Carine Roitfeld might have been black balled when she stopped working for Vogue and Conde Nast but she has not let that stop her! Long time friends and professional contacts were not allowed to work with her on projects outside of Vogue. Her friend Mario Testino was one of the photographers not allowed, due to contractual legalities, to work with her. Well payback is a bitch, and Roitfeld is on top!
The former Editor-in-chief of French Vogue is now on Issue 5 of her successful and innovative CR Fashion Book and Beyonce is the latest cover star. The music icon looks amazing in original looks, and the two ladies collaborated with Riccardo Tisci for the photo shoot. Beyonce was styled in Comme de Garcons, Saint Laurent, Prada, and Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy!
Beyonce looks great and the styling is original and fabulous, but Beyonce isn’t the news. The real news is that Roitfeld is landing major talent for covers and editorials for the new Fashion Book. This is only issue 5 and the CR Fashion Book is making major waves in the fashion world. A week or so ago, I reported on how the CR Fashion Book shot a spread starring drag queen Conchita Wurst shot by Karl Lagerfeld. If Roitfeld keeps this up, leaving Vogue and Conde Nast will be the best thing she ever did. The world looks forward to seeing all the other major stars that will grace the new publication’s cover. The full spread is below. Anna Wintour might have trouble on her hand.
