Whitney Vargas Might be Next Up for NY Times Style Mag

A rumored promotion.

Now that Deborah Needleman has left her role as editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, the big question is who will succeed her?

The leading candidate appears to be executive editor Whitney Vargas. Vargas was named T’s executive editor last year. She previously worked with Needleman at WSJ. as fashion features director.

What’s next for Needleman? Nothing, for now. “I’m a little perverse, but I’ve quit companies [before],” she told The New York Post. “I want to take a break and spend more time alone. Reading. Thinking. Gardening. Basket weaving. No shit.”

No shit.
