In case you you’ve been on a media detox this past week, I’m sure you know of a girl named Kate Middleton getting engaged to a guy named Prince William. Well, William Louis. People magazine’s managing editor Larry Hacket has commented on the whole affair by saying,”…this story involves an incredibly attractive girl who is young and going to be a princess. I sure hope she does well. I mean, all this story is lacking is a dragon“.
This is all well and good for the tabloids, who don’t stage dramatic and expensive photo shoots for their covers and can use whatever Middleton shots they have lying around. However, fashion magazine editors at Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar are in a bit of a spot because, well, how do they get Middleton in their issues? Most power females have a running relationship with the US heavyweights. Kate, however, will probably stick to publications on this side of the pond.
“Im sure [Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief] Glenda Bailey has already placed a call,” said one source. [PopEater’s Rob] Shuter noted that for American editors, this wedding presents a bit of a role reversal. “Editors in America are used to sharing their photos of, say, Jennifer Aniston, with their counterparts in other countries, but now they will need to play especially nice for access to Middleton, who will undoubtedly want to be in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Marie Claire in the U.K.”
