Marie Claire announced two new additions to its fashion department yesterday and, not surprisingly, the Hearst Corp.-owned fashion mag now has a Hearst on the masthead.
Socialite and busy magazine intern and contributor Amanda Hearst has been named associate market editor at Marie Claire, where she will report to “Project Runway” staple Nina Garcia, the magazine’s fashion director.
Also reporting to Garcia will be Taylor Tomasi, who has been named style and accessories director, Marie Claire‘s editor-in-chief Joanna Coles announced yesterday. The two will start in their newly created roles on Monday.
A Condé Nast vet, Tomasi was previously the accessories director at Teen Vogue and got her start at W. Fashionista has reported that Teen Vogue will not be replacing her.
And in addition to being an heir to the Hearst fortune, Amanda Hearst has been keeping busy and involved in publishing through internships, like her most recent at Cosmopolitan Spain, “where she helped research and contribute to articles exclusively in the Spanish language,” the company said. We have to admit, she sounds very multi-talented and qualified for the position. But we’re allowed to be jealous that she’s snagged a coveted spot at a family-owned magazine in the midst of the worst job market in recent history, right?
