Vogue magazine was founded as a weekly publication by Arthur Turnure in 1892. In 1909, Condé Montrose Nast picked up the magazine, changed it to a bi-weekly publication, and started Vogue overseas: British Vogue began in 1916, then Nast went to Spain, then to Italy, and lastly to France in 1920. The magazine's number of subscriptions surged during the Depression and again during World War II. In the 1960s, with Diana Vreeland as editor-in-chief, the magazine began to appeal to the youth of the sexual revolution by focusing more on contemporary fashion and editorial features openly discussing sexuality. Vogue extended coverage to include East Village boutiques and continued making household names out of models, such as Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, and Lauren Hutton. Vogue became a monthly publication in 1973.
