Memo Pad: Running From Project Runway... Carine Roitfeld's Crystal Ball?....

Fewer fashion followers appear to be tuning in to “Project Runway” on Lifetime after the fourth week of the show’s sixth season.

A SINGULAR WOMAN: Could Carine Roitfeld be the next fashion figure to segue into filmmaking? In an interview with the French weekly Le Journal du Dimanche on Sunday, the editor in chief of Paris Vogue said if she were to leave the magazine, she would like to do “a well-made film about fashion. It’s a world that’s a lot more fun than the one Robert Altman painted in ‘Prêt-à-Porter.’” As for the endless speculation that she could one day succeed Anna Wintour at the head of American Vogue, Roitfeld replied: “I would be flattered [by an offer], I would consider it, but I think I would refuse it. I’m not sure I have her strength. And also, I love fashion a lot. French Vogue is like ‘Babette’s Feast.’ Everything is important. Anna Wintour shows fashion and the collections. She sees everything and imposes her choices. Myself, I leave room for a lot of points of view.” — Miles Socha
