The Chaning Of Elle Over Time…

27 Feb

Elle is a worldwide magazine of French origin that focuses on women’s fashion, beauty, health, and entertainment. Elle is also the world’s largest fashion magazine with 42 international editions in over 60 different countries.  Elle now reaches out to a staggering 4.8 million readers, in which 40% are single and a vast majority of 82% is aged between 18 and 49, with a median age of 34.7 years. It was founded by Pierre Lazareff and his wife Hélène Gordon in 1945.

In the 1960’s it was considered to ‘not so much reflect fashion, as decree it’ with 800.000 loyal readsers and then a famous slogan: ‘Si elle lit elle lit Elle’ (if she reads, she reads Elle). It is now the world’s largest fashion magazine, with 42 international editions in over 60 countries. In 1981 Daniel Filipacchi and Jean-Luc Lagardère purchased Hachette magazines, which included the then-struggling Elle. Elle was then launched in the U.S. , followed by 25 foreign editions.
