did Carine Roitfeld really quit French Vogue?

As I reported, Carine Roitfeld left French Vogue. But is this true? Or did she really get fired.. aka "mise à pied"? Several sources have suggested that Conde Nast was not impressed with the bad press from the editor-in-chief, including the following:

  • Earlier this year, she was blacklisted from Balenciaga. Apparently she helped Max Mara knock off their designs.
  • LVMH's Bernard Arnault was also not pleased with the latest Vogue Paris issue. There were not enough LVMH credits, and he did not think that featuring young girls in the editorial was very tasteful. He even threatened to pull their ads out of the next issue.
  • Also, the employees of French Vogue said that they received an email on the Friday stating the Roitfield was "mise à pied", really meaning, she was fired.
Hmm.. I would believe that. Who would leave that position after trying to build it up for years? <3
