commerical instincts are renowned, having editing in rapid succession Hearst Magazines' Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan before jumping in 1998 to Conde Nast Publications' Glamour. But as evidenced by double-digit newsstand sales declines at Glamour for the first half of this year, her golden touch appeared to have failed her recently.

She has also left bruises in her hard-charging career.

She fell out of favor at Conde Nast when, as editor of Glamour, she allegedly openly campaigned for the editor's position of Hearst Magazines' Harper's Bazaar. Near the end of her tenure at Conde Nast, she alientated Vogue editor Anna Wintour by running Catherine Zeta Jones on Glamour's cover one month before Vogue had planned to.

Ms. Fuller had been consulting for Meredith Corp. on its long-running younger-skewing shelter project, Living Room, which is currently schedulde to publish a third test issue later this year.
