Haute Living, the magazine we'd never heard of before three weeks ago and yet have come to loathe with every bit of our low-income rage, has hired an editor-in-chief. Well, thank Gawd. The "magazine" will be helmed by Lauren Price, the author of the New York Times' groundbreaking "Navigating Internet Access on a Cruise" and some other stuff in New Yorker and Travel + Leisure. Of course, the handy release we received tells us little to nothing about Price other than that she's been freelancing for the past decade, is a New Yorker and qualified to oversee Haute New York and, most importantly, that she's a "world traveler." Which means she probably comes from just enough money to be pretty and glittery enough for the Haute-sters. That is, if she actually exists — we've no proof that "Lauren Price" is a real person, nevermind a rich one.

Full release, which we're running just for the sake of its complete and utter uselessness, after the jump.

Haute Living Magazine Promotes Lauren Price to Editor-in-Chief

Haute Living magazine and its co-publishers Seth Semilof and Kamal Hotchandani are pleased to announce the appointment of Lauren Price as Editor- in-Chief, effective immediately.

"A born and bred New Yorker with her finger on the pulse of the city, Lauren is a perfect fit to help with the launch of Haute New York," Hotchandani adds. "We have enjoyed working with her over the last year and have always been impressed with her passion for New York's luxury real estate.

In this new position, Lauren will oversee day-to-day editorial operations and supervise contributing writers for both Haute Living Florida and Haute Living New York.

"Our tremendous growth has enabled us to expand considerably," says Semilof. "With Lauren's experience, our editorial content will continue to thrive. She has been with us for over a year, and it was a natural fit to allow her to continue helping us build our brand, particularly with our New York launch."

An accomplished writer, Lauren has enjoyed a successful career over the last decade, contributing on both luxury travel and high-end real estate for prestigious magazine and newspapers such as New York Magazine, the New York Times, the New York Post, Luxury Travel Advisor, Travel + Leisure, Departures the New Yorker and AAA Going Places. A world traveler, Lauren has also called Los Angeles and Paris home.
