In my opinion Katie Grand has proven herself able to be able to take over a very powerful publication. To me, those would include Vogue Paris and Vogue US. I can't really figure out if I think Anna will be leaving anytime soon.

This will probably never happen but how about Grace (don't know her last name, from US Vogue) for the post? After watching The September Issue, it was clear who the real HBIC is, GRACE. She's fierce and chic and talented.

^ Coddington? As much as I like the idea, I don't know if Wintour could afford to lose her. She's the heart of US Vogue.

I have mixed feelings about this. I do love her VP vision but I have to admit it was getting stale. A decade is a good period, and now I am excited/nervous about new blood. I'd prefer if her replacement wasn't Alt; she's too allied with Carine in my mind to provide a new perspective.

As to what Carine will do in the future, I just can't believe she would leave VP unless there was a concrete offer for an editorship somewhere else. I can't see her being satisfied merely styling for (and hence working for) Tom Ford. I think she has a bit of an ego, so she loves being the director of the vision and the attention it commands, so being someone else's employee wouldn't satisfy. I do love her work, and seriously hope she will pop up somewhere else editing a publication that is quite different to VP (HB.US or W, but I don't think the power's that be are quite ready to give up on Tonchi yet). I strongly disagree that she is going to Vogue US; Anna seems to have a very firm grip on that post.

As a side note, I completly agree that Shulman needs to be moved on from Vogue UK. That magazine really needs to be re-vitalised. She has been there since 1992!!

I did not see this coming at all. I feel like someone just died.

But I'm happy she didn't stay in a position that she no longer felt passionate about.

I wonder if she will team up with Tom Ford now?

I think that just as much as Anna depends on Grace for the creative direction of the mag, I think that Grace depends on Anna for her editing eye and for the ability to see fashion for the business... The combination is what makes US Vogue what it is. Anna my say I need another fur to go with that fur, and it may seem weird to Grace, who in turn does it, but then we find that everyone is wearing fur the next season... the excellence is in that partnership

I really think that Carine nixed this concept with her statements. She doesn't want to be an editor... her entire time as an editor to be honest we've known her as a stylist. This is no offense to Carine herself but I believe that she's a very good stylist, and her editing comes after that. This is why she styles many of the shoots for the publication. I feel like she needs someone like Tom to sort of edit... basically an Anna to her Grace.

Seriously, this woman just had to go, she was as bad as Wintour, not just in paper but also in the way she kept manipulating designers and strangling others. Let's just now get rid of Wintour and Della Russo and welcome some fresh new air into these magazines.

I hear you mulletproof!

All these granny-lolita women posing as fashion messiahs have bored the world to tears...

i feel really shocked - i just open net and bum - this information hit me. I just can't imagine VP without her - i mean of course VP will sourvive and maybe it will be even better but for now i am too shocked and sad to think about future of this mag. I just can't really believe it.

i hadn't thought of Sauvé! she's definitely creative, probably a different perspective from carine, very french and very 'voguette'... but wouldnt she be too Ghesquiere?

Balenciaga has been harshly criticized for not allowing magazines and stylists at large to play around with their clothes, and thus forcing them to do head-to-toe looks in their editorials. Is that what we want for VOGUE Paris?

@ Pedro

Nicolas Wisniak is an interesting idea !
very interesting.
She would be a very good EIC for Vogue Paris !

Baron and Templer cannot leave ITW again, non ?
Can they ?

Marie-Amélie Sauvé should be considered for the position,is there a rule that only people who work at the magazine should be named eic, no,.. she worked with VP many years, and her styling is genius, just look at some issues from 2003-2006.
I know she's now a freelance stylist for different magazines(Interview, Another....) and styling major houses, i don't know maybe that's more profitable
i just don't want VP to suffer like VR.

^ I have to agree with you! I don't care on who would be up there next,all I care for is if they can deliver and live up to the expectations and the NAME, the legacy.

I also don't think that this is sabotage like what happened to Aliona. Because unlike that, the successor wasn't annnounced hours after Carine's resignation. Viktoriya was announced sooner than expected

It will be interesting to see who will replace her...it has to be someone who speaks French at least. I think Emmanuelle Alt, Marie Amelie Sauve and Virginie Mouzat are all good contenders. Carine has shown you can be a stylist and great editor-in-chief at the same time.

I've always thought Marie-Amélie Sauvé is the antithesis of Carine - for a French stylist, she sure is conservative and discreet especially if compared to Roitfeld but both are great stylists ofcourse. It would be great to see her come back but I can't imagine her as an EIC though... she'd be too reclusive. A Fashion Director or Senior Editor position will suit her more I think.

I don't have any idea of a possible replacement at the moment but I will also throw some names here... I really hope we can see variety of French and non-French stylists contributing on the upcoming issues. It would be refreshing to see Camille Bidault-Waddington, Joe McKenna, Melanie Ward etc. styling for VP again. And like MulletProof, I would like Ludivine Poiblanc to return too.
