Stella Bugbee is The New York Times' new Styles editor
The New York Times announced on Wednesday that New York Magazine's Stella Bugbee, known for presiding over The Cut for many years, will be joining the team as the new Styles editor. She replaces Choire Sicha, who will soon be joining New York Magazine.
