The City‘s Erin Kaplan Leaves Elle for Teen Vogue–Is More TV In the Works?

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.

  1. What??!! Teen Vogue seems like a step back.

  2. I agree Lynn. Now if she moved to Vogue I could understand But TEEN Vogue?? Anyway I wish her luck (not like she needs it but...). I have to admit that I never felt as if she was ever comfortable on camera?

  3. Definite step back to go from Elle to Teen Vogue. Strange career move. What's going on within the walls of Elle Magazine?

  4. Elle's about to fold. She got out just in time.
