"Mademoiselle" was known for publishing short storiesby noted authors such as Truman Capote, that were not printed by other magazines. Sylvia Plath's experiences during the summer of 1953 as a guest editor at Mademoiselle provided the basis for her novel, " The Bell Jar". Barbara Kruger, an influential artist was the art directorand image developer, creating works using anchorage, which was used in the magazine.
The November 2001 magazine was the final issue. Some of the 93 employees and features moved over to "Glamour", also published by Condé Nast. Spokeswoman Maurie Perl explained the reason was due to the worsening economic climate for magazines after the 9/11 attacks.
