MORE CHANGES AT FRENCH VOGUE: It looks as if Gardner Bellanger will become the next publisher of French Vogue. Although Vogue has issued a “no comment,” Bellanger is expected to take over some of the duties formerly handled by Jean Poniatowski, who, as reported, is moving to a new corporate post. Bellanger is currently American Vogue’s associate publisher for Europe.

CHANGES AT VANITY FAIR? After fighting a losing battle to regain ad pages, Vanity Fair might be getting ready to change publishers again. Kathy Neisloss Leventhal, VF’s current publisher, just got the post last May, after a successful run as publisher of Allure. But, according to sources, a change could be imminent. Leventhal was on vacation and unavailable for comment. Steven T. Florio, president of Conde Nast, could not be reached for comment.

THE AD COUPLE: Isaac Mizrahi is getting back into the ad game, after a two-year hiatus. Peter Arnell, chairman of the Arnell Group, will collaborate with Mizrahi on campaigns for the designer collection and a new, less expensive brand. A budget hasn’t been set yet. Meanwhile, Arnell is reportedly negotiating with Richard Avedon to photograph the Chanel beauty campaign.

INTO THE CLOSET: Tommy Hilfiger spent the week in Los Angeles visiting the closets of the rich and famous. He snooped around the closets of Tom Jones and Stevie Nicks, and members of En Vogue, while taping segments for his upcoming cable TV show, “Tip,” that debuts in June on MTV and VH-1.

CLAIRE TO MARIE CLAIRE: Claire Mchugh has been named executive editor of Marie Claire (U.S.). She had been a senior editor of New York magazine.

NO STONE UNTURNED: Rolling Stone magazine will feature a one-hour program on E! Entertainment Television entitled “Rolling Stone Style.” The program will debut this September and will coincide with Rolling Stone’s annual fall portfolio issue.
