Five Months Later: What’s Happened to Everyone at Men’s Vogue

Earlier this week we discovered that Michael Mraz and Hudson Morgan, in the free time that the media bestowed upon them after Men’s Vogue shuttered, wrote a seemingly awesome screenplay and are shopping it around. And it got us to thinking: What happened to the rest of Mogue? An entire magazine existed one day, with a full staff, and then one day it didn’t. This might be an interesting project, to track down an entire masthead’s worth of laid-off staffers. So we got a former intern from the magazine, Andrew J. Nusca, to hunt down as many of his colleagues as he could find. After the jump, we have details on what nearly every member of the edit staff is up to now. Surprisingly few of these former Condé Nasties are traveling around Latin America to find themselves, which comes as something of a relief. If we lost our jobs, we’d be traveling around our parents’ kitchen to find the liquor.
