Love is a bi-annual British style magazine founded in 2009 by stylist and fashion journalist Katie Grand.[2] Since 2012, Lulu Kennedy has been editor-at-large and Alex Fury has been editor of this Condé Nast publication.[3] Suzanne Weinstock of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism described the magazine this way in 2010:[1]

Despite its glossy pages, the magazine has a raw look. Black-and-white photography dominates, and most of the color photography has a muted palette, as if the pictures have aged and faded. Some images are clearly fashion photography; others are more like inventive snapshots. Nudity is plentiful in many styles, from the grittily pornographic to the breathtakingly artistic.

The first cover in 2009 featured American singer-songwriter Beth Ditto, naked. Later covers have featured Madonna, Cher, Kate Moss, Miley Cyrus, Lea T, Justin Bieber, and even (for the tenth issue) Minnie Mouse.[4]

Grand left the magazine in September 2020.[5] She was replaced by Whembley Sewell who announced plans to move the magazine to the United States.[6]
