Here's how the Hottest Editors Competition 2011 is going to go down today: Round 2 (Semi-Finals) voting closes at 11:00 a.m. ET. The votes are tallied and the three victors head into the Finals which kicks off at 12:30 p.m. ET. So, if you haven't already cast your vote for your favorite fashion editor (or fashion media worker) in Round 2, GO HERE and do that right now. The votes are really really really close, but at this precise moment, at time of publication, the frontrunners are: David Thielebeule, Accessories Director at Allure, over Shiona Turini, Accessories Director at Teen Vogue; Kate Lanphear, Senior Style Editor at Elle, over Rajni Jacques, Fashion News Editor at Glamour; and Alexander Liang, Editor-in-Chief at Kenton, over Mary Kate Steinmiller, Market Editor at Teen Vogue. It's not too late to rally! Anything can happen in the next 2.25 hours. [The Mgmt]
