• Today in fashion musical chairs, we’ve got some shakeups over at Hearst. Joanna Coles is leaving her post as editor-in-chief at Marie Claire to replace Katie White at Cosmopolitan magazine. Coles says she wants to transform Cosmo’s relevance in the fashion world, making sure the glassy has “front row representation” during fashion week.  “I have some ideas, but I want to get there and meet everybody,” said Coles. “I have some ideas for partnerships and leveraging some of the brand and expanding various bits of it. Opening it up more editorially.” White will stay on at Hearst in a consulting role, while Brides (a Condé Nast title) EIC Anne Fulenwider will take over for Coles at Marie Claire. (WWD)
