I had the chance to shoot Carine Roitfeld for a Japanese magazine. We had a meeting in a cafe near Place de la Bourse, it was during the Paris fashion week tsunami, between 2 shows (insane!), and I had not more than 7 minutes to shoot her (even more insane!). Would you like to know the truth? I was over excited by meeting this woman, I would even say over impressed… She represents everything I like in fashion : a creative free spirit but embodied in a very normal life. We all know she has 2 kids, the same man for more then 30 years, she is a bourgeoise from the 7th arrondissement but who can dive into provocation in a snap of a finger. Yes this is why I love you so much madame Roitfeld! Please, don’t change anything! Fashion needs you.
