Allure Names Jessica Cruel New Editor in Chief

Condé Nast has appointed Jessica Cruel, the former Fashion Director to the position of Editor in Chief of Allure, succeeding Michelle Lee, who joined Netflix.

Cruel is no stranger to the beauty media brand, having joined Allure in 2019, first as features director and later becoming content director. During her time at the title, she has worked to develop editorial content especially tailored to women of color and we LOVE that!

Cruel will officially take the reins Sept. 8.

"As a long-time beauty editor, working at Allure is a dream. It has always served as an unparalleled source of beauty journalism, as well as my personal moodboard and shopping guide," Cruel said, in a statement. "I am thrilled to shepherd Allure through the next chapter — one focused on making industry-wide impact, spotlighting the many communities that use beauty as a form of self-expression, and celebrating how these practices connect us all."
