Though the magazine’s shuttering has been all but a sure thing for months now, it’s now official: Mashable reports that Lucky magazine stopped publishing content as of Friday, and that the entirety of the editorial staff has been laid off.
Bad news continues for the magazine formerly known as Lucky, now known as The Lucky Group, a website where you can buy things and also read about fashion a bit: they’re being sued for not paying for renovations on their office in the New York neighborhood of Chelsea.
A few months after leaving the sinking ship that is Lucky magazine, Eva Chen has a new gig: she’s now the Head of Fashion Partnerships at Instagram.
After reports leaked this weekend that Lucky and their new Lucky Group would be shut down completely, now it seems like just the magazine will cease printing, but that the digital arm of the brand will continue. Or something.
After a tumultuous few years, Lucky magazine is leaving Condé Nast and teaming up with BeachMint (the ecommerce company responsible for websites like StyleMint and JewelMint), to become "a wholly independent entity" called The Lucky Group.
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).
Years of romcoms and episodes of Sex And The City and Ugly Betty have taught us that a glossy magazine is a fabulous place to work, full of luxe perks and glamour. But publishing has taken a financial hit, and editors are being told to cut back.
Page Six is reporting that Condé Nast is considering shutting down Lucky Magazine. What?
The title of this post should just be one of those infinite emoticon sad faces. Because this is just SO SAD .
Kate Bosworth has a new collection for Topshop. Actually, it's her second collection for Topshop. She's also on the November cover of Lucky magazine. Actually, it's her second time being on the cover of Lucky. However. Can you recall seeing her in any film besides Blue Crush? Which came out more than ten years ago?
At 235 pages, the September issue of Lucky magazine is not as weighty as some other publications (Vogue is 902 pages, and we'll deal with that later), but fashion fiends should be pleased with the upbeat direction new editor-in-chief Eva Chen is taking.
In Ladymag Land, the biggest issues of the year are the September issues. And this year, Vogue, Queen of the Ladymags, had its biggest issue ever. Nine hundred sixteen pages: Absolutely GIGANTIC. But all of the Ladymags celebrated the fall season in a huge way, and we could not let this momentous occasion pass without…
A sneak peek at the October cover of Lucky magazine shows a gorgeous shot of Christina Aguilera in a denim shirt that really brings out her eyes. It's weird, though: The shirt is gaping open in the center, to accomodate Xtina's bust, and yet: there's NO cleavage to be seen!
Hey, if your boyfriend is gone, fill the gaping hole in your life with a purse or some shoes. And by gaping hole, we mean vagina. That's the message we're getting from a couple of the new ads for Lucky.
Last December, Condé Nast sued a fashion blogger for posting unpublished pictures from Vogue, Teen Vogue, and Lucky. The culprit? 22-year-old fashion-obsessed community college student Ross Ulrich, who once said his "heroes" were Bruce Weber, Steven Klein, and Mario Testino.
