ELLE UK unveils new sections, design refresh, and new contributors

ELLE UK’s September issue, on sale now, is the first to be fully edited by new Editor-in-Chief, Kenya Hunt, who has introduced an exciting and energising evolution for the brand. There’s a design refresh, new sections, and a cohort of new ELLE voices and editorial features. 

Adorning the September cover is Grammy-award winning singer, Lizzo, with the issue centring on the theme of reinvention and inviting readers to reimagine new possibilities for tomorrow, including the way women live, love, work, or dress.

“From the new thought leaders driving global movements to the UK’s emerging creatives reshaping the future of fashion, I’m proud to shine a light on the women and ideas defining our brave new era,” says Kenya Hunt, Editor-in-Chief, ELLE UK. “And I’m honoured to do it with an incredible team. It’s an exciting time for ELLE UK as we invite our readers to join us in making sense of this moment and forging an exciting way forward.”

Following the official appointment of Hunt as Editor-in-Chief earlier this year, a cohort of new contributing editors have also been unveiled in the issue. As part of their remit, they will be contributing features across a range of subject matters, both online and in print. These include:
