Revamped Condé Nast Traveler Debuts

In the past, anyone could describe a typical Condé Nast Traveler cover. The magazine pretty much always went with a large photograph of some exotic location that you’ll never visit, along with a model enjoying the scenery. That’s why FishbowlNY loves the March issue of Traveler so much — it’s different.

The latest Traveler features a bold, up close shot of Christy Turlington Burns donning sunglasses. The exotic location we’ve all come to expect from the front of Traveler has been reduced to a mere reflection in Turlington Burns’ shades.

The cover of Traveler isn’t the only thing to get an overhaul. Pilar Guzmán, editor-in-chief of the magazine, pointed out that staffers have used the past few months to “poke holes in every section and to question whether what we cover and how we cover it delivers on our twin promises of inspiration and service.”

We haven’t seen the inside of Traveler yet, but we definitely think they nailed the cover.
