—Joseph “J.” Errico, who has styled the world’s top image-makers, takes on the top role in the U.S. after Grazia was named Best New Magazine Launch of 2021—
Mr. Errico, known professional as J., will oversee Grazia USA’s full suite of product offerings, including its quarterly edition, website, social media platforms, live events, and Grazia Gazette, an eco-friendly and 100-percent carbon-neutral luxury broadsheet publication.
He will be responsible for fulfilling Grazia’s brand promise to serve as a cultural authority that inspires, educates, and celebrates the individuality, beauty, and elevated style of women everywhere.
Mr. Errico previously served as Fashion Director at Marie Claire, Style Director at Andy Warhol’s Interview, and was Fashion Director of NYLON and NYLON Guy’s magazines for nearly ten years.
He also has contributed to magazines such as Vanity Fair, Elle Décor, Numéro, Dazed & Confused, The Cut, and Surface while maintaining a celebrity styling clientele of both Hollywood actors and international pop icons.
In recent years, Mr. Errico has styled the world’s top image-makers and talent, including Nicole Kidman, Gisele Bündchen, Penélope Cruz, Cara Delevingne, Kristen Stewart, Lupita Nyong'o, Zendaya, Charlize Theron, Elle Fanning, and Issa Rae.
“J. is already so respected in the fashion space and his repertoire ticks every box that a publisher wants in a leader,” said Brendan Monaghan, Executive Vice President & Chief Global Brands Officer of PMG.
"We're thrilled to have a talented editor, dynamic creator, and style visionary move into this role. Grazia USA has accomplished a lot in its first year, but we’re really just getting started. He has the intelligence, experience, and talent to bring our brand into a new era.
“In a role where the creator economy drives fashion like never before, his appointment is meant to reflect the importance of having a brand leader that can contribute and shape the conversation in editorial as well as visual platforms. Not just an Editor in Chief and not just a Fashion Director, he will bring a 360-degree perspective to all of our Grazia USA creations.”
Said Mr. Errico: “I am excited to be able to contribute to the rich visual history of iconic imagery that Grazia has created in it’s almost 85 year history and particularly honored to lend a American perspective to such a stylish and quintessentially Italian brand.
“I am also thrilled to join a publisher that has—unlike other brands—invested significantly in the fashion media landscape and the next generation of readers and users. Together, I am certain we will deliver a unique mix of sophistication, wit and glamor.”
