Undeniably The Gentlewoman has re-defined what a woman’s fashion magazine can be by having a real opinion about the world around us. It’s all thanks to editor-in-chief Penny Martin, whose focus and clear vision has steered this biannual away from mainstream trends and explored personal style and inspiring women instead.
Issue No.6 back in 2012 caught my eye at the time and still has the ability to make me grin with that fantastic cover image of Angela Lansbury gleaming at me fresh-faced and bespectacled. It was a bold and welcome choice for a magazine cover and set up the rest of the issue with an air of greatness. With profiles including artist Tauba Auerbach and Selfridges creative director Alannah Weston as well as spreads using top-notch models Lara Stone and Yasmin Le Bon (swoon) among others, this issue in particular is rich with admiration for some truly dazzling women.
