Ah, September: the biggest month of the year as far as fashion and our favorite glossies go. We expect magazines to pull out all the stops in these mega issues, and this year they certainly don’t disappoint. Today, Vogue confirmed that its September cover boasts not one, but three of-the-moment models. The interior spread expands to show six more, for a total count of nine dazzling women.

Not only were these cover girls chosen for their prowess in front of the lens, but Vogue also dubs them “the Instagirls,” a generation of social media–savvy models rapidly building their own personal brands. From left to right, you see Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, and Karlie Kloss (all on the cover itself), followed by Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente, and Andreea Diaconu.

The sunny spread, filled with striking fall textiles, was shot by famed photographer Mario Testino. If this layout looks familiar, it might be because ten years ago the magazine also featured nine supermodels (including Gisele Bündchen and Daria Werbowy) on its September issue cover, photographed by Steven Meisel.

With major titles (Vogue and W included) hinting at a new class of top models, I suspect that Karlie and Cara are reaching the level of 90s-era Cindy and Kate. Except now they’re not just household names – their fandom extends throughout the Internet, too.

In November 2012, Louis Vuitton introduced its L’Invitation Au Voyage advertising campaign featuring a one-minute film of model Arizona Muse traipsing through Paris wearing the brand’s clothing and accessories. The clip ends with the model hopping in a hot-air ballon, presumably en route to her next destination. On Thursday, Louis Vuitton released the next installment in the series.

In the new film, Muse touches down in Venice, shares a piano bench with David Bowie at a big masquerade ball, then sails away as the sun rises over the canals. (Why is this not my life?)

Let’s hope it takes less than a year for the model to get to her next destination. Watch below.
