Glamour? Really? The American Society of Magazine Editors hosted their annual National Magazine Awards and completely overlooked fashion magazines. Vogue was only nominated once, for Photography/Print, and they ended up losing to Vanity Fair. Elle, the Number One Women’s Magazine in the country, wasn’t nominated for anything! And then to give Glamour the Magazine of the Year is completely insane. What they think the magazine did to deserve the highest honor is beyond me.
It’s flashy and celebrity driven. It focuses on trends and “What’s Hot” instead of fashion, or at least high-end fashion. And their editorials, if you can call them that, are not up to the standard that has been set by real fashion magazines. They had so many great magazines to chose from like, Vogue, Elle, Vanity Fair, W, Harper’s Bazaar, New York Magazine, The New York Times Magazine and many others but instead this esteemed group of individuals chose a tacky, cliche mass market magazine that writes about “What Men Really Think” and “8 Foods that Make you more Beautiful.” I am really disappointed that of all the brilliant magazines they could pick from they chose Glamour.
