Say hello to the first Magazine cover with a 2017 date on it.
Felicity Jones is the cover girl for Glamour Magazine UK January 2017 issue and it looks promising.
I love this magazine cover. The up close shot is a beauty, and the hair and makeup looks amazing as well. I also like what she has on, it looks very colourful and pretty.
I have read excerpts of Felicity Jones’ interview on Glamour Website and I think this would be a fab read. Felicity chatted about her thoughts on feminism and equal pay, her Star Wars role and everything else in between.
Here are some quotes for your reading pleasure:
Felicity on… being a feminist:
“I’ve always been a feminist, and what I love in my work is being able to explore a full-sided woman and not patronise her. Particularly with Jyn, it’s such a rare opportunity to be able to play a female who’s not just thinking about romantic relationships.”
I like the fact that she is a feminist. Her interview sounds very honest.
Felicity on… equal pay:
“I want to be paid fairly for the work that I’m doing. That’s what every woman around the world wants. We want to be paid on parity with a man in a similar position. And I think it’s important to talk about it… It’s brave of those women to come forward and make a point about it. Now younger actresses will have a confidence in those discussions with their agents and be able to say, “Can we make sure that I’m being paid the right amount for the work that I’m doing?””
I would never understand why anyone would think to pay men more money over women for the same job just because they are men. It makes no sense to me but it happens. I like the fact that more women are speaking about this equality pay issue.
There is also a bonus special edition cover for January 2017, featuring Joe Wicks – social media health and fitness guru –
I really like this cover as well. I would love to read about building a multi-million pound business.
I like the fact that Glamour is raising the bar very high by starting 2017 with 2 amazing magazine covers. I can’t wait to see what the other British magazines would come with now.
What do you think of both covers? Will you be buying this issue? What are your thoughts on the equality pay issue?
