Glamour has found the worthy successor from the halls of Hearst for the executive beauty director role in wake of Felicia Milewicz’s November 2012 departure: Ying Chu is decamping from Marie Claire to take the top-tier gig. Chu will join the 4 Times Square glossy in late January after five years as beauty and health director at Marie Claire. Chu’s industry entré was as an intern at Flare in the beauty ed’s native Canada—she was born in Shanghai, bred in British Columbia, and educated at Ryerson University. Before joining MC in 2007, Chu spent a year apiece at Vogue and Seventeen after a stint at erstwhile mag Suede, started by Chu’s former boss at Flare.
Intermix’s 2013 New Year’s resolution: fall into the Gap. On December 31, 2012, the multi-brand, specialty store was scooped up by Gap Inc. for $130 million in cash, adding to the retail behemoth’s existing portfolio of brands that includes Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Piperlime, and Athleta. Intermix, the boutique chain which currently counts 32 locations throughout North America, stocking luxury and contemporary ready-to-wear and accessories for women, had been searching for a partner to help further its expansion since late last year. Intermix enlisted investment banking firm, The Sage Group, to aid in the acquisition quest in August; the two retailers have been in talks since early December.
