No matter how much we love the Internet, websites and blogs for women, there is still nothing that can compare to the old good off-line magazines.
The magazines you can crawl to bed with on a Saturday morning, not being afraid to spill your black coffee on or get your muffin crumbs on its shiny cover. The magazines you can take to the beach or just have it in your handbag so that you have something to do waiting for your friend in a coffee shop…
So, here they are, the top 10 women’s magazines that every fabulous woman would truly enjoy wherever she is:
Covers fashion, beauty, health, fitness, travel, entertainment and other areas of interest of today’s women.
“Vogue’s photography is exquisite, pure art. The glossy pages, the vibrant, sometimes muted colors, seem to jump off the page. The images make my mind wander and explore… ” - by Star Tulip from Seattle, WA
“If you want to know ANYTHING about upcoming style and fashion, VOGUE is a must have staple!”
- by K. M. Winick-Ford
VOGUE is undoubtedly the leading modern magazine on women’s style. The articles are excellent, photography is a sophisticated feast of a great taste, all of its 700 pages are blossoming with fabulous images of the finest clothes, accessories, cosmetics, and everything else a women can dream of. You will find yourself attending the hottest society parties, visiting studios of the best fashion designers, travelling to the most exotic resorts… Great read for every woman!
2. “O, the OPRAH MAGAZINE”
O, The Oprah Magazine gives confident, smart women the tools they need to explore and reach for their dreams, to express their individual style and to make choices that will lead to a happier and more fulfilling life.
With one of the most trusted women in America serving as the magazine’s inspiration, O serves as a catalyst for transforming women’s lives.
“Inspiring reading. Certainly whenever we are feeling down, it is motivating to know that others in much worse circumstances did great things with their lives. How many women have Oprah’s business acumen and are intelligent enough to stay out for so long? And, No super-model on the planet, or even the most successful actress or singer, can look as good as Oprah on the cover.”
- by Bazhe, Author of Damages, NYC
Oprah’s vibrant personality has become a role model for many women and her O’s magazine is a great success! Full of enthusiastic energy, this excellent publication is a galore of inspirational stories, latest fashions, cooking tips, fab news, and much-much more for every woman’s taste!
**This magazine is for women interested in fashion and beauty, as well as the professional fashion designers and retailers. **
Harper’s BAZAAR, the fashion authority, brings you the latest new looks from the hottest designers. You’ll get 12 beautiful issues a year full of best dressed secrets, must-haves and great finds.
“In a market crowded with magazines which look increasingly the same and seem to recycle the identical set of celebrity photos over and over again (snooze), Bazaar has cast an eye on the illustrious typography and design sense of its own past years. The results are evident on every glossy page, with very little of the guilty aftertaste here that you’ll surely feel after flipping through the advertising book that is any issue of its bloated, mainstream market competitors.”
- by Laurie A.E., MA, USA
BAZAAR is rightfully called the most exquisite of popular fashion magazines. The featured fashions are more cutting edge and less mainstream than what is found in Vogue or Cosmopolitan. If you want to know everything about glamorous clothes and accessories, the hottest celebrities, the top-ranking models, and the latest art of the best designers - this magazine is definitely for you!
BUST is a groundbreaking women’s lifestyle magazine that connects with bright, cutting-edge young women.
Fierce, funny, and proud to be female, its revolutionary editorial mix addresses a variety of women’s interests, including pop culture, crafting, fashion, sex, news and celebrity interviews.
“I have been reading BUST magazine for close to five years now. I have to say that all of the wonderful things that I love about being a woman are talked about in this magazine. And it isn’t just for women, with music and book reviews, the magazine is for almost anyone who has a pulse. The main reason it is for women is that it says everything that our mothers wouldn’t say but taught us that we should feel allowed to say.”
- by Carey from Lansing, MI, USA
This wonderful magazine stays apart from other women’s publications on fashion and entertainment. BUST is very “women positive” - one of my own favourite magazines. You never know what to expect from its sharp and witty articles! In BUST, you can look at the latest trends and fashions, meet new designers, and read hot artsy news without being bombarded by endless commercial ads and articles like “HOW TO MAKE HIM GROAN”.

"Man, this magazine just rocks. It's so much better than most other teen magazines out there. And if you have the impression that it's going to be at all like Cosmopolitan, it isn't. It has the normal things that all teen magazines have - beauty, fashion, and celebrity articles. They also have articles on boys like most teen magazines, however, most are actually helpful and informative."
- by Rebecca E. Ratliff, Salt Lake City, UT
It's definitely the best magazine for young ladies! It is not trashy, but a lot classier than other teens' publications. It has real girls in it who are doing real things, and it is not focused so much on how you look but that you can look great no matter what your body shape. And not too much mainstream stuff but just enough to make it readable. It's a great and helpful friend for every girl!
