Kate Lanphear Named Style Director at T Magazine.
Kate Lanphear has found a new job after leaving her position as Elle's style director in November.
Journalist Jim Shi tweeted on Monday that "Lanphear has joined T: The New York Times Style
Magazine as style director. She'll be at the upcoming women's shows with Team T." The Times' official communications account later confirmed the news by tweeting, "Welcome to Kate Lanphear, new Style Director of @TMagazine."
Lanphear has been the subject of a number of job-related rumors over the past several months. In October, she was mentioned as a possible replacement for Deborah Needleman, who left WSJ. Magazine to take over T in September. In November, some believed she was headed to a start-up magazine called Editorialist.
She's the newest big-name addition to the team since stylist Joe McKenna was named the magazine's fashion director at large in November.
