carine roitfeld (previously shown here and here) is leaving vogue paris. i'm excited to see what she plans on doing next (because i'm guessing it will have something to do with internet/new media). while i respect her mark on the fashion world, i haven't picked up a paris vogue since i was there in 1997 (prior to her being the editor), so i'd feel like a big ol' phony if i joined the cries of sadness over this announcement. really, i'm happy that the news has led to so many carine mentions/photos on some of my favorite sites in such a short time frame. i always love seeing pictures of her incredible clothes (and shoes!).
