Product Description


Who Reads Glamour?
With a circulation of nearly 2.3 million, Glamour is the only women's magazine to offer a 360-degree perspective on the reader's life: her relationships and her career, her clothes and her conscience, her pop culture and her politics. Sharp and smart but never cynical, Glamour informs readers without veering from its core message of self-acceptance. It is a magazine for women looking to stay up on the latest trends, get news-to-use advice and feel good about themselves. In other words, it's a magazine for every woman. No wonder Glamour is among the top ten best sellers in the U.S.

What You Can Expect in Each Issue:

  • Dos, Donts, News & Views: A splashy section that slaps the magazine's famous black bar on the latest cultural trends.
  • Glamour Beauty: A section filled with beauty editors' picks for the latest hair, skin and makeup products; tips, tricks and ideas; celeb trends; and alerts about troublesome phenomena (such as women buying nonprescription acne drugs online).
  • Glamour Fashion: Chock full of the latest styles and advice on making them work for your size, your shape and your budget, along with plenty of secrets from style honchos.
  • Men, Sex & Love: Fun, thought-provoking looks at how women can get the love bliss they deserve. This section includes the long-running favorite "Jake: A Man's Opinion," a column full of relationship advice from Glamour's resident guy.
  • Health & Bodybook: Packed with news about general wellness, sexual health, nutrition, anti-cancer advice and fitness, including exclusive shape-up programs, like Body by Glamour.
  • Life & Happiness: This section features columns on managing work and money, the popular "Am I Normal?" page in which readers can assess how their habits measure up to each other’s regarding spending, sleep, sex, you name it, and advice on dealing with friends, parents and bosses.
  • Glamour Buzz: A fun-filled section with book, movie, music and TV reviews; an interview with Glamour's latest cover celebrity (recently-featured stars include Fergie, Salma Hayek, Kate Hudson, Carrie Underwood and Maria Carey); a look at the latest star trends (insane or not); and the fun "Would You Dare?" column in which women act out pranks and gauge people's reactions (for example, sunbathing in the middle of a busy city street).
  • Glamour Real Stories: Here you'll find profiles of notable women, compelling you-won't-read-them-anywhere-else stories (such as "Escape from Polygamy"), editorials and "The Countdown," a list of notable cultural moments (such as women's worst public meltdowns ever). This section is also home to "Global Diary," in which journalist Mariane Pearl travels to a different part of the world each month to report on courageous women making a difference in their country.
  • How to Do Anything Better Guide: A roundup of the latest, greatest cooking and decorating ideas from top chefs and decorators.
  • Last, but not least, in every issue there's the magazine's legendary guilty pleasure, the Dos & Dont's back page, which good-naturedly points out real-life fashion triumphs and disasters.
  • Features: Glamour is an invigorating cocktail of decadent beauty pages, frank and funny talk about men, lust-worthy fashion spreads, celebrity scoop, smart news reports, health updates and stories of women around the globe.
Past Issues:


Contributors:
The magazine regularly publishes articles by notable writers and celebrities such as Eve Ensler, Carrie Fisher, Nora Ephron, Sheila Weller, Wes Craven and Bob Morris.

Magazine Layout:
Glamour is a proudly mainstream magazine read not by a handful of coast-dwelling cognoscenti but by 12 million women across the nation. So its design must always be accessible and inviting. That said, today’s average consumer is profoundly more visually sophisticated than she was a generation ago, and Glamour is happily rising to a new challenge: to give its inclusive approach a bold twenty-first-century edge.

Comparisons to Other Magazines:
Every month Glamour informs, inspires and entertains. The magazine's friendly voice and feel-good approach to women's looks, body, love life--their everything--is unique in the field of magazines. Signature features include Glamour Women of the Year, a salute to the world's most inspiring women; Top 10 College Women, an annual competition that recognizes scholastic excellence; and a personal-essay contest. While Glamour's content drives the public conversation, its presence online broadens that dialogue. Through blogs, videos and personal stories, Glamour.com provides a rich interactive experience for young women to get more details, ask more questions and share information with one another about the topics most important to them.

Advertising:
Glamour magazine attracts the largest advertisers in our category. From beauty to fashion to automotive to health, the magazine is continuously attracting the best brands in the business. Glamour made Adweek's "Hot List" of Top 10 Magazines in both 2007 and 2006, as well as Ad Age's "A-List" of Top 10 Magazines in 2005.

Awards:
Glamour is the most celebrated women's magazine in America today, having won 170 journalism awards. Recent ones include: The National Magazine Award for Personal Service in 2007; The National Magazine Award for General Excellence in 1995 and in 1991; Four Exceptional Merit Media Awards from the National Women's Political Caucus; Three Clarion Awards from Women in Communications and Five Front Page Awards from The Newswomen's Club of New York.

Amazon.com Review
Glamour is the twentysomething woman's "Miss Manners" and charm-school bible, bursting at the seams with intimations, propositions, and warnings: how to dress for a dinner party, how to turn him on in five minutes, how to avoid the dreaded "fashion don't." Glamour's mission is to help the young woman trapped between Seventeen and Vogue find her way to becoming a happier, healthier, sexier gal. Unabashedly girly, including all the things we've come to expect from beauty and fashion mags--celebrity style gossip, hot trends in hair and makeup, quizzes, and quick fixes for everything from broken nails to fractured friendships--Glamour is girl talk, pure and simple. --Daphne Durham



Glamour gives you the best hair and beauty tips that work for your face, our popular fashion workbook geared for your shape and your budget, the real scoop on all your relationship and sex questions, plus monthly horoscopes and important health and diet news. And your favorite Dos and hilarious Don'ts!

Customer Reviews:

  • A Fun Respit
    Glamour is a fun, girlie read and a bit of brain candy. It does usually have an informative public awareness article as well. But lets not forget the detailed reviews of what's in, regarding fashionable clothing and fun beauty products. Everything you need to make you feel like a hottie on a cold dark wintery day....more info
  • Disappointed
    I subscribed to Glamour for several years, and I agree wholeheartedly with the review by Kelly Oliver. The magazine's current focus on sex as well as the editor's apparent obsession with celebrities led me to cancel my subscription this year. Britney Spears on the cover was the finbal straw - if I wanted Teen magazine I would subscribe to it!...more info
  • Glamour
    There is no articles to read, most of the pages AD's, Yes it is colorful, but you can finish reading this magaz. in 10 min. And this particular mag. pay a lot of attention on sex. I feel kind of uncomfortable when my daughther reading this.
    Lana...more info
  • Good but not great
    It's a good magazine, but nothing spectacular about it. But then I just read a single issue of the magazine from my subscription....more info
  • Glamour Girl!
    This has to be my favorite magazine because It has a little bit of everything. Cosmo is about more carnal subjects, Marie Claire has many serious subjects, Vogue is pure fashion, Allure is practically a beauty bible but Glamour has all these things & it's that versatility that I like....more info
  • What a crime to see what has happened to this magazine!!!
    I first subscribed to Glamour in 1981, when I started college. I rarely let my subscription lapse until last year. I just couldn't take it anymore!

    Half the magazine is about sex. It is not about factual, informative sexual issues, but instead reads more like Penthouse articles.

    They give health advice that hearkens back to the 50's. They have no idea what they are talking about and often have factual errors. As someone in the health field, I am offended by their "non-advice".

    At some point, they will lose the customer base and the head honchos will wake up and realize they screwed up. I hope they can do it before this magazine goes away forever.

    Get a new editor!!! If women want to know about orgasms they can read Cosmo. I want informative articles about health and makeup.

    If you want to get the best beauty mag, get Allure. This magazine is consistently classy and you will be on the cutting edge of new beauty products and trends....more info

  • review
    i was very disappointed when i received my glamour magazine a few days ago. it was the december issue. we are in january and usually by now I usually receive the february issue. i don't understand...maybe there was some sort of mix up. ...more info
  • Ugh. There's a reason why I cancelled my subscription.
    I used to LOVE Glamour. It was great combo of frivolous fashion/girly stuff and great, serious, informative articles. I was a subscriber who faithfully read issue from cover to cover.

    A few years ago, I thought I had been delivered a Cosmopolitan by mistake. To my great sadness, I found that this was not the case. Glamour great editor, Ruth Whitney, had been replaced with some hack who decided that Glamour should look and read like it's trashy competitor, Cosmopolitan.

    Do we really need another, trashy, hyper-sex-focused magazine out there? Do we need another magazine that is overloaded with cheesy puns in the titles? (Why, why, WHY is that SO prevalent in women's magazines? Does anyone realize how dumb it is?)

    Save your money and don't bother with this COsmo rehash....more info

  • Glamour magazine review
    I am amazed at how fast the subscription started. I signed up through Amazon and within 3 weeks I had my first issue. It's a great magazine and I could not believe the price, 12 issues for $1.50, that's just too good to pass up. Highly recommended!...more info
  • Love it!
    some issues are a bit boring, but most of them have great advise on
    exercising, diet and fashion

    ..lloooveee itt!...more info
  • Great Magazine
    Keeps me interested... But the fashion is all incredibly high priced, not something you can ever afford, which sucks....more info
  • still not so good
    Glamour exhibits its predatory posture vis-a-vis the consumer in at least two ways.

    A good fashion publication informs, delights, and guides consumers who enjoy acting in this area (being fashionable).

    The Glamour on-line site links its return arrow to a back-to-site circuit, actively ruining a consumer's efforts to get general information. That's acting in bad faith. Why be "punished" opening a site?

    As a general rule, Glamore's occasional pieces of substance are at strong angles to its relentless sales pitch--always closing, closing, closing. Indeed, as a document of the fashion world, Glamour seems too often to suggest the old, dreary example--if its expensive--over the new, novel, more innocative example.

    In general, Glamour is like cooking with butter but without the benefit of the flavor, while keeping the calories.

    Very good. Cheap too. I got my sis a subscription too and she loves it too. ...more info
  • For Granddaughters
    I wanted a magazine here for my granddaughters to read when they were over, and this one is great!...more info
  • good, could be better
    Glamour? or Self? or Cosmo? By defualt I settle on Glamour. While I am happy overall with it I skip a lot of the magizine artticles. I find Galmour too political at times, and don't want to read about infirtilty, orphans, or abortion in a magizine I just got for fun. I also don't like the cosmo-like articles on crazy swinging from the chandiler sex. What I DO like is the how to do anything better guide, do & don'ts, the quick beauty, fasion, career, and deocorating tips. ...more info
  • Cosmo is not what it used to be, but this magazine is the worst one
    This magazine is as terrible as a magazine can get. Cosmopolitan isn't what it used to be but this magazine (Glamour) is garbage. Thank god I got the subscription for only $7 because other wise I'd call to have it canceled and demand for my money to be returned. This magazine has nothing interesting or new to read about......more info
  • One of the better magazines of its genre
    This magazine has improved since the days of Bonnie Fuller. She turned it into a Cosmo clone with lots of "how to please your man in bed" articles and other sex related features. The magazine was obsessed with sex, to the point that I quit reading it until a year or two ago.

    Nowadays there are fewer sex articles, though more than I would like. I do like the fact that Glamour covers a variety of topics. There's something for just about everyone. The dos and don'ts are fun, as well as the feature where a person does something really ridiculous to see how people respond. I will say that at 38 I'm starting to feel that I'm outgrowing the magazine a little bit. A lot of the articles seem to be targeted at someone younger than me. I'm not sure how much longer I will continue my subscription, but I do think this is one of the better women's magazines for gals in their 20s to mid 30s.

    One warning about Conde Nast magazines: when you purchase a new subscription, they send you two old magazines from previous months, and count them against your subscription. I really dislike this practice. It has happened with every Conde Nast magazine I've subscribed to. Also, I often receive my magazine well after it has appeared on the newsstand. This might not bother some subscribers, but it bothers me. ...more info
  • Finally a magazine for real women
    I stopped buying and ordering magazines because it seemed all they ever told you were things to do for your "man".

    Glamour actually has articles that make you think and make you laugh.

    Great mag for those who want more out of life than how to please their partner....more info
  • Ok for 12 bucks
    Pros:
    - has a splatter of fairly interesting articles/ pictures

    Cons:
    - all of the fairly interesting articles/ pictures can be usually read and viewed in under half an hour
    - (and in the table of contents/ on the cover they make a huge deal out of every, however tiny, article that's inside... often making cross-references/ multiple references to the same thing)
    - besides dwindling inspiration, this is probably generally due to the fact that the magazine is absolutely overwhelmed by ads! Much more so than before, it seems. I would estimate that at least half, but as much as 2/3 of the magazine is dedicated to ads - many of which are very much in-your-face and clash with magazine materials
    - although Glamour is more easy-going and not as pretentious as, say, Vogue... it has its share of preaching and hypocritical moments. For example, in the last issue they had an article about women/kids who escaped sex slavery in Darfur - with the interpersed full-page ads of bright red, high-heeled designer shoes! If you don't belive me, check out pages 256+ in the March 2008 issue... a pretty ridiculous sight.

  • A mag for all size women who want affordable fashon!
    LOVE THIS MAG! Who ever heard of a fashon magazine which includes ALL size/age women! GLAMOR DOES! One summer issue covered all body types and sizes - including what looked best on a size 24 women! TERRIFIC! Also a very thoughtfully written mag. I have no need for any other fashon mag....more info
  • Still have not gotten an issue
    Still am waiting on the magazine when I got an email a month ago saying it was being processed and I should get it shortly...more info
  • consistently blah
    It doesn't seem like there really is an intelligent magazine just for women. Although Glamour tries, it falls short in some areas.

    I've subscribed to Glamour for several years; it used to be a lot more interesting. I'm not sure when the shift occurred, but it went from being different each month to being essentially the same. They could recycle the stories, and I wouldn't notice a difference (maybe they do recycle them already?), because each month, it seems to read exactly the same.

    But, given that, it's still a nice escape from day-to-day life and work -- it's nice to read something that I don't have to think about too much. It's also a bit more liberated than Cosmo (which I find depressing -- all about getting men to want you) in that some articles promote mental & physical health for other reasons than being in relationships with men.

    Not bad, but there is still room for improvement....more info

  • GLAMOURAMA
    To date, there is no magazine parallel to Glamour. It is so well tailored, concise, and consistent, all while staying extremely fresh and appealing. The articles are real, and smart! The layouts are interesting; they don't have merely one color and one font. There is an array of texts and hues to keep the reader appealed and yet it isn't too busy. The magazine doesn't have raunchy articles, just very informative, professional, articles. And the advertisements don't rule the magazine. They are placed in the magazine to enhance its already dynamic appeal. The magazine is so well balanced that after reading it, one cannot help but feel deeply satisfied. Glamour incorporates monthly, beauty, fashion, religion, political, economical, and health, trends and details. All of which are researched professionally and veracious. If you are searching for a woman's magazine and like intelligent and fun articles, which have well designed layouts, Glamour is the magazine for you!

  • too many ads
    there's too many ads and not enough articles. Self magazine and marie claire are better for this reason....more info
  • A great magazine!
    I love Glamour! This has to be my favorite magazine of all times! Granted the ads drive me nuts but I love the Do and Don'ts and all the clothes. I am a shopping mogul! This magazine is great for showing new trends and I love layering and almost always they are showing new ways of layering clothes and teaching you how to wear your clothes in a different exciting way. I also enjoy the articles and life lessons as there is always something that I am interested in. I read Glamour almost from cover to back! I rarely skip articles! If you like fashion and just articles on every life issues this magazine is for you!

    **I have noticed a change over the last year in the magazine, but it is not terrible.**...more info
  • Quality women's magazine
    ...I think that Glamour has proven itself to be one of the most sensible women's magazines available. My perfect magazine would incorporate intelligent articles on health (not simply exercise, but medical issues), sex, beauty, career, relationships and travel. I think that Glamour comes very close to being the ideal magazine. I do think there is room for improvement--the quality and variety of these articles is not always what it could be. But I must say that I have actually kept one of my old Glamours because it has an excellent article on birth control pills that was extremely informative. I have never kept any other women's magazines! Glamour is not trashy like Cosmo, but I like the fact that it features fun articles on sex and relationships. I don't want the total focus to be sex and 'how to keep your man happy', but a little sex info is good! All in all I think Glamour is a quality magazine that is on the right track, but just needs to focus on being more informative and substantial....more info
  • I suscribe to this magazine every year!
    I have subscribed to Glamour every year! I love the features about careers and relationships most -- although I also do love the beauty and fashion columns. Women in their twenties and thirties should all read Glamour. It is smart, sassy, sexy and entertaining! Subscribe today!...more info
  • It's seen better days
    As others have said, the quality of this magazine has gone down. It still has some good articles on health issues, careers, and other important topics of interest to women. The pictures are great; if you're interested in fashion it's better than Cosmo (though not quite as good as Vogue). The new editors are too focussed on sex and relationships, though. There's more to most women's lives than our relationships with men. Still more worth reading than Cosmo, though....more info
  • Too much sex
    Glamour is a generally really good magazine, but it has a lot of sex. there was a really disgusting article about what you could do to make a guys erection come sooner, and it just dawned on me, that a lot of the readers of Glamour must be teenagers. they shouldn't be learning about sex that early! but it does have a lot of good articles, too. i like it....more info
  • I completely agree with Joy
    I would give this zero stars if I could - I subscribed to this magazine for years, and with the editor changes came extreme disappointment and cancellation of my subscription. The formerly classy, liberated Glamour became the voyeristic, sex-obsessed Cosmo. Gone were the entertaining and frequently thought-provoking articles, replaced by articles of ridiculous fashion advice (sure, I can see wearing a midriff halter, micro-mini, and blazer to my bank job) and what men want us to do in bed, peppered with silly photos of lingerie-clad women rolling around in the sheets. I don't dislike Cosmo, but if I wanted to read Cosmo, I'd read Cosmo - I no longer have that choice. Glamour used to have a sophisticated slant to it that felt like we were getting an edge - not anymore. I'm still disappointed, and I'm surprised more people aren't that would suggest to Glamour to make the change back. Too bad for me, and a big step down for Glamour....more info
  • One of my Favorite Magazines
    I get a lot of magazines. A lot. Very few get read through completely for obvious reasons; time, many other mags to read, not interested in ALL the content. This is one I read through each and every month, along with Parents, TV Guide and Readers Digest. It has great articles that appeal to almost everyone, humor, great advice, etc. I really enjoy it and usually read it as soon as it arrives!...more info
  • *My favorite Mag*
    This is my favorite magazine for the past 10 years and it's not expensive like cosmo....more info
  • great service, great magazine, great price
    always love GLAMOUR, better price than subscription renewal or new subscription at $10 a year with 2-year subscription, no extra handling fee, very fast delivery, less than 3 weeks...more info
  • Great, classy magazine
    I was an avid Cosmo reader for years, but it became more and more trashy... and then I discovered Glamour! It's filled with awesome beauty, fashion and lifestyle ideas without all the smut from Cosmo! The 'Hey, it's OK" section has to be one of my favorite; I look forward to it each month!...more info
  • One of the better ones in the genre
    As a young women's magazine, it does a good job of balancing the "essentials" (sex, fashion, career advice, health) while providing humor. Definitely less focused on the how-tos of sex than some similar magazines, which I prefer. Great at covering recent, relevant, health issues....more info
  • A good magazine.
    Glamour may not be the most intellectual read, but it never claimed to be Time. It offers articles about love, health, and occasionally world problems. It is not Cosmo, it has become more sexed, but it still has much good information. I love it, and still subscribe to it, even with a new editor. In fact, under the new editor, sales have increased, so she must be doing something right....more info
  • a "light cosmo"
    This magazine is a lighter version of Cosmo. But to do the magazine justice there are indeed more in-depth and interesting articles about people and issues compared to the mostly sex and dating tip-filled (and bad tips if I might add) Cosmopolitan Magazine. Overall, I think Glamour magazine is entertaining. I enjoy it. I used to love the more humorous segments with a girl acting out something embarrassingly goofy on the streets and being photographed but it seems like they've been veering away from that. I also enjoy the book reviews (which also seems to be decreasing) .. hopefully it's not slowly evolving into a Cosmo rival full-blown. I don't plan to discontinue my subscription any time soon!...more info
  • fun and light reading
    I really enjoy Glamour. It's total "brain candy" but I do get a lot out of it and it's a quick read, which will get you the info you're looking for in not a lot of time. Some good beauty and exercise tips. Interesting interviews from time to time.

    I think it's a bargain, even though I don't read it cover to cover....more info
  • Glamour is OK
    As far as beauty and fashion magazines go, I think Glamour is one of the better ones out there. I think it strives to be modern and tasteful while still keeping us updated on the usual topics we expect from it: fashion, beauty, dating, and careers. I would have to disagree that the articles are basically the same from month to month. I think many of the articles are entertaining and well-written without being tedious to read. They also appeal to an intelligent audience with an eye towards improving themselves. The only improvement I could see is making Glamour less mainstream-y....more info
  • glamour not for teens
    This magazine is full of very adult advertising. They seem to aim towards teens but most of it is advertising. I had a hard time finding an article that wasn't selling something. I thought is was interesting enough for my 19 year old but realized its not even interesting enough for my 15 year old niece....more info

  • an updated review
    After I bought Glamour off the news stand, I read it and completely loved it. The previous reviews were a little bit out of date here on Amazon, and in my opinion, a magazine can transform dramatically in a year, if not less. There's definitely a lot less fluff and a lot of wonderful articles in 2005. For example, there were articles about the emotional hardships with a mom whose kid is mentally ill and the story of up coming star as a happily adopted child. There were articles on women who struggled so that girls today can play in Little League, women can get credit cards and keep their job when they get pregnant. There's a lot of important and powerful article on women's rights with a dose of celebrity life. My favorite article was Aisha Tyler showing us how much digital touchup can do to cover models....it definitely made me feel a lot better about my body.

    I felt like Glamour had enough dosage with fashion, health news, beauty tips, and celebrity life, but still did a great job to remind us the greatness of being a woman. I gave it 4 stars due to the fact that I had flip through 6 pages of ads before I got to the table on contents. I suppose that's how magazines make their money, but I can do without. Other than that, great mag! If every issues is like the one I read, I'd subscribe to it in a heart beat.

    In a world full of teen magazines, I am thankful to have a grown-up outlet for pleasurable reading. ...more info
  • Nice read, but...
    I used to buy Glamour when it looked interesting and decided to subscribe to it now in order to save money. I ordered it in mid November and just received the first issue today. What really irritates me is that I received the December issue today- although the January issue is already in stores (and I had already bought the December issue). So although I like the magazine, the subscription is off to a bad start......more info
  • my thoughts... uh hem
    Heard of Cosmo? Very similar but a little less edgy for the young woman 23-25 on beauty/dieting celebs you REALLy care about and unforgetable stories pick it up once you'll nevef want to put it down....more info
  • My favorite "trashy magazine"
    I've had subscriptions to just about every woman's magazine there is over the past 8 years, but the only one I always renew is "Glamour". It's less "how-to-catch-a-man" oriented than "Cosmo", less pseudo-hipster than "Jane" and less serious than "Marie Claire". While it's certainly no "Ms." magazine, it has a lot of women-positive messages every issue, articles that aren't as sensationalistic and fear-mongering than most found in women's magazines, and lots of fashion and beauty tips. I feel that "Glamour" strikes the right balance between frivolity and seriousness--for those of you who like a side of third-wave feminism with your fashion, I highly recommend it. ...more info
  • Inspirational, good mix of world issues and fashion
    This is a really good magazine, 'coz it doesn't only talk about fashion do's and dont's, but also about world issues. It includes inspirational stories about strong women, successful women, also women who are struggling in their lives. It has good health columns, and other stuff....more info
  • By Far the Best Magazine on Newstands
    This is by far my favorite magazine. It's dynamic- it doesn't just focus on one topic, but many! Glamour has something for everyone, be it makeup tips or clothes for your body type, work out regimes, sex tips, and articles on global issues. Yes, some of the articles can be a bit repetitive, but come on, your reading a magazine, not a Shakespearean novel.
    I love the articles by Marianne Pearl. She is traveling the world for Glamour, writing stories about social issues in our world. Not only are the articles well written, but they are uplifting and give light to problems that the media often ignores.
    The Glamour Beauty section focuses on tips for applying makeup for the current season and fun hairstyles to try. Glamour Fashion has clothes that are mostly affordable for the everyday woman and it's fun to look at all the different styles. In addition, there is always a "Do and Don't" section which shows people wearing both ridiculous and chic outfits. The Men, Sex, and Love section usually has a Do and Don't section as well, and advice for women written by real men. Sometimes the celebrity interview can be a bit bland- they are often just promoting a new CD or movie, but others have been quite interesting. This section is often hit or miss.
    What I like best about Glamour is the Real Stories section. There is always a page about an everyday hero, which is uplifting to read. Plus, usually a celebrity will tell about a transforming time in his or her life.
    I love that Glamour isn't like every other magazine. There really is something for everyone and I always look forward to it every month....more info
  • Good articles
    I found a couple of articles that were worth the years of magazine subscription. A bit like MORE for 30 year olds. I dislike articles on fashion and relationships, read COSMO if you need them. And read GLAMOUR for health, career and general info....more info
  • A tarnished legacy
    One of the greatest magazine editors ever, Ruth Whitney, made this magazine a must-read. In addition to the "10 Tips For Terrific Toenails"-type story (as Dave Barry once joked about Glamour), it had solid stories on women's issues. There were also features that dared to go on for pages and pages.

    Then Whitney was ousted and they brought in the editor of Cosmo. Bye-bye real content, hello sex obsession. That was the beauty of the old Glamour: The sex was there, but so were the terrific book reviews and stories on health. And back then, it was "gynecologist," not "gyno," as in the new Glamour shorthand.

    Sorry, Glamour, but it seems your focus on libido has taken away the magazine's former best feature: Brains....more info
