So interesting... I wonder if it's something to do with our training as women - that it's more appealing to think 'we can have the life that woman is living/be like her' than 'we can have what we actually want'... Thanks for a glimpse into your world, I enjoyed reading.

Loved reading this. Am endlessly fascinated by the inner workings of glossy mags, especially back in their hey day.

And agreed, I think we want to relate to the cover star, maybe even hope they can offer us some clues as to how we can be a bit cooler / more fun / better looking etc like them. Thanks again for a great read!
