purchased ''Vogue'' in 1909 three years after Turnure's death and gradually grew the publication. He changed it to a women's magazine, and started ''Vogue'' editions overseas in the 1910s. Its price was also raised. The magazine's number of publications and profit increased dramatically under Nast's management. It continued to target an upscale audience and expanded into the coverage of weddings. According to Condé Nast Russia, when the First World War made deliveries in the Old World impossible, printing began in England. The decision to print in England proved successful, causing Nast to release the first issue of French ''Vogue'' in 1920.

and portrayed a woman swimmer holding a beach ball in the air. Laird Borrelli notes that ''Vogue'' led the decline of fashion illustration in the late 1930s, when it began to replace its illustrated covers, by artists such as Dagmar Freuchen, with Fashion photography, photographic images. Nast was responsible for introducing color printing and the "two-page spread". He has been credited with turning ''Vogue'' into a "successful business" and the "women's magazine we recognize today", having substantially increased sales volumes until his death in 1942. In the 1950s, the decade known as the magazine's "powerful years", Jessica Daves became editor-in-chief. As Rebecca C. Tuite has noted, "Daves led a quiet charge for excellence during one of the most challenging, transformative, and rich decades in the magazine's history." Daves believed that "taste is something that can be taught and learned", and she edited ''Vogue'' with the conviction that it should be "a vehicle to educate public taste". While fashion coverage remained a priority, Daves also elevated the written content of American ''Vogue'', particularly championing more robust arts and literature features. The Daves era of ''Vogue'' came to an end in 1962, when Diana Vreeland joined the magazine (first as associate editor, and then, following Daves's departure in December 1962, as editor-in-chief). The pair had diametrically opposed approaches to editing ''Vogue'': Daves famously declared, "I respect fashion ... it is exciting ... but I am annoyed at people who treat it as a joke, who constantly take sledge-hammers to it ... it's a very serious business." On the other hand, Vreeland believed, as she once told art director Alexander Liberman, "it's only entertainment", and conversely led the magazine into a period of youth and vitality, but also "extravagance, and luxury and excess". In the 1960s, with Diana Vreeland as editor-in-chief and personality, the magazine began to appeal to the youth of the sexual revolution by focusing more on contemporary fashion and editorial features that openly discussed sexuality. Toward this end, Vogue extended coverage to include East Village, Manhattan, East Village boutiques such as Limbo (boutique), Limbo on St. Mark's Place, as well as including features of "downtown" personalities such as Andy Warhol's "Superstar" Baby Jane Holzer, Jane Holzer's favorite haunts. ''Vogue'' also continued making household names out of models, a practice that continued with Suzy Parker, Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, Lauren Hutton, Veruschka, Marisa Berenson, Penelope Tree, and others. In 1973, ''Vogue'' became a monthly publication. Under editor-in-chief Grace Mirabella, the magazine underwent extensive editorial and stylistic changes to respond to changes in the lifestyles of its target audience. Mirabella states that she was chosen to change Vogue because "women weren't interested in reading about or buying clothes that served no purpose in their changing lives." She was selected to make the magazine appeal to "the free, working, "liberated" woman of the seventies. She changed the magazine by adding text with interviews, arts coverage, and serious health pieces. When that type of stylistic change fell out of favor in the 1980s, Mirabella was fired.

1988–present: Anna Wintour leadership

In July 1988, after ''Vogue'' had begun to lose ground to three-year-old upstart ''Elle (magazine), Elle'', Anna Wintour was named editor-in-chief. Noted for her trademark bob cut and sunglasses, Wintour sought to revitalize the brand by making it younger and more approachable; she directed the focus towards new and accessible concepts of "fashion" for a wider audience. Wintour's influence allowed the magazine to maintain its high circulation, while staff discovered new trends that a broader audience could conceivably afford. For example, the inaugural cover of the magazine under Wintour's editorship featured a three-quarter-length photograph of Michaela Bercu, an Israeli model, wearing a bejeweled Christian Lacroix jacket and a pair of jeans, a departure from her predecessors' tendency to portray a woman's face alone; according to ''The New York Times'', this gave "greater importance to both her clothing and her body". As fashion editor Grace Coddington wrote in her memoirs, the cover "endorsed a democratic new high/low attitude to dressing, added some youthful but sophisticated raciness, and garnished it with a dash of confident energy and drive that implied getting somewhere fast. It was quintessential Anna." Throughout her reign at ''Vogue'', Wintour accomplished her goals to revitalize the magazine and oversaw production of some of its largest editions. The September 2004 edition measured 832 pages, the highest ever for a monthly magazine. Wintour continues to be American ''Vogue''s editor-in-chief to this day. The contrast of Wintour's vision with that of her predecessors was noted as striking by observers, both critics and defenders. Amanda Fortini, fashion and style contributor for ''Slate (magazine), Slate'', argues that her policy has been beneficial for ''Vogue'', delivering it from what some critics had termed its boring "beige years." Although she has had a strong impact on the magazine, throughout her career, Wintour has been pinned as being cold and difficult to work with. In an article on Biography.com, Wintour admittes that she is "very driven by what [she does]", and has said "I am certainly very competitive. I like people who represent the best at what they do, and if that turns you into a perfectionist then maybe I am."


As of the December 2020 issue, ten men have been featured on the cover of the American edition: * Richard Gere, with Cindy Crawford in November 1992 * George Clooney, with Gisele Bündchen in June 2000 * LeBron James, with Gisele Bündchen in April 2008 * Ryan Lochte, with Hope Solo and Serena Williams in June 2012 * Kanye West, with Kim Kardashian in March 2014 * Ben Stiller, with Penélope Cruz in February 2016 * Ashton Eaton, with Gigi Hadid in August 2016 * Zayn Malik, with Gigi Hadid in August 2017 * Justin Bieber, with Hailey Baldwin in March 2019 * Harry Styles, in December 2020

Healthy body initiative

May 2013 marked the first anniversary of a healthy body initiative that was signed by the magazine's international editors—the initiative represents a commitment from the editors to promote positive body images within the content of ''Vogue'''s numerous editions. ''Vogue Australia'' editor Edwina McCann explained:
In the magazine we're moving away from those very young, very thin girls. A year down the track, we ask ourselves what can ''Vogue'' do about it? And an issue like this [June 2013 issue] is what we can do about it. If I was aware of a girl being ill on a photo shoot I wouldn't allow that shoot to go ahead, or if a girl had an eating disorder I would not shoot her.
The Australian edition's June 2013 issue was entitled ''Vogue Australia'': "The Body Issue" and featured articles on exercise and nutrition, as well as a diverse range of models. New York-based Australian plus-size model Robyn Lawley, previously featured on the cover of ''

'', also appeared in a swimwear shoot for the June issue. Jonathan Newhouse, Condé Nast International chairman, states that "''Vogue'' editors around the world want the magazines to reflect their commitment to the health of the models who appear on the pages and the wellbeing of their readers." Alexandra Shulman, one of the magazine's editor, comments on the initiative by stating "as one of the fashion industry's most powerful voices, ''Vogue'' has a unique opportunity to engage with relevant issues where we feel we can make a difference."

Style and influence

The word ''vogue'' means "style" in French. ''Vogue'' was described by book critic Caroline Weber (author), Caroline Weber in a December 2006 edition of ''The New York Times'' as "the world's most influential fashion magazine": The publication claims to reach 11 million readers in the US and 12.5 million internationally. Furthermore, Anna Wintour was described as one of the most powerful figures in fashion.


Google partnered with ''Vogue'' to feature Google Glass in the September 2013 issue, which featured a 12-page spread. Chris Dale, who manages communications for the Glass team at Google, stated: In the September 2015 issue, technology such as Apple Music, Apple Watch, and Amazon Fashion were all featured within the issues 832 pages.


Wintour's "Fashion Night" initiative was launched in 2009 with the intention of kickstarting the economy following the financial crisis of 2007–2008, by drawing people back into the retail environment and donating proceeds to various charitable causes. The event was co-hosted by ''Vogue'' in 27 cities around the US and 15 countries worldwide, and included online retailers at the beginning of 2011. Debate occurred over the actual profitability of the event in the US, resulting in a potentially permanent hiatus in 2013; however, the event continues in 19 other locations internationally. ''Vogue'' also has the ability to lift the spirits of readers during tough times and revels that "even in bad times, someone is up for a good time." The article states that ''Vogue'' "make[s] money because they elevate the eye and sometimes the spirit, take the reader someplace special." These fantasy tomes feel a boost during economic distress—like liquor and ice cream and movie ticket sales."


In 2006, ''Vogue'' acknowledged salient political and cultural issues by featuring the burqa, as well as articles on prominent Muslim women, their approach to fashion, and the effect of different cultures on fashion and women's lives. ''Vogue'' also sponsored the "Beauty Without Borders" initiative with a US$25,000 donation that was used to establish a cosmetology school for Afghan women. Wintour stated: "Through the school, we could not only help women in Afghanistan to look and feel better but also give them employment." A documentary by Liz Mermin, entitled ''The Beauty Academy of Kabul'', which highlighted the proliferation of Western standards of beauty, criticized the school, suggesting that "the beauty school could not be judged a success if it did not create a demand for American cosmetics." Leading up to the 2012 Presidential election (United States), 2012 US presidential election, Wintour used her industry clout to host several significant fundraising events in support of the Barack Obama presidential campaign, 2012, Obama campaign. The first, in 2010, was a dinner with an estimated US$30,000 entry fee. The "Runway To Win" initiative recruited prominent designers to create pieces to support the campaign. In October 2016, the magazine stated that "''Vogue'' endorses Hillary Clinton for president of the United States". This was the first time that the magazine supported as a single voice a presidential candidate in its 120 years of history.


The Met Gala is an annual event that is hosted by ''Vogue'' to celebrate the opening of the Metropolitan Museum's fashion exhibit. The Met Gala is the most coveted event of the year in the field of fashion and is attended by A-list celebrities, politicians, designers and fashion editors. ''Vogue'' has hosted the themed event since 1971 under editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland. In 2013, ''Vogue'' released a special edition of ''Vogue'' entitled Vogue Special Edition: The Definitive Inside Look at the 2013 Met Gala.


In 2015, ''Vogue'' listed their "15 Roots Reggae Songs You Should Know"; and in an interview with Patricia Chin of VP Records, ''Vogue'' highlighted an abbreviated list of early "reggae royalty" that recorded at Studio 17 in Kingston, Jamaica which included Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, Burning Spear, Toots and the Maytals, The Heptones, and Bunny Wailer. In addition to their coverage of historically significant artists, ''Vogue'' is a source for contemporary music news on artists such as Jay-Z, Eminem, Tom Petty, and Taylor Swift, as well as being an influencer that introduces new artists to the scene such as Suzi Analogue in 2017.


As Wintour came to personify the magazine's image, both she and ''Vogue'' drew critics. Wintour's one-time assistant at the magazine, Lauren Weisberger, wrote a ''roman à clef'' entitled ''The Devil Wears Prada (novel), The Devil Wears Prada''. Published in 2003, the novel became a bestseller and was adapted as a highly successful, Academy Award-nominated The Devil Wears Prada (film), film in 2006. The central character resembled Weisberger, and her boss was a powerful editor-in-chief of a fictionalized version of ''Vogue''. The novel portrays a magazine ruled by "the Antichrist and her coterie of fashionistas, who exist on cigarettes, Diet Dr Pepper, and mixed green salads", according to a review in ''The New York Times''. The editor is described by Weisberger as being "an empty, shallow, bitter woman who has tons and tons of gorgeous clothes and not much else". The success of both the novel and the film brought new attention from a wide global audience to the power and glamour of the magazine, and the industry it continues to lead. In 2007, ''Vogue'' drew criticism from the anti-smoking group "Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids", for carrying tobacco advertisements in the magazine. The group claims that volunteers sent the magazine more than 8,000 protest emails or faxes regarding the ads. The group also claimed that in response, they received scribbled notes faxed back on letters that had been addressed to Wintour stating, "Will you stop? You're killing trees!" In response, a spokesperson for Condé Nast released an official statement: "''Vogue'' does carry tobacco advertising. Beyond that we have no further comment." In April 2008, American ''Vogue'' featured a cover photo by photographer Annie Leibovitz of Gisele Bündchen and the basketball player LeBron James. This was the third time that Vogue featured a male on the cover of the American issue (the other two men were actors George Clooney and Richard Gere), and the first in which the man was black. Some observers criticized the cover as a prejudicial depiction of James because his pose with Bündchen was reminiscent of a poster for the film ''King Kong''. Further criticism arose when the website ''Watching the Watchers'' analyzed the photo alongside the Committee on Public Information, World War I recruitment poster titled ''Destroy This Mad Brute''. James reportedly however liked the cover shoot. In February 2011, just before the Syrian civil war, 2011 Syrian protests unfolded, ''Vogue'' published a controversial piece by Joan Juliet Buck about Asma al-Assad, wife of the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. A number of journalists criticized the article as glossing over the poor Human rights in Syria, human rights record of Bashar al-Assad. According to reports, the Syrian government paid the U.S. lobbying firm Brown Lloyd James US$5,000 per month to arrange for and manage the article. In October 2018, ''Vogue'' published a photoshoot starring Kendall Jenner who had an afro-like style hairstyle which drew criticisms. For the 2020 September issue, Harry Styles was the first man to appear on the cover of Vogue. He was posed wearing a dress which sparked a lot of controversy about gender roles, masculinity, and femininity.



In 2009, the feature-length documentary ''The September Issue'' was released; it was an inside view of the production of the record-breaking September 2007 issue of U.S. ''Vogue'', directed by R. J. Cutler. The film was shot over eight months as Wintour prepared the issue, and included testy exchanges between Wintour and her creative director Grace Coddington. The issue became the largest ever published at the time; over 5 pounds in weight and 840 pages in length, a world record for a monthly magazine Since then, that record has been broken by ''Vogue''s 2012 September issue, which came in at 916 pages. Also in 2012, HBO released a documentary entitle
''In Vogue: The Editor's Eye''
in conjunction with the 120th anniversary of the magazine. Drawing on ''Vogue''s extensive archives, the film featured behind-the-scenes interviews with longtime Vogue editors, including Wintour, Coddington, Tonne Goodman, Babs Simpson, Hamish Bowles, and Phyllis Posnick. Celebrated subjects and designers in the fashion industry, such as Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Linda Evangelista, Vera Wang, and Marc Jacobs, also appear in the film. The editors share personal stories about collaborating with top photographers, such as Leibovitz, and the various day-to-day responsibilities and interactions of a fashion editor at ''Vogue''. The film was directed and produced by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato. In October 2012, ''Vogue'' also released a book titled ''Vogue: The Editor's Eye'' to complement the documentary.

''Vogue'' launched the teaser for its podcast series on September 10, 2015. The magazine announced that star André Leon Talley would host the podcasts, and the inaugural twenty-one minute podcast was released on September 14, 2015, featuring Anna Wintour. Talley commented that he had "been a longtime storyteller at Vogue and it's just another format for telling stories—as at Vogue, we love to tell the story of style, fashion, and what is absolutely a part of the culture at the moment", hence why the magazine has decided to create podcasts.
