Seventeen is an American magazine for teenage girls. It was first published in 1944 and is still in the forefront of newstand popularity among growing competition.
The content of Seventeen includes information and advice about fashion and trends, celebrities, beauty – skincare, hair and make-up – and lifestyles. It also has a health section about nutrition and exercise, a sex and body section, and quizzes and horoscopes. The article length is kept deliberately brief, high quality photographs emphasize regular celebrity and clothing themes and it is well supported by advertising keen to reach the big-spending demographic of young women.
