Let the poaching begin.
Kristina O’Neill has been in her new role as editor-in-chief of WSJ for only one week (she officially started on October 29), but she’s already poached at least one senior editor from Harper’s Bazaar, where she previously worked for 10 years.
Despite some recent editorial shakeups, WSJ Magazine successfully hosted its second annual Innovator of the Year Awards at the MoMA last night.
Since new T EIC Deborah Needleman has only been at her new job for all of three days, she hasn’t really been divulging much about her plans for the magazine to the press yet.

This week in Editorial Musical Chairs, two former T employees found new jobs. Bifen Xu, formerly T‘s associate fashion editor, has been named fashion editor at New York Magazine. T‘s former fashion market editor Melissa Ventosa Martin is now style director at Glamour.
Town & Country snapped up W‘s Jamie Rosen to fill Janet Carlson’s position as beauty director. Town & Country‘s former beauty and health editor (which is different from beauty director) Nina Judar was named Good Housekeeping‘s beauty director.
WSJ‘s new EIC Deborah Needleman brought on another former Domino staffer–Lauren Goodman–to consult on fashion coverage for the Wall Street Journal‘s new lifestyle section.
Ben Reardon, former editor of i-D has been named editor of British GQ Style. He has been replaced by former deputy editor Holly Shackelton.
This week in Editorial Musical Chairs, we have some pretty major changes. Perhaps most notably, Sally Singer made her first couple of major hires at T. She brought on her friend Michelle Kessler-Sanders as fashion director, squashing those Meredith Melling-Burke rumors. She also snapped up former V/V Man editor Jacob Brown as T’s new features director. He will replace Armand Limnander, who, as we’ve already reported, followed Stefano Tonchi to W.
Also big news – both WSJ and Vogue Russia have new Editors in Chief. Deborah Needleman, former EIC of Domino (R.I.P.), will take on the head role at WSJ. Aliona Doletskaya resigned as EIC of Vogue Russia just last week and they’ve already found a replacement in former Tatler Russia EIC Victoria Davydova.
