Models on the cover of American Vogue?! They said it couldn’t be done, but the new supers have taken the front page for September and provide a thrilling respite from the usual with a multi-girl cover filled with smiles and sparkling gowns. Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss lead the pack on the main cover looking exceptional in Mario Testino (Art Partner)’s upbeat cover shot. On the inside the next generation of beauties takes center stage with Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente, and Andreea Diaconu serving as Vogue’s latest lineup of stars. As with any high profile cover there is sure to be debate over who is and isn’t included in the line up – are you pleased with Vogue’s September selection, or are their other faces who you’d like to see on the cover as well? Sound off in the comments!

    Epic!American Vogue loves to give surprise once a while. This is so refreshing! Would be perfect to include Liu Wen but happy to see Fei Fei.

  2. Ben says:

    The stunning girl Feifei sun has made another history by showing up on the cover of US Vogue as the very frist asian model to ever make it to the cover of American Vogue.Good job,fantastic girl !

  3. Axel says:

    I wanted to see Lindsey Wixson and Jacquelyn Jablonski

  4. Joel says:

    Lovely for the ladies,but this really should have just been Joan and Karlie!

  5. Miguel says:

    Models on the cover of American Vogue? YES! I miss Julia Nobis, Grace Mahary, Xiao Wen Ju & Lexi Boling. Arizona? Now? No

  6. Not on the guest list says:

    I don’t have that much of a problem with the models chosen, with the exception of Cara and I questioned Andreea being on the cover; my main issue is that I’d have love that Meisel was the photographer and not Testino, and instead of a fold out just one main shot (e.g. Vogue Italia December 2013)

    BTW: My ideal cast would’ve been:
    Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Julia Nobis, Jourdan Dunn, Candice Huffine, Vanessa Axente, Amanda Murphy, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Lindsey Wixson and Issa Lish.

    I know is too Meisel-ish but these girls have been trailblazers in their own way.

  7. Caroline says:

    Love it, and very happy for the girls in the foldout too. I would love to see Vanessa on the actual cover one of these days.

  8. natasha says:

    Don’t agree w/some of the models on the cover. Cuogh Edie Cough Cara.

  9. Mia says:

    Although I’m happy to see models on the cover of American Vogue, this cover is an example of why it rarely happens. They all lack charisma and Testino’s terrible photography doesn’t help!


    I don’t understand why Imaan Hammam is on the cover! Maria Borgeus (however you spell her last name) or Binx would have made more sense! In fact, I would have preferred Jourdan Dunn, her Instagram following is much greater than most of these girls, which is why I don’t get “Insta-girls”?

  10. Mango says:

    It’s a beautiful cover and very good casting.

    How about Liu Wen, Daria Strokous, Karmen Pedaru, Toni Garrn, Suvi Koponen, Nadja Bender, Kati Nescher?

    There are lots of models who deserve it. At the end of the day you can’t choose everyone.

  11. Anna says:

    Daria Strokous instead of Andreea
    Liu Wen instead of Fei Fei (as much as I love her)
    Amanda Murphy instead of Vanessa
    Arizona in Cara’s place

  12. Anna says:

    And above all: shot by Meisel

  13. LD says:

    Missing Liu Wen. Not in place of Fei Fei though, both girls deserve to grace the cover together!!!

  14. Caroline says:

    Forgot to mention: why oh why isn’t Natasha Poly on this cover? And I agree, it should’ve shot by Meisel. But I won’t complain too much, at least it’s not Blake Lively or any other annoying “starlet” on the cover.

  15. Eyesuckink says:

    FREJA!!! Most defiantly

    I absolutely love this and I’m grateful that models are back on the cover of U.S. Vogue again. I strongly feel that models should be the face of fashion in the United States, not celebrities. Hopefully, this becomes a regular routine. But I’ve read the negativity on the net regarding this issue and I can understand why people get upset when their country’s models aren’t represented in the world’s biggest and most powerful fashion magazine. But the U.S. market is a very tough one; American Vogue will never be “avant grade” like some of the European mags. However, if the American market becomes accepting of models again, then we’ll see more models represented in U.S. Vogue. Model ruled the covers before, and it’s possible they will do it again. But if the online fashion crowd isn’t happy with the results, I can imagine the average American consumer isn’t going to be too thrilled, either.

  18. Lily says:

    It’s a great cover but with all that retouching they all look like Disney princesses.

  19. FakeNorwegian says:

    Wow, Cara and Joan must have been standing on apple boxes.

  20. chloe mortaud says:

    .Kayla Scott
    .Charlene Hogger
    .Julia Schneider
    .Iesha Hodges
    .Sasha Luss
    .Zuzu Tadeushuk
    .Meki Saldana

  21. Annabella says:

    Julia Nobis should have been included!

  22. Karen G. says:

    FINALLY!! took forever

  23. miu says:

    I like it but it would be better if they have included Julia Nobis

  24. Feby says:

    Finally, a cover with models!

    Some girls here are very interesting to be put.

    My line up would be:
    Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Constance Jablonski, Jourdan Dunn, Toni Garrn, Edie Campbell, Liu Wen, Cameron Russel

  25. manolob says:

    someone missed candice swane! amanda murphy! jourdab dunn she totally deserve to be here….boring cover
    remember that meisel cover from 10years ago? can you compare this and that cove r?
    that cast of daria, natalia,gisele, gemma, karen, hana, i still have that unforgetable issue…

  26. Richard says:

    It should have been
    Joan smalls
    Karlie Khloss
    Jourdan Dunn
    Natasha Poly

    They deserve it.

  27. cindy says:

    Liu Wen should be on the very front cover. Never been a fan of Karli and Joan though.

  28. GP says:

    We thought this is the best September cover of models! Go check out Italian Vogue with 50 yes 50 models from the super to Victoria’s Secret to the new comers!
