Last year, British model and aristocrat Lady Kitty Spencer starred on the September cover of  Town & Country in a necklet of Bulgari

diamonds the year before, it was Catherine Zeta-Jones and her daughter Carys Zeta Douglas clad in printed dresses by Michael Kors

this September, the magazine known for delivering clever cover lines about high society in Aspen, decided to ditch the rich and call on a "resistocrat." Kerry Washington  graces the cover of Town & Country's September 2020 issue.Law Roach Styled the cover shoot, which features a dreamy, one-shoulder draped lavender gown by Cushnie  as the headlining image — a welcome designer credit that doesn't scream stuffy country club. The rest of the spread contains some wealthy staples like a Chanel scalloped tweed suit set and a high-neck Ralph Lauren connection dress, but Roach paired the garments with pieces from Black-owned brands, like a ring by Mateo.

In the accompanying story, Sarah Elizabeth Lewis writes about Washington's latest project — a documentary that she produced which gives an inside look into the work and lives of a group of lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union. Lewis discusses the importance of the film with Washington, who explains why ACLU lawyers are her superheroes and how we can all join the fight for social justice.

"At [my production company] Simpson Street, we really believe that heroes look like all of us," Washington says in her conversation with Lewis. "These lawyers are real life superheroes. What I think they each do so beautifully in the film is show us that while they are taking on the greatest challenges to our civil rights in our lives, they are also just people."

The September 2020 issue of Town and country will be available on newsstands on August 12.

Multi-faceted performer Rihanna graces every cover of Harper’s Bazaar across the globe as she talks about everything from influence to inclusivity.

The September issues always bring exciting new fashion to the forefront, but leave it to the 32-year-old singer to up the ante. An inside interview

with the Fenty mogul, conducted with editor Kahlana Barfield Brown, comes complete with an accompanying series of shots captured by Gray Sorrenti, with creative direction by Jenn Brill.

The shoot includes thats how-stopping fuzzy yellow coat from the Daniel Lee’s Fall 2020 Bottega Veneta offering, which makes for a spectacular cover image. In the new edition of the glossy, RiRi’s inimitable personal style during the ‘stay-at-home’ orders is evident as she models both vintage numbers, such as an archival John Galliano dress, and covetable high fashion pieces—think: a Dior logo print silk headscarf and a Saint Laurent coat—with aplomb. And because Rihanna certainly plays by her own rules, she’s even seen taking out the trash in her favorite fuchsia pink Amina Muaddi shoes.

Unsurprisingly, the shoot is also peppered with Savage x Fenty lingerie, and makeup looks throughout are executed with her cult-status Fenty Beauty products. Speaking of, the star talks about her brand vision for Fenty and the difficulties of “getting it right.”

“I’ve always seen the Fenty brand as more than just makeup, and I knew I wanted to make skin care from the very beginning,” she says. “It was just about getting it right. You have to live with the formulas for a while and test them in different ways. It’s very different from makeup in that sense. It takes a long time.” Much to the delight of beauty lovers everywhere, Rihanna took part in Harper’s popular video series, Go To Bed With Me.

If you need us, we’ll be adding all of her recommendations to cart.

LONDON–The British issue of Vogue is dedicating its September issue to activism, Covering two black activists and produced by a predominantly black team. Editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, who is Black, said he wanted the magazine's new issue, to be published Friday, to be a "rallying cry for the future." He said 2020 is a "moment of necessary change," and told the BBC that the focus on activism was a "no brainer" decision He said 2020 is a “moment of necessary change,” and told the BBC that the focus on activism was a “no brainer” decision.

Marcus Rashford & Adwoa Aboah Lead An Inspiring Army Of Activists On Vogue’s September Cover.

The cover features 22-year-old Manchester United soccer star Marcus Rashford, who in June successfully campaigned to force Britain’s government to grant free food vouchers to poor families during the summer holidays.

The special pull-out September 2020 cover features the “faces of hope”.

 He posed alongside model and mental health activist Adwoa Aboah. They were photographed by Misanharriman, the first Black photographer tasked with shooting the magazine’s September issue — traditionally seen as the most important one in the Vogue calendar.

Enninful" knows that there are many talented people from a diverse background who have never had a fair chance, finally the door is ajar,” Harriman said. The fold-out cover features 18 other faces, including campaigners for the Black lives matter movement, feminists and anti-racism activists. Enninful said last month that he was “racially profiled” by a security guard at his office, who told him to “use the loading bay” as he arrived for work.
