A documentary profile of former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief, Carine Roitfeld. After a glittering ten year career at Vogue, Roitfeld faces her biggest challenge yet when she decides to leave to set up a rival, high-end fashion magazine, CR. Granted unique access, the cameras go behind the scenes to document the creative process involved in producing the fledgling magazine, from the models, the catwalks and the photo shoots, through to the ultra-chic launch party held in New York.

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.
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. Carine Roitfeld does give us a couple of great lines, though, such as "It's better to be told you look beautiful tonight than to be asked what are you wearing?", ha! And even more appropriate: "You have to love the camera!", which Carine certainly does.
Imagine my surprise when this documentary showed up out of the blue at my local art-house theatre here in Cincinnati this past weekend without any pre-release hype or advertising. I figured this wouldn't play very long and went ahead to see it right away. The screening I saw this at was not well attended, and I wasn't surprised. Bottom line: "Mademoiselle C." is an okay but not great documentary. But if you are interested in high fashion and the fashion magazine world, then this is a no-brainer and worth checking out in the theatre or on DVD/Blu-ray.
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.
