Every September, popular magazines go big with their issues in length, content and the celebrities they choose to grace their covers. Unfortunately, the faces that usually model in the publishing industry’s most highly coveted magazines are usually white and many publications have been called out for the lack of representation. This year, there seems to be a shift as at least nine September covers and one weekly publicaton, the Hollywood Reporter, feature black celebrity women.

From singer Beyoncé’s powerful glance and flower headpiece on Vogue, actress Tracee Ellis Ross’ joyful portrait on Elle Canada, to comedienne Tiffany Haddish’s cool New York street style on Glamour, here is a look at all the September magazine issues on newsstands everyone is scrambling to collect.
