    It has been announced that Hillary Clinton is to guest edit Teen Vogue, almost exactly a year to the day she was defeated in the US Presidential election by Donald Trump. The move has attracted ridicule and anger among many.

    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.

    ​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.

    'What Happened' Hillary?

    ​In announcing the move, Clinton, who is continuing to promote her book, What Happened — a narrative of her 2016 campaign, which attributed her loss largely to Russian meddling, and Julian Assange — alluded to the anniversary of her electoral loss.

    "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.
