Perfect Imperfections

I think that something needs to be weird in order to have a real beauty- CR
The upcoming sixth CR Fashion Book will be out March 5 but let's discuss the cover for a second...

Carine Roitfeld, the 60-year-old former Vogue Paris EIC,  didn't get to where she is by following the beaten path. Ever since I watched her documentary on Netflix she's become one of my girl crushes. She's been with her partner for 30+ years, they  have two seemingly grounded kids and she's made quite a name for herself in the dog-eat-dog fashion world. Despite her success, most people outside the fashion  world have no idea who she is- she doesn't have the name recognition of Anna Wintour but she has arguably equal success.

While Vogue is very particular about who makes the cover (not much diversity there) it's refreshing to see a girl with braces on the cover of a major fashion publication. When Photoshopped images are the default for publications, I love that she went with something atypical. This may not be the most groundbreaking cover, but I think it's a step in the right direction.
