Carine Roitfeld Talks About Harper's Bazaar Global Director

Carine Roitfeld: "No Boss" at Harper's Bazaar


br>
In her new role as global fashion director at Harper's Bazaar, Carine Roitfeld says she won't be working for the American edition's editor in chief, Glenda Bailey.

"I'm always independent," Roitfeld said in an interview after a talk about her life and work at New York's French Institute this week. "No boss."

She added that while Bailey is "a very important part of Bazaar," she'll work primarily with Hearst Magazines International president and CEO Duncan Edwards. (Last month when the magazine announced it had hired Roitfeld, it said she would collaborate with the American edition's creative director, Stephen Gan.) Roitfeld will create four stories a year that will appear across Bazaar's international editions. On stage, Roitfeld said, "Suddenly, I've passed from like 50,000 readers [at Vogue Paris] to 11 million readers."

"When you're talking to a wider scale of readers, you think a bit differently," she told WWD. "You will recognize me in the pictures. My way, my castings, the way I put clothes together, it's very me."

During the talk, Roitfeld said her new position is a first in the world of fashion magazines.

"I think it's very interesting because of the globalization in fashion," she said. "Everyone in Shanghai and Berlin can buy the same dress. And now, because of this possibility with Bazaar, the woman in Shanghai and the woman in Berlin and New York, they can read and see exactly the same story. . . . Imagine how exciting it is to be able to talk to all these women, to give them the same knowledge, in a way."
