The former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld launched her CR Fashion Book Magazine with a party during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City on Saturday night. The newest publication to hit the fashion industry boasted some of the most gorgeous women includung Anna dello Russo, magazine cover girl Kate Upton and Karlie Kloss.

The CR Fashion Book magazine will be available on newsstands September 13 with a fatter issue than expected. The 340-page debut issue sold 150 pages of advertising. Brands that bought in include Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Tom Ford, Chanel and Estée Lauder.
About 90 percent of CR’s launch issue is dedicated to fashion shoots and 10 percent to features and stories. CRFashionBook.com will be the online extension of Roitfeld’s return to magazines since leaving French Vogue last year. The site will feature three main sections: The Book, featuring exclusive fashion, travel and lifestyle stories; The Envelope, which will be a daily update of Roitfeld’s latest obsessions; and The Wall, which publisher Jorge Garcia says will be “an amalgamation” of the other two sections.
“CRFashionBook.com is like an invitation into my home, to give the reader a glimpse of my world,” Roitfeld told The Huffington Post. “It will act as my personal diary to record everything that moves and inspires me.”
“When I was at Vogue, I had a lot of freedom. But I was still in a beautiful golden cage. I could not do a campaign with Karl Lagerfeld or launch a line with MAC,” said Roitfeld. “I want to do all these propositions. I think its fun. This magazine is a project to do between all the other crazy projects I have. I want to enjoy, you know?”
