Carine Roitfeld's first project since leaving French Vogue has been revealed and it's not her and Tom Ford taking over Dior. So the overreaching rumors can stop.
Roitfeld will style and even serve as somewhat of an inspiration for Barneys New York Fall 2011 advertising campaign and catalogue. She will even style the store's Madison Avenue windows. All these will be unveiled in September.
Barneys New York tapped Mario Sorrenti to photograph the campaign and catalogue in two locations - New York and Paris. And it is Roitfeld's laid back and cool Parisian attitude which will set the mood. Barneys creative director Dennis Freedman says of Roitfeld, "She is the ideal muse as well as editor. She has a unique and extraordinary ...
It may have been all about Emmanuelle Alt's first solo Vogue Paris issue for the past couple of weeks, but lest be forgotten, Carine Roitfeld's highly anticipated book comes out this fall and can already be pre-ordered on Amazon.
Carine Roitfeld: Irreverent was edited by Purple's Olivier Zahm and written by Roitfeld herself with contributions by Cathy Horyn, Amy Larocca and Anna Wintour. An image-heavy book, it will mostly contain photoshoots Roitfeld did with Mario Testino throughout her career (including The Face and French Glamour). A photoshoot certainly to be included? "The Butcher" editorial that appeared in The Face magazine in 1997, photographed by Testino featuring Eva Herzigova.
Carine Roitfeld: Irreverent
Sun Soaked Daria Werbowy was photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and styled by Emmanuelle Alt for an editorial called Pop Egérie in Vogue Paris March 2011 issue - the last one edited by Carine Roitfeld. The editorial showcases Spring 2011's bold prints and colors (and you know how much we love those) by the likes of Miu Miu, Jil Sander, Prada, Wunderkind and Issey Miyake.

Apparently Carine Roitfeld's decision to resign as the editor in chief of French Vogue wasn't purely Roitfeld's way to express her whimsy and punk rock demeanor.
According to Cathy Horyn, the bosses (and Franca Sozzani) were quite unhappy, to say the least, with French Vogue December 2010 issue guest-edited by Tom Ford. Even advertisers were upset and complained to Condé Nast - and that was it for Roitfeld. She offered to resign as a symbolic gesture and the bosses at Condé Nast took her up on that offer.
Carine Roitfeld tells Horyn her side of the story, "Maybe, maybe. Everybody has an opinion. Before, it wasn’t a problem, and anyway the magazine was doing very well. It’s difficult to work with a ...
Emmanuelle Alt, stylist and French Vogue's current fashion director who has been with the magazine for 10 years was announced today as Carine Roitfeld's replacement as editor-in-chief.
Alt will begin her new duties as French Vogue EIC beginning February 1, Roitfeld's last day, after working as a fashion director in various magazines for the past 20 years.
Xavier Romatet, president of Conde Nast France, said of Alt, "Emmanuelle has all of the professional and personal qualities needed to continue to make Vogue Paris the leading monthly fashion magazine....I give her full confidence to embody and lead this demanding brand and to let is live in all of its different dimensions -- including digitally."
In a rather surprising move Carine Roitfeld announced today that she will leave French Vogue (or Vogue Paris as some call it) at the end of January after ten years on the job. I guess she won't be replacing Anna Wintour anytime soon.
Roitfeld tells Cathy Horyn she doesn't leave the magazine on bad terms. The job simply got to comfortable for her, so she wishes to keep challenging herself and pursue other projects. Roitfeld explains, "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."
Jonathan Newhouse, ceo of Condé Nast International, says of Carine Roitfeld, "Carine herself has become ...
