but the celeb profile is not a fashion spread...W usually has 3 fashion stories a month just like every other magazine...

ok in the august issue of w...there's a spread of a (mostly) naked woman with these crazily long nails and a dolce and gabbana lace jumpsuit from the archives. while this made for intriguing photographs...there just WASN'T the new fashion i like to see in a fashion mag. vogue, elle, bazaar, for all of their faults, do still consitently feature good fashion.

Has anyone ever done a "Which is the best magazine?" poll?

the deal with W is that they focus more on the photography than other magazines...they are not such whores about using their advertisers and getting in credits...

they usually have an issue where they squeeze in a bunch of credits to make advertisers happy...but they aren't so commercial as other mainstream US fashion publications ...less like a catalog...which means that the photographers and the editors have more freedom to be creative...they are not limited to this seasons "it" items to come up with a great set of fashion photographs... this is what sets them apart from all the other mags and why most of the others all look the same...(do you remember how many times that chanel trench was photographed last season...)

if i just want to see the clothes...i can look on style.com...W isn't trying to sell you clothes...they're trying to sell dreams and fantasies...

just wait until the next issue...OCT...you guys are gonna DIE...hahahaha

W September 2004: Julianne Moore
Just wondering what everyone thought of W magazine. September's issue (with Julianne Moore on the cover) is HUGE (over 550 pages) and I'm loving it!

There were two great editorials, the one with Julianne (some amazing shots) and the one with Natalia (love the setting)

Relax, it's just one picture

I didn't like it. It was 480 pages of advertising and 20 pages of editorials. But then again I'm not into mainstream fashion so my view becomes biased. Some editorial images were good, I especially liked the McQueen dress image. I don't normally look at Vouge, W, VF, etc. but I purchased the subscription for $5 for my wife, and I leaf through it when we get it - always disappointed.

BTW, we have a thread like this already, maybe mods could merge these?

I thought I'd be covered with Vogue and Bazaar, but I guess I'll go pick this one up as well.

What's the use? 90% of ads will be the same.

Nope, Julianne Moore is the only person on the cover of W this month. I can't even remember the last time they put a guy on the cover.

It's not on sale here yet...I'm planning on buying it though when it is.

Hmm, does anyone know of a place where you can buy back issues of W?
