We're not the only ones worried about Elle's massive shake-up this month. Project Runway's allegedly looking to partner with a new magazine for season six, which, by the way, will officially be taped in Los Angeles. WWD reports their choice is likely to be Marie Claire which we find strange considering Marie Claire isn't exactly a fashion authority. But it is owned by the same parent company as Lifetime, which can't hurt their chances. The collaboration, however, is likely to do more for the magazine than for the show. In other Project Runway news, one of our favorite, and arguably most successful, designer alumns, Alison Kelly, is launching a new line for Brooklyn boutique Alter and they're throwing a shopping launch party this Thursday night on Greenpoint's Franklin Avenue. Christian, meet Alison.
ELLE's Kyle Anderson To Replace Taylor Tomasi Hill as Accessories Director At Marie Claire
Ever since we found out Taylor Tomasi Hill was leaving Marie Claire for Moda Operandi, we've been wondering who would fill her (designer) shoes over at MC. And now we know: Kyle Anderson, formerly ELLE's Senior Accessories Editor, will be taking over as Accessories Director at Marie Claire, starting next week. "I think after six years of working in the accessories department at ELLE, now is the right time to move on to a position where I can contribute more to the look of a magazine," Anderson told us in an email. "And for me, working for Nina Garcia again and Marie Claire is the ideal fit." Nina gave Kyle his start at ELLE six years ago and since then the two have remained close--back in August Kyle told Smart Chic Style: "I owe everything and all of my last six years of experiences at ELLE to [Nina] for taking a chance on me."
