Gather ’round, kids. In a recent short from i-D and The Business of Fashion, Carine Roitfeld shared her most embarrassing moment in fashion. But it’s not what you’re thinking. Here’s what the founder of CR Fashion Book had to say:
“Some years ago, I went out of a Marc Jacobs show at night, and there were a lot of stairs. I missed one stair. I fell down. It was very embarrassing, but all the photographers in front of me put down their cameras, and they didn’t take one picture. So, for me, it was, can I say a proof of love? A proof of respect for me because they didn’t take advantage and do a picture where I would look stupid or ridiculous.”
Now that’s power.
