This Fall, Models Took Over Magazine Covers

Can anyone deny the return of models to covers this fall? After a few spurts of appearances for the past couple of seasons, the September issues gave way to the flood of top-ranked faces for their leading trend stories. There was WSJ Magazine, celebrating a decade of issues with Inez and Vinoodh shot portraits of 10 of the biggest models in the game: Imaan, Andreea, Karlie, Adwoa, Rianne…the list goes on and on. Numéro joined the fray featuring Abbey Lee and Jamie Bochert in vampish couture from YSL, Dior, and Chanel. There was Irina for Vogue Espana, Halima and Gigi for CR Fashion Book, the triple-threat that was i-D, and Karolina Kurkova for the first issue of Vogue Czechoslovakia – and that’s just the surface. Check out the rest we spot this month below.

The shape of things to come, starring the season’s freshest faces. For T’s Women’s Fashion issue cover story, the models of the moment — cover star Adesuwa Aighewi (@adesuwa), @AnokYai, @AlyssaTraore and Sora Choi (@sola5532) — try on a mix of supersize streetwear and pumped-up couture details. T’s editor in chief @HanyaYanagihara writes: “Asian, black, Middle Eastern and Latina women aren’t gimmicks, and finally, their presence is becoming less a stunt and more a matter of fact. When I’m at the shows, I’m watching the faces as much as the outfits, and as soon as I saw our cover model, #AdesuwaAighewi, I knew I wanted her for this magazine. The Nigerian-Chinese-Thai-American daughter of scientists, she is clearly black and clearly Asian, clearly beautiful and clearly and inimitably herself. What more could fashion, or its admirers, hope for than this? A woman who belongs to several places at once; a woman who is entirely her own. That is the dream of belonging, because it is also the dream of self.” Click the link in our bio for a preview of #TWomensIssue, on newsstands inside the @nytimes this Sunday, August 19.

  1. No. The covers were successful in the eighties and nineties, because the models and photographers were interesting and with glamour, but now the covers with models do not work, it’s boring.

  2. Please, yes, bring the Supermodel Era back! I’m just tired and bored to see Actors on the cover of fashion magazines.
