In Style, the magazine that chronicles celebrity lifestyle, fashion, and beauty will celebrate its 10th Anniversary with the June issue which hits newsstands on Friday, May 28, 2004.
To mark the occasion, Golden Globe and Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron graces the cover of the anniversary issue which will include a 32-page portfolio with a retrospective of the best celebrity photos that have been featured in In Style over the last decade.
"The photographs we've chosen for this issue are a true cross-section of the magazine -- fashion, beauty, home, and of course, celebrity," says Charla Lawhon, managing editor of In Style. "The range of stars we've photographed, and the personal nature of the pictures we've shot over the last 10 years, are truly amazing."
When In Style arrived on the scene in 1994, its original point of view and high-voltage design jolted the industry and completely transformed the magazine business. From the start, In Style has taken a uniquely fun and inviting attitude towards style in all its forms, with a visual feast of beauty, lifestyle, celebrity and fashion that bridges the gap between fantasy and reality.
Today, In Style continues to attract a fiercely loyal readership that can enjoy a wide range of media properties including special issues: In Style Makeover, In Style Home and category leader In Style Weddings and its long- running T.V. counterpart In Style Celebrity Weddings on ABC. Plus the recently-published book Secrets of Style; and the ever-popular InStyle.com. Additionally, In Style has six existing international editions in Australia, Brazil, Germany, Greece, Korea and the U.K, and In Style Spain will launch fall 2004.
Since In Style's launch 10 years ago, rate base has more than tripled to 1.7 million. In Style's first issue in June 1994 contained 37 ad pages, compared with June 2004 which contains 250. In 2003 alone, In Style ran more than 3,000 ad pages.
