It began modestly, but was built by Nast into a big glossy high-society fashion magazine which has been known to bill itself as "the most famous magazine in the world." Fiction was never a significant component in what is basically a platform for luxury advertising, but it has published writers of literary quality. A British edition has appeared since 1916.
