UNITED STATES —¬† The¬†September 2021¬†issues are now arriving on the Internet and newsstands around the globe. Magazines are bringing their A-game with eye-catching covers and statement-making editorials. Some issues even weigh more than a pound and has over hundreds of pages.

The¬†September¬†issue is the most important and biggest issue of the year for fashion publications.¬†Candy Pratts Price¬†once said, ‚ÄúSeptember is the January in fashion.‚Ä̬†September‚Äôs fall fashion issues hold a lot of weight and most luxury houses spend the most amount of advertising dollars in this particular issue. The September issue always sets the tone for the next year in fashion and culture.

If you’re a magazine lover, chances are you know how important the September issue is. A lot of time and hard work goes into it. There was a point in time, when you barely saw a woman of color on the September issue.

It used to be hard for Black and Brown women to get onto covers of magazines because “they did not sell“. Clearly, that has been proven a myth. Now more and more women of color are on the cover of mainstream magazines, including¬†September¬†issues. And this is beyond epic.

Let us not forget 2015, when we saw the first surge of women of color on September issues.

Anna Wintour‘s highly anticipated September 2021 issue of Vogue enlisted eight diverse models for its cover. The models were lensed by Ethan James Green in an office party set.

The magazine described the eight models as¬†“distinctively transfixing,” as they shimmy around the Cond√© Nast cubicles in the latest celebratory designer ensembles. For this issue, Kaia Gerber¬†dressed in a tight¬†Tom Ford mini dress, Lola Leon in a slinky, shimmery Michael Kors Collection look, Anok Yai¬†in a glamorous Ralph Lauren¬†Collection gown, Bella Hadid¬†poses in a sequined¬†Christopher John Rogers creation, Yumi Nu dons a crimson, body-skimming Mara Hoffman¬†midi dress, Sherry Shi wears a Proenza Schouler suit, Precious Lee¬†in¬†Carolina Herrera¬†and¬†Ariel Nicholson in Christopher John.

Styling was courtesy of Gabriella Karefa-Johnson and Tonne Goodman.

This issue also marks the most extensive global content collaboration for Vogue since Condé Nast merged its international and U.S. branches and promoted Anna Wintour as its global head. Readers across the world will see a different model or celebrity on newsstands this month, but they will find many of the same images and profiles inside, including a feature spotlighting emerging designers and another on Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons.
