FEMALE Magazine Takes On The #10YearChallenge | From The Archive

That’s right, we’re jumping on the bandwagon!

One of the great things about magazines is that they work as a perfect time capsule of any period of history. What were the trends of the time, what issues were occupying our thoughts, who were the hottest celebrities back then, and what are they up to now?

When the #10YearChallenge hit our feeds, we knew we wanted to take part as well! So we dove into our archive of magazines, pulled out the January 2009 issue, and put it next to the January 2019 issue to see how FEMALE changed over the past decade.

Take a closer look!

In 2009, our cover girl was host and actress Daphne Iking. Since then, Daphne has gone on to do all sorts of inspiring things– including hosting one of our favourite TV indulgences, Say Yes To The Dress!

Ten years later, and we have another empowering, inspiring woman on our cover: Liv Lo! While the theme of the issue has changed from budget to reinvention, one thing remains the same: the astrology forecast of the year! Our logo has seen a revamp as well. This year also marks our 45th year of publication, so it’s a year of celebration!

Here’s to another decade and more!
