Memo Pad: Roitfeld Successor Coming Soon... 'Voice' Columnist Is Cut...

Vogue Paris' fashion director Emmanuelle Alt is on the short list to become the glossy's new editor in chief.

FRENCH TOAST: Could history repeat itself and see a fashion stylist helming Vogue Paris? A source said the title’s fashion director, Emmanuelle Alt, is in pole position to become the new editor in chief and succeed Carine Roitfeld, who revealed last month that she is stepping down after a decade at the glossy. Alt could not immediately be reached for comment.

To be sure, the field seems to have greatly narrowed. Speculation is also rife that Virginie Mouzat, the brainy, statuesque fashion editor of French daily Le Figaro, is still in the running. Reached on Tuesday, Mouzat declined all comment. A Condé Nast spokeswoman in London also had no comment. Patricia Goldman Communication, which does media relations for Condé Nast France, insisted a decision has yet to be made about who will replace Roitfeld. According to industry sources, however, an announcement about French Vogue’s new editor is expected next week. — Miles Socha and Samantha Conti
