SMU Look, SMU’s fashion magazine is in its second year of publication and Editor-in-Chief Sam Klaassen is excited to see where the fashion and beauty publication is headed. SMU Look, SMU’s New Fashion Magazine SMU Look is a student-led publication focusing on fashion and beauty. Additional sections are dedicated to home, culture and food. Despite being in circulation for only a little over a year, SMU’s new fashion magazine is a finalist for the Magazine Pacemaker Award from the Associated Collegiate Press.

It often features fashion-savvy students, Dallas events and fashionable ensembles at SMU events — such as the campus’ signature pre-football game “Boulevard.” “The Style File” is a section featuring SMU alumni interviews. “A lot of other colleges have fashion magazines, and it was almost kind of strange that SMU didn’t,” said Sam Klaassen, editor-in-chief of SMU Look. “So we started SMU Look.”
