We are totally delighted to announce that ELLE Magazine has a new Editor-in-Chief.

It's none other than our own Anne-Marie Curtis who, after 12 years at the magazine, will be stepping up from her role as Fashion Director and taking on the fresh and exciting new challenge as Editor-in-Chief of the UK edition of the world's biggest media fashion brand.

After over a decade at ELLE, Anne-Marie has played a crucial role in both the creative and commercial success of the brand and certainly the magazine's fashion content and style aesthetic wouldn't be what it is today had it not been for her.

Anne-Marie began her career in fashion in the early 90s. She became Fashion Director and a founding member of Wallpaper*, launching the title and helping to grow the brand to incredible success, before consulting for many of the UK's leading fashion brands and eventually joining ELLE in 2004.

Of her assumption of the Editor-in-Chief role at ELLE UK, Anne-Marie says:

'I have been passionate about ELLE magazine ever since I bought the first issue in 1985 when ELLE first launched in the UK. I am truly honoured to be taking the helm of such an incredible brand at such an exciting time in media. This is my dream job and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to take ELLE to new creative and editorial heights.'

Jacqui Cave, Group Publishing Director, ELLE UK, says:

'The calibre of applicants for the role of Editor-in-Chief of ELLE UK was incredibly strong, but Anne-Marie was the outstanding candidate. Her intimate knowledge and understanding of the ELLE DNA and the spirit of the ELLE woman enabled her to present a creative vision for the magazine and the ELLE business that was simply outstanding. I'm incredibly excited to be working with her in her new role as Editor-in-Chief and realising both our creative and commercial ambitions for the ELLE brand.'

James Wildman, CEO, Hearst Magazines UK, says:

'What a great way to kick off my first week at Hearst UK by sharing such exciting news. Anne-Marie has that rare quality of being both creative and commercial and I look forward to building the ELLE business with her, Jacqui Cave and the ELLE team.'

Anne-Marie Curtis commences her role with immediate effect.
