The ELLE LIST, in association with THEOUTNET.COM, which launches today, is a curated list of emerging talent from around the world, including actors, artists, musicians, athletes, activists, photographers, beauty heroes and hell-raisers of every kind.
This list marks ELLE’s commitment to using our platform to shout about a brave and brilliant NEW generation who are pushing the needle and changing the world to make it a better place.
From the founder of the #MeToo movement, Tarana Burke, and her tireless campaigning to shift the conversation around sexual abuse, to young actor and environmental campaigner Sadie Sink, who rocketed to fame after joining the cast of Stranger Things, every person on The ELLE List has enormous talent, dazzling style, and is disrupting the status quo in 2018.
So how did we choose a list that ranges from rapper Stefflon Don to teen-activist and gun lobbyist Emma González?
ELLE asked for expert opinions from a panel of prestigious judges – Director of The Tate Maria Balshaw, Instagram’s Eva Chen, fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu, the team at The Outnet, leader of the Women’s Equality Party Sophie Walker, singer Jessie Ware, supermodel Alek Wek, and our very own editor-in-chief Anne-Marie Curtis – to help select the final 50 honourees of this inaugural ELLE List.
