It's no secret that the September issue is regarded as the most important issue of the year for fashion magazines. Every fashion magazine puts their best perfectly manicured foot forward for the release of this issue. Vogue has set itself to a whole different level thanks to Queen Bee herself, Anna Wintour (don't worry, Beyonce, you're still Queen Bee in my book!) The high level of notoriety with Vogue's September issue resulted in the 2009 documentary, The September Issue, that showed the ellaborate process of creating Vogue's famous publication for Fall.
But why so much emphasis on September issue? What about May? Or showing February some love? This particular issue is coveted because it is filled to the brim with the latest Fall trends in terms of colors, silhouettes, fresh-faced models, and design. It is the ultimate back-to-school guide in the world of stilettos and sequins. With September being on our coattails, it means that the much anticipated issue reveal is a mere few weeks away. Who will be Vogue's covergirl this year? Lupita? Beyonce? Mrs. Piggy? Here is a look at the covergirls over the past two decades. Which one is your favorite icon?
