Previously Fashion Director at the title, Curtis has played a key role in the title's creative and commercial success during her 12-year tenure, and commences her role with immediate effect.

Hearst said she has been instrumental in developing fashion content that has made ELLE UK the most syndicated edition across the ELLE global network.

Prior to ELLE, Curtis was Fashion Director and a founding member of Wallpaper*, helping to launch the title and build the brand globally. She then worked as a freelance consultant for many leading fashion brands, before joining ELLE in 2004.

Curtis said: "I have been passionate about ELLE magazine ever since I bought the first issue in 1985 when ELLE first launched in the UK. I am truly honoured to be taking the helm of such an incredible brand at such an exciting time in media. This is my dream job and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to take ELLE to new creative and editorial heights.”

Jacqui Cave, Group Publishing Director of ELLE UK, added: "The calibre of applicants for the role of Editor-in-Chief of ELLE UK was incredibly strong but Anne-Marie was the outstanding candidate. Her intimate knowledge and understanding of the ELLE DNA and the spirit of the ELLE woman enabled her to present a creative vision for the magazine and the ELLE business that was simply outstanding.  I’m incredibly excited to be working with her in her new role as Editor-in-Chief and realising both our creative and commercial ambitions for the ELLE brand.”

James Wildman, CEO of Hearst Magazines UK, said: “What a great way to kick off my first week at Hearst UK by sharing such exciting news. Anne-Marie has that rare quality of being both creative and commercial and I look forward to building the ELLE business with her, Jacqui Cave and the ELLE team.”
