Sad to see Cindy go. Her magazine hasn't been in the best shape for the last few years, but it's undeniable that she was a good editor.
And wow... 2 changes in CN in a span of what.. 2 weeks?
Wow, what a year we're having!! It's like a mass exodus. Cindy's been doing well before the last revamp. Like many on here, I liked what she did. Glamour was very refined and sophisticated. Remember the Kerry/SJP/Michelle Obama, Karlie, Kim K, covers. It's a pity she switched to the messy art direction.
So, shakeups over the past two years:
US Town & Country
US Harper's Bazaar
Vogue Mexico & Latin America
Harper's Bazaar Spain
The majority coming from the US.......
As much as I find some of Anna's work to be subpar... I don't want her to leave just yet. I actually don't see anyone at the moment doing her job other than her. If that makes sense.
That's exactly why she needs to go. American Vogue may be the original Vogue and most successful Vogue, but it's also the dullest and most predictable Vogue. Anna has been on autopilot creatively for years and years. The magazine needs a fresh eyes.
I don't really agree. Up until she left, Alexandra's Vogue was more predictable than Anna's I always felt.
Yeah Anna gets a lot of flak but as Mirand Priestley said.. No one can do what I do! Whatever she's doing is obviously working because the cover of Vogue is probably more coveted than ever before. There was a time when being on the cover of Rollingstone and. Vanity Fair was just as desirable but now it's just Vogue. She's usurped the actresses from VF and the popstars from Rollingstone to become the only cover that still matters. She's even usurped major policians: Hillary, Theresa May, The Trudeaus.
Someone else might be a better "fashion editor" and make it more exciting fashion wise but don't get it confused Anna has brought a power to the brand that it didn't have before.

Just the fact that Joanna Coles is mentioned there bothers me.
Hmmm... the question is, would these names have the same courage as Graydon? Or will they water down VF?
Thanks for posting, MissMagAddict!
I have a feeling it'll be a woman. But is Joanna Coles' name doing among the dark horses? Please. As if Janice Min isn't enough as the frontrunner. Don't quite know who the lesser of three unnecessary evils are between Coles, Min and Nelson. And anyway, Coles is a power woman who innovate as much as Anna. No way will she allow herself to be dictated by Anna Wintour. On the one hand I think it's a far-fetched rumour, but on the other I can see Coles jumping ships. Especially since Robbie Myers will join the Hearst top exec ranks and, as many can tell, Myers is very ambitious for acclaim and could end up a huge adversary for Coles.
Funny how 'impressing Anna' is one of the prerequisites which just furthers the point that Graydon wasn't prepared to bow down.
I'm not too sure who to place my bets on, but it better be someone attuned to British culture or else we should get our own edition.
Not a fashion magazine, but Rollingstone has just been put up for sale by its founding editor Jann Wenner. The changing of the old guard continues.
Apparently Janice Min is in New York for a series of meetings with CN. The consensus is that she's now the frontrunner to replace Graydon. Sigh!
Poor Cindy, always the bridesmaid. I wonder who the actress was?
Thanks for the article, MissMagAddict!
Even though the magazine seems to be doing well, I still cannot warm to him personally. His style or direction. Whatever it is, I'm don't really 'get' it. But time will tell.
Glenda said in her instagram that the November issue is the Special Anniversary for Bazaar.
I'm just hoping it's her swan song. Is there any other editor The Fashion Spot has wanted axed as much as Glenda?!
