Au Revoir!

As many of you might already know,Carine Roitfeld has resigned as editor-in-chief of French Vogue and will soon be replaced by Emmanuelle Alt.Roitfeld quit in December of last year afer she faced much criticism for a fashion editorial featuring minor girls.So now the woman who came up with the ingenious idea of shaving the Gucci logo into a female model's pubic hair and inspired the character that threatened to take over Miranda Priestly's job in 'The Devil Wears Prada' has fallen from grace and how.It's funny how one wrong move can wipe away years of hard(might i add groundbreaking)work.Life sure can be a bitch at times,Ms. Roitfeld would most certainly agree!

Bloggers and online communities have been having a field day with this major folly of hers:

Her second last cover for French Vogue featuring gap toothed beauty Lara Stone.


  1. I think her firing was justified. There is no justification for taking take pics of minor girls in full make up and sexualised manner. Just becoz its art/fashion, doesnt make it right.

  2. haha i love the illustrations. wintour must be happy with this.

  3. yup.she did make a major error in jugdement,so the firing is justified(i guess).
    and haha you betcha,wintour must indeed be over the moon!
