Linda Wells Joins Hearst

She is in demand.

Allure founding editor Linda Wells had her 24-year run at Condé Nast end abruptly last November, but she has had no shortage of opportunities since then. According to WWD, Wells is joining Condé rival Hearst to produce a beauty report for several of its brands.

The 12 to 16 page special entry will run in the September subscriber copies of Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire and Town & Country. There are plans for Wells’ work to appear online as well.

Wells’ Hearst role (which has yet to carry an official title) comes just one month after she joined New York’s The Cut as its beauty editor at large.
