AOL Bloodbath: Stylelist Lays Off All Staffers Except for Dana Oliver

New, 5 comments

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We're hearing reports from AOL Editorial HQ that nearly all staffers at fashion and beauty blog Stylelist have been laid off—including Editorial Director of Women's & Lifestyle Programming Colleen Curtis. At time of publication, sources say that the only remaining staffer at Stylelist is beauty editor Dana Oliver. One source tells us: "It's not clear if there will even be a Stylelist after today."

This morning, AOL announced that it would lay off 900 employees. CNN reported that CEO Tim Armstrong intends to move towards "having 70% off its staff be in editorial or other content divisions. That's up from a little more than half currently." In a recent deal, AOL acquired the Huffington Post, making Arianna Huffington the new editor-in-chief of all Huffington Post and AOL editorial content.
