Vogue lives by the maxim that you can't be too rich or too thin--or have too many ad pages. But the glossy spreads of broomstick-thin supermodels draped in Prada and Chanel, and the endless pages of ads for the finest clothes, accessories, and makeup the beauty industry has to offer, help make it the leading magazine of women's style. Fashion is the main event, but every issue attends society parties, goes inside the home of a celebrity designer, and travels to an exotic resort or vacation spot. Like Playboy, Vogue is a magazine you can claim to read because the articles are good. Famously, the September fall fashion issue can easily top 700 pages. --Katherine Koberg
Vogue is the fashion authority. Setting the standard for over 100 years has made Vogue the best selling fashion magazine in the world. Each issue delivers the latest in beauty, style, health, fitness and celebrities and your subscription will include the must-have Spring and Fall Fashion editions. Before it's in fashion, it's in Vogue!
- Mass with Class
How can you not love Vogue? In this day in age of reality tv, do it your self magazines, and everything banal that Americans love so much, it's really quite wonderful to have a fantasy. Who wants to read about themselves? Certainly not me. I love Vogue's photography and I really like the fact that they often publish photos that push the envelope, then someone will write a letter to the editor in a fury, and Vogue will publish the photo again - little tiny this time - right by their little letter. But c'mon now- what other fashion magazine can you read that also talks art, politics, and food? Yes, even people who can keep their food down like this magazine. Jeffery Steingarten is informative and entertaining, Irving Penn is a genius, the art direction is chic and smart, and the editors do a great job keeping an instituion alive and modern....more info
- Great magazine that can shape your life, or give you the apperciate for fashion
When I was a little girl I always tried to steal my friend mother's "Cosmopolitan". I didn't really understand what Cosmo really was, but at the time I truly believed that was what every women read. My mother found me reading it with my friend and almost lost her mind, when I came back from school a vogue was waiting for me in the mailbox. I thought it was my mother's but she told me if I was going to idolize a women's magazine and wouldn't stick to my Highlights or American Girl, I would idolize something sensible. I was just a little girl glancing at the glossy pages of high end clothing from Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, loving each beautiful model, amazed by the greatest photos ever taken for a fashion magazine (Annie Leibovitz has become the most used and artistically drawn photographer used by Vogue), and the best articles that can be used for brainless reading material or important advice.
Six years later I'm still reading Vogue (and can use the advice more productively than I could have when I was twelve.) I sort of matured faster than other girls, while they were talking about who were they taking for the dance, I was discussing why the price of silk and taffeta were lowering due to China's economy expansion and about Tom Ford designing for the retired Yves Saint Laurent....well not exactly but you get my point.
One down side is I've gotten addicted to the evils the Vogue brings. From it's amazing ads, I've come to love the more expensive things in life, like designer handbags and beautiful coats. I've even gone on more diets I can count (but this comes from Anna Wintour, who even told Oprah "I would love to be on our cover--but you have to loose 30", the woman is persistant about thinness in her magazine.) However, I truly feel that I have become the woman I am today instead of boxer wearing tomboy with no manners at all, because of Vogue.
The reason I gave only four stars is because I'm truly starting to apperciate W Magazine. It has the need to know gossip, the longer pages, and more of a down to earth approach for those who really don't associate, or can stand, the socialite world. ...more info
- Not as Good as it Once Was
Vogue used to be my favorite fashion mag out there, but today the advertisements are simply ridiculous. I think the ad to editorial ratio must by 90:10. It still has wonderful fashion tips, but the ads are becoming burdonsome. In Style has replaced Vogue as my #1 fashion mag, but I'll always be a Vogue reader....more info
- It's Great If...
Vogue is one of those magazines that I'm sure I'll subscribe to for the rest of my life whether or not I'm disgusted by it. Vogue is so much more than a magazine; it's an ideal. But I digress.
Vogue has huge high points. It's fashion spreads are gorgeous. The clothers, however, are sometimes odd or ugly, and most of the time expensive. The food column is amazing, and the movie and book reviews are informative and fun.
But it sometimes reeks of bad taste, whether talking about $2,000 lingerie or whether 11 year olds should carry Chanel purses. It gives off a whole 'richer-than-thou' vibe which is vile. I always feel guilty after reading the latest issue.
It all comes down to this: if you're into fashion and expensive things in general, it's impossible to dislike Vogue. But if you're the crusading type, it's impossible not to find it excessive and crass....more info
- Read it for the interviews
The clothes are fun to look at too - even though most of us can't even dream about buying stuff by Prada or Carolina Herrera. Maybe that's WHY Vogue is so much fun. This mag evades the snob category by covering very serious subjects in its articles and interviews, and they do slip in affordable fashions for the average woman. Fun, so it rates a five for me...more info
- Charged in December, But Nothing In Mail
I'd like to find out about getting a refund, since I've been charged for a magazine subscription without getting any actual issues. This is a very disappointing "special offer"....more info
- The Magazine Diva Says........
This mag has its ups and downs but there is no other magazine with more class and originality. It's an icon all over the world. The editor has inspired books and movies for her perfectionism and professionalism. She and Vogue have gone a long way toward making women strong and independent. Without Vogue magazine fashion would not be a multi-billion dollar industry....more info
- THE BEST!!!!!!
If your a woman and you love designer fashion this magizine is for you. I love the photolayouts of the clothing and the smell of the mag(sounds wierd). Good magizine for you fashionestas...more info
- Beautiful, but . . .
Vogue fantastic high fashion photos. If you love to look at beautiful clothing and shoes you need to look at Vogue. However, as other reviews have indicated, the articles are quite lacking. They are often flat without much substance on topics that are frankly not interesting. So, you get Vogue for the pictures. If your looking to ogle pretty clothes or for inspiration for an art project this is a great magazine, if you want something to read get something else....more info
- THE magazine to read!
Vogue has been the top fashion magazine for decades. If you want to know upcoming fashion designs from the world's greatest designers, you will want to read Vogue. Always a thick, lushly photographed production, you always get more than your money's worth subscribing to Vogue....more info
- A must have!
If you want to know ANYTHING about upcoming style and fashion, VOGUE is a must have staple!...more info
- cheap subscription + often interesting photography = value
I am an artist and web designer, and use fashion magazines as fodder for both. The edgier ones are much more inspiring, but they're also harder to find and much more expensive. Vogue is a cheap magazine with tons of photography and ads (which, lets face it, are far more cutting edge than the editorial shots).
It's not Nest or Surface or Dazed & Confused, but it is thick and it's just [$] an issue....more info
Yes, I'm a fashionista & this is supposedly the bible of the fashion industry! However, I find this magazine to be really dull. It has too many pages, too many advertisements & they show nothing but the most expensive designer clothes worn by the usual anorexic stick figure models who really need to eat! The articles are also very boring. They write about alot of really rich sociallites & high-society lifestyles. There's really nothing in this magazine I can use that relates to me. You'd have to be Paris Hilton to be entertained by this publication. If I want a great fashion magazine, I get ELLE because at least the clothing they show is a liitle more affordable & they have some great articles!...more info
- Still My Favorite Magazine
I 'discovered' fashion magazines at age 12 and, more than 20 years later, Vogue has remained my favorite. It exposed me to the glamour and lifestyle that up until that point I did not know existed - the fashion spreads and even the advertisements made (and still make) quite an impression on me. I especially enjoy reading Andre Leon Tally's Style Fax every month, in addition to "People Are Talking About," and of course the fasion layouts never fail to disappoint me.
Keep up the good work....more info
- Vogue Paris -- Paris free
If you're into fashion, but prefer getting it without a daily dose of whats happening in the lives of nyc socialities, then opt for Vogue Paris. Its in french of course, but who 'reads' vogue. Its also much pricer ($15), but if i wanted to see what Paris Hilton was doing, I'd buy YM. Shockingly enough, Vogue Paris is actually about fashion, not about what fashionable celebrities are wearing....more info
- Good for examples of haute-couture
If you love fashion, you need to get Vogue. Vogue will familiarize you with designers, classic style and the fancy-schmancy side of fashion that most other magazines will not get as deep into. However, most of what is in Vogue is way out of the average person's reach. I, for one, could very likely not afford one thing that has ever been in a single copy of Vogue. However, for whatever reason, the Vogue empire continues to publish this fashion tome and sell the subs for a VERY low price (usually $12 for 12 issues). Now THAT I can afford. It is an unbeatable deal. Will you glean anything from it? Yes. You will see how the other side lives and you will see some really wonderful photography and fashion at its best. Is it practical? Not really but it is fun and well worth the very low price. ...more info
- Conspicuous consumption
I got this as a freebie along with W and it lasted only as long as I received it for one year. The use of fur and skins was nauseating and I couldn't have been more disgusted at the vapid, innocuous, 'insights' it offered. This magazine has no redeeming social value. ...more info
- A good magazine but not like it used to be
Gosh how I yearn for the days when supermodels were splashed on the cover of "Vogue" magazine. I dont think I have an issue from within the past few years that a real model (and I dont mean Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon or Jennifer Aniston) has graced the covers for at least two consecutive months. I suppose this is Hollywood's answer to models becoming actresses that now the actresses are becoming models. Sorry but even though I think Nicole Kidman is a wonderful actress with a model figure, give me Gisele or Karolina any day of the week....more info
- timely and fun!
I ordered Vogue on Amazon and in less than a month I started receiving the fashion-ey goodness, including a 800 page issue-thing that could seriously do some damage to one's head if hit with it. Excellent mag for those who love fashion and Amazon got it here on the fly. Bravo....more info
- Ripped covergirl
Good magazine, but my complaint is that when I received it, part of the cover was ripped and crinkled. They should put some kind of protective cover like other magazines when they mail it....more info
- If you're a fashion enthusiast...
...then you will love Vogue! Vogue is THE fashion magazine -- the competition pales in comparison. This gem does not only supply beauty and fashion advice, it breathes it. I love the articles on the latest fashions, love the profiles on the latest designers and I absolutely love the layouts taken from runway shows in London, Paris, Milan, New York, etc. I shall continue to renew my subscription as long as Vogue continues to maintain my healthy diet of Valentino and Prada....more info

I bought it for my wife and she seems to like it though I am not sure whether or not she reads through all the texts may be she just focus on the pictures to get a idea of current fashion trend to give her some guidance in shopping....more info
- What in the world has happened to Vogue magazine??
I originally reviewed this magazine in 2004 and at that time I gave it four stars. Since that time, the magazine has deteriorated to the point that it's a toss-up whether to give it one star, or be generous and give it two.
Vogue used to be America's premier fashion periodical. Back in the day, when Diana Vreeland, and Jessica Daves before her, had the top editorial spot, the magazine was a byword for class and elegance. The covers were works of art -- some of them were so good that they were suitable for framing. The models actually looked like models. And the clothes exuded taste and style.
Enter Anna Wintour, and exit class, elegance and everything else that made Vogue special. The magazine started to skid straight down the tubes and, sad to say, the slide has accelerated. The covers have become just plain awful. I've seen classier, more artistic covers on Women's Day. The September 2008 cover was particularly dreadful. Keira Knightley, a lovely young woman, was shown with a hairstyle looking like a five year old had taken a blunt weed whacker to her head, wearing something that looked like Grandma's old curtains cinched by a cheap patent leather belt. The clothes in recent issues look like something you would wear to a bad Halloween party, at astronomical prices. And the models look like eastern European zombies. If Vogue is trying to sell clothes, they should start featuring clothes you can actually wear, and put them on somebody who doesn't look like the walking dead.
Vogue used to have pretty good articles, but recently they have deteriorated as well. They did run a very good, well-written, thoughtful piece in July 2008 on racism in the fashion industry in which they focused on the dearth of non-white models. Great piece, I thought as I read it, now maybe Vogue will take a look at the endless bland parade of European models in their own pages and start practicing what they preach. Yeah right. In every succeeding issue it was back to normal -- the same pale, empty-looking faces staring vapidly at the cameras. Not that a black model would mean a drop in sales. In July 2008, Italian Vogue dedicated the whole issue to black models and sold out its entire print run. They actually had to go into reprints. That issue has become a collectors' item.
The final nail in Vogue's coffin, as far as I am concerned, was their December 2008 issue featuring Jennifer Aniston looking luscious in a long red dress with the caption (on the cover, yet) "Jennifer Aniston: I think what Angelina did was very uncool". My eyes almost fell out of my head. Is Vogue trying to reinvent itself as a celebrity tabloid? If I want to read about the Pitt/Aniston/Jolie triangle for the umpteen-thousandth time, I'll pick up Life & Style or In Touch or something of that ilk. This is nothing more than the cheapest kind of pandering to the fans of the trash tabloids to sell their magazine.
Vogue does have good photography, I'll give them that much, but nothing that isn't presented better in Harper's Bazaar. And their layout is quite good; in fact, better than Bazaar's. But the overall substance and content of the magazine have deteriorated to the point where Vogue and I have finally come to a parting of the ways. I've just cancelled my subscription after ten years. Maybe if and when Wintour departs, the magazine will find its way back to its former eminence. Until then, I'm going with their sister publication on the other side of the pond, British Vogue. In just about every category, it's a much better magazine.

- A Highly Sought After Collectible
If it is in Vogue, it IS in fashion! This magazine, which has existed since 1892, is one of the premier magazines for women. It is an American magazine, but also has Australian, Brazilian, British, French, German, Italian, and Spanish Editions. It covers fashion, beauty, health, fitness, celebrities, movies, art, and other topics of interest to women. Vogue is mainly directed at the Jet-Set, but anyone will find its pages both entertaining, and informative. I have a subscription to it, and I collect it on the basis of its collectibility. Mine arrive in clear plastic bags, which are never opened (unless of course one of my favorite celebritie's is on the cover). I wish all magazine publishers used the clear bag method of shipping, because an subscription label directly on the cover of a magazine is frowned upon by most collectors. So unless you buy it right off the shelf, or it is bagged, most collectors will not be interested in it. Getting back to Vogue, if you want to keep up with what is IN in fashion, this is the magazine to have. You know those $1,000 dresses you've heard about? You'll find many of them modeled in here! Fashions photographed by some of the world's most renowned photographers, are featured in the magazine. If you're someone who enjoys reading about the Elite in women's topics, you'll want to subscribe to VOGUE....more info

This item was ordered well in advance of Christmas. Why no gift card with $5.00 gift certificate prior to receipt of magazine? I realize that the magazine subscription would take weeks, but surely an acknowledgement could have been sent for Xmas stocking....more info
- The best men's magazine ever....
For all men who love: looking at women in beautiful clothes; the magnificently sculptured faces; the exquisitely-shaped calf whose endpoint is the tip of the high-heeled shoe; the Nordstrom paintings; and the ingenuity behind the advertisements......
The March edition, currently on the stands now, and described as the biggest spring issue ever, is by far the best one ever put in print. The fashions are best described by geometry......
Its contents are the perfect reflection of the attitudes, aesthetics, and severity of the twenty-first century....more info
- Glossy Body Art
For me, the September issue of Vogue, with its 700 page issue, is more than eye candy. It's art. It's that simple. I no longer look at most of the fashion in the magazine, nor the models, as realistic, something that can ever transfer into my own life, nor would I want it to. It reminds me of trips to art museums where I can admire one painting half the afternoon, but it doesn't mean I want it hanging on my wall at home.
Vogue's photography is exquiste, pure art. The glossy pages, the vibrant, sometimes muted colors, seem to jump off the page. The images make my mind wander and explore. When I finally got over the ridiculous prices and the more ridiculously thin models with legs longer than I am tall, I was able to fully appreciate the artistry of the ads and fashion spreads. I find the ads are as engaging as the fashion spreads, which is a good thing, for the magazine is at least half ads.
Some of the articles are quite good as well. I scan the few society articles, and I've been surprised at the high number of well-written pieces that apply to the average world-wise woman. Cosmo readers most likely won't find much in Vogue, but I'd say women over 30, who are relatively sophisticated, will find articles geared toward them.
Overall, Vogue is a high end publication with excellent, artistic photographers and produces rather sweet eye candy with a good number of current, well-written non-fashion articles....more info
- All about the fashion in ads
People are always complaining about the ads. Well guess what, vogue is not a magazine to READ. It's a magazine to LOOK at. And that is my reason for being such a loyal subscriber.
I love fashion, and I love looking at the ads, judging outfits and models, comparing and contrastiong. I am an aspiring fashion designer (among many other talents) and Vogue is my key source to what goes into my portfolio. So Many ads with high fashion, cut out what you like, arrange, and paste it to show your creativity.
It's all about the clothing. Though it sure is a bit degrading. Media image portrayal on women is depicting; models typically being emanciated and tall symbolize beauty and everything else. Being all fashion, Vogue surrounds this world of the impossible "ideal", from a cover with the ghastly yoga super model Chrity turlington (who was featured bent in all abnormal ways wearing a skimpy yoga thong thing. *intense therepy*) to ads with the new "it models". So be carefull not to get sucked into the "ideal" vogue and fashion promotes.
In conclusion. if you just want literature, invest your money in the new yorker....more info
- Too thick like Huge Catalog or phone book
This magazine is full of the company's advertisement. The magazine is too thick and like phone book. unless reader is interested to go thru all the company's catalog, this is perfect for them. The only reason i am subscribe this magazine is their free gift. After all, their free gift is not so good after all, and one time they did not send my free gift. I can't wait to end my subscription. I subscribe this magazine for 2 times, and every time was hoping to read something more "educational". But, I am disappointed. ...more info
- Vogue is so OUT of vogue
A friend once said to me, "If you want a glossy that is a no brainer then get Vogue!"
How right she is, despite having glorious photography, fashion models that daren't stand sideways or you wouldn't be able to see them and the occasional good article in it, I have to admit I find Vogue too pretentious.
Vogue wants to be the voice of fashion, the voice of the high brow media but its clientele are the likes of you and me, ordinary people who can't afford to live the high life they are portraying on its gloss filled pages.
Personally I'd rather spend my money on a movie ticket, I get to see a good thriller, sci-fi, romance etc, etc I don't have to know about the substence abuse and emotional demons that haunt a particular actor's life, I'm just interested in enjoying myself for a couple of hours before I go back to my hard working life in the real world.
Vogue is trying to sell me a dream that I don't really want to buy into, never had a penchant for selling my soul to the devil, it's gets two stars though because the photography is really superb, shame about the rest of it though....more info
- Very Good Fashion Magazone
High fashion has become an art form, and Vogue is excellent in its presentation of the latest in women's clothes. What disappoints me is that like every women's magazine now, Vogue has mostly gone to having actresses and other entertainers on its covers. For that reason alone, I cannot give it 5 stars.
I wish these publications would be honest about what kinds of deals are cut to get the people they have on their covers. ...more info
- Best diet ever...
Keep a copy of Vogue in the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. One critique though, the pages retain puke and gastric juices and begin to smell a little funny after a while. You would think that the sample of Aqua di Gio would cover it up, but no....more info
- Boring, pretentious . . .
This magazine is so cold. Who are the women who read this regularly? Do they really spend money on trinkets that cost $6000.00 each? Whenever I see the glossy pages featuring narcissistic actors talking about their new Balenciaga gown or whatnot, I just want to scream. How can such ridiculous people actually exist? The photography is also pretentious and the models look so ridiculous in those ugly outfits. As an artist, I can't understand how people find such outfits - "haute couture" - as stylish. Please! This is definitely a magazine for narcissists and I'd rather read something dumb like Cosmo instead....more info
Does anybody really read this? Or, do file clerks just carry it around on the subway to impress each other?
It takes Vogue 500 pages to say nothing about people and things of no significance in the real world. Innocent trees are being slaughtered to provide endless advertisements.
It's the narcissist's bible.
I like to imagine that the editorial staff really sits around laughing every month about the worthless stuff they churn out -- just waiting for people to realize that this is a hoax. I pray that Vogue is the publishing industry's War Of The Worlds!
But then, I've always been an optomist....more info

Not for the interviews. Vogue is about fashion. I read it to stay up with what's what....more info
