Not-So-Strange Bedfellows: Politics And Fashion

Having worked both for a fashion magazine and a United States Senator, I am the only Jezebel to have worked both in politics and in the fashion industry. (The first paycheck I ever got was noted on my bank statement as being a direct deposit from Hillary Rodham Clinton.) When I made the jump to fashion after having… » 2/07/08 5:30pm 2/07/08 5:30pm

Elle Editor Robbie Myers: "The Devil, Yes. I'm The Devil"


Anna Wintour she's not, but is Roberta "Robbie" Myers gunning for more name recognition? Not only is she rumored to be meeting with producers to become the next Nina Garcia, the Elle editor-in-chief (and former boss to our very own Jennifer Gerson) appeared on Larry King Live last night to tout the new issue of her… » 12/11/07 4:00pm 12/11/07 4:00pm

Fashion Mags: Big Girls Gain, Tween Titles Flounder

'Elle' Magazine: Now The Prettiest Girl On The Fashion Mag Block

I am an outrageously partial reader when it comes to Elle. Which, uh, sorta happens when the magazine was your first post-college professional experience. However I will say in all sincerity and honesty: The newly redesigned Elle? Absofuckinglutely gorgeous. Though small changes had been made to the magazine following… » 8/17/07 2:40pm 8/17/07 2:40pm

'Elle' Magazine's Roberta Myers: Creative, Cautious, Constant

Compared to its fashion magazine cousins, Elle is one tough, slightly-feminist chick. One of the few women's titles unafraid of its own (or its readers') intelligence, Elle is overseen by one Roberta 'Robbie' Myers, who, unlike her editrix peers, is not much of a glamourpuss/press whore... mostly because she wants it… » 8/08/07 12:00pm 8/08/07 12:00pm
