The editor of CR Fashion Book sat down with the September issue of Harper's Bazaar to discuss her much-anticipated magazine, being the face of M.A.C., and that time she hurt Tom Ford when she walked across his back while wearing high heels. Also of note: Roitfeld told Anamaria Wilson that she hasn't looked at French Vogue since her departure last year, explaining, "It's like a divorce in a way. It's still very fresh; it's still very like my baby for 10 years. I prefer to take a big distance; maybe next year it will be finished. I don't do the magazine because I want revenge — you say, revenge?"

Speaking of spite, Roitfeld addressed her enviable figure, saying she doesn't have a large appetite and is trying "to be in shape to be a young grandma."

She has taken up ballet, which she says has significantly altered her shape, specifically her derriere — she's quick to attest to its "lifting" benefit. "Normally, everything starts to go down, but that goes up. I had to give all my skirts to the seamstress, and she had to add five centimeters. That's a lot."

By "a lot," we're assuming she's referring to the amount of skirts.
