Good

Good coverage on latest catwalk trends, full of us...

Many articles in the mag have an unhealthily bitch...

Elle magazine is one of those women's fashion glossies which has stood the test of time (It was started in 1945!). Costing £3.50 an issue if you buy it off the newstands (and costing a bit less if you subscribe - you pay £6 for the first 6 issues/6 months, then pay £16.80 for subsequent 6 issues...

good for stuffing under draughty doors

it's rubbish

Oh please! If this is a magazine for contemporary women then I've been on the planet Zarg for the past decade. I would ask who on earth buys this - but I know. It's bought by the folks lured by the freebies on the front. I confess - I am one (the book wasn't bad either). Such freebies are...

Free Make Up Bag!

Too Many ADVERTS!!

I'm not a big buyer of magazines; usually only doing so when I'm at the airport and desperate for something to take my mind off the flight - which is why I bought this one. I have to admit, I was swayed by the fact that it included a free make-up bad thingy; (yes, yes; I know that is a little sad...

“Shallow - Elle Yes”

published 26/05/2003

sometimes offers good free gifts!

shallow, humourless, huge amount of advertising

Elle is a women’s monthly fashion glossy, which costs £3.00. It is, according to the magazine itself, ‘The biggest selling fashion magazine in the world’. I purchased this publication in April 2003, for the purpose of reading on a long car journey. I was attracted by the picture of Drew...

“Elle-o!”

published 17/02/2010

price, thick, glossy

/

I am quite wary of buying magazines. Usually they will give out headlines on the front cover that reflect nothing of which the articles are about. And nine times out of ten, the stories you can find in the magazines are readily available for you on the internet free of charge. However on this...

“Patronising rubbish”

published 27/07/2000

caters for its own market

high on the yeuk factor

I don't think my fellow reviewers are reading the same Elle that I've seen recently. The Elle that I've seen assumes its readers are obsessed about whether their bathroom is exactly the right shade of blue, their brats are going to the right school and their stretch marks will send hubby in...

“Ads, Ads, Ads”

published 14/07/2001

lots about fashion?

The price. The content.

All the opinions I have written so far have been positive and were for the product or service. I decided to write this opinion on Elle magazine purely because the last copy I purchased, I only read 10 pages in it. Now I do like looking at fashion but I also like to have something that I can read...

“I heart Elle”

published 02/09/2005

marketed at the strong, competent woman

at times a bit 'twee'

Elle has come a long way. Becoming a credible fashion magazine is a hard task, living in Vogue's shadow is a very daunting prospect. However, Elle has become a magazine in its own right now, gaining the confidence to really rate its own views and opinions. Branching from fashion and beauty into...

“"Look at Me! Look at Me!"”

published 29/01/2006

Cheaper than Other Leading Fashion Mags, Comes in ...

Patronising and Extremely Disappointing!

Every 30 days (approx) the stands of newsagents and bookstores all across the country are revived, refreshed and renewed as the new edition of Elle UK appears on them like a breath of fresh air. Or so you would think. My story begins about 19 months ago; I decided to pull my socks up and actually...

Good if you have an interest in fashion.

Not enough journalism.

I purchase ELLE magazine every month, and I am actually a fan of the magazine. However, I do feel there are some elements of the magazine that could be improved on, and I must admit it is not very good value for money. However, if you are interested in fashion, and like getting a feel for new...

“Elle magazine”

published 22/06/2008

Fashion ideas and beauty tips

Too many advertisements

This magazine is good for style ideas, but it is very expensive considering how many adverts are in it. It could do with more stories. They could include more affordable clothing, however, the pages on designer clothing is good for pciking up ideas and taking those ideas to the highstreet to do...

In my opinion Elle magazine is my monthly guide to fashion, it features all the key trends each month, with much detail and examples of how to wear the trend. It also has an interview with a few guest celebrities- usually an actress, model or singer etc. Fashion notes, blogs, fashion photo shoots...

“Elle is awesome”

published 09/01/2009

A fat read for a great price

None

This magazine is a fat read, I read it cover to cover every month and for under £4 it great value for money. The fasion pages are always inspiring and they do a piece on looks for less money. So you can look like you've got the latest catwalk pieces for a snip of the price. You also get to delve...

Too much writing sometimes

ELLE is a magazine for the fashion lovers, not always the stick thin models, but for everyone, they offer magazines for each season about high street bargains etc. The advertisements are placed well in all of the magazines, as to not interrupt the article. Elle is a magazine for the fashion...

Elle is a great magazine which is out once a month. The magazine is catered for women of today and deals with everything from fashion to daily life and home decorating! The fashion is available in most places but also has that wish list quality - ie I wish i could afford that coat, dress or...
