How to become a magazine editor

Posted in fashion by Kaitlin on November 14, 2009

If you want to be the editor-in-chief of top magazine (like “Teen Vogue”), you only really need three things:

1. The hair = Blond and straight with a blunt bang. Alter the shade and length to show your individuality. See “Teen Vogue” editor Amy Astley below.

2. The background = Ballet. If bleeding feet aren’t your thing, any activity that emphasizes line, proportion and style will suffice. According to Amy Astley, the ballet world and magazine world share “discipline, training and rigor.”

3. The attitude = Condescending to all except for your superiors. You must flatter your boss at all times. Astley said “Vogue” editor, Anna Wintour, may be a demanding ice queen to some, but  “I care for her and she cares for me.”

Just check out the absolute lack of fear in Astley’s eyes. Obviously she and Wintour are best buds.

      I love Tavi’s blog! (though I do kind of hate that I wasn’t that awesome in middle school)
