Fun With Glow Magazine, November 2009

Hey folks! It's Fun with Glow Magazine, again, in which I flip through Glow magazine to identify just how racially representative the media in the magazine is! I get Glow for free since I spend plenty on my Shoppers Optimum. I actually do love this magazine, but hell if I'm going to not make fun of how whitewashed it is.

And this month, it's a double-doozy since there's a special issue on Montreal's Fashion Week!! So let's get through the main magazine!

Pantene: white, white, STACY LONDON!!!!!, and a Dr. Jeni Thomas, senior scientist for Pantene (also white)

I gotta say though, Glow magazine also has some nice splash pages of products, and there's an article on good vegetables featuring absolutely no human beings consuming said vegetables. And the graphic setup is done in such a fun, funky way too. See, you CAN have pretty images without the pretty people.

Balea: have no idea! You don't see her eyes, and only a shoulder.
Nutrition editorial: asian...? *flips page* Yeap.
Vaseline: LOL! I can't even begin to describe this advertisement but it's full page and it looks completely awesome and hilarious.
Allude: Look! Legs!

Diet Coke: It's my favourite funky shot with a black woman and what looks like a full-blown natural afro. Love.

Tresemme: White hairstylist, working on a white woman.

And now for the fashion shoot with the white emo-looking model. One somewhat medieval looking outfit, followed by a buncha emo-looking oufits, average price range of $100 and the cheapest damned item are a pair of $13 legwarmers from Le Chateau. Seriously? $315 for a BELT? Seriously, $650 for BOOTS?$50 for SHORTS? $340 for a VEST? FUCK THIS SHIT.

White, white, - FOOD! Four pages of food! <3

And now, Montreal Fashion Week special! Cover: White chick! White, white, white, white, white, white, white, white, white, white, white, white, white dude, white dude, white dude, blacvk dude, white dude, white dude, whitewhite woman, white white, asian chick and asian dude (in this bit talking about Dinh Ba Nguyen!
