Couple of comments: writer-director Fabien Constant was given unparalleled access to his subject matter, without any visible restrictions. I don't know whether it was a conscious decision, but the documentary spends just a few fleeting moments on Carine's past, as a result of which we don't get to understand how this woman arrived to this particular moment in her life. Nor are we any the wiser what exactly happened for her to walk away (or to be pushed out?) at Vogue Paris. The movie does a much better job documenting the challenges of launching a new magazine, and in fact the last 30-40 min. are entirely focused on that, and are for me the most compelling part of this documentary. A big negative throughout the documentary for me is the incessant name-dropping. Kanye West! Donatella Versace! Kate Upton! Scarlett Johansson! Stef Van der Laan! and on and on, it just never stops.Read more ›
This documentary is boring: very little fashion. It is more a PR stunt for her magazine: the camera follows Carine across the globe and she talks with her collaborators about the concept of her new magazine, the cover, the logo and the "difficulties" she is facing. We see a lot of her children (one is an art dealer and the other one is a creative director ... very hard to get into fashion/art with mum and daddy's PR machine behind them ...). There are a couple of shoots and most of the documentary is about Carine is becoming grandma, Carine is polite and lovely with everyone, Carine is organising a charity event. You get the point!
The September Issue is what a fashion documentary should be: focus on fashion, how it really works behind the scenes, great photography. This Mademoiselle C is plain boring and just a PR assignment to boost CR image - rumour has it that she got dismissed from Paris Vogue for favouring her friends in photo shoots (Tom Ford). True? Who knows, the PR documentary does not talk about it.
Carina is a very likeable person and comes across grounded with her values based around her family unit.
Her passion for anything fashion is very contagious, but she never lets the mad, unpredictable world of fashion go to her head. She has true classic style which seems based on just knowing herself really well and being comfortable in her own skin.
If you love fashion this DVD has a place in your collection.
magazine CR. She shows the glamour of the fashion industry but also the very human and endearing
personal qualities which make her such an attractive and inspiring person. Item arrived on time and in perfect condition.
