What Carol Smith is Really Doing at Condé Nast
Patrick McMullan View Gallery
(NEW YORK) The Daily's february cover Elle-itrix Carol Smith has stunned tout New York by descending from her SVP, chief brand officer post at chic bible Elle (where she appeared atop two mastheads!) to a VP and publisher gig at two distinctly non-fashion Condé Nast titles. One is essentially mort (for now), the other is---let's face it---a delicious but minor book for those Newhouses.
Interesting that she reports to Condé superstar Tom Florio. This, to all you insiders, can only mean one thing---Smith is auditioning for the Vogue publisher position while the lifetime Condé superstar readies himself for a well-deserved move upstairs. (An excellent choice, Tom. If anyone can make Vogue a tout-media megabrand, she's the one. Remember Runway?)
As these developments unfolded this morning, Elle's editor in chief Robbie Myers made crabcakes with Olivia Palermo during a taping of The Martha Stewart Show.
