Visual inspiration: Our 10 favorite ads from the September magazines
We love this ad from Balenciaga because of its simplicity and intensity.  You can't take your eyes off of it. And if you're looking to shell out some serious cash, you can have that stunning bag too.
This design is simple and sleek, very powerful.
With a straightforward, convincing statement and a visual to support it, they've got our attention immediately.
We appreciated the design of this ad, and felt it really drives home the idea that La Mer is indeed "born from the healing powers of the sea."
There's not a soul in the world who would deny that this woman has "beyond beautiful hair." And if Moroccan Oil gave that to her, then we need it STAT.

One of our absolute favorite ads from the September issues was a 4-page spread from Mulberry. Whether or not the owls are super-imposed in the photos or Cara Delevingne is actually holding them, it's amazing

Though we couldn't find the exact Willow Tote in this ad, we found a pretty close version.

BUY IT's ad makes you feel like ordering from there will make you feel as glamorous as living on 5th avenue with a doorman.  Who wouldn't want a full cart of clothes coming to you in those chic black boxes?
It's all in the details: this ad is absolute perfection.  With all of the jewels the models are wearing, visually appealing is an understatement.
This campaign explains "Why this watch?" With a collection of important men and women who have owned them, we believe Rolex when they say that "It doesn't just tell time. It tells history." Visit your local Rolex retailer to find your timepiece.
This ad is clever and powerful, a campaign to stop bullying.  It was definitely a favorite.

September may be coming to an end, but as the beginning of fall, its inspiration will stay with us until the first snowflake falls. We all know that the September issues of our favorite magazines are the most coveted issues -- when it comes to cover stars, stories, and advertisements alike -- and they're by far the most talked-about. For anyone in the fashion business, these issues are the bread and butter, what much of the year is focused on.

The pages are filled with beautiful fall inspiration, prints, patterns, and yes -- a LOT of ads. But isn't that part of the fun? Sometimes the advertisements are the most visually stimulating, and it's incredible to see the creative liberties taken by advertisers every year.

We've gone through 6 of the largest and most beloved magazines: Vogue, Lucky, VanityFair, Elle, InStyle and Harper'sBazaar, choosing our favorite ads along the way. We picked the most unique, eye-catching and show-stopping ads in those pages. They made us think, they inspired us, and they left us wanting more.
