REAL LIFE STORIES
It is obvious that Elle is a very high end magazine with about 65% of its contents being advertisements for major brands such as Gucci, Tiffany & Co, Karen Millen, Aldo, Pandora, Guess, to name just a few. The front of the magazine is more heavily populated with advertisements than the back. Towards to back there are more articles and classic Elle style stories. As a whole the magazine gives a thorough impression of a certain lifestyle, and shows that the fashion world is just that, a whole world, a lifestyle and for some possibly a Bible.
CONTENTS THAT ARE MISSING:
Although Elle is a very high class magazine, showing the creme de la creme of fashion and designers, I think perhaps what could be missing is a more 'economy friendly' section. Whilst still keeping the whole feel of the magazine to the highest standard some of its customers could feel somewhat isolated form this lifestyle in the current climate.
BRING AMAZING STYLE AND FASHION TO THE MASSES.
A 'credit crunch' style insert could help connect the gap between high end designers and affordable fashion. Creating a small insert that shows how high street can be made to look high end could help the audience to interact more with the magazine and show how the 'real woman' can style themselves in sometimes what seems like a dream-like world.
