When Eva Chen confirmed that she was leaving Teen Vogue, the news came a surprise. What with such a strong presence on social media, Chen has become one of the major faces of the magazine over the past few years so her departure came as a surprise. What her next step will be is still unclear but what we do know is that her replacement is about to start at the magazine.
Last week former Glamour senior beauty editor Elaine Welteroth was confirmed as her replacement and will officially begin in her new role on October 15. 'I will be responsible for the direction of the beauty content in the magazine and online,' she explained to Fashionista in an interview. When asked about how she feels to be stepping into Chen's shoes, she couldn't be more complimentary about her predecessor. 'I couldn't be following up a better act,' she said. 'We've definitely spoken about the role - she's been incredibly supportive through and through,' she revealed, and by the sounds of it, she's set to be a fitting replacement.'
Yesterday this image of Selena Gomez on the cover of Teen Vogue's big September issue dropped and while a high res version isn't currently available, from what you can see in the image above it doesn't look too bad.
This is the second strong cover the singer has had recently. For July she covered US ELLE wearing a strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress in what is definitely my favourite cover from her to date. That said, Gomez felt like the wrong match for the magazine considering the average age of their readers so for that reason, her Teen Vogue cover makes a lot more sense.
Their elder sister may be feeling a mighty backlash at the moment but things are going from strength to strength for Kendall and Kylie Jenner. They have reportedly signed a deal with E! on their own reality show and have a jewelry line in the works and now, the Jenner sisters have bagged a big cover.
Over the weekend KrazyFor Kourtney (@PureKourtney) tweeted this image of what appears to be the sisters on the cover of Teen Vogue's March issue. While the pair have appeared in the magazine before, this will be their first cover for the magazine.
What do you think of the cover?
Update: Teen Vogue have just released the official cover and full editorial.
Chloë Moretz has been everywhere this year. Aside from continuing to impress the acting world with her on screen abilities, the 14 year-old has charmed the fashion industry and has been supported by designers and editors alike as well as appearing on the red carpet of every fashion event that matters.
Although we loved her covers for Wonderland, Interview and LOVE, we've all been waiting for her debut cover for Teen Vogue. Moretz epitomising the Teen Vogue girl and if there's any magazine that balances fashion and age appropriateness, it's them so luckily for us, that day has finally come. Moretz appears in on their December/January cover and in an accompanying spread that is definitely one of my favourites from the magazine this year.
There are lots of not-so-glamorous parts of the job, especially when you're starting out. In the beginning, I did my own pickups and returns on my Vespa, and I used my brother's art gallery as a base for shoots—he wanted to kill me! I had never assisted anyone. I just started doing my own shoots and making my own mistakes—big mistakes. But the good thing about making a mistake by yourself is that you never do it again. I didn't know how expensive it was to ship a box from Milan to Paris, and I spent 2,000 euros sending outfits from Yves Saint Laurent. I was in tears on the phone with UPS, like, Oh my god, I could buy a pair of Manolos, a coat, and a Prada dress for that!
I’ve always said that in this industry you have to accept that there is always, always going to be someone ahead of you on the masthead, prettier, better dressed, skinnier, with more money, more respected, invited to more parties and smarter than you. So really you just have to do you and do you the best you can.
Why Vanity Fair chose Justin Bieber to cover their February issue was a mystery - and still is - and now they're feeling the effect of their cover choice.
Despite the fact that he's easily one of the biggest tween musicians in the world at the moment, Bieber fever isn't translated into magazine sales. The singer's cover made records and not in a good way, as WWD reports that it was the magazine's worst selling issue 12 years. The issue sold a whopping 100,000 copies less than usual marking a significant fail for the publication.
Shenae Grimes is the latest in a long string of stars who decide to get an internship in the fashion industry. Kanye West had one at Fendi, Tallulah Willis interned at Harper's Bazaar and 'Ugly Betty' star Mark Indelicato bagged a placement at Carolina Herrera.
The 90210 star has bagged an internship at Teen Vogue - a placement that she bagged through her publicist. "I was sick of L.A., so I wanted to come to New York. I found [editor-in-chief] Amy Astley’s contact through my publicist, and I e-mailed her," she told The Cut. "I'm a little audacious. As expected, her internship doesn't involve the usual coffee runs and endless hours of returns. "I’m shadowing everybody," she explained. What are her actual duties? "No fetching coffee or photocopying, which is what I thought would happen," she said. "My editor is Andrew Bevan, who’s a dear friend of mine, and I attend a lot of pulls with [fashion market editor] Mary Kate Steinmiller. We pull clothes for shoots and stuff like that," she explained. "Oh, and I’m blogging for the website as well."
The past two months have been a good start to the year for Rachel Zoe. Aside from being heavily pregnant with her first child, last month the stylist showcased her first full collection in New York - which has since been picked up by Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Despite the good reviews of the collection, Zoe hit the headlines after Teen Vogue's fashion news director Jane Keltner de Valle drew attention to the uncanny resemblance between one of Zoe's black and white vintage-style dress and a very similar version that she styled in the magazine back in 2007. When asked about the controversy, Zoe was quick to downplay the issue, saying: "I've been subconsciously building this collection in my mind for a long time. There are a million vintage pieces that have inspired me, and every other designer in the world."
"So I get the call the day HG closed, would I go and see Anna, and I said sure, of course . . . and they were like, ‘Today, right now.’ And that’s how I learned how Vogue operates — I was like, ‘Can I do it tomorrow? I have to get my outfit together!’ And HR was like, ‘No, she’s ready for you now, right now.’ So I toddled up there in my little Agnes B. T-shirt and my brand new Chanel ballet slippers that cost, like, a week’s salary. I stayed at Vogue for nine years — I did four test issues of Teen Vogue, I edited Index — and I didn’t think Conde Nast was going to launch Teen Vogue, so I got pregnant for the second time, and Anna and Mr. [Si] Newhouse called me in. I was nine days away from giving birth — I was so fat. I had gained, like, forty pounds . . . I was huge! And they said, ‘We’re going to launch Teen Vogue, and we want you to edit it.’ I literally gave birth to my second child Ingrid as the magazine was being launched, so she and it are the same age — eight. I was 35 at the time.
