CUTTING OUT: After only a year at New York magazine’s fashion blog-turned-Web site The Cut, Stephanie Trong has left her post as editorial director. When editors gathered Aug. 8 to introduce the new Web site to journalists, Trong was absent. A spokeswoman said Trong had been on a personal leave of absence and voluntarily decided not to return to the company. Sources speculated that Trong, who previously was deputy digital editor at Lucky, was asked not to return.
