Another day, another round of layoffs at Condé Nast, this time at Glamour. Several sources have reported approximately 10 people have been cut over the course of Thursday; affected employees reportedly include Jillian Davison, Fashion Director, Sasha Iglehart, Deputy Fashion Editor and Cady Drell, Sex and Relationships Editor.

The reported reason for the layoffs is "restructuring" under newly appointed editor-in-chief Samantha Barry

We have reached out to Condé Nast for a statement and received the following from a spokesperson, which implies Vanity Fair has also been affected by layoffs: "Vanity Fair and Glamour are taking the first steps in reshaping their teams to reflect the new editorial directions of the brands — with new additions and initiatives to be announced shortly. The priority for each is to create quality and provocative content across all platforms equally, embracing the next generation of readers and viewers." 

UPDATE, Thursday, Feb. 15, 2:25 p.m.: As indicated in Condé Nast's statement, layoffs have also hit Vanity Fair. Sources indicated that affected employees include Chris Garrett, Managing Editor, Jane Sarkin, Features Editor and Aimée Bell, Deputy Editor, as well as assistants. This follows the appointment of new editor-in-chief Radhika Jones
