A must C!



Fashion doyenne, lover, friend, mother, grandmother, ballerina, dreamer, storyteller and rebel – Carine Roitfeld is all of these.

The former French Vogue editor-in-chief, and now global fashion director for Harper’s Bazaar features in the documentary Mademoiselle C, as part of this year’s Alliance Française French Film Festival.

The film documents Carine’s journey as she sets out on her own to launch her new magazine CR Fashion Book in New York and embodies all the quintessential French qualities of elegance, joie de vivre, and je ne sais quoi.


Tickets cost $30 and include a L’Oréal Paris gift bag, glass of bubbles

and the luxury of being pampered at the L’Oréal Paris beauty station.

Pushing the normal boundaries of fashion and experimenting with themes of death, birth, fantasy and religion, Carine’s dark-browed charm and allure is captured on camera.

As bold on the fashion front as she is conservative with her skirt length, follow this career-driven former model as she rubs shoulders with fashion’s heavyweights from Tom Ford, Karl Lagerfeld, Donatella Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier and Giorgio Armani to celebs such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West, James Franco, Kirsten Dunst, Rooney Mara and Cassie.

Raw, candid, fast and edgy, the documentary offers a glimpse of the dizzyingly dynamic world of fashion.

There will be six special charity screenings of another French Film Festival entry, Bright Days Ahead, around the country with all proceeds going to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation for the benefit of New Zealand women.


The 2014 Alliance Française French Film Festival started on February 20 and runs until April 23 at selected screens nationwide. Visit the website for more information and session times.
