Memo Pad: Vogue on Film... Fade to Black... Revolving Door at OK...

R.J. Cutler may not have intended his film about Vogue to chronicle the last hurrah of the luxury boom but, as it turns out, it did.

CHANGING GEARS: Could ex-Condé Nast International honcho Bernd Runge be heading to the auction world? Sources said he’s in talks to join Phillips de Pury in London, starting in March. A Phillips spokeswoman declined to comment Tuesday. Runge had been president of Condé Nast Germany, as well as overseeing the New Markets Europe/Africa division and holding the title of vice president, Condé Nast International. He left late last year. Runge directed the company’s expansion into Russia with the launch of Russian Vogue, and oversaw moves into several other countries, for a total portfolio of 26 magazines in 10 countries. A spokeswoman for the company said Runge would not be replaced at this time, and that his duties likely would be assumed by existing management.
