Eliza is an American fashion magazine founded in 2007[2] by Summer Bellessa,[3] who was a Ford Model at that time. The publication is headquartered in Los Angeles, California,[4] and began with a circulation (based on its print run) of 10,000 in 2007.[4] The publishing schedule is now irregular and the magazine is only available digitally and by print-on-demand via HP MagCloud.[5] The magazine's name is a reference to Audrey Hepburn's performance as Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.[4][6]

Overview[edit]

The magazine describes itself as being "for women who want to be stylish, sexy, and engaged in the world while retaining high standards in dress, entertainment, and lifestyle."[7] Founder Summer Bellessa has been described as a leader in the modesty movement.[1]

Criticism[edit]

Some critics have called Eliza's focus on modest clothes and its editorial stance "prudish and old-fashioned."[8]
