(NEW YORK) Town & Country's new editor in chief Jay Fielden has initiated the second high-level shakeup at the Hearst glossy following last month's appointment of Vogue vet Alexandra Kotur as creative director. Today, the magazine announced the departure of Billy Norwich, who landed atop the masthead as "special correspondent" over a year ago at the behest of then-editor Stephen Drucker. Norwich was apparently told that he would be used strictly as a writer, and therefore decided it was the right time to pursue greener pastures. "We thank Billy for his contributions to the magazine during his tenure and look forward to publishing his freelance work if the opportunity presents itself,” said Fielden. Expect more changes soon—including some high-level movement in the design director position and fashion departments.
And speaking (sort of) of Vogue, Anna Wintour has named Kotur's successor: Chloe Malle, the 25-year-old daughter of Candice Bergen and the late Louis Malle, has been named social editor at the Condé Nast flagship title. In this staff position—Malle's first—she will be responsible for editing the front-of-book "Flash" section Kotur created and masterminded during her long tenure at Vogue. Previously, Malle was a freelance writer for the Times' Styles sections and a residential real estate columnist at the Observer. Her first day at Vogue is April 26.
