Editors Talk Booking Celebrities


By Chris O'Shea Comment

magazinesEvery fashion magazine editor wants the biggest, hottest celebrity for their cover, which can make booking the stars quite difficult. These are famous people, after all. Their lives are more important than anyone else’s!

At The Daily Front Row, a few of the editors responsible for lining up the actors, musicians and more, discussed their jobs. Below are some highlights.

Jill Demling, entertainment editor, Vogue, on the biggest misconception about her job:

That my job is easy because I work at Vogue. Cover stars have so much to juggle that this turns into a matter of balancing schedules more than anything else.

Marni Golden, entertainment director, Allure, on biggest booking:

Jay-Z for Best Life. It was not an obvious fit, so I was proud when it came together. He sent me a bottle of champagne as a thank you!

Tracy Shaffer, entertainment director, Marie Claire, on her dream booking:

The holy grail is Emma Stone — she’s incredibly cool, talented, gorgeous, and so approachable.
