‘Real Women’ React to Their Historic Redbook Cover

For their biggest issue of the year, Hearst publication gets real.

The groundbreaking Redbook cover has arrived, digitally today and on newsstands August 18. The real fun is checking out the reactions of the six featured “Real Women” contest winners, via their respective style blogs, Instagram and so on. They’ve all been keeping a big secret for the past few months.


Marija Krosnjar, Sportanista:

Thank you to my family, thank you to my friends and most importantly, my readers. Without you this could not have been possible – I am blessed to have you all in my life.

Christine Buzan, Madame-Ostrich.com:

Shooting the cover with Chris Craymer was such an amazing experience. You may not know his name, but you definitely know his work— he shot the ads Dove is so famous for. The whole experience of working with the Redbook team was absolutely fantastic. I will be writing more in depth about it in a series of posts this week.

Psyche Southwell, Economy of Style:

Big thanks for your support! You’ve always helped me by visiting Economy of Style on the daily, making comments, and offering support. Now… you’ve helped me make it to the cover of Redbook magazine. Thanks so much. I really appreciate you.

Also featured on the cover are Nikki Frenney-Wiggins, Cassie Freeman and Jeniese Hosey. Congrats and a big thanks, from this media blog, for the cool, refreshing women’s magazine breeze.
