LESS STYLE ALL AROUND: The Times isn’t the only paper trimming fashion coverage. The Houston Chronicle recently laid off style critic Clifford Pugh, who spent 15 years with the paper, during which time he launched Gloss, the Chronicle’s fashion monthly, and covered runway shows in New York, Milan and Paris. This departure comes shortly after another Hearst Newspapers title, the San Francisco Chronicle, offered fashion editor Sylvia Rubin a buyout, which she accepted. So is Hearst Newspapers scaling back its fashion and lifestyle coverage? It’s unclear. A spokesman said the company will continue to provide readers with the “best style-fashion coverage available.” He added, “This kind of content will come not just from journalists on staff, but from a wide variety of other sources, including the very rich vein provided by Hearst’s own high-quality magazines.”
