History

Founded by Jean Prouvost (who also launched Paris Soir and Paris Match), Marie Claire was born twice. It was first published as a weekly in October 1937, where it sold 500,000 copies of its first issue and, in 1939, nearly one million copies on the eve of World War II. With Marcelle Auclair at its head, Marie Claire became the first modern women’s fashion magazine. 

Marie Claire was born a second time in October 1954, with the same founder, Jean Prouvost; the same editor, Marcelle Auclair; and the same mission: “to open up the future for women, help them make their own way through changing times...inform them about subjects that are rocking their world, give them a voice to share the challenges they face and those of the changing society they live in."

When Jean Prouvost left Marie Claire’s helm in 1976, Evelyne Prouvost, one of his granddaughters, created Groupe Marie Claire. Evelyne became Chairman of the company, grouping the women-led titles of the Prouvost empire. In 1994, the first American edition of Marie Claire hit newsstands. In 2004, Arnaud de Contades became CEO of Groupe Marie Claire. 

Today, Marie Claire is present in 29 markets around the world, including Europe, the Americas, Asia Pacific, South Africa, and the Middle East, making Marie Claire one of the most widely recognized women’s fashion media brands in the world.
