    You’ll be left scratching your head wondering what a naked girl draped in a purple net curtain in a cemetery has got to do with frocks. Not many revelations here.

    High in gloss if not necessary insight, this is manna for fashion fans but a marginally slighter piece of work than The September Issue.

    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.

    As vanity projects go, this one’s unusually well-made — as any portrait of an iconic stylist ought to be.

    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 a distinctly not-insider, though, I would have benefited more from a broader portrait of the woman herself, and how she became such a legend.

    There are just so many ways Carine Roitfeld can say she loves fashion in Mademoiselle C, a somewhat interesting documentary that brings us into the inner workings of a magazine, but harps a bit too much on her ideas of fashion and style.

    Unfortunately, the film doesn't show its subject's creative process as much as that of her collaborators.

    Mademoiselle C should please fashion devotees while leaving everyone else scratching their heads.

    This is merely a vanity project that shamelessly plugs Roitfeld’s new stateside brand.

    More of a fawning love letter than a nuanced profile of a woman who surely must be more fascinating than she comes off here.
