Our amazing October/November autumn issue starts hitting newsstands and mailboxes on September 12! Here's a peek at what you'll find inside...

Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes of Dance Moms? Show star Kendall Vertes gets real about all the drama, meddling mamas and, of course, Abby Lee Miller.

Back in black
There's something so magical about an LBD. Join the dark side in crafty cutouts, one-shoulder stunners and boho gowns that look awesome everywhere.

The sky's the limit
These days, lo-pros are a no-go. Instead, reach new heights in punchy platforms—these sneakers, boots, heels and mules will totally elevate your shoe game. Trust.

Social media starlet (and Kylie Jenner's bestie) Jordyn Woods gets honest about how she conquered her body hang-ups. Now, she's giving you her tips so you can find the same killer sense of confidence.

Velvet underground
Get a little touchy with this season's totally tactile trend: velvet. From dreamy jackets to bold boots and chic chokers to skinny scarves, this luxe look works for every occasion (uh, can you say Homecoming?!). 

Perfectly Peyton
Disney darling Peyton List knows what it takes to get a good photo: hours of hair and makeup, plenty of Photoshop and several outfit changes. Not exactly a confidence booster, huh? Despite that, P lets us in on why you should stay positive—and just forget the whole idea of #flawless.

Capture the castle
Command your court with fall's fiercest fashions in one enchanting setting full of lace, dark blooms, brocade and, of course, velvet. With these looks, the throne will be yours in no time—and long may you reign.

Beauty goes bionic
This season, we've got our sights set on space-age beauty. High-shine manis and mega-highlight will give you a stellar look that's, um, out of this world.

Buh-bye, boring strands
Longing for long locks? Want to rock a glitter part? If you've got the guts, we've got the deets on these (and more!) amazing hair dares.

#thatmomentwhen your BGF is actually your BF
You two have been besties forever. You share snacks at the movies (which he pays for), he's constantly showering you in compliments and he has no problem getting gushy. Find out if you two are just good friends...or something a little more than that. 

Quiz: Are you more trick than treat?
Being bold is totally cool, but there's a chance your share-everything attitude is coming off more spooky than sweet. (TMI, much?)

First date flubs—fixed!
We've got date ideas, ice breakers, emjoi wisdom and so. much. more. Yep, you can consider this your playbook to all things dating. 

Take a chil pill, babe
Are you still thinking about the convo you had with your crush last week, or the fight you had with your bestie yesterday? Learn how to say sayonara to the stress.

"Leave my phone at home?!"
Truth is, there's power in confronting your worst nightmares. This Halloween, tackle these 13 scary sitches that—spoiler alert!—might not be as scary as you think.

Speak up
Get all the feels. Rachel Layer survived a violent attack and attempted rape. Now, she's sharing her story—and encouraging all girls to seek their strength.

Pay a little mind
When the going gets tough, the tough get meditating. Teenage yoga instructor Skylar Dearen shares how mindfulness changed her entire outlook.

AKA: What would Beyonce do? For starters, she'd probably say "thank you." Do as the Queen does with these funny reminders and easy ways to stay humble this season.
