Alexandra Shulman is the editor of British Vogue. Educated at St Paul's School, London, Shulman began her career at Condé Nast in 1982. She initially worked at Tatler under Mark Boxer's editorial leadership, before going on to become features editor of Vogue. After this she edited GQ magazine, before subsequently returning to Vogue as editor in April 1992.
Known as a respected journalist rather than a fashion editor, Shulman has cultivated a magazine with a strong features backbone as well as a dynamic fashion vision. Shulman's editorship has seen Vogue's readership rise to over a million readers thanks to collector's issues such as the gold millennium issue and cover stars ranging from Kate Moss to Victoria Beckham.
In 2005 Shulman was awarded an OBE for services to the magazine industry. Her debut novel, Can We Still Be Friends, was released in April 2012.
Vogue has always been a contemporary record. I hope that during my time at Vogue, people get the same feeling of the times being reflected.
