Almost a year to the day of her defeat in the US presidential election, Hillary Clinton has guest-edited one of the last print editions of Teen Vogue, which is set to hit newsstands December 5.
Today, we're announcing a very special issue of Teen Vogue, guest-edited by @HillaryClinton — the first-ever female Presidential candidate nominated by a major party, a woman who sits at the center of a historic paradigm shift. pic.twitter.com/uC1f5asL4w— Teen Vogue (@TeenVogue) November 8, 2017
The issue is "a celebration of resistance and resilience," that will feature personal contributions from the former Secretary of State, including an essay addressed to her teenage self. "Believe in yourself — you're going to do great," the twice-failed candidate tells herself, according to an excerpt released by the magazine.
The news attracted praise from Clinton's supporters, but many were quick to lampoon the move, suggesting she was attempting to appear trendy, among other things.
Crooked Hillary how much did you pay Teen Vogue to weasel your way into the magazine?— ALR (@ALR22971281) November 9, 2017

No wonder why you’re discounting Teen Vogue. She’s also the First Lady who called sex assault victims “bimbos.” pic.twitter.com/US6xBENF9z— Megan Barth (@ReaganBabe) November 8, 2017

'What Happened' Hillary?
"I know the last year hasn't been easy for any of us. The letters I received after the election helped me pick myself up and keep going, and I'm looking forward to sharing a few with you," she wrote.
Clinton will be one of the last people to serve as the magazine's guest editor, as Teen Vogue's owner Conde Nast has announced it will end its print edition, cutting nearly 80 jobs in the process.
