Marie Claire Magazine Writer

Dana Damato is a huge fan and aspiring writer/contributor to Marie Claire Magazine.

Marie Claire is a monthly women’s magazine first published in France but also distributed in other countries with editions specific to them and in their languages. While each country shares its own special voice with its audience, the United States edition focuses on women around the world and several worldwide issues. The magazine also covers health, beauty, and fashion topics.

Jean Prouvost created the first issue in 1937, which was distributed each Wednesday. In 1942, German occupation authorities in France stopped the distribution of most magazines, and Marie Claire was one of them. The magazine was not redistributed until 1954. At this time, it became a monthly publication. In 1976, Prouvost retired and his daughter Évelyne took over the magazine and added L’Oréal Group to the company.

Marie Claire US edition was started by the Hearst Corporation, based in New York City, in 1994. Hearst has branch offices in France, Italy, and several locations in the United States such as Detroit, the West Coast, New England, the Midwest, the Southwest, and the Southeast.

Marie Claire UK is part of IPC Media, based in London. In 2006, it launched its website www.marieclaire.co.uk with segments on daily news, catwalk show, photographs and reports, fashion and beauty, buys of the day, daily horoscopes and competitions.

In Australia, Marie Claire magazine is part of Pacific Magazines, the magazine publishing arm of Australian TV network, the Seven Network. The Marie Claire website provides daily fashion, beauty and lifestyle news to Yahoo!.

The reality series Running In Heels follows three interns working in the NYC office of the magazine.
