My favorite time of the year has come. It’s not even september and most of all the september issues are already out and available for sale. I can’t wait to be a millionaire and go out and buy ALL OF THEM -someday (one can dream you know?). So here’s the selection of what I’ve found until now. Let me know if you have any images available so we can add them to the list. Enjoy!
Good morning! We’re almost two weeks away from september and the fashion world is moving as quick as ever. September is not only the month for the special edition issues, but the beginning of the fashion year. The best photographers, creative directors, designers, editors and editorial assistants plus a whole staff come together for the most important, and probably thickest issue of the whole year.
As they say… “The early bird catches the worm“, and it totally applies when the first september issues are out. One of the first ones to come out? Japan of course, and my favorite cover until now. Cara Delevingne is the chosen one, and if you take a sneak peek into basically everything related to fashion, her picture is always there. The other main covers include Jennifer Lawrence for Vogue USA, Blake Lively for Lucky Magazine, Princess Di for Vanity Fair USA, Sarah Jessica Parker for Harpers Bazaar USA, Kate Upton for Elle USA, Jennifer Aniston for Glamour USA and Zooey Deschanel for Marie-Claire USA. I can’t wait to have all of these magazines in my hand!
Have a great day!!!
Remember the pictures that you once saw of the first supermodels and the pictures of women who were considered beautiful without being skinny or in the worst of cases, a suggestion of anorexia profiles? Cindy Crawford and Marilyn Monroe were some of the few names and faces that were converted into fame after being photographed and featured on several recognized magazines and ads published through all around the world. The idea of skinny wasn’t as supported as it is today, until Twiggy came in featuring a skinny, sweet and European profile into the fashion world. The fact that the skinny type of human became a stereotype to follow created some controversy and problems through all around the world. It caused trouble yes, but it didn’t stop and it even grew stronger.
Thankfully, today, in 2013, there was finally a model agency, Star Models from Brazil that spoke out about this issue, creating an ad campaign called “You Are NOT a Sketch!” Only the image speaks by itself and the newest and current generations with access to the Internet medias will be able to see how the fashion sketches are NOT an example to follow as a role model. Until now the impact has been reflected and discussed all over the Social Media Portals (SMP), and this is why I found about the ad. But, from my point of view, I don’t think and I don’t know if this is related directly to the ad, but the latest cover of Vogue Magazine US features one of the latest supermodels in the industry, Kate Upton, suggesting a healthy model based on natural curves and an incredible look-a-like appearance to Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly. The June Issue comes out May 21st. Hopefully the main article featured on the magazine mentions a change on the model body’s perspective.
