Marie Claire Posts Strong May

By Chris O'Shea Comment

Marie Claire had a great May, as it saw a 57 percent ad page jump from last year’s issue. Min reports that Marie Claire’s May 2011 edition posted 133 ad pages; this year it jumped to 190. Its Vice President and Publisher, Nancy Berger Cardone, said May’s issue was only part of an upswing at the title.

Marie Claire’s momentum continues with our third consecutive record-breaking issue,” she told min. “[Enhancing] our ‘Global Beauty’ issue was  Prix d’Excellence de la Beauté — the only international beauty awards.”

Allure — which saw a 42 percent ad page jump from last year — is also enjoying a nice spring. For the rest of the top five ad page gainers, click through.
