Who Reads Teen Vogue?
Teen Vogue is a fashion magazine for teenagers who are passionate about style, the fashion industry, beauty, health, and entertainment news. Published ten times a year, it represents the best in teen fashion through gorgeous photography, world-class styling, access to the fashion industry's brightest stars, and breaking news about health and family issues, as well as beauty tips. The Teen Vogue reader is a young woman engaged with life through style, education, giving back (as seen in the regular Charity page), and an interest in beauty and health. Its most ardent readers even go so far as buying two copies of the magazine each month -- one for ripping out pages to paste on their walls and in their inspiration boards, and one to read and save forever as part of their "style library."
What You Can Expect in Each Issue:
- Talking Fashion: These image-driven pages are filled with paparazzi and backstage photos of the brightest stars in the Teen Vogue orbit, from model Agyness Deyn and Kate Bosworth to Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers.
- Beauty Blogger: Ever wonder what it'd be like to visit the Chanel headquarters in Paris? Hang out with Valentino at a sprawling villa in Italy? Or take surfing lessons from a thirteen-year-old pro surfer on the coast of California? That's the kind of dish you'll get—plus backstage secrets and hair and makeup how-tos—in this monthly dispatch from the front lines of the beauty industry.
- View: The latest news about the fashion industry, including exclusive stories about the season's must-have accessories, studio visits with fashion designers, “Fashion Crisis” advice, and tons of personal-style stories about “real girls” and Teen Vogue readers.
- PATA (People Are Talking About): The entertainment section talks about our favorite movies, music, gadgets, and actors. Think Ali Lohan dishing on her new reality show, style tips from Pete Wentz, and indie music stars Vampire Weekend carousing around Paris.
- Features: Everything that is published in Teen Vogue is filtered through the lens of fashion and style. Recent cover subjects include "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere, Blake Lively from "Gossip Girl," Ellen Page from "Juno", and Rihanna.
Contributors are culture- and style-obsessed writers and editors who know the scoop on fashion, music and movies way before the rest of the world. They're experts at spotting trends that teens will want to wear every season, and they cover health topics and beauty secrets that matter to our readers.
An intensely visual magazine, Teen Vogue features modern, vibrant fashion stories photographed by some of the best photographers in the world, including Bruce Weber, Patrick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort and David Bailey. They travel across the world and back to locations that imbue our stories with a sense of adventure, sophistication and chic originality. At the same time, it also prides itself on delivering breaking news about health and relationship trends, as well as offering advice about breaking into the fashion industry as a whole.
Comparisons to Other Magazines:
Teen Vogue touches on relationships here and there, sure, but its reason d'etre is style, and to that end, it covers fashion news, travel around the world to photograph the coolest clothes in exotic settings (China, India, the Caribbean... the list goes on!), and deliver the most amazing new music and movies, college reports, and career advice instead of dispensing boy advice, quizzes, and embarrassing stories.
There is a close synergy between the advertisers in Teen Vogue, the actual content of the magazine, and the brands that readers love. It's basically seamless -- and driven by fashion at both the high end as well as more affordable sportswear and action brands. Each issue features an "In This Issue" section, which lists all fashion credits from our major stories, as well as URLs and phone numbers that allow readers to contact the companies. Teen Vogue's advertising is wholly relevant and targeted toward the fashion-forward, culture- and beauty-obsessed teen.
