Format: DVD
"Mademoiselle C." (2013 release from France; 92 min.) is a documentary about French fashion editor Carine Roitfeld. As the documentary opens, we are in August, 2012, where we learn that Carine is working feverishly to launch a new magazine called "CR Fashion Book". The documentary then goes back to late, 2011, with an announcement from Vodue Paris that Roitfeld is leaving after a 10 year stint as editor-in-chief, to pursue "personal projects". The documentary is a mix of both a personal view/impression of Carine Roitfeld, and the efforts to launch a brand new magazine in the span of about 6-7 months. In that regard, this documentary can be described as "Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel" meets "The September Issue" (although Roitfeld is NOT Diane Vreeland, let's be clear about that).

Couple of comments: writer-director Fabien Constant was given unparalleled access to his subject matter, without any visible restrictions. I don't know whether it was a conscious decision, but the documentary spends just a few fleeting moments on Carine's past, as a result of which we don't get to understand how this woman arrived to this particular moment in her life. Nor are we any the wiser what exactly happened for her to walk away (or to be pushed out?) at Vogue Paris. The movie does a much better job documenting the challenges of launching a new magazine, and in fact the last 30-40 min. are entirely focused on that, and are for me the most compelling part of this documentary. A big negative throughout the documentary for me is the incessant name-dropping. Kanye West! Donatella Versace! Kate Upton! Scarlett Johansson! Stef Van der Laan! and on and on, it just never stops.

A dull film with very little insight into Mademoiselle C, the business of fashion, creativity, design or magazine publishing. It's just one long, boring advertisement for a magazine.

A Valentine to Ms. Roitfeld and one this does not shed much insight into her as a person, but rather the persona she has created for herself. Also, the same narrow group of people are interviewed repeatedly which reinforce this persona.

“Mademoiselle C” is a documentary about Carine Roitfeld, who ran French Vogue for ten years, building a reputation as one of the fashion world’s most significant influences. Her inner circle includes Donatella Versace, Tom Ford, Karl Lagerfeld, Diane von Furstenberg, and Alexander Wang.

The movie chronicles Roitfeld’s launch of her own magazine, CR Fashion Book, and gives a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of her professional and personal lives. We observe major transitions as she moves to New York, starts a new business, and prepares to become a grandmother.

On display are the models, celebrities, and eccentric personalities who make the fashion world so colorful and captivating. Featured are Sarah Jessica Parker, photographer Bruce Weber, supermodels Kate Upton, Linda Evangelista, and Stephanie Seymour, as well as designers Ford, von Furstenberg, Lagerfeld, and Jean Paul Gaultier.

Bonus extras on the Blu-ray release include footage from the Paris premiere.

I love this video because it shows us what Carine really is, she is an intelligent woman, she knows what she wants and where she is heading, for someone to say no to vogue and start doing her own business that is huge, she took risks and it payed, and on top of that she is an accomplished grandmother and has a stable relationship. This video help us to understand that what you have a project in mind, follow your gut and just do it.

There are a number of great docos on the fashion industry; 'Diana Vreeland:The Eye Has To Travel,' 'Valentino, The Last Emperor,' 'The September Issue,' and the upcoming 'Dior and I' But this isn't one of them. Frankly, the unappetising 'Mademoiselle C,' fashion guru or not, is a vacuous, opinionated bore, who seems badly in need of a good hairdresser and a bath. She's just not in the least bit interesting. And neither is her family, the awful people who surround her, or the film. Anna Wintour, Valentino and the wonderful Diana Vreeland were, and are, towering figures in the fashion business.This woman isn't in the race, sorry.
