Carine Roitfeld's new magazine spawns a documentary
Her new magazine may not have even launched yet and all ready there is talk of a documentary to be based on Carine Roitfeld's latest publishing project. The documentary, which is believed to be shooting right now, will offer viewers an insight into how the former French Vogue editor is putting together her new glossy called CR Fashion Book.
The footage which follows the production of the magazine from its early stages to the launch date will be turned into a documentary titled Mademoiselle C. According to reports, Roitfeld has given director Fabien Constant "unprecedented access" to her life throughout the past few months (sounds like great fodder for a reality TV show, huh?) and will be shopping the doco around at Cannes Film Festival which starts next week. This isn't the first time that the pair have worked together. Last year Constant was in charge of filming her appointments during Paris Couture Week for a short film which was created for W magazine.
While the English-printed CR Fashion Book is set to début in September, there is as yet no official release date for the film. However it has so far generated a lot of buzz thanks to interviews with fashion identities including Tom Ford, Karl Lagerfeld and Donatella Versace amongst others. Roitfeld's magazine s expected to be almost 300 pages long with a $9.95 cover price.
