Jillian Davison Named Glamour Fashion Director

Jillian Davison has been named fashion director of Glamour. Davison, who we imagine must be Anna Wintour approved, is succeeding Anne Christensen, who resigned last week.

Davison comes to Glamour from Vogue Australia, where she had served as creative director since 2012. Prior to that, Davison served as fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar Australia.

“As a longtime admirer of Jill’s work, I’m thrilled to bring her energetic point of view to Glamour,” said Cindi Leive, editor of Glamour, in a statement. “She has a real vision for American fashion, and will steer our fashion coverage forward during an exciting time of dynamic growth for the brand.”

Davison’s appointment is effective in January.

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.
