We're only a few weeks into Summer, but the stars who will appear on the fashion world's biggest covers in September have long since been selected and photographed. And by and large, our favorite magazines aren't taking any chances with the most important issue of the year.
Case in point: according to WWD, most of the biggest books in the business have chosen women who've shown their mettle on the newsstand. Jennifer Lawrence, who's appeared on the covers of Elle, Vanity Fair, British Vogue, and W in the past year, will cover Vogue's September issue. Meanwhile, Kate Upton — who has been featured on two Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers and the June cover of Vogue — will make an appearance on the September cover of Elle.

Many of the other big magazines have chosen young, but popular, cover subjects. Lucky's choice was Blake Lively, while Cosmopolitan went with Nina Dobrev. Rooney Mara will cover T Magazine, Lily Collins will cover Seventeen, and Zooey Deschanel will return to the cover of Marie Claire. Meanwhile, Lauren Bush Lauren and Claire Courtin-Clarins teamed up for Town & Country's philanthropy themed issue.
The only outlier this year? While most of the women on the September covers have been spotted on the newsstand in the past year, Jennifer Garner will make a cover comeback of sorts on the front of Allure.
