After five and a half years as Elle's publicist, including a starring role on MTV's The City, Erin is leaving the magazine for Teen Vogue, she announced in an e-mail to her contacts today. She starts Tuesday and will be replacing Eleanor Banco
as senior director of PR
While it could just be that Kaplan’s really good at her job and put in a good amount of time at Elle and is ready for a change to a different glossy with a different publisher, we’ve got a hunch Kaplan’s strong TV chops might have something to do with it. Teen Vogue‘s Amy Astley mentioned a little while back that the mag was developing a TV show. Kaplan proved herself to be a dynamic and engaging character on the City and she’d be an asset to a similar show.
Plus it only seems fair since City alums Olivia Palermo and Whitney Port both have shows in the works.
