Incredible stories on and alongside the red carpet

Story offers not one but two magazines: Story and Storywood.

Story is the best source for incredible stories that occur in Flanders on and alongside the red carpet. The magazine’s greatest strength? It keeps its readers informed of the hottest news items related to showbiz and royalty every week. It does this in a positive and recognisable manner, accessible for everyone. This infotainment topper offers Hollywood news and some extra relaxation in the form of puzzles and crosswords. Storywood, the weekly supplement, offers incredible stories from Hollywood and pays attention to the latest trends in the area of fashion, beauty and healthy life.
