Maxim magazine is going through a better path as they just hired well known fashion editor/stylist/street style star Kate Lanphear as the Editor in chief recently.
Kate‘s current role is the style director at T The New York Times Style Magazine, and previously worked at Elle US also as style director. The move is a major shift by Maxim’s new owner, Sardar Biglari — the multimillionaire who made his fortune with the Steak ‘n Shake restaurant chain — to make the magazine profitable.
The struggling men’s monthly was purchased by Biglari, of Biglari Holdings, this past February but has continued to see a steady decline. In the first half of the year, Maxim had the biggest dip among men’s lifestyle and fashion magazine newsstand sales, falling 33 percent in single-copy newsstand sales to 99,632, according to figures from the Alliance for Audited Media.
Although her first issue won’t be out until the March next year, but Maxim‘s high fashion-infused redesign has already felt with their new cover featuring American top catwalker Angela Lindvall who was shot by James Macari with styling by Michaela Buratti. Aaron Light and Jo Baker were responsible for the hair and make up. (source)
Interview Magazine will pay tribute to photographers in its September issue, which hits newsstands on Thursday.
The magazine tapped six well-known photographers, who chose women whom they felt represented beauty. Steven Klein selected Nicole Kidman, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott picked Naomi Campbell, Patrick Demarchelier chose Keira Knightley, Craig McDean tapped Amber Valletta, Peter Lindbergh selected Léa Seydoux and Mikael Jansson photographed Daria Werbowy.
“It was like doing six cover shoots,” said Interview editor in chief Keith Pollock, who noted that different copies of the September issue would feature one of the six covers. “There were no restrictions. There was a lot of travel. We shot in Sweden, Ibiza, London, Paris, New York. No photographer was in the same place.”
Inside the issue, each muse interviewed the photographer on their vision, except in the case of Alas and Piggott, who were interviewed by Riccardo Tisci.
The 324-page September issue is down slightly in ad pages from September 2013, with 131 ad pages versus the year earlier’s 152 ad pages. But Interview’s October issue is up 40 percent on a year earlier as the title marks its 45th anniversary. (source)
