Rumor Mill: Meredith Melling Burke and Tabitha Simmons to T, Kate Lanphear to Glamour?

>> After losing the T editorship — which she at one point thought she was a shoo-in for — to Sally Singer, the magazine's fashion director Anne Christensen has resigned from her post. She wrote to WWD during a break from styling for Vogue China: “I’ve had a great 10 years at the Times and T magazines under 2 creative and smart editors: Amy Spindler and Stefano Tonchi. I’m very proud of the work I’ve done there and particularly proud of the upcoming Fall women’s T that I worked very hard on. Now I’m happy to move on to other adventures. I wish Sally Singer the best of luck. She has inherited a wonderful group of people at T.” As for her future: “I do want to explore other magazine possibilities. I like having magazine as a base — for a stylist, it gives you a real voice, and that’s important. And I have a great freelance career that I will continue, as well.”

Who is being eyed to replace her? »

Singer, who assumes control of T next week, reportedly wants to bring in a freelance fashion director-stylist and a full-time market director. Meredith Melling Burke, Vogue's senior market editor, is rumored to be in consideration for the latter role, and Tabitha Simmons is supposedly Singer's favorite to replace Christensen.

The movement this week isn't limited to T: Michael Roberts, as rumored, is stepping down as Vanity Fair's fashion director — although he's staying on as a style editor-at-large — and will be succeeded by Jessica Diehl, who is currently contributing senior style editor at the magazine. And Glamour has reportedly talked with both Marie Claire's fashion director Nina Garcia and Elle's style director Kate Lanphear about the empty fashion director position Xanthipi Joannides left behind last month. Discussions with Garcia are said to have ended shortly after they began, however, and a Glamour spokeswoman said a decision had not yet been made.
