Beginning as a black-and-white folded poster published sporadically, the magazine soon turned full colour, promoted with London club nights.
This reputation attracted cover stars such as Richard E. Grant (issue #11), Jarvis Cocker (issue #15) long-time collaborator Björk (#16) and Radiohead's Thom Yorke interviewing himself in issue #19.
Throughout the 1990s the magazine's format evolved. Among its many international magazine cover firsts Dazed counts Alicia Keys (June 2001, #78; on page 6), Jake Gyllenhaal (#98), Hilary Swank (#64), Eminem (#66) and Pharrell (#101).
The magazine has also supported social causes and encouraged debate with issues such as its 1998 Fashion-Able issue (#46) and 2004's South Africa issue (#115), the former dealing with perceptions of beauty and disability and the latter with the state of the country ten years after apartheid and the AIDS crisis throughout Africa. In 2006 Dazed & Confused joined forces with MySpace to support RED and World AIDS Day by encouraging the public to submit artwork and pledge their support to join the (RED) initiative.
