Cover Wars : Here’s Why September is the January of Fashion
September is the month for fashion magazines. When you flip through the glossies, you can almost feel the blood, sweat and tears shed to bring the magic together. All strings are pulled to get the hottest designers for exclusives, photographers and stylists for insanely elaborate editorial shoots and the most powerful stars to grace front covers. It’s also the month to find out who reigns the industry.
While international editions are out weeks before September creeps up, Indian magazines take their sweet time to make it to the newsstands. Here’s this year’s line-up of the top 5 September covers of 2014:
5. Harper’s Bazaar US
Under the care of their Global Fashion Director, Carine Roitfeld, Bazaar is now pushing limits. Here’s how the iconic magazine decided to mingle the classiness of a Chanel suit with Lady Gaga’s vibrant personality.
4. Vogue India
We’re pretty certain that there was a tug of war for this one. India’s only Bollywood fashionista would’ve been on the hot list of every Indian glossy for their September covers. But as tradition goes, Vogue won!
3. Harper’s Bazaar Bride India
Bazaar Bride makes sure their Brides never wear red. The newest publication on Indian newsstands has established that they’re anything but a traditional Bridal magazine. It was a easy call to make, when the choice was between the dull cover of Harper’s Bazaar India and the fierceness of Bazaar Bride.
2. Teen Vogue
Teen Vogue roped in the Kardashian clans half-sister for their September issue. At the rate Kendall Jenner’s modelling career is picking up pace, we wouldn’t be surprised if she is chosen to be on the September cover of Vogue next year.
1. Vogue US
It’s the most influential magazine in the world. The fact that Anna Wintour approves is all that matters. Last year they chose Jennifer Lawrence, this year Vogue went for the most powerful supermodels of the moment. Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss bagged themselves the most coveted spot.
