Highlights from the September issue of W magazine are below:

STORY TIME- page 172:

Stefano Tonchi, Editor in Chief, W, curates his first issue this September: “Starting with this issue, we present our vision for the who, what, where, when, and why in the world of contemporary style. We will tell the stories of the people who are changing the way we live and think,” W‘s Editor in Chief Stefano Tonchi says in his introductory Editors Letter. Fully re-designed and re-imagined, W will connect the dots and tell the whole story. This is “just the beginning of a new chapter in the long-running, stylish story of W.”


Yaya DaCosta, Jennifer Lawrence, Greta Gerwig, Kat Dennings, Jessica Chastain, Emma Roberts, Zoe Kravitz, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead:

For her first appearance in the pages of W, Editor at Large Lynn Hirschberg handpicked eight fearless, fiercely talented actresses in their teens and 20’s to profile as the central characters in some fall’s most exciting films. Photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Martin shot the portraits featured on W‘s first-ever triple gatefold cover.

Jennifer Lawrence, whose breakout role in Winter’s Bone is generating major Oscar buzz, headlines the feature: “Where are the boys? Where are the Robert Redfords and Paul Newmans of my age group? Where are the hunks who can act?”

Emma Roberts on future possibilities:”I don’t know what I’d do a full-on nude scene ever. I’ve never had a full-on sex scene…but we’ll see.”

Kat Dennings on her femaile affinity: “I like girl power. I love the ladies.”

Zoe Kravitz on her approach to intimate scenes:”I’ll make a sex scene as uncomfortable as I can just to break the ice.”
