    Carine Roitfeld has picked up her first magazine gig since stepping down from her decade-long tenure as editor-in-chief of French Vogue last year.

    Via Twitter, V Magazine editor Derek Blasberg confirmed a Page Six report that Roitfeld would collaborate with the magazine on upcoming projects:

    Rumor CONFIRMED: Carine Roitfeld is working with us @VMagazine, starting with some epic, iconic, killer contributions in the September issue

    Page Six reported that the ex-editrix will have V Magazine's September cover and fashion spread, which would be her second high-level post-Vogue project (the first being a fall styling partnership with Barneys announced earlier this year). Both projects are right in line with plans Carine expressed, to use her new freedom to dabble in everything from advertising to editorial. In a March interview with WWD, Carine even hinted that she wouldn't stay far from the glossies for long:

    I am sure that one day I will, even if it's not my own magazine, do special stories for magazines and maybe something on the Internet. I have projects and opportunities coming.
