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.

Roitfeld said:

“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.
