Today saw the official announcement that after 44 years in print, Cleo magazine is set to close.
The iconic title was known for its Cleo Bachelor of the Year awards and ~sexy~ male centerfolds. It also inspired the 2011 television miniseries "Paper Giants", in which Asher Keddie played founding editor, Ita Buttrose.
Former editor Mia Freedman commented on the closure, sending thoughts to all Cleo staff, past and present.
Lisa Wilkinson, another former editor of the title, shared her sentiments for the magazine, and the role it played in the lives of so many Australian women since its 1972 launch.
Thanks for the memories, Cleo. Australia will never forget you. Or your centerfolds.
