>> Robin Givhan, a 15-year Washington Post veteran and fashion editor who was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for criticism in 2006, is leaving the paper to join Tina Brown's Newsweek and The Daily Beast as a special correspondent for style and culture. She will continue to be based in DC and begins her new position on Jan. 10.
"I obviously didn't make the decision to leave quickly or without a lot of soul-searching," Givhan told WWD. "I've been a sniffling, blubbering wreck for the last few days. The Post has been an unbelievable place to work. But I think it was time for me to have a new adventure, and Tina's vision of what Newsweek can be is incredibly enticing and, I think, spot-on."
