A NEW ENTERTAINMENT: Lisa Berman has been photography director at Portfolio since fall 2005 (well before any issues appeared in spring 2007), but, after 16 years at Condé Nast, she's heading to Time Inc.'s Entertainment Weekly to oversee photography for the magazine's impending redesign. "I'm really proud of the launch of the magazine, but felt it was time for me to make a change," she told WWD, though she declined to give further details on what was in store at EW. That magazine's latest look, which is being led by new design director Brian Anstey, will appear in July. A spokeswoman for Portfolio said the magazine was interviewing candidates for the top photo job.
Meanwhile, EW has lured another Condé Nast staffer as its new director of event marketing. Julie Moore, who held the same post at Vanity Fair, will move over to the weekly, replacing Sheila Kelly, who's left the magazine.

COSMOPOLITAN IS MORE THAN JUST A WORD: Is Cosmopolitan magazine the inspiration for a new hotel, casino and beach club being built in Las Vegas? Hearst Communications Inc. thinks so — and it filed a complaint on Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Cosmo Senior Borrower LLC as well as 3700 Associates LLC, the resort's owner and developer. The Hearst suit alleges the defendants are seeking to trade off of the publisher's "famous, long-established family of marks...and [the defendant] has stated its intention to use those marks in connection with goods and services that are the same as or related to the goods and services to which the public associates the marks with [Hearst Communications Inc.]."
