Marie Claire Australia celebrates 15 years with their September 2010 issue on newsstands 4th August and I’m giving you a preview of what’s inside the bumper issue, on Friday I posted the cover, featuring a glamboyant Kylie Minogue.
As you can see Jennifer Hawkins is helping her mate Jackie Frank and their team celebrate this massive milestone for a magazine.Â I really thought Jennifer Hawkins would have been a covergirl, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they have a couple of covers!
Jen shows us what is involved in shooting a cover in this ‘behind the scenes‘ image, since it’s inception Marie Claire has produced 181 covers and Jen has been on three of them!
When Marie Claire launched in 1995, it challenged our magazine landscape bringing us not only fashion, but keeping us informed, inspired and entertained with their unique mix of powerful and provocative stories balanced with the must know of all things fashion and beauty.
Marie Claire has also been a vocal and strong voice for important women’s issues, raising awareness and empowering women to make a difference.Â But not only have they supported important issues such as paid maternity leave, sun safety and heart health, Marie Claire is equally known for its prestigious Prix de Marie Claire Awards, which celebrate the best of fashion and beauty.
Marie Claire\’s success is also a direct result of the vision and dedication of Editor Jackie Frank, who has steered the magazine since its launch.
Frank says of this important milestone, “Marie Claire is such an exciting brand, and because it is a reflection of the lives of women it is forever evolving. From women\’s issues and campaigns for change through to beautiful fashion, Marie Claire continues to inspire me â€“ and I hope Australian women.”
Marie Claire Magazine has also garnered a total of 37 awards for excellence over the years, including Best Women\’s Fashion Magazine at the 2009 Australian Magazine Awards, and General Excellence Lifestyle 2006, Editor of the Year 2005 and Magazine of the Year 2001 from the Magazine Publishers of Australia.
