Glamour has folded its Hispanic quarterly glossy called Glam Belleza Latina, WWD has learned.

The supplement, which means “Latin Beauty,” was launched in 2012 as a way for Condé Nast to speak to the English-speaking Hispanic market.

A Glamour spokeswoman confirmed the closure, and noted: “Glam Belleza content will live mostly on digital with special print editions being created on occasion.”

The closure is part of company-wide budget cuts at parent Condé Nast. On Wednesday, the publisher closed Details and combined the business staffs of Self and Glamour.

Insiders told WWD that five staffers at Glamour were let go on Wednesday, including the magazine’s accessories director. At Glam Belleza, editor Patricia Reynoso may stay on as a contributing editor, a source indicated.

Glamour confirmed the job cuts, but did not comment on the number of layoffs.

“We have eliminated a handful of editorial positions,” a spokeswoman offered. “Innovation remains our biggest priority and will continue to invest across the board in tools, staffing and a diverse range of inspiring content across all platforms.”

Despite the cuts, Glamour noted that it has added positions on the digital side this year, and it plans to invest in new talent in the coming year.

This has been a month of changes at Condé, which also have included a handful of layoffs at GQ, the departure of Teen Vogue publisher and chief revenue officer Jason Wagenheim and a shake-up at Allure that had Linda Wells exiting after 24 years as editor in chief and the naming of her successor, Michelle Lee, of Nylon Media.

More cuts are expected to come across the company this week, as the publisher is in the process of cutting costs, restructuring its business side, and slimming down its mastheads, as it shifts its focus to becoming more digitally nimble and less reliant on print advertising.
