ANNE’S MARK: This past summer, Cindi Leive asked Anne Christensen, former fashion editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, to meet for a drink at Marea. Christensen was a newly free agent and she came to the meeting full of ideas to raise Glamour’s fashion profile. Priority number one? Hire Bruce Weber. “It made a lot of sense for the magazine,” said Leive. “He likes to tell a story and that’s what we do at Glamour.” Not long after, Christensen came on board and her fashion editing debut appears in the March issue (which includes Weber). With Christensen, there’s more fashion than ever before, with 17 percent more fashion pages in March, and April’s issue will have 26 percent more than the same issue a year ago. Overall ad pages for March are also up 17 percent.
In the latest issue, new columns have been added, layouts redesigned, a Glamour Tumblr is in the works and there’s more street-influenced style than before. “Anne has clear, exciting ideas for the magazine,” said Leive. “She’s going to incorporate something from the archive in every issue. Diane Arbus got her start at Glamour and Andy Warhol did illustrations for us. Not many people know that.”
