Between Kate Lanphear, Joanna Coles, and Miley Cyrus, there have been a lot of platinum pixie cuts making their way around the shows this season at New York Fashion Week. Two of them were out in full force Wednesday night at Acme restaurant in Greenwich Village for Cosmopolitan‘s party to celebrate Cyrus’ March cover.
At last night’s premiere of the second season of Girls, either Hannah, Marnie, Jessa, and Shoshanna totally coordinated their black outfits, or they’ve all come to embrace the New Yorker uniform.
Since taking over the reins at Cosmopolitan this past September, Kate White‘s successor and current editor-in-chief Joanna Coles has fired nine staffers, despite saying that she was “not going to muddle” with the magazine.
Joanna Coles has only been at the helm of Cosmopolitan for one month, but she’s already looking to shake things up quite a bit.
After six years in the top spot at Marie Claire, Joanna Coles is moving on to a new role as the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan. Coles will replace outgoing editor Kate White starting September 10, though White will stay on at Hearst Magazines in a consulting role. Anne Fulenwider is moving from Brides to replace Coles at Marie Claire. Whew! Got all of that? Good.
One day we’re going to meet Marie Claire editor-in-chief Joanna Coles, befriend her and join in her mission of keeping things real. But until that day is here, we’ll be watching her on Project Runway: All Stars, where she’ll be replacing Tim Gunn as design adviser to this season’s group of contestants.
As a reminder for those of us who didn’t spend the past week trembling with anticipation, this is the episode in which the contestants designed for NINA GARCIA! The woman who perfected the moue! If only they knew what they were in for!
Project Runway’s new cast has us starstruck! Lifetime announced the new contestants (and completely new judges panel) for Project Runway All Stars today. Here’s your first look into what’s bound to be a delightfully dramatic and tear-filled season.
On Monday, Marie Claire blogger Maura Kelly published a post titled, “Should ‘Fatties’ Get a Room? (Even on TV?)”. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the piece was incendiary (though we’ve excerpted a few sections after the jump just to get your heart rate going), but what has been most surprising about the controversy is Marie Claire’s response.
We’ve always had a hunch that one of our favorites, Marie Claire‘s editor-in-chief Joanna Coles, had just the slightest case of Anna envy. And after a week-long learning experience at Vogue sold on the auction block for a cool $42,000 — what’s a rival editrix to do? Get a teaching gig of your own, obviously — except we’re kind of having a tough time picturing Ms. Wintour anywhere within a 5-block radius of New York’s Learning Annex. And according to the center’s star-studded course catalogue, come a few weeks, that’s exactly where you’ll find Coles — along with co-conspirator Narcisco Rodriquez.
