Karlie Kloss, founder of Kode with Klossy and 40-time Vogue cover model, and husband Joshua Kushner, managing partner of venture capital firm Thrive Global, are joining forces to revive Life Magazine about 16 years after its last print issue.

Kloss is CEO of Bedford Media, a new media holding company that will take charge of operations for the new Life Magazine, including revenue and editorial strategy, according to a press announcement released on Thursday.

The magazine will come back to both print and digital forms, with a Bedford Media representative telling the Los Angeles Times that the publication will "most likely" relaunch as a quarterly, scheduled for early 2025.

Bedford Media acquired i-D Magazine in November; that publication is slated to start publishing print issues this fall.

i-D laid off 10 members of its London staff earlier this week.

Life launched in 1883 and gained recognition over the years for its photography, including Alfred Eisenstaed's photo of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square.

Life has shut down and reopened multiple times since its founding, with its last print issue published in 2008.
