Conde Nast Editors and Photographers Banned From Carine Roitfeld's Magazine

Condé Nast Editors Reportedly Banned From Working on Carine Roitfeld's Magazine

Editors and photographers at Condé Nast have reportedly been told they're not allowed to work on Carine Roitfeld's new biannual magazine, CR Fashion Book.

According to a few anonymous sources, Condé Nast International chairman Jonathan Newhouse has reminded Mario Testino, Craig McDean, Mert Alas, Marcus Piggot, and others who have exclusive contracts to shoot for Condé Nast titles that they legally can't work for Roitfeld. One source alleges that Newhouse has even gone so far as to strongly discourage other photographers who don't have the same contracts from working with the former Vogue Paris editor.

"Everyone is buzzing about the Condé roadblocks against Carine," one source said. "People love Carine but are more frightened of the Condé Nast machine."


Roitfeld has already culled two editors from the Condé Nast flock. Former Teen Vogue accessories editor Shiona Turini and former contributing fashion and market editor Michaela Dosamantes are both on the CR Fashion Book payroll.

Neither Condé Nast nor Fashion Media LLC, which operates CR Fashion Book — as well as V Magazine and V Man — has commented on the rumors. But Roitfeld said when she announced her new publication's name in April that she didn't want to challenge Vogue's dominance in any way.

"Vogue is a very beautiful magazine, an institution, and I learned so much working there," she said. "You can't put yourself into competition with a magazine like Vogue; you have to create something new, something different."
