    1. Can't decide what she's planning. I'm sure she's got something great up her sleeve though.

    2. I'm thinking Emmanuelle Alt might be a contender…

    3. Heartbroken.

    There is something about Carine that is not describable. She some times wears things that are really not spectacular yet she, in all her self, makes it spectacular. It may be a case of wanting quiet or new but my hope is she returns again where she can be the creative and unique force that she is. Is there really a replacement? Probably, it will just have to be some one unique in there own right!

    OOOoh :(
    I'm gonna miss her so much…
    Now, I'm also asking those things to myself and I can't answer any!!

    I admire your photography and your way of blogging :)


    December 17, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    Hmm I wonder what happened….Does the devil really wear Prada?

    It might be for the best, change is inevitable anyways so good luck to her!

    I have always admired her so much !
    Back when she first got the job, the way she spoke of being a mother to her boys, working, plastic surgery etc. I think she has been a great editor and it is too bad the New York Vogue editor is not as good ( imo) ..

    I am hoping this is as she says, to do new things, and that there is nothing wrong.
    I cannot imagine who will replace her .. and what a big weight on that persons shoulders that will be !!

    I made a comment on my post Fashionable Tendencies. But the main thing is that she is leaving before the party is over and that, according to Coco Chanel (and many other wise women) is the very best time to leave.

    She's leaving, Oprah's show's ending….is it the end of the world as we know it?! Seriously, don't know much about this, but best to her, and whatever comes, I'm sure she'll look good doing it.

    I guess she will wait 'til going to US VOgue, or maybe gonna work with Tom Ford.

    To replace her….am wishing to Anna Dello Russo, but she will be to much for French Vogue.

    DOn't need to be sad, she left to prepare something BIGGER that we can imagine……

    I'm shocked. She is truly valuable to the fashion world, but since she is leaving and i bet off to better things, someone young driven takes her place and preserves what she has done so far.
    I mean, a person capable of following her lead, respecting her work, but improving vogue at the same time. And this is how the world works, it won't stop.

    She's quite stylish…but come on, outside of New York City and Paris, who cares about what's she doing? It kind of like that "inside the Beltway" mentality…only applied to the Big Apple and the City of Lights.

    -I think she's probably going to take a few weeks off and go somewhere warm.
    -Definitely not dello Russo, how could anyone think that for a moment?
    -What does it matter in the light of eternity? She is a blip in the grand scheme of things. Smart to leave before the party's over!

    she is probably burnt out, after working in magazine publishing for 5 years, I already feel that way!

    who knows though, I'm not her.

    with her budget and clout, it's not hard to do what she does. that said it was a life not a job. hopefully she has other interests to occupy her time. and yes, US Vogue is horrible, like most US magazines.

    I am happy for her! A bit sad for the magazine. It's so expertly assembled. Will they keep that amazing font?

    Emmanuelle Alt would make Carine's absence bearable.

    It's exciting! Change is wonderful! For her, for VOGUE, for the readers…

    For the past few months, the look of French Vogue was already changing, but I thought it was the effect of the new design director, not Carine. It makes sense now.

    I'm happy and sad. Happy for her because I know she is wise enough to make smart choices. Sad for the end of an Era with my favorite rendition of Vogue.

    I enjoy Paris Vogue.
    It remains artistic in photographic expression and still holds a European feeling.
    The October 90th Anniversary issue was so beautiful.

    Ms. Roitfeld I'm sure had her reasons.
    Reading her Twitter words of wisdom..she certainly is a woman with fantastic inspiration and optimism.

    She's leaving whilst on top.
    I wish her all the very best.

    I knew something was amiss a few months ago when U.S. distribution of Paris Vogue started getting spotty, then I saw the hideous art direction changes in the November issue…the typography is so very ugly. So non-Carine.

    And now, this. In my world, it translates to $20 USD a month now headed to the piggybank rather than the newsstand…a real publishing tragedy.

    As much as I hate her for using that pervert Terry Richardson over and over again for the magazine, I can't help but admit that she is probably the best, out of all the Vogue editors. French Vogue puts US Vogue to shame, and I was kinda hoping Anna Wintour would announce a retirement, because photo-shopped celebrity covers is so old and played out. As much as I'm sad that she's leaving, I will say that this was a good move as she's leaving the magazine with a good reputation, where as when Anna leaves it will be "Ding dong the bitch is dead."

    in a fashion world, they always create something new. they actually seek new and young sense all the time.

    i don't know why she quits but respect her decision.
    i cannot like a veteran stay the top so long.
    it could make a magazine solid.

    i just want young ppl to take over her desire and grade up it. looking forward to see new one.

    I don't really care as I don't read the French Vogue. I read the British only, as The American Vogue is so crap. Sometimes I buy the Italian one for the pictures..

    Hmm, I think she will retire, she will go somewhere for vacation and then have at least a year off, and then she might write a book.

    Emmanuelle Alt will be taking over, she is cool also..

    Hmm, what I feel, nothing really, but I love her style, how she looks, she reminds me of Patti Smith, my dear idol and role model and muse :)
    I love the make up, her colors, and the Tres Chic look, without being "Too done" but always a bit suprising. She is SO COOL!

    It's a new dawn… she came into shake up Vogue Paris, and Vogue Paris BECAME Carine Roitfeld. I admire the creativity she bought to the mag and I am sure her final issue will be remarkable.

    However, I think it is time for change… and no change is needed more than at Vogue USA.

    ADR needs to stay at Vogue Nippon , she is not Paris!

    such a coincidence that she leaves one month after Tom Ford is guest editor at the french Vogue. they used to be partners in the 90s. maybe she was just waiting for this, otherwise… why now??

    I hope this does not mean that Vogue Paris will become as boring as the other Vogues. I hope Vogue Paris retains its unique touch, its creativity, its sense of style.

    After all these comments, I've already forgotten the name of the unattractive, yet stylish, woman we're discussing.

    First, no one is irreplaceable.

    Second, I agree with leaving at the top of your game, so she's smart, too.

    Third, wow! Lots of fashion afficiondos here, of course. These are comments from a fashion rube…living in the suburbs, buy Vogue maybe 4X/year — considered stylish in my circle, but probably would never make it with you people.

    So anyhow, just makes me want to go buy a Paris Vogue to see what all the hype is about.

    Sorry you're sad she's gone!

    In Paris, everyone from the world of fashion, think she has been fired because Affairs Nicolas Ghesquière

    and also all the money she has arrangements with companies, gucci, prada, etc …

    And it's the same probleme with Emanuelle Alt


    Carine Roitfeld Banned from Balenciaga!

    It's a fight of Parisian proportions as Balenciaga severs ties with French Vogue.

    We know that the French have a reputation for being snooty to Americans, but we always assumed that there was some sort of special code amongst themselves. Not so– if Balenciaga's French Vogue ban is any indication. The Parisian fashion house barred Carine Roitfeld and Co. from attending their much-anticipated Fall '10 runway show. None of the ladies were to be found front row on Thursday, or even (gasp) in standing-room only.

    When asked for some insight on the apparent slight, Roitfeld said via WWD, "We're blacklisted. It’s too bad, it’s a beautiful house and it’s French. I hope that it’s not forever.” When pressed for a reason she advised, "Ask them."

    Since Balenciaga has declined to comment on the matter, we are left to speculate. NYmag thinks the ban may have been caused by a styling faux pas– i.e. don't ever mix Balenciaga with Balmain in an editorial or your next invitation may just get lost in the mail.

    Since Roitfeld is clearly a fan of the brand, we doubt it's a situation along the lines of New York Times fashion critic, Cathy Horyn's, self-publicized box-out by Giorgio Armani. In 2008, the fashion writer reported that she was told not to attend Armani's show due to a scathing review she had penned on one of the evidently-sensitive designer's couture shows.

    Even worse than missing out on the sure-to-be-chic street style shots that the French Vogue ladies would have provided had they attended the show in head-to-toe Balenciaga, are the amazing editorials we're going to miss out on. Apparently, Balenciaga has not only pulled their ads from the mag, but will also no longer lend clothing to the prized publication either. Le sigh.

    We certainly hope Balenciaga designer, Nicolas Ghesquière, and Carine Roitfeld can double-kiss and make up. In the meantime, we just want Carine to know that she's always welcome with us.

    I honestly cannot think of anyone who can/will do a better job than she has. I am also excited to see how french vogue will become after she leaves.

    Talking about the replacement i think deff 2 big contenders are Sauve and Alt, but that is too risky to say, besides Alt its too obvious she was the right hand of Carine while in the magazine, whoever replaces Carine will have big shoes to fill in; So, long live the Queen; Long live Carine!

    Personally, I think that French Vogue needs to reinvent itself if it wants to stay one of the top magazines during the following decade.
    I believe Carine understood that and is going to do something much fresher! I am happy for her, because I believe she has flair and a touch of French debauchery that make her truly unique.
    I wish she would do a collab with Tom Ford but that was ruled out of the question today!

    1) Probably on a nice brand new project with a brand. As a muse?

    2) I don't agree for Emanuelle Alt. She is good, she got talent but I don't think she got the power to endorse the shoes of a Editor-in-chief. For the last editions of French Vogue, she got more space. But, under C.R. power and influence, she is good. The question is, Can she be better than that AND without Roitfeld as a chief?

    For the successor, I have no clue.

    3) I am sad. Very sad to loose my French Vogue as it was for the last past 10 years. I enjoyed every edition and absorbe every words. Plus, she revamped the owl image and she gave her personal style to the publication. Sexy, classy, intimate, foward vision. Always good to spend for magazine.

    4) It is like the Phoebe Philo effect. Quitting when the fire is on. Very classy.

    5) We don't want to care about all the Balenciaga stories. We just want to to say bravo for the incredible work she did at Vogue.

    Love, a Vogue Paris reader.

    on second thoughts – fashion is all about constant change, experiments, new…so perhaps it would be good to have someone younger and fresher to replace carine, that could lead to newer ideas for the magazine.

    probably after seeing Tom Ford's not so attractive promotional photos of his new collection, Carine would be back working with him and bring sex back.
    Alt or Delo Russo are good candidates but i have a feeling that the replacement is a wild card. prolly, someone we never thought would.
    Carine's exit wasnt as dramatic as I expect it would be but less drama makes it more sophisticated giving the term "French Exit" a whole new meaning. haha. more than being heartbroken, i'm excited to find out the real answers to questions 1 and 2. ;P

    I think Carine is really a warm and strong woman. I have met her several times and she was always very sweet. But I do have to say that even though I respect her talent, I never found French Vogue that ' user friendly' After I bought it, I would feel a bit empty. I wish her all the best, but I am excited that French Vogue will have the possibility to go unto a new direction that is perhaps more grounded…more rounded like a great Cote du Rotie….

    Good for her!! She will continue to do marvelous things in the future, because of who she is. At least she is evolving herself and breaks boundries in her work and personal life. I think Anna W is jealous, secretly she wants to do the same, but is afraid of the unknown!

    Something about the second picture. The dress is outstanding and I love the way she walks it. The grin on her face as she peeks from under the brim of her hat is perfect.

    But the hat itself is a problem. Maybe it's just the band and the tassels. Whatever it is, there are better hats out there.

    Word on the street is that she was possibly asked to leave. She did rub a lot of designers and fashion houses the wrong way…as demonstrated with her being blacklisted from Balenciaga. Lots of fashion insiders think she was best suited for the creative director position and not editor-in-chief.

    1. She will probably build her consulting business after taking some time off. Tom Ford is a possiblity, working with him as Amanda Harlech does with Karl Lagerfeld. She would make a great muse for Tom, and they have a close relationship as well. I found it laughable that someone thought she might take the Chanel job after KL retires. No way, no how! She is an editor/stylist, NOT a designer.

    2. Emmanuelle Alt is at the front of the line to replace her. She is a bit different to Carine, but equally as chic.

    3. I'll miss the edge she brought to French Vogue that isn't found in any of their other international editions. She was fearless in pushing the envelope and that's something we don't see too often these days. But at the heart of things, I always thought she was a better stylist than editor. I hope her next project finds her really showing her creativity and style in ways we haven't yet seen.

I hope whoever is next is genuinely excited about this ever-changing media. I mean… where's Why didn't Carine do something cool with the Internet,or iPads? Why?

    As for the American Vogue, I stopped buying it also a few years ago, thinking it got more and more like a Grannies' Vogue. And I've been reading "all" the different Vogues for years and years! The British, The German, The Italian…

    Wonder what will change with Emmanuelle Alt in charge.

    Karl Lagerfeld is not too impressed about replacing Carine Roitfeld with Emmanuelle Alt, according to who reports from Lagerfeld's interview with WWD, where he talks about her broad shoulders, long legs, jeans, rolled up sleeves, and one hand on the hip.

    - Personally, I like her a lot, he says, but is this sufficient to run a magazine, he asks.
