The Cut – About Us

The Cut – About Us

The Cut launched in 2008 as New York’s corner of the fashion world, and it quickly fostered a wide readership. In 2012, it expanded to apply its distinct voice and lens to cover women’s lives and interests, and a 2017 redesign cemented its place as a leading digital lifestyle publication. Today, the Cut’s mission is to meet you, the readers, where you are, in your careers, relationships, styles, and skin-care routines, to deliver authoritative service, thought-provoking reporting, and intimate personal essays that sharpen your ideas and enter your group chats.

We create and cultivate inclusive, forward-thinking conversations about the issues that matter to you most: politics, feminism, work, money, relationships, mental health, style, pop culture, parenting, and more. We organize these stories across our four verticals — Style, Self, Culture, and Power — though they’re not mutually exclusive.

The Cut was named website of the year on Adweek’s Publishing Hot List in 2018 and was a finalist for the National Magazine Award for Best Website (Service and Lifestyle) in 2019. New York Magazine, including the Cut, was a finalist for the National Magazine Award for General Excellence (News, Sports, and Entertainment) in 2019, 2020, and 2022, and the Cut was part of New York’s submission for its 2018 National Magazine Award win for Best Website. The Cut’s editor-in-chief, Lindsay Peoples, was honored with the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award in 2022 and an ASME Next Award in 2017. Its first podcast, The Cut on Tuesdays, won the 2020 Gracie Award for Best Podcast (Lifestyle), while the Cut and New York writer-at-large Rebecca Traister won the 2018 National Magazine Award for columns and commentary. The 2015 New York Magazine cover story on Bill Cosby’s accusers that ran on the Cut won the 2016 George Polk Award for magazine reporting.

Since 2019, New York has been a part of Vox Media, the leading modern media company, whose portfolio features nearly 20 popular and influential editorial properties, including (in addition to the New York brands) Vox, Eater, NowThis, SB Nation, The Dodo, and The Verge. The Vox Media Podcast Network is one of the largest collections of popular podcasts, spanning technology, news, pop culture, emerging trends, and more. Vox Media Studios is the award-winning nonfiction production and distribution studio for multiple TV and streaming partners.
