Kate Lanphear made the move to T, we're just as obsessed with her as during her Elle days,  
What did you do after you left Elle?
I went to Peru and hooked up with some shamen in the Andes. I was a big 2012 doomsayer.
You thought the world was going to end?
Absolutely! I wanted to take a vow of silence. They confiscate your phone, you can write, but you aren’t allowed to read. It was a fascinating exercise because all we do every day is talk. To experience that kind of quiet was kind of amazing. And then T called…
How’s life at The Times?
It’s incredible. I’m a journalist geek. I spend most of my days pinching myself.
Who have you been running into?
I’m always seeing Bill Cunningham in the lift. It’s the biggest compliment when Bill takes your photo. You also get really sad when he ignores you.
Which cafeteria is better? 
That’s a loaded question. 
Did you work on the shoot with Lee 
Radizwill?
I wish! It’s so beautiful. That would have been a career highlight for anyone. Deborah and her have become friends.
