Elle Strauss

Eleanor 'Elle' Strauss is a British-born, New York-based fashion editor, stylist and consultant known for creative, upbeat and inspirational styling and editorial spreads.

Prior to becoming the Style Director at Shopbop, Elle held the title of Senior Fashion Editor at Lucky magazine. She began her career over ten years ago as fashion assistant at iconic London cult publication, The Face, before taking on the role of Fashion Editor at Company, the top selling, youth-centric fashion and lifestyle magazine published by Hearst in the United Kingdom.

Upon arriving in New York City in 2007, Elle quickly established herself as a freelance stylist, working with high-profile celebrities , including Heidi Klum and Amanda Seyfried, and major brands such as Anthropologie, Lord & Taylor, Sony, Adidas and PepsiCo, among others.

Elle has worked with top brands Ralph Lauren, LOFT, Henri Bendel and Target, and routinely collaborates with top photographers including Tesh, Patric Shaw, David Oldham, James White, Matt Jones and Tierney Gearon. She also has close relationships with top designers and publicists in New York City, London, Paris and Milan.

Elle’s easygoing attitude and articulate critiques have landed her in front of the camera, as well as off: she’s a sought-after television panelist, having appeared on the judging panels of Bravo's Launch My Line and Make Me a Supermodel.

Elle currently resides in Brooklyn with her husband, photographer James Dimmock, and their baby daughter, Honor.
