JOURNAL ENTRY: While Sally Singer handed over her latest cover of T: The New York Times Style Magazine to the relatively unknown jazz singer Esperanza Spalding, editor Deborah Needleman is going conventional: Rachel Weisz is WSJ’s September cover girl.
On the cover, Weisz is dressed in an Alexander McQueen herringbone trench and is standing in a pose that reveals plenty. The September issue also includes an interview with Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy and an eight-page spread that shows off the back rooms and ateliers of Hermès.

Needleman’s first September issue delivers some good news: WSJ clocks in at 124 total pages and 57 ad pages — both records for the three-year-old magazine. A Wall Street Journal spokeswoman said that its ad performance is a 52 percent jump over last year’s September issue.
The issue comes out on August 27.
