Memo Pad: Kenneth Cole 24/7... Shopping Guide... Isn't Fashion A Soap Opera Already?...

Showgoers were thinking about more than just fall trends during New York Fashion Week, thanks to the always provocative Kenneth Cole.

HEADING WEST: Glamour's expanded coverage of women in Hollywood needed an editor based out West with the connections and experience to attract celebrities to the magazine. So Glamour tapped James Patrick Herman, In Style's senior entertainment editor, to join the magazine as senior West Coast editor. The position marks the first time Glamour has had a full-time editor based in Los Angeles. Herman will be responsible for wrangling celebrities for covers and help to expand the magazine's events on the West Coast. He takes his new position March 10 and will relocate to Los Angeles from New York. He will report to Alison Ward Frank, who was promoted to deputy editor, entertainment, from entertainment director. Herman spent nine years at In Style covering parties for the magazine and editing celebrity features and cover stories. Prior to In Style, Herman worked for Elle as music editor from 1993 to 1999. A replacement for Herman at In Style has not yet been named. — S.D.S.

EXECUTIVE MOVES: Maria Padova will become publisher of Life & Style as of Feb. 25. Padova joins the magazine from Wenner Media, where she was advertising director of Us Weekly, and has worked at Redbook, Town & Country and Modern Bride.

Another publisher on the move is Cosmogirl's founding publisher Kristine Welker, who was named vice president of sales and marketing for Hearst Magazines Digital Media. She will report to Chuck Cordray, vice president and general manager of the media group. Welker replaces Pamela Raley, who is leaving the company. Also at Hearst, Christine Demetres is the new design director of Cosmogirl magazine. She replaces Kristin Fitzpatrick, who moved to Marie Claire in the same position. Prior to Cosmogirl, Demetres was the senior associate art director of Allure.

And, over at Time Inc., Real Simple scored a coup in the perennial personnel back-and-forth between that magazine and the Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. titles, scoring Allie Lewis Clapp. Formerly deputy food editor of Everyday Food, she'll run Real Simple's food department. Clapp is also recognizable from her co-hosting duties on the PBS series "Everyday Food" and appearances on the "Martha Stewart Show" and the "Today" show. — S.D.S.
