Last night at amfAR’s annual gala, Carine Roitfeld — wearing brand-new Givenchy couture — dropped hints that she’s got something serious brewing in Paris. Since announcing her resignation as editor of French Vogue in December, Roitfeld has been tight-lipped about what her next move might be, but she told us last night at the amfAR gala that she has something planned. "I have a new project, and I’m just coming here for this event because I’m working with amfAR and it’s very important for me to be here tonight. Tomorrow my son has an art show. And I have a book that was very late to finish with Rizzoli," explained Roitfeld, who will not attend New York Fashion Week. "And [Saturday] I have to go back to Paris." She’s "too superstitious" to discuss the details of this project, which is "in fashion, of course," but promised to reveal more "in one month."
She spent the night flanked by her stylish children, Vladimir and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, who also refused to spill their mother’s secret. “We talk about everything together,” said Julia, wearing a Louis Vuitton gown.
Tomorrow, the family ought to continue to keep mum at the RETNA show that Vladimir is curating at the 560 Washington Street gallery.
