Julia Restoin Roitfeld Directs a Short Film for Stuart Weitzman

Julia Restoin Roitfeld can now add “director” to her list of achievements. The stylist and model was tapped by Stuart Weitzman to do a short film spotlighting the brand’s latest offerings. Rock Roll Ride, inspired by Playboy magazine spreads and 60s TV special effects, stars Dylan Penn and Poppy Delevingne. The models twirl their hair and thumb through magazines topless until they venture out to explore the countryside in thigh-high Weitzman boots. 

Rock Roll Ride is a film of firsts for both Julia and the label. This is Julia’s debut directorial role and Weitzman’s first time tapping a female in this capacity. The new director seems over the moon about her latest project with the brand. “As a creative director, I think secretly I always wanted to direct a movie,” she said in a statement. “When Stuart Weitzman approached me to direct their fourth short film, I immediately said yes because I’m obsessed with shoes.”
