Edna Woolman Chase was the Editor of "Vogue" from 1914 to 1952.

Vogue lives by the maxim that you can't be too rich or too thin--or have too many ad pages. But the glossy spreads of broomstick-thin supermodels draped in Prada and Chanel, and the endless pages of ads for the finest clothes, accessories, and makeup the beauty industry has to offer, help make it the leading magazine of women's style. Fashion is the main event, but every issue attends society parties, goes inside the home of a celebrity designer, and travels to an exotic resort or vacation spot.

Vogue magazine is a fashion and style magazine published in several countries under several names. It is widely considered the most influential fashion magazine in the world. Competitors include W, Harper's Bazaar and Elle. Vogue is published by Conde Nast Publications, Inc. The world headquarters Vogue are in New York City.

The current editor-in-chief is Anna Wintour, famous for her perfect bob and her habit of wearing sunglasses inside. A famous past editrix is Diana Vreeland.
