The Restoin Roitfelds: The Power Quadruple

I love the Restoin Roitfeld family.  I'm obsessed intrigued by their deep artistic veins, and the fact that once again they are a shining testament that where there is a power couple, there are gorgeous talented children too.  Perhaps most famous of the family, Carine Roitfeld was the former editor of French Vogue, and has this killer fashion sense.  She also loves to wear that which no one else but her could pull off.  Her longtime partner (a whopping 30 years!), Christian Restoin is the creative consultant of the shirt collection Equipment that was relaunched in Spring 2010 by Serge Azria.  Their son Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld is a former model living in New York and currently working as an art dealer/curator doing some of the most incredible shows around.  Their daughter, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, is likewise making a name for herself as a rising socialite and muse to legendary designer Tom Ford.  I've seen some of her modeling stuff, and she is really talented, one of the next up and coming in the NYC scene.
 All in all, this family scored ridiculously high in the talent section, and not too badly in the looks section too.  But my favorite part of them, is their sense of style.  Bold, sexy, and always on top of things.  The fashion blog Demi-Couture says of the Restoin Roitfelds, "I can’t imagine a more intense, brutally elegant French family."  Well said indeed.
