September 2009 Marie Claire Cover With Ashley Olsen

Do You Wish September Mags Had Non-Blond Cover Models?

Since the September cover of Marie Claire popped up, it's become increasingly obvious that the glossy mags weren't kidding when they released their cover choices for the first Fall month — generally the biggest and most important issue of the year. As Fashionologie points out, Vogue, Allure, Elle, W, Glamour, and Marie Claire will all have light-haired cover stars. InStyle, which will feature Jennifer Lopez, seems to be the only exception. There's nothing wrong with (or unusual about) having a blonde on the cover, but it's going to look mighty light at the newsstand. What do you think? Are the mags just going with big celebs who happen to be blond, or might editors feel a fair-haired model is the safest way to sell in a tough publishing market? Or could it be that society is having a blonde moment?
