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.

Teen Vogue continues to undergo changes beyond the business side reshuffling that a spokesperson confirmed last week. Sources close to Vogue now confirm that Teen Vogue digital director Phillip Picardi is reporting to Vogue site director Ben Berentson (while still also reporting to Teen Vogue EIC Amy Astley and Condé Nast's head of digital, Fred Santarpia). Teen Vogue's digital team will move to the same floor as, though will continue to publish content on its own site.

This is reminiscent of's transition to, a subset of Vogue. Last November,'s EIC Dirk Standen and publisher Matt Rice both began reporting to VogueStanden to Anna Wintour, and Rice to Vogue publisher Susan Plagemann, who as of last week is now also overseeing the Teen Vogue business. staffers moved to the floor, but by April it was announced that would cease editorial operations and migrate to; layoffs followed. ( is set to become an ecommerce site.)

On another Condé Nast floor, is transitioning over to, a subset of GQ that the brand is trying to amp up, while Details, the magazine, is going out of print. Many believe Teen Vogue's print property is in danger of the same fate, though Condé remains tight-lipped about any changes coming to the print product or staff.
