FashionBytes: I want to be a Roitfeld!

So today’s column is essentially going to be an homage to the legendary Carine Roitfeld, who just today stepped down as editor of Paris Vogue after ten years of service, to concentrate on personal projects. From model to stylist to Tom Ford‘s muse to becoming (pretty much) the most influential and creative fashion editor in history, in the words of Jonathan Newhouse, CEO of Condé Nast International, “It is impossible to overstate Carine’s powerful contribution to Vogue and to the fields of fashion and magazine publishing.”

Carine’s latest move was inviting Tom Ford to guest edit the December 2010 issue of Vogue Paris, one of the coolest and most talked about issues to date. Roitfeld is set to leave the magazine in January and a replacement will be announced in the next couple of weeks. Although this may be shocking news (it has been trending on Twitter!), I am definitely excited to see what such an amazing talent will bring to 2011 with her personal projects.
