Add another read to your blog roll: Vogue UK is finally in the mix. We love the site for lots of news coming out of Europe, and of course we're known fans of what EIC Alexandra Shulman does with the magazine each month. It's always a great read.

And at the very least we'll reserve judgment for a bit.
