i’m rather, scratch that, very, disappointed to see vogue may 2009 issue. it’s because of its main feature: the real lives of models. i couldn’t care less about them!
i don’t care what they eat and pretend to not eat and tell the world they stay thin naturally. i don’t care who their boyfriends are or how they met. fashion is interesting. i want to know about how clothes are made, how a collection is created, how a young designer has come to the point s/he is today, how the established ones built their empires. those stories would be mind provoking and inspiring even.
lives of models are not.
did vogue run out of smart thing to say already?
this issue is very light, in weight and substance. too bad that the subscription is non-refundable or i’ll definitely want my money back. vogue is still nice. i still enjoy their many articles, which are crafted with finesse, and touch of class. fashion spreads are beautiful as ever. this feature, however, is such a let-down.
i wish to see more of vogue march 09 issue, of which michelle obama was on the cover. that issue wasn’t only pleasant to read, it’s brain nourishing. i miss that.
fashion magazine doesn’t have to be shallow.
maybe i should switch back to glamour.
