The news, which broke appropriately in a column in VanityFair.com's Hive, is as columnist David Kamp wrote, "A bittersweet day: the Grexit is upon us".

Carter became editor of the magazine, known for its coverage of celebrities, Hollywood, media and politics, in 1992.

Carter's decision to leave the magazine came up earlier this year when his contract was expired, but like so many others, the election of his nemesis Donad Trump reinvigorated his desire to stick around. Carter called Trump as "short-fingered vulgarian" in Spy Magazine during the 1980s, which prompted Trump to respond by sending Carter an image of his hands.

In his latest "editor's letter" published online this week, Carter said the verdict was already in on Trump's presidency. Along with the magazine's star-studded Oscars party, the issue is to Hollywood what Vogue's September issue is to the world of high fashion.

"I've loved every moment of my time here and I've pretty much accomplished everything I've ever wanted to do", Carter said in a statement, adding that he was "now eager to try out this "third act" thing".
