In the last few years, we’ve grown accustomed to seeing Edie Campabell‘s ubiquitous face popping up on the cover of LOVE Magazine, but now it appears that the British model is trading in her cover spot for a place on the glossy’s official masthead!
On Thursday, stylist and editor in chief of the biannual magazine, Katie Grand, took to Twitter to announced a series of new hires, including Edie as its new senior contributing editor. “She’s a beautiful writer and I’m thrilled she is coming to write for us,” said Grand of Edie’s appointment. “She’s extremely intelligent and educated and will thus be a brilliant addition.”
The 2013 Model of the Year recipient now joins a growing list of top models making the transition into the literary world, signaling perhaps a trend among those catwalkers not interested in hitting the big screen. Anja Rubik was the first to initiate the trend, when she founded and became editor of 25 magazine in 2012. The following yearCoco Rocha became a contributing editor at PC Magazine, where she launched a reoccurring column discussing the worlds of fashion and technology. And who could forget Kate Moss‘ appointment to contributing fashion editor at Vogue UK, where she saw the release of her first editorial starring supermodel Daria Werbowy this past month. It’s just all the more proof that a model can be both incredibly beautiful, and super smart!
We’ll be looking forward to catching Edie’s literary debut when the new LOVE issue hits the stands. Until then, we’ll kick back with this video of one of Edie’s more famous LOVE magazine moments:
