Glamour is a women's magazine published by Condé Nast Publications. Glamour is a very successful magazine. Founded in 1939 in the United States, it was originally called Glamour of Hollywood.
It is now published in numerous countries including the UK, USA, Sweden, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Russia, Greece, Poland, South Africa, Hungary, Romania (the latest addition), The Netherlands, and in a Latin American (Spanish language) edition, and soon to be launched in Australia. In most cases it is a monthly publication.
Glamour launched in the UK in April 2001, where it pioneered the “handbag size” format, with the tagline "fits in your life as well as your handbag".
Each September the magazine holds “National Glamour Week”. Consequently the magazine features extra coupons (e.g. redeemable at fashion or beauty outlets) and competitions.
Since its launch the magazine has been edited by Jo Elvin, with Michelle Pamment serving as acting editor for a spell in 2005.
Kylie was voted Woman of the Year at the 2009 Awards hosted by James Corden.
In June 2009, to celebrate Glamour's 8th birthday in the UK, Glamour.com have made a gallery of every cover since launch.
Each June, the magazine organizes the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards which recognise women in the public eye. This is usually given out in September.
