People Magazine's Style Editor on Stereotyping in Women's Media and How to Get Featured

Journalist Insight with Emily Kirkpatrick

Keep Scrolling You Twat

What publications/outlets do you work for now? Where have you worked or contributed to in the past?

I currently work at People magazine as the Associate Style News Editor and I occasionally do freelance for i-D, Paper, and Vice.

Which of your previous works are you most proud of and why?

There are two works that immediately come to mind. One is an interview I did with Vivienne Westwood for The Wild magazine...The second is a longform piece I wrote for People called “Are the Kardashian-Jenners the Greatest Accidental Feminists of Our Generation?”

Before you were at People, you wrote about emerging designers/brands. What specific aspects did you look for in the brands you covered?

Honestly, a compelling lookbook will get you a long way. At The Wild where I worked on that, our readers were primarily visually driven, so any weird or unusual imagery was typically the best way to get me to write about a designer.

What are you currently interested in covering?

"...I’m interested in finding out how women’s media can better serve women....women’s magazines are catering to what, in my opinion, is more of a stereotype of our gender than the reality."
