Kate Lanphear has left her role as Style Director of Elle, and although it's unlikely this is the last time we'll hear about her, it has yet to be announced what her next move will be - it's probable that she has another high profile job already set up. Elle confirmed the news with the following statement:
“Kate is an extraordinary talent and we thank her for her many contributions during her six years at ELLE. We wish her the best of luck in her next chapter.”
Taking a look back at her years with the magazine, here is a look at Kate's signature style. Often seen dressed head-to-toe in nothing but monochrome, Kate usually opts for sharp masculine tailoring, band t-shirts, powerful structured shoulders and of course, an array of silver jewels. Almost always wearing a pair of dark angular sunglasses which contrast dramatically with her short peroxide pixie crop, Kate's style is completely original while mixing in hot new season items to make it extra covetable. Take a look back at some of her most memorable looks to date below.
