‘The Cut’ Names Lindsay Peoples Wagner As New Editor-In-Chief

Congratulations are in order!

New York Magazine recently announced that Lindsay Peoples Wagner would serve as the new editor-in-chief of The Cut, Essence reports. This the sector of their mag that covers all things style and culture. Peoples Wagner served as Market Editor for The Cut from 2015-2018, winning the ASME Next Award in 2017 and publishing the viral piece, “Everywhere and Nowhere,” an expose about what it means to be a Black person working in the fashion industry. 

Since 2018, Peoples Wagner has served as editor-in-chief at Teen Vogue, making history as the youngest EIC of a Condé Nast outlet at just 30 years old. During her tenure, she has been honored for her work, recognized in 2019 as one of Business of Fashion’s “BoF 500,” and again in 2020 on Forbes “30 under 30” list. 

In addition to her work in media, Peoples Wagner is also the co-founder of the Black in Fashion Council, an initiative focused on increasing representation of Black curators in the fashion and beauty industry. Now Peoples Wagner is excited to return to The Cut, continuing to champion diversity and inclusion in the industry as well as pushing the conversation forward at the publication. 

“We can enjoy fashion and want to enjoy some fun but also really care about the state of the world and where we are in politics. I think The Cut has done a really good job of not putting women in boxes,” Peoples Wagner said. 

Congratulations, Lindsay!
