Just when you thought the most expensive magazine in the world was the phonebook-sized Fall issue of an imported European fashion mag, the United Arab Emirates one-ups everyone with a special edition of Kohl magazine–the UAE’s first monthly magazine geared towards Asian Women.
Kohl’s one-off issue is covered in an astounding 91 grams of gold, encrusted with a whopping 622 diamonds and valued at $10,000 USD. The pricey mag–which features cover girl, Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, who was voted No. 1 in FHM India’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll–will be auctioned to raise money for the Rashid Pediatric Therapy Centre.
Launched in March, Kohl’s editor Faarah Mehta says, “The magazine is stylish, smart and very relevant to the Asian culture. It sieves through all the information and tailors it to effortlessly fit the Asian woman. Kohl is about defining, representing and inspiring women from an Asian background, now living in the region.”
