When Arena launched eleven years ago it was the only British general interest magazine for men; now, in the wake of Arena's pioneering launch, there are dozens of men's magazines - or rather boys' magazines. Sorry lads, but Arena is Britain's hippest magazine for men. Launched in 1986, it has often been copied, but never bettered. Arena features the finest fashion pages, the most incisive writers, and the very sharpest design. Full of award- winning photography and first-class journalism, its mission is to provide an entertaining, memorable and thought-provoking mix of informed writing and arresting contemporary images, encompassing everything from Liz Hurley to Laverne & Shirley. Whether football fan, design buff, or both, all the editors of Arena hope you like what it has to offer.

GQ Active

GQ Active, launched earlier this year, has fast established itself as the health, sport and fitness magazine which looks after number one. It's all about achieving rather than surviving. Sport, health, fitness, sex, fashion, life - GQ Active is the magazine that runs on natural adrenalin. Fitness plans to guarantee results, work-out routines from the sports stars, health advise and features, mens grooming - GQ Active provides all these, with style. Performance clothing, equipment, gym of the month, extreme sports for those who crave that little bit more, plus sports writing with attitude. GQ Active will help you push yourself to the outer limits.

The October issue of Tatler catches up with Christie Brinkley, the cover girl's cover girl, and goes inside her Hamptons home. The magazine tracks down the Hollywood Britpack, while Henry Dent-Brocklehurst and fiancee Lili Maltese dress up in butter-soft, sharp-cut, sexy and sleek leather. Plus, is your sofa more a hit-list than It-list - Tatler assesses the British designers who will help your house look hip, and a tribute to Sir James Goldsmith, dynamic tycoon, dynastic family man and would- be statesman, through the eyes of his daughter Isabel.

October sees the 100th issue of GQ and celebrates in style with Paul Whitehouse. David Bowie dons Paul Smith, Reservoir Dog Michael Marsden explains how Hollywood's leading hound is creating a new breed of trouble, and Tyra Banks goes back to basics. Plus, Paul Newman's motor-racing passion, the City addicts chasing the dragon and promotion, and the best blather from the last 100 issues of GQ.

The Face

The team behind Trainspotting are back with a fine romance. The Face goes on the set of A Life Less Ordinary in Utah, and has a heart-to-heart with the film's stars, Ewan Macgregor and Cameron Diaz. Plus: Embrace, the rising British rock band; Hiromix, the 20-year-old Japanese schoolgirl whose titillating pics of her friends is causing a revolution; Lil' Kim; board art; John Leguizamo; Photek; drag kings; and an exclusive interview with the Dalai Lama. Sort of...

The health, fitness and sport magazine for men, brings the reader the ultimate eat yourself sexy plan. David Coulthard reveals his hi-tech work-out which is as advanced as the McLaren he drives. Plus, ways you can improve your running technique, the GQ Active trainer top ten, and how to take on the Gladiators. The October issue of GQ Active comes with a special edition 256-page guide to Daring Days Out in the UK.


Exclusive interview with, and sensational photographs of Elizabeth Hurley, the original posh spice. The women who wore The Dress tells Arena the fame game isn't funny anymore. Plus: climbing Everest the hard way; Teddy Sheringham's new boots and panties; what they don't teach you at SAS school; how to tell if you've got a small penis; and the problems with Naomi Campbell, Jimmy McGovern and the Cherokee Jeep.

Vanity Fair features a special tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales, looking back over her last summer, whether flying to Bosnia to crusade against land mines or finding romance on the Riviera. The decade-long partnership of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana is explored, the affinity of Weegee, the 1940s crime photographer, for the underbelly of New York is examined, and with virtually every icon of the British stage appearing in an eight-hour, $13m television adaptation of A Dance to the Music of Time, Vanity Fair predicts a revival of Anthony Powell's masterwork.
