After 46 iconic years, Dolly Magazine has come to an end.
Now, one of its most iconic editors, Lisa Wilkinson, has paid tribute to the bible that brought joy and confidence to many an Aussie teen’s life.
“A magazine that for 46 years was a bible to so many generations of young Aussie women – including yours truly,” Wilkinson wrote alongside an image of the magazine’s July 1983 cover – one The Today Show host later pointed out was “one of our biggest sellers during my time as editor.”
"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," she continued.
"Vale Dolly. So many of us will never forget you."
