Carine Roitfeld on Emmanuelle Alt — Interview

Carine Roitfeld Says She Doesn't Regret Losing Emmanuelle Alt's Friendship

>> Carine Roitfeld is not only enjoying life as a free agent — she's also enjoying the ability to speak her mind, she says. In a recent New York Times article, the former editor opened up on everything from her current hair color to certain friendships — new and old. Among the newest tidbits? Confirmation that stylist — and former French Vogue colleague — Marie-Amélie Sauvé will be involved in Roitfeld's yet-to-be-named magazine. Read on for a few more highlights:

On the past year: "This could have been a terrible year for me. It could have been very sad for me. I could have gone off to hide at a spa, or to Riyadh, but instead I changed my personality, and it has been a very successful year.”

On the Roitfeld brand: "Funnily, it is true that my name has become almost a brand. Maybe I will follow Tom Ford. I will not be as successful as him, but I want to have as much fun.”

On returning to her roots as a natural brunette, after five years of being blond: "I think I will be more me."

On losing her 10-year friendship with Emanuelle Alt: "Maybe this was not supposed to be a friendship. If I look at the balance, maybe I lost some people I thought were my friends, but I made so many new friends. I am very happy, in the end, because I am the winner . . . at the end of the day."
