This year’s September issue of Vogue is the biggest issue they have ever printed. It holds more than 460 pages, showcasing autumn’s most inventive and desirable embellishments.
If you’re going to buy Vogue, this is the addition you want. As our favourite fashion TV persona, Carrie Bradshaw, once famously quotes in an episode of Sex and The City, “When I first moved to New York and I was totally broke, sometimes I bought Vogue instead of dinner. I found it fed me more.” Although slightly to the extreme,we fully understand the devoted affection.
One of the most popular noted covers of Vogue has to be of the ubiquitous supermodel, Kate Moss. Vogue crowned Moss as, “relentlessly captivating,” “maddeningly, elusively glamorous,”and, of course, “iconic.”
No wonder the supermodel has covered the magazine 34 times. Vogue’s scheme seems to be about discovering who is popular and selling the most copies, then have said star on the cover as much as possible.
This is why model Cara Delevingne is quickly following Moss’s fashion credentials in the Vogue department. She has covered the magazine a total of 3 times in the last 18 months. One thing is for certain, she truly does have the formula to command and consume the page, much in the manner and magic of Moss.
Delevingne is photographed by Mario Testino in new season Nicolas Ghesquiere’s Louis Vuitton collection, with her slight frame and Sixties ingÃƒ©nue style. She looks deliciously chic, but we can’t help but think we have noticed this look before. Maybe because she dons the same 60’s look exactly in America’s July edition of Vogue?
Vogue has clearly reused the same photo shoot for the September edition. It is not uncommon for huge magazines to reuse images from time to time. Yet, it does strike us as odd that Vogue, the most influential fashion magazine in history, has simply reused an older photo shoot for the cover of the most important edition of the year.
