It’s looking like a slow news day with the Versace for H&M madness subsiding (or at least shifting to eBay) and Thanksgiving coming up, so we were psyched to find this Carine Roitfeld interview with the UK’s Guardian, published over the weekend. It’s another piece timed to the release of her new-ish book Irreverent (a lovely holiday gift!), and even though Carine has given tons of interviews to promote Irreverent, she never runs out of witty, charming and hilarious things to say.
In this interview, she advises women to dress their age and never ever borrow from their daughters closets:
As you get older, you must never share your wardrobe with your daughter. Never ever. You will never look beautiful in a jean jacket and a mini-skirt, even if you have a beautiful body. You have to wear something for your age or you will look really ridiculous. There are too many 50-year-olds dressing as 20-year-olds. You have to look every five years at your wardrobe and say: “Is it OK to wear this with my legs? Is it OK to wear sleeveless with my arms?’ Then you have a cull. It’s not nice but you have to do it.
It’s good advice. Click through for more highlights, including Carine’s thoughts on Twilight, her new magazine, and her habit of styling shoots with with scissors and meat.
