There are just so many ways Carine Roitfeld can say she loves fashion in "Mademoiselle C," a somewhat interesting documentary that brings us into the inner workings of a magazine, but harps a bit too much on her ideas of fashion and style.
A lively but exasperatingly incurious and obsequious work about Carine Roitfeld, the former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief who quit the Condé Nast empire in 2011 to start her own publication called CR Fashion Book.
Unfortunately, the film doesn't show its subject's creative process as much as that of her collaborators ...
For fashion junkies, Mademoiselle C will be like five September issues of Vogue all rolled into one.
As a distinctly not-insider ... I would have benefited more from a broader portrait of the woman herself, and how she became such a legend.
As vanity projects go, this one's unusually well-made - as any portrait of an iconic stylist ought to be.
...hard to follow, relatively incoherent,...she is shown as a peripatetic presence, with seeming indefatigable energy. But she talks so much during the first hour that it becomes enormously annoying...
It's a film which treats its audience like beggars wallowing in the gutter.
High in gloss if not necessary insight, this is manna for fashion fans but a marginally slighter piece of work than The September Issue.
Fantastic access, if minimal drama.
Fabien Constant's doc about ultimate fashionista Carine Roitfeld will be catnip to the style-obsessed, while definitely showing that a lot of hard work goes into those all glossy images one carelessly flips through.
It's to Carine Roitfeld's own credit and director Fabien Constant's funky and frenetic pacing that the doc feels neither like a corporate hagiography nor like mere fashionista masturbation material.
