Laura Brown is on a mission! The InStyle EIC is adding a new executive features director to her growing team: former Yahoo Style editor Sarah Cristobal. She’ll start on January 17, will report directly to Brown, and will be responsible for spearheading editorial initiative and collaborations, booking and directing fashion and celebrity features, and overseeing lifestyle content.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Sarah to InStyle,” Brown said of the hire in a statement. “We’ve worked together for years – she has a great understanding of the celebrity and fashion worlds, and a unique ability to make things happen.”
Cristobal was part of Yahoo Style up until February 2016, when she began freelancing full-time for titles like Bloomberg Pursuits, WSJ. Magazine, and Harper’s Bazaar. Before Yahoo, she was editor at V magazine, and held positions at Diane Von Furstenberg, AOL StyleList, and Style.com.
