When you're a designer you have to compartmentalise yourself ever so slightly into creating things in a certain way. They say you should never restrict how you go about things too much, but I think you need to give your work focus and make sure it goes in a certain direction, and that should be much the same in terms of the magazine you choose to read as well. For me, Elle Decoration takes design as being serene, classy, complete, warm and feminine. It's a beautiful magazine that works so hard to offer new ideas to readers, and I really appreciate that in a title.
Cath Kidston, Renowned designer
I love keeping up to date with what's going on and I find titles like Prima really great for lifestyle and decorating tips. I'm always on the go, so I want a title that I can read in bits. I'm afraid the days of absorbing some long drawn-out piece are over for me! Glossy, honest, genuine - Prima would be my first choice for the fact it's got enough in there to last me the week!
Ruth Langsford, This Morning host
I like Cosmopolitan and will pick it up whenever there's a new issue out. I'm only 24 and I realise most people reading the magazine are older than me, but I like the fashion elements and, well, it makes me feel grown up reading it! I'm like most people - fascinated by who's wearing what. I like to think I'm wearing things that make me look like I know about fashion - even though I don't really! Cosmo has a more sophisticated tone and some really stylish ideas, so that works well for me.
Jorgie Porter, Hollyoaks Actress
I like to brush up on fashion. I'm known for my jackets and sometimes clothing that's a bit different, so I'll always look out for Esquire to see what's going to be hot around town. I'm not sure striped blazers are really designed for what I put them through when crowd-surfing, but that's rock 'n' roll. Esquire is a top read - not too snotty, yet big on style and nicely written in a way that makes you smile. Like an 'in gag'.
Ricky Wilson, Lead singer of Kaiser Chiefs
I love GH, because it has a nice feel and weight about it and always looks good. I love the recipes - it's just a pity I'm the worst cook in the world!
Judi Dench, Britain's best-loved actress
II was a slave to the gym for so many months leading up to the filming of Southpaw. I basically lived and worked like a boxer – every single day. And to stay motivated I needed to read how the experts did it, so Men’s Health really kept me pumped and energetic, even at times when I felt I couldn’t go any further.
Jake Gyllenhall, Hollywood Actor
Red has always been the go-to fashion, style and current affairs title for me. It's brave, uplifting and tackles some of the key things that matter to the modern woman. Really though, more than anything else, it's about being inspired by what's in front of you. The influences in Red come from the UK and overseas, but are presented in a way that make you want to go out and try new looks, sample new colours and fashions, and really explore fashion and style, no matter what the season.
