Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Robin Givhan will return to the Washington Post in June as a fashion critic and writer, according to the paper's executive features editor Liz Seymour. She previously held the post of fashion editor before leaving in 2010.

She kept herself busy between the stints by writing intermittently for The Daily Beast and working as New York Magazine's The Cut as its fashion week correspondent. She's also writing a book: "The Battle of Versailles: The Night American Fashion Stumbled into the Spotlight and Made History." It'll be published in March.

To celebrate her return, take a walk to yesteryear when she was a guest on The Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert. This was after she won the Pulitzer Prize. (She can't be stopped.)
