Ann Shoket was named editor-in-chief of Seventeen magazine in January 2007. Under her helm, the fashion and beauty icon publication for teen girls continues to represent an important rite of passage, helping more than 13 million readers grow up to be confident, self-assured young women. The magazine is the largest teen magazine and number one on newsstands, and its website is the number one teen magazine site. Shoket has grown the brand beyond the pages of the magazine so that teen girls can be a part of the Seventeen universe wherever they are: on the web, in print, on partner sites, social networking platforms, and even on their iPhones with the Seventeen Ultimate Fashion Finder Flipbook app.
