‘Lucky’ Girl Eva Chen Just Came Full Circle in Her Career

News |

Someone is having a good week and her name is Eva Chen.

Condé Nast CEO Charles H. Townsend announced Tuesday in a release that Chen is Lucky magazine’s new Editor-in-Chief. Chen is the former beauty editor for Teen Vogue and she is replacing Brandon Holley, who has been Lucky’s Editor-in-Chief for the last three years. Even more interesting is that her new major gig brings her back to the publication where her impressive career in magazines started. One of her first jobs was as an assistant for Lucky.

After leaving Teen Vogue last year, Chen was serving as a consultant for Lucky and she clearly made her mark. Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour said in an official statement, “From the streets of New York City to Shanghai and everywhere in between, Eva is the quintessential Lucky girl. Lucky’s September issue will be her first opportunity to showcase her leadership ability, and I have every confidence she will meet the moment head-on.” Earning the praise of queen of fashion Anna Wintour? Running a magazine will be a piece of cake.

However, Lucky has reportedly been struggling for the last few years. This means her already big job has even more pressure. But Wintour has faith. She said in the statement:

Eva is a woman of tremendous talent and experience. I have worked with her over the last few years, both during her time at Teen Vogue and as she has been consulting with Lucky. Her lengthy experience in our industry gives her a solid foundation in both digital and e-commerce. Lucky’s September issue will be her first opportunity to showcase her leadership ability, and I have every confidence she will meet the moment head-on.

Good luck Eva!
