InStyle is a monthly women’s fashion magazine founded in 1994.[3] It was published in the US by Meredith Corporation[4] and by Pacific Magazines in Australia.


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 Kevin Martinez.

After originating in the United States, InStyle has expanded their brand and, as of 2012, distributes internationally to over 16 countries[5] including Australia, the UK, Germany, Brazil, Greece, Poland, South Korea, Spain, Russia, Turkey, South Africa,[6] Romania,[7] and Russia.[5] In May 2017, InStyle China was launched as part of a partnership with an existing weekly magazine[citation needed], which featured Victoria Beckham on its inaugural cover.[8]
