Chu will serve as the magazine's executive beauty director, overseeing beauty content both in print and online. She'll work closely with editor in chief Cindi Leive. Chu will be replaced by Erin Flaherty, Marie Claire's current executive beauty editor.
"There is not a more exciting place to be, or a more inspirational editor to work with," said Chu, who starts her new job at the end of the month. "And I can't wait to engage with the Glamour audience!"
The new hire coincides with a round of promotions: Glamour's executive fashion director Anne Christensen is now creative director, fashion; and design director Geraldine Hessler's new title is creative director, design. Suzanne Donaldson, previously the magazine's photo director, is now its executive photo director.
The Glamour team is just one of many glossy magazine staffs that have been rocked by editors coming and going in the last several months. Last October, Glamour's senior beauty editor Elaine Welteroth left the magazine to replace Teen Vogue's outgoing beauty and health director Eva Chen.
