At the end of June last year ACP Magazines (since acquired by Bauer Media Group) confirmed that an Australian edition of ELLE Magazine was imminent, but since the initial announcement the publishing house has kept mum – until today. Bauer Media has now revealed that the debut issue will launch in September, with an accompanying stand alone website, ELLE.com.au, set to go live in August.
A question mark still looms over who will helm the magazine, but our sources peg SHOP Til You Drop editor-in-chief, Justine Cullen, as the most likely candidate. Cullen is one of ACP’s long term overachievers, steering SHOP to the position of highest selling fashion magazine in the country, and the transition to ELLE seems a logical one.
We’ll watch this space – and this GIF over and over and over again in the meantime. #FASHAN
