Elle Girl was the largest older-teen fashion and beauty magazine brand in the world with 12 editions and supplements worldwide. Launched in August 2001, it was the younger sibling to Elle Magazine, and similarly focused on beauty, health, entertainment and looked at daring fashion - its slogan: "Dare to be different".
International editions are published in South Korea, the Netherlands, Quebec, Taiwan, Japan, Russia, France, Germany and China. Elle Girl USA provided most foreign editions 60% of their content, yet it has not been announced whether all of the foreign editions will also fold. Sarra Manning, author of YA novels Guitar Girl and Let's Get Lost, was on the launch team of Elle Girl UK and edited the magazine for a short period.
