It’s finally here, Carine Roitfeld’s final issue for Vogue Paris. The former editor-in-chief announced her resignation in December and had the fashion world buzzing with rumors of her departure and who would succeed her. Rumors didn’t last long about her successor, Emmanuelle Alt stepped in to fill her shoes and has already begun work for the next issue, which features Gisele Bundchen as its cover model.
Roitfeld’s final issue has newcomer Saskia de Brauw as the cover model. The March cover was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot and will probably become a coveted issue for many fashion lovers. The cover is beautiful and subtle, the model posing with her mouth agape. Maybe not one of Carine’s greatest covers, but definitely something that would grab your attention.
Rumors are still circulating though about Roitfeld’s departure. Fashion industry insiders have suggested that Roitfeld was fired for her the bad press that had surrounded her recently, specifically being banned from from Balenciaga shows and LVMH incident in which they threatened to remove all of their ads after French Vogues December/January issue featured a questionable spread.
Still, Roitfeld has other things planned and claims to leave the magazine on good terms. There’s no doubt that whatever the former editor decides she will land on her stylish feet and comeback with a bang.Tags: balenciaga, Carine Roitfeld, fashion, fashion editor, french vogue, LVMH, vogue paris
