Her signature blouse and pencil skirt are anything but boring.

Carine Roitfeld epitomizes the glamour of the fashion industry. She is the global fashion director for Harper's Bazaar, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, a living fashion icon and our longstanding style crush.

When you look at her repertoire of phenomenal looks, she perpetually exudes three things: elegance, luxury and sophistication. She loves to wear all-black ensembles, streamlined slacks and minimal coats but adds excitement with sheer fabrics, rich textures and interesting silhouettes. With the help of croc embossment, mermaid sequins and pretty prints, her signature blouse and pencil skirt are anything but boring.

"I like to surprise people. I try to take risks."

–Carine Roitfeld, The Guardian Interview
