The September Issue covers are considered by many to be the most important of the year. These glossies are the largest issue for each magazine, containing several hundred pages of advertising and editorial content and sales are usually determined by who sits on the cover. So you can understand that the selection process is a fine art. You either get it right or get someone reaching for the other title sitting next to you. After all, it’s difficult carrying all those issues back with you without getting a hernia!
For 2012, September covers are already leaking. We don’t have any images as of yet but we’re less than one month away from some major cover reveals. Ahead of schedule, WWD have released what celebrities will be featured on select September covers. It’s no surprise that they are all celebs as these draw a much bigger buy rather than using traditional models. So, without further ado….drum roll please…
September covers 2012
- Victoria Beckham for Glamour
- Katy Perry for Elle
- Penelope Cruz for W
- Jessica Chastain for Vanity Fair
- Lady Gaga for Vogue

It looks like it’s going to be a musical September cover theme with five out of the eight cover stars announced having a career as a musician, including Posh Spice who started her career as a songstress.
August can’t come fast enough! Bring on the September issues….
