Margaret Russell Leaves Elle Decor!

Per a press release yesterday: "Margaret Russell has been named Editor-in-Chief of Architectural Digest, it was announced today by Thomas J. Wallace, Editorial Director of Condé Nast. Her appointment is effective September 7, 2010. The editorial headquarters of Architectural Digest, currently in California, will move to New York City."

Congratulations Margaret! From my point of view this means - Architectural Digest is now going to be a must-buy magazine!

Reporter Steve Cohn of minonline reports her debut issue will be January 2011. More details here.

Now I wonder who will replace Margaret at Elle Decor? She leaves behind huge shoes to fill.

May, just maybe, after all this fruit basket turnover, we will end up with a handful of good shelter magazines once again! Town and Country is already better, Newell Turner looks to be a fine replacement for Stephen Drucker, AD will certainly become readable again.....who knows? I am going to think positively and look forward to some new perspectives!

I hope this will resuscitate AD....because I stopped reading it a few years ago.....Bring it Margaret!

I'm shocked! And how ironic, just yesterday was discussing with dear husband (who was showing me a barn featured in NH in a neighboring town from us, in the current AD issue as we were having our car worked on;) how surprising it was that AD was still out there (not well loved) with all of the shelters closing. Can't wait to see what she does with it. She will be a breath of fresh air for that pub for sure!

I agree, this is a fantastic thing for AD and a great thing for all of us who love magazines (and have never really been 'into' the aesthetic of AD).

Wow! I can't wait to see how she revamps AD! It's a magazine that I always thought i should like but could never get into! I would love another fresh and chic shelter mag to subscribe to!

Shock horror - what will happen to Elle Decor? It's ironic and Margaret Russell and Stephen Drucker, the two editors who best weathered the GFC storm and kept their magazines afloat and flourishing are moving on.

They will be sorry once she has gone for a while. really looking forward to seeing what she does over there.

As if it wasn't good enough news that Paige Rense's reign of Hollywood Terror was over, now this! Indeed it should be a splendid magazine. And don't we assume that Mitchell Owens must be up for Editor at Elle Decor?
