Lucky magazine is in the midst of a transformation. Ahead of the launch of its e-commerce site, which could happen as early as next week, Lucky has let go of at least 10 members of its team, including Executive Fashion Director Alexis Bryan Morgan, Senior Credits Editor Joane Amay and Production Director Donna Sollecito, according to multiple sources. They were notified on Thursday.

Lucky spokesperson declined to comment.

The rest of those laid off were largely of the junior level: two fashion assistants, two accessories assistants, a photo assistant and a beauty assistant among them. Another big change: Jean Godfrey June, the glossy's celebrated beauty director, is transitioning into an Editor at Large role. She will continue to write her beauty column for the magazine.

Update: Alexis Bryan Morgan e-mailed the following statement: "I am leaving Lucky for a new role which will be announced shortly." Joane Amay has informed us that she has joined Uptown as a beauty editor.
