Yes, it looks like she shan’t be unemployed much longer. According to Fashion Week Daily, Nina Garcia is thisclose to landing a major position at Marie Claire. So at last the puzzle has been completed! Let’s review its pieces, shall we? Garcia was spotted leaving the Hearst building earlier this month to frenzied speculation she might wind up at one of its titles. Garcia’s judgeship on Project Runway hangs in the balance since she’s no longer at Elle, which will sponsor the show through the next season, its last on Bravo. Marie Claire will reportedly take over as sponsor once the show moves to Lifetime, thus allowing Garcia to reign as queen bee to all things TV fashion. We can’t wait to see what she does with Marie Claire, since the title’s not exactly heralded for its fashion coverage. It will be similarly interesting to see what happens to Elle’s fashion coverage in Garcia’s absence.
Now we just need to figure out how she’ll get that judge’s seat for the next season of Runway, airing this summer. Harvey Weinstein really wants her there, but if she’s not at Elle, can they make it happen? Okay, so maybe the puzzle’s almost completed. Gosh, this is like fashion Clue, isn’t it?
