Radhika Jones is the editor in chief of Vanity Fair.
In her five years as the magazine’s top editor, Jones has repositioned Vanity Fair as a cultural barometer—capturing the zeitgeist while also looking ahead to identify and uplift the most important and influential artists, activists, and intellectuals of our time.
Among the many metrics of success under Jones’ leadership, Vanity Fair has broken its own traffic record multiple times and has experienced consistently strong growth in its subscription business and social media footprint across platforms.
Prior to joining Vanity Fair, Jones held senior editorial roles at The New York Times, Time, and The Paris Review. Jones also served as editor at Artforum & Bookforum, and managing editor at Grand Street. Jones graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. from Harvard and holds a Ph.D. in English and comparative literature from Columbia University. She is vice chair of the board of the global humanitarian organization CARE and a member of the boards of The Paris Review and the American Society of Magazine Editors.
