Honored at the 75th Golden Globes with the Cecil B DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, Oprah received a standing ovation for her 15-minute acceptance speech which later prompted calls for Oprah to run for President.
“I want all of the girls watching here now to know, that a new day is on the horizon. And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say, 'Me too' again"
One inspirational woman, 1 cover 3 ways. What's not to love?
For its sweetness and simplicity this weeks' cover of the week is Goop. The second issue of Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop magazine also features her Fiancee Brad Falchuck (writer, director and producer most known for co-creating hit series Glee and American Horror Story). A joint venture with Conde Nast, issue 2 features; the language of romance, new relationship energy, making intimacy work second time round with renown relationship author and speaker Esther Perel.

There's strong support out there for modern magazine publishers who rally the kindness of strangers to make their magazine launch a reality. I randomly stumbled across this new magazine - Modern Huntsman, via an image search. What caught my eye was the clean design rather than the subject matter - not being a hunter myself. Views on hunting aside, Modern Huntsman has generated over USD$100K in support for their new venture in a 45 day campaign and with a bi annual frequency, they should more than cover their bases.
I just love aerial photography, so cover of the week goes to Another Escape Issue 9 for this intriguing cover which offers a totally different perspective.
Adding this to my holiday movie list...
"Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light."
Of course it's not the first time Meryl Streep has played a strong woman in media - who could forget her flawless performance in The Devil Wears Prada?
