Carine Roitfeld’s styling nous is well known and rightfully so — out of sartorial dissonance she orchestrates veritable symphonies. Over at the flagship Tumblr for the Roitfeld’s signature publication, CR Fashion Book, she regularly conducts exercises in economy, which invariably yield dramatic results. For today’s lesson photographed by Max von Gumppenberg and Patrick Bienert involving a Louis Vuitton slip worn seven different ways, the precocious Lida Fox gets an A for the manner of her interpretation. Seven different hair styles by Shay Ashual further delineate each of the seven ways, but it is the understanding shown by Lida that makes this assignment anything but rote.
