Carine has very few rules in fashion, but there's one she'll never break: "I hate mules. I hate the noise when someone walks with mules. Clomp, clomp, clomp. I think it’s very not chic. I don’t even like a flip-flop. I don’t like this noise. I don’t think I’ve used mules one time in a story." She's also taking a break from fur, but has less vehement feelings about it. "I like fur, but there’s a sort of smell on it that now I don’t like," she tells the Times. "But I can’t say I will never wear fur again because I will lie. Maybe tomorrow I’m going to see a beautiful mink coat, and I’ll really want it, even if there is some smell in it. I will put perfume on. Mules I’m sure I will never wear." [NYT]
