The New Editor of the New York Times' Styles Section Has Even Less Style Than the Last One

Stuart Emmrich is now overseeing the Thursday and Sunday Styles sections at the Times. Who is overseeing his wardrobe, which obviously doesn't include any V-neck undershirts? Probably not his fuddy-duddy predecessor Trip Gabriel. Someone needs a makeover!

Gabriel (right), who was certainly not the fashion icon that the Styles needed, is returning to being an education reporter, which is a natural transition after talking about mascara and fancy frocks for the past 12 years. Emmrich, who was the paper's travel editor, is transition to his new job looking a bit more Joe the Plumber than Hamish Bowles. Maybe this is like a Jose Eber thing, because he had horrible hair but could give a good cut. Maybe Emmrich in his bland blue button-down and visible Hanes tagless-T undershirt can dress you up nice? Guess we'll have to wait and see!
