Alt as well... wow these past two years have been the most dramatic changes in the fashion industry I've ever witness. All of the Big 4 of Vogue are in desperate need of change.

WWD's paywall article mentions Katie Grand being a top candidate.

That might be a good sign... Alexandra was the dark horse 25 years ago!

Indeed the latter will just offer her with more of a creative safeguard to push for certain brands.

On the one hand I feel Katie is improbable because she's a stylist. Journalism is almost the cornerstone of British fashion magazines, a majority of editors in charge of our glossies are journalists first. Then on the other hand I feel CN may want to shake it up and put her in charge, because she's all about youth and 'the future'.
Yes but Carine's tenure changed one or two things about it. Nowadays it will be very difficult for an EIC of a magazine to be the stylist of a top designer or as in Carine's case of many top fashion houses.
That's why Alt had to stop working for Balmain, Marant, Gucci and everything.

I get what you're saying but there's a bit of subtility between the pure business of fashion and a choice of an EIC. It's just a question of pure ethic...CN couldn't risk another Balenciaga-gate today.

BUT, having KG could give a new energy to Vogue UK. VP for example is very about style, a parisian aesthetic and maybe CN would want the same thing for Vogue Uk. I've always shared my frustration about the fact that the magazine didn't reflect the energy of the London Fashion Scene.
She has proved herself with Love (whatever that mean) so she can do it.

At least, she'll leave Miu Miu alone

Grabbing a tiny, specialist corner of the market where you get left alone to continually regurgitate your personal obsessions isn't any real demonstration of the skills needed to shake up a mainstream publication. You're not a fresh breath of air when your approach is to act like a high school club that produces a magazine. It's almost embarrassing, like a 50 year old thinking they've got real kinship with teenagers.

That said, put someone with creativity in a situation with very tight limits, and you start seeing the very best from them.

I am with you to the extent that Vogue UK needs an editor that will reflect the now without alienating its core base. However, I do not see Katie being that person. Her magazine may reflect the now, but also, let's not forget that it also reflects everything that is wrong with the industry today — the obsession with social media being one of them.

She has been given too much of a creative license that I'm scared of what may happen to the magazine when that creativity is suddenly to be restricted within the confines of what Vogue is all about. What I'm more scared about is when that creativity is allowed to be transferred in full to Vogue.

Don't get me wrong though, I admire her courage, but I just don't think she's a match for Vogue.

That is really upsetting, because WWD gets their scoops right, most of the time! Wish someone would post the article in full, how can they even consider Grand, she would be a huge mistake!!!

Sixtdaily, a big fat kiss to you for bringing this over here! Never knew these women were up for her job. Grace Coddington is still a 'wild card' as EIC, lol. But all of them would have made a success of the position, even Procter. If history repeats itself it would be Jo Elvin to replace Alexandra!

I hope WWD does a similar article this year. I'm not sold on Natalie, purely because of her nationality. I think CN will want someone with a 'British' outlook of fashion.

I'd rather have Alexandra for 10 more years than the possibility that Katie Grand might take over.

Um Massenet considers herself British, has lived more than half her life in London, and was just few years ago awarded a Damehood by the Queen (before that an OBE for her services to UK Fashion), she is not an "outsider" in any way!

She is part of the British industry, and understands it 100%, would be a perfect choice, but i still think they might go wtih Grand or Jo.

Emily is just too Political in her connections to get this, and I don't want her to!

my wild card wish for EIC would be Anastasia Barbieri for creativity and rebranding British Vogue -BUT unsure of her journalistic ability (they do have a features editor for that suppose), and doubt someone not British would be considered.

I think Jo is more plausible then most will think. There was a time when Glamour ruled the roost in terms of its circulation. I don't really know much about her but I would assume she's a fairly safe choice.
