Teen Vogue Named Elaine Welteroth Their New Editor-In-Chief 3Teen Vogue named Elaine Welteroth their new Editor-In-Chief and we cannot be happier for her. At 29 years old, she is the youngest person – and only second black woman – to hold the title in the history of the magazine’s publishing company, Condé Nast which is literally 107 yrs old.

Welteroth has been the Beauty and Health Director of the publication since 2012, and has also worked in editorial positions at Ebony and Glamour.

She has moved up the ranks and is replace Amy Astley who is the founding editor who has moved on herself.  In a recent press release, famed Vogue Editor-in-Chief and Conde Nast Artistic Director, Anna Wintour gave praise to Welteroth and the new team that will now take Teen Vogue to the next level.

“Elaine, Marie and Phil are fearlessly at the forefront, inspiring young trendsetters with their sophisticated take on emerging fashion, beauty and pop culture, and they will lead Teen Vogue to the next phase of its success. This team has thoroughly embraced the endless potential of social media and new platforms, and their understanding of the most effective way to use them to connect with audiences, embodies what it means to be an editor today.”

Congratulations to Elaine Welteroth making history in the media industry!
