  • I like everything, but I object to magazines’ not-so-subtle political messaging to its readers (‘stronger together,’ being a very recent candidate slogan). Maybe it’s a mere coincidence, but it would be nice just to see fashion without being hammered with social messages and propaganda.

  • Artists have always been very attuned to the political and cultural realities of their time, and manifests in their art in all kinds of ways – so more overt than others. I love seeing it reflected in a fashion magazine as it gives it more weight, for me. That Sofia….girl crush!

  • Artists have always been very attuned to the political and cultural realities of their time. It is often manifested in their art in all kinds of ways, some more overt than others…but it’s one of the qualities that gives the arts their meaning in history as well. I love seeing it reflected in a fashion magazine, because of course the photography and the fashion stories are art as well, so it gives it more weight… for me.
    And Sofia….girl crush!

  • Thank you not sure I will be able to get my mitts on a copy so a sneak view is wonderful! I am such a Sofia Coppola fan.

  • I agree with Karl Lagefeld fashion should stay out of politics, but this particular fashion spread I didn’t found it offensive

  • I’m with Paula.

  • Preston has made it very clear that she doesn’t want any sort of political snark on her blog…

  • Well put Kathy, thank you.

  • The Gentlewoman always has such stunning photography and fashion stories. A lot of their styling I later see copied in U.S. fashion magazines, which always makes me chuckle. Thank you for the sneak peek — it’ll be a while before this issue hits the stands on the West Coast!

  • Politics is part of life. The magazine has a point of view that starts with its name – which I’m assuming we all like. It is their right to have a political POV as well. I believe that only those with extreme privilege can afford to ignore politics. But certainly there should be some calmer oases where we can rest our minds if only for awhile. Hard to find these days.

  • Opening a fashion magazine used to be my ‘calmer oasis.’ Of course they have a right to express their viewpoints, but fashion magazines now spend more time advocating their viewpoints than they do on fashion. Subscriptions to fashion magazines and all major newspapers are way, way down. It might be that more and more free thinking adults are turned off by constant, heavy handed (and usually one-sided), advocacy coming from privileged elites like the people in charge of and on the pages of glossy magazines. Happily, the internet fashion thrives. : ))

  • I agree with Paula about being tired of politics constantly entering my leisure activities ( I am living in fear of watching the Academy Awards this Sunday!). But this particular magazine that Preston is good enough to give us a sneak peak of, hardly seems to be giving a strong political statement. I think it looks fantastic! I love Sophia Coppola. She has such style. I hope I can find ion the newsstand. ( and I applaud Karl Lagerfeld’s comments this week! Yay for him!!!! He use a true uniter! We may disagree on politics but we always have Chanel!

  • I agree with Paula and Paula B. I read and study fashion magazines for fashion.
    Those magazines that have determined their mission to include politics and political favoritism are losing me (and those I give annual gift subscriptions to) as a subscriber. I hope they see the unpopularity of their ways before it becomes too late for their salvation. Lynn

  • I’m with Paula 🙂

  • I pointed out months ago that it seemed unnecessary to inject political commentary into a discussion about fashion. It seems now that it’s only annoying to some people when it relates to the candidate or party they oppose.
