nina saying sayonara?

Television_jamie_15099219_600 >> Is Nina Garcia turning down the editor-at-large position and severing all ties from Elle after a 13 year tenure?  She was spotted leaving the Hearst Tower and avoiding all eye contact earlier today. 

This is especially notable, since Nina was reportedly courted for a director's position at Harper's Bazaar in 2005.  When contacted for comment about her presence at Hearst today, Nina downplayed the possibility of a position at Hearst, but did say that she was doing freelance work . . .
