Nina Garcia out at US Elle

The gossip mill is buzzing in Manhattan over the rumour that the fashion director of US Elle, Nina Garcia, has been given her marching orders. WWD was first with the reports late Friday, followed by a Saturday update from New York magazine. Insiders are mulling over the possibility that Garcia’s Project Runway judging role, just-filmed Ugly Betty cameo, ubiquitous Blackberry ads and book deals were overshadowing the magazine and, most importantly, the editor in chief Robbie Myers and new creative director, Joe Zee.
