Ceo - Iconic Women's Magazine Editor Helen Gurley Brown Dies

Author and groundbreaking magazine editor Helen Gurley Brown has died at the age of 90.
The writer passed away on Monday morning (13Aug12) in New York, days after a brief hospitalisation. Her cause of death had yet to be released as WENN went to press.
Brown is famously credited with turning women's magazine Cosmopolitan into the fashion and lifestyle bible for "fun, fearless females" in the 1960s, and she held the position as editor-in-chief until 1997.
She also wrote the bestselling advice book Sex and the Single Girl in 1962, encouraging women to take control of their love lives and enjoy the pleasure of sex.
Paying tribute to Brown, Frank A. Bennack, Jr., Ceo of Hearst Corporation - the company which publishes Cosmopolitan, writes, "Helen Gurley Brown was an icon. Her formula for honest and straightforward advice about relationships, career and beauty revolutionized the magazine industry.
"She lived every day of her life to the fullest and will always be remembered as the quintessential 'Cosmo girl.' She will be greatly missed."
