Following his abrupt departure from GQ and the subsequent replacement for his column The Style Guy, Glenn O’Brien has been up to a lot. Firstly, he landed his own talk show on the new fashion network on Apple TV, Made2Measure. Now, he’s been named the editor-at-large for Maxim.
The struggling male-centric publication has been trying to turn its fortunes around by rebranding itself as more tasteful, and even debuted its first male cover star — Idris Elba. O’Brien will be replacing Kate Lanphear who only joined Maxim late last year to spear its turnaround. We’re hoping for good things from Glenn and the new Maxim.
