Layoffs at Hearst

As temperatures continue to rise this summer and we struggle with trying to stay cool, so is Hearst struggling to keep employees. It appears that Hearst Corporation has cut 41 employees from its publications as of Thursday. These layoffs add to employee layoffs at National Geographic, ESPN and Grazia magazine.

Hearst’s 41 employee layoffs come mostly across Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, and Elle magazines. A Forbes magazine spokesman said that the layoffs were the result of “making strategic decisions that position the business for long-term growth.”

The company restructuring translates into the layoff of Seventeen editor-in-chief Kristin Koch, who will leave her post in September. According to the Hearst Magazines Media Union wrote on Twitter: “Due to ‘company restructuring,’ we are losing talented people whose creativity and institutional knowledge is immeasurable […] We are disappointed and angry that Hearst unilaterally chose to lay off our members instead of coming to the table to explore alternative options.”

Kendall and L’Oréal

Can you believe Kendall Jenner is 26 years old. I remember seeing Kendall Jenner walk in her first fashion show when she was 15 years old.

Well, at the ripe old model age of 27 years old, Kendall has been named the new global ambassador for L’Oréal Paris. Starting in September, Kendall will lead L’Oréal Paris’ makeup campaigns. Additionally, L’Oréal Paris will put a special push behind Kendall’s favorite brand products, OG Telescopic Mascara, Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation, and the newly unveiled Infallible Matte Resistance liquid lippie.

“Kendall is a powerful, successful, and talented young woman who continues to captivate audiences around her,” said L’Oréal Paris in a news release. “A constant figure in the fashion industry, an entrepreneur, and a media icon, Kendall Jenner has become a role model for her generation, and the brand is thrilled to welcome her to the L’Oréal Paris family.”

Jenner added in the same announcement: “I’m honored to be part of a new sisterhood of strong, powerful women and to be able to say those iconic words, I’m worth it. Joining the L’Oréal Paris family and having the opportunity to embody everything the brand stands for feels like a true full-circle moment.”
