Fashion magazines teach readers to cultivate an aesthetic sense. What can one say about Star? Does it have any socially redeeming value?
A lot of the traditional women's magazines are too much work. They are full of how-to service information, and that can feel like homework. It's like how to ace a job interview, organize your desk, make a good impression on a first date, make sure he will call you back, paint your kitchen, not to look needy.
But didn't you yourself promote that how-to-do-everything-better trend at Glamour?
It can make you feel inadequate!

This is why I don't read fashion magazines. (This weekend I picked up an In Style, which you may have noticed immediately took over my brain.)
