She’s had more of an impact upon fashion than most, but when it comes to curating her own wardrobe how does Carine Roitfeld do it?
While explaining to The Guardian that a person’s wardrobe should be appropriate (or as she puts it, “you must never share your wardrobe with your daughter… You have to wear something for your age or you will look really ridiculous.”), Roitfeld had this to say:
You have to look every five years at your wardrobe and say: “Is it OK to wear this with my legs? Is it OK to wear sleeveless with my arms?’ Then you have a cull. It’s not nice but you have to do it.
Roitfeld’s comment comes as a part of her promotional work for her Carine Roitfeld: Irreverent book.
