Help me find this awesome-looking women's magazine I saw in a coffee shop in New York

Google was no help to me. I'm looking for a large-format women's magazine I saw once in a coffee shop. It had a one-word title (verve??) and seemed to be aimed at a cooler/older/artier demographic. This is all really vague, sorry. It may not even have been a women's magazine, but it the issue I saw had a woman on the cover and it seemed to have a lot of articles about women creators, though it did not seem to have an excplicitly feminist bent.

Which coffee shop did you see it at? If you remember its name, you could call them and ask if they recognize it based on your description.

There is a free magazine in Asheville called Verve and it is aimed at women. Maybe someone picked it up and brought it back? Their slogan is Covering Asheville's most fascinating women.

I saw a few copies of Frankie magazine at a salon last weekend. Woman-centric, cool, arty. The ones at the salon were not large-format, though.

W Magazine? It's large-format, definitely cool and artsy, etc.

Well, I think it's The Gentlewoman, but I'm not 100% sure. Nonetheless, these answers are great! Frankie looks really cool!

In fact, I think the issue with Angela Lansbury on the cover may have been the one I saw at the coffee shop. It was a year or two ago and half-remembered; one of those things I filed away mentally at the time, sure I would remember it later. Thanks again!

Verily? It's relatively new.
