Glenda Bailey to Present with Alessandra Branca at Fashion: Now and Then

Glenda Bailey has been the editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar since 2001. Under her leadership, the magazine has won numerous awards and had enormous newsstand-sales growth. Bazaar has won five Lucie awards, as well as five Ozzie and four Eddie awards from Folio magazine, and it has been named to Adweek’s Hot List and Advertising Age’s Magazine A-List, which both recognize the 10 hottest magazines in the United States. Bazaar’s covers have been named to Time’s and Advertising Age’s best-covers lists and have won five ASME Best Cover awards and two MIN Editorial & Design awards. In 2010, Bailey was inducted into MIN’s Hall of Fame.

Prior to Bazaar, Bailey was the editor in chief of the U.S. edition of Marie Claire for five years and was named Adweek’s Editor of the Year. During her tenure, Marie Claire was named one of Adweek’s top 10 hottest magazines four times and best publication by The Delaney Report. The title was one of Capell’s Circulation Report’s best circulation performers, and it was the first magazine in the U.S. to be given the Amnesty International Media Award for journalism.

Before her move to New York, Bailey launched British Marie Claire. Under her editorship, Marie
became the biggest-selling fashion magazine in the United Kingdom and earned virtually every publishing honor, including three Magazine Editor of the Year awards, five Magazine of the Year awards, and two Amnesty International Media awards.

Born in Derbyshire, England, Bailey was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II in 2008 in recognition of her services to British journalism and fashion in the United States.
