Joanna Coles from "So Cosmo" stars in the E! reality docu-series. She previously was a mentor to the contestants on the Lifetime reality fashion competition series "Project Runway All Stars."

Joanna Coles is the Chief Content Officer for Hearst Magazines and the former Editor-in-Chief of the world's largest women's media brand, Cosmopolitan Magazine. Under her leadership, the magazine experienced a resurgence. According to MPA's Magazine Media 360 Brand Audience Report, Cosmopolitan's reach increased to 32.1 million in 2015, making it one of the top ten performers of all magazine brands for the year and the only women's media brand in the category.

During her tenure, Coles expanded Cosmopolitan's sphere of influence by featuring substantive coverage of women's issues, health, politics and career, amongst the predominantly relationship-focused pages, to better reflect the lives of contemporary young women. Coles partnered with Facebook COO and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg to launch Cosmo Careers, and later with Snapchat for the launch of its Discover platform, on which Cosmopolitan is a top performer.

In 2014, Coles created a live, annual conference series titled "Fun Fearless Life" and later its spin-off "Fun Fearless Money." Coles also co-developed and serves as executive producer for two television projects: "Issues," a scripted drama with Freeform based on her life as an editor, and "So Cosmo," a docu-series produced by Bunim/Murray Productions for E!

Coles joined Hearst in 2006 as editor-in-chief of Marie Claire, where she transformed the brand, pushing the editorial direction, boosting both circulation and revenue. She orchestrated Marie Claire's partnership with Lifetime's Emmy-winning show "Project Runway," and served as the on-air mentor on the series "Project Runway All-Stars." Additionally, Coles co-created, starred in, and executive produced Style Network's docu-series about Marie Claire, "Running in Heels."

Coles has appeared regularly as an expert on "The Today Show," "CBS Early Show," "The Rachael Ray Show," E!'s "Chelsea Lately" and CNN.

The British-born editor arrived in the U.S. in 1997 as the New York bureau chief for The Guardian, before moving on to become the New York columnist for The Times of London, and a frequent contributor to the BBC. Before moving to New York she worked as a radio and TV broadcaster for the BBC, a weekly op-ed writer and interviewer for The Guardian.

During her tenure at Hearst Magazines, Coles has won numerous prestigious awards for journalism and media leadership. She was recently described by The New York Times as "one of the most powerful people in media."

Coles sits on the board of directors of Snapchat, as well as the board of Women Entrepreneurs New York City, an initiative to expand female entrepreneurship, with a special focus on underserved women and communities. She is currently writing a book with HarperCollins on relationships in the digital age. Coles lives in Manhattan with her husband and two sons.
