Teen Vogue March'09 - Taylor Swift

If you're new to Teen Vogue, this issue would be a perfect serve for a lovely introduction, leading to the possibility of falling in love with the magazine. But for an avid reader, the March issue is lacking its Vogue-juiciness (I'm the avid reader needing stronger dose to get impressed.)

Welcoming Spring, the A to Z view and Shopping Spree are all about the trends and other highlights to get you ready for the upcoming season.

Not to be missed are the fashion spreads Beautiful Dreamer (introducing menswear pajamas as the next must-have fashion item!). I’m loving the pattern details – stripes and polka dot.
And the regular Runway – Ourway...

Stars featured includes cover girl Taylor Swift, Ed Westwick of Gossip Girl, model Behati Prinsloo and Disney’s Demi Lovato.

In her interview, Taylor confessed that she’s a big fan of Oscar de la Renta, she’s obsessed with high heels and has no definite plan to try acting soon. She describes herself as the girl next door – the girl whom “the hot guy is friends with and gets all his relationship advice from but never considered dating.”

My favourite must-read article would be the article “Key Players”, teen fashion bloggers special. The word ‘blogger’ and ‘fashion’ excite me. Here, Teen Vogue explores some well-known fashion style blogs created by girls from age 12 to … and how their opinion and sense of style have shaped the world of fashion.

This phenomenon has got the media & fashion industry talking – I remember reading similar articles in various paper and mags. As a blogger, I definetely find pleasures in browsing and reading these blog and sometimes I’m amazed how these girls can do it, and do it great.

Like I’ve said before, this issue is what (I think as) the usual Teen Vogue. Nothing extravagant, but enough to get and hold your attention.

Just a thought: I actually wondered if Teen Vogue would get a new Editor in Chief in the near future. Amy Astley has been a great one, but after 7 years as the leading lady of the magazine, do you think it’s time to give someone else a chance to ‘re-create’ the magazine?
