It's to Carine Roitfeld's own credit and director Fabien Constant's funky and frenetic pacing that the doc feels neither like a corporate hagiography nor like mere fashionista masturbation material.
All the artistry and absurdity, glamour and the grit of the fashion industry are on display in the documentary Mademoiselle C.
Village Voice
Mademoiselle C, however, shows the reclusive style guru as the antithesis to the infamous fashion queen, and Roitfeld comes across as quite goofy and actually relatable.
The filmmaking has some of the wit and irreverence of its subject, but goes on meandering tangents rather than having a cohesive vision or tone.
As vanity projects go, this one’s unusually well-made — as any portrait of an iconic stylist ought to be.
Mme C. is Carine Roitfeld, ex-editor of Vogue Paris and former stylist. She’s a maternal presence – her own son calls her a MILF. Which makes for fantastic access, if minimal drama.
High in gloss if not necessary insight, this is manna for fashion fans but a marginally slighter piece of work than The September Issue.
The Hollywood Reporter
Mademoiselle C should please fashion devotees while leaving everyone else scratching their heads.
The Dissolve
More of a fawning love letter than a nuanced profile of a woman who surely must be more fascinating than she comes off here.
Time Out
This is merely a vanity project that shamelessly plugs Roitfeld’s new stateside brand.
