Ever since Port magazine deemed that the “New Golden Age” of magazines is at the helm of six men, it raised many questions about the gender gap in the publishing world and whether or not women’s magazines engage serious journalism.
After a slew of departures this spring, the Elle masthead was starting to look pretty bare. Now, EIC Robbie Myers is slowly but surely filling those spots, starting with new hires Carmen Borgonovo and Lori Goldstein.
Oh, the things we do for love — and fashion. The spring collections are running straight through Valentine’s Day, which means editors like Elle Magazine’s Robbie Myers and her right-hand-man Joe Zee are scheduled to be working on what’s supposed to be the most romantic day of the year.
Don’t believe the hype: fashion editors sitting in the front rows at major runway presentations aren’t out to get each other. Elle’s Robbie Myers and Glamour’s Cindi Leive told us last night at the Tommy Hilfiger show that their interactions are generally quite pleasant.
It takes a village to raise a child, and last night some of the fashion tribe assembled at Lincoln Center to celebrate the next generation of design genius at Elle Fashion Next.
When we can’t get the seat we’d like to get at a fashion show, we chalk it up to having only been around for about a year. When Elle magazine creative director Joe Zee can’t get a seat he wants at a show, we get offended.
Last night Elle celebrated Tinseltown’s elite at their Women in Hollywood celebration. Vets like Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn mixed with the younger set, which included Mad Men‘s adorable Kiernan Shipka (who looked like she walked right off the set in her retro frock). The fashionable crowd included Sofia Coppola (classy in black and white), Rachel Zoe (fabulous in fur), Gwyneth Paltrow (punchy in tangerine) and many more.
Did you write a senior thesis in college? If the answer is yes, then there’s a pretty big chance that after working slavishly for hundreds of hours, it faded into the academic ether never to be seen again — let alone published. But for 20 lucky RISD grads, their senior theses were shown at New York Fashion Week.
Last week, someone claiming to be Elle magazine editor-in-chief Robbie Myers tweeted the word “Hi” at Joe Zee, the magazine’s creative director. The problem, though, was that the person behind @TheRobbieMeyers wasn’t actually her.
Today, Vogue Nippon’s Anna Dello Russo confirmed to WWD that she’s planning to debut her own fragrance. While Teen Vogue and Elle editors like Lisa Love and Roberta Myers have already made themselves near-household names by opening their office doors to some rolling cameras, we think they could be a little more proactive. To save them from the brainstorming process, we thought of a few editorial partnerships that are guaranteed to fly off the store shelves.
Today, the New York Times covered Elle magazine’s highly visible success at utilizing the power of television. “People judge everything you do in fashion. Everything,” Robbie Myers, Elle’s editor in chief, told the Times. So to continue where they left off, here are six reasons we think Elle has got it going on — plus one piece of constructive criticism.
Elle editor in chief Robbie Myers joined the Today Show’s Ann Curry this morning to talk about “curvy girls” and whether they’re “making a comeback.” While we applaud the Today Show for addressing these issues — they’ve even dedicated a new segment to it: Today’s Women — Myers, unfortunately, did not make the best case for the cause.
While her personal style may be a tad buttoned up for our tastes, Martha Stewart has decided to get a bit more fashionable and run a series of sartorial segments on her show. Starting today, The Martha Stewart Show will welcome guests such as Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler fame, Andre Leon Talley of Vogue and ANTM, and Robbie Myers, editor in chief of Elle Magazine.
On Wednesday, Condé Nast announced that it would be moving W Magazine out of the Fairchild Fashion Group. According to their press release, a new editor in chief will be named in the process. So, who will be W’s new EIC?
This month marks Elle’s Work and Power issue, and many will wonder why the magazine opted for a just-out-of-her-teens superstar. While Taylor Swift is undeniably popular, would it not have made more sense to put someone a little, well, older on the cover? Maybe someone who could, at the very least, legally have a happy-hour cocktail?
