Senior Style Editor Anya Strzemien Leaves Huffington Post for Jane Pratt’s Website

Jane Pratt‘s new website, the adorably name xoJane.com, might have gotten off to a rocky start review-wise. But it seems Pratt still has enough media cache to pull in some big names. Business Insider reports that Pratt has hired Huffington Post senior style editor Anya Strzemien as the site’s new deputy editor.

Strzemien worked with Huffington Post for four years, where she was hired to launch lifestyle content, according to a Q&A on xoJane. And she’s a big fan of Jane Pratt: she was inspired by Sassy to produce a magazine called Love for two years. Also, if you’re dying to know, her “celebs to make out with” are Ryan Gosling and Mark Ruffalo. Glad to see Pratt tackling the big questions.

Strike a Pose: HuffPo Launches a Style Vertical

We’ve been hearing rumors of this for a week or so, and can now confirm that the Huffington Post has just to added a new style vertical to its website. We are told the Style Section that it will differ from HuffPo’s living section in so far as it will “be about style, sex, and social trends,” but of the more “off beat” variety, and not so much the “how to improve communication with your spouse,” relationship pieces.

We took a quick peek, and while Style senior editor Anya Strzemien tells us it’s still in the final stages of being smoothed out, here’s a sampling of what you’ll see: “How Much Sex is Enough?”; “Street Style And The Internet’s It Girls”; “Tatoos and the Need to Stand Out”; and our personal favorite, “Frizzy Is The New Fabulous.” Plus we think we spotted a Q&A with Hal Rubenstein in there along with an homage to Claudette Colbert.
