Chloe Malle, the 25-year-old daughter of Candice Bergen and late French film director Louis Malle, has been tapped as Vogue's new social editor. She will oversee "Flash," the society and style front-of-book section, replacing style director Alexandra Kotur, who decamped for Town & Country last month after fifteen years at Vogue.
Malle, who was raised in New York City and graduated from Brown, has spent the past few years as a freelance writer, covering residential real estate for the New York Observer and contributing to the Times' style section. She was profiled in Vanity Fair's "Bright Young Things" section last year, where she wholesomely proclaimed her appreciation for Winnie the Pooh, Disney movies, and green vegetables. "You can never have too many: Glue sticks, cheeseburgers, bookshelves, friends," she wrote. She also listed her ambitions: "To publish a novel; to get a master’s in public health; to travel the world and write about the people I meet along the way.” This is her first staff position at a publication.
