Fashion Jobs Are Not All They're Cracked Up To Be

Young women are lured by "glamorous" careers; Teen Vogue wants to help! Hence The Teen Vogue Handbook, a "how-to guide for students dreaming of jobs as a designer, stylist, photographer or editor." Except designers are going bankrupt. Magazines are folding. » 9/10/09 11:30am 9/10/09 11:30am

To Splurge, Or To Steal? For Teen Vogue, There Is No Question

Pretty much every women's fashion magazine these days seems to have a Splurge vs. Steal feature, in which ensembles featured on the catwalks of Milan and New York are interpreted for the purposes of so-called "real life." But leave it to Teen Vogue to put its own special spin on this idea! See, for the readership of… » 7/02/08 3:30pm 7/02/08 3:30pm

Teen Vogue Gives Summer Olympians A Sliiight Makeover

Although we were so very heartened to see Teen Vogue editor Amy Astley take the evil fashion industry to task for perpetuating unrealistic body ideals on the Today show, we admit we were skeptical!

Teen Vogue Message Boards: "I Gained Alot Of Weight Over The Summer.…

It has long saddened me that I was never granted entrance to VIP threads of RingsWorld, the New York Times of pro-ana message boards, but you know what they say: "information wants to be free," and no one ever said "except for the 'thinspiring' tales and laxative how-tos of a demented subculture of teenage girls who… » 11/15/07 3:00pm 11/15/07 3:00pm

The Hills: Escape From L.A.


On last night's episode, Whitney and Lauren left Cali and headed off to NYC to meet with Teen Vogue EIC Amy Astley.

In September 2000 Amy Astley, then a beauty editor at Vogue, wrote a story about saying "ciao to hanging hair" and cutting a "chic, sleek bob." Know any other editor with a chic, sleek bob, folks?
