BROADER HORIZONS: Vanity Fair’s Elizabeth Saltzman has been given a new title at the magazine — one that will allow her more freedom to work on other projects. Saltzman, who was based in London as the magazine’s international social editor, will become a contributing editor, Vanity Fair said Thursday. She will take on her new role as of Oct. 1, and plans to fill in her time by consulting with fashion and luxury-related brands. Sources close to the magazine speculated the new role could signify a falling out of favor with editor in chief Graydon Carter, but he gave no indication of that in his comments on Saltzman. “We’re delighted that Elizabeth will continue to be a part of Vanity Fair,” Carter said. “She has been a tremendous asset to the magazine, especially in the fashion world, for many years in both New York and London.” Saltzman joined Vanity Fair as fashion editor in 1994 and was promoted to fashion director in 1995. She was named fashion-and-style director at large in 2006, and later that year became international social editor. Prior to joining Vanity Fair, Saltzman worked at Vogue, first as senior fashion editor for eight years, then as a contributing editor.
