It’s that time again for Vogue Magazine to unveil their cover for the prestigious September issue.

Beyonce covers Vogue

The feast for our eyes were beautiful pictures of the one and only Beyonce, who makes her fourth appearance on a Vogue September cover. This time it was shot in London by photographer Tyler Mitchell. At just 23 years old, Mitchell is the youngest and the very first African American to shoot for the magazine. All of the hype surrounding this issue made me reminisce on some of my favorite September issues of years past. The conclusion is this list of my top 5 September issues.

5.  Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta September 1998

Top 5 Vogue Covers

Back in the good ole days when supermodels ruled the world, these two beauties graced the cover of Vogue’s September 1995 issue. Maybe it’s the welcoming smiles that we no longer see or even that beautiful red Isaac Mizrahi gown on Amber Valletta but I’ve always gravitated towards this image.

4.  Kirsten Dunst September 2005

top 5 Vogue covers

While promoting her movie Marie Antoinette, Kirsten Dunst, who played the title role, covered the 2005 September issue dressed as her character. The Sophia Copolla directed movie was a stylized perspective of Marie Antoinette and her rise to power, which ultimately led to her demise. This was a fashion lovers dream and Dunst hit a homerun in the role.

3. Supermodels covering the September 2004 issue

Top 5 September issues

Now I love models as much as the next fashion lover, however, anytime Vogue decides to use models on the cover it’s like a big hug from Jesus. Maybe not so dramatic, but I digress. The 2004 September Issue saw the comeback of the supermodels and featured a foldout cover which bore the amazing pictures of the day’s hottest models. Daria Werbowy, Natalia Vodianova, and Giselle Bundchen made the front.

2. Kate Moss September 2011

Top 5 September issues

Kate! Kate! Kate! Who doesn’t love the rebel and notorious badass Kate Moss? Having been one of most famous supermodels in the world, Moss knows how to turn out a picture. While a supermodel siting on a magazine cover in 2011 was extremely rare, that didn’t stop Vogue from putting this beauty on that year’s September issue.

1 Naomi Campbell September 1989

Top 5 September issues

The fashion gods were shining down when Anna Wintour accepted her position as Editor in Chief for Vogue in 1988. Her very first September issue was in 1989 and featured a then 18 year old Naomi Campbell. A black model on a Vogue cover was rare in itself, therefore one on a September cover was downright unheard of. Thanks Anna!

Honorable mention: Rihanna September 2018

Top 5 September issues

Granted this is a British Vogue cover, I had to feature Rihanna because she’s the shit and I love her.

It’s no secret that you can tell a lot about a person by the kind of shoes they wear. So it goes without saying that choosing the kind of shoes that best match your personality is the perfect way to give people a great first impression of you. There is some importance of choosing a pair of shoes.

Here’s our guide on how to choose a pair of shoes that matches your personality.

1. Keep it simple with sneakers

If you’re the kind of person that values function over form, then you’re probably getting around town in your trusted pair of sneakers. Sneakers are the go to for people who want to be comfortable, but who are also on their feet a lot during the day. Choosing sneakers are easy when you check out the reviews at https://bestshoes.reviews. Wearing sneakers shows that you’re low maintenance and understated, yet active and easy going.

2. Get noticed in some pumps

If you want to be noticed in your day to day routine, you’ll be wearing pumps. Some say that the higher the heel on your pumps, the more heads you will turn. Pumps give off a feminine charm and give great definition to your calf muscles, but they’re not for everyone. In order to pull off wearing a heel, you require confidence and grace and you won’t mind the occasional discomfort.

3. Be graceful in ballet flats

Ballet flats have become all the rage in the past ten years and for good reason. Not only are they extremely comfortable, but they are far easier to walk in than pumps, and even more convenient than wearing sneakers. You can just slip them on and away you go. The flats-wearer is unimposing yet likes to feel feminine.

4. Be dominant in boots

Boots are strong and practical, with uses ranging from protection in wet weather and work situations, to support and function. If you’re into wearing boots, then you have a dominant personality and there’s nothing that can get in your way. If you want to show off your independence and command respect from people, then consider boots as your shoe choice.

5. Be casual in sandals

If you’re not caring what people think and you just want to feel free and easy, then sandals are the way to go. Sandals are great for quick trips out to the store, or for wearing when the weather is hot, but their real value comes in situations where other shoes just don’t cut it. For instance, a walk on the beach would be terrible in pumps or boots! Choose sandals if you don’t care what people think and just want to be yourself.

Shoes say a lot about your personality, and it can be important to pick a shoe that can make a lasting impression on others. Each shoe type portrays certain characteristics, and choosing the right one can be a laborious task. Use our guide the next time you go shoe shopping and you’ll find the right shoe for your personality.

That being said, don’t be afraid to have a bold attitude with all of your wardrobe. A printed dress hat or even wildly colored jewelry can take your look from drab to fierce.
