katiegrand_leavingpop.jpgSo for once the gossip is actually true. Vogue UK confirmed the blog-o-sphere's suspicions yesterday, by confirming that Katie Grand will be joining the glossy stables at Condé Nast.

The founder of POP is heading for the publishers to launch a new, yet-to-be-announced, biannual style magazine. The title is said to be a more edgy, higher end style, with the first issue expected to launch in March.

"I can't wait to get started," she said. "I feel the time is ready for a new magazine, a new arena for new ideas. This time we'll have a larger format, bigger budgets and broader horizons than ever before. With the wholehearted support of Condé Nast, there will be nothing to limit our imagination."

Any ideas what will happen to POP then?
