Stefano Tonchi Denies Any Anna Dello Russo Move to W

>> A number of rumors have swirled around, postulating that Stefano Tonchi asked close friend Anna Dello Russo to take the fashion director position at W — she was even spotted in the magazine's offices recently. But Tonchi denied to Daily Front Row that he had asked Dello Russo to replace current W fashion director Alex White (who remains from the pre-Tonchi era): "I love Anna, but she has a great job at Japanese Vogue that she quite likes, and I don’t have any idea to actually move her to New York. She’s a good friend, but I didn’t really even have a conversation with her about this seriously. She’s a fashion director, but she’s not necessarily the one that’s doing shoots and maybe that’s what I’m looking for. Alex is doing that, and that’s what we need at W."

He is working with new photographers for the magazine, however »

Tonchi's tenure has already brought Terry Richardson's work back to W after a lengthy hiatus, and the editor says there's more change to come: "September will be a new place for the magazine, and we’ll have a sort of dark group of photographers. Alex White shot many stories. We have Craig McDean, Mert and Marcus on board, and we’re using some new photographers for us, like Tim Walker, with more joining soon." And as far as he knows, W will remain a monthly magazine: "I pretty much have the next 12 issues scheduled. There’s more than one cover in place."
