My kind of Girl...That girl is fancy
Born September 19 19(it's not polite to reveal a woman's age) Paris France
Father a Russian film producer
Mother a "very classic Frenchwoman" (Carine Roitfeld)
At 18, Roitfeld began modeling, having been scouted on the street in Paris by a British photographer's assistant. She became a writer and then a stylist for French ELLE. While she was working as a freelance stylist, her daughter, Julia, was in a children's fashion shoot for Italian Vogue Bambini in 1990, photographed by Mario Testino. Roitfeld and Testino soon after began working as a team, doing advertising work as well as shoots for American and French Vogue. Roitfeld went on to work as a consultant and muse for Tom Ford at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent for six years.
