If you believe the highly speculative piece in today’s WWD, then yes. But we’re not totally buying it.
Conde Nast‘s food group is experiencing a little bit of a human resources extravaganza. In a really interesting dance between the fashion and food publishing worlds, Carol Smith (who left Elle to direct the group in April), has been let go. Meanwhile GQ style editor Adam Rappaport will replace Barbara Fairchild as editor-in-chief of Bon Appetit.
When we first heard the news that Elle chose Robin Domeniconi as its new chief brand officer, we immediately had doubts. Domeniconi is currently Mircosoft‘s VP of U.S. advertising sales, marketing and publishing. Is it possible, we thought, that someone from a technology background could bring a storied fashion magazine back to life?
