Allure Replaces Founding EIC Linda Wells With Nylon’s Michelle Lee
So that’s why Nylon’s former EIC Michelle Lee left the magazine. Fashionista’s Lauren Indvik just tweeted that Allure EIC Linda Wells is out and Lee will take the reigns as EIC for the beauty magazine.
WWD reports that Wells has been let go at Condé Nast and Lee’s appointment is effective immediately. Wells is the founding editor-in-chief of Allure, which began in 1991.
“When Linda Wells launched Allure, it broke new ground and redefined the beauty category, and she leaves us with that rich heritage to build upon,” Condé Nast president Bob Sauerberg said in a statement. “Today we begin a new phase of innovation for the brand, with Michelle paving the way for the next wave of consumers who crave interactive beauty content that’s both inspiring and approachable.”
