Johnny Depp Graces Cover of Interview

Johnny Depp is Interview’s latest cover star. It’s a nice get for Keith Pollock, the magazine’s relatively new editor-in-chief.

Inside the issue, Iggy Pop poses questions to the 50-year-old actor and we discover that both men enjoyed drinking Boone’s Farm back in the day. Somehow that makes us respect them a bit more.

Interview used Bruce Weber to shoot the cover, which features Depp holding a teddy bear. What are the odds the stuffed animal is Depp’s? We say fairly high.

Keith Pollock Named EIC of Interview

Keith Pollock has been named the new editor-in-chief of Interview. Pollock comes to the magazine from DuJour, where he served as the magazine’s found editor since 2012. Prior to that, Pollock served as editorial director of Elle.com.

At Interview, Pollock will report to Fabien Baron and Karl Templer, the glossy’s editorial director and creative director, respectively.

Pollock told WWD that he hadn’t thought about leaving DuJour, but after conversations with Baron, Templer and others, he “realized it would be a great and fitting opportunity.”

Elle Adds Website Editor

Elle has named Amina Akhtar Executive Editor of Elle.com, according to WWD. Akhtar succeeds Keith Pollock, who left Elle to join Du Jour, a luxury publication from Jason Binn.

Akhtar has been in the fashion writing business for more than a decade. She was most recently Fashion Director for FashionETC.com, but prior to that she held positions at NYMag.com, Style.com and NYTimes.com.

Jason Binn’s Du Jour Adds Editorial, Sales Staffers

Du Jour, the magazine from Jason Binn intended for the .003 percenters of the world, has started to hire the necessary staff to publish a title that will probably annoy anyone who doesn’t swim around in gold coins.

Keith Pollock and Nicole Vecchiarelli will be Co-Editors-in-Chief. Pollock was most recently with Elle.com and Vecchiarelli comes to Du Jour from InStyle magazine, where she worked as a Senior Editor.

Alan Katz will also join Du Jour as its Chief Revenue Officer. Katz is a veteran of the publishing world, having worked at New York, Vanity Fair, Interview and more. Katz comes to the magazine from Direct Brands. Cynthia Lewis, the title’s new Vice President of Sales, will work closely with Katz. She most recently founded Create Lucrative Relationships.

Finally, Max McDonnell will serve as Du Jour’s Associate Vice President of Product Development. McDonnell was formerly CEO Lonnymag.com, an online shelter publication.
