This week our December issue hits shelves countrywide. This issue stars Kerry Washington on the cover, and inside you’ll find great insights on how to prepare for the festive season, and a retrospective look at Marie Claire South Africa’s favourite moments over the years. On the 19th of October 2018, Associated Media Publishing announced that it has opted not to renew the publishing licence with the French owners of the brand. As a result, the December issue will be the last one printed under its banner.

In this collector’s edition, we round up all the wonderful women we celebrated this year and beyond. We take a walk down memory lane and show you our fashion director’s favourite looks over the years, and we share the rich history of Marie Claire.

From the team: it has been such an honour and a pleasure to create this December issue for you. Keep watching this page for online teasers and more content that is engaging, inspiring, empowering, provocative, entertaining, intriguing, real, emotional and open-minded.
