Marie Claire Adds Two, Promotes One

Marie Claire has made a few changes to its editorial team. Byron Regej and Whitney Joiner have both joined the magazine, and Erin Flaherty has been promoted.

Regej has been named design director for Marie Claire. He comes to the magazine from Los Angeles, where he most recently served as senior art director. Prior to that Regej was art director for GQ and Condé Nast Traveler.

Joiner was most recently a freelancer, penning articles for publications such as New York, Details Elle, Glamour and more. At Marie Claire she will serve as a senior editor, overseeing the title’s “Love/Sex” section.

Flaherty has been promoted from executive beauty editor to beauty and health director. She had been executive beauty editor since 2010.  Prior to joining Marie Claire, Flaherty was the founding editor of Yahoo! Shine.

Harvey Weinstein, David Zinczenko and Peggy Siegal Throws Another Party

1003_mockup.gif‘Tis the season for power lunches disguised as holiday celebrations, and this afternoon at Michael’s it was SRO as the moguls (Harvey Weinstein, Tommy Mottola), a perennial party giver (Peggy Siegal and her indefatigable minions) and boldface names (Star Jones, Muffie Potter Aston) poured into the dining room for one head-spinning scene. While Bonnie Fuller and company shoe-horned 14 people comfortably into Table One, Peggy presided over a lunch for 34 in the Garden Room honoring “The Untouchables.” (Although I didn’t see them, I did spot — I think — Malcolm Gladwell and Stu Zakim in the crowd). The rest of the dining room was full of table hoppers and gladhanders — Harvey Weinstein works a room like nobody’s business — and I noticed there was plenty of glasses of red and white wine all around. Cheers!

I was joined today by Anne Fulenwider who has plenty to celebrate these days having  “come home” to Marie Claire in September. She was tapped for the top job after Joanna Coles departed for Cosmo when Kate White left to write her best sellers full-time. I know, you need a score card for all this, but do try to keep up. Anne’s extraordinary rise to the top of the masthead is a master class on how to succeed in publishing by being very smart, working hard and staying grounded amid all the glitz and glamour (yes, to civilians and the uninitiated this is a glamorous business). The Harvard graduate came to New York in the mid-nineties and landed her first job in magazines working for David Lauren at Swing. An internship at The Paris Review turned into a gig as research assistant to George Plimpton when he was working on his book on Truman Capote. Anne got quite an education diving into boxes of fascinating transcripts, fact checking scores of Plimpton’s interviews and, occasionally ”chopping carrots” at his home and pitching in whenever needed. All in a day’s work.

Diane Clehane and Anne Fulenwider

When the book was done, she went on to become senior editor, moved to Vanity Fair where she was editor of the magazine’s popular “Fanfare” section, and wound up editing the work of Leslie Bennetts, Buzz Bissinger and Dominick Dunne. Except for a brief sojourn to San Francisco, she spent a decade at the magazine where, she said, she “grew up” and was “inspired” by Vanity Fair’s great reporting and writing and learned that “maintaining quality” and upholding the highest journalistic standards (“There were armies of fact checkers and researchers!”) were critical to the vitality and relevance of a successful magazine.

“Alex and Nina are both inspired visual storytellers, and I am excited about what they will each bring to this new phase in Marie Claire’s evolution,” said Anne Fulenwider, editor-in-chief of Marie Claire, in a statement. “Alex’s impeccable taste and discerning eye will add a fresh point of view, and Nina truly embodies Marie Claire from a fashion and style perspective.”

Marie Claire PhotoShops Kate Middleton for Cover

Kate Middleton is a hot commodity, but unfortunately, she doesn’t agree to do magazine covers. Most glossies get this and any picture of her on their covers is obviously not a result of a photo shoot.

Marie Claire’s South Africa edition scoffs at this. The magazine not only photoshopped Middleton onto their most recent cover, but also made it look like she was posing for the title.

We have honored her [Middleton] with a fan-art tribute, dressing her up in clothes by South African designers and placing her in all sorts of fun, everyday situations,” Aspasia KarrasMarie Claire South Africa’s editor-in-chief, said, according to Us Weekly.

We’re sure Middleton is very honored.
