NEW TO GLAMOUR: The shake-up at Glamour continues as Anna Wintour casts her eye over the magazine in her role as Condé Nast’s artistic director. The title, under editor in chief Cindi Leive, has made its second major staff change in a month, bringing in Jillian Davison, creative director of Vogue Australia, as fashion director. The appointment follows the resignation of Anne Christensen last week. According to sources, Christensen will start a freelance career, which will likely include a few assignments from Glamour. Despite her departure, Christensen made an appearance Monday at Glamour’s Women of The Year Awards at Carnegie Hall, where she was seen chatting with colleagues.
Leive last month plucked away Elle’s design director Paul Ritter to be Glamour’s new creative director, a few weeks after Wintour began working with Leive on the magazine. Elle has yet to name Ritter’s successor and is said to be in the process of interviewing candidates.

According to Glamour, Davison will report to Leive after she moves to New York and starts in January.
Davison has long brushed shoulders with Wintour, serving as a contributing editor at Teen Vogue from 2004 until 2010. She has held the creative directorship at Vogue Australia since 2012, coming from Harper’s Bazaar Australia, where she served as fashion director. She also worked as fashion editor for Bazaar’s U.S. edition from 2000 to 2003.
Sasha Iglehart, Glamour’s deputy fashion director, will now oversee all market work and report to Davison.
