It sounds like WSJ's new editor Kristina O’Neill is off to a good start putting her own spin on the magazine following Deborah Needleman's departure. She's hired a new columnist whose name you might recognize: Karl Lagerfeld.
WWD broke the news yesterday that Vogue's senior accessories editor Filipa Fino suddenly left the magazine after 11 years with the company. The following statement was included in the trade publication's initial report, but has since been mysteriously removed: "Sources hinted that Fino’s departure could allegedly be tied to some inappropriate behavior on her part." There may be some truth to that statement. Multiple sources within Conde Nast and beyond have relayed to us that Fino acted unprofessionally in regards to the fashion closet and expenses. No word yet on who will replace Fino. We reached out to Conde Nast for additional comment, but they declined to elaborate. Fino's exit was only one of many recent shakeups within Conde Nast. Coincidentally another of Conde Nast's senior editors was just axed--W's senior fashion market editor Carolyn Tate Angel.
