Carine Roitfeld announced that she’s stepping down as editor-in-chief of French “Vogue.” She wanted to make it clear that nothing was wrong. Roitfeld has been with the magazine for a decade and she felt that it was best to leave the magazine on a good note.
She told Cathy Horyn:
“It’s ten years that I’m editor of the magazine. I think it’s time to do something different.”
Roitfeld said her leaving had absolutely nothing to do with Condé Nast International chief executive Jonathan Newhouse.
“I had so much freedom to do everything I wanted. I think I did a good job. When everything is good, maybe I think it’s the time to do something else. I have no plan at all.”
Roitfeld will complete issues for the magazine through March and she’s not quite sure what she will do after that.
