Stella Bugbee, former editor-in-chief of New York Magazine’s The Cut, has found herself a new home at The New York Times. The New York Times announced that she will be joining the publication as Styles editor beginning her new role on June 21.
“Stella brings to The Times a broad and ambitious vision for Styles coverage, one that embraces fashion and lifestyle even as it explores issues of politics, gender, power and fame,” said The Times in a note sent to staffers. “As the nation and world cautiously start to reopen in the wake of the last 15 months of fear and grief and lives lived largely at home, she’ll help us document the rebirth of how we live, how we present and how we consume.”
Bugbee succeeds Choire Sicha, who will be heading to Bugbee’s former employer, New York Magazine, as editor-at-large. Sicha stepped down as editor of The New York Times Styles desk after four years to take on a role at the Times’ newsletter division.
