There’s a rumor making it’s way through the fashion industry like DiCaprio goes through models and it’s getting too loud to ignore.
Most recently P6 has reported Anna Wintour and Condé Nast could be
parting waves and she’s soon to be out as artistic director and editor in chief at Vogue. A position she’s held, rather notoriously, since 1988.
Wintour is, supposedly, to exit her all-powerful role at the publishing house this summer after the July wedding of her daughter, Bee Schaffer, to Francesco Carrozzini, the son of former Italian Vogue Editor Franca Sozzani.
The move would also allow Wintour, 68 — who has for three decades been fashion’s ultimate power broker — to step aside on a high after closing Vogue’s all-important September issue.
Condé Nast strongly denies Wintour is going. A Condé corporate spokesperson said, “We emphatically deny these rumors,” but declined to comment more specifically on Wintour’s plans.
However, we’re told Vogue UK’s editor, Edward Enninful, is the likely replacement as the editor of US Vogue. It’s unclear who — if anyone — might replace Wintour as the artistic director of Condé Nast, the title she ascended to in 2013, giving her oversight over all Condé magazine titles.
