Carine Roitfeld Stepping Down From Vogue Paris in January

>> After 10 years at the helm of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld has resigned from the magazine, opting to focus on personal projects. “It’s 10 years that I’m editor of the magazine,” Roitfeld told Cathy Horyn over the phone. “I think it’s time to do something different.”

She informed Jonathan Newhouse, CEO of Conde Nast International, of her decision, she says: “I have no problem with Jonathan, and he understood me very well. Newhouse, for his part, released a statement to Vogue UK: "It is impossible to overstate Carine's powerful contribution to Vogue and to the fields of fashion and magazine publishing. Under her direction,Vogue Paris received record levels of circulation, advertising and editorial success. Vogue Paris has established itself as one of the most iconic magazines in the world, with huge influence in the field of fashion and photography. Carine herself has become widely known as a beacon of style, fulfilling the role with charm and graciousness. She has become a giant in her profession. Carine will be deeply missed. I am extremely grateful to her for what she has achieved."

She plans to depart at the end of January, and expects to complete issues through March. Of her time at the magazine, she added: “I had so much freedom to do everything I wanted. I think I did a good job." However: "When everything is good, maybe I think it’s the time to do something else.” As for her future plans (could working with Tom Ford once again be in the mix?): “I have no plan at all.” Her replacement — some are already speculating former Vogue Russia editor Aliona Doletskaya or Vogue Paris fashion director Emmanuelle Alt —  will be announced in coming weeks.
