Set to hit newsstands next week, the NY Times has a preview of Cookie, which was presumably delivered to their office by the conscripted children of Conde Nast employees. As editor Pilar Guzman explains, Cookie is a new type of parenting magazine which emphasizes "the mom and rediscovering the woman within the mom." [That's Conde Nast-speak for "no fat mommies, either."]:
The cover of the premiere issue shows a 33-year-old woman and an 8-year-old boy jumping on the bed in a hotel room. Both are wearing pajamas (hers, $50; his, $110) though she is also keeping cozy with a white cashmere coat ($484).So mom gets replaced by a model? That is so sweet. Women who just gave birth are going to just gobble that up.
(The two are not related in real life, but the editors and focus groups thought they had what Ms. Guzman described as an authentic chemistry.)
