Jasmine Chang Joins Good Housekeeping as Fashion Director

Rosemary Ellis, editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping, announced today in a press release that Jasmine Chang will join the magazine as Fashion Director, effective April 11.

Chang spent the previous eight years as Executive Fashion Editor at O, The Oprah Magazine. She also served as Senior Fashion Editor at Family Circle and Fashion Editor at Self magazine.

But Chang’s coolest gig ever came before all of that, when she styled Spinal Tap for their 1992 tour. We’re really hoping that she brings some of that flavor into the world of Good Housekeeping. It could only be a good thing.

Good Housekeeping Seeks Style Guru for Fashion Director Gig

Attention style experts: Good Housekeeping is on the hunt for a new fashion director to oversee the production of all fashion pages for the monthly Hearst title. The position is located in New York City.

If hired, you will be responsible for conceptualizing and pitching stories; market work; and working with the photo department to coordinate and produce photo shoots. The fashion director will also contribute to Good Buzz and other sections of the magazine that include fashion content, while styling non-fashion stories, as well.

The mag doesn’t list any specific requirements for the job, but it’s safe to assume that candidates should have plenty of consumer magazine experience under their belts, with a focus on (and passion for) fashion and lifestyle. If you can set yourself apart from the rest, you’re in. Interested? Apply here.

No Hope For Newsstand Sales?

050409194655newsstand.jpg

According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, as quoted in The New York Times today, newsstand sales for magazines dropped 9.1 percent last year, with overall subscriptions 2.23 percent. Popular individual titles fell anywhere from 41 percent (W magazine) to 30 percent (Good Housekeeping).

But this isn’t all bad news: the titles that have done well in the past year, that have actually seen increases, are niche titles like Off-Road Adventures, which saw a 483 percent increase in circulation, and Rodale titles like Men’s and Women’s Health. One reason for this is that these types of print publications cater to a specific die-hard fan that may not be as willing to trade on free content.

Huffington Post: Days after New York Times reporter Peter Baker criticized the addition of reporters from The Huffington Post and Talking Points Memo to the White House pool, Arianna Huffington shot back at him, calling his recent coverage of President Barack Obama‘s decision on Afghanistan “stenography.” “Perhaps he should spend less time worrying about that and more time worrying that his own reportorial ‘scrupulous passivity’ so easily leads to the insertion of the administration’s desired spin into the reporting on momentous decisions of war and peace,” Huffington said in response to Baker’s criticism of the pool appointments.

Marie Claire Promotes Deputy Editor

Abigail-Pesta-Portrait-new-sm.jpgAbigail Pesta has been named editor-at-large of Marie Claire, one of Hearst Corporation‘s women’s titles. Pesta had previously been deputy editor at the glossy, after a switch from Glamour magazine, where she also served in an editorial capacity.

Pesta was smart to make the move, as Glamour is owned by Condé Nast, which has delivered so many cutbacks recently that they barely have any staff left to promote. And while Hearst has had to make some concessions last year and earlier this year (cutting Good Housekeeping staffers, cutting back permalancers, and the folding of CosmoGirl), it has saved the publisher from any big losses so far this year, at least in comparison to many of its competitors.

Pesta’s new role will involve “additional writing and traveling for the magazine,” which sounds like a pretty stellar way to make a living, if you ask us.
