The biannual style publication has a singular reputation in the world of magazines: it’s known for its wit and impeccable sense of style — a magazine for women but not a women’s magazine in the conventional way. It offers a fresh and intelligent perspective on fashion that is focused on personal style – the way women actually look, think and dress.
In this seventh instalment of the magazine they bring together a group of accomplished, dynamic and inspiring women: the friendly Parisian fashion designer Isabel Marant, the superbly outspoken actress Susan Sarandon, enterprising herb farmer Jekka McVicar and, of course, our fantastic cover star, the incandescent singer and performer Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.
For spring time glamour we offer a plethora of handsome bags, splendid watches, pointed shoes and a portfolio of delicious clothes, for your visual delectation. A new perspective on the topic of manners is also introduced this season, and as always, we present insightful and charming conversations with some of the most fascinating women of today.
Even though the mag ran a cover of Adele two years ago (the singer was also photographed by McLellan), the biannual doesn’t typically feature such big-name mainstream stars. Beyoncé is a major “get” for a publication like The Gentlewoman, but it’s also in a way a big “get” for Beyoncé: the superstar can entertain millions of people at a football championship but then somehow, she still has something new to reveal about herself to a thoughtful, small-circulation British fashion journal.
