Carine Roitfeld - Carine Roitfeld's Fashion Tips

Carine Roitfeld passed on fashion tips to her daughter.

Stylish Carine - who has just announced her resignation from her role as French Vogue editor-in-chief - was an important influence on daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld when she was growing up according to the model and art director.

Julia revealed her mother told her: "Try not to over think it, because, if you do, it's not authentic. [Also] navy and black is one of the best combinations. And never to pluck my eyebrows which I did and now regret."

Julia - whose father is Christian Restoin, founder of fashion label Equipment - also revealed growing up in such a fashion heavy atmosphere made her wish to become a model, which came true thanks to family friend Tom Ford who once described her as "exactly what beauty is to me".

She told Style magazine: "When I was 16, seeing my mum surrounded by all these models, I secretly wanted to do it, but only because it would have been flattering for my ego. When I got to 20 I thought, 'Ok, I'm too old now.' Then Tom Ford called."
