I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of new magazine STYLIST, since my last blog post (see here) i havent really heard much about when it was being launched. However, yesterday as i was on my way from the Topshop Student event to see Inspector Calls at the Novello Theatre (pre-birthday event with a few friends) i was handed the first ever issue of Stylist. The magazine is a fresh take on a women's weekly, pushing the boundaries on publishing, Stylist is a free-sheet which means that it is a free magazine as it relies on soley on advertising to make profit. Which is absolutely amazzzing if your like me, who spends horrific amounts of buying Grazia and Look every week as well as all the fashion monthlies (£££!).

Stylist, amazingly enters the women's magazine market with a fresh take on fashion and style, with a mix of news, top picks and fashion spreads. The design and style of the magazine is effortlessly chic and stylish (true to the title, i must admit). Choosing a head shot of the ever gorgeous Angelina Jolie, was sure to pull a great interest of the women of London, instead of the usual paparazzi shot of any B-List celeb. (i am sick of seeing bloody Jennifer Anniston on every cover). The magazine also offers well written features, boasting news, travel, events, fashion, beauty, art, film, food with interesting interviews. Seriously, could it get any better, a free magazine offering women everything they want/need to know, perfect.

I will be sure to pick up Stylist every Wednesday, but unfortunately it is only being given out in big cities across the UK, but not to fear the magazine can be viewed online here.

Have a sneak peak at the first issue:
