"Seventeen" is an American magazine for teenagers. It was first published in 1944. It is still in the forefront of newsstand popularity among growing competition.

Key personnel

As of January 2007, Ann Shoket is the editor in chief. She was formerly executive editor of CosmoGIRL! since October 2003. She replaced Atoosa Rubenstein, who left in November 2006, after the departure of nine editors in September 2006.

The content of "Seventeen" includes information and advice about fashion and trends, celebrities, beauty – skincare, hair and make-up – and lifestyles. It also has a health section about nutrition and exercise, a sex and body section, and quizzes and horoscopes. The article length is kept deliberately brief, high quality photographs emphasize regular celebrity and clothing themes and it is well supported by advertising keen to reach the big-spending demographic of fourteen- to early-twenty-year-olds. Originally, it was geared towards seventeen-year-olds, but since then has been trying to hit a wider demographic without toning down the content.
