Carine Roitfield is BLACKLISTED from Balenciaga

Just got the news that French Vogue ed-in-chief, Carine Roitfield have been blackliste by the House of Balenciaga (via. WWD)

"We’re blacklisted, ...It’s too bad, it’s a beautiful house and it’s French. I hope that it’s not forever.”

WWD further reports that Roitfeld "noted Balenciaga no longer advertises in the magazine or lends it clothes, but stopped short of giving any reason for the rift.

“Ask them, she said.

Fashionologie notes that "a commenter on Fashionista noted that it may have something to do with Balenciaga's stylist, Marie-Amélie Sauvé, who is no longer styling for the magazine."

I suppose Total Management, who represent Sauvé, should update her profile; which reads:

"Marie Amelie is a regular contributor to American, French and italian Vogue..."


"In addition to her editorial work, she consults for several fashion houses, including Balenciaga, where she has developed an intense collaboration with Nicolas Ghesquière..."

(via. Fashion Copious)

What a devastating and crazy news! Balenciaga is FRENCH and you cannot just do that to Carine!
