Mirabella was a women's magazine published from 1989 to 2000. It was created by and named for Grace Mirabella, a former Vogue editor in chief.

After changing ownership several times, it became the property of Hachette Filipacchi in 1995. Known as a smart women's magazine, it suffered in comparison to Elle, a more lighthearted issue from the same publisher. Declining ad revenue contributed to a reported $9 million loss in 1999, and the magazine folded immediately after the debut of Oprah Winfrey's magazine O in April 2000.

Mirabella's circulation stood at 558,009 at the time of its demise.
