“I was ready to let go of anything that was holding me back from being my ultimate self. I have had bouts of situational depression and my heart was broken last year because, unknowingly, I put so much validity in the reaction of the public, and the public didn’t react in the way I had expected to … which broke my heart,”@katyperry tells @derekblasberg in the August 2018 issue. “Music is my first love and I think it was the universe saying: ‘Okay, you speak all of this language about self-love and authenticity, but we are going to put you through another test and take away any kind of validating “blankie”. Then we’ll see how much you do truly love yourself.’ That brokenness, plus me opening up to a greater, higher power and reconnecting with divinity, gave me a wholeness I never had. It gave me a new foundation. It’s not just a material foundation: it’s a soul foundation.” Read the full interview with Perry via the link in the bio. The issue goes on sale Monday, July 23.

“As I get older I dress with more ease and less effort – not that I dressed with lots of effort before, but there’s something about being in my 40s and really knowing the items that I want to own,” @yasminsewell tells Vogue's @alicebirrell of her current sartorial approach. “I also now like to clear out my wardrobe at the end of a season and start fresh wherever possible. I tend to have my looks of the season which are made up of what I want to wear depending on the weather … warm or cold my mood will change.” Sewell talks packing prowess and her foolproof fashion week formula via the link in the bio.

@gigihadid was only just starting to catch the eye of the international fashion scene when she covered our June 2015 issue. Not yet a household name, and definitely not the force of nature she is at present, the then 20-year-old model was on her way to big things. Fast-forward three years and Hadid is perhaps the biggest name in the fashion world. But even in 2015, the model wasn’t immune to the allure of Instagram fame. Speaking to Vogue’s Zara Wong (who also interviewed her for the July 2018 cover), Hadid was aware of her social pull, revealing that being a role model was one of her top priorities: “I feel like being true to the people who follow you is being a good role model, because they are following you for a reason, and I think that’s what you should stick to.” Now, with more than 40 million followers on Instagram, Hadid is back for another round, definitely all grown up this time.
