Michelle Obama Requests 'Mademoiselle C' for Private White House Screening
The FLOTUS asked for a copy of the Fabien Constant-directed film about former Paris Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld.
Carine Roitfeld, star of Fabien Constant's documentary Mademoiselle C, has found a fan in Michelle Obama.
According to Fashionista, the director confirmed to the fashion news website that the first lady requested a copy of Mademoiselle C -- which documents Roitfeld's life as she launches her own magazine, CR Fashion Book -- for a private screening at the White House.
During New York Fashion Week in September, the world premiere of Mademoiselle C (co-sponsored by The Hollywood Reporter) saw actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Rose Byrne and Kelly Rutherford; supermodels Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karolina Kurkova and Lily Donaldson; and Hollywood stylist George Kotsiopoulos also showing their support for the chic 58-year-old French fashion icon.
"I learned about Carine that she is mixing everything -- work and personal life -- but I didn't expect it to be that much," said Constant at the star-studded premiere in New York. "So the lady you see here is the one you see on the screen, and the one you see in the CR Fashion Book is the one you can see in everything she does. It's like a therapy when you go to see the film. I'm really happy with the work of the team. I think of magazines, of everything, shooting is about a team."
The first lady was scheduled to make an appearance Oct. 11 in Los Angeles but canceled her trip as a result of the federal government's ongoing shutdown.
Mademoiselle C opened Sept. 11 in New York, followed by a Sept. 20 release in L.A.
