When we embarked on this reader-led poll several weeks ago, we had no idea what the outcome would be. We didn’t get any say ourselves, other than defining the categories, it was all up to blog readers to make the call about their favourite magazines. Interestingly, the start was slower than we’d expected but soon gathered pace with thousands of votes in the end. So the winners:

Best UK Magazine: Grazia.

Best For Beauty: Glamour.

Best For Fashion: Look.

Best Monthly Magazine: Glamour.

Best Weekly Magazine: Grazia.

Basically, Glamour and Grazia scooped the board! We’re surprised at the Best Fashion Magazine result: no Vogue and no Elle.. and not even close. Look’s easy and accessible fashion was the reader’s choice, meaning that what we’re after is fast and affordable fashion and a magazine packed with translatable ideas. Glamour and Grazia both took their categories by a clear mile with Grazia claiming 40% of votes in the Best UK Magazine category. 

So, here we have it; the most current and up-to-date survey of what you’re reading and loving in magazine-world. Thanks to everyone who took part and particularly to my friends at www.beaut.ie who had all the counting to do!
