Cathy Horyn, the acerbic fashion editor of the Washington Post, has resigned, effective Dec. 1. She will become a contributing editor at Vogue and Vanity Fair, both Conde Nast magazines.
Horyn will remain in Washington. She said she is taking the new job because it will give her an opportunity to write on other topics besides fashion.
“I have my choice of subject,” Horyn said. “I’ll be doing a lot of reporting and traveling, doing everything from fashion to movie people to essays — it can be almost anything.”
The Bowery Bar continues as the hottest spot around. Saturday night Ian Schrager, Norma Kamali, Christ Zois, Ross Bleckner, Robert Isabell, Kal Ruttenstein, Victor Alfaro, Carré Otis, Joy Henderiks, Kate Moss, Claude Montana and Wallis Franken, Iman, Ross Bleckner and Michael Goff were all there.
Match, another hot downtown spot, is heading uptown. One of SoHo’s most popular late-night boites will open a second space on 60th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues sometime in February, and Billy Gilroy has hired Alexis Stewart to provide a tonier decor for the new locale.
