Elaine Welteroth      

Former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue; Judge on Bravo's "Project Runway"; Author of "More than Enough"

Elaine Welteroth is an award-winning journalist, author and former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue. Throughout her magazine career, Welteroth broke new ground as the youngest person and the second African-American to hold this title in Condé Nast’s 107-year history.

Under her leadership, Teen Vogue notably increased coverage of news and politics, encouraging readers to become civically engaged, specifically during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. She's now a leading expert, advocate and voice for the next generation of change-makers. She has written for the hit show "Grown-ish" and has appeared on-camera for a range of media outlets including ABC News and Netflix.

In June 2019, her memoir, "More than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say)," was published by Viking.

Welteroth is a San Francisco Bay Area native who currently resides in Brooklyn and is a proud volunteer at the Lower East Girls Club in New York City.
