Margaret Russell and Michael Boodro

Elle Decor has promoted executive editor Michael Boodro to the post of editor-in-chief, replacing Margaret Russell who is moving to Architectural Digest.

Prior to that, he was launch editor for Culture & Travel, an editor of the Style Section for The New York Times Magazine, chief editor of Garden Design Magazine, and features editor for Vogue.

Boodro has also served in editorial roles at HG Magazine, Harper's Bazaar and GQ.

Love his resume. Wish it was mine!

Can't wait to see how this plays out and how it affects the direction of both magazines. Looks like I'll have to subscribe to AD again!

As I also said in my post I am sure Boodro will do a good job (and finally I could buy again American AD, since I avoided it for long, preferring the Italian and German versions, both so fresh and inspirational).Ciao.

Although it is sad to lose Margaret, its always good to freshen up a magazine. I look forward to what each editor will do. Thanks for the news.
