As my regular readers know I stopped reading women’s magazines years ago because they just make women feel bad about themselves. But I still love reading Vanity Fair (the Italian version, I haven’t read foreign ones so I’m not sure if they are just as good). The beauty section is small and just features the usual, boring press releases and the mag has too many ads (although a lot less than mags such as Marie Claire or Vogue) but it has lots of interesting articles to read. They talk about politics and what’s going on in the world in a way that’s easy to understand for everyone and do interesting interviews. I like that they focus more on the album/movie/fashion line a celeb has created/appeared in instead than gossip or stupid questions like “what kind of biscuit would you be?” (If you want to know, I’d be a very bad-tasting one so no one would eat me, ha!). Overall, although a few small sections are quite shallow, this is a clever and interesting magazine. What’s your favourite women’s magazine?
