Quote of Note | Carine Roitfeld

mlle c“I’m not obsessed with myself….But as a woman, you want to look good in pictures. When I go to the shows, I try to smile. It makes you more beautiful and I think the photographers are nicer to you if you try to make their work easier. At the show, the photographers know you. They call you by name. You get very close to them. One time I was coming out of Marc Jacobs and I missed one step, and I fell but no one took a picture. That’s chic. It’s maybe because I was nice with them, too. I think it’s better to make your relationships with them nice. I will never forget this.”
