We know that September issues are made to be magical, but holy smakerals!!
Interview magazine has officially outdone itself by snagging both Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss for their September covers, amongst five other iconic supermodels!
Naomi even gets butt nekkid for photogs Mert & Marcus, and judging by the looks of her bod, 43 must be the new 23. Either that or the supermodel has taken us back in time!!
Unfortunately, Kate didn’t pose for a full frontal, but the 39-year-old still looks stunning — freckles and all!
Check out Naomi’s NSFW pic (below)!

Red is most definitely Lily Collins‘ color!
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones actress looks drop dead gorgeous in a textured Dolce & Gabbana frock on the front of Glamour UK’s September issue.
The spread features even more red in the form of a collared Paule Ka dress. Not exactly the most practical outfit for dog-walking, but Lily’s not fazed as she takes her pooch for a stroll in Roger Vivier pumps.
Is there anything she can’t do???
Ch-ch-check out all the fabby pics in the gallery (below)!

Not that they weren’t fabulous to begin with, but having a massive spread in Fabulous magazine makes 1D’s fabulosity even MORE legit than EVER!!
One Direction stars in the mag’s special “American Idols” themed edition, coming to newsstand THIS SUNDAY!!
As you can tell by their attire in the photos (above), Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson showed up to the Fourth of July party several months late.
But we’ll forgive them because, as
Liam Leeroy would say, they’re per-fect!
You’ve probably stopped reading at this point because you’re so mesmerized by the lads’ stars and stripes, so we’ll let you get on with it and view the rest of the spread (below)!

Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lawrence & More 2013 Cover Stars! Check Out This Year’s Magazine Trends HERE!!
This past year has seen both usual and unusual trends for magazine sales!
On the UNusual side, People magazine’s biggest-selling covers featured stories about real people instead of celebrities. And on the usual side, mags with Kim or Khloe Kardashian on their covers did super well!
Which just proves that people may not agree with the Kardashians and the things they do, but that doesn’t stop the public wanting to know what they’re doing!
And now that Jennifer Lawrence has admitted her love for the Armenian fam, it makes sense that both she and Kim would totally dominate the magazine stands of 2013!!
Here’s a breakdown of some of this year’s best selling cover stories:
For People magazine, an issue starring Cleveland kidnapping victims was their #1 seller, followed by a Jon & Kate Plus 8 cover and a story on the McStay murder case.
People managing editor Larry Hackett explained their readers’ need for a good story, saying:
“A life-changing story will do better than a celeb story, all things being equal. If you’re a famous person who’s not doing much of interest at that moment, you’re not going to sell covers anymore. People want a narrative, and they’ll take a narrative even if it’s about someone that makes many of us scratch our our heads and go, ‘Why do people care about them?’ They care because it’s a good story.”
As far as fashion-oriented publications go, Kim Kardashian’s April Cosmopolitan cover was the magazine’s biggest this year, selling 1.2 million single copies. Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyonc and J.Law carried many glossies through their large September and March issues.
Lauren Conrad made a splash on her Marie Claire and Lucky issues, where she was featured as a fashion icon rather than a reality TV star. Blake Lively still trumped Lauren’s sales, however, and was the star of Lucky and People StyleWatch‘s biggest issues this year. And she was still a hit despite her lack of movie and TV roles lately!!
Vanity Fair‘s two biggest issues featured the late Princess Diana and Audrey Hepburn, displaying their readership’s interest in deceased stars.
Prince George was obvi a huge seller as well — but there were also some big names that sold a lot less than expected.
For instance, Jennifer Lopez‘s popularity seems to have waned, and covers featuring Jessica Biel, Heidi Klum, Katy Perry, and One Direction showed surprisingly lackluster sales.
As for 2014, predictions of future best-sellers favor big celeb weddings (ie. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, Kim and Kanye West, etc.). We’ll also probably see more of Kerry Washington, Shailene Woodley, and newcomer Lupita Nyong’o.
