An old tired concept strikes oil. Majorly. The inclusion of Daria is a little odd and the placement of maybe Claudia or Cindy may have been a better choice, but these images are striking. None of them look a day older than their photoshopped age.
Open the magazine up and the images get better. I’m always for any ode to the ‘super’, so count me in for the Linda, Kate, Naomi, and the Christy covers. It isn’t nostalgic if they’re careers are still on fire.

I still claim that my invitation was lost somewhere in the mail. Kate’s wedding was the wedding to be at, and such a darling wedding at that. Who cares about the royal wedding nonsense when the Kate Moss is getting married?
First off, I want to thank Anna Wintour for not only providing a lovely cover, but providing us all with a brilliant idea for the September issue: Kate’s wedding. She is but the queen, am I right?
Going through the photos, some big names were in attendance at her wedding. There was Stella McCartney and her father, Paul McCartney, Jack White and Karen Elson, Hamish Bowles, Naomi Campbell, Marc Jacobs, Daphne Guinness, Lara Stone, and many others were all their to witness the nuptials and the soiree that happened after. Such a charming celebration it must have been.
For photos, follow the cut or go to Vogue.com. I know I will be purchasing this issue the moment I find it on newsstands.
Vogue September 2011
Model: Kate Moss
Ph: Mario Testino
How fabulous are these girls? Remove Carmen and Edie with maybe Abbey, Anja or Natasha and we have a perfect list in this UK Vogue dedicated to stars. True supermodels Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer are joined with seasoned veteran Angela Lindvall and a list of my favorites. Golden and beautiful.
Who did this i-D logo? It’s silly. Anyway, i-D is celebrating 30 years and there will be three covers: THEN Pre-Fall on sale August 12th, NOW Fall on sale September 23rd, NEXT Winter on sale November 11th. In the issue will feature The XX, Phoebe Philo, Sir Paul Smith, Florence Welch, Vivienne Westwood, Lara Stone, Pink, Gareth Pugh, and of course the cover models Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Lady Gaga.
“30 years – whoosh, more than an instant in i-D’s lifeline – it’s a generation. Three decades to be celebrated and contained in this special issue. The whole issue was created by Nick Knight 200 portraits that SHOWstudio made at the close of 2009 in Somerset House – once the home of British passports, now the central location for British Fashion Week. Nick’s celebration of identity was also a commemorative project inspired by the 5th birthday issue of i-D, where 100 portraits were featured in The Grown Up Issue. 25 years on, the gallery selection grew to 200. Happy birthday!” Terry Jones, Editor-in-Chief, i-D
I like all three covers, I really do. Kate and Naomi are absolutely, and I hate to use this term, quite fierce. Lady Gaga’s is fine, but I’m wondering how she got a cover. Nick Knight might have made that happen, but let’s be honest here. Kate and Naomi are icons, Kate being one of the best and most profitable models of all time that have influenced the fashion world greatly. I feel instead of Lady Gaga they could have chosen Lara, Karlie, Sasha, or even Natasha. That’s just my opinion, though.
I’m personally purchasing Kate’s cover and will pray to her altar every night, etc. Which one will you choose?
YES! Glamazon supermodel for over two decades will have her segment on Oprah air this Monday. If you have never left the house, you may not know who this woman is. She’s notorious for throwing phones at people like she’s at war and one of the most successful black models, and lately being questioned for accepting a ‘blood diamond‘ from Charles Taylor in 1997 while visiting Nelson Mandela’s house . You have to love bat-shit crazy! The thing that gets me is that not only did Oprah have her sign the “No Phone Zone,” a pledge that Oprah devised to not text and drive, but she had Naomi agree to sign a new pledge to not throw phones that Oprah would create after the show. Only on Oprah will we find this amount of crazy bitches. First Tom Cruise going absolutely ape-shit and now Oprah having Naomi sign a pledge to not throw phones. Where will we go next?
