Following her “abrupt departure” from Vogue last Friday, ex-senior accessories editor, Filipa Fino, is fording the river denial  over speculation that she was fired for lining her closet with pilfered pendants and her pockets with outside consulting gigs.

Vogues Filipa Fino Says She Wasnt Fired, Probably Was

Fino maintains her innocence, speaking to that beacon of journalistic integrity, Page Six: ”I’ve never kept anything that wasn’t gifted to me”


“I never took them [offers to consult], because you’re not allowed to….”

Well, gifting is commonplace, and sometimes I gift things to myself by stuffing them into my bag and sprinting away in my stilettoes. It’s a gift!

As for consulting, Fino will now be free to pursue that to her heart’s desire. She’s launched her own consultancy, as of Monday, and is also planning on starting an accessories blog.

Girl works fast. Fino claims that her being fired is just a rumor and that upon leaving she left Vogue‘s editrix-in-chief,  Anna Wintour an email. After 11 years of working together that seems fitting since speaking directly to Anna Wintour is, as we all know, verboten. [Page Six]

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester at
