Band 6,5 Answer by IELTS Test Taker
Well, the magazine I want to talk about today is Harper’s Bazaar. Harper’s Bazaar is an American women’s fashion magazine, first published in 1867. Aimed at members of the upper-middle and upper classes, Bazaar assembles photographers, artists, designers and writers to deliver perspectives into the world of fashion, beauty and popular culture on a monthly basis. Nowadays, people of different ages will buy this magazine if they are interested in fashion. As for me, I am a crazy fans of Harper’s Bazaar, and I always read the magazine once a month.
To be honest, I like the magazine very much, because I can learn a lot from it. What I want to mention firstly is that I can know about the latest fashion. The editors of the magazine will recommend the most fashionable way of wearing to the readers through the pictures of different pop stars around the world, from which I can get some inspiration about how to pick and match the clothes by myself. Secondly, I can learn about the culture of fashion from the magazine. Generally speaking, the world of fashion is mysterious. In the Harper’s Bazaar, I can know a lot about the fashion at home and abroad, and I gradually realize that the fashion in different countries is different due to various social and cultural backgrounds. In this case, I enjoy reading Harper’s Bazaar.

Since those students are very busy with the study, their teachers and parents will always book some learning magazines for them in order to consolidate what they have learned in the classroom. As for the young white-collars and middle-aged people, they prefer to read magazines for fun.

Since I insist on reading different kinds of newspapers every day, I suppose that most of the articles and news reports I have read are objective. Secondly, I think that most of the journalists will obey their principals. In my country, people need to take strict tests before becoming professional journalists, in this case, the journalist; know what they should do and what they should not do exactly.
