Anne Slowey, the fashion news director of Elle, has departed the magazine according to a statement from the brand. "After an incredible 18 years as ELLE's witty and knowledgeable fashion news director, Anne Slowey will be transitioning to a new role as a contributing writer for the magazine and Elle.com, while pursuing her interests in short-film and brand marketing," it reads.  

Page Six has a bizarre report on the rumored circumstances of Slowey's departure: According to their source, Slowey hadn't been in the office since the holidays but no one knew why. It does certainly seem odd that someone as high-profile as Slowey could exit a job with little to no fanfare or public announcement. 

Slowey started at Elle in 1998, and is most well-known for appearing in the short-lived reality tv competition "Stylista," where she terrorized would-be fashion editors. She was also at the center of ire delivered in last year's strange, rambling "Elle on Earth" story delivered by one-time Elle writer Jacques Hyzagi. Hyzagi accused Slowey of being, at turns, "loud and tacky," "not very bright," and that working with her "was a mess akin to making a mule piss in a public bathroom." (Whatever that means.)

We'll certainly be keeping an eye on Slowey to see what she does next. Her replacement at Elle has not been announced.
