Carine Roitfeld on French Vogue at 90 years old: "[W]hat I can see is that now, the censoring is bigger than it was 20, 30 or 40 years ago. I think we have less freedom. Today some pictures would not even be publishable. It’s not just about the nudity, but when you talk about things politically, the military, kids, it would all be politically incorrect and not publishable today ... we have to fight to keep this un-politically correct attitude of French Vogue, but it’s more and more difficult to be able [to] do that. You cannot smoke, you cannot show arms, you cannot show little girls, because everyone now is very anxious not to have problems with the law. Everything we do now is like walking in high heels on the ice, but we keep trying to do it." [On the Runway/NYT]
