Condé Nast Staffers ‘Aghast’ at Incoming Vanity Fair Editor Radhika Jones’ Fashion Sense
The Vanity Fair fashion staff is apparently not impressed with the style of its incoming editor, Radhika Jones. Condé Nast Artistic Director Anna Wintour reportedly glared at Jones’ tights, which were covered with illustrated cartoon foxes, throughout a staff meeting. One fashion editor told WWD that Jones, the former editorial director of The New York Times books department, “seemed nervous. The outfit was interesting,” adding that her navy shift dress was “iffy” at best. “I’m not sure if I should include a new pair of tights in her welcome basket,” she said. Jones is set to begin her new role on Dec. 11, amid what said to be pressure to slash numerous jobs at the glossy.
