skyhigh's review of Cosmopolitan

★☆☆☆☆

“Though I have never actually bought a copy of...”

written by skyhigh on 06/07/2005

Good Points
The fashion features are controversially brilliant, but with a wide degree of help from clever photography and background settings.

Bad Points
Its definitely aimed at middle-aged women desperately trying to recapture their youth. Articles about men and their "toned body", "how to look 10 years younger", it contradicts the whole message and importance of growing old gracefully, as well as the more important message of being yourself.

General Comments
Though I have never actually bought a copy of Cosmopolitan, as I'm still reading the hugely popular teen version, "Cosmo Girl". I have glanced the pages looking for the remotely interesting stuff, which appears to be nothing to do with fashion, but music and movie reviews. I noticed the increasing amount of advertisements in the magazine as well as insurmountable pages dedicated to diets and celebrity tips.

The amount of articles based on men and sex is out of proportion, how can Cosmopolitan call themselves a "Fashion" magazine when it is clearly become more like a porn style mag.

I don't think Cosmopolitan deserves all the credit it gets, with its lack of real issues, poor amount of fashion features, and self-obsessed diet articles (as if there aren't enough of those around!) it's not a magazine based on reality at all. I know for certain when I'm 35, I won't be a consumer of this magazine, I'd rather stay to true to reality and true to myself.

<br>Yes I agree. It really takes away from the magazine. I'm not saying sexual is bad, but the way Hollywood reflects sexual relationships (or one night stands) is reflected in this magazine. And that's coming from an 18 year old!
