CNN Style Launches on CNN International

By Mark Joyella 

CNN Style, a digital brand that launched in July, will debut on CNN International April 9 with a half-hour monthly show to be hosted by Derek Blasberg.

The move represents CNN’s return to covering fashion and style 15 years after the exit of Elsa Klensch, who reported on style for the network for more than two decades.

“We are taking inspiration from CNN’s rich past in style and reverse engineering the DNA from our hugely successful digital product to bring CNN Style to TV viewers worldwide,” said CNN International senior vice president Ellana Lee in a statement. “This will be a surprising and elegant journey through the concepts and worlds of style.”
