Roitfeld explained to WWD why she decided to leave Vogue Paris: "When we published our 90th anniversary issue in October, it felt almost like a double anniversary for me. I knew I wasn’t really going to stay much longer. I think it’s good to get out while you’re ahead, and I think right now, Vogue is outstanding. I’m very proud of it. I have an exceptional team." Furthermore, Roitfeld stated having issues regarding a structured work environment: "I have always been a freelancer, so when I was hired 10 years ago, I found it very difficult to have an office, an assistant, a schedule, fixed vacations. But at the same time, it was such a huge job that I said yes. It’s been an incredible adventure, but maybe in my heart and soul, I am more of a freelancer. I’m surprised I even stuck it out this long, but what made me stay is having a boss like Jonathan [Newhouse], who is an incredible man who gave me total freedom, and God knows I pushed the boundaries."

Au Revoir Carine
Carine Roitfeld announced her resignation from Vogue Paris — effective the end of January — last Friday leaving everyone in a tizzy. Many speculated that Roitfeld's next project would be with Tom Ford, but the designer spoke up claiming that nothing is currently in the works: "Carine and I have no plans to work together at the moment, and it is nothing that we have even discussed, but of course I think she is brilliant, and we are close friends so who knows about the future."
