Christine will continue to report to Edwina McCann, who has been promoted to Vogue Australia’s editorial director and publisher.

Her first issue will be March 2023.

‘After more than 10 years editing the magazine, I am thrilled Christine has agreed to expand her role and look forward to seeing the next chapter of Vogue Australia magazine’s rich history unfold,’ McCann told The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday. 

‘We have worked together for more than 13 years and Christine is my natural choice to succeed me in this role.

‘While I will continue as the magazine’s editorial director and publisher, this change will allow me to focus on our expanding and successful Prestige publishing business at News Corp Australia, which also includes Conde Nast titles GQ Australia and Vogue Living.’

Christine, who will continue to be based in Australia, Britain and the U.S., added: ‘I love being in close proximity to the extraordinary photographers and people that we work with on the pages – anywhere in the world.

‘Wherever I go people love Australia and I’m proud to be an Australian abroad. 

‘I’m excited to take on this new role and will work to deliver fresh creativity to the covers of Vogue Australia and across every page of the magazine, championing and nurturing inspiring design and exceptional fashion in Australia and internationally; celebrating interesting people, their achievements and ideas with compassion, intelligence and humour; and naturally exploring gender and always championing diversity and originality.’
