If you have a copy of this year's September issue of Vogue, I bet my cover looks pretty different from yours. I'm calling mine the special special anniversary issue. The new cover is the work of my two daughters who replaced Lady Gaga with their own drawings.
I took my daughters with me to buy magazines and when we entered the shop I still wasn't sure whether to buy the September issue this year. There are probably plenty of Lady Gaga fans out there who love the cover; I'm just not one of them and to me it was a weird cover girl choice. As I took the magazine in my hands and saw the content I just knew that I wouldn't be able to part with it. After all, this is the September issue and I buy it every year.
Before heading back home I told my daughters that we would have to do something about the cover because I wouldn't be able to look at Lady Gaga on my coffee table in the next weeks (it's 916 pages long, it will take some time to read through it). Even they didn't like it so they were more than happy to be of help. I asked them to draw for me a new lady and I gave them full artistic freedom. As soon as we arrived home they got to work in their rooms and soon they were downstairs with their drawings and glue and a new cover was born.
I love it that I also got a dog.
I say this with the greatest respect for Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington and Vogue's team of staff but I believe my daughters just kicked their cover's butt.
Have a wonderful weekend dear readers and blog friends!
