CR Fashion Book #3 Covers with Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski, Saville Dorfman and Diogo de Castro Gomes

Carine Roitfeld’s bi-annual fashion magazine CR Fashion Book (which has a starring role in the upcoming “Mademoiselle C” documentary) is launching its third issue today and it features the proverbial cast of thousands. Roitfeld enlisted respected photographers and personal pals to give issue Fashion Book #3 something most of the recent Fall issues didn’t have: interesting and bold photo-editorials featuring equally interesting people and inspiring situations. Who would have thought that was possible in New York fashion publishing?

The cover(s) features a close up shot of Kim Kardashian (seriously looking fabulous in all her pregnant glory!!–and I am not a Kim Kardashian fan) and model Emily Ratajkowski of “Blurred Lines” video fame. Inside there are fashion features shot by Tom Ford, Sebastian Faena and Bruce Weber. Roitfeld herself also photographs for the first time with a tribute to the opera singer Farinelli. (Farinelli was the stage name of Carlo Maria Michelangelo Nicola Broschi, celebrated Italian castrato singer of the 18th century and one of the greatest singers in the history of opera.)

‘The Cult’ by Sebastian Faena stars Irina Shayk and is by far the moodiest and darkest photo-shoot in the book. Roitfeld rounds out the book with her first photo-shoot featuring model Natasa Vojonovic as the opera singer Farinelli.
