the most important month of the year

A List of Rumored September Cover Girls

Halle Berry.

September fall-fashion issues break in just a couple of months. It’s the biggest, most important issue of the year for fashion magazines, and therefore adds pressure to put a face on the cover that can really move issues off the stands. We’ve combed the papers, online fashion forums, and tapped our sources to compile lists of likely August and September cover girls. We’re showing you August because that helps you figure out who might not get another cover for September. Again, these are based on rumors, but likely, by our estimation. If rumors about Halle Berry landing Vogue’s September cover prove true, she will be the first black woman to grace the magazine’s September issue since Naomi Campbell in 1989, according to Fashionista.
