When it comes to coolness factor, we think it might be impossible to beat Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, today's Girl Of The Month. She's Tom Ford-approved (JRR is the face of his perfume Black Orchid), has a true tastemaker for a mother (Carine Roitfeld is the editor of French Vogue), as well as a randomly interesting career (art design at Baron + Baron in New York). Not to mention that she's got enviable coloring (dark hair, blue eyes) and a figure that was built for Alaia. If you don't believe the latter, just check out the far right picture...
Around the office, we like that she has a slightly offbeat sense of style and is riskier than oh, say, her American counterpoint. Could you imagine any other editor's offspring in an all black, skintight outfit accessorized with a super-cincher belt and ankle boots? Not so much. It's clear that she has fun getting dressed, and the fact that she doesn't take fashion so seriously is very appealing to us.
We dig that while JRR supports big labels like Chloe and Dolce & Gabbana, she can just as often be found in up-and-coming designers like Thakoon and Phi (the white dress, pictured above, worn to the Met Gala). Even better is the fact that she's neither a drifting dilettante nor a hot mess of PR shenanigans. She's a Parson's grad with a degree in design and management and just recently created the square logo for pal Genevieve Jones' new jewelry line. She's grounded, she's gorgeous, she's Gallic-yeah, we almost hate her too.
