Robin Givhan, the Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist best known for her intelligent analyses (read: smart, but incredibly accessible) of fashion and style is changing outfits, so to speak. Givhan will be leaving her position at the Washington Post to join Tina Brown, the newly-installed editor-in-chief at Newsweek and The Daily Beast.
Givhan had been at the Post for 15 years, during the last two of which she actually resided in Washington to cover Michelle Obama. Not only does her departure for Newsweek signal a shift in her own career trajectory, but it also reflects a major change in what we might expect from Newsweek, a publication that's not exactly known for its past fashion and style coverage. Givhan's voice should lend some much-needed cultural and artistic insight to its pages.
