On Monday evening, Calvin Klein and Macy's hosted an event for Christy Turlington Burns's non-profit organization, Every Mother Counts (EMC), which works to make childbirth safer for mothers and hopes to end preventable childbirth-related deaths around the world. The event featured a discussion between Burns and Glamour's Cindi Leive about EMC's growth, motherhood, and running the New York marathon. I was struck by how well-spoken, motivated and smart Burns came across, but also--I have to say it--by how ridiculously amazing she looked.

The September issues are generally regarded as the most important issue of the year for fashion magazines.

With 5.5 million monthly uniques and five million followers on social media, Glamour.com is the largest web property out of Conde Nast's women's magazines. But Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive, along with Digital Managing Director Mike Hofman are looking to grow even bigger. "These are numbers we've achieved with our old site, which is fine, but certainly not the kind of site that was going to take us out of the magazine companion site category and really make us a player," Leive told us.
