MAC + Carine Roitfeld = PORNO CHIC?

Leave a comment

You may love her, you may hate her, you may not know who the hell she is but, Carine Roitfeld has joining forces with MAC and releasing a make-up collection this Fall. Carine Roitfeld, former model, was the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris  from 2001 through early 2011. During which time she was the mind behind some of the most beautiful, boundary-pushing publications.

While some of her decisions at Vogue Paris caused controversy, and while I may not agree with everything Miss Roitfeld does or puts out there, I’m excited to see her MAC collection – because let’s face it – the woman was and is a force in the style world!

Roitfeld’s portfolio of work and her aesthetic approach is often labeled with things like provocative, sexy, controversial, far from p.c. (politically correct), boundary-pushing,  beautiful and bold, and of course “porno-chic”.

Check out CR herself here – with her signature smoky eyes and bold brows – the focus of her Fall 2012 MAC collection:  

Some of Carine Roitfeld’s covers during her time at Vogue Paris:

So what has MAC been saying on Twitter?

  • She is a living image of provocative fashion. Her colour collection debuts this Fall.
  • We have a Good Luck Star for you. Stencil it this Fall
  • The nude lip, bold brow and signature smoky eye will be elevated to a new art form this Fall.
According to what I have found out, the limited edition CR MAC line will focus heavily on the eyes and brows – reminiscent of Roitfeld’s signature look. She is most often seen with smoky eyes, bold brows and bare/nude lips. Carine Roitfeld is said to have been involved in every step, which is very much in line with her character and work style, including product design and packaging, collection and product names, colors and marketing ads.
So, I wonder if they are going to name the collection for her trademark aesthetic, Porno-Chic? Personally, I think that would be amazing!
