shoots,” V‘s Stephen Gan tells Style.com.
Roitfeld, who collaborated with her close friend Mario Testino on the project, told Style.com about their huge undertaking months ago in New York before jetting off to London and Paris for the rest of the shoot.
