Icons of Style:
After reaching 50 years, Vanidades
has evolved into an iconic figure within the fashion industry. In 2011, Vanidades
will take that influence and use it to honor the top icons of style in the following categories: fashion designer, accessories designer, jewelry designer, hair stylist, and up and coming fashion designer. The Icons of Style 2011 honored these top industry influencers at an exclusive cocktail gala in New York City.
Launched in 1961, Vanidades became the first Spanish language women’s lifestyle magazine in the United States, and the first to accompany the Hispanic woman in her journey of her ever changing role as a woman through the decades. The Vanidades
woman is a classic yet modern one who is defined by her different roles- a professional, a fashionista, an entertainer or a stay-at-home mom. Whatever her role, Vanidades provides a compelling and exciting all in one package covering everything that interests this multi-tasking Hispanic woman. From fashion and beauty, to health and travel, Vanidades presents all the information women need to be successful in an eloquent and relatable matter. A pioneer in the market, Vanidades
has accomplished many noteworthy achievements. It became the first Spanish-language magazine to interview top Latin designers such as Carolina Herrera
, Oscar de la Renta
, and Narciso Rodriguez in the US; the first to cover international fashion shows directly from the runways in Milan, Paris, and New York; and the first to promote significant achievements of Latin women by creating the “Han Triunfado” section.
Having been in the market for 50 years, Vanidades
has garnered legendary status amongst women across the Spanish-speaking Americas. It has become an item so essential that it is passed down from generation to generation, growing and evolving alongside its readers. Sophisticated, elegant and experienced, Vanidades
delicately incorporates everything that the Hispanic woman is looking for.
