leaves Vogue Paris
Carine Roitfelds first issue as editor-in-chief: Kate Moss shot by Mario Testino
In February 2001, the ex-model, stylist, and fashion writer Carine Roitfeld released her first issue as editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris. On the cover was a blond, short haired Kate Moss shot by Roitfelds longtime allied, Mario Testino. Last Friday, the 17th of December 10 years later, Roitfeld announced her resignation.
”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,” said Jonathan Newhouse, chief executive of Condé Nast International. ”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.”
The March issue is likely to be Roitfelds last, but she was not sure what she would do after that. ”I have no plan at all” she said to New York Times’ Cathy Horyn. ”When everything is good, maybe I think it’s the time to do something else.”
Condé Nast said her replacement would be announced within the next few weeks.
