As if her resume wasn't long enough!
On Thursday, Hearst Magazines announced Carine Roitfeld will be joining the Harper's Bazaar family as their Global Fashion Director.
As part of her new role, the former editor-in-chief of the Conde Nast-owned Vogue Paris will collaborate with the mag's creative director Stephen Gan on various stories for Bazaar's 26 international publications.
Duncan Edwards, president and CEO of Heart Magazines International, said of the exciting news:
"This collaboration marks the first time anything like this has been done and we’re very excited about what Carine will bring to Bazaar editions around the world. She is a visionary in the fashion world and we are so happy to be working with her."
While David Carey, president of Hearst Magazines, added:
"Carine is one of the fashion world’s most influential tastemakers and we look forward to seeing what she does with Bazaar. Her contributions will help lead the company to new heights on the creative front."
Of course, no one is more excited about the job than Carine herself, who said:
"I am thrilled to be contributing to Bazaar, a brand with a rich history of creativity. Working with Stephen and a roster of talented photographers will be a wonderful collaboration and one that will give these stories a truly global audience."
We'll get our first taste of Carine and Stephen's collab starting in March 2013.
Ugh. So close, yet so far!
