GQ Scores LeBron James... Glamour Hires Anne Christensen... New Faces...

GQ has scored LeBron James for its September cover. Also, Glamour has signed on Anne Christensen as executive fashion director.

FASHION STATEMENT: Glamour has signed on Anne Christensen, formerly women’s fashion director at T: The New York Times Style Magazine, as executive fashion director, effective Aug. 24. She succeeds the magazine’s longtime fashion director, Xanthipi Joannides, who left last month. As for Christensen’s freelance work (which she was able to do while at T, since she was on contract), a spokeswoman for the Cindi Leive-helmed title noted: “[Christensen] has a select number of commitments that she will fulfill,” but emphasized, “This is a full-time position.” Translation: No more freelance. We think. In addition, Leive told WWD she plans to “significantly increase” fashion pages in the magazine. Christensen had been a finalist for the editor in chief’s slot at T, but those spoils ultimately went to Sally Singer, formerly of Vogue.
