InStyle is a monthly women's fashion magazine founded in 1994.[2] It is published in the US by Meredith Corporation.[3]


Along with advertising, the magazine offers articles about content such as beauty, fashion, home, entertaining, philanthropy and celebrity lifestyles. The current editor-in-chief is Laura Brown, and the publisher is Laura Frerer-Schmidt.

After originating in the United States, InStyle has expanded their brand and, as of 2012, distributes internationally to over 16 countries including Germany, Brazil, Greece, South Korea, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, Romania,[4] and Russia. In May 2017, InStyle China was launched as part of a partnership with an existing weekly magazine,[] which featured Victoria Beckham on its inaugural cover.[5] In 2018, the UK edition shifted from paper to digital version, and the Polish edition was cancelled after 10 years of publication.[6]

In 2018, InStyle became the first major fashion magazine to ban photography of and advertisements featuring fur.[7]

In mid-July 2020, InStyle Australian edition's publisher Bauer Media Australia and New Zealand, which had been acquired by the Sydney–based Mercury Capital, axed the magazine, citing declining advertising revenue and travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.[8][9]


In 2016, Laura Brown, a former executive editor of Harper's Bazaar, was announced as the new Editor-in-Chief, taking over for Ariel Foxman, who had been managing editor for eight years.[10] Brown's first issue was December 2016.
