Gluck (above at left), who had been at New York for a decade, will replace Vogue's longtime managing editor Laurie Jones starting April 8. Jones left the magazine at the end of February after 20 years there. Coincidentally, Jones also came to Vogue from New York, where she'd spent the previous 20 years of her career. (While at New York, Jones hired Wintour as the magazine's fashion editor in 1981.)
Elsewhere in the magazine industry, Joanna Coles, who'd been hard at work restructuring her staff at Cosmpolitan, has hired Shopbop head stylist Aya Yanai as the magazine's fashion director. Michelle McCool, who had been Cosmo's fashion director for 10 years, left the magazine just last month. Yanai has worked in fashion glossies in the past: before Shopbop, she was the senior fashion editor at Teen Vogue and fashion director at Nylon.
