People
(originally called People Weekly) is a weekly magazine of celebrity
and human-interest stories, published by Time Inc. The concept for People
has been attributed to Andrew Heiskell, Time, Inc.’s chief executive officer
at the time and the former publisher of the weekly Life magazine. 

The magazine’s headquarters are in New York, and it maintains editorial
bureaus in Los Angeles and in London. People is perhaps best known for
its yearly special issues naming "World’s Most Beautiful People", "Best &
Worst Dressed", and  "Sexiest Man Alive".
