Looks Like Carine Roitfeld Didn’t Exactly “Resign” From French Vogue

We like to think that we are nice people. So when we heard that French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld was leaving her job for bigger and brighter things, we didn’t second-guess her, but instead said, “Yay! Good for you! Have fun! Mazel tov!” Just because we’re nice like that and aren’t going to make any accusations. Not that we weren’t thinking them … Racked is reporting that there’s quite the rumor going around about Carine’s departure …This pretty much sums it up:

“Our sources tell us the magazine’s parent company was unhappy with all the bad press surrounding Roitfeld’s alleged pay-for-play scandals—this year, alone—demanding huge sums of money for extracurricular consulting gigs and the enormous, public embarrassment of being banned from Balenciaga last season for abusing her position at Vogue. In the latter case, Roitfeld allegedly borrowed Balenciaga preview pieces and sent them to her client, Max Mara, to copy … “

Oh and there was also the little detail left out about her “resignation”—that in fact Vogue France staffers found out about the drama via email, which said that she had been “mise à pied.” Translation? It basically means “suspended” but is really a less direct way of saying “fired.” [Racked]
