Carine Roitfeld Resigns From French Vogue


Carine Roitfeld Resigns From French Vogue


In a surprise move, Carine Roitfeld said Friday she will step down as editor in chief of French Vogue at the end of January.

“It’s 10 years that I’m editor of the magazine,” Ms. Roitfeld, one of the most influential editors in the fashion business, said in a telephone interview. “I think it’s time to do something different.”

She informed Jonathan Newhouse, the chief executive of Conde Nast International, that she wished to pursue other projects. “I have no problem with Jonathan, and he understood me very well,” Ms. Roitfeld said of her ideas for the magazine, which featured bold photography and expressed a cool, physical, erotic fashion ideal.

Ms. Roitfeld often did the styling for photo shoots. “I had so much freedom to do everything I wanted. I think I did a good job.” But she added, “When everything is good, maybe I think it’s the time to do something else.” She expects to complete issues through March. She said she was not sure what she would do after that. “I have no plan at all,” she said.

On British Vogue’s Web site, Mr. Newhouse said, “It’s 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.” .

She was shot by Thierry le Goues, Brazilian Eduardo Rezende, Mark Seliger.
She became the face of Ralph Lauren and landed her second cover for Vogue Brazil.

Never leaves home without
Her Blackberry, a true vice. She just can't help checking it all the time.

Rio's beaches

She hates
Almost nothing.

By Judith Puckett-Rinella:

Barnaby Roper, the innovative New York filmmaker and photographer, has created a short film exclusively for The Moment starring the model Dorothea Barth Jorgensen. In this captivating short, Roper combines powerful lighting and exquisitely timed edits — along with more than a little wax — to transform Dorothea into a three-dimensional otherworldly beauty. When not appearing in T films or posing for the pages of Italian Vogue or Love, the Swedish-born Jorgensen can often be found at Surf Café in Brooklyn, reading her beloved Anaïs Nin, or, you know, analyzing dreams. She also has a wicked blog called Displaced Bones, where you can see Jorgensen’s beautiful friends captured through her own lens and read her poetry and various musings.
