Thursday night, the Wall Street Journal's upcoming glossy magazine, WSJ., hosted a party at Ago in the Greenwich Hotel to introduce its editorial team. If the crowd or the space is any indication of the upcoming magazine, we can expect a lot of fashion, glamour, beauty, and luxury when the magazine launches in September. Mixing it up over peach-flavored martinis in the Robert DeNiro-owned space were designers Cynthia Rowley, Tory Burch, Nanette Lepore, Carlos Miele and Lucy Sykes-Rellie (former fashion director of Marie Claire), along with assorted bold names such as Sykes-Rellie's husband Euan Rellie, Rory Tahari, storied creative director Kate Schelter, and socialite/publicist Annelise Peterson.
Below, get to know the faces and names of the new, and glamorous, WSJ.
