My Weekly Fashion Insider Read

For those who know me well, they will know that my secret weekly fashion fix is GRAZIA (UK version only). For those who don't know better, they might just discount GRAZIA as just another gossip tabloid mag like OK! or Hello. Well, those peeps don't know what they are missing.

Securing a copy of GRAZIA in Asia is like snagging a Hermes Birkin. Why? They are scarce as most stores only bring in two to three copies. I get mine from a little Indian newsstand that has been stashing a copy for me weekly over the past four years.

Granted that the cover of the mag doesn't do it much fashion justice with big headlines about celeb goss. If you do not judge it by its appearance and actually flip through it, you will be impressed with its up to date and spot on fashion stories, as well as forward-thinking fashion spreads. Being a weekly, you are guaranteed the breaking news as you don't have to wait a month or two. That's the edge GRAZIA has as a weekly over the monthlies.

The key bits that I love about Grazia...

Love the straightforward fashion charts telling me the top 10 new items to check out. I am loving the bright coloured Prada canvas totes...

"Top 10 Stories" spotlights the 10 hot topics everyone is talking about in UK. It ain't just about celeb news, it also includes political and social issues.

"You The Fashion Jury" is the interactive part that allows readers to critique celeb outfits.

Some pages from the fashion spreads. Don't you think GRAZIA's fashion spreads are as good as the top international fashion titles?
