NOOOO! Aussies around the country are feeling all the emotions as Dolly announces they are the latest magazine to call it quits amidst the digital age.
Aaah Dolly, the magazine that gave us Miranda Kerr, fashion inspo, teen dramzz advice, posters of Adam Brody and of course the famous ‘sealed section’ Dolly Doctor.
After over 40 years in stores, Bauer Media has announced that Dolly will now run solely as an online enterprise.
Bauer CEO, Nick Chan had stated:
“Dolly has played a part in the lives of many Australians over the years, which is why we’re delighted its outstanding content continues but now, exclusively, on the channels today’s teens prefer to interact with most.”
Lisa Wilkinson has hit us right in the feels with her farewell post:
"#RIPDolly. A magazine that for 46 years was a bible to so many generations of young Aussie women - including yours truly.
I collected every single issue when I was in high school devouring the fashion, the pop stars, the big sisterly advice and of course, the iconic Dolly Doctor. As the old jingle went, Dolly was a girl like me.
To then get my first job there was a joy I'll never forget...and I went to on spend seven years there - five of them as editor.
It launched the careers of so many - journalists, editors, stylists, graphic designers, and brilliant photographers like @grahamshearer and of course models who have gone on to become household names like @mirandakerr and as you can see here, a very young and at that point, completely unknown, #NicoleKidman.
This was July 1983, and the issue was one of our biggest sellers during my time as editor.
Such sweet memories.
So many of us will never forget you."
And she’s not the only one…
The last issue will be released on December 5 and feature three special edition covers each with a member of Aussie band, In Stereo.
