"Roitfeld's latest endeavor, Irreverent (Rizzoli), is an aptly titled 368-page album of photographs culled over her 30-year career. Among images from some of her most famous, and most provocative, shoots--including Eva Herzigova posing with a lot of bloody boeuf for The Face in 1997 and last year's plastic-surgery story with Crystal Renn--are intimate, endearing snapshots of Roitfeld's partner, Christian Restoin, and their children, Julia and Vladimir.
