CHEEK is a French magazine for women which talks about women for what they do, not for what they are. It was created by three journalists: Faustine Kopiejwski, Myriam Levain and Julia Tissier. The Cheek founders "with complementary personalities gathered at first around a glass of wine (perhaps several) and an idea that breathes utopia: create the ideal female which is not found in the existing press." The magazine aims at meeting real expectation of young women. It talks talk about beauty and fashion, but from a societal point of view.  The objective is to reconcile the background and the form, to make the beautiful and the intelligent.
