Vogue is much more than a fashion magazine, and over the years has come to represent a certain way of life, comprising of features on fashion, art, TV, film theatre, food, travel...
Fashion is, of course, what it does best, and is often referred to as 'the bible' for budding fashionistas. You'll find incisive and authoritative coverage on the shows of the season, helpful tips on achieving the key looks of the season and up-to-the-minute interviews with the designers themselves.
My favourite section, however, is the 'spy' section, containing all the latest news and gossip on 'people & parties'. This section tends to cover the month's most exciting club launches, store openings, fashion shows and film premieres.
The editorial itself is flawless. Simple fashion features are written with flair and intelligence. The writing is informed, yet imaginative.
The styling is, as you would expect, the best that you will find in any women's UK publication, quirky and quintessentially British. The photography is also stunning, yet less 'artsy' then the magazines European counterparts. British Vogue regularly calls on the likes of creative legends such as Mario Testino, David Bailey and Nick Knight to adorn their pages.
Vogue has recently raised the price of their magazine from £3.90 to £4.00. Yes, it's very expensive for a magazine, especially when you consider you can buy a paperback for only a couple of pounds more but, in my opinion, it really is worth it, just perhaps not one to buy every month!
Summary: Perfect for the occasional indulgence...pure fashion escapism
