Memo Pad: Who's Bigger?... Luxury Battle... Triple Play...

Rachel Zoe has never been known for having a small ego, but who knew she considered herself the most important woman in fashion.

Tony Chambers, Wallpaper’s editor in chief, said the magazine put together a “wish list” of guest editors from the worlds of art, fashion, architecture and design, and they all said yes. “This seemed to go well so we might make this a regular thing in October,” he said. In addition, he added readers will be seeing more fashion in the magazine via fashion director Kim Andreolli. The issue also marks the first time photographer Mario Sorrenti has worked with Wallpaper. — A.W.

NEW GIG: Former Shop Etc. executive editor Charla Krupp has landed at More magazine as a fashion columnist. The column, which begins in the November issue, is a natural tie-in to her book, forthcoming in January, “How Not to Look Old.” Before Shop Etc., which Hearst folded in August 2006, Krupp worked at Glamour and In Style. — Irin Carmon

DIFFERENT DIRECTION: The cover of the new Bergdorf Goodman magazine isn’t a typical one for the department store, but that’s the point, said creative director Aidan Kemp. In the new issue, customers will get a different vision of what Bergdorf’s has to offer, he added, apart from more traditional names like Chanel. Photographed in Iceland, the cover features a model wearing a Costume National satin dress with red-orange-colored tights and hot-pink gloves. “We could have gone with safe and beautiful, but this feels more modern and graphic,” Kemp offered. Readers will probably also notice a heftier issue from last September, as ad pages are up 15 percent. Inside, the magazine has contributions from GQ’s Style Guy, Glenn O’Brien, and a conversation between Gay Talese and Peter Kaplan on the future of print journalism. — A.W.
