December 18, 2010 06:18

PARIS — Paris Vogue on Friday announced that its editor-in-chief, Carine Roitfeld, has decided to leave after a 10-year tenure in which the French fashion monthly became "a worldwide reference and indispensable magazine."

The magazine said on its Web site that Roitfeld's years as the top editor were marked by "constant growth" both in terms of circulation and advertising.Xavier Romatet, the head of Conde Nast France, the French arm of the US publishing house, said he "of course" regrets Roitfeld's decision to leave "even if I understand it." He didn't elaborate.

Paris Vogue said in the online statement Friday that Roitfeld's departure would be effective "in several weeks." It didn't indicate what her future plans are.

Under Roitfeld, French Vogue has lived up to its reputation for pushing the envelope and has continued to be much edgier than its more commercial US counterpart, with lots of nudes and sometimes overtly sex-seeped or disturbing spreads.
