COVER BOY: Reclusive fashion photographer Steven Meisel will make a rare personal appearance at this year’s Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography, where a display of 20 years of his cover shoots for Italian Vogue will be among the main attractions.

Highlights include the 2005 “Hollywood Style” cover spoofing Hollywood starlets and July 2005’s “Makeover Madness” cover starring Linda Evangelista as a celebrity recovering from surgery.

The “Black Issue” last July, for which he photographed only black models including Naomi Campbell, Veronica Webb, Liya Kebede and Alek Wek, rocked the industry.

ForbesWoman magazine will be polybagged with the May 11 issue of Forbes and if the magazine sounds a little familiar, that’s because it’s a new take on ForbesLife Executive Woman, which began publishing approximately 18 months ago. “This is an evolution of that magazine, with a new look and feel and new content,” said publisher Moira Forbes. She added that only two sections from ForbesLife, “My Best Mistake” and “Net Worth,” have been carried over into the new title and upcoming issues will feature more profiles and essays.

“The content is more agenda-setting now,” added vice president and group publisher Meredith Levien. “We have had really good feedback for this concept and now we are upgrading it.” Forbes said new advertisers include Chanel watches, Prudential and Marquis Jet, adding that the new issue will have a mix of advertising from fashion, fine jewelry and watches and finance. She declined to comment on how many ad pages are in the upcoming issue, adding that the issue hasn’t closed yet.
