Mademoiselle C Reviews

April 15, 2019
Constant has resigned from constructing anything resembling a narrative arc with Mademoiselle C. It's so anecdotal that it feels like a music video highlight reel of the lives of fashion moguls.

...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...

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.
September 19, 2013
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 ...

It's a film which treats its audience like beggars wallowing in the gutter.

For fashion junkies, Mademoiselle C will be like five September issues of Vogue all rolled into one.

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.

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.

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.

As vanity projects go, this one's unusually well-made - as any portrait of an iconic stylist ought to be.
September 11, 2013
Roitfeld seems constantly inspired by the prospect of pushing boundaries and expectations, and that, in turn, is inspiring to watch.
September 11, 2013
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.
September 11, 2013
Mademoiselle C succeeds in showcasing the rarified entity that is Carine Roitfeld...but it's ultimately more of a fawning love letter than a nuanced profile of a woman who surely must be more fascinating than she comes off here.

You never learn why, exactly, she deserves a feature-length portrait. "Maybe people will get sick of me," Roitfeld muses. A little more than 90 minutes should do the trick.

Instead of giving the viewer the satisfaction of watching a movie, this charming collection of incidents feels like flipping through a magazine with amusing Franglais quotations pulled.
