Celebrity Living‘s death was shocking enough. Very reliable sources say that Hachette’s Elle Girl — one of our favorite magazines period — is done, too. One source says staffers were alerted earlier today, and that the June/July issue will be its last.
Shocking, too, because, 2005 was a monster year for ElleGirl in terms ad pages and revenue — taking in over $33 million in advertising revenue on 750 ad pages, increases of 77 percent and 46 percent, respectively. And in 2006, the magazine was outpacing 2005’s numbers through February.
UPDATE: Women’s Wear Daily allows us to remove the question mark. A spokesperson for Hachette says the brand will continue on the Web.
