Condé Nast to Launch French Vanity Fair

Beginning next year, Condé Nast will publish a French version of Vanity Fair. According to The New York Times, almost all of the content will be original, and the magazine will be edited by Anne Boulay, the current editor-in-chief of French GQ.

Other members of the French Vanity Fair staff include:

The journalist and television personality Michel Denisot, whom Mr. Newhouse called a French mix of Barbara Walters and Mike Wallace, will be the editorial director. Condé Nast also hired Le Figaro’s fashion editor, Virginie Mouzat, to run the fashion and lifestyle coverage and Hervé Gattegno from Le Point to oversee investigative coverage.

There will be 25 full time staffers once hiring is complete.

Xavier Romatet, president and chief executive of Condé Nast France, said the launch represented a challenge. “That is one of the biggest challenges we have, how to have the French touch,” he explained to the Times. “We need to have the French point of view. We need to be much more close to the French culture, the French people, the French way of life.”

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.
