Carine Roitfeld Is Not a Nymphomaniac


br>
Carine Roitfeld may have created some sexually charged editorials and fashion ads in her time, but the editor says that doesn't mean she's a sex addict.

"People told me I was a nymphomaniac," Roitfeld said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph. "Maybe I seem crazy because of some picture; maybe it's my art, what I have to express. But I have been with the same person for over 30 years — we never married because I am superstitious — but with the same person forever. I've never been a nymphomaniac."

She also clarified that she was never in the running for Anna Wintour's job at Vogue, a rumor widely circulated in the press and used as a plot line in the movie The Devil Wears Prada. In reality, Roitfeld has a great deal of respect for Wintour.

"She's tough but she's very honest. I like that," she said. "When my kids came to New York she invited them to dinner and as a mum those are things you don't forget. She is not my best friend, we never talk on the phone every day, but she is someone I respect, and the older you get in this business the fewer people you respect."
