New Era?

The launch of Vogue Turkey made me impossibly happy, although I cannot read the magazine or actually have one in my possession it was a great day for the fashion world. They not only featured a model on the cover, and not some silly celebutante, but got rid of the busy coverlines and focused on the actual fashion.
I feel like magazines have gotten away from the actual clothes and been more focused on the gimmick and how to sell their products. Which is ultimately the goal but hopefully our American magazines will take a note from Turkey and reintroduce simplicity and authenticity. Jessica Stam is impossibly gorgeous on the cover and the whole look makes me want to jet over and buy a copy for myself!
