It’s the end of an era for four Italian publications.
Condé Nast Italia will discontinue Vogue Italia’s sister publications L’Uomo Vogue, Vogue Bambini, Vogue Sposa and Vogue Gioiello, according to national media reports.
The company will continue to publish the Vogue Italia main title, which was re-launched this month under the direction of editor-in-chief Emanuele Farneti, who, in January, succeeded the late Franca Sozzani.
According to WWD, “The magazines’ closure will result in cuts in staff, the number of which could not immediately be learned. Staff being laid off are said to be offered a severance package of 40 months’ pay.”
“In addition, market sources contend that in the next few months Condé Nast will start cutting an employee each month.”

This decade is proving to be a terrible era for men’s fashion magazines. In 2015, we closed out the year with news that Details was shuttering and now another major men’s magazine bites the dust. WWD reveals that Condé Nast Italia is shuttering L’Uomo Vogue, alongside its titles, Vogue Bambini, Vogue Sposa and Vogue Gioiello.
The publishing company is focusing its efforts on Vogue Italia. Interestingly enough, Emanuele Farneti was named editor-in-chief of L’Uomo Vogue and Vogue Italia earlier this year, following the passing of Franca Sozzani. Cutting staff and offering 40-month pay severance packages, Condé Nast Italia’s sole men’s magazine is now GQ Italia.
The first men’s edition of Vogue, L’Uomo Vogue mades its debut in 1968 as a bi-annual magazine. Going monthly in 1975, the Italian publication quickly established itself as one of the world’s leading men’s fashion magazines. L’Uomo Vogue’s cover stars over the decades include everyone from Brad Pitt and David Beckham to Jake Gyllenhal. More recently, the magazine fell victim to chasing the millennial and viral trends, featuring subjects such as Jaden Smith and Cameron Dallas.

the Forrester and Logan families.
"The Bold and the Beautiful" has given us thirty years of lovers and jealousy. Catfights are always a lot of fun to watch. One of thebest catfights onscreen involved chocolate and lots of it. Hope was trying to get Steffy to sign annulment papers so she and Liam could get married. Tempers flared and a nearby chocolate fountain got involved. The next thing we knew they were covered.
Some women really do love to fight and matriarch Stephanie Forrester was no exception. Who can forget when Stephanie went after Sally Spectra for stealing Forrester ?
Later, her annoyance with Sally turned to an odd friendship. And Stephanie’s hatred for the Logans, especially Donna, Beth, Stephen, and Brooke.
But, do you also remember the tender moment on her deathbed when Stephanie asked Brooke to sing her to sleep in her arms? It was a spectacular finish for a spectacular character. R.I.P. Stephanie.
Secrets and LiesSince the inception of "B&B," secrets and lies have been a big part of the show. Of course, secrets don’t stay secret forever and don’t we love the big reveal! Back in 1997, Dr. Taylor Hayes Jones lied to Ridge Forrester about Thomas Forrester’s paternity saying the father was Thorne Forrester when in fact the baby daddy was Ridge.
"The Bold and the Beautiful" has always put relevant stories out there. There are always secrets in Soapland and Maya Avant (Karla Mosley) had a humdinger of a secret.
Born in a male's body, Myron identified with being female, and eventually transitioned into a female. She named herself Maya. When Maya married Rick Forrester, she became the first transgender bride to be married on daytime TV. The intention of this storyline was to foster love and tolerance. It was a fan favorite amongst many though had its controversial moments.
