In all her years as the queen of all media, Oprah Winfrey has shared a life’s worth of life lessons, whether whispering or screaming them, and now she is in a Vogue feature story, still forcing us to learn.
Jennifer Lawrence is on the cover of Vogue’s September issue not once but four times, as a part of their 125th anniversary celebration. She’s also the subject of a profile that, depending on your perspective, either lays bare Lawrence’s carefully-honed ability to perform relatability, or the fixation on that concept…
Remember back in April, when Vogue created whole special issue for Kendall Jenner because she’s a mILLeNiAL on the iNt3rN3T but it also seemed like they just didn’t want to give her a real cover because she has dead eyes? Well, we were wrong! Vogue has cashed in every chip, and Kendall Jenner is on its September issue.
If you haven’t already noticed, black women are sort of killing it this September. Kerry Washington, Ciara, Beyoncé and Serena Williams are all gracing the September issue covers of major magazines. The last time this happened was probably never.
After the September issue of Vogue leaked on Friday, the magazine has now posted shots of the expandable cover on their Instagram account, which is fitting, given that the cover line is "The Instagirls! Models of the moment in the clothes of the season."
Photos of Vogue's September issue have slithered onto the Internet, and, surprisingly, the biggest cover of the year features three models (Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss).
If you bought everything September's issue of Harper's Baazar told you to, you'd be out almost half a million dollars. That's according to HuffPost Style, which has the average cost of each item in the big paper monstrosities like Vogue, Marie Claire and Lucky, as well as totals for all that stuff. Woof.
At 235 pages, the September issue of Lucky magazine is not as weighty as some other publications (Vogue is 902 pages, and we'll deal with that later), but fashion fiends should be pleased with the upbeat direction new editor-in-chief Eva Chen is taking.
This clip from the September Issue's DVD bonus footage perhaps explains why Vogue cover lies are always so, well, daft. They're made up by a bunch of women who sit around, tossing out cliché after cliché, until something sticks.
