Pretty much every major masthead you can think of these days is going to look a lot different this time next year. From beloved editors being ousted after struggling to rake in the ad dollars (Sally Singer at T, for one) to reams of staff leaving for greener ($$) pastures (see Harper’s Bazaar), the industry-wide game of musical chairs has been going on for months now. And with many major positions still left wide open, it shows no signs of stopping any time soon.
After six years in the top spot at Marie Claire, Joanna Coles is moving on to a new role as the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan. Coles will replace outgoing editor Kate White starting September 10, though White will stay on at Hearst Magazines in a consulting role. Anne Fulenwider is moving from Brides to replace Coles at Marie Claire. Whew! Got all of that? Good.
It’s not even August yet, but we’re already getting the details about the upcoming September issues. We’ve gotten the scoop on the cover stars, we’ve revealed a slew of ad campaigns that’ll run in the issues, and now we’ve got ad page counts.
Marie Claire South Africa has come out with guns blazing against its critics in a post on the the magazine’s website regarding the Photoshopped/illustrated Kate Middleton cover.
Funny woman Kristen Wiig is Marie Claire‘s August cover girl. So is her right boob. Hey there.
Blake Lively looks like her normal hot self on the cover of Marie Claire‘s July issue in a Balmain blazer dress (?).
Happy Memorial Day everyone! In honor of the day, we’ve compiled some editorials straight from the front lines of fashion.
We have a big ol’ girl crush on Zooey Deschanel. Not only can she pull off bangs like nobody’s business, she also owned the Golden Globes red carpet in a custom Prada number. This is why it pains us to find out that she was bullied in school.
This was the week Benetton got in trouble for Photoshopping the Pope making out with a dude. Versace for H&M hysteria reached fever pitch, the Jersey Shore kids got involved in a bunch of lawsuits, and Jay-Z was named GQ‘s Man of the Year.
It was either the best or worst timing in the world, depending on how you look at it. Marie Claire snagged Kim Kardashian for their December cover, which went to press just hours after news of her divorce went viral.
There’s no shortage of people, columnists, bloggers and casual observers who have wondered whether or not Kim Kardashian‘s marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries was a sham. And now a line on the December 2011 cover of Marie Claire magazine, which features Kardashian and is due to hit newsstands any day now, has some people thinking that the demise of this marriage has been in the works longer than a few weeks.
Fashion magazines have different interpretation of the latest trends, but one trend almost every big glossy is following these days is decreasing newsstand sales.
Elle Fanning totally rules. The girl has enviable red carpet style, but she also has a genuine appreciation for fashion.
First reaction upon hearing that the ladies of Glee would grace the cover of Marie Claire‘s May issue: “Oh, awesome! We hope they don’t airbrush any of them!” First reaction upon seeing the ladies of Glee gracing the cover of Marie Claire‘s May issue: “Oh, no. They did.”
If there’s one thing fashion loves to do, it’s push the envelope. And while some of the stories included on this list made the cut due to a deliberately controversial editorial vision (ahem, Terry Richardson), many more made the list by sheer (and often embarrassingly obtuse) accident. But one thing is for sure, these are the stories that kept tongues wagging, traffic spiking, and many publicists very, very busy.
For fashion magazines, a single September issue can make or break the year. The Audit Board of Circulation’s Rapid Report, which counts the number of single-copy sales of each magazine, lets us know just how well the glossies fared. And you might be surprised at which celebrity gave their magazine a serious newsstand sales boost.
This was the week that Marie Claire got embroiled in some “fattie” controversy, Justin Bieber was the victim of unfortunate Photoshopping and Harry Potter stole from Alexander McQueen. It was also the week we learned Anna Wintour worked for Penthouse and that Target made us very, very happy.
This morning, Rachel Sklar, editor at large of our sister site Mediaite, joined plus-size model and icon Emme on The Today Show to talk about the brouhaha surrounding Maura Kelly’s size-ist “Should Fatties Get A Room?” post for Marie Claire.
In all the controversy over Maura Kelly’s anti-fatties post for Marie Claire, the one side we haven’t heard from is Mike & Molly, the CBS sitcom that inspired Kelly’s post in the first place. Last night, Fancast caught up with creator Mark Roberts who had some choice words for Kelly, as well as the magazine.
On Monday, Marie Claire blogger Maura Kelly published a post titled, “Should ‘Fatties’ Get a Room? (Even on TV?)”. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the piece was incendiary (though we’ve excerpted a few sections after the jump just to get your heart rate going), but what has been most surprising about the controversy is Marie Claire’s response.
