In the words of former US Vogue Creative Director Candy Pratts Price, September is the January of fashion. Not only do brands and magazines compete for the best stars, but it's also the month of New York Fashion week. Here, LUXE Models reveals the September 2016 fashion covers.
Vogue editor Anna Wintour is perhaps the most iconic person in the industry today. She is the ultimate trendsetter so when she does something, other fashion magazine editors follow. One of the most notable policies Anna has set up at Vogue is making September the magazine’s standout month.
Who What Wear reveals that R.J. Cutler’s 2009 documentary, The September Issue, was a landmark moment in fashion. Cutler’s piece chronicled the process of making Vogue’s iconic September issue, pushing this concept into the mainstream. Today major fashion publications, from Vogue and Elle to Marie Claire and Glamour compete every year to see who has the biggest September issue.
Vogue and Elle
We already knew what to expect from Vogue this year. LUXE Models previously wrote that model and Instagram star Kendall Jenner was fronting Vogue’s September 2016 issue. With Kendall rocking the modern Marie Antoinette look, complete with a pink ribbon-adorned, black and gold matador jack and matching trousers, Vogue made it clear that head-to-toe patterns are so hot right now!

We also knew ahead of time that Elle UK would release five September 2016 covers, including one featuring Zayn Malik. Elle US has now launched its 2016 September 2016 issue, which depicts Cara Delevingne on the front. Elle US opted to champion the sequin overload trend that’s really popular right now, dressing Cara in a purple sequined, disco diva style outfit that just screams fabulous!

E! Online recently featured a round-up of September 2016 covers. We have to give props to Glamour, whose cover featured mega-star fashion model Bella Hadid. Glamour’s cover, interestingly, wasn’t about the clothes, with Bella rocking a diamond-encrusted shirt and a red hoodie. The centrepiece was her bare-faced beauty look, showing that the minimal make-up trend has never been cooler.
Marie Claire, Allure, Cosmopolitan and InStlye went with celebrities over models. Championing surprise sequins, Sarah Jessica Parker appeared on Marie Claire, looking so chic in sequins and sheer. Allure chose actress Jessica Alba for their cover, adorning the actress in a delicately feminine pink vest top with cut-out patterns, illustrating that understated clothing is a major force in fashion right now.

Nobody could call the Cosmopolitan cover, which starred Gwen Stefani, understated. The Hollaback girl looked awesome, rocking a bright gold, precious stone-adorned, cut-out dress, going total bombshell. InStyle opted for a softer look, dressing its cover star, actress Kerry Washington, in autumn ingénue chic, making it clear that green and plum is set to be the colour pallet of the next season!
