Pearl, Bonang, Minnie & many more - Here's my list of the 10 Best South African Magazine Covers of 2015

This was so hard to narrow down.

South African Magazines had some pretty amazing covers this year. While some still have a long ways to go in terms of diversity  (hello Marie Claire SA) they were still some dope covers to choose from. The criteria I used is not based on sales but rather how "enticing" the cover looked to me, did it make me want to buy the issue? Was the layout simple and clean? Did I learn more about the subject matter after reading the issue? All it's all very subjective, so after you look through the list please let me know if I left anyone off that should have been included.

Let's a take a stroll down memory lane and take a look at some of my FAVORITE covers for the year 2015. In no particular order, here we go...

1. Elle Magazine South Africa August 2015

Elle Magazine really impressed me this year. I loved all the #BlackGirlMagic on their covers. Just beautiful, I hope to see more next year.

5. Women's Health Magazine South Africa November 2015

TV Personality Bonang Matheba brought the heat in this yellow swimsuit. And look at the pics inside the mag....
