ms. roitfeld reflects

“ People come up to you with a microphone after the show, and sometimes you’re [not ready] to say what [you] think of this show. Sometimes it takes a week to digest everything. I’m not very good just after a show. Sometimes you love it, but you don’t know why you love it. You have to digest, and after you have better answers.”
Carine Roitfeld, quoted on style.com
I love this quote. I love that in an age when just about everyone has a way to broadcast their immediate, visceral opinions, Ms. Roitfeld prefers to think before she speaks. To support the “what” with some solid, (and perhaps ultimately more passionate) “whys.”
