Elle’s Anne Slowey Exits Her Role | People on the Move — 2.1.17
Olivia Nuzzi joins New York as Washington correspondent, Real Simple finds a new digital director, and more...
Elle magazine’s Anne Slowey is no longer fashion news editor for the brand. Slowey, who’d been with the title since 1998, will transition to a new role as a contributing writer for the magazine, according to Page Six.
It’s reported that she’ll also pursue short-film and brand marketing now that her role at the brand has changed.
Slowey was known as a guest on “Project Runway” and “Stylista” — the 2008 reality show that was set at Elle.
Here are the rest of this week’s people on the move:
Olivia Nuzzi is joining New York magazine as Washington correspondent, covering the Trump administration and Congress. Since 2014, she has been a political reporter at the Daily Beast.
Laura Schocker has been named Real Simple’s new digital director. Lori Leibovich, who recently moved into the role of digital director of women’s content at Time Inc., held the role most recently. Schocker was previously interim digital director at the brand.
Additionally, Rebecca Longshore will begin as Real Simple’s social media manager in March. She’s new to the brand, but not Time Inc. — she spent the past three years working at MyRecipes and Cooking Light, most recently as the multimedia editor for both brands.
Imelme Umana, class of Harvard Law School ’18, has become the first Black woman elected president of Harvard’s Law Review. Her appointment echoes that of Barack Obama, who became the first Black man elected president of the 130-year-old title in 1990.
