I like reading women’s fashion magazines on airplanes because they don’t really require a lot of concentration. They are better on an airplane than a novel because I don’t want to concentrate on anything when I am flying for twelve hours. So women’s fashion magazines are sort of chewing gum for the mind, excellent on a long flight.
I don’t pay attention to fashion magazines at all. I rarely ever read magazines of any type and fashion is maybe at the bottom of the list of my interests. I don’t care about brand names they advertise. I rarely go shopping for clothes and prefer one style – comfortable. And I don’t need any magazine to choose things to wear.
I think fashion magazines are really stupid. The models look ridiculous. They are always in some special pose, in some special situation and the clothes they wear are strange. And the articles they publish are rubbish. Yeah, all fashion magazines are really senseless and are not worth reading at all.
I often buy fashion magazines just to have a look at. But I find that the clothes they show are, kind of, extreme. I mean, the latest fashion brands are for fashion shows only. It is for someone like Paris Hilton who has recently been in the fashion magazines a lot. Not many people would want to wear them outside.
I think fashion magazines are a bad idea. They show images of women that the average woman can’t keep up to. I mean, I regularly read Cosmopolitan and they give lots of advice on diets and exercise to keep fit and look nice. But in real life most women cannot look like models. It leads to a lot of unhappiness.
