The latest issue of Interview magazine hits stands nationwide today, and the mag features a fascinating chat between former Vogue fashion editor Carlyn Cerf De Dudzeele and designer Azzedine Alaïa. De Dudzeele reveals her current obsession, inspirations and where she thinks stylists belong. 

ALAÏA: Are there any young photographers who you think are defining this period in the way that Avedon, Penn, and [Helmut] Newton defined their time?

DE DUDZEELE: It’s a different time now, and it’s interesting to see how it is changing. I love looking at photographers from the street, the bloggers. I love the internet, I’m obsessed with it. I love the idea that everyone has access to fashion. I spend too much time on it!

ALAÏA: Do you have any particular affinity with models whose looks match your vision?

DE DUDZEELE: Girls like Naomi [Campbell], Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Kristen McMenamy. For me, they are my real sources of inspiration. Many times, models look divine when they arrive at the studio. Sometimes, after hair, makeup, and fashion, they don’t look fresh and divine anymore.

ALAÏA: How do you feel about the current celebration of the stylist?

DE DUDZEELE: Stylists should remain behind the scenes. A great stylist, like a great designer, lets the work speak for itself.
