Cover Battle: Fortune or T: The New York Times Style Magazine

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round features Fortune taking on T: The New York Times Style Magazine. Fortune wants to discuss Chinese-made airplanes, which made us wonder — does anyone actually care where the plane they’re in was produced? That would seem to be low on the list of concerns. Typically, this is what we’re asking while flying: 1) Am I going to die? 2) How much longer is the flight? 3) What was that noise? 4) Why aren’t I drinking more?

Two Canadian Gals, One Erotic Literary Magazine

AdultCoverFounding editor Sarah Nicole Prickett, who bills herself as a “reactionary socialite who writes a lot,” moved to New York from Canada in 2012. Her partner in Adult crime and fellow Canuck, creative director Berkeley Poole, is by-day a designer for Visionaire and V magazine.

The pair recently held an official launch party for the first issue of Adult, due at select newsstands in mid-November, and T: The New York Times Style Magazine‘s Alainna Lexie Beddie was there. Thinking of Adult as “magazine” is perhaps a bit of an insult; it’s put together like an art book, with a retail price tag to match ($20):

Despite the “Not for sale to minors” disclaimer on its cover, Prickett isn’t shy about hoping the young and curious find it, even if they have to steal it. “I want to go on the record as being very pro-minors,” she said. “I love teen girls.”

New York Times Says Fashion Photos Can Be Altered

Some drama occurred recently when Deborah Needleman, editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, said she considered adding some fat to a cover model she thought was too thin. Naturally some people were outraged, because they apparently have never picked up a magazine. Margaret Sullivan, the Times’ public editor, followed up on the situation, and found that the Times holds fashion photos to a different standard than news photos.

Michele McNally, the Times’ assistant managing editor for photography, explained, “Fashion is fantasy. Readers understand this. It’s totally manipulated, with everything done for aesthetics.” Philip Corbett, associate managing editor for standards, added, “This is a different genre of photography [than news]. It has different goals, different tools and techniques, and there is a different expectation on the part of the reader.”

In other words: Don’t be an idiot. Of course fashion photos are altered. If you’re upset by this, consider taking photos meant to sell material goods a little less seriously.

Deborah Needleman is Sorry There’s So Many White People in T

The first T: The New York Times Style Magazine under the guidance of Deborah Needleman hit newsstands this past Sunday. While the new T was packed with content and ads (the issue was so massive we considered doing bicep curls with it), something else stuck out to readers: The models featured were pretty much all white.

To her credit, Needleman realized and regretted the overwhelming whiteness found within T’s pages. In a response to the Times’ public editor, she pledged to correct the discrepancy going forward:
