FIRST MOVES: Nina Garcia made her first hire in the fashion department at Marie Claire last week, poaching from her old stomping grounds at Elle. Nina Sterghiou will join Marie Claire as accessories director, replacing Heather Whittenberg. Sterghiou was hired full time at Elle in September 2007 as accessories editor, but freelanced for years at Harper’s Bazaar, Jane, New York, Men’s Vogue and Time Style & Design. She was also accessories editor at the defunct Vitals, which was edited by Elle’s current creative director Joe Zee. “Marie Claire is a ‘smart girl’s’ fashion magazine and I am really excited about bringing fashion and accessories in a new and cool way to a reader after my own heart,” said Sterghiou. She’ll be at the shows in Milan and Paris. — S.D.S.
