Michelle Lee Named Editor-in-Chief of Nylon

Posted on June 19, 2014

Michelle Lee has been named the new editor-in-chief of Nylon and Nylon Guys magazines. The previous editor-in-chief of Nylon, co-founder Marvin Scott Jarrett, left when the magazine was sold to FashionIndie.

Dana Fields, executive vice president and chief revenue officer of Nylon Media, said in the announcement, "I am thrilled to welcome Michelle to Nylon. Her extraordinary multimedia background in fashion, beauty and entertainment, the essential crossroads of today's popular culture and contemporary media, makes her the perfect choice to lead Nylon."

Lee says, "As an obsessive fashion and culture lover - and former Nylon writer - I'm thrilled to be joining the Nylon team. To me, the brand has always stood for the cool merger of style and entertainment, so I'm excited to see the evolution and growth of such an already-amazing brand."

Lee's previous work includes editor roles at Us Weekly, The Daily Front Row, and CosmoGirl. She was also editor-in-chief of Touch Weekly. She has also held positions at Glamour and Mademoiselle and has written for many magazines.

The Observer reports that the husband and wife co-founders of Nylon - Marvin Scott Jarrett and Jaclynn Jarrett - were caught by surprise when the magazine was sold last month by their partner Donald Hellinger.
