Why is Glamour considering Lena Dunham for editor in chief!?
This must be a Hail Mary
Condé Nast may have officially fallen off the deep end because according to reports by WWD, they're considering the one, the ONLY, Lena Dunham for editor-in-chief of Glamour.
Following departures of Vanity Fair’s Graydon Carter and Glamour’s Cindi Leive we knew something was in the air, but it's unclear if celebrity management is the answer.
This whole celebrity in power thing has gone a bit too far. I'll allow models to sing, and actresses to give politics a go, but the second we allowed a reality television start to become president is apparently the moment all the lines blurred and we completely lost our collective minds.
Condé Nast have “declined to comment on speculation,” and Dunham’s rep is not returning requests for comment, but reports say she's one of a handful of names being considered — made even wilder by the fact she's appeared at several Glamour events recently.
According to reports, other names being considered include Refinery29 editor in chief Christene Barberich, Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine, the Cut’s Stella Bugbee, Architectural Digest’s Amy Astley, Teen Vogue’s Elaine Welteroth and Instagram’s Eva Chen.
But if they're considering Lena as seriously as we've been led to believe, this could mean a whole new beginning for Glamour — good or bad. (Probably bad.)
