Kate Lanphear - Editor in Chief, Maxim
From wikifashion.com

Quote:
Kate Lanphear is the style director of Elle USA and is originally from Virginia but started her career in fashion in Australia. The style editor is known for her strong sense of dress, platinum blonde locks and is often revered as a style icon by those in the industry. Kate has a huge cult following and has inspired numerous blogs that follow her punky style.

Previous to working in the United States, Kate worked for eight years in Sydney at Vogue (Australia) and Harper's Bazaar (Australia). She then returned to the USA where she landed a role at Harper's Bazaar. It wasn't long before she was offered the role of senior fashion editor at Elle and then style director in 2008.

She was raised in a conservative Irish-Catholic family and was surrounded by stylish women. She says her own wardrobe is filled with studs, chains and black skinny jeans. Kate's style is both androgynous and glamourous. Although she thinks of herself as a fashion geek, claiming her style is more "potluck".

Although Kate herself has worked for years in fashion, she likes that there are fresh voices in fashion through blogging and the internet.

As for favorite designers, Kate says that she collects old Helmut Lang and Margiela.
There are rumours that she's up for Nina Garcia's previous position.
