Carine Roitfeld's Barneys Lookbook For Less
Sep 20, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
While she is no longer the editrice of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld is still turning it out, now on her own terms. In her latest project, she styled the Barneys lookbook, gathering a collection of werqing women that move her, and dressed them in that way that made French Vogue so epic. Here, we've taken five of our favorite looks and (though we'd love to go to Barneys for them, a. these pieces are not available online, and b. pshh we wish) found their essences for less.
Izabel Goulart, a Brazilian model whom Carine discovered at the Victoria's Secret fashion show, turns it in a Mugler top.
For a cut-out zig, zag into this ribboned and mesh-topped tunic from Topshop for $66.
Naomi Campbell, praised, after 25 years of friendship, by Roitfeld for having a huge heart, nestles up in a sheepskin jacket turned wool-out by Fendi.
Find a good sheepskin like this one from Nasty Gal by Unif for $178, and turn it inside out for the same effect.
Mary Janes in navy tug at the good girl in all of us. Try these über sparkly and platformed pair by Jeffrey Campbell from Solestruck for $125.
Mary Frey, Mario Sorrenti's wife who can typically be found spending time at home with the kids, sizzles in this curvaceous Stella McCartney number.
A fairly close match can be found in this LBD by Motel at Nasty Gal for $80.
Carine Roitfeld's former Vogue intern, and daughter of Danielle Steele, Vanessa Traina cuddles up in Altuzarra.
Loving the tattered cable knit? Try the Marc by Marc Jacobs version from Net-a-Porter for $250. (Yes, that's the look for less.)
Get the thigh high slit with this crossover skirt by BB Dakota on Shopbop for $60
Giovanna Battaglia and Carine go back years; she evokes movie stars of eras past in Junya Watanabe.
Like Watanabe, this other version is also faux fur. Found in Topshop's Unique collection, this fur cuffed jacket runs $440.
