Deborah Needleman will leave WSJ, the Wall Street Journal‘s glossy mag, to become the new editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, it was announced today.
The not-unexpected news comes after the abrupt departure of Sally Singer at the end of the summer.

We have the answer to approximately 3.4 of those five questions, but will only answer two, right here in your Wednesday Evening Press Clips:

Fashion Week 2011
At the New York Academy of Art’s Tribeca Ball, the city gathered to honor–and possibly buy!–the work of academy students, displayed over the academy’s five floors. This wasn’t idle gazing: Naomi Watts was spotted deep in conversation with several young artists. “I bought something downstairs! It will make a lot of sense to my children,” Read More
The Rag and Bone show was so oversubscribed that the organizers needed a separate room for the overflow. The people seated in the wallflower room had the forlorn air of a bunch of teenagers who hadn’t been asked to the prom so, instead of taking our seat in there, we opted to stand and watch the action Read More
