Tom Ford Weighs In On Carine Roitfeld's Resignation

Posted: Updated:

Carine Roitfeld shocked the fashion world on Friday with the announcement of her resignation from French Vogue...and Roitfeld devotees immediately started speculating about what would be next for the Parisian powerhouse. Perhaps some sort of collaboration with Tom Ford?

That guess kinda made sense -- Carine handed over the glossy's holiday issue to Ford and she's constantly praising the designer, previously telling WWD, "I always say, 'Tom has an eye like a scanner.' [....] He is truly multitalented."

However, Cathy Horyn reached out to Ford and here's what he said: "Carine and I have no plans to work together at the moment, and it is nothing that we have even discussed, but of course I think she is brilliant and we are close friends so who knows about the future."

In terms of Carine's replacement at French Vogue, the New York Times reports that a successor will be named early next year. Who's most likely to take the helm? According to the former Creative Director of French Vogue Fabien Baron (who spoke with the Times), the mag's current Fashion Director, Emmanuelle Alt, will probably assume the position.
