Life & Style Weekly - - Inside Hollywood -

Long­time Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Win­tour is close to be­ing cut by par­ent com­pany Condé Nast, Life & Style has ex­clu­sively learned. “Ev­ery­one at Condé knows Anna’s days are num­bered,” an in­sider says. “Top ed­i­tors are just wait­ing for her to fi­nally grab her Birkin bag and leave so they can stop pre­tend­ing to care about what she says and thinks.”

Anna, 68, the in­spi­ra­tion for Meryl Streep’s icy char­ac­ter in The Devil Wears Prada, has been the fash­ion bi­ble’s EIC since 1988 and was made Condé Nast’s artis­tic di­rec­tor in 2013. Al­though the pub­lish­ing com­pany de­nied Anna is leav­ing, Ed­ward En­nin­ful, the editor of Bri­tish Vogue, was re­cently spied in the NYC office, a bad sign for Anna. “Word is that Anna will be forced out be­fore Memo­rial Day and Ed­ward will get her job,” the in­sider says. Many Condé mag­a­zines are strug­gling, the in­sider notes, and “Anna’s be­ing blamed for a lot of the prob­lems. Ru­mor has it that Brides is about to be closed af­ter 84 years. Ev­ery­one is wor­ried about other ti­tles be­ing shut­tered once Ed­ward takes over.”

Af­ter 35 years at Condé Nast, “Anna couldn’t keep up with the times any­more,” an in­sider tells Life & Style.
