Mirabella began her publishing career working with Diana Vreeland at Vogue in the 1960s before succeeding editor-in-chief and taking the helm of Fashion glossy from 1971 to 1988. After leaving Vogue (Anna Wintour took on her role and is still in the brand to this day), Mirabella launched her eponymous women’s magazine Mirabella, which remained in circulation until 2000.

Born the daughter of a liquor importer in Maplewood, NJ (her mother emigrated here from Sorrento), Mirabella developed an interest in fashion while working in the summers at local clothing stores. After graduating from Skidmore College, she got jobs at Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue before moving to Vogue. Starting in the credit department, she rose to the head, working, in the words of a former staff member, “just a little bit harder and harder than anyone else,” PEOPLE reported in a 1977 article.

Early life

Marie Grace Mirabella was born on June 10, 1929 in Newark, New Jersey to parents of Italian descent. Mirabella went into fashion after seeing the opportunity for women to advance careerwise.She graduated from Skidmore College in 1950, majoring in economics.

When Vreeland retired as editor in 1971

When Vreeland retired as editor in 1971, Mirabella became the clear choice. “She’s perfect for the ’70s,” her collaborator and her writer Leo Lerman told People in 1977 of her more realistic approach to women’s fashion. “I can’t get a contamination count on her. She’s remarkably pure in this crazy business.”

Under Mirabella’s leadership, Vogue flourished by setting a much more practical tone for the magazine. At the time, with more women entering the workforce and focused on their careers, Mirabella wanted the clothes in Vogue to reflect what they needed to be successful.

“Grace is really a businesswoman,” said her friend Dawn Mello, president of Bergdorf Goodman, according to Vogue. “She is not ethereal. She always has the reader in mind.”

During her time in Vogue, circulation tripled to more than 1.2 million in 1988 from 400,000 in 1971, the NYT reports.

“Grace guided Vogue through a momentous moment in American history: emancipation, sexual freedom, and vital and hard-won rights for women, and she brought that moment to life in the pages of the magazine.” said Wintour, Vogue’s current chief content officer and global editorial director.

Helmut Newton at his most daring and championed

“She eschewed fantasy and escapism in favor of a style that was minimalist chic and spoke clearly and directly of the newly liberated ways we wanted to live,” Wintour continued. Grace showed Helmut Newton at his most daring and championed so many American designers: Ralph [Lauren], Calvin [Klein], Donna [Karan] and Mr. Beene. She always exemplified the best of America in her vision and values, and she changed Vogue in ways that still resonate, and for which we are deeply grateful, today. ”

The New York Times reports that in addition to her stepson Anthony Cahan hers, Mirabella is survived by another stepson, Christopher Cahan, along with seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
