The Biggest Month in Fashion Means the Biggest Stars
Summer may be soon coming to an end, but for fashion lovers, the changing of the seasons is met with great anticipation, as September is the month. Not only does New York Fashion Week begin, but the September issues of fashion magazines are all about the newest fall styles and 2016's most famous faces. It's typical for a September issue to be nearing 1000 pages and weighing more than my dog, so obviously they are jam-packed with chic clothes and great style tips (and also, plenty of advertisements).
While the issues themselves will be rolling out throughout the month, the cover stars and images have been released for the biggest fashion magazines! I know we say not to judge books by their covers, but...come on, there's a reason why so much effort goes into selecting cover girls and their styling, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on the September issue covers.
In no particular order, the September issue covers are:
|Gwen Stefani wearing Michael Kors, photographed by James White|
|Cara Delevingne in Saint Laurent, photographed by Terry Tsiolis|
|Bella Hadid, photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg|
|Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld|
|Kerry Washington, photographed by Thomas Whiteside|
|Sarah Jessica Parker in Gucci, photographed by Michelangelo di Battista|
|Tavi Gevinson, photographed by Inez and Vinoodh|
|Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton, photographed by Mario Testino|
|Kendall Jenner in Gucci, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott|
She looks decent enough in a Gucci matador suit, if not a bit dead-eyed (her go-to look, tbh) but I find the gray and gold coloring to be off putting (and similar to the color scheme of Beyoncé's 2015 cover).
Anyways, there are other celebrities that I think would be more deserving of a September issue this year. Rihanna, who's topping charts and embarking on an acting career, or, I don't know, the first female presidential nominee? I think fashion magazines have a great opportunity to make a statement with their September issues, and instead of rewarding the same select group of over-indulged celebrities, why not choose someone who matters?
