CR Fashion Book
Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld, Carine Roitfeld, Christian Restoin, and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld share in the festivities behind Carine Roitfeld’s official return to the magazine publishing world with CR Fashion Book.
Kate Upton’s ‘Rebirth’ editorial for Roitfeld’s new magazine isn’t only devoted to celebrating the style diva’s new role as grandmother. Carine Roitfeld has been reborn in her life post Vogue Paris.
Roitfeld is doing several things differently in her new magazine. All the ads are spreads, arranged alphabetically by brand named. There is no “front of book”, with all that information presented online. Issue One has 340 pages of content including an essay by Anne Hathaway about her fertility and a fashion feature on jewelry designer Elsa Peretti.
Roitfeld has long been an inspiration at AOC, and we’re thrilled to experience her voice and vision in this new publication. See Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book Tumblr blog. Read on for Kate Upton editorial and more on Roitfeld’s return to fashion media.

GlamTribale Philadelphia Debut
GlamTribale had a wonderful opening at Philadelphia’s Tribal Home this weekend. Our entire collection has been redesigned and upscaled to rave reviews. The website won’t be revamped for another two weeks, but we’ll be getting at it each day.
Sandra Albury was Anne’s first customer when she arrived for Thursday night’s party. The two got pretty carried away again on Friday night, with Anne snapping Sandra making nice to both the jewelry and African art.
