February 14, 2013 BY CAPSULESNEWS

While the fashion set is still jaunting around New York, with their eyes turned to London, Milan and Paris, Fashion Week Daily took a time out from Autumn/Winter collections to sit down with Deborah Needleman about her time at T. Shes been at the publication for five months and has already made significant strides towards putting her stamp on everything from the masthead (including the addition of a poetry editor) to the logo.

If youve been following the media moves that have been happening over the past six months, its not a shocker that there is more news from Joanna Coles desk at Cosmo. Longtime fashion director Michelle McCool has departed after ten years in order to pursue other interests. Expect a swift announcement regarding her replacement. Given that Ms. Coles has been trying to beef up the magazines fashion cred, it makes sense that a big, bold name might be heading to the ladies magazine.

Marie Claire also has had a round of announcements recently, and this week is no different. Nina Sterghiou has added style director to her title and now serves as style and market director. There is also a new fashion editor at large in Laura Ferrara. Ferrara has previously served as editor at Vogue, Teen Vogue, InStyle and Jane. We can also announce that Jennifer Goldstein, formerly beauty director of Prevention, has joined Marie Claire as executive beauty and health editor. Shes still currently a contributing editor at Inked.

The monthly luxury mag, Scene, has brought on Eliza Krpoyan as associate editor. She left her contributing editor post at Modern Luxury in December, after over two years there.

And finally, Harpers Bazaar is welcoming back a friendly face. Jennifer Alfano, who was a contributing editor from 2003-2006 is returning as fashion features director. She plans to continue her role as editor and blogger of Keep It Chic.
