This week New York magazine’s expanding fashion blog, The Cut, added its first-ever beauty editor, Christina Han. Ms. Han jumped from Conde Nast, where she did stints at W and Vogue. Last week, the site added Gawker writer Maureen O’Connor as a features editor—another first—and told WWD that it would hire another fashion blogger.
Overseen by Stephanie Trong (a Jane and Lucky alumna), The Cut recently lost its founding editor Amy Odell to BuzzFeed, where she launched the women’s vertical Shift. But judging from The Cut’s recent hires, New York’s online editorial team has its own shift in the works.
Elsewhere at New York: the magazine debuted a new weekly column, Ask a Best Doctor, in the style of The Hairpin’s growing cache of lifestyle experts (Ask a Dude, a Lady, a Clean Person, a Humanities Grad Student…), and lost associate editor Ben Mathis-Lilley, who followed Ms. Odell to BuzzFeed.
