>> It seems the Derek Blasberg and Style.com saga may have come to a close. After being accused of taking money from brands in exchange for posts, Blasberg (who was named editor-at-large at Style.com last December), saw his byline quietly drop off the Style.com blog roster. Although he's still listed as a "contributor," his last post for the site was in June, just before the accusations of misconduct (which Blasberg fiercely denies, and which Style.com has never confirmed).
Now comes a memo from the Hearst PR department that Blasberg — who is also editor-at-large at Harper's Bazaar — will be a permanent Fashion Week fixture on Bazaar.com. According to publicist Michael Volpatt, who handles Hearst Digital PR, "Blasberg takes site visitors front-row, backstage, and into the most exclusive Fashion Week parties, reporting daily on the trends, the faces, the hot spots, what everyone’s wearing and of course, the season's news-making fashion. This can be found right on the home page."
