Emmanuelle Alt, Carine Roitfeld at Odds

It’s Fashion Week in the city, and what better way to enter the weekend than with some fashion gossip? Okay, sure there are better ways, like winning the lottery or finding a gallon of Nutella in your cupboard, but just stick with us on this.

The New York Times reported yesterday that Emmanuelle Alt and Carine Roitfeld are no longer speaking to each other. The two worked closely together during Roitfeld’s reign as Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue, but when Roitfeld resigned and Alt took her place, something, apparently went wrong.

Both are refusing to explain why their friendship hasn’t made it past the changes, so expect the rumor mills to really churn some good stuff out.

Despite the rift, they both appear to be moving on. When questioned about her departure, Roitfeld was optimistic, explaining, “I’m very sad, but in a way I’m very happy, too.” Alt similarly commented, “I don’t look back and see clouds anywhere. Carine is someone who needs to be free.”

Emmanuelle Alt Named Editor-in-Chief at Vogue Paris

It looks like the rumors were true. Emmanuelle Alt has been tapped to replace Carine Roitfeld as Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris. Alt joined the magazine in 2000, mere months before Roitfeld. Alt had this to say about her new position:

It’s a great honor for me, but also a great pleasure to get to the head of Vogue Paris that I know very well. I will try to develop the incredible potential of Vogue Paris while working with very talented teams.

Alt will work with Deputy Editor Olivier Lalanne, who also oversees the male-targeted Vogue Hommes International.

Okay! Now that the nearly month-long drama has ended, we can all get back to focusing on what really matters: Obama’s toes.

French Vogue Narrows Search For New Editor-In-Chief

Carine Roitfeld turned a few heads last month when she announced that she would be vacating her post as editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris.  A WWD report indicates that sources close to the situation believe French Vogue’s fashion director Emmanuelle Alt is the current clubhouse leader to succeed Roitfeld.  One other name in the mix for the editor-in-chief role is Virginie Mouzat, the fashion editor of French newspaper Le Figaro.

Patricia Goldman Communication, the firm that oversees media relations for Condé Nast France, said that no decision has been made on Roitfeld’s successor.  Her replacement is expected to be named next week.
