It’s common knowledge that the magazine industry is going through tough times. Despite Allure‘s attempts to switch things up by scaling back the frequency of its print issues and dedicating issues to certain themes, our forum members are finding it hard to engage with the magazine’s new look and feel. Allure seems to have forgotten about a little thing called glamour and after a raw and unpolished Adwoa Aboah cover last month, Sasha Lane becomes the face of the ‘Disruptors Issue’ for May 2018. Photographed by Scott Trindle, the actress delivers a perfectly satisfactory portrait cover image.
Once again, our forum members are not in a rush to snag a copy. “OK, I’m done with Allure,” proclaimed jal718 the moment the cover struck, about to set the tone for discussion to follow.
“Seriously!! How is this magazine still around? Ever since Linda [Wells] left it has been such a mess. This try-hard indie feel does not suit, at all!” Miss Dalloway added in frustration.
