Introduction to Lifestyle Magazines

 1) Identify the different 'types' of content in the magazine i.e. health:
Throughout the magazine there are different types of content found the majority of the content found are advertisements and chat columns. After looking at a number of magazines in the majority of them all of the content is the same. You see constant adverts such as Gucci, Prada, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and many more famous brands.

2) Discuss the layout of the page. From your analysis what gender and type of person is this magazine for?
This magazine in my opinion is aimed at women to tell them what to dress as and how they should look. I believe that women would look at these magazines for tips and just to see the gossip of the present. In the picture we was given of the contents page we can see a shoe, a blonde women with an upright figure blonde hair and a red top, this color indicates sexual interest. Some of the Content shown on the page also indicates women should follow everything the magazine says. "What You'll be wearing next summer" Is not just what will you be wearing they are telling you "What You Will be wearing Next summer" This may be to push women around or just to give them the insight to what the fashion would be next year.

3) How would someone hope to benefit from buying this magazine?
Someone would hope to benefit from this as it gives people something to read, whether its about Celebrities, clothes or what is going on in the world. People mainly women would find these magazines interesting due to being able to see gossip and new fashion and makeup tips. People gain enjoyment out of this for many different reasons.
