The September Wars

September is a very significant month for the fashion industry. It is a month where designers launch their collections for the new season and display them in the multiple fashion weeks that are held in in the big fashion capitals of the world. However September also represents a month when magazines launch their reviews of these shows and their forecasts for the upcoming year’s trend. It is no coincidence that this is every publications thickest issue and also the issue with the most expensive ad space. Most reputable fashion publications compete to outsell the other, and their tactic is very simple: the magazine with the best cover has the best odds of winning this game. Lets see who will be covering the September Issue of your favourite fashion glossy this year.

And on that note… The perks of being Blake Lively

Blake Lively may be self-effacing when it comes to her acting skills. But she has no problem admitting the incredible access and privilege her fame brings — especially in the fashion world.

In her new interview with Marie Claire (previewed by People.com), the lithe, blonde “Gossip Girl” star reminds us once again that she is not like us.

“Maybe it sounds jerky,” she tells Marie Claire‘s Nina Garcia, “but I’m lucky to be on such a fashion-centric show [Gossip Girl]. There’s no designer I don’t have access to.” And on the subject of her future wedding:

“What I planned before I got into the business has changed,” she says. “Now I’m like, ‘Hmm, I wonder what shoes Christian [Louboutin] is going to make me. And which couture house should I go to?’ “

But of course. Christian is a FOB (Friend Of Blake), naming a shoe after hergiving her personal style advice and gifting her his entire Spring 2012 collection. In short, it’s good to be Blake.

To be fair, the star has acknowledged how lucky she is to live a life of fame and fortune. “For me, this other stuff — well, the perks — is not the reason I do the job,”she once told Interview. “Couture fashion week, getting to meet Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano and Christian Louboutin is so exciting. […] But at the end of the day I wouldn’t be there without my job. There are a few things in life that matter above all else: your family, your friends, your loved ones.”

And by “loved ones,” we assume she means Ryan Reynolds. Some girls really do have all the luck.
