Elle appoints Deputy Editor

Lotte Jeffs will join Elle on 13 July and will report to Lorraine Candy, Editor-in-Chief.

Working in partnership with Lorraine, she will be responsible for managing editorial strategy across all of Elle’s platforms, driving editorial innovation for the brand and strengthening its powerful digital footprint.

Lotte is currently Acting Deputy Editor at the Evening Standard’s ES Magazine where she has worked since 2010, and was previously its Features Editor. She has also contributed to national newspapers including The Guardian, The Observer and is a regular writer for Elle.

Lorraine Candy says: “I am excited by Lotte's appointment as we move on to more innovative and groundbreaking editorial projects for Elle in its 30th birthday year. She is bringing some unique ideas to us, which will further cement our profile as the monthly glossy with an influential voice in society today. "

Lotte Jeffs says: “I’ve been a fan of Elle since I was teenager, when I would rip out its fashion spreads and stick them on my bedroom wall, so I am thrilled to be joining such a consistently brilliant title. Elle has continued to grow and evolve with its readers and is now at the forefront of new thinking in the industry. I’m extremely excited to be joining Lorraine and the team at a time of such innovation, and I hope my ideas and experience at ES will bring a fresh perspective to such a hugely successful brand.”

Lotte replaces Natasha Pearlman, who left Elle in May to become Editor of Grazia.
