Model Covers

Vogue September & Bazaar September Issues

Leave it to the English editions to put models on their September issue covers– Bravo! Daria and Natalia look absolutely gorgeous. I much prefer to see fashion on a model than a celebrity.

  • Hear hear! Vogue has had about 5 consecutive model covers if I’m not mistaken…

  • I agree. And it seems to alway be one of the same dozen or so celebrities!

    PaulaAugust 4th, 2013  8:52 AM

     
  • I agree! We get enough Hollywood in the trash mags. Keep them there where they belong

  • I agree too. So refreshing. And more so, living in Australia, I loved the fresh take of a coloured leather biker jacket. So sick of the ubiquitous black one doing the rounds. It is so feminine looking. Plus the nose ring gives it an unexpected edge. And Natalia…. she will always look good. Magazine cover or not!

  • You are so right. I love Vogue but get tired of the celebrity covers. And it’s always the same celebrities.

  • I love the purity of it…..it keeps whatever baggage the celebrity brings off the cover….models provide a look at beauty and fashion – simply……

  • Totally agree! I am so over the celebrity on fashion magazine covers.

    EmilyAugust 4th, 2013  10:40 AM

     
  • I agree as well. Let’s hope this starts a trend away from Hollywood!

    LynnAugust 4th, 2013  10:56 AM

     
  • Yes, I’m not a celebrity hound and have missed the model covers so!

    AnnAugust 4th, 2013  11:36 AM

     
  • I could not agree more!

    CatherineAugust 4th, 2013  11:40 AM

     
  • I have been saying this for years. I would love to see a return of models on the covers of fashion magazines.

  • AGREE 100%!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cari BeckerAugust 4th, 2013  1:31 PM

     
  • The model is meant to be anonymous, secondary to the look or the style presented.
    Celebrities glory in their own existence; everything else is secondary to them. Counter-productive for these magazines, I think. Not to mention boring for the
    rest of us…

    lkaAugust 4th, 2013  1:40 PM

     
  • I agree! I love seeing models!

    AnnieAugust 4th, 2013  2:44 PM

     
  • Bravo!! Maybe the celebrity tide is turning,,,,,long overdue!
    Thanks so much for making us aware 🙂

    JaneAugust 4th, 2013  6:04 PM

     
  • Totally agree. I love seeing models on magazine covers.

  • Is this Balenciaga leather jacket in orange ?

    miaAugust 4th, 2013  10:36 PM

     
  • When will media get the fact modern women aren’t star struck and we are the “stars” of our own lives. We use these magazines to advance ourselves, not some Hollywood star.

    AprilAugust 4th, 2013  11:12 PM

     
  • My sentiments exactly! No more celebrities as models!

    StacyAugust 5th, 2013  11:34 AM

     
  • Indeed — and I absolutely love when Daria Werbowy is featured. She can be such a chameleon!

  • Same here; LOVE Vogue US and still am a subscriber but the celebs on the covers are driving me crazy and are most of the time very boring and kind of “cheap” (Katy Perry? Rihanna? WTF?); I’m almost ashamed sometimes to carry that Vogue around! It would be nice to actually be able to differentiate the Us Weekly cover from the Vogue one, right? Nothing in common with French Vogue covers, which I find so much edgier and a lot less “polished”; Ms. Wintour must be doing something right, granted, but I CANNOT understand the covers she comes up with. Doesn’t make sense to me.

  • I can remember being on a magazine when they started using celebrities on the cover – I didn’t like it then & I’m not that keen now. The latest cover of British Vogue is fantastic. One of my favourites this year.

  • As if to prove your point, Sarah Jessica Parker on September issue of harpers bazaar! Haven’t we seen her on some cover recently? Wouldn’t it be great to see a new face? Even a new actress would be better!

    PaulaAugust 6th, 2013  10:53 AM

     
  • So agree with you :))))) xxx

    SusannahAugust 6th, 2013  11:42 AM

     
  • Totally agree!

  • i hear that jennifer lawrence will be on the cover of vogue us. if so, y a w n. i really was hoping for this model trend to take hold here. i like jennifer lawrence. definitely a good actress, very pretty and an engaging character. but not inherently stylish. at all. i think AW missed an opportunity to herald a return to focusing on ‘fashion, capitol F’, by not putting a strong model on the september cover. what with fashion week and fashion night out all happening in september, having a real ‘fashion professional’, like a model, on the cover would have set a new tone for the industry. a new ‘excitement’ for, y’know, the clothes. please, isn’t time to just leave the celebrity covers to vanity fair?
