Phillip Picardi

Phillip Picardi, the chief content officer of Condé Nast’s Teen Vogue, who was a rising star at the magazine publisher, is leaving the company.

Mr. Picardi will be the editor in chief of Out, a magazine that focuses on LGBTQ fashion, lifestyle and entertainment.

His eyes are beautiful.

First, OUT is a godawful, insidious rag. Second, this is not a very well-veiled way of throwing yet another insta-ho thread in our faces.

Just saying.

Hopefully he will fire everyone there and shift the focus back to gays and lesbians and not trans 24/7.

by Anonymousreply 408/28/2018

Sounds like a step down.

Isn't he the one who made Teen Vogue into T Vogue?

by Anonymousreply 608/28/2018

Ugh if he is then of COURSE he's moving to Out, it's Trans central now.

by Anonymousreply 708/28/2018

Ummm... he moved to the new queer magazine "Them" not "Out"

by Anonymousreply 808/28/2018

Oh. Them. That's right. It was, like, the T version of Vogue, right?

by Anonymousreply 908/28/2018

Them?

R6 I think it was more because of Elaine Welteroth

The magazine is insufferable

fashion, lifestyle, entertainment. jesus fuck, just fold already.

and didn't we used to hate being reduced to a "lifestyle"?

by Anonymousreply 1308/28/2018

Actually, it's OK. It just takes itself too seriously. Not much humor or joy in it's articles

by Anonymousreply 1408/28/2018

From Teen Vogue to Out: definitely downwardly mobile.

Why did he leave?

Sounds like a huge step down. Wonder if he got canned from Conde Nast of if he's just dumb enough to think being editor-in-chief of a bad magazine is a better career move.

Personally, I would have been willing to wait a couple more years to get the top spot at a prestige Conde Nast title than slumming at a rag like Out.

R17 the post is wrong. He did not join out. He started a new lgbtq magazine called "them". It's been in existence for over 6 months.

by Anonymousreply 1808/29/2018

Them?

by Anonymousreply 1908/29/2018

Yeah Them!?

by Anonymousreply 2008/29/2018

Yep. Weird name

by Anonymousreply 2108/29/2018

He's the one who left to start Them? Ugh. What's the deal OP? That's worth an F&F.

by Anonymousreply 2208/29/2018

He looks like an alien in OP’s picture.

by Anonymousreply 2308/29/2018

He is the digital director of Teen Vogue and Allure, and also started up the LBGT site Them at Condé Nast (the latter is pretty bad). He is leaving to go to Out.

by Anonymousreply 2409/04/2018

He is leaving Conde Nast (where he was Anna Wintour's protege and started Them) to edit Out.

Them is a massive failure — a traffic, buzz and revenue black hole — and he fell out of Anna's favor. It was too SJW trans-y and downscale.

Look for him to kill off Out for good.

by Anonymousreply 2509/04/2018

R25 wow. He's leaving Them already? I know that progressives have been attacking Out magazine for not being inclusive enough. I guess that might be why they're making this change?

It's too inclusive.

After the Milo feature and Chadwick Moore being a general dick they have been attacked a lot

Thank you, r25, that's a better description than I could have come up with. What's the old joke, "The food isn't very good, and such small portions!"? That's Them. The content isn't very good, and there's not much of it. What is there is poorly written and edited.

Still, going to Out doesn't seem an auspicious career move...

Nice

Wow. He's part forest creature.

Is he quoting Lincoln or Mandela?

The New York Times in March: "Anna Wintour Thinks Phillip Picardi Is The Future of Conde Nast"

Five months later, he bails for a dwindling print magazine.

by Anonymousreply 3309/12/2018

I didnt think OUT could get any worse, but here we are. Picardi spends more paper inches on trans/queer issues than gay ones. THEM is a cesspit of horseshit.

by Anonymousreply 3409/12/2018

Isn't he the one who commissioned that infamous Teen Vogue's Guide to Anal Sex article in which females were referred to as "non-prostate owners"?

by Anonymousreply 3509/12/2018

Yes, R35.

And there was originally no mention of condoms.

The fashion industry is the acme of integrity.
