MURDOCH GOES IN-HOUSE: Pursuits, the Wall Street Journal's planned high-end magazine launch, already has a place on executives' business cards and a looming launch date, Sept. 6. But it wasn't until Monday that the magazine had an official editor, Tina Gaudoin, who was the editor of The Times of London's Luxx, a quarterly launched in June. The magazine also appears to be the first juncture in which new Journal owner Rupert Murdoch and Robert Thomson — formerly editor of The Times of London, and now publisher of the Journal — put a firm stamp on the business daily. Gaudoin was the style editor of The Times of London's Saturday magazine starting in 2003, and also has worked as editorial director of iVillage UK, as founding editor of a British women's magazine called Frank and as deputy editor at Tatler. She also brings with her The Times of London's art director, Tomaso Capuano, who'll develop the design of Pursuits. He previously designed the Financial Times' How to Spend It magazine. — Irin Carmon
SEYMOUR'S POP ART: Peter Brant, the new sole owner of Interview magazine, is making waves as he revamps the publication following the departure of Ingrid Sischy and his ex-wife, Sandra Brant, from the title. But it turns out Brant's current wife, Stephanie Seymour, is dipping her toe into the media world this spring, too. Pop magazine's spring-summer 2008 issue, which hits newsstands Thursday, is almost entirely devoted to Seymour. The model and art collector appears in six fashion editorials in the magazine, and gives a lengthy interview about her career with writer Glenn O'Brien — who has just been named co-editorial director of Brant's Interview.
