“Richard Dennen was the stand-out candidate. A Tatler editor must possess an almost impossible set of talents – an intuitive connection with the Tatler world, journalistic flair, wit, an appetite for rich, visual indulgence and an instinctive appreciation of fashion and luxury. With his remorseless energy and ambition, Richard possesses all these elements and more,” commented Read.
Dennen joins Tatler from the Mail on Sunday where he currently holds the position of Features Writer-at-Large. Prior to this, Dennen was Style Writer for the Sunday Times, and a columnist for the Evening Standard. Dennen is already intimately acquainted with Tatler having previously worked for the magazine for 6 years, rising through the ranks to the position of Editor-at-Large. Dennen has also consulted for the Cliveden Literary Festival and for fashion brand Max Studio.
“I am thrilled to be returning to Tatler, the original social media. Having admired the way it has covered British society over the last three centuries, I can’t wait to continue that success story. The Tatler I edit will access an even wider world, featuring arresting and impossibly glamorous fashion and lifestyle,” added Dennen.
Dennen will take up his new role on the 12th February 2018.
