More! was a fortnightly, later weekly, women's fashion magazine and associated website[2] published on Tuesdays in the United Kingdom by Bauer London Lifestyle.[3] It included celebrity news, high street fashion, and sex tips. The magazine was published fortnightly until September 2007, when it became a weekly publication[1] to compete with Look. More USA is still published.

On 22 April 2013, Bauer Media Group announced that it would cease publication of More! magazine and its website.[4] In its closing web comments, the publisher reported that continuing challenging economic conditions meant that the product was no longer viable.
