For fashion magazines, the September issue is the thickest and most important of the year, shaping global fashion trends and elements for the next year. The September issue of Vogue magazine, in particular, is regarded as a “fashion bible.” The production of its September 2007 issue was even made into the documentary “The September Issue.”

In an unprecedented move, for this year’s September issue, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour gave cover star Beyonce total control of the cover. The US pop diva hired 23-year-old black photographer Tyler Mitchell to photograph the cover, making him the first black photographer to shoot a Vogue cover in the magazine’s126-year history.

Chinese actress Zhou Xun is the cover star for the September issue of the Chinese edition, being featured on a Vogue cover for the seventh time. Meanwhile, the Taiwanese edition is celebrating the year’s biggest fashion month with six different covers, featuring artists Christine Fan, Amber An, Puff Kuo, Nikki Hsieh, Summer Meng, Joanne Tseng and Prince Chiu, respectively.
