On November 21st, 1945, the Russian-born and Paris-raised Hélène Lazareff launched a modern women’s magazine that would become a staple in every woman’s home in France. Lazareff’s unique visions were transformed into a concept so strong and relevant to women that it has become a global brand.


From a French magazine to a powerful international media network – with 45 editions worldwide and a global reach of 200 million – ELLE is now the world’s number one female media brand. And its network is still expanding.
