Better Homes & Gardens Unveils Eighth Annual September Stylemaker Issue
Annual Issue Features Influencers Including Ayesha Curry, Barrie Benson, Lauren Goodman and More

DES MOINES, Iowa, Aug. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Better Homes & Gardens (BHG), the leading lifestyle magazine reaching 40 million consumers a month, today released its eighth annual Stylemaker issue, highlighting creative forces and tastemakers who influence the worlds of beauty, food, home design, and entertaining. The issue is available on newsstands today.

The cover features cookbook author and television personality, Ayesha Curry. In the issue, Curry talks about balancing her roles of wife, mom, and businesswoman – all while finding time to put nutritious, high-flavor meals on the table for her family.

Curry joins seven other Stylemakers from all ages and walks of life who shape the way we decorate, cook, garden, organize, dress, and celebrate.

"Stylemaker is our favorite issue of the year because we get to take our readers into the lives of the trendsetters we are fascinated by on social media and see how they cook, garden and decorate in real life," explained Stephen Orr, Editor in Chief of Better Homes & Gardens.

The 2018 BHG Stylemakers include:

  • Ayesha Curry - Author, New York Times best-selling cookbook The Seasoned Life and host and executive producer of ABC's upcoming Family Food Fight
  • David Lebovitz - Cookbook author and former pastry chef
  • Barrie Benson - Charlotte-based interior designer
  • Lauren Goodman - Fashion stylist
  • Paloma Contreras - Award-winning interior decorator, tastemaker, and design blogger
  • Nick Olsen - Designer

To celebrate the issue, Better Homes & Gardens is hosting its annual Stylemaker event in New York City on September 27th. Over 80 top influencers and tastemakers are expected to join for a day of classes, workshops, and panels.  

"Stylemaker is an event that we look forward to every year," said Stephen Bohlinger, VP/Group Publisher of Better Homes & Gardens.
