The model Bella Hadid got hired as a contributing editor at Teen Vogue, adding another title to her already extraordinary CV. Elaine Welteroth, the Teen Vogue editor-in-chief, announced the new addition to the team yesterday on her Instagram story. Hadid also celebrated her new job on social media.
The “contributing editor” title might sound rather bombastic for what it stands for – a “high-end” freelancer or consultant. However, her influence in the fashion industry will be a precious asset for the magazine. Aside from contributing to articles for the publication, Hadid will be commissioned special project that could benefit from her position.
However, she is not the first model to get a foot in a fashion publication. Fellow supermodel, Cara Delevingne, was named contributing editor at Love magazine in 2015. In October 2017, the Mail Online announced that actress and feminist Lena Dunham was reportedly “in talks to take over as editor-in-chief of Glamour magazine”.
Model or journalist, one thing is sure – with her popularity and distinctive style, Hadid will bring even more success to Teen Vogue.
