Sports is out! Fall is in! The conclusion of the London 2012 Olympic Games brings us to the onslaught of ultra thick September issues and no prizes for guessing who is the winner here. The Vogue US September 2012 issue is literally the biggest issue yet with 916 pages, surpassing the previous world record held by the Vogue US September issue of 2007 by a whooping 76 pages!
How apt as well, that Vogue celebrates its 120th anniversary this very month; yes the magazine was founded in September of 1892. Out of all the fashion publications out there, –at the top of my head– only Harper’s Bazaar can claim an earlier birth date.
Lady Gaga graces the cover for the second time in Marc Jacobs but the highlight for me has got to be The Vogue 120: The Stylish Singers, Designers, Actors, Models, and More (Under 45) of the Moment. Hitting all the nails on the head, this list is essentially a names-you-need-to-know list. Sadly, not all of them made it to the editorial; imagine if they all did!
