Anna Wintour Forces Changes at Glamour

As we expected, Anna Wintour has brought changes to Glamour. The New York Post reports that Anne Christensen, the magazine’s fashion director, has resigned. Christensen had been full-time with Glamour since 2010. She’s apparently going back to freelancing work.

This move wouldn’t be so noteworthy if it weren’t for the fact that Wintour had turned her eyes o’ death to Glamour late last month. Word was that Wintour wasn’t happy with the slumping glossy — newsstand sales dropped 29 percent in the first half of 2013 — and was looking to make changes. Didn’t take long, did it?

While Cindi Leive and a few other top Condé editors are safe from Wintour’s wand of destruction, Christenen’s resignation only proves (yet again) that everyone else should be crossing their fingers.
