September Issues Coming Soon!

 The days may be sunny and warm but in the next few weeks a chill will settle in the evenings and thoughts will lead to sweater weather again. An end of summer ritual for many is spending time with the September issues. Traditionally, the September issues of fashion magazines, appearing in mid-August, have the greatest sales and the most significant heft of the year.  The record breaking edition has been September 2007’s American Vogue magazine at some 840 pages and weighing in at over 5 pounds. After a dramatic decrease in advertising last year, the advertisers are optimistically back and the editions will be back to their impressive September presence. Understandably, the cover model is an important decision for these issues. The Huffington Post recently released the list of fall faces for this 2010 year:

Vogue – Halle Berry

In Style – Hilary Swank

Elle – Julia Roberts

Harper’s Bazaar – Jennifer Aniston

Vanity Fair – Lady Gaga

For entertaining insight into the behind the scenes development of not only a magazine, but one of these iconic issues, view The September Issue. This documentary follows Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue, during the entire process. View the trailer here and then plan to hoist a big September issue onto your lap and snuggle up to watch the video on a cool late summer evening.
