Since she was appointed Condé Nast's artistic director in March, Anna Wintour has been making some big moves at the company. And, after finding new editors in chief for both Lucky (Eva Chen) and Condé Nast Traveler (Pilar Guzman), word has it she's turned her attention to Glamour.
In a New York Times profile of Wintour, media reporter David Carr writes that the editrix has been searching for a new creative director for Glamour but wrote that whoever fills this role will report directly to Wintour and not to Cindi Leive, the magazine's editor in chief.
A Condé Nast executive said that reporting structure is "dead wrong." For her part, Wintour wouldn't comment on the matter other than to say, "These are very early days, and I don't want to say anything that would take the focus off the magazines and their editors, whom I hold in very high regard."
Still, since Wintour has been shaking up the mastheads at Condé Nast, both she and the publications she's helping to improve have earned headlines. And Glamour, which has reportedly lost 28 percent of its newsstand sales year over year, is primed to benefit from Wintour's expertise.
But even without Wintour's influence, the magazine has been doing great things: during Fashion Week, Glamour and the CFDA partnered to host a "fashion hackathon" at which teams of engineers and coders built fashion apps. And, earlier this month, the magazine released a zine filled with archival images curated by its fashion director Anne Christensen.
