Five months after Jane closed, its super editor Brandon Holley has announced her next move: She's overseeing lifestyle content for Yahoo, including astrology, food, health, and technology. Mediaweek reports that Brandon hasn't commented on her new position, but the job certainly makes sense for the editor who added a lot of substantial content to the Jane website, and also brought a perspective to ELLEgirl that went beyond clothes and boys - they were the first magazine to put Mischa Barton on their cover, and the only teen magazine to have a dedicated music issue since Sassy. It's no secret that everyone at Fashionista loved Jane and ELLEgirl - we'll be watching the Yahoo pages in hopes that some of the same spirit comes through.
Breaking: Brandon Holley Has Been Named Editor of Lucky
Nice bomb to drop the day before Fashion Week. Former ElleGIRL and Jane editor-in-chief Brandon Holley has been named editor of Lucky. She will succeed Kim France, reports WWD. Most recently, Holley was content director at Yahoo! Shine, the portal's channel for women. Holley is a good fit for Lucky, which houses plenty of former Jane and Sassy staffers, including creative director Andrea Linett. While the copy is minimal and fairly sterile, the market pages and designer profiles are the dream of a certain type of editor. The clothes, products, and accessories--from brands like Mayle and Lyell to Rebecca Minkoff--are things these women would actually wear. And Holley fits into that mold--slightly indie, but not snobby.
