A Preview of W's September Issue — Edward Enninful and Lori Goldstein's First

W September 2011

>> W's September 2011 issue — which marks Edward Enninful's first full issue as the magazine's fashion and style director and Lori Goldstein's as style editor-at-large — doesn't hit newsstands until Aug. 23, but we've got a preview of its innards. Goldstein works with Guinevere van Seenus on a colorful, jewelry-centric spread; Mario Sorrenti captures Sasha Pivovarova and Freja Beha Erichsen in a comic book-bright piece; and Edward Enninful transforms Kristen Stewart into a bombshell for the issue's cover.

Among the September issue's other highlights: Steven Klein photographs Amber Valletta evolving from 20 to 120 years old with the help of prosthetic makeup; Tim Blanks profiles Phoebe Philo; Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott snap a fetishistic spread — with Lara Stone, Joan Smalls, and Tao Okamoto — inspired by Helmut Newton and The Night Porter; and Enninful, Steven Meisel, and makeup artist Pat McGrath collaborate on "Transformers," featuring models turned into heroines from the past. Think Linda Evangelista as Zizi Jeanmaire, Karen Elson as Judy Garland, Raquel Zimmermann as Babe Paley, and Jessica Stam as Gala Dali.
