    BTW I don't buy the "magazines cause social pressures to conform argument".
    Lots of research of readers of women's magazines shows clearly that readers
    are critical and interpretive consumers, not the emotionally insecure,
    retail therapy seeking women so currently beloved of the fictional world
    (Ally McBeal, Bridget Jones etc.).



    Since the death of Princess Di many mags lost their appeal to some! The
    sept 11 pics just too much, and yet a great seller also.!

    (there is another 1000 reasons to avoid them that the great Lady *herself*,
    i am sure, would have agreed with:-))

    The portrayel of Ally McBeal is a load of @@@@ many women are single and
    secure, but this is not what the audience wants to see, sadly..
