Congratulations on a job well done - I very much enjoy receiving More Magazine. I have had a subscription for a year now and I look forward to each issue. I am inspired by the articles and I enjoy the fashion as well. I love the diversity presented within the magazine. However, the covers offer less diversity than I would like to see. The covers of the magazine are the one aspect where I would love to see some change. I am an African American professional single mother of two. I would love to see more women of color featured on the covers of More. There has not been one woman of color featured on the More covers since I have been receiving the magazine. I have also spoken to other women of color who have been receiving the magazine longer than I have and they report there have been very few women of color featured over the last few years. I would love to see more women of color on the covers so that I can be inspired by them; just I have been by the women who have been featured since I started receiving the magazine.
Thank you for your consideration.
In recent years I have become an avid reader of MORE MAGAZINE, after being introduced to it by articles and covers of Mariska Hargitay. Of course, I bought it the day before it was supposed to be available at newsstands.
The straight reporting of history and events of Mariska life was done very well by Amanda Robb and informative.
BUT the unnecessary asides and comments by her were rude and demeaning and I am sure not welcome by the legions of her admirers and possibly herself as well...... In the first paragraph she mentions that she thought she had the wrong address because of a” beat-up Spider-Man scooter by the door.” “I ring the bell and a woman screams “just a minute” When the door finally opens I am greeted by a baby’s butt.” “She offers me her free hand. I take it but step back.” She describes Mariska in less than flattering adjectives. To me, Mariska is a down to earth person despite her fame and trophies and loves people. I will not recount the entire asides in the article. You are the Editor...please read it.
I don’t think any famous person would want Amanda Robb to interview them. I, certainly, will never read her writings again. Maybe the fact that she was not wined and dined and treated like visiting royalty, she decided to be witchy.

This is such a random email but after I saw the Girlfriend's Getaway sweepstakes in the magazine, I sat in the bathtub (yes your magazine is my bathtub reading material :-) ) and cried thinking about my Best Friend and the joy, fun, pain, and support we shared over the past 13 years.
I never knew what having true friends really meant until my late 20s, I was facing my second, yes second divorce when I met Tamara. She came to work, and one day she was walking down the hall in knee high boots, and a sweater dress. I was like a guy- wow who is that girl. Ha ha Then a few days later she asked me if I knew how to treat dry cracked heels, and this was the beginning of our tie that has continued to bind us through ups, downs, and sideways days.
We've shared so many things, wonderful and exciting that friends bring into your life. We also had the absolute most gut wrenching experience January 25th of this year when Tamara's 3 year old daughter died as a result of a genetic disorder, that we knew from birth would take her early in life, but no matter how prepared you think you are- guess what? You’re not. Larsen died on the operating table during a Heart Catheritization procedure to stretch her tiny blood vessels because they would not grow properly on their own. She had Alagille Syndrome, and her fight for survival was evident from day one. Larsen like her mother was full of life, joy, and passion. Supporting my friend through this loss has been at times so difficult but at the same time I've learned so much about her, myself, and the value of true friendship. Tamara's class, strength and perseverance through all of this is a testament to all women. She is beautiful, strong, resilient, and continues to be an amazing friend.
