Michelle Lee is ending her six-year run as editor-in-chief of Allure Magazine in order to join Netflix’s executive marketing team as global Vice President of Editorial and Publishing. There, according to Variety, ” She will lead and oversee Netflix’s team focused on social media channels, podcasts and other initiatives, including the streamer’s Queue magazine.”
In an Instagram post, Lee reflected fondly on her time at Allure, describing their work as culture-changing. Lee has been credited with pointing Allure towards digital modernity and inclusivity.
Some of ground-breaking moments of Lee’s tenure at Allure include: banning the term “anti-aging” from Allure’s publications to adjust society’s negative view on the aging process, and becoming one of the first major beauty magazines to feature a woman in a hijab on its cover. For her forward-thinking work, Lee was named Adweek’s 2017 Editor of the Year.
Prior to joining Allure, Lee served as editor-in-chief of Nylon and held senior positions at various companies including Hollywood.com, US Weekly, and Glamour.
