On the Street....Carine in Black & White, Milano

Comments on "On the Street....Carine in Black & White, Milano"


Blogger Teresa @ good-grace said ... (9:35 AM) : 

hot damn! sexy! especially drawn to the last image... the light neutrals, gorgeous hair and the shades...


Blogger pink avenue said ... (9:36 AM) : 

impossibly glamorous...guess that must come with being french!


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:37 AM) : 

Those heels are so sexy! European chic is so simple and sexy. Less is best. No scarves or over draping of accessories.


Blogger Cristi Silva said ... (9:38 AM) : 

These women are awesome!


Anonymous Lucia said ... (9:39 AM) : 

Those two ladies ROCKS!!!!
Personally I like E.Alt more, but that's just because she dresses in a style I find really really cool and appealing, and much easier to approach. Carine is so funny cos she dresses like a lady, Femme Fatale, and she is SO feminine, but combined with her rock'n roll hair and poses it just makes her style untouchable in a way. I love it when you put ladies here, not only young girls..! Thanks Scott, you're doing a fabulous job.


Blogger Mocchachica said ... (9:41 AM) : 

Goshdarnit, how cool are they?! I want to be Carine Roitfeld when I grow up!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:45 AM) : 

Is that the same dress in white and black? Also, a smile wouldn't kill her, would it?


Blogger Ditte, Dorte, Julie og Jeppe said ... (9:46 AM) : 

love the shoes in the first picture.. classic but with a small twist


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:47 AM) : 

It's amazing to see beautiful women who are confident of herselves!


Blogger Carriedav said ... (9:50 AM) : 

Her stance makes me laugh. I get it, but it's still funny.

Oh I don't know who I prefer, they're both so stylish!


Blogger Filipe said ... (9:53 AM) : 

I'm obsessed with the other lady’s leather jeans. How DID she get into them? Vaseline?


Anonymous Oonagh said ... (9:53 AM) : 

I like the white better.
Same necklace, different lengths, different looks, interesting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:56 AM) : 

What a pose Carine strikes in the first pic...bit scary :(


Blogger Alicja said ... (10:05 AM) : 

I like both versions. Both stylish.Personaly, I'm worried about her foots on fist pic. I'm not so brave to wear that shoes ;)


Blogger theartbox said ... (10:05 AM) : 

I love Carine!

Blogger Bell said ... (10:06 AM) :

Blogger kahartland said ... (10:10 AM) :

Blogger Couture Coco said ... (10:10 AM) : 

LOVE both looks - I've seen Carine's black choes before - totally glamorous and timeless.
Amazing how clean and simple everything is but the impact is to the MAX!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:23 AM) : 

How interesting you chose "Black and White" as your caption!


Blogger Simo said ... (10:24 AM) : 

She do have a style

But with a LITTLE smile on her face she will be more pretty i think, OUI ou NON?


Blogger Claudia said ... (10:25 AM) : 

I'm sure it would be a lot prettier if she smiled.


Anonymous Maëlle said ... (10:26 AM) : 

Just want to say: "Mais arrête de faire la gueule, Carine!"


Blogger A single working girl seeking free time said ... (10:36 AM) : 

The blond is so long! It is a very classy and clean contrast she makes by pairing the horizontal pleats in her skirt/dress with the length of her legs. Wonderful!


Blogger Antonio Barros said ... (10:40 AM) : 

Carine is always perfect!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 AM) : 

So... smiling is out this season?


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Her style is flawless and elegant and yet somehow fails to engage me; her body language is so stiff and unapproachable that I feel like I'm looking at a mannequin. Reminds me of Victoria Beckham...


Anonymous elizar, Philippines said ... (10:48 AM) : 

great shots! the lighting at the first one is superb


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:48 AM) : 

More E. Alt, please! She's like a wonderful palette cleansing sorbet in a world of fug


Blogger Suzanne said ... (10:49 AM) : 

too much style
they look like my mothers friends
absolutely gorgeous shoes
Id saw her wearing this;;;


Blogger Singapore Short Stories said ... (10:53 AM) : 

She's in fashion !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:15 AM) : 

Kim Deal and Iggy Pop.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:15 AM) : 

The clothes and shoes are great, they both also have awesome bodies, but they look harsh! They need a touch of make-up and maybe new hair styles.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:19 AM) : 

god I love her too much!


Blogger Alina said ... (11:19 AM) : 

great style!


Blogger The Chukker said ... (11:23 AM) : 

Oh Carine, Carine...since the days she was a stylist until now, what a career! And always gorgeous.
To look stunning without interruptions is a full time job really...think about it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:27 AM) : 

I don't know who Carine is, but she could take herself a little less seriously..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:32 AM) : 

Sexy, strong, powerfull...


Anonymous Angie said ... (11:34 AM) : 

T-straps are the absolute sexiest shoes in the world. Elegant, a little innocent and totally hot.


Blogger LIO said ... (11:34 AM) : 

more information on the leather pleeeeeeze. E Alt is too cool for school.


Anonymous grizzlesnort said ... (11:36 AM) : 

I love a woman who knows how to scowl.

gorgeous photos. I love the shoes... and the white blazer is stunning.

GREAT photos!

When are you coming to South Florida for a book signing??!?!

Emmanuelle Alt and Carine Roitfeld both look so glamorous!

Raw power. Total lust for life.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:50 AM) : 

that girl a the left at the picture above is really hot!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:53 AM) : 

Love the way that the clothes make a statement yet they are so effortless in the styling. Love that the hair is so "not" styled almost grungy. the lighting in the first picture trips me out, I can almost smell the Italian air. Just perfect!


Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (11:56 AM) : 

they look like rock stars

like how the stones look nowadays


Blogger beths said ... (11:57 AM) : 

And no one ever tells Carine she's too old to wear anything! Keep it up!


Blogger ingefaer said ... (12:04 PM) : 

Fierce and sexy!
Love the nude shoes on those amazing legs.


Blogger Triin said ... (12:12 PM) : 

Interesting captures! She has her pluses and minuses, but the minuses just make her stronger!

E. Alt is fantastic.

Carine is so cool!!! I alwyas love her style ... we are wiating for you to sign your book in Santiago Chile ...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:43 PM) : 

They are both so freaking fabulous, it's almost painful. If women could all look like this, I'd be all for cloning.

The best thing of all is that they are so not into handbags.


Blogger Antz said ... (1:47 PM) : 

Like it alot


Blogger Percy B said ... (2:12 PM) : 

SOMEbody has a signature pose....


Anonymous dot said ... (2:29 PM) : 

I was wondering if anyone else noticed! Percy B, whoever you are, I came to comment the same thing, and you beat me to it (yours happens to be the last comment at the moment I"m posting).

There's something almost touchingly 'little girl' about the editor of Paris Vogue having a signature pose: it's like she's practiced it in the mirror. It's uncanny that you caught it in black, and then white.

It goes without saying, both women look SO RAD!!


Blogger test said ... (2:30 PM) : 

she's fierce and has amazing legs for her age-it's a compliment not a criticism,many ladies over 40 would like to have them ;)

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:23 PM) : 

Eeek! How can you not mention Emmanuelle Alt in this post?!

She's one of my fashion idols! Consistent style.



Blogger CW said ... (3:27 PM) : 

Love both photos


Blogger Amalia said ... (3:43 PM) : 

Carine is missing her smile. Leave the poker face to Posh Carine, you look radiant when you smile.


Blogger Gigi said ... (4:07 PM) : 

Love how the pic and the outfit are so simple. The shoes are amazing, quite cool that she hasn't let anything pop out, no accent color, monochrome and tone to tone - yet we still notice her and love her ;-


Blogger charlotte said ... (4:43 PM) : 

wow. she's looking like ready to kill the first one, who dares to touch her dress...


Blogger Siru said ... (5:03 PM) : 

Carine does have an amazing smile. Though she's the fashion goddes, she'll do what she wants!

Yikes! These women have beautiful clothes, but they look like they could (and would) beat me up.


Blogger Angeles Almuna said ... (5:58 PM) : 

Powerful women, that all!


Blogger Kelly Walker said ... (6:27 PM) : 

beautiful outfits, but i would love them a lot more if i didn't feel like she hated me with that glare...

can't wait to see you in SF tomorrow!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:50 PM) : 

Dude, the second one...what a shot. Love the minimalism of the bare concrete wall. Concrete - the ultimate building material invented by us Italians. But I digress...

She is reminiscent of a well dressed agent, international spy, personal minder whose lethal capabilities are only betrayed by her very feminine disposition. The type of woman you can't help but gravitate towards regardless of the nagging voice in the back of your skull which tells you she's going to strangle you with her bra or acquaint you intimately with the dense qualities of the wall.

Dangerous, gorgeous, lethal, feminine. Like a moth to the flame Purely for the challenge, I would stand no chance.



Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (6:51 PM) : 

Wow . . . they are both looking fierce -- literally and figuratively.


Blogger Nick Leonard said ... (7:09 PM) : 

Excellent shots.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (7:21 PM) : 

The first picture is the first and the last picture (probably ever) in the existence of internet where two older ladies are depicted as extremely sexy human species.

This one should be the backcover of your book VOLUME II.


Anonymous Nan said ... (7:46 PM) : 

She is bad to the bone, as they say. The incredible clothes and accessories never wear her, she wears them. Love her!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:05 PM) : 

You can post Carine photos all day and I will never tire of them. A true fashion icon!

They are both major style icons. Love them!

IT'S ON! Carine versus Emmanuelle. Whose side are you on?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:04 AM) : 

Carine outdoubtedly has great style, but I just want to give her a little tickle so that she looks even slightly less p@ssed off.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:54 AM) : 

Smile!! It goes a long way!

I've never seen a photo of Alt in a skirt. Is there one?

Carine looks so good in her black Alaia outfit.

>>> the best accessory for this lady would be a SMILE!!! <<<

I loooooove that white blazer!!!!!!!!

these outfits are amazing and make me miss living in italy!!

gah - I hope i age like Carine!

First thing I saw was Iggy Pop.

She looks so...fierce and unfriendly. But stylish!


Blogger Alyssa said ... (11:00 AM) : 

Love the huge difference between C's pose for you here, and her much softer aspect over on Garance's blog. Context is everything.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:53 PM) : 

I Love the shoes.

Cheers from Paris


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:47 PM) : 

Two weathered look ladies that do not appear to be complement their tragically boring outfits.


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (8:01 PM) : 

The gladiator heels and tight leather pants on the woman on the left in the first picture are memorable. The other woman is trying too hard.


Blogger andrea said ... (2:02 AM) : 

it should be taught, how to BE the way she IS....


Blogger Marianna said ... (5:34 AM) : 

Carine is def one of my faves- even more then Giovanna or Anna or whoever else. She is always classy and feminine. I absolutely love her style.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:55 AM) : 

She's so chic and sexy ! She makes me proud to be Parisian !


Blogger rebecca joy said ... (2:53 PM) : 

This looks like Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox in 15 years. Hot, but not exactly fresh.

Blogger Joy Mars said ... (4:06 AM) : 

So this Carine chick is the Anna Wintour of France? Or is it the other way around?

Or maybe she's the Anna de la Russo of France. Yeah, that's more like it. They kind of resemble each other.

Very nice!Especially the shoes..!Although I don't wish to see my mom in these. =p


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:33 PM) : 

I don't think she needs to smile. I do think she needs to soften, just a little. I would love to see her stop clenching and open her posture. Calm power is a creative sexiness that doesn't need to smile or flinch.


Blogger vinda s said ... (10:51 AM) : 

i have always loved carine roitfeld. she is absolutely gorgeous.


Blogger SparkleQueen said ... (4:58 PM) :

A sexy woman indeed - but the perils of ageing indicate her hemline needs to come down somewhat.

oh carine you always look so bored,so almost cranky, is fashion all too much for you i never think you inhabit the fashion and that 'm afraid is the secret to style and iconic glamour ,just look at mr cary grant and perharps tilda swinton.

ok, she has got money and power, and also good clothes, but...she looks ugly and sad...


Anonymous R. said ... (7:20 PM) : 

Alt looks great as ever, but slightly more glamorous than I'm used to?
And Roitfeld is the sharpest editor-in-chief around, definitely


Anonymous groovergreen said ... (1:57 AM) : 

Just hilarious. If ever "Absolutely Fabulous" spawns a sixth series, these two must be signed immediately for cameo appearances.

Scott,you am amazing photographer, and a beautiful person, thank you for responding to my email.
Roitfeld & Alt look stunning!


Anonymous lisa said ... (7:35 PM) : 

You'd think that just being Carinne Roitfeld would give her something to smile about! Maybe the shoes pinch...
