Flashback. 1999. Alek Wek was busy breaking barriers, Lara Stone entered the Elite Model Look competition, Lily Rose Depp was born and Carine Roitfeld was having a seminal year. To that (and more), Carine dedicates her 11th issue of CR Fashion Book to fashion’s golden year. “To me 1999 was the last moment when fashion felt naïve and innocent and free. 1999 is about a spirit of independence…I think right now a lot of people are looking back to this period of time,” she says. Not a re-issue: Four NEW covers: Stone and Depp by Steven Klein, while Wek and Cara Taylor are photographed by Mario Sorrenti (Art Partner). Plus, CR Men’s issue 5 features never before seen images of Prince also by Steven Klein. All nodding to the nineties. Is 1999 ‘now’ more than ever before? Preview the covers and Lily-Rose Depp’s editorial.
