Memo Pad: Hearst Mag Worries... Maxim for Women?... Politics and Media...

Hearst Magazines is trying to trim its costs as the publishing industry retrenches in a shrinking economy.


VANITY FARE: For their first official task as international editors for Vanity Fair’s European editions, Ingrid Sischy and Sandra Brant hosted a post-Chanel party dinner on Tuesday night at — where else? — The Waverly Inn. Sischy, who is also a contributing editor for Vanity Fair in the U.S., described the scene as reminiscent of a dinner party in Spain, as guests didn’t take their seats until around 11 p.m. Those who attended, including Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Olivier Theyskens, Kate Bosworth, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jeff Koons, Julian Schnabel, the Scissor Sisters, Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Rufus Wainwright, Bruce Weber, Franca Sozzani and Carine Roitfeld, were served autumn soup, chicken pot pie, steak and salmon. Meanwhile, Karl Lagerfeld was treated to a separate menu of tuna tartare (a triple order), Diet Coke, grilled salmon and grilled pineapple — a special request the kitchen made just for the designer.
