Share A Secret Reviewed

Share A Secret Reviewed looks at the weekly Share A Secret column in Australia's biggest-selling magazine, Woman's Day. We at Gusworld love it, and we hope you will too. We don't give away the plot (that would be unfair and a possible breach of copyright); we just tell you what the headline is and describe the stunning artwork that goes with it.

Woman's Day dated October 21st, 1996

I BETRAYED MY VERY BEST FRIEND

She used her friend to carry a stolen jacket, but when they were caught, she only thought of her own reputation


Well, the change to a multi-sentence intro format didn't last very long, as you can see. Perhaps the Woman's Day editorial team were distracted by the dizzy excitement of actually having a real interview with Dannii Minogue, as opposed to fourth-hand hearsay, but they've reverted to classic form.

This reversion extends to slightly rewriting the story to fit the headline (as usual) and posing three models in a particularly dumb photo to illustrate the theme. Red features prominently in a checked shirt and as a detail on the bag, but we were particularly taken with the yellow shirt with green frond detailing. As the friend in question was actually present during the betrayal, though, we fail to see how it qualifies as a capital S Secret.
