Memo Pad: Women's World... High-Level Cuts... Karl in Argentina...

Annie Leibovitz revealed she’s about to photograph Justice Sonia Sotomayor for Vogue.

HIGH-LEVEL CUTS: The layoffs at Condé Nast are winding down, although several high-level editors continue to exit. At Details, executive editor Greg Williams and fashion director Michael Macko were let go from the magazine Tuesday. Williams had been with Details for two years, while Macko left behind a decade-long tenure at Saks Fifth Avenue to join Details in spring of 2008. At Lucky, special projects director Allyson Waterman was let go, as the magazine has cut back on its events and uses other staffers for its television appearances.

Details cut ad sales positions last week, while Teen Vogue eliminated several staff positions on the sales side on Tuesday. But there were no cuts to the editorial staff since that department will meet its budget targets by eliminating previously unfilled positions and trimming other expenses. Teen Vogue is also working on additional projects, said to include another television show and a special prom insert that will come packaged with the March edition. — Stephanie D.
