The ladies over at Fashionista raise a good question about Style.com's shift to Fairchild to align more closely with W and WWD.com: Will Style.com start charging its readers? "It’s doubtful that a pay wall will come into play, but if it did, we do believe users would pay $25 to $50 per year to access the database." Makes sense, since WWD.com charges a subscription fee. Would you pay to use Style.com? [Fashionista]
