Andy Warhol period
In the early days, complimentary copies of Interview were often given away to the "in-crowd"; this was the start of the magazine's circulation. Toward the end of his life, as Warhol withdrew from everyday oversight of his magazine, a more conventional editorial style was introduced under editor
Bob Colacello. However, Warhol continued to act as ambassador for the magazine, distributing issues in the street to passersby and creating ad hoc signing events on the streets of
Manhattan, New York City. The creative covers of Interview which gave the magazine its signature style were done by artist
Richard Bernstein from 1972 to 1989.
Brant Publications period
The magazine's format has remained consistent at 60% features and 40% glossy advertising. It has been published by Brant Publications, Inc since shortly after Warhol's death in 1987. It was helmed for 18 years by
Ingrid Sischy, until she and
Peter Brant's ex-wife Sandra became lovers and left the magazine, selling Ms. Brant's half-ownership stake in the parent company Brant Publications.
 For a year and a half the magazine was in flux, edited by
2008 to present
Interview "relaunched" under co-editorial directors
Fabien Baron and
Glenn O'Brien in September 2008, with a cover featuring
