Her Senior Editor: Stephanie Wood

Stephanie started her career at online fashion power house ASOS.com, where she blogged about style/rifled through rails of clothes and called it work. Five years later she joined Stylist magazine as Online Editor, a dream job that she only left to pursue an even bigger dream of travelling and living abroad.

Having somewhat reluctantly returned to the UK, she worked as a freelance writer before joining MSN Her in March 2013. Post-5.30, her passions include planning holidays that she rarely ends up going on, eating fish fingers and playing netball with her team, Cool Runnings (yes, really). Rarely seen in flats. If you need her, she’ll be in Zara.
