I am so beyond happy for Elaine!
I remember being so excited last year when she was made editor at Teen Vogue and now this!? Elaine Welteroth has officially been named Editor-in-Chief at Teen Vogue. Since her last promotion, she's definitely had a part in increasing the mag's readership, visibility and relevance beyond just fashion and beauty.
Elaine got her start in media with an internship at Ebony Magazine, which turned into a permanent position as Beauty & Style Editor from '08-'11. She headed over to Condé Nast in '11, holding the same position and then was promoted to Senior Beauty Editor. The following year, she made history by becoming the first African American to hold the position of Beauty & Health Director for Teen Vogue. She replaced the founding EIC Amy Astley as editor in 2016, and now she's officially the EIC of Teen Vogue.
Seeing what she's done with the Teen Vogue brand and the firsts the brand has experienced thus far has me so excited to witness what Elaine will do next! I'm so beyond proud of her growth and her hustle to get here. It definitely gives me that extra push to fight for my dreams!
Congratulations are in order, and I wish much success to Elaine in her new position!
