Update: Roitfeld spoke to the New York Times' Cathy Horyn. She remarked:
"I had so much freedom to do everything I wanted. I think I did a good job." But she added, "When everything is good, maybe I think it's the time to do something else." She expects to complete issues through March. She said she was not sure what she would do after that. "I have no plan at all," she said.
Previously: French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld is leaving the magazine, according to a news post on vogue.fr. Her departure will be effective in several weeks and she hopes to pursue personal projects. She has been with the magazine for 10 years.

And President of Condé Nast France Xavier Romatet remarked, "Of course, I regret Carine's decision, even if I understand it.
