It’s an impressive coup for Moda Operandi, which, according to the paper, also managed to poach Neiman Marcus’ Roopal Patel, especially since the site only just launched in February. It’s also a huge loss for Marie Claire, who really used Taylor in all her fashion-forward, unbelievably gorgeous, street-style-fodder, glory as the poster child for their recent fashion-y makeover, having wooed her away from her former post at Teen Vogue with, we assume, a hefty paycheck and lots of perks.
While there’s no word yet on who will replace Taylor at MC, one thing’s for sure: Moda Operandi’s newly stacked team, which includes founders Lauren Santo Domingo and Aslaug Magnusdottir, is going to make street style photographers’ heads explode come fashion week. We can’t wait.
As for who will replace Tomasi? They need another gorgeous street style candy for that show-pony spot and we think poaching from Teen Vogue again to nab the stunning Shiona Turini would be an excellent choice. Or the equally street-style friendly Mary Kate Steinmiller.
