It always feels a bit silly to follow the hype and I had already read so much about this new magazine that I wasn’t too keen on buying it, but when cover girl Phoebe Philo looked at me sternly from the shelves I couldn’t leave her there. The ladies’ version of the 'Fantastic Man' wants to introduce us to 'a new decade of inspirational, international women', like Céline’s new creative director, winemaker Sarah Pérez, artist Jenny Holzer or architect Kazuyo Sejima. According to the editors it’s not about celebrities, but about women who do things in their life. It also features beautiful, mainly b/w fashion photography. After having spent an hour with the Gentlewoman I thought it was the most inspirational magazine I had looked at in ages. Shame it’s only biannual.
Have you discovered an interesting magazine lately? Or with blogging and the internet, do you read any magazines at all?
