Magazine Report Card

Elle is the first of the Holy Trinity of Fashion Bibles (Vogue and Bazaar) being the other two, to hit newsstands with their September issue. After the cover photo check out my report card on this issue.

Elle September 2008

Number of pages 636

Best Story: Tie Page 328 Passing the Bar and Cinderella Man on page 434

Story that moved me deeply: Au Revoir YSL on 254

Story that made me really annoyed is on page 510 I left my Wife for a Younger Woman Wtf- I want to read and only read about clothes. Why would I want to read about an insecure prick who leaves his family for his pierced assistant- what does this have to do with Marni's Fall collection?

Best Ads: Tom Ford White Patchouli on page 61 and and on page 133 Blumarine,
