Those who have anxiously been awaiting Deborah Needleman’s debut issue for T: The New York Times Style Magazine, due out in February, might be a bit surprised by her cover choice. The Daily hears that 79-year-old socialite and sister to Jackie O., Lee Radziwill, will make the premiere cover of Needleman’s version of T. Whatâ€™s more, we hear that another upcoming cover is slated to feature 82-year-old socialite and philanthropist, Deeda Blair. When we reached out to The New York Times, they declined to comment. This would be quite the departure from Sally Singerâ€™s ultra-hip covers featuring the likes of Esperanza Spalding, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lana Del Rey. However, with an average age for readership at age 54 and an average household income of $160,784 for print, Needleman may be looking to target a new (albeit much older) audience. Here come the ladies who lunch. Betsy Bloomingdale, call your publicist!
