PARIS VOGUE TAPS ROITFELD FOR TOP SPOT
PARIS — Carine Roitfeld is about to assume the chief editorial slot at Paris Vogue, sources here said Tuesday.
Roitfeld, a stylist who was named to the new post of creative director at the French fashion glossy last month, is expected to succeed Joan Juliet Buck, who last month left the magazine after more than six years at the helm of the Conde Nast title.
Neither Roitfeld nor Gardner Bellanger, president of Conde Nast France, could be reached for comment Tuesday.
The creative hierarchy and direction of Paris Vogue has been the subject of intense speculation since last fall, when Buck left abruptly on a leave of absence and fashion director Marcus Von Ackermann exited.
