Life Imitates 'Sex and the City': Candice Bergen's Daughter Is New 'Vogue' Editor

More

Chloe Malle, daughter of actress Candice Bergen and film director Louis Malle, will be Vogue magazine's next social editor. New York magazine runs down the 25-year-old's (minimal) experience in lifestyles journalism:

Malle, who was raised in New York City and graduated from Brown, has spent the past few years as a freelance writer, covering residential real estate for the New York Observer and contributing to the Times' style section. She was profiled in Vanity Fair's "Bright Young Things" section last year, where she wholesomely proclaimed her appreciation for Winnie the Pooh, Disney movies, and green vegetables. "You can never have too many: Glue sticks, cheeseburgers, bookshelves, friends," she wrote. She also listed her ambitions: "To publish a novel; to get a master's in public health; to travel the world and write about the people I meet along the way." This is her first staff position at a publication.

The Vogue job may be her first staff position, but fashion magazine editing is in her blood--sort of. Her mother played Enid Frick, Carrie Bradshaw's formidable editor at Vogue, in a few episodes of the Sex and the City television series and in the film version.
