(NEW YORK) It's Stefano Tonchi's first official day on the job as editor-in-chief of W, and even though he's currently in Milan for the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, he is rumored to have already made his first hire. Lawrence Karol will emerge on the very top of W's masthead as executive managing editor. Karol, a Conde Nast veteran, most recently served as managing editor at Gourmet, where he also penned stories.

4/13 UPDATE: An earlier version of this article indicated that Andrew Wilkes, formerly of Allure, was rumored to take this role. Tonchi has confirmed that Karol has accepted the position.
