Journalism, Media and Culture alumna Hattie Brett has been appointed as the new editor of Grazia UK.

Brett, who is currently the Telegraph's deputy lifestyle director, replaces Natasha Pearlman, who has stepped down after three years as editor at the magazine.

After graduating from the School's accredited Magazine Journalism degree Brett started her career at Grazia in summer 2006. She was responsible for the launch of Grazia Daily as well as heading up the features team, during which time she interviewed then Prime Minister David Cameron.

She went on to launch women’s lifestyle website The Debrief for Bauer in 2014 before heading to the Telegraph a year later, where she oversees the fashion and luxury teams across all platforms.

Brett, who takes up the editorship of Grazia in June, said: “It will be privilege to be at the helm of a brand that has become the mouthpiece for smart, stylish and influential women.”

School Senior Lecturer and former Magazine Journalism Director Tim Holmes said, "We have watched Hattie's career progression with great pride and look forward to seeing Grazia's future direction under her editorship."

Tim added, "When Hattie was at Cardiff, she and her classmates worked on a magazine about club rugby - it seems to have stood her in good stead!"
