Carine Roitfeld, the much-beloved and revered editor of Vogue Paris, has resigned and will leave her post at the magazine at the end of January. Roitfeld has been the editor of Vogue Paris for ten years and is said to be leaving to pursue consulting opportunities.
"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 and advertising and editorial success," Jonathan Newhouse, CEO of Conde Nast International told British Vogue. "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," Newhouse said. "Carine will be deeply missed. I am extremely grateful to her for what she has achieved."
