Thank You, Carine!


When Carine Roitfeld looks this awful, I can only feel great! I’m pretty sure we’re the same age, and I’m sick of being envious. You go and look wrinkly, Carine! And wear more stupid get-ups like this one!

(Nope, it’s not Halloween in this picture, it’s an art opening in NYC “curated” by her son Vladimer.)

    Her son doesn’t look too young and daisy-fresh either!

  2. Sister Wolf says:

    Juri, I’ve missed you!!! Her son is a troll!

  3. Juri says:

    A troll with a horrible handbag! I’ve missed you too! Life is so disgustingly busy these days, which is crap. I’d much better prefer being lazy like I was in the Summer.

    I was glad to hear things are getting better with your son. I hope you’ll get him out of there soon!

  4. Susan says:

    I applaud Carine for her lacy goth look – big knickers are not an easy look to pull off (for anyone) but she looks perfectly comfortable – and this is understandable, since she’s not the uneasy victim of a ridiculous restraining thong. Respect to anyone who wears exactly what they want and doesn’t give a damn.

    I don’t mind the lace so much as the face. No point padding your cheeks and chin with fresh ass-fat from a 12 year old Lithuanian supermodel if you have a neck like an alligator handbag.

  6. Susan says:

    How uncommonly refreshing to see a few wrinkles. This photo was obviously taken in the wrong light, at an unflattering angle – but what’s wrong with looking vaguely human (and better still, individual) … the botoxed/air-brushed look is so over.

  7. arline says:

    Her outfit kinda resembled my Catwoman costume, sans the mask.

  8. annemarie says:

    I agree with Susan! I think she looks happy and radiant. I think it’s a great image for women of a certain age with wrinkles. She’s a sexy bitch and a couple of wrinkles cannot deny it!

  9. Beck says:

    That’s not her son! That’s Jean Paul Gaultier. He may well be older than her!

  10. Stella Mayfair says:

    I love Carine. She’s incredible and can do no wrong whatsoever 🙂
    And I love her 54 year old face, too.

  11. Ann says:

    Applause for her boldness in wearing such an outfit, but that look is no good for me, sorry.

  12. Jill says:

    I’ve always thought she looked like a female Iggy Pop…but so do a lot of people.

  13. Vee says:

    Now that we are on the subject of fashion hilarity, I must tell you that I stumbled upon the name of “Tragic Fashion Boy” (from an old post of yours). Charles Guislain!
    His tiny, malnourished face just makes my day/terrifies me.
    And apparently he is only 16!

  14. Iron Chic says:

    This is exactly why I don’t let people take my photo….
    Beck: I do believe Juri’s comment was a joke.

  15. gretchen says:

    she was born in ’54….
    i thought you were MUCH younger….?

  16. andrea says:

    Aging is so fucked up now. She looks the way a woman in her 50s should look- wrinkly but doing the best with what she has. And you look even better than her (although I know you will disagree). Now that outfit, that’s another story. What was she thinking?

  17. Alicia says:

    That outfit is gross. It would be gross on anyone of any age…

  18. suzbee says:

    I am a huge fam of Carine Roitfeld. As a “woman of a certain age” myself, I enjoy her enjoyment of fashion and the fact that she does not box herself in by other people’s view of age-appropriate clothing, yet she always looks appropriate because she is true to herself. I am also fighting tooth and nail falling into the plastic surgery/cosmetic enhancements trap. Had to play Stalin with pictures from a recent trip (they were sent to the gulag) because caught from the wrong angle (almost any), I looked S.C.A.R.Y. So, wrinkle on, Carine. Wrinkle on. Wrinkle for all of us who fear wrinkling.

  19. Mia says:

    Carine Roitfeld looks awful ALL THE FREAKING TIME! I would steal some items from her wardrobe (though NOT this particular piece of lacy crap) but the face, oh…the face….no…sorry….not good at all! =_=

  20. sonja says:

    not crazy about the ensemble but she looks gorgeous. Hardly enough wrinkles to warrant a mention! Woman ‘of a certain age’ can’t win for losing it sounds like.

  21. Kate says:

    The outfit is sort of cute and Streisandish?

    I understand applauding Madame Roitfeld for her age-amnesia, or is it senility, but you know that woman looks down on any and everyone. She’s just Anna Wintour who maybe had sex a few more times and is therefore warmer. A color-me-beautiful crunchy Automne to Anna’s bitchfrost Winter. It is not her age, Frenchness, wealth or power that makes me hate her, it’s watching that CNN special of her where she makes a model in full couture regalia continually crack an egg in her gloved hand at a French livestock fair for some idiotic meat-market themed photoshoot. Oeuf!

    Her mean little troll soul makes Gaultier look pretty hot, though.

  22. Imelda Matt says:

    Ahhh…but she’s French and can do no wrong in my eyes. OMG Vee you’re fucking too much, “His tiny, malnourished face just makes my day/terrifies me”…LMAO

  23. I’m glad she’s got a mummy tummy that even those knickers can’t hide!

  24. Trashforce Reaper says:

    Actually, commenter upthread, this is her son:–thank-Carine-Roit.jpg

    Not as shabby, eh? Well, I mean he looks quite literally shabby in that picture, but still, y’know.

  25. Sister Wolf says:

    Susan – That mean I’d have to respect everyone with awful style, which I just can’t do.

    Sarah.P – That is sheer poetry!

    Susan – I get it! You’re going to disagree with every single thing I post!

    Arline – And the mask is the best part, right?

    annemarie – I just want her to not look younger than me, is that too much to ask??

    Beck – Duh, but thanks!

    Stella Mayfair – Well fine, but it’s important for me to gloat.

    Ann – Is she just trying to shock, a la Madge in the bunny ears??

    Jill – HAhahahaha, awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Vee – His mom is asking herself where she screwed up.

    Iron CHic – Oh come on, just don’t wrinkle up your neck like that!

    gretchen – Shit, and I thought she was 55.

    andrea – We can’t win either way, can we?

    ALicia – YES!!!!!!!

    suzbee – Let’s just make a pact not to fuck our lips up.

    Mia – Yay!

    sonja – Nope, we cannot win. I’m just a vengeful woman who’s past a certain age.

    Kate – We need to archive your comments.

    Imelda Matt – Hahahahha, I loved that too!

    Mad Do – Delightful!!!!

    Trashforce – I actually DO think Vlad is a troll. (“Why the long face?”) But his sister is a goddess.

  26. OMGGMAB says:

    Is that her son or her dad?

  27. Hahaha, “curated!”
