Ever since Eva Chen left her post at Teen Vogue last summer, we've been keeping an ear to the ground to find out where the super-charismatic and seriously stylish editor was heading next. Turns out, she decided to keep it within the Condé Nast family, as the announcement came today that Chen has been appointed the editor-in-chief of Lucky.
Taking over for Brandon Holley — who began in the same the position in 2010 and will be leaving Condé Nast, according to the press release — Chen has previously worked with Lucky as a fashion assistant at the beginning of her career and will now become the first Asian-American editor-in-chief for all of the Condé Nast publications. Her debut issue will appear in September, and it seems like we're not the only ones excited to see it. "Eva is the quintessential Lucky girl,” Anna Wintour said, continuing to add that “Eva is a woman of tremendous talent and experience...Lucky’s September issue will be her first opportunity to showcase her leadership ability, and I have every confidence she will meet the moment head-on.” So, there you have it, folks. Mystery solved.
