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 ... Read review

Good for learning about the latest catwalk trends + fashion tips

AdvantagesGood coverage on latest catwalk trends, full of useful fashion tips, interviews of celebs are good

DisadvantagesMany articles in the mag have an unhealthily bitchy, self-obsessed, weight-obsessed slant

"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 every 6 months, which is around 20% less than its usual price) it is not one of the cheaper magazines on the market, but for what it does, it does quite well. ..."

Flamin' Elle - What a Load of Rubbish

AdvantagesFree Make Up Bag!

DisadvantagesToo 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!!!) but my own make-up bag was looking a wee bit shabby, so I decided to go for it. I was also partly convinced to part with my money because it looked ..." Read review

Shallow - Elle Yes

Advantagessometimes offers good free gifts!

Disadvantagesshallow, 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 Barrymore(an actress I have grown up with and respect)on the front cover and the sheer size of it, 362 pages! Surely this magazine would provide hours of reading ..." Read review

Elle-o!

Advantagesprice, thick, glossy

Disadvantages/

"...we are given a free Elle Accesories booklet, which is not exactly thick, but this does have lots of information about shoes and accessories; where we can buy them, how much they cost, and if they come in any other colours. This thankfully was a delight to look through! Elle magazine costs £3.60. That's £3.60 for a good 300+ pages of adverts. That's about 1p an advert. Do you really want to pay a penny to look at a picture of a model clutching a purse? ..." Read review

I thought we'd moved on since the 50s?

Advantagesgood for stuffing under draughty doors

Disadvantagesit's rubbish

"...whether or not magazines like Elle can claim accurate circulation figures when 'inducements beyond the incidental' (to use their words) are on offer. In other words - would we have bought it if we hadn't been bribed? I would certainly hope not. I am sure there are women who spend hours of their day worrying themselves silly about whether pink socks with white stripes sent out a different social message to white socks with pink stripes; or whether ..."
