As the publishing industry and magazine die-hards wait with bated breath to see how W transitions from hardcore fashion glossy to its new lifestyle incarnation, word on the street says that the magazine's new editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi has landed Mad Men star Jon Hamm and Vicky Cristina Barcelona star Rebecca Hall for his first cover—on newsstands this August.
Yes, while the rest of the world is just stepping into the summer season, magazines are already over it and onto fall. Here are the rest of the known quantities on August covers:
· Vanity Fair has Angelina Jolie
· Elle lands Drew Barrymore
· Lucky with "old reliable" (WWD's words, not ours!) Ali Larter
· Marie Claire has Dakota Fanning
· Summer's Over [WWD]
