Women’s magazines, like the print business overall, have a notoriously poor history of foregrounding people of color, whether inside their pages, as subjects of their features, or of course, on their covers. Progress creeps along at the most marginal pace. Are the issues through the first half of 2016 any indication…
In addition to landing her first Vogue (::soft whisper:: Turkey) cover, Bella Hadid is also on the June cover of a major American magazine, Elle.
A man (Jacques Hyzagi), deeply angered by the supposed editorial blunders that affected a story (an interview with Rei Kawakubo, the Comme des Garcons designer/artist/genius disdainful of press) he was writing for Elle, has decided to blowtorch the monoliths of the New York media industry, which is to say the outlets…
Elle’s 2016 Women in TV issue features three women of color on the cover, proving that when you actually put diversity onscreen, it ripples nicely into other arenas. Who woulda thought?
Five years ago, I was an editor at Vibe, and I got an assignment to interview Usher. It was my second time profiling him for a cover story, but this setting would be more intimate than the previous one—instead of meeting in a hotel conference room, we’d talk at an outdoor bar at the Sunset Marquis in Hollywood, just…
Taylor Swift, the biggest pop star on the planet, was recently interviewed by Maxim. The piece was short, but allowed a brief moment for its writer to unleash her inner stan and ask if they could be be best friends. Swift responded with a laugh, and the interview went back to business. But what if it hadn’t?
Author and style icon Fran Lebowitz spoke to Elle (in person, because she doesn't like to talk to people on cell phones and no one has a landline anymore) about her fashion sense, what annoys her (basically everything) and exactly how she'd describe Dolly Parton's style. If you didn't love her before, you won't be…
Who knows if wood nymph Shailene Woodley has evolved from eating mud and sunning her vagina, but she's definitely still a nomad. Woodley is profiled in the April issue of Elle magazine, and her homeless status is right there on the cover: "Beauty! Brains! Talent! Shailene has it all. Except for a place to sleep…
It's really hard to say when this all began.
Elle held its annual Women in Television event, a gala for gals, on Tuesday in West Hollywood, in honor of all the great women who make television a better, less dickish place. There were florals, there were cut-outs, and this is Lena Dunham wearing something Lena Dunham would wear. More women we love below.
Elle has begun releasing snippets of their upcoming cover story on Nicole Kidman and among the more interesting* tidbits are Kidman's reflections on marrying husband Keith Urban after only one month of dating.
Elle's first issue of the year 2015 came into our IRL inbox via Pony Express recently and there are some confusing things going on. Not Nicole Kidman, who is gorgeous if facially immutable, and a perfectly timed cover choice, as she is set to star in Jason Bateman's The Family Fang, as well as Paddington.
The Fawcett Society, the women's rights charity responsible for those "This is what a feminist looks like" tees is currently investigating allegations that the shirts were actually made in sweatshop conditions on the island of Mauritius, where workers were paid 62p, about a dollar per hour to make the shirts.
It seems like almost every woman in Hollywood showed up to Elle's 21st Annual Women in Hollywood awards Monday night – and why the hell not! Women in Hollywood, hear yourselves roar.
The thickness of the September fashion magazines has been determined and while things are looking excellent for a number of publications (Elle, Vogue, Harper's Baazar, InStyle), they're looking bleak for a couple others (Lucky, Teen Vogue).
A dress from Christian Dior's fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection keeps popping up, and there are some important things to note about this dress.
This month, Elle, a lifestyle magazine for women (whá-myn), and Esquire, a lifestyle magazine for men (mēhn), are teaming up to offer readers an invaluable look into to the mind of the opposite sex.
The penultimate episode of Lindsay featured all the classic elements of "the Lohan suite"—a little bit of Dina, some familial finger-pointing, 7 am coke jaw, pathological tardiness and lack of professional commitment. It was enough to push an Elle editor—who forgot she was still wearing her mic pack—over the edge.
