Seventeen is an Americanmarker magazine for teenagers. It was first published in 1944 by Walter Annenberg's Triangle Publications. News Corporation bought Triangle in 1988, and sold Seventeen to K-III Communications (later Primedia) in 1991. Primedia sold the magazine to Hearst in 2003. It is still in the forefront of newsstand popularity among growing competition. This magazine is mostly for young girls from the ages of 13-20.


The content of Seventeen includes information and advice about fashion and trends, celebrities, beauty, skincare, hair and makeup, and lifestyles. It embraces many topics inculding body image and university/college advice. It also has a useful health section about nutrition and exercise, 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 targeted towards the big-spending demographic of thirteen to early twenty-year-olds. Originally, it was geared towards seventeen-year-olds, (hence the name), but since then has been trying to hit a wider demographic without watering down the content.
