Cruel said: "As a long-time beauty editor, working at Allure is a dream. It has always served as an unparalleled source of beauty journalism, as well as my personal moodboard and shopping guide. I am thrilled to shepherd Allure through the next chapter—one focused on making industry-wide impact, spotlighting the many communities that use beauty as a form of self-expression, and celebrating how these practices connect us all.”

Anna Wintour, global editorial director, Vogue, and chief content officer, Condé Nast, said: “It is no small feat to follow in Michelle Lee’s footsteps, but I have no doubt that Jessica can do just that. She is a natural leader and a brilliant journalist, and she exudes a positive energy that is felt by all those lucky enough to work with her.”
