 ELLE is the definitive modern, high fashion magazine for smart women; we give our readers —median age 32 — the
 information they need to stay on the cutting edge of fashion and beauty trends, of culture, high and low, nourish their souls,
 maintain their bodies and minds in peak form and cultivate their personal style. We neither pander nor preach, but build a
 long standing trust with our readers so they can confidently turn to us, month after month, in matters of both substance and
 style. Every issue of ELLE includes an encounter with the challenging and the unexpected.

We are submitting our April Career issue, September Fall fashion issue, and the October issue celebrating our 25th

Due to the breadth of our coverage, our design team has a monthly challenge to wrestle. Our April issue jumps from our

children in the justice system) to a pure, aspirational fashion photo fantasy on "work" clothes shot by Ellen Von Unwerth.
Every month, they do amazing things with fonts (please note the gorgeous text treatment of our well story heds), photos,
and formats, to tie every page together and create a whole that is sexy, fun, surprising, dense but not overwhelming —just
completely modern, an object to save and visually savor long past the pub date.
