Carine Roitfeld to Release Book of Models Wearing Kanye's Designs
Fashion editor Carine Roitfeld is launching a new book on Feb. 25, and this time Kanye West is involved.
The book, "CR Girls 2016," will feature Carine's favorite models shot by Sante D'Orazio and wearing designs from Kanye's Yeezy collection and shoes by Gianvito Rossi.
Fashionistas will also want to pick up the American-themed CR 8 and CR Men's Book issue 2.

Of the latter two, Roitfeld said in a statement, “In the '80s, fashion created a fantasy around the American girl––athletic, toned, smiling, happy, gracious, and perfect. For me, no model was more iconic than Christie Brinkley––with her white teeth and blonde hair––and her image was so compelling that it set a new beauty standard. Now suddenly in 2016, we see the comeback of the American girl, and I find myself so excited by this new generation of stars. My dream for this issue was to play with pop culture ideas of the American girl to create something brand-new.
It is my interpretation of the American melting pot––beautiful and diverse.”
