For the latest issue of V magazine, Carine Roitfeld styled a shoot inspired by ... herself! As you may recall, the editor was a model during her teen years in Paris, although she has since dismissed the experience: "I wasn't a star ... I was just booked for junior magazines." But as a stylish girl from a bourgeois family, she obviously looked much cooler than the average 16-year-old — indeed, most of us would prefer to forget that era of our wardrobes.
For this editorial, shot by Sebastian Faena, she dressed a model in some teen staples, like a denim hat and Disney attire. "I was obsessed with Mickey and Minnie Mouse," she recalls. "There was a shop on Rue de Canettes in the 6th called Western House that imported everything from America, and I found my Disney pieces there."
