Is Carine Roitfeld’s Six Months Up

Bill Cunningham’s ‘On the Street’ column in Sunday’s New York Times, ‘Model Guests’, was all about the CFDA Awards, diplomatically capturing many of fashion’s most powerful people, including American Vogue’s Anna Wintour and French Vogue’s Carine Roitfeld, among them. Interestingly, while Roitfeld has been knighted fashion’s ‘it’ girl, making her one of the most closely watched figures whose clothing choices are constantly being observed, this was the only picture of fashion’s biggest icon. Neither WWD nor included her in their past week’s coverage of fashion’s ‘biggest’ night. Could it be that her prediction – as voiced to WWD – that “in six months I’ll be out of fashion”, has already come true?
