Carine Roitfeld's new job...

GLOBAL BAZAAR

As of late, the fashion world has been revolving around Carine Roitfeld and her every-precise-sexy-slithery-Franco-American move... 

Women's Wear Daily, recently helped to  break the news about Roitfeld and her newly created position at Hearst, as Global Fashion Director of Harper's Bazaar magazine.

According to the newspaper, this position was created -from scratch- specifically for Roitfeld (who, by the way, has been publishing her own magazine, CR Fashion Book, since September 2012).

In response to the controversy surrounding Roitfeld's appointment, Hearst's CEO, Duncan Edwards said, “Of course, the magazine [Bazaar] belongs to Hearst, not to Glenda,” but my question is, when your employer starts to pull stunts like this, isn't it in a person's best interest (read: Glenda) to be wise and consider a safety-game-plan... or even, a new job?! *cough, cough* I'm just sayin...

My thought is, with Roitfeld in, she can bring an edge -back- to Bazaar, and FINALLY give Vogue the competition it rightfully deserves, on-and-off the newsstands! And with her title, Hearst is giving Roitfeld free-reign to institute at least 3-4 fashion editorials, per month, which will be published in Bazaar and ALL of its international versions! WOWSERS!!!

Such a move, does suggest that Edwards is -of course- up to something... and my theory is that either Stephen Gan will soon be out (as Bazaar's current, Creative Director), or Glenda Bailey will soon be out (as Bazaar's current, Editor in Chief)?!

Of her new position at Bazaar, Roitfeld clears up any rumors (which haphazardly supports my theory), by saying, “I’m always independent. No boss.” YIKES!!!
