Matt Winkler Steps Down at Bloomberg News (FishbowlNY)
More changes at Bloomberg News, this time involving veteran editor-in-chief Matt Winkler, who is stepping down. Winkler has been editor of Bloomberg News for the past 24 years. Capital New York John Micklethwait, editor-in-chief of The Economist, will succeed Winkler, who co-founded the news service with Michael Bloomberg back in 1990. Micklethwait has edited The Economist since 2006. He will leave the company at the end of January. Politico / Dylan Byers on Media The Economist is now searching for a replacement for Micklethwait, who joined the mag in 1987, a process that will very likely take several weeks. NYT On Tuesday, Bloomberg News named Winkler an editor-in-chief emeritus. One executive at Bloomberg, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said the change was a year in the making, but had accelerated since Bloomberg’s return to the company in September. Another Bloomberg executive said it was very much a joint decision based on the need for a cultural change in the news division, and that Bloomberg and Winkler remained close. HuffPost As editor-in-chief emeritus, Winkler will work with Bloomberg “on strategic initiatives, conducting high-profile interviews of global newsmakers and bringing his insights and expertise to the most important and market-moving stories.” Micklethwait will oversee editorial “across all Bloomberg platforms, including its news, newsletters, magazines, opinion, television, radio and digital properties,” according to a release. Bloomberg Media Group CEO Justin Smith, who is overseeing new consumer-facing sites for the company, like Bloomberg Politics, will continue reporting to Michael Bloomberg.

Anna Wintour Admits KimYe Vogue Cover Was Publicity Stunt

Anna Wintour has admitted that the infamous Vogue cover that featured Kanye West and Kim Kardashian was simply a way to get people talking about the magazine. Fashionista reports that while speaking at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Wintour gave the couple one hell of a backhanded compliment:

Amy Adams Lands First Vogue Cover

Amy Adams is your newest Vogue cover girl. This is her first time gracing the title’s cover.

Adams was photographed by Annie Leibovitz and profiled by Jonathan Van Meter. The 40-year-old actress is wearing a Valentino dress that Vogue described as “Price upon request.” That means it’s like at least $100.

Retired Fashion Model Recalls Her Glorious Life

PanAmAirwaysLogoThose were the pre-9/11 flying days. Hildegarde Archuleta, an 85-year-old one-time fashion model with a truly resplendent name, is today happily retired in the Palm Springs area. The Southern California native recently spoke with the Desert Sun about her career, which began when she replied to a post-World War II Vogue talent search.

Archuleta went on to cross paths with Alfred Hitchcock, Frank Sinatra, Jack Warner and many more. She also recalls in the article the thrilling way her professional life took off:

She became a Vogue model in her mid-20s and that first trip to the Big Apple is a favorite memory. It was her first time flying, and the Pan Am pilot invited her into the cockpit.

Style.com Changes Reporting Structure

Style.com is getting swept under the Vogue rug. Well, maybe that’s a bit dramatic. According to WWD, the site’s publisher Matt Rice and will now report to Vogue’s publisher Susan Plagemann. Likewise, Style.com’s editor — Dirk Standen — will now report to Vogue’s editor, Anna Wintour.

The move seems to indicate that Condé Nast execs aren’t too pleased with Style.com. At the very least, they want to give the site a kick in the pants via changes in content and strategy.

As WWD reports, a Style.com/Vogue combo is actually quite retro:

Fourteen years ago, the site was established as the online home of Vogue and W magazines. But Wintour lobbied for years for her own site for Vogue, and so, in 2010, Style.com was pushed out of Condé Nast to Fairchild Fashion Media. It was shuffled back to Condé this summer, when Fairchild was sold to Penske Media Corp.

Hillary Clinton Might Get Another Vogue Cover

hillary-clinton-vogue-1998Hillary Clinton — who is definitely maybe probably 100 percent running for president in 2016 — is rumored to be getting another Vogue cover. Clinton appeared on the cover once before, back in 1998.

According to The New York Daily News, Clinton and Vogue’s editor Anna Wintour were recently spotted studying clothes at Michael Kors’ studio.

“Anna certainly doesn’t go to every fitting for the magazine, but for a subject like Hillary, she’d be involved in every aspect of the story,” a “fashion insider” told the Daily News. “She’d definitely need to approve the look.”

Despite the mountain of evidence, a Vogue spokesperson denied that the shopping trip meant anything. ”Anna just went by to say hello to Hillary,” said the spokesperson. “We have no plans for a cover.”

Right. Just like Clinton has no plans on running for president! We’re on to you, sister!

Vogue China Cover Features Apple Watch

Vogue China’s latest cover features model Liu Wen and — more importantly — the Apple Watch. We think the Watch is completely unnecessary and rather ugly, but apparently Condé Nast does not. In fact, Vogue China’s editor, Angelica Cheung, thinks readers will love it.

“I just thought that they combined technology, style and functionality and were very modern and, therefore, perfect accessories for the modern-day woman which is what the Vogue China woman is about,” Cheung told Business of Fashion.

Well, that’s one opinion.

Vogue Article Inspires Eva Longoria-Produced TV Show

vogue-logo-editEva Longoria’s production company — UnbeliEVAble Entertainment (yes, it’s really called that) — is joining forces with Condé Nast Entertainment to bring a political drama to ABC. The show was inspired by a Jacob Weisberg Vogue article, which profiled twins Julián and Joaquin Castro.

The yet-to-be-named project will follow the lives of Chris and Alex Reyes, two “Latino golden boys” who are best friends, yet political rivals. “The drama explores the American dream and the lies, blackmail and manipulation it takes to rise to the top of power in Texas — and perhaps someday DC,” reports Deadline.

Lies! Blackmail! Manipulation! Golden boys! Please inform your parents about this news.

Rich People Mad at Other Rich People

Vogue contributing editor Lauren Santo Domingo and her billionaire husband, Andres Santo Domingo, are pissing off their Gramercy Park neighbors. According to the New York Post, the couple is having a geothermal well installed under their home, and the drilling is “deafening.

A geothermal well, for those who are interested, is a heating/cooling system that you cannot afford.

Installing a well of this nature requires a 1,600-foot hole, and that means a lot of loud drilling. Santo Domingo’s neighbors are furious. One person told the Post it was “unconscionable” for the couple not to consider the noise.

The head of the Gramercy Park Block Association added, “People are calling me in the middle of the night saying they can’t cross the traffic. They should have been working with us to address safety.”

How will this all end? Will the residents of Gramercy Park persevere? We’ll be sure to keep you updated with any developments. In the meantime, try and put their suffering out of your head and enjoy the weekend. We know, it will not be easy.

Vogue Says it’s Okay to Like Big Butts Now

In what can only be described as an attempt to sound as out-of-touch as possible, Vogue has announced that “We’re officially in the era of the big booty.

The magazine claims that the era began with Kim Kardashian’s groundbreaking idiot tour, Keeping up With The Kardashians, in 2007. ”It made the entire clan famous, of course, but Kardashian’s behind was the real star, and was frequently employed as a plot device,” explained the glossy.

Vogue also insists that Instagram made booty a desirable trait, and even oddly highlights Miley Cyrus — a woman with zero, perhaps even negative booty — as someone pioneering this movement. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so scarily wrong. Disrespecting the booty is not a laughing matter.
