Here’s why we think this was a brilliant bit of decision making on the part of the powerhouse publishing brass.

When it comes to Condé Nast, you’re either with them or against them. And now that Carine Roitfeld is no longer at French Vogue, Condé is warning photographers not to work with her, lest they incur the magazine giant’s wrath.
Last night Condé Nast editors and execs stepped out of the gilded tower that is 4 Times Square to toast executive publishing director Bill Wackermann and his new book Flip the Script: How to Turn the Tables and Win in Business and Life. We talked to Glamour editor in chief Cindi Leive about her winning philosophies and what we can expect to see from the glossy in the coming months.

This was the week Justin Bieber wore an offensive t-shirt, Missoni for Target images were released, and Anna Wintour had dinner with Barack Obama. There was also craziness surrounding the Conde Nast elevator Twitter account and the last days of the Alexander McQueen exhibit.

Just four days after a very brave soul started tweeting out snippets of conversations overheard in the Conde Nast elevator, a dogged search for the social media maverick behind the @CondeElevator account has begun. They started with a tweet about food, yesterday they quoted Anna Wintour, and today they have more than 36,000 followers. No wonder people are, well, wondering.
