Today, Margaret Russell, editor-in-chief of Architectural Digest, was shown the door. Condé Nast artistic director, editor of Vogue, and rumored gorgon Anna Wintour pink-slipped the well-respected industry veteran replacing her with Teen Vogue's Amy Astley.
Wintour was believed to be displeased with Russell's lack of digital savvy. Teen Vogue has upped its digital traffic 50 percent in the last year. The Vogue editrix was reportedly also unhappy with the way in which the AD March cover featuring Lesser Kardashians was styled.
This is the world we live in.
