In addition, she plans “to lean into the culture of fashion and style,” says WWD where the news of the hire first broke.

“So excited to join @samiranasr @leahchernikoff and all the incredibly smart, ambitious, and stylish women at @harpersbazaarus,” Ogunnaike wrote on Instagram. “Leaving my @gq family is bittersweet (especially my brothers @mobolajidawodu and @tietztietz and our fearless leader @willwelch) but eager to start this new adventure and can’t wait for you all to come along for the ride!!!”
