WSJ. Magazine Names Hilary Rhoda Contributor, Takes New Direction

>> Now that the Wall Street Journal has closed their fashion bureau and fashion blog to put more energy into their luxury magazine WSJ., it sounds like they're trying to up the ante on the magazine's fashion spreads, which have been mocked in the past.

For this Sunday's edition, they named Hilary Rhoda a contributor for just this issue — she has a swimsuit spread, shot in Miami (behind the scenes video) that looks like it could be a Mert and Marcus-lensed Louis Vuitton or Eres campaign — to recognize that "the work models put into photo shoots is so much more than just looking pretty and posing for a camera," according to a spokeswoman, who promises via email: "[Hilary's] role is a sign of the new direction WSJ. magazine is taking!  Expect to see creative and new contributors like this in the future."
