In The States, the September issues of the major women’s glossies are the most important and prestigious of the year. They are the heavy-hitters with regards to advertising and have, in the pre-recession past, netted 700 page telephone directories for the likes of market leader, American Vogue. For a celebrity or model to feature on the cover of a September issue is an even more than usually significant indicator of hotness.
So who gets the nod this year? Take a look. See if you can spot a common trend.
Blondes. Blondes. Blondes. Never mind black faces. Or Latina faces. Or even a brunette?
In this country, glossy editors get a bit of stick for not featuring enough diverse beauties on our own covers. I’d say we’re paragons of representation in comparison to our American sisters. But I would say that, wouldn’t I?
