Multiple sources have confirmed to The Daily that massive layoffs occurred today at Allure. We are hearing up to 11 people including longtime creative director Paul Cavaco, fashion director Siobhan Bonnouvrier, executive editor Kristin Perrotta, senior market editor Jennifer Yee, managing editor Felice Kaplan, and public relations director Megan Carolan were let go earlier today. These layoffs come as little surprise after founding editor Linda Wells was let go in November last year. Her successor was Nylon Media’s former editor in chief and marketing officer Michelle Lee.
We’ve reached out to the Condé Nast PR department for comment, and a company spokesperson wrote via e-mail: “Michelle [Lee] has a clear vision and strategy to grow and expand Allure in print, digital and video. We will be announcing new additions to the creative team shortly.”
