Dale has been in her role at the luxury division of Coty for 14 years, looking after a portfolio of licensed fragrance brands such as Calvin Klein, Balenciaga and Chloe.

A Coty spokeswoman was unable to say whether the company planned to replace her, citing regulations preventing it from commenting on employee-related matters amid its planned flotation.

Elle has hired Dale as executive fashion director and tasked her with devising a ‘groundbreaking’ strategy to develop its relationships with luxury fashion clients.

Elle’s group publishing director Meribeth Parker said: ‘Kirsty will bring with her some extraordinary experience. This role will fully make use of her insight in both the editorial and commercial environments.’
