I received my February Vogue in the mail yesterday, and I’ve got to hand it to them, it was a fantastic issue. There were some lovely little tidbits in there that I’m happy to share:
Meredith Melling Burke is no longer the editor of the Index pages. Fashion market editor Jessica Sailer has taken on the task of putting together those back pages. As the Index is one of my favorite sections in Vogue, I noticed that MMB’s byline was missing in the January issue. This time around, AW announces in her editor’s letter that Sailer is newly in charge. MMB seems to be focusing more on the web these days. We hear from the inside that she’s the one everyone at Vogue.com is really reporting to, not Candy.
In his profile of Proenza Schouler, fashion news director Mark Holgate says that the duo is about to sign a deal with Andrew Rosen, Theory CEO and Rag & Bone investor. Finally, finally, finally someone is putting this good stuff in print! (And not just on Page 6.) Fashionista first reported that Rosen and the Proenza boys were in talks nearly a year ago. I can’t wait to see their partnership come to fruition.
Really? When writing about Kate Middleton in her editor’s letter, Anna brings up Blake Lively. Again. Is she just messing with us?
