Fashion is a reflection of our time and no one else than VOGUE presents this reflection better. Taking in mind that it is time for the September Issue, there was no way I am skipping my fashion dive in the sea full of colorful pages of both Dutch and British VOGUE this month. Iman Hamaam from Code Management is the spotted model from VOGUE NL’s cover and as you can see the picture above, Emma Watson is the star from the British’s one. Our blog about Iman’s cover is here if you have missed it. Going through the pages of VOGUE is like entering a whole new fabulous world full of glamour and beauty. I can never get enough of the fashion bible and this time while I was looking at the editorials and the campaigns of the biggest fashion houses I was supper happy to see so many familiar Dutch faces in the British VOUGE! The list is long, so you better get prepared!
Before I start with my recap of the issue, for the once who don’t know, the September issue is the biggest and the most important issue of the year of each fashion magazine. There is a very interesting documentary from 2009, showing the preparations of the American’s VOGUE editor-in-chief Anna Wintour for the 2007 fall-fashion issue. I find the short movie truly inspiring so if you are curious, you can check the link with the trailer here.
Yesterday after work I headed to the closest book store to buy the British issue and when I headed to the section with magazines in English, classy dressed Emma Watson got my attention from the beautiful pale pink cover of the British VOGUE. So I got it and on my way to home I was already reading it. I knew I will see Dutch models inside, because we already spotted Julia van Os from Future Faces and the American Molly Bair, represented by Elite Amsterdam for the editorial The Shining (click here to see it).
For the ones who wonder and are curious to find out who are the Dutch models inside the British VOGUE, I decided to write a short recap about the girls in the newest issue coming from the UK. One of the first faces I recognized was Agnes Nieske from I Be Management who was spotted for the new campaign of Celine Fall/Winter 2015 by Spotted Style a few days ago. See the whole campaign here.
The presence of Agnes in the fashion issue was followed by top model Maartje Verhoef from Micha Models and her campaign for Valentino. On the picture Maartje is in the campaign together with models Grace Hartzel, Harleth Kuusik and Ine Neefs.
The list with spotted Dutch prides continues with model Lara Stone form IMG (New York) for Tom Ford. The campaign was photographed by Inez van Lamesweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
The next Dutch model in the September issue is Jamilla Hoogenboom from Micha Models for Alexander McQueen. A while ago we interviewed her and if you have missed it, you can find the interview with Jamilla here. The pictures were taken by David Sims and the other model from the campaign is Julia van Os from Future Faces.
A few more pages and again we see the stunning Dutchie Lara Stone in her campaign for Kurt Geiger F/W 2015. Is this the last time where we see a picture of her in this issue? Our guesses were right and we spotted her again until we turned the last page.
Next one on the list is the half Dutch iconic model Gigi Hadid, spotted for the Autumn/Winter 2015 Campaign of Top Shop, photographed by Tyrone Lebon. This month Gigi was spotted in editorials for the American Vogue (Forces of Fashion) and Vanity Fair ( It Girl).
The following pages are with pictures of Annely Bouma from Ulla Models, wearing long beautiful wool coat and cashmere tunic for the VOGUE shops series of pictures, taken by Rory Payne.

And we are finishing our insider with the the last spotted model between the pages Julia Bergsoeff from Ulla models, wearing a padded wool coat Fendy, inspired by the art of Sophie Taeurber- Arp and wool-mix sweater Isabel Marant. Well done, Dutchies! Until next month!
