After yesterday’s reportthat President Obama had sat down for an interview with Glamour editor in chief Cindi Leive for the mag’s November issue, the consensus around the fashion blogosphere was pretty much “good for Glamour!” and, well, that’s about it. To the online political media, however, it was another story all together.
Twenty-three-year-old Elizabeth Olsen is well on her way to becoming Hollywood’s next It-girl. The third Olsen sister is the breakout star of Martha Marcy May Marlene, will star in the upcoming Liberal Arts, and looks insanely cool in Glamour‘s September issue, which features a naked Victoria Beckham on the cover.
We’ve already seen Karlie Kloss on the cover of Vogue Japan’s September issue, but now it’s time for the U.S. September covers to start rolling in. And the first is:
Posh Spice Victoria Beckham on the cover of Glamour!
Almost three years after her death, Glamour printed a picture of the late model Daul Kim in its August issue.
Last night Condé Nast editors and execs stepped out of the gilded tower that is 4 Times Square to toast executive publishing director Bill Wackermann and his new book Flip the Script: How to Turn the Tables and Win in Business and Life. We talked to Glamour editor in chief Cindi Leive about her winning philosophies and what we can expect to see from the glossy in the coming months.
Nicole Richie has landed a beauty spread in Glamour‘s June issue, and we happen to think she’s perfect for the job since she’s mastered the art of frizz-free bedhead.
Country superstar Carrie Underwood covers the June issue of Glamour looking artfully disheveled in a coral shirt-dress and gold necklace. Though certainly sunnier, does Underwood’s open-mouth pose remind anyone else of Kristen Stewart‘s signature look?
Girls is taking over.
In case you were wondering, Glamour is serious about this redesign. Yes, the magazine is clearly willing to shake things up, which is why its May cover features a topless Lauren Conrad.
Here’s a bit of lady magazine lore for you: Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Kate White was once featured on the cover of arch-rival Glamour.
The squeaky wheel really does get the grease. After asking its readers for their opinions about what role Photoshop should play in creating the images in magazines, the people at Glamour have decided to take a stand against overzealous retouching in the photos they publish.
Let’s talk about what we like, what we don’t like and what we LOVE about the new and improved Glamour.
One way to pique interest in your magazine is to redesign the whole thing, and that’s exactly what both Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour plan to do in the new year.
If you hadn’t already heard, Kim Kardashian‘s big sister Kourtney is pregnant for a second time with her (well, not husband, but we’ll call him life partner?) life partner Scott Disick. And while we’re happy for them and their adorable son Mason, who’ll be getting a little brother or sister, we’re also a little confused as to why Kourtney didn’t let the people at Glamour know. She and her sisters are on the cover of the January issue.
For the first time in three years, editors and executives at everyone’s favorite luxury magazine publisher Conde Nast felt confident enough in their bottom lines that they all went to the Four Seasons for a holiday party! And they served industry gossip and corporate intrigue right alongside fashion’s favorite food, chicken pot pie.
For it’s annual Women of the Year issue, Glamour magazine picked none other than Jennifer Lopez as the standard bearer of modern women, gave her a cover and will no doubt laud her with a trophy some time in the not-too-distant-future. And when you see the issue on the newsstand (or extract it from your mailbox), you’re gonna get an eyeful of Lopez’s bodacious tatas.
It’s barely even October, and already we know who’s going to be on the cover of the November issue of Glamour magazine. Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on vampire bride Bella Swan, erm, actress Kristen Stewart, who we have to say looks a lot better on this cover than she has on recent ones.
What happens when an actor steps behind the camera to direct short films for a fashion magazine? Readers of Glamour magazine are about to find out. Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana and Eva Longoria have all partnered with the magazine’s Reel Moments program, for which they’ll direct short films telling the real stories of Glamour readers.
Fashion magazines have different interpretation of the latest trends, but one trend almost every big glossy is following these days is decreasing newsstand sales.
