Friends check out this two great fashion minds…Karl Lagerfeld interviewed former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld for September’s Interview magazine.

On erotic photography:

Karl: When do you think a photograph become erotic? And when does it cross that boundary into the x-rated or pornography?

Carine: It’s very difficult to know when you’re crossing the boundary. I hate the word boundary because I never think about it when taking a picture. Very often it doesn’t mean anything because it depends on who’s looking at the picture more than the content of the picture itself.

Carine on Mario Testino:

Roitfeld on Mario Testino, who was not well known when they began working together at French Glamour, “I helped him understand what a woman is, how she closes her legs, how she feels on high heels, how she wants to pull at her T-shirt and skirt . . . And Mario taught me to speak better English, which I was doing badly at the time. [laughs] He also gave me confidence. When you have confidence, when you feel loved by people, you can tell them the truth. It’s important that I can say the photo isn’t beautiful or the photo shoot sucks.

Karl on Carine being a great mother:

Karl: Yes, no one can say that you don’t take care of them. You’re also lucky because they are very beautiful. It would have been difficult to have an ugly daughter.

Carine: A moment ago, you said some flaws are necessary in beauty. They do have a temper sometimes. But they are very good children.

Karl and Carine on fashion:

Karl: Where in your life and achievements do you place fashion? Is it extremely important to you?

Carine: Yes, it’s very important. To live, to exist, to work, it’s very important.
