Fashion bible Vogue has ditched film and pop stars in favour of models for its coveted September cover, somewhat of a departure from tradition.

The September issue for fashion magazines is equivalent to Christmas in the real world – not only is it the biggest in size, but sets the tone for the year ahead for fashionistas and trendsetters.

The models who landed this prime spot include Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls.

The cover was shot by trusted Peruvian fashion photographer Mario Testino and comes with an inside pull-out spread of six more models – Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente and Andreea Diaconu.

They have been dubbed “Instagirls” for their social-media savvy and represent the new generation of supermodels.

For a fashion magazine that has long been a patron of stars from other realms, it’s refreshing that real models get their moment to shine and for once the overexposed celebs of Tinseltown get the snub.
