CLEANING HOUSE: In an effort to amp up the fashion quota (and presumably advertisers), Good Housekeeping editor in chief Jane Francisco has recruited Lori Bergamotto as style director and Kristen Mascia as features editor.
They are among four new hires at GH, but their roles are newly created posts. Bergamotto was most recently contributing style editor at Lucky where she routinely talked trends on national TV shows. Mascia’s last run was as Parade’s articles editor, a role that involved editing cover packages, personal essays and pieces, as well as excerpting books for print and the Web.

Another new hire is fashion director Kristen Saladino, who spent the last seven years as senior fashion editor at Self. Saladino succeeds Jasmine Chang. One of her new office mates in the Hearst Tower is April Franzino, a former GH-er who is now back, this time as beauty director. She succeeds Nina Judar.
