Lorraine Candy is the UK editor of ELLE magazine, the biggest fashion magazine in the world with 21 million readers and the only luxury brand publication to have fully integrated digital and print operations. With 44 print editions worldwide, 37 websites, 25 million unique visitors and 370 million pages views per month, ELLE has unparalleled access to world-renowned designers, celebrities, models, photographers, writers, columnists and stylists.
Lorraine recently led ELLE through a complete ‘reboot’ after returning from maternity leave, making the magazine unique in its cutting-edge approach to modern publishing. It is therefore the only luxury magazine brand to have a fully integrated editorial team producing content across all brand platforms – print, digital, mobile and social media.
Lorraine has over a decade of experience as a captain of industry. She joined ELLE in 2004 from Cosmopolitan where she was Editor-in-Chief. In her first 5 years the magazine won 10 awards. Lorraine has worked in journalism all her life, beginning aged 16 when she took her first job at her local newspaper, The Cornish Times. She would go on to be a features writer at the Daily Mirror, columnist for the Daily Mail, The Sun’s women’s editor and features editor at The Times, where she was also appointed deputy editor of the paper’s Saturday Magazine, and oversaw the supplement’s re-launch.
Lorraine was named by the Press Gazette among the top 50 most influential people on Twitter in 2014 – the only glossy magazine editor to be included – and ELLE is by far the most ‘liked’ glossy magazine brand on Facebook.
