Julia Restoin-Roitfeld: French Fatale

Being the daughter of former French Vogue Editor in Chief Carine Roitfeld means that le chic runs through your veins and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld has carved a niche for herself as the French girl who won over New York. The graphic designer has modeled for Tom Ford and was just named the face of Lancôme, with ads shot by family pal Mario Testino. A graduate of Parsons School of Design, Roitfeld walked in Tom Ford’s super secret, celebrity-studded women’s fashion show alongside Beyoncé and Julianne Moore. “The outfit was designed for me, made to measure, and looked amazing. I got to wear it for only 10 minutes. As soon as I was done with my walk, I had to strip out of it and give it away—what a big, quick and amazing moment.” Roitfeld remains close with her brother Vladimir, a gallerist, and her mother, who she looks up to. “She manages to be sensual and sexy, yet always elegant.” Julia is definitely a chip off the block.
