Stylist launches special edition made by the UK’s top MPs to mark milestone 300th issue


The writers in this week's issue are very different, albeit very familiar. 

Stylist is marking its 300th issue this week with a special edition made by the country’s top MPs.

Now a birthday tradition for Stylist, this is the third time the magazine has handed the editorial pages over to a different group of people, having marked the 100th edition with an issue made by readers and the 200th with celebrities.

The ambitious 300th issue project brings together a cross-party spectrum of MPs and leaders to create an eye-opening collection of features, sharing parts of their lives the public don’t normally see. 

Contributions include:

Prime Minister David Cameron on his work/life balance
Chancellor George Osborne choosing five women who have achieved huge success in the world of science and engineering
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn picking his Most Desired object - a bike
Diane Abbott on her history of hairstyles
Yvette Cooper on travel
Caroline Lucas choosing her literary heroines
Liz Truss shares - and bakes - her favourite recipe
Stella Creasy turning the tables on Caitlin Moran by making her the subject of a sit-down interview

As well as offering an alternative and compelling insight into the lives of the people who run the country, the 300th issue of Stylist also sees each MP including a ‘Pledge to Women’. This is an opportunity for them to spell out the policies and ideas that affect women that they will be focussing on over the next year.

Importantly, this special edition of Stylist, which is published on Wednesday 13 January, also represents one of the few times politicians from across the political spectrum have combined to create something special for those they represent.

Commenting on the 300th edition of Stylist, editor Lisa Smosarski said, "This is the first time MPs and leaders from all parties have come together to create a magazine and the result is an edition of Stylist like no other."

"It may not come as a surprise to learn that putting the 300th issue together this has not been an easy process, but we’ve been touched by the spirit, enthusiasm and dedication of all MPs who took time out of their schedules to create something special for our readers.”
