    This editorial contextualizes the main themes covered in the articles of this Special Issue ‘Fashioning Girlhood across the Media in the Mid-Twentieth Century’. The themes involve the real and imagined experiences of girlhood, from the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s. The influence of Angela McRobbie on research in girls’ culture runs through many of the articles. McRobbie worked with girls’ magazines and comics to analyse how they might have impacted on girls’ consumption of popular culture. The articles in this issue analyse the significance of cross media promotion in the ways girlhood is experienced and reflected in film, fashion and stardom. The issue contains articles offering new insights about Jackie magazine, representations of the ballet body in girls comics and film, Vogue Italia covers and female Bollywood stars.
