This just in: Carine Roitfeld may, on occasion, wear Topshop and Urban Outfitters under her fabulous white shag coats. (Not that we've ever witnessed such a thing.) But you can rest assured that the French Vogue editrix doesn't buy the cheap stuff herself. At an April 1 dinner at Balthazar to celebrate the launch of Topshop's stateside flagship, Carine's daughter, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld admitted, "I don't think [my mom's] been in Topshop, but maybe when her assistants shop in Topshop for themselves and they see something my mom would like they would get it for her." Julia, whom we've spotted in cute finds from Urban Outfitters, says she wouldn't even attempt to take her mom to a store like that, but that Carine sometimes requests cheap clothes off her daughter's back. "She would see me, for example, with this jacket, which is Topshop, and she'd be like, 'Oh my god, I love your jacket! Where is it from?' And then she'd be like, 'Oh, okay. Can you go get me the same?' That's how it would work. She doesn't have time to shop. She's too busy. So if she sees something she likes on me, she kind of sends me to get it."
Lucky for Carine, her daughter doesn't have universally expensive taste. "I don't like the look of wearing all expensive clothes," she said. "I like expensive stuff not for the price or the name but maybe because I like the design better." Julia says she wouldn't necessarily wear Topshop to the Met, like Kate Moss did, in bold and product-placement-y fashion a few years ago. "I would wear it more to casual than fancy parties," she said. "But for going out at night to clubs, it's perfect."
