W Experiences Last of Staffing Upheaval; Terry Richardson Back Working with the Magazine

>> The last of the staffing upheaval came yesterday at W, according to the magazine's editor Stefano Tonchi, when market director Treena Lombardo and accessories and jewelry director Brooke Magnaghi were replaced by T alum Karla Martinez, who will fill both roles as fashion market director. “I think we should be set,” Tonchi told WWD.

It sounds like fashion director Alex White is staying on, and she's rumored to be shooting stories for the magazine's September issue, which will mark the first issue with Tonchi's full redesign.

Changes are already apparent in the magazine's July 2010 issue, however: White worked with Terry Richardson on a 17-shot editorial. Recently, two current and former W staffers confirmed to Jezebel that Richardson had not worked with W in a while; another individual claimed that the most recent instance was in the November 1996 issue. There was a rumor that the ban on Richardson's work was instituted after former W art director Dennis Freedman took offense to a photo by the photographer of a model with her head in an oven.
