But the cocktail and

Carine Roitfeld, who has been fingered as the top contender for the editrix-ship of Bazaar's American edition
should Hearst decide to make a move in light of the title's 29% drop at newsstand in the first quarter of this year. Roitfeld has been spending more and more time in New York, where her children live, since her January 2011 exit from French Vogue. Currently, she is styling Barneys New York and Chanel campaigns, and her work with Mario Testino will appear in the September issue of V. Given the consumery Marie Claire and the newsy Elle, maybe
Hearst honcho David Carey is imagining a Bazaar
whose point of differentiation is high-concept fashion and unabashed luxury
with an editor who can finally give American Vogue a run for its money. That, Carine can provide in spades. Another contender for the U.S. Bazaar post is said to be Lucy Yeomans, the editrix of Bazaar U.K.
I would love to see what she would do with Bazaar ... if she is chosen. I wonder if this is a real posibility?
