Bought the March 2014 issue (343) of Elle with actress Dakota Johnson on the cover. Apparently, she stars in the upcoming “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, a film based on the greatest book ever if you believe magazine´s such as this one. I doubt it, I think it is a woman thing. Still, maybe the movie is good, who knows? If it turns out to be memorable, this issue of Elle will be a nice addition to the old collection. Got it cheap in any case, some sort of campaign.
Elle is not your ordinary magazine, it is pretty much a book. A book with pictures, lots and lots of pictures. I count 528 pages, which is not bad value for money. You would need to live in a castle to have space enough to collect this magazine though. I could cram at least eight copies of Commando into the same space, but then I am a guy so the editors of Elle probably never thought about that.
Another thing about the fashion scene that I will never understand is the Twiggy kind of look that never goes away. About half of the models in magazine´s like Elle look like they are starving. Will we ever see this business wise up, get a heart and offer up some sandwiches on set?
Nice cover though. Dakota seems to be a nice gal.
