CAUSE CELEBRE: Glamour editor in chief Cindi Leive has had a full plate over the last few months. In addition to her daily diet of numerous fashion week appearances in New York and abroad, prepping for her magazine’s marquee event “Glamour Women of the Year” in November — and editing the magazine — Leive has been working on a buzzy new project. On Tuesday morning, the editor in chief will host a high-profile panel at The Apollo Theater in Harlem that will include First Lady Michelle Obama, Charlize Theron and former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
The trio will speak with Leive about the issue of global education for adolescent girls, which is a punctuation mark, of sorts, for Glamour’s The Girl Project, which it launched in 2014, a year after it honored humanitarian Malala Yousafzai with a Women of The Year prize.
According to Leive, the event, which is sponsored by Maybelline New York, may become a mainstay for the Condé Nast-owned magazine going forward, and it could expand to Glamour’s international editions.
“We are in discussions right now,” she said regarding an international rollout. “It’s a bit too soon to say more about that.”
Leive said the talk would not be policy-driven, but instead be more conversational about the impact that education has had on lives of the panelists.
