Lady Gaga September Harper's Bazaar

The U.S. edition of Harper’s Bazaar is having triple the fun with three separate newsstand covers for its September issue. Lady Gaga, Penélope Cruz and Linda Evangelista grace their own covers, styled by Harper’s Bazaar global fashion director Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Sebastian Faena.

The theme for the September issue is “Icons,” and Roitfeld linked the 19 women she styled for the issue by incorporating fishnets into each outfit. Lady Gaga is ladylike yet edgy in a pink tweed Chanel skirt, jacket, bra and fedora paired with black fishnet tights. Penélope Cruz is a screen siren in a form-fitting black Dior dress and fishnet top, and Linda Evangelista proves that she deserves the title of  iconic model by making a top fashioned out of twisted Commes des Garçons knits look chic.

Additional icons featured inside the issue include Lara Stone, Gigi Hadid, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Brooke Shields. The full portfolio will appear in all 30 editions of Harper’s Bazaar, and can be seen when the issue hits newsstands August 19.

Vogue US and Vogue UK are in Cahoots?

CaraVogueUK

Well of course they work together, they are family. But the September issue of Vogue UK has got us asking some questions.

We all know how important a September issue of Vogue is.

This September Cara Delevingne will be gracing Vogue UK’s cover for the 3rd time.
Fun Fact: This September will be Vogue UK’s largest issue published with just over 460 pages!

The spread which was photographed by Mario Testino shows off an elegant sixties vibe. The cover particularly highlights Cara in Nicolas Ghesquiere’s debut Louis Vuitton collection.

If any of this is sounding familiar to you, that is because it should! The photos, however great they may be, mirror that of the American Vogue July issue almost exactly. We are referring to the July issue in which Delevingne actually wore the same Louis Vuitton look and the same hair and make-up.
It is being speculated that it could have been the same shoot, however, nothing has been clarified at this time.

Here at Annex we know first-hand how stressful putting an issue together can be, but for Vogue UK, it seems odd that they would let their September issue slip in such a way.
We are sure someone will be getting to the bottom of this.

But, until then, enjoy the photos and wait in anticipation for not only this September issue but for them all. It is our favorite time of the year and we are guessing you probably like it too.
