From Jeff Bercovici at WWD:

MORE FOR MORRISON: So much for the speculation that Cathy Horyn might leave The New York Times to replace Michael Roberts at The New Yorker. Susan Morrison, who was already editing the title's two annual style issues, has been appointed fashion editor, succeeding Roberts, who left in April to join Vanity Fair. Morrison, a veteran of Vogue, Spy and the New York Observer, will continue to serve as articles editor while overseeing the magazine's fashion and design coverage — such as this week's story on Cristobal Balenciaga, by Judith Thurman.

Coincidentally, a reader emailed me a few days ago to ask where the heck Thurman had been lately:

Judith Thurman has not written for The New Yorker this year. Do you know why? Her last article for the magazine appeared last fall—an article about tofu in Japan.

You have your answer! And here's the Balenciaga piece.
