Lifestyle rag roll call: A look at September’s covers

It’s the start of September and magazines are landing on our door step. It’s a lot to keep up with, so we thought we would round up who is where and talking about what. Got that? Also who even are some of these people? Well, we’re here to help you out.

First up…Quest.

This month’s issue of the long running society mag Quest — definitely a for us, by us affair — featured Lauren Fitzpatrick, a realtor associate with the notorious “A-team” at Douglas Elliman.

Here is a section from he online bio.

“Lauren grew up in New York and studied at Vassar College before receiving her Bachelors degree from Marist College, where she studied International Business and Communications. Today, she splits her time between her apartment in New York City’s West Village and her Miami Beach home on beautiful Sunset Island.”

Okay, we are starting to get the picture.

“Lauren is an avid health and wellness practitioner and enjoys yoga, art, architecture and design. She also serves on the board of the Haiti Empowerment Mission, a non-profit organization that aims to empower the people of Haiti through quality education, diverse vocational training and job creation.”

Her profile in Quest praises her ability to balance a high-demand job with impeccable style, and showed her decked out in Christian Dior, Marchesa, Valentino and more.

Sounds about right.

Resident has a slightly more famous cover star, or at least a cover star with a more famous name. Their “Philanthropy Issue” features philanthropist, bosom pal of Jean Shafiroff and noted horse fancier Georgina Bloomberg. We haven’t read their story but we are willing to bet that it proves once again that casual horse-lovers don’t exist. Georgina is ride or die, and having a billionaire daddy makes that so much easier.

Once again DuJour has it going on, sorta. Their Fall issue spotlights Uma Thurman, but the writing is pretty shaky and the interview is as thin as a slice of Ibérico.

Hamptons is all about actress Camilla Belle in their Labor Day issue. The are advertising her “refreshing perspective on life, film, and fashion reminds us to embrace the fall season with style, strength, and open-mindedness.”

“Having lunch with Camilla Belle during her first Hamptons holiday last year, I was captivated by her buoyancy…” the story opens. She floats!

The September issue of Social Life magazine highlights the great achievements of young real estate mogul Emir Bahadir. We’ve never heard of him either.

Wait a second! We got an email from this guy once.

“Having travelled the world and enjoying only its finest things, Emir’s personal brand “Bahadiring” represents the lifestyle, entertainment, and commerce arm of his organization. Emir wants to share his top-of-the-line lifestyle with the world,” so reads the pitch we received.

The spread’s photographs won’t let you down either. They capture his pouty lips and bare feet cozied up in some white fur — if you’re into that sorta thing.

The premiere issue of Goop magazine is out and it’s just as crazy as you imagined it would be.  It’s even got Gwyneth Paltrow laying nude in a pool of wet mud. She discusses improved orgasms, on-the-go workouts and alternative remedies, including purposefully seeking bee stings and “master cleanses.”

Louise Linton’s Instagram misdemeanor resulted with an apology in a unlike venue: Washington Life magazine’s September issue. In her interview, she reflects on her problematic response to a comment on her controversial Instagram post, while sitting pretty for the photographers in a designer evening gown that likely cost several thousand dollars.

Town and Country Magazine gets sentimental in September, with a cover story on American Horror Story star Billie Lourd and the tough year she’s had dealing with the loss of her mother and grandmother.

IN New York’s September issue is all about fall fashion. The cover story is a gallery of fashion photographs, where two models display “Harlem Renaissance” style, with a modern classic look to match the historic Uptown neighborhood.
That’s all well and good, but you’ve got wonder if “Harlem Renaissance” style is really the best way to honor African American cultural icons? Coming to a protest near you…
And finally, LLNYC. We’ve got Kristin Chenoweth discussing her hunt for a legacy role, Bronies and the Westboro Baptist Church. It’s pretty meaty if you ask us, so keep your eyes peeled. It drops Monday.
