Meet InStyle's Chic New Editor in Chief

It's the beginning of a new era for InStyle. After Ariel Foxman resigned from his position as Time Inc.'s editorial director last month, the magazine now has a new editor in chief: Laura Brown. Harper's Bazaar fans will definitely recognize her, as she spent 11 years at the glossy, mostly recently serving as executive editor.

"Taking the lead of such an iconic brand is a dream come true," Brown said in a statement. "InStyle is at the forefront of celebrity, beauty, fashion and popular culture—areas I've loved weaving together throughout my career. There are so many exciting opportunities to grow the brand across all platforms. I can't wait to get started.”

In her new role, Brown will report to Jess Cagle, the editorial director for the celebrity, entertainment, and style group. Cagle had some kind words for Brown in a press release: "With her dynamic point of view, collaborative spirit and deep expertise in fashion and celebrity, Laura will be an exciting and transformative force for InStyle," he said. 

In addition to being a talented editor, Brown also happens to have a super-stylish Instagram account. We rounded up her very best snaps to get you acquainted with InStyle's new head honcho.
