For one of her first high profile post-Vogue gigs, Carine Roitfeld was hired by Barneys New York to "style" their big fall catalogue, corralling her signature edgy-chic amalgam of models and style stars (her own children included) to be photographed by Mario Sorrenti wearing some of the store's finest offerings and presenting a perfect visual manifestation of Barneys' new creative strategy outlined in New York's fall fashion issue - that is, to make shopping at Barneys, whether online or in store, a coveted, high-end experience edited by and for those who love fashion and not just clothes.

I am not the only one, of course, looking forward to the upcoming coffee table book surveying her career thus far, Irreverent, out with Rizzoli on October 18 and benefiting amfAR.
