Since Lucy Yeomans' surprise announcement back in March that she was leaving her editor's role at Harper's Bazaar to head up the editorial team at Net-A-Porter, not much was said about her replacement but today, Justine Picardie was confirmed as the magazine's new editor-in-chief.
Picardie isn't new to fashion. In the past she's served as columnist for the Telegraph, a contributing fashion editor at Stella and as the features editor at Vogue so the move seems like a natural step. 'Bazaar has an inspiring heritage as a luxury brand from the days of Carmel Snow, Alexey Brodovitch and Diana Vreeland, to Fabien Baron and Liz Tilberis, and I hope to celebrate the creativity and editorial ambition of the title with the same dedication as my predecessors,' she said in a statement.
It may be New York Fashion Week but in London we're all getting ready for tomorrow's ELLE Style Awards. Now in its 15th year, the event will be held at London's Savoy Hotel and Alexa Chung will serve as host again for the fourth time
"I'm very excited to be hosting the ELLE Style Awards for the fourth time," Chung said in a statement. "It's always a great night and amazing to be in the same room as so many fashion gods!" For the magazine, Chung was the perfect choice. "Alexa is a favourite with ELLE readers for her iconic and effortless sense of style," Jenny Dickinson, the magazine's acting editor, said. "She is a role moel for this generation of ELLE women and we are thrilled that she will be our host again this year."
After the launch of their highly successful vintage store Lucy in Disguise, Lily Allen and sister Sarah Owen recently launched their debut women's line and today, the pair will be on hand to show the collection in Harvey Nichols. The Fash Pack team were invited to attend the event and interview the pair today and they want you to be there too.
The event, hosted by ELLE, will see the design pair in conversation with Jenny Dickson, Elle's Acting Editor and Natalie Wansbrough-Jones, the magazine's Senior Fashion Editor.
Come down to Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge tonight at 6:30pm so see the full collection. Simply purchase your tickets here, which will also enable you to have a cocktail, canapes and a good bag too!
