The Lucky Gal: Eva Chen Becomes First Asian American EIC at Condé Nast

I’ve always been a huge fan of Eva Chen. I’ve been following her since her start at Teen Vogue and thought of her as a role model – not just career wise, but personally as well (her impeccable style!). However, when she left her post as the Beauty and Health Director at Teen Vogue, many have wondered what her next big stint would be. Since then, she’s done some high-profile consulting and held some contributing editor positions.

Now – she’s been named the new Editor-in-Chief of Lucky. Even cooler – she’s also the first Asian American Editor-in-Chief of Conde Nast Publications. Conde Nast Artistic Director Anna Wintour had some choice words about Eva:

“From the streets of New York City to Shanghai and everywhere in between, Eva is the quintessential Lucky girl,” Wintour said in a Conde-issued statement. “Lucky’s September issue will be her first opportunity to showcase her leadership ability, and I have every confidence she will meet the moment head-on.”

Congrats, Eva! We’re excited to see what you have in store for Lucky!
