Media Diary: Tom expects to put on the style
Monday 05 September 2011
It used to be that journalists just sourced stories but it’s no longer merely about the notepad and pencil. In the latest extension of the role, Esquire has appointed its first “Entertainment Director”. Not only will Tom Macklin be expected to negotiate celebrity cover shots for the men’s magazine but he is tasked with creating fabulous guest lists of the “famous and stylish” for the title’s events. He previously worked at Elle magazine – where he managed the Elle Style Awards and landed Kristen Stewart and Emma Watson for covers – and before that was a PR for such glitzy brands as Tiffany & Co and Dior. “I look forward to delivering an unrivalled run of celebrity exclusives and event initiatives,” he says.
In memory of the fashion photographer Corinne Day, who died just over a year ago at the age of 48, the auctioneer Bonhams is to offer for sale the picture she took of Kate Moss for the February 1991 issue of fashion bible The Face. The print has attracted a pre-sale estimate of £1,000–£1,500.
