Joanna Coles Named Editor in Chief of Cosmopolitan (Updated).

Stefano Pilati isn't the only big name in fashion with a new job. Joanna Coles, editor of Marie Claire, will take over for Cosmopolitan editor Kate White on Sept. 10 — right in the middle of New York Fashion Week.

"Cosmopolitan is an iconic brand that resonates with women worldwide," Coles said in a statement. "To be able to take over the flagship edition is both a huge challenge and an incredible opportunity. I relish the chance to put my stamp on Cosmo and make it the young woman's ultimate playbook for confidence, choices and navigating change."

Coles, who has filed stories everywhere from the BBC to New York Magazine, introduced Marie Claire to the world of reality television. In 2008 she produced Running in Heels, a competition show set in the magazine's offices. She also got the brand's name on Project Runway when she hired Nina Garcia as Marie Claire's fashion director the same year.

White had been editor of Cosmopolitan for 14 years. She left to pursue her own writing and speaking engagements.

Update: Coles's office at Marie Claire will now be occupied by Anne Fulenwider, who served as the magazine's executive editor for two years until she became editor in chief of Brides in late 2011. "I have such a strong attachment to the brand and what it delivers to the savvy, stylish women who read it," Fulenwider said about her homecoming. "I look forward to contributing to its continued success on every front — from print to digital to television."

I still left а vinegar relevant replу on yeѕterday's article (failed to see the day division line 'causе
I hadn't ingested adequate caffeine at the time)...the long and brief of it was to rinse your woolens in vinegar that can help the cuticle lie flat for that reason keeping potential itchies at bay, and having a side observe that rosemary or lavender necessary oil helps while using the sour (disagreeable?) vinegar odor. Among baking soda and vinegar, I can get just about anything clean up. I'vе sοme feedbacκ with

Hope it is ρractісal!) I wrote an еxtended remark and it іsn't going to manage to be exhibiting up. I really hope it failed to get lost...
