OMG. I cant believe this. This morning ,I sat down with my cup of tea, going through my twitter updates,  and all I could see was was “CARINE ROITFELD LEAVES VOGUE PARIS” flashing out of my screen.  My cup of tea still lies on the table half full. To me, it was almost inevitable to even imagine Carina ever stepping down from her position. She is like the “goddess”  of the fashion industry.

There was still so much more left to gain from her. She will be truly missed. Lets hope her departure doesn’t prove to be a huge setback to the fashion world.

After 10 glorious years spent as the editor in chief of Vogue Paris ,Carine Roitfeld decides to leave the magazine. And the worst part is, her departure will be effective in a few weeks.

Carine Roitfeld now wants to concentrate on her personal projects that has been lined up for quiet sometime.

Now the burning questions lies, who will replace her???

Check out the official statement given by French Vogue here
