Carine Roitfeld Shares Vintage Photos From Her Modelling Days

Long before she landed a job at Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld was scouted as a model. The editor has shared some of her old modeling snapshots which she explains were taken in London for an agency called Bobton's which signed her, while Elite Paris's teenage division also worked with her at the time. Carine commented to V magazine:
“The English photographer Tony Kent discovered me in the street in Paris when I was 16 and took me to Model Promotions, Elite Paris’s teenage division. After one season I went to London and signed with Bobton’s. These are my first and only modeling composites. On the far left I’m wearing a skirt that my mother made from souleiado, a very traditional French fabric used for napkins and table linens.”
