Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer To Appear In Vogue

In addition to a new baby, a new job that has been paying her roughly $1 million per month with a compensation package that could nearly triple this figure if she remains at the reins of Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO), Marissa Mayer will be able to add another notch to her belt next month when she appears in a photo shoot for Vogue magazine.

Yahoo's Marissa Mayer To Appear In Vogue

Not only a photo shoot, but a photo shoot in the famed September Issue that will come in at 902 pages and cause mail carriers all over the country great anguish.

Whatever your opinions on Marissa Mayer’s stewardship of Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO), she is not a bad looking woman by any means. A touch plain perhaps but this shoot is not showing that side. Rather one shot has her reclining backward on a shapely piece of lawn furniture as she gazes into Mikael Jansson’s camera, and tosses back a tablet device that looks like a white iPad.

Marissa Mayer, “an unusually stylish geek”

“She is an unusually stylish geek,” the article by Jacob Weisberg says. The article will come in at 3,000 words.

While those who used to tele-commute for Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO), a practice Ms. Mayer put a stop to early in her time at Yahoo, may view her as a witch on par with Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour, of The Devil Wears Prada and The September Issue, Mayer looks as though she belongs in this magazine from the few shots we’ve seen.

Marissa Mayer to pose as fashion statement

Mayer’s presence in magazines is nothing new, she has graced the covers of Bloomberg Businessweek, Fortune and other business magazines. This, however, is something different. Or almost—Ms. Mayer did have a single photo taken of her for Vogue magazine while working for Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG). Rather than a tablet she was pictured with a laptop, and she has also appeared in Glamour magazine.

“Mogul, Mother, Lightning Rod,” is the teaser for the September issue cover, an issue that largely decides what is worn by women of means the world over each year.

In addition to the pictorial, the piece will include a slideshow entitled “What Would Marissa Mayer Wear?” While Ms. Mayer’s prescence may boost circulation, she is not quite ready for prime time, or rather, the cover. That distinction will go to Jennifer Lawrence as the Hunger Games sequel nears.
