CAMPAIGN DIARY: Publish and be glam! Good Housekeeping boss gets makeover

There are several men in the industry whom we think could benefit from a stylish makeover, but Simon Kippin, publishing director of Good Housekeeping magazine, wasn’t one that immediately sprang to mind.

There are several men in the industry whom we think could benefit

from a stylish makeover, but Simon Kippin, publishing director of Good

Housekeeping magazine, wasn’t one that immediately sprang to mind.



It seems, though, that he’s taken it upon himself and volunteered to

appear in this month’s issue of his own magazine in the section called

’Men - A Users Guide.’



Kippin, 46, can be found complaining that he feels he’s too short and

has a long body and short legs. He also feels that he’s stuck in a bit

of a style rut and yearns to look more modern and fashionable.



’We were doing a male makeover and I volunteered,’ Kippin reveals. ’It

was a great day. I think the nicest part of the day was being pampered,

getting your hair cut etc ...’



The magazine really pulled out all the stops and made their man look at

least ten years younger by giving him a new haircut, a stylish

retro-look leather jacket and a pair of loafers.



Both Mr and Mrs Kippin are very happy with the new look.



’I was very pleased with the leather jacket, and the haircut has

lasted,’ he says. ’I always thought you got to keep the clothes

afterwards but unfortunately not. I’m saving up though.’



From looking at his ’before’ shot, we think the main improvement is that

he’s started smiling in photographs.
