New York Loses Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

ShutterstockAdrianaLimaThere was a bit of a New York fashion bombshell dropped this morning across the pond at Victoria’s Secret’s Bond Street store in London. Model Adriana Lima, dressed according to The Cut contributor Hattie Criswell in “exactly what any of us would choose for a breakfast event: a jeweled cut-out dress with generous sideboob,” announced – together with Candice Swanepoel and company CMO Ed Razeck - that the chain’s next annual fashion show will be held at Earls Court in London.

During the press conference, Lima came up with one logical and one not-so-logical celebrity as possible UK first-row guests:

Lima seemed more interested in which Brits would be in the audience for the show. “There are a bunch that we’d like to invite,” she said, giggling. “I’d love to see Elton John because I’m a big fan — I really love him. Hopefully, also — I’d like to invite Prince Harry.”

New York Debuts Revamped ‘The Cut’

The bigger, better version of New York’s “The Cut,” is here. The new stand alone site — meant to compete with the likes of Jezebel and Vogue — certainly looks better than the old one. The photographs stand out more, the overall look is slicker and the editorial is divided into five, easy-to-locate sections — Fashions, Beauty, Goods, Fame, and Love & War, which will be filled with up to 40 new piece per day.

“New York has a long history publishing compelling fashion content in print, and, for the last four years, covering fashion news online,” said New York’s editor-in-chief Adam Moss, in a press release. “The Cut is far more ambitious—an immersive experience that has both the high impact visual quality of a glossy and the loose dynamism of the web.”

The Cut is led by creative director Stella Bugbee; features editor Maureen O’Connor; senior editor Charlotte Cowles; and beauty editor Christina Han.

New York’s The Cut Takes Aim at Vogue and Jezebel

New York’s fashion blog The Cut is getting set to expand, and so it is setting its sights high. According to The New York Times, The Cut is set to grow the week of August 13, backed by better coverage of fashion shows and new content overseen by the likes of former Gawker staffer Maureen O’Connor.

The goal? To take on Vogue and Jezebel. Adam Moss, New York’s editor-in-chief, told the Times that The Cut will be ”a high-end fashion magazine with the scrappiness of a blog.”

The Cut’s growth will surely generate more interest from fashion advertisers, who already like New York. The Times reports that fashion advertising rose by 34 percent this year, and beauty product ads increased by a whopping 100 percent.

New York’s ‘The Cut’ Adds Gawker Writer

New York’s fashion blog, The Cut, has added Maureen O’Connor as its new Features Editor, according to WWD. O’Connor comes to The Cut from Gawker, where she has worked since 2009. Prior to that she contributed to The Daily Beast.

According to a New York spokesperson, O’Connor will be tasked with appointing features for the blog among other duties.

O’Connor’s last day at Gawker is this Friday.

NYMag.com Goes Mobile

mnymag.jpgUnlike, say, Conde Nast no one can ever accuse New York magazine of being afraid to embrace the Internet. They have more blogs over there than we know what to do with. And now you can get them all on the move! NYMag.com has just launched a beta mobile site featuring content from Daily Intel, The Cut, Grub Street, and Vulture. Per the release:

The blogs have proven to be powerful traffic drivers on nymag.com, generating nearly 10 million page views in November 2008, and therefore bring a devoted readership that will be invited to follow the blogs from browser-enabled phones, Blackberries and iPhones.

Full release after the jump.
