The most important issues of the year are finally here… and Kate Moss is sweeping the covers literally (5!)
ETA: two more
Sasha Pivovarova and Ash Stymest ph by Steven Meisel. Couture supplement cover: Rihanna ph by Steven Klein, that one is fierce.

Zhang Zi Yi. Funny, they have ‘The Black Issue’ every September, nice way to cue Fall/Winter? Chanel Iman took the honour last year.
Cate Blanchett in Balenciaga, Martin Grant and Alexander McQueen illustrated by David Downton. Love how vintage these covers look, Vogue Australia is celebrating their 50th Anniversary.
Always nice to see Coco, but the cover feels very Vogue Espana.
Margaryta Senchylo. I’m LOVING their recent covers, last month’s with Eden Clark is lovely as well, they have been using models who suddenly disappeared off the radar.
Karlie Kloss ph by David Sims, reprint from Vogue US July 09′
Lara Stone ph by Karl Lagerfeld, she is bagging two french covers for September, and two of the most influential french magazines! One thing that got me thinking, Lara is wearing Chanel couture Fall 2009, which was shown on the runways in early July… did Karl shot her in this right around that period. It’s good to have the designer as the photographer as well, no? Couture pieces straight off the runway to a magazine cover.
Alana Zimmer, words got out that she’s just chopped all her long locks off? Can’t wait to see her new look.
Natalie Portman. Gorgeous.
Kate Moss in Prada ph by Mert & Marcus.
Pretty young things — Chanel Iman, Sessilee Lopez, Jourdan Dunn and Arlenis Sosa. Pretty epic.
Dazed & Confused
Kristen Stewart ph by David Sherry.
