Expanding the scope of CNN Style, a new section on Beauty has been added next to Art, Design, Fashion, Architecture and Luxury.
CNN Style has launched a new beauty section to offer inclusive and value-driven editorial content on personal image and beauty. It is a modern take on aesthetics and visual identity to ignite conversations about power, politics and culture around the world. It will appear alongside CNN Style’s existing sections: Art, Design, Fashion, Architecture and Luxury.
“In a time when conversations around diversity and inclusivity have never been so prevalent, maintaining the power to control how we tell our story matters. CNN Style is launching this new section as a global platform that will explore how beauty has been defined in the past, shine a light on those who are currently reshaping the conversation, and follow the evolution of beauty into the future,” said Fiona Sinclair Scott, Global Editor of CNN Style.
The online publication will be rolling out a series of distinctive features and think pieces that will be featured in the beauty section over the course of the month. Chinese American photographer Andrew Kung writes on the de-sexualization of Asian American men; activist and artist Alok V. Menon contributes a powerful story about their own experience of beauty as a visibly gender-nonconforming person; and Catherine Opie, one of America’s foremost photographers — whose challenging work often focuses on visual identity and subculture — discusses what she’s learned about beauty through her career.
