The 2016 Vogue September Issue by the Numbers


Vogue September Issue by the numbers - Driving Master Danny

September - Summer's over, kids are back to school, mums are overtaking the entrances to the grocery store and Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte is secretly back. And so is the the nagging question of "Will I be able to hold the Vogue September Issue with one hand, or do I need to put my PSL down?" The answer to that is: Yes, it is one hand friendly this year. Somewhat.

The 2016 September Issue of Vogue has only 800 pages - a number they chose not to brag about by making it small and hiding it on the bottom of the cover. 

2016 September Issue by the Numbers
It is 1'' thick, just like last year (achieved by running a lot of ads on heavy stock to bulk up the issue)
Weighs 3 lbs (lost some weight)
Kendall Jenner's gracing the cover. Well, it's better than Beyoncé from last year. And her hair is dry. Groundbreaking.
577 pages of ads
2 ads for cigarettes
6 pages advertising NBC's Fall lineup
4 pages for a Dyson hairdryer. Yes, it does exist, and it looks like a wind tunnel got crossed with an electric back massager.
114 pages of ads before First page of Contents
671 pages before the First fashion editorial
720 pages before the articles
1 Kendall Jenner foldout, cleverly hidden inside a Dior lipstick ad featuring unrecognizable Natalie Portman
1 article on curvy models (not Plus, Curvy - that's as far as Anna will allow)
1 article on how the Pill is no longer good for you. Next year they should follow up with a guide to baby vomit-proof style.
Vogue's with Her by profiling Huma Abedin, Clinton's right hand (and politely glossing over Abedin's husband's Internet shenanigans). Of course, since it is a fashion magazine, they have to cover her fashion maturity from J Crew to Oscar de la Renta. 
Discover what a "slasher" (les slasheuses in French) is. The rest of us just call them "women". It's different than "multi-hyphenate". 
The 70s are back, flower-power rules again, and leopard discovered how to color its spots. Don't forget to over-accessorize, invest in a military coat, and grow a rooftop garden.
