British VogueUltimately, September is all about the hits of the season giving you, the Vogue reader, the authority to make the most informed style choices for the months ahead. As for the cover? I always knew it had to be Rihanna. A fearless music-industry icon and businesswoman, when it comes to that potent mix of fashion and celebrity, nobody does it quite like her. No matter how haute the styling goes, or experimental the mood, you never lose her in the imagery. She is always Rihanna. There’s a lesson for us all in that. Whichever way you choose to dress the new season, take a leaf out of her book and be yourself. – Edward Enninful

So here it is, Vogue’s big fashion special, definitive 400-page guide to everything you’ll want to buy, wear, admire and be inspired by as a new season dawns. September issues are important in the fashion world, the largest and most lavish of the year and a real statement about what the coming months will bring. With this one being my first as editor-in-chief, I was determined it would be something special Edward Enninful wrote.Rihanna

On top of providing an indispensable guide to the clothes and trends that will define autumn 2018, I wanted these pages to act as a marker for everything that is exciting and varied about the times we live in. Essentially, we are taking you on a journey – from our offices in central London, where I invited Bajan superstar Rihanna earlier this summer to talk diva-dom and diversity.Rihanna Photos

 Nick Knight – one of the original masters – has also been busy too, shooting, among other things, our cover story with me. He never gets fazed by anything you throw at him. I’ll say, “Let’s do flowers in the hair”, “Let’s do thin eyebrows” – and he remains perfectly cool. Meanwhile, Charlotte Wales brings her unique point of view on women to bear in The Age of Opulence, showing how beautiful – and beautifully dressed – you can be at any size
