The incomparable Carine Roitfeld, editor of French Vogue and her December guest editor and photographer Tom Ford have produced what will be one of the most talked about editorials of the decade. Clarissa and Doug brings a crowbar to idea that old people don’t feel sexual desire.
There is no Photoshop, no airbrushing. The skin is exactly that of a hot and sexy, aristocratic woman with a 17 BMI all her life. We see wrinkles and age spots and torrid sexual desire, mixed in with what must be some of the world’s most expensive jewels — or fabulous fakes.
This editorial is amazing and puts the Crystal Renn plastic surgery cougar editorial in a context that we will now write about. Until seeing Clarissa and Doug, we weren’t sure where Ford and Roitfeld were headed.
You can love it or hate it, but Carine Roitfeld has exceeded her reputation for being the most daring, talented, controversial, visionary editor of a major fashion magazine. We find her brilliant beyond compare. As for Tom Ford, we have always love him as an evolutionary guy to whom sensuality is core to identity.
