It’s considered the issue of the year. It’s the September issue and it has to be big. Big on fall 2011′s fashions. Big on adverts. Big on features. Big on who it puts on the cover in order to get you to buy it, to deliver the sales figures that print media so desperately needs.
Who then has US Vogue turned to in order to secure it a winning spot amongst all the September issues you’ll find on the newsstand? British model Kate Moss. And as something of a coup de grace to their competitors the September 2011 issue of American Vogue doesn’t promise any old photo shoot with the model, but some very exclusive photos from Moss’ wedding.
Photographed largely on the day of Kate Moss‘ wedding by Mario Testino, the photo shoot effectively turns the September 2011 edition of Vogue magazine into something of a wedding photo album for Mr. and Mrs. Jamie Hince. A tie-in editorial draws a better picture of the day, however, and it comes courtesy of the pen of Hamish Bowles.
You can see a sample of the photos by clicking on the thumbnails above and browsing through the gallery, while the full feature and editorial can be found in September’s US Vogue.
