Carine Roitfeld exits Parisian style bible and bids VOGUE adieu...
Roitfeld has decided to call it quits in a personal move to focus on various, other projects, after 10 years of dedicated service to American VOGUE's chic, sister-magazine.
Last month (on December 17th, 2010), Roitfeld announced her retirement from the publication, and simultaneously, Condé Nast (the owner/publisher of the VOGUE brand), issued an official statement from Jonathan Newhouse (CEO of Condé Nast International), addressing the issue.
Newhouse says, "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, advertising and editorial success...

"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. Carine will be deeply missed. I am extremely grateful to her for what she has achieved."

Replacing Roitfeld, is Emmanuelle Alt, former Fashion Director for VOGUE Paris.
Having served under Roitfeld for 10 years, Alt is already keen on the aesthetics that Condé Nast (and Newhouse), has come to expect from the brand.
