September Issues 2.0

The September Issue… no, not the movie. Although I really enjoyed this Vogue and Anna Wintour documentary and embraced the wit of Grace Coddington, I’m talking about the issues, THE September issues. It’s a new year in the fashion world and if that’s not a valid excuse to why magazines are so damn bulky and full of excitment then I don’t know what is. A few weeks ago gigantic magazine issues hit the newstands and for those lucky enough to have a subscription,your mail box. It’s like an early Christmas present but this one got a little extra attention. Caressing the pages for no slips, creases or tears may sound as if I’m taking it way too far but you have no idea. Let’s not talk about the anticipation to find out which celebrity is covering the biggest issue of the year. High end ads, trends, interviews, beauty, fashion, lifestyle, politics, home decor never looked so good. So now that October issues are about to hit the stands I would love to know what was your favorite September magazine Issue. I really enjoyed the Vogue’s , Nylon and ofcourse Marie Claire. I would love to hear from you guys….

Chic Confession: Magazines Galore

Usually I people run out of closet space but if this was my only concern then my head ache wouldn’t be this severe. My name is Chantal J and I am a “Magazholic”. LOL On a serious note I think I’m addicted to fashion magazines. Everything from Vogue to Essence, Cosmopolitian, Elle, Vanity Fair, People, Allure, Lucky, Instyle, Marie Claire, Glamour… You name it. Funny thing is I’m only subscribed to one and that’s Instyle. This is more than a confession though, I don’t regret ever buying a single copy. Reading fashion magazines makes me happy, it clears my mind, it inspires me, gives me ideas its like I’m on a different planet.

Of course I have every copy of Teen Vogue (my favorite magazine), some not pictured. I’m missing the first ever issue and the Miley Cyrus  May 2009 issue which I lent out and never received.
(Teen Vogue handbook is also pictured if you’re trying to get into fashion or beauty…get it)
One of my many piles. p.s the others were too messy for camera. lol
Is this normal? Give me your thoughts …

Rihanna in Stephane Rolland

Just a few hours ago Rihanna hit the red carpet with a glamorously chic gown by
Stephane Rolland at Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year awards. Rihanna was honored for her philanthropic work with the “Believe” foundation and the positive reaction to her encounter earlier this year. This ensemble of creativity was put together by none other than her stylist Mariel Hann. More of the Glamour Women of The Year awards in a later post…


She rocked that dress and her hair looks nice also…


Rihanna: Glamour Woman Of The Year

Glamour Magazine will honour Rihanna as Glamour Woman of the Year along with 11 other woman. Glamour pays tribute to to courageous and inspiring who are masters in their fields.

Interview Snipet

Glamour: Let’s talk about this past year—you’ve obviously been through some difficult things. How did the people around you help you cope?

Rihanna: My friends and family have been extremely supportive, and everyone has been there for me. But at some point you are there alone. It’s a lonely place to be—no one can understand. That’s when you get close to God.

Glamour: Are you referring to the [Chris Brown] incident?

Rihanna: I am talking about starting with the night [before] the Grammys and then on. That was not the only thing that occurred this year. The picture leaking…it was one thing after another.

Glamour: You’re talking about the photo [reportedly of Rihanna’s injured face taken by police after Brown assaulted her] that was allegedly leaked by cops. You handled that so well; you kept silent in the press.

Rihanna: It was humiliating; that is not a photo you would show to anybody. I felt completely taken advantage of. I felt like people were making it into a fun topic on the Internet, and it’s my life. I was disappointed, especially when I found out the photo was [supposedly leaked by] two women.
