Another September, another glossy tome of inspiration sent from the gods of fashion. The September issue is seen by fashion lovers around the world as the pinnacle of what is haute, giving us trends, looks and show-stopping editorials since the beginning of time (because nothing really existed before the September issue, right?). This year is no different. Cover girl Kendall Jenner serves us fierceness in the likes of Proenza Schouler, John Galliano and Givenchy. Lets take a look back at some of our favorite moments from September issues past, and think long and hard about how we can up our own fashion game (and take better photos to flaunt it).
