Glamour’s October 2022 issue is now available. Titled the ‘Feel Good’ issue, this month’s edition of Glamour SA is all about ending off the year on a high note.
In proud partnership with Platoon, our October issue profiles female musical forces who are making waves in South Africa and abroad.
As usual, we tackle cutting-edge, controversial, and informative topics to keep you in the loop, while our beauty and fashion sections are packed with information and inspiration to get you ready for the warmer months ahead.
Here are 5 reasons you need to buy the issue:
Our cover star this month is the award-winning singer-songwriter Asansa ‘Msaki’ Lusaseni. Her critically-acclaimed sophomore album, Platinum Heart, has earned her two 2022 South African Music Awards for Best Female of the Year and Best Contemporary Album. Safe to say her career’s been on the rise this year but she’s so much more than just a musician. In our cover story, Msaki opens up about being a multi-disciplinary artist, social activism, and the true meaning of success.
October is Cancer Awareness Month and we’re sharing the easy two-step method for self-checking your breasts and potentially prolonging your life. We also look at the sensitive dynamic of blended families, the controversy around women athelete’s bodies, unpack manifestation and delve into the world of lab-grown diamonds.
Our FEEL section looks at the biggest beauty influences on TikTok right now, the 411 on Botox for beginners, the best sun-protecting products, and a deep-dive into the use of the ethnic hairstyles as a form of cultural artwork, with hairstylist Janice Mascarenhas.
Our fashion pages are packed with inspiration for the Spring/Summer season. From the viral cut-out trend to statement suits and pleats, we’ve got your shopping guide covered. We also profile jewellery designer Kirsten Goss who shares her thoughts on the future of African jewellery, and take a look at fashion’s tumultuous relationship with women’s bodies.
In this issue, we’re spotlighting music that makes us feel good – as well as the artists behind them. In our LIVE section, we sit down with singer-songwriter Simphiwe Dana, who shares with us what we can expect from her upcoming album, MOYA, and how music is ingrained in her everyday life. We’ve also compiled a list of albums that were the backdrop to our lives this year. In addition, KZN-born singer Nobuhle talks to us about her distinct sound, collabs, and career journey.
