Mega fashion star and former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld just released the latest CR Fashion Book, its 10th edition with dual covers of Paris Jackson and Halima Aden, both shot by Mario Sorrenti. CR Men’s Book features artist Gucci Mane on its cover photographed by Terry Richardson.
The CR Fashion Book’s theme is Paris, a topic chosen by editor in chief Roitfeld, who says it is the city that defines and influences her the most. Roitfeld created the issue as a love letter to Paris, to show that the vitality of the city has not been lost and the fantasy lives on. Roitfeld looked to non-Parisians to capture a different perspective of the city for the issue.
CR Fashion Book includes a number of stars, super models and influencers, including French film actress and singer Isabelle Adjani, designer Olivier Chatenet, and models including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Stella Lucia, Liu Wen, Amina Blue, and Jordan Barrett. Karl Lagerfeld, Mario Sorrenti and Alexandra Utzmann are among the photographers in this latest edition. The men’s issue includes Matt Smith, who stars in the Netflix blockbuster, The Crown, a feature on actor Michael Shannon, and UFC breakout success, Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.
In the CR Fashion Book, film director Lee Daniels interviews cover star Jackson. She spoke to him about her father, Michael Jackson. “All of my inspiration. I would say 99 percent of my inspiration comes from him, because he has always been my world. He is my roots,” Paris told him. About the one quality of her father’s she wishes she could have—“Definitely his strength,” she said. “He was the strongest person I know and tried to do everything with as much love and kindness as possible.” On her future plans and potential career in music she noted, “I write music for myself. I use it as a way to get stuff out. It’s not something I see myself following career-wise. There are so many amazing artists in my family. If I were to do it as a career, it would change how I feel about music and I don’t want that to happen.”
