Every girl has a favorite fashion magazine — that one source of fashion inspiration, that one glossy that immerses her in the fashion world and fills her mind with fantasies of the best in couture and style. In fact, we girls so covet these magazines that we govern our daily fashion choices according to their centerfolds like they’re commandments of style.

From Elle, to Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, women’s fashion magazines are our ritual fashion documents — our fashion bibles. Interestingly enough, while all of the popular fashion magazines exhibit the best in style, they are all very different in what they offer the reader. Each fashionista has one magazine that she favors more than the others. So what makes these fashion bibles so different? Do they all profess the same commandments?


W Magazine's October Issue_Chloe Moretz cover

W Magazine is a lavish and almost exclusive publication for the reader with a discerning taste in fashion. W Magazine has been awarded for its breathtaking editorials and photography, making it more than just a fashion magazine, but printed art.


Vogue's U.S. October Issue_Sandra Bullock cover

VOGUE is a woman’s essential for the latest in fashion news, designers and trends. VOGUE exhibits high-end designers and fashion culture in addition to features on entertainment. You can always find the hottest celebrity gracing its cover.


Lady Gaga on Elle's October 2013 cover

ELLE is the fabulous combination of fashion, entertainment, and beauty rolled into one stunning publication. ELLE sets itself apart from other publications by producing thought-provoking articles related to women in addition to its customary segments on fashion.


Vanessa Hudgens on Marie Claire's October 2013 cover

Miley Cyrus on Harper's Bazaar's October 2013 cover
