On the heels of news that Harper's Bazaar's Kristina O’Neill would be replacing Deborah Needleman at WSJ--and that T Magazine's Sally Singer was headed to Vogue (after Needleman replaced her), comes reports of even more editorial shakeups. Seriously, do they ever stop?
A Hearst spokesperson has confirmed that both Kate Davidson Hudson and Stefania Allen, Elle's Accessories Director and Senior Accessories Editor, respectively, have left the company, leaving the magazine with essentially no senior accessories editors.
There's no word yet on where Hudson or Allen are going, or why they left the magazine, though we have a feeling it might have something to do with the recent relaunch of Elle Accessories. At the time of the relaunch, The Daily reported that the Elle Accessories masthead would be the exact same as the current Elle masthead--which means no new hires were made to take on the additional workload the twice-yearly mag would have created for the Accessories team.
We've reached out to Hudson and Allen for comment and are waiting to hear back.
