Vogue Editors Promise To Ditch Milan If Fashion Week Schedule Is Changed

Filed under: Anna WintourVogueFashion Week

Oh the dramz!

Anna Wintour and the rest of the Vogue editors at Conde Nast are pissed about Italy's decision to have Milan Fashion Week start during New York Fashion Week and continue through London Fashion Week.

In fact the International chairman of Conde Nast fired off a letter to the Italian Chamber of Fashion that if they don't change it back to the original schedule, none of his editors will be attending.

Here's the back story that lead up to this threat: next year New York Fashion Week is starting on September 13th, which is a week later than normal due to Labor Day. The Italianos argue if Milan Fashion Week is pushed back designers won't have enough time to produce good shows, but that's where Conde Nast begs to differ.

Jonathan Newhouse wrote Anna & Co. like the schedule the way it is and are against any changes. He warns in his letter:

"They will not under any circumstances abandon the London or New York shows if the Milan shows are moved earlier…The best way to avoid having a problem is to maintain the schedule as it is now."

Mario Boselli, the head of the Italian Chamber of Fashion told WWD:

"We wouldn’t have reconsidered the show dates, but since the equilibrium has been ruptured, we are reflecting and rethinking the situation. Already we thought we were compromising and since New York has decided to set its schedule without consulting us, we are thinking in terms of what is best for us."

Me-ow!

Sounds to us like Vogue may have won the battle, but not the war…yet.

Overheard In The Conde Nast Elevator

Filed under: Silly!TwitterVogue

conde-nast-elevator-twitter.jpg

Some brave soul at Conde Nast has created a Twitter for the building's elevator!

The tweets are from actual conversations overheard inside the 4 Times Square lifts and some of the things that come out of people's mouths are HIGHlarious.

Here are some of our faves so far:

Girl: Omigod what happened to your knee?! Fashion boy: Oh god, I fell dancing! Girl: Omigod it's like you came back from the war.

Fl 5 Lady peering at her friend's to-go box of lettuce and carrots: Ooooh, that looks good!

[Guy walks into elevator wearing "Legalize Gay" t-shirt] Teen Voguer: That shirt is so two months ago.

Girl #1: There should be an elevator that only goes to Vogue. Just up to the 12th floor and back down. Girl #2: totally.

[Girl holding brownie abashedly in elevator] Male coworker: I'm not judging you.

Summer Intern: My driver had SUCH a bad attitude. I was like, "don't complain to me, I didn't eat lunch either! You think I eat clothes?"

Sounds like a great place to work, doesn't it?

conde-nast-moving-to-one-world-trade-center-in-2014.jpg

After a year of speculation, Conde Nast announced they're moving out of 4 Times Square and into One World Trade Center.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have approved the publisher's $2 billion lease, which means they'll be calling downtown home for the next 25 years.

Wowsa.

The 104 story downtown building is scheduled to be completed in 2013, but Conde Nast's 20+ magazine titles won't be moving in until 2014.

When the big move does happen, mag's including Vanity Fair, Vogue, W and GQ will takeover 21 floors or 1 million square feet of real estate.

Hollywood was a happenin' place on Monday night and a fashionable one too!

While most celebs were at the Scream 4 premiere, others spent their evening at the Soho House for Condé Nast Traveler’s “Hot List” party.

One of the prettiest guests of the night was Emma Stone who looked amazing in an icy blue beaded chiffon Preen dress. Her hair and makeup were equally as beautiful, making this a perfect look from head to toe.

Bosom buddies Brooklyn Decker and Sofia Vergara both showed off their sexy figures in Dolce & Gabbana.

The Sports Illustrated model went with a navy lace dress and red Manolos, while the Modern Family actress chose a strapless tulle cocktail dress and Louboutins.

The real standout in the crowd was Vanessa Hudgens. The Sucker Punch starlet went in a completely different direction by wearing a shiny white Mimi Plange suit and Casadei heels.

Conde Nast Hacker Busted!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!Tech Talk

ross-ulrich-admits-to-hacking-into-conde-nast-system.jpg

A 22 year old man in Ohio has confessed to illegally accessing Conde Nast's computer system last year, following a probe by the FBI.

The perp, Ross Ulrich, says he isn't sure if he'll charged for downloading the 1,100 images, but has already agreed to pay the publisher $12,500 from a copyright lawsuit.

As for why he did it?

Ross says it was so he could be first to post the image in online forums, but now he's "over it".

Yeah, federal investigations tend to do that.
