For the more mature reader, this is the fashion magazine of choice...hand over fist above Seventeen and Glamour, etc. which I loved in my youth. I wanted to subscribe to something with wonderful color photos and lots of beauty and fashion ads to keep me posted on what's NEW and trending now since I feel so out of the "loop" without it. So, it's true I don't have an hourglass figure or wear makeup anymore...still, that's the me I still am, at least in my mind, lol. And Marie Claire serves up plenty of fashion and beauty!
