A recap of the story you totally clicked with on InStyle.com. Decades before Michelle Obama, there was Jackie Kennedy. The former FLOTUS epitomized glamour in the White House, so MIMI editorial assistant (and Kennedy obsessive) Roxanne Adamiyatt copied her primping routine for a week straight. “Jackie was a consummate perfectionist,� she says. Ready to channel the icon? 1. Spray on her signature fragrance, Joy by Jean Patou. 2. Apply Erno Laszlo cream extensively. 3. Keep your lipstick refreshed. 4.

;CJAMKC While September will always feel like back-to-school month, October is more like back-to-business. And our October issue has everything you need to get inspired, take action, and raise your game. First things first: our engaging cover story on First Lady Michelle Obama and her mission to educate girls around the world (p. 283). Mrs. Obama’s Let Girls Learn initiative has us energized—and ready to shop for a good cause. (Check out p. 169 for more on InStyle’s charitable partnership with designers like Prabal Gurung, Narciso Rodriguez, and Jason Wu in support of Let Girls Learn.) We also have dozens of ideas for elevating your office style. (Spoiler alert: One of them is the long vest from the new workwear line Suit on p. 54.) To streamline the purchase of these future closet staples, go to instyle.com/shop-october-2016. Then keep browsing on our just-launched Shopping channel (instyle.com/shopping), where you’ll see hundreds of our latest editors’ favorites. We know you’ll find a new obsession … or two … or five.

This custom Carolina Herrera dress was such a hit with the First Lady, she told our editors she may wear it to a White House party later this year.

A TALE OF TWO DRESSES InStyle fashion director Melissa Rubini worked closely with Mrs. Obama’s team to create two custom designs for our shoot, inspired by the runway looks above. LOOK 1 A rainbow-striped gown from Carolina Herrera’s Resort 2017 collection was replicated in a shorter navy and black version, sans the slit (top left).

SCORPIO

OCT. 23–NOV. 21 This month, nth th af a afterr the darling new moon appears only one day prior to the start of OctoO ber, think about what would make you u truly happy. Venus will move th hrough g Scorpio until the 17th, so your allure a e will be high. Use the first two weeks w s of the month to select new pie eces for your wardrobe. Venus will ssee to it that you find all the most flatttering g options. The full moon on the 15th 1 willl be a prankster and will arrive in n yourr sixth house of work projects. Tread T d carefully, for other people you’ll deall with mid-month will likely be fe eeling fragile too. The new moon in Scorpio S o on the 30th will be your time to shine. shine This is your annual birthday gift from a loving universe, and its energy can be directed any way you please.

SAGITTARIUS

NOV. 22–DEC. 21 Last month you put

a heavy emphasis on your career, but this month you’ll have more fun, meeting up with friends and enjoying romance. This trend is being set off by a gorgeous new moon on September 30, which will exert a strong influence through the 10th. You’ll have a memorable, exciting day when Mercury combines forces with Jupiter on the 10th or 11th (depending on your time zone). A romantic relationship might turn unexpectedly strange at the full moon in Aries on the 15th. That moon will conjoin Uranus, the planet that brings up unpredictable events. The month will end quietly with a new moon on the 30th, in Scorpio, ushering in a time to consider life and to make changes before your birthday arrives in a few weeks.

CAPRICORN

for your career, and it’s impossible to overstate the opportunities that will open up for you. The new moon of September 30 is one of the most perfect of the year to help you advance your career, so look to the days that follow for big meetings. You’re an ambitious soul and known to work hard and be smart, so news that you are about to see a reward for your fine past performance should be gratifying. Saturn, your ruling planet, will support your efforts to create long-term security.

AQUARIUS

JAN. 20–FEB. 18 Mars is currently

circulating in your behind-the-scenes sector, providing a greater ability for strategic thinking. It’s a perfect time to launch a new venture or to reveal a big idea. One week later, Mars will be in Aquarius, giving you courage and drive, setting the stage for applause, publicity, or a prestigious assignment. With Neptune so beautifully supportive, it

appears that discussions about your salary will please you. In the meantime, the 15th brings a full moon that may play havoc with your travel plans. Guard your health at this time too.

PISCES

FEB. 19–MARCH 20 For a long time, you’ve had to work with the blind faith that eventually the universe would help you be compensated in the way that reflects all the effort you’ve been devoting to your career. Your time will come in October as a result of a fabulous new moon, one of the best of 2016, that appears in your eighth house of other people’s money. Over the past year, you seem to have collaborated with one individual, and now the work you did together will pay off. As odd as this may sound, you may have a financial setback at the full moon on the 15th, when money news could be temporarily distressing. Don’t let this concern you, as your overall prospects for generating hefty chunks

ARIES

MARCH 21–APRIL 19 The last day of

last month, September 30, brought a new moon that will perfume the air in the first 10 days of October. Jupiter, the good-fortune planet, is also in this part of your chart for the first time in more than a decade, blessing your commitments, whether romantic or business in nature. Mars has just entered your career for a rare six-week visit in your house of fame and honors. The 15th brings a tricky, mixed full moon in Aries, strong for four days before and after it appears. Your need to feel free from the dictates of others will be especially intense. You might have your hands full. Keep your schedule light.

TAURUS

APRIL 20–MAY 20 Your professional

life is golden right now. Whether you are self-employed or work for others, you’ll be in a prime position to get the sweetest projects that come through the door. This trend will continue for a long time, beyond October and into the next year. You’ll have a strong focus on health and fitness from the start of the month onward for three weeks. You have a lot going for you, for your success will be related to your well-known Taurus dedication and consistency. By the year-end holidays you’ll be the envy of your friends on the dance floor, wearing your tiny black slip dress.

but it seems you will also have enough left over to pick up one or two luxuries and still put some funds aside to reach a financial objective.

CANCER

JUNE 22–JULY 22 Home means everything to the little crab, and if your space is not the way you want it to be, you’ll feel restless. You’re now in your very best year of the decade to find the living quarters of your dreams. You have Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, meeting the Sun and new moon in this important part of your chart. Your attention will quickly switch to your career on the full moon on the 15th. News won’t be what you are expecting, as Uranus, planet of surprise, will conjoin the moon and oppose the Sun. An authority figure seems to be putting you on the spot and making you feel fragile. Try seeing yourself as a protagonist in a movie— what would your character do next?

LEO

JULY 23–AUG. 22 Writing, speaking,

editing, negotiating, and all sorts of skills associated with communication will be front and center for you as you begin the month. The new moon that appeared on September 30 will

AUG. 23–SEPT. 22 You have hosted

Uranus in your eighth sector since 2011, bringing much up and down financial news. The coming year changes all that, for you are entering your most rewarding financial year ever. The new moon of September 30, coming just one day before the start of October, will kick off this trend. It will be vital for you to ask for a raise during the first week of the month, with your best days being the 3rd or 4th. The 10th will be fabulous too, for Mercury, your ruler, will conjoin Jupiter in Libra in your salary sector. Still, not all days will be perfect when it comes to money. The full moon on the 15th could bring unexpected news. For more of Susan Miller’s forecasts, go to astrologyzone.com.

GEMINI

MAY 21–JUNE 21 If you feel you’re missing romance in your life, you’ll find October divine. The new moon of September 30 will be strong in the first 10 days, and Cupid and his little fleet of angels will be zinging their arrows. One of the best days of the year will be the 10th or 11th (depending on your time zone), when Mercury will conjoin Jupiter in Libra for the first time in 12 years and bring you all kinds of happiness. For love, one of your best days will be the 26th, when Venus, in your partnership/marriage sector, will join forces with fortunate Jupiter. It’s a Wednesday, but be sure to plan something after work anyway. You’ll spend more money than usual this month,

be one of the sweetest of the year for these activities. Travel taken in early October will also be spectacular—choose a location not too far from home for relaxing, romantic fun. Jupiter will orbit in alignment to the Sun in the first week. The Sun is your ruler, so this week should be memorable and exciting, especially the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

LIBRA SAYS, “I BALANCE” Always charming, gracious, refined, polished, and up-to-theminute, Libra prefers to start a trend rather than follow one. Libra is called the arbiter of taste, for as an air sign, you analyze culture and are known to be bang-on when deciding what’s hot and what’s not. Your sign rules marriage, so, not surprisingly, Libra is always happiest when coupled up in a harmonious, settled union. At work, you also have a flair for making introductions to create strong business affiliations. Your year ahead You’re about to have the best birthday you have ever seen, as Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, entered Libra last month and will remain in your sign until October 10, 2017. It will be a year filled with good fortune and happiness. All Libras will likely take at least one awe-inspiring trip to a foreign country. You had to wait 12 years for Jupiter’s presence, and now that it’s here, think big! The plum has ripened on the tree, dear Libra—pluck it and hold it in the palm of your hands.

For its first scent collection in more than 70 years, Maison Louis Vuitton tasked in-house perfumer Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud with creating a “dream palette.” He returned with seven distinct essences ranging from intoxicating floral to subtly sweet to light leather. Now the only question is: Which will be your new fall signature?

llow me to begin this column with an answer to the question raised in its headline, which is no, not yet. But I ask about the future of fur for a reason. At no time in the past 19 years that I have been covering the fashion industry (believe it or not, I started on the fur beat at Women’s Wear Daily) have I seen so many prominent designers turning away from the use of traditional minks and sables all at once, and with surprisingly different explanations. The fall collections alone included several that incorporated fakes that looked remarkably real or even better than real. This was the case at Dries Van Noten, where the designer called to mind the Marchesa Luisa Casati, the eccentric Italian socialite, using imitation-leopard-spot coats, and also at Calvin Klein, where the womenswear creative director Francisco Costa, in what would be his final collection for the house, showed photo prints of lynx and skunk in the place of actual furs. And there was one major designer who went much further this season: Giorgio Armani, after 40 years in the business, announced that all his collections going forward would be fur-free. “My company is now taking a major step ahead, reflecting our attention to the critical issues of protecting and caring for the environment and animals,” Armani says. In Paris, I found myself in the Céline showroom shortly after the fall runway presentation in March, marveling at creative director Phoebe Philo’s latest, and was stunned when it was noted that she had actually created similar pieces with both real and synthetic skins. A blue lambskin coat was worn over a

Dries Van Noten has made playful work of faux furs in recent collections, including leopard spots that evoke the Marchesa Luisa Casati.

matching high-neck top made of matte vinyl, for example. Although she did not comment on her motive, Philo reminded me that many designers have done the same in recent seasons: As fake furs have shed their tacky image, they have become a new tool for experimentation. Six years ago, even Karl Lagerfeld, long associated with furs at Fendi, designed an entire Chanel collection using only faux. Many designers say their interest stems less from ethical concerns than from environmental, financial, or creative factors. But ethics, too, play a role in changing perceptions, as advocacy groups are gaining traction with campaigns that publicly embarrass companies whenever instances of extreme cruelty are uncovered. Case in point, the 2015 investigation into alligator farms used by Hermès prompted an outcry from Jane Birkin, who asked that the company stop using her name to promote its bags. (They later resolved the dispute.) In August the Business of Fashion blog revealed a closed-door meeting of top executives under pressure to cooperate with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) after it successfully coordinated a ban on angora by the world’s largest retailers, including H&M, Uniqlo, and Zara. While there has been a resurgence of real fur in designer collections over the past decade and a growing trade driven by

CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION

*%/)6 Animal lovers, rejoice! Designers are embracing materials that re-create the look of fur and feathers without all the guilt.

STELLA MCCARTNEY

DOESN’T SHED Calvin Klein himself swore off fur more than 20 years ago, after PETA protesters stormed his office. Francisco Costa’s last collection for the house for fall took an even more minimalist approach, incorporating hyperrealistic prints of skunk and lynx as a trompe l’oeil technique that’s guaranteed not to stink.

SOMETHING FISHY The British label Shrimps was founded by Hannah Weiland three years ago with a collection of wildly colorful fake furs that proved so popular, the designer expanded with a full line of ready-to-wear. ADDING MYSTERY Dries Van Noten has mixed fake and real furs for years, to the point where audiences are not always sure what they’re seeing. “That becomes the most intriguing way to make garments in fashion,” he told WWD last year.

DRIES VAN NOTEN

PUFF PIECES Stella McCartney’s response to the craze for puffer jackets was to make a version filled with synthetic down. “Fashion needs to embrace alternatives that are not only better for the environment and for animals but are also just better products,” she said in a profile in our August issue.

SHRIMPS

consumers in China, a case can be made that fur has reached a tipping point in fashion. Stella McCartney, whose commitment to cruelty-free design is a hallmark of her brand, argues that companies need to invest in new technologies that are more sustainable if they want to compete. “To me, it’s the only modern way to approach this industry,” she says. “Everyone now has to think about how to be more mindful in their business and how they design. There’s no need for real leather anymore— it’s actually one of the most harmful things environmentally.” McCartney leads by example, with furfree “furs” introduced in 2015 and, new this fall, puffer jackets filled with synthetic down. It has been over 20 years since PETA protesters stormed the offices of Calvin Klein to persuade the designer to go fur-free, but today social media and technology advancements are more effective tools, says Anne Brainard, PETA’s senior corporate liaison and manager of corporate affairs. “Science is making it easier for designers to forgo animal skins in favor of products that are cruelty-free,” she says, citing biofabricated leathers or vegan leathers made from bamboo, mushrooms, or pineapples, and silk made by a fermentation process like that of beer. Some of these methods use less water and chemicals than do earlier synthetics. “The future of fashion lies in innovative fabrics that don’t harm the planet or animals,” Brainard says. One of the most promising developments is a project from MIT Media Lab called Cilllia, a prototype for 3D-printed hair structures that may have many practical applications, from advanced robotics to wigs, hair extensions, and, yes, even furs that surpass anything nature has to offer. “It can be a new tool for fashion designers,” says research assistant Jifei Ou. “As each fur can be individually designed, it can provide unique aesthetics that natural hair cannot offer. If Cilllia would become a common tool for designers, hopefully it could help reduce the use of animal fur.” The big question for designers is whether fakes are here to stay or just another trend. McCartney, for one, cheers Armani’s new policy but worries others may embrace fakes only for a season. “We can’t just respond to what’s cool for the moment,” she says. “We need to respond to what’s right for the planet.”

Providing care for abandoned chimpanzees in Liberia PA S S I O N

Sisters Kate and Rooney Mara are known for their ability to transform into bold characters on-screen. But both actresses say the most radical life-altering experience they’ve had was facilitated by a chimpanzee named Bullet. The Maras recently returned from a trip with the Humane Society of the United States to Liberia, where they spent time nurturing Bullet and dozens of other chimps formerly used for medical testing by the New York Blood Center. After 30 years of conducting research on the chimps in Liberia, the New York Blood Center moved the animals out of its laboratory to isolated islands in 2004 and then withdrew financial support in March 2015, leaving the chimps struggling to survive. While the Maras say they respect the lifesaving work of the New York Blood Center, they wrote a petition imploring the organization to address the plight of these primates. “When you look into the eyes of these creatures, it’s impossible not to see a bit of yourself,” says Kate. “They have families and emotions, just like us.”

How They Got Involved “After watching the 2013 documentary Blackfish [about how the sea-park industry treats captive killer whales], I reached out to the film’s creators to see how I could raise awareness,” explains Kate. “The Humane Society asked me to present an award to the director, and I’ve been working with them on animal rights ever since.” When Kate was invited to Liberia, she says, “I wanted to bring Rooney because we’ve been fascinated with chimps since we were kids. This was an emotional experience that I can’t imagine sharing with anyone else.” Why It Matters The chimp colony lives on islands without natural food and water sources, so the animals rely on humans to provide nourishment. “They are used to being fed by people, so they come up to you and hold their hands out for food,” says Rooney. Thanks to the efforts of the Humane Society, the islands’ water systems are now working and the chimps get daily meals. The ultimate goal is to form a sanctuary that will allow the chimps to thrive while also creating jobs for Liberians.

YOUR BREAST HEALTH

3 WAYS TO REDUCE YOUR RISK We asked Elisa Port, chief of breast surgery at N.Y.C.’s Mount Sinai Medical Center and co-director of the Mount Sinai Dubin Breast Center, for some proactive lifestyle tips.

STAY AT YOUR IDEAL BODY WEIGHT “Obesity raises the chance of contracting so many diseases, and breast cancer is one of them,” says Dr. Port. “In the U.S., 30 to 40 percent of women fall into the obese category because of sedentary habits and the prevalence of fast food.” Calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI) on cdc.gov. Obesity is a measurement of 30 or more.

DRINK LESS Even moderate alcohol consumption has been linked to a 30 to 50

I n S T Y L E O C TO B E R 2 0 1 6

percent greater risk of developing breast cancer. “One to two drinks a day, every day, is too much,” says Dr. Port. Limit your intake to a maximum of four drinks a week, she advises.

TRY TO AVOID EXTRA HORMONES “Treating menopausal symptoms like hot flashes with hormone replacement therapy can stimulate the growth of cancer cells,” says Dr. Port. “While sometimes this treatment is essential, it’s important to make a mindful choice with your doctor and be aware of the potential effects.”

 &Cõ (PCô JESSICA CHASTAIN in MONSE

Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, the designers behind the red-hot label Monse, have made surprising stylistic twists their signature. To wit, this classic silk georgette column dress slowly unwinds to reveal panels of shimmering Swarovski crystals that are just as brilliant as diamonds. Chastain, an international brand ambassador for Piaget, wears fantasy pieces from the jeweler’s latest collection, called Sunny Side of Life. The necklace alone dazzles with more than 33 carats of diamonds.

Playing off his love for melding fashion, beauty, and theater, designer Marc Jacobs threw an indulgent L.A. dinner party to celebrate his Divine Decadence perfume. Tracee Ellis Ross, Rashida Jones, and Adriana Lima arrived while guests sipped Champagne, one of the main notes of the fragrance, and tuxedo-clad musicians played soft jazz. Ellis Ross and Ellen Pompeo raved about the caviar and oyster bar accented with clam-shell ice sculptures, and Angie Harmon was stunned by the extravagant décor. “When I first walked in, I gasped,” she said. Guests moved into the theater for dinner and broke into a round of applause as a red curtain rose and their dinner table slowly dropped from the ceiling onto the stage. —BRANDI FOWLER

THE DIARY

Managing the demands of a multifaceted fashion empire, plus handling family matters and throwing her Sunday-night Chinese dinner parties, leaves the designer with little time to unwind. But she always makes sure to enjoy a good night’s sleep. “The ability to relax amid the chaos is one of my greatest gifts,” she says. 7 AM

8 AM

Home time I wake up around 7 and spend the morning catching up on emails, texting, and reading anything I want to study closely. I’m on the phone with some of my top staffers to discuss business things that I don’t otherwise get to throughout the day. My favorite thing to eat for breakfast is an omelet with a little toast and maybe a slice—just one—of bacon. Oddly enough, lately I have also developed this thing for vanilla pudding packs. They’re all chemicals, I’m sure, but I love the taste, and they’re very filling until lunch.

10 AM

Laser focus Once I get to the office, it’s hard to describe a typical day—except for when we’re working on a show, and then the collection takes precedence over everything else. The nature of how much faster our business is today means I work on a very tight schedule, and this is when I collaborate closely with the design team.

11 AM

12 PM

1 PM

Soup or salad I rarely get to leave the office. Usually I work right through the entire day, even during the fitting of a dress on a model. But I think it’s important not to skip meals, so we order in for the team and eat in the design room or my office. I go through periods of Japanese for six months, or sometimes it’s a favorite Jewish deli for chicken soup with lots of vegetables. I love that in the winter because it just feels like it’s keeping you from getting a cold.

DETAILS, DETAILS I probably have seven meetings a day because I have to know what’s going on with every single thing we do, from sheets and towels to eyewear, home goods, and fragrances. I learned that very well from Ralph Lauren, who was my mentor. People might think that when you license your name, you just get a check, but that’s not the reality. You have to create a vision for all of these specific products and keep them consistent. The real work begins when you finish a dea deal.l..

5 PM

Buck stops here The day is pretty intense, with all the juggling and so many hats to wear. Because my company is privately owned and I am the CEO, all the responsibility of running it falls onto me, so I also have meetings about production, employees, leases, or how a certain division is doing financially. The pressure is very real, but it’s nice having your name on the door.

6 PM

Always on I try to leave the office at about 6, but prior to any collection, god only knows. Frequently, out of sheer paranoia, I’ll work Saturday and Sunday. We do one line every 12 weeks, between bridal and ready-to-wear. 7 PM

HAUTE ROAD TRIP 8 PM

9 PM

I’m slogging through a collection right now, and it’s rough, so I gave myself a teensy break to go to the couture shows in Paris. The designs are so elevated and beautifully made, and most of those houses actually sell their clothing to their clients. So much of ready-to-wear is just used to promote these days. Couture reminds me of the importance of creating.

High-rise booties for stair masters

Home life My daughters [Cecilia, 26, and Josephine, 23] have their own lives, so I try to catch up with them on Sunday nights when I have friends over and my cook does homemade Chinese food. I always hated Sundays when I was in school, so I thought this was a nice way to enjoy them. And during the week, there are so many events— you always feel like there’s something you have to attend.

DAILY MANTRA

Wang on her way to the Dior show

MY TIME ENGAGE I’m not a huge exercise person, but I love to play golf at Liberty National, in Jersey City, N. J., or at Atlantic Golf Club in the Hamptons if I happen to be out there. I’m terrible but enthusiastic. REVIVE Bathing, but not in the complicated ritualistic way of the Japanese, is one of my favorite things. It feels like a mini-spa. The other is having my hair blown out. I have such long, thick hair that some days I want to chop it all off. Sitting there is an annoyance, but at the same time, I am able to get a lot of work done. INSPIRE Art makes me think of things in a different way, intellectually and visually. I recently bought a Lucio Fontana painting that I had been looking at for years, and it has taken me another two months to figure out how to frame it, so that has been a whole issue. I’m fascinated to see so many people going to museums today. It’s encouraging that in a world of disposability, so many people are valuing permanence.

My father taught me to work hard and be patient, but Woody Allen gave me some advice too. He said, “Vera, after five or six hours, you are no longer productive,” and I said, “I have to work longer than you because I’m not Woody Allen!” Those are very different kinds of advice, and I pay attention to one but not the other.

atrick Dempsey’s spectacular home ofďŹ ce in Venice, Calif., is modern and light-ďŹ lled with all the amenities: gray angular couches, a kitchen appointed with top-of-the-line appliances, and a black Porsche parked in the drive. It’s a long way from his hometown of BuckďŹ eld, Maine, where Dempsey says he was a “country kidâ€? and worked at his father’s bottle recycling center. Back then, he says, he wore nothing but eece. Today his look is casual but sophisticated: a blue T-shirt, Buck Mason jeans, and John Varvatos sneakers. It’s been a year and a half since Dempsey’s character, Dr. Derek Shepherd, aka McDreamy, was killed off on Grey’s Anatomy after 11 seasons, but of late the actor has been busier than ever. He stars opposite RenĂŠe Zellweger in this month’s third installment of the beloved Bridget Jones franchise. His production companies have multiple TV and ďŹ lm projects in the works, and he’s stepped up his involvement with the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer, Hope & Healing, an integrative medical center in Maine that he opened after his mother’s death from ovarian cancer in 2014. And then there’s the car racing. Last year, Porsche ďŹ nanced his participation in a full season of the World Endurance Championship, and though it took him away from acting—and his family—for months, Dempsey says the experience was a “phenomenal education.â€? Humble, adorable, and hot in a uniform—no wonder he gets our hearts pumping. You’ve had all this success as an actor—how did you get so serious about racing?

I’ve always been into sports. I got sidetracked into performing! In high school my goal was to become an Olympic ski racer. Silly question, but why do you have to be in tip-top physical shape to drive a car?

When you’re going 180 miles an hour, you need to place a substantial amount of pressure on the brake to stop the car. You need upper body strength to control it at speed through a corner. And your neck is being pulled from acceleration and deceleration. The better shape you are in, the more aggressive you can be. And we’re driving six-hour races at minimum.

Do you consider yourself an adrenaline junkie?

It’s not the adrenaline, it’s the focus. I’m attracted to focus. How have your racing and acting careers coexisted over the past few years?

I kept turning down Bridget Jones because I was in the middle of my year with Porsche and had just ďŹ nished at Le Mans, where we podiumed [he placed second in class]. Every day I was in a car, testing and training, or running in a gym, so I had no desire to do any acting work at all. I spent a lot of time in the air, traveling, and in isolation in hotel rooms. At the end of the season I had to go back and reevaluate—what are my priorities now? All that intensity, focus, and commitment came at a tremendous cost to my family. So I needed to regroup and heal that. On that topic, what’s the secret to maintaining a long-term relationship?

Well, I don’t know—I’m trying to answer those questions! My wife and I have been together 20 years, and it’s been a challenging year to say the least. I think you just have to have a desire to keep working through issues that can seem insurmountable. At the end of a long race you have to push through to see where you end up—and sometimes you win just when you think you’re losing. Let’s talk about style. At what age did you start paying attention to clothes?

I grew up in a rural environment, so my exposure to fashion was limited; it was mostly L.L. Bean. It wasn’t until I got to New York at 17 that I started becoming far more conscious about what people were wearing. How would you describe the evolution of your look?

In my 20s, everything was Armani cut, with the big shoulders. In my 30s, it was all thrift store clothes. Now I wear a bit more color and gravitate toward classic pieces by John Varvatos and Ralph Lauren. If I’m feeling crazy, I might go to Tom Ford. What’s one item every man should splurge on?

Good shoes. My favorites are a pair of blue leather slip-on boots I bought in Italy. They have just a little bit of a heel. They’re handmade in Italy, and I love them. Are you a fashion hoarder or a purger?

I give a lot of my clothes away once I’m done with them. I try to support young, local designers, or buy pieces that are handcrafted or individually made. And I try to wear timeless things, like custom-made suits and leather jackets, so I can hand those down to my boys. â–

hristopher Kane is a fan of the macabre: Car crashes, decaying flowers, and even monsters have inspired collections that somehow uncover an unexpected beauty in dark things. Lately, though, since the death of his mother last year, his designs have also been tinged with sweet nostalgia. “All of my work is in some way autobiographical,” he says in a phone interview from his home in London. “And her passing made me dig deeper into the history of my childhood in Scotland.”

“I’m always pushing to get a reaction that’s not humdrum,” says Kane.

At your fall show, you mentioned something about looking at hoarders and outsiders. As a designer, what did you see in them?

in and let it affect you subconsciously. We live in strange times, but, hopefully, that will make us stronger people.

Yes, well, I’m not a follower of trends. I do something very emotive and personal. Having grown up in a small, provincial town, I have always been fascinated by people who create their own little fantasy world. Sometimes it’s about the idea of expired beauty or how people discard beauty as they get older. But just because they don’t look like everyone else doesn’t mean they aren’t as amazing.

Looking back at the past 10 years, how did you turn a family business, started with your sister Tammy, into the brand it is today?

You embrace what others would discard— leather that looks like cardboard and rain hats made of plastic.

It sounds kind of down in the dumps. But even the rose prints, which looked like they were tossed in a garbage bag, can also be seen as romantic. It could have been a lover lost, like she fell out with her valentine. Everyone does floral prints so much that they start to look the same. Flowers are not always meant to be in a vase. You have to take yourself out of your comfort zone to push things further. At Central Saint Martins, [the late professor] Louise Wilson told me there will always be someone better than you, someone skinnier and prettier, so you have to try harder. That competitiveness could be why London has such a reputation for producing great designers. Are you worried that the gloom of Brexit will impact creativity there?

I was completely against it. I can be rebellious on other issues, but I like being European, and I’m proud to be British. People saw this as a peasant revolt, but this feels like a very vulnerable situation. You can’t help but take it all

It’s not something you think about when you’re in the moment and working all the time. There is a sense of pride, but you also can’t remember many things that have happened, things that made you better or the mistakes that you’ve made. I don’t know good taste or bad taste, but I know it’s OK to be different. I want to become a household name, but I want to retain my integrity. It helps that you already have a popular handbag and a huge following among celebrities. Are you comfortable in that realm?

To be honest, I still get starstruck. The first time I met Donatella Versace, I thought she was a godlike creature. These women are placed on such high pedestals that I think k it must be really hard to maintain that lifestyle under all that pressure and still look really great. So I try to remember they are people. Dressing Anne Hathaway right after she had her baby was great. Her whole body looked amazing, and we wanted to embrace that Marilyn moment with a custom dress.

2. Low Cut Anne Hathaway matched the whimsy of a twisted floral dress.

With your own store in London and now e-commerce, what have you learned about customers in general?

A lot about what they gravitate toward, but you can never let that dictate design. People change like the weather these days. The whole point of fashion is to give them something they didn’t know they needed.

OVERNIGHT SUCCESS ON TV AND THE RUNWAY MADE HER A NEW STAR FOR THE TRANS COMMUNITY. NOW SHE JUST WANTS TO BE SEEN FOR HERSELF by ERIC WILSON

126

I n S T Y L E O C TO B E R 2 0 1 6

How do you introduce yourself to a stranger? I’m pretty shy, so there’s nothing I really lead with. I moved here five years ago as a theater major at Columbia University, and I don’t feel like myself anywhere else. If my narrative has to be a New York one, I’m OK with that. How did you break into fashion so fast? I did a theater internship, and it was awful, so I tried fashion, first at VFiles and then with Jennifer Venditti, the casting director. She needed me during Fashion Week, but I was helping my friends who were designers with their shows on the side, and she could tell I was distracted, so she fired me. She probably thought I had All About Eve’d her. I also worked for Fabien Baron, the creative director, where I was known as the intern who always fell asleep at her desk. It was right around when I started hormone-replacement therapy, and I was sleepy for the first six months. That’s when designers started asking you to model? I felt vulnerable about my body, so I had to kick my coping mechanisms into high gear and ask myself, “Are you going to be this sad little trans girl and miss out on all this stuff because you don’t like the way your body looks, or are you going to see where it goes?” It was just about me having this instinct, not understanding what my role was or why I was put on the planet. I followed the scent of something that smelled sweet until suddenly all these things fell into place. Did you learn anything that might be useful later in life? Drink water, eat vegetables, get some sleep. When you have an opportunity, or when you are invited to come up to bat, the only thing to think is that what you’ve got is what they want.

A job interview can be a defining moment in your professional life. The one thing you absolutely must bring is confidence. For that, wear something that makes you feel like the best version of yourself (in an appropriate way, of course). And you can’t go wrong with a perfectly pressed white shirt, whatever the office culture. Just remember to make it your own.

FOR A CORPORATE POSITION In a business environment, keep it simple. Take a crisp white shirt and team it with a sleek pencil skirt in black or a neutral. And always, always go for a closed-toe heel. This is not the moment to put your pedicure on display.

AT A CREATIVE COMPANY Don’t be afraid to show your individuality here. Make your outfit fun with a whimsical print. It can be a great conversation starter! I include one in each of my collections because it tells a story and reminds us that fashion should not be taken too seriously. Viscose crêpe dress, Ganni, $190; shopbop.com.

IN A CASUAL SETTING Even in a workplace where there are no rules, you still want to be professional and polished. Pair silk pajama-style pants with a well-fitted cashmere or cotton T-shirt. Also, have an eye for the details—a statement cuff or scarf shows that you’re chic. And if you plan to wear sneakers, make sure they’re scuff-free.

THE BOHO MAXI

Long, owy dresses are usually a summer staple, but I’m really into them for fall f l es too. Look for one with sleeves and a wrap cut that works on practically every body type. And don’t shy away from an allover print. I like an abstract pattern, but ďŹ nd one that makes you feel conďŹ dent. Finish with some leather booties and you’ve got a hot weekend outďŹ t.

THE UNEXPECTED LBD

The little black dress is a no-brainer. I should know—up until recently I had about 50 of them in my closet! Even though it’s a classic, that doesn’t mean it has to be plain. For my Dressbar line, I updated the design with sexy details, such as a strappy leather halter neck, a slit on the leg, and curved seams that hug in all the right places. For date night, just add diamond studs and simple black sandals.

THE POWER SHEATH

Every woman needs a dress that makes her feel as if she could take on the world. For the ofďŹ ce, stick to easy, streamlined shapes that you don’t need to constantly adjust to feel comfortable. Then invest in a beautiful work bag that will take the look to a whole new level.



THE SLEEK SWEATERDRESS The trick to pulling

off a sweaterdress is to buy one that’s long enough. This style is deďŹ nitely hip-hugging, so you don’t want it to ride up. If you’re worried about too much cling, layer shapewear underneath to smooth everything out.

Dresses are so versatile. The right one can make you feel powerful, trendy, or relaxed but still feminine.� 154

Coming to select Polo Ralph Lauren stores this fall (more retail partners will be announced in early 2017), the touch screen is transformed into a life-size tablet with one tap.

FASHION FA A DIRECTOR MELISSA RUBINI ON WHAT’S SPARKING HER #CURRENTMOOD

4 1

Outside Blenheim Palace in Dior

1-2 I spent a very glamorous 24 hours in Monte Carlo to view the latest in precious gems from Bulgari (those earrings!). As if the jewelry weren’t spectacular enough, the poolside dinner afterward featured a performance by synchronized swimmers. 3 Just the day before, I had taken the Orient Express from London to Blenheim Palace for Dior’s resort show. I don’t know which was more tempting, the clothes or the macarons served at tea. 4 Then it was off to Normandy for a vacation with my boyfriend. For the record: Château La Chenevière is the most romantic hotel, and the food is perfection.

GUCCI MANIA

7 5 Gucci held its resort collection extravaganza in London this season, and you could see a British influence in the wonderfully eccentric looks. My favorites? All those florals. 6 When my schedule gets crazy with traveling, I bring Sisley face oil with me. You apply it before bed and wake up with skin that’s completely replenished and fresh. 7 Going to Cuba for Chanel Resort 2017 was an amazing experience. Exploring the culture was eye-opening, and the show itself ended with everyone dancing in the street. Now, that’s a party!

When done in traditional black and red, uniform squares can skew too ’80s. A better move: softer tones, which pack just enough graphic punch without overwhelming. Loosen those right angles even more with a little something that’s “off,” be it coolly clashing stripes or a hem untucked just so.

Don’t let visions of your dad’s boring old sports coat throw you off. The alternating scale of small and larger checks creates instant visual drama. And since the print reads as relatively neutral from afar, it makes a fantastic foundation for working in more graphic patterns. Try breezy pieces for a feminine spin.

Distinguished by its jagged little shapes, this design has found fans in Sherlock Holmes and Christian Dior alike. We love the way it commands attention in bold black and white, making it an appealing option for the office, especially when you have a presentation or want to put in for that raise.

The equestrian set’s go-to pattern feels more high fashion than horsey when plush fur accents are involved. In warm caramel hues particularly, the mix reaches Margot Tenenbaum levels of nerdy-chic. Now all you need is loafers and a side part.

Tweed not your thing? Cleanly crisscrossed lines deliver tomboy vibes in a more modern way. Layer in a few slouchy, streetwise silhouettes and you’ve got a look that goes straight from Saturday night’s party circuit to pancakes and coffee the next morning.

She dominates our Thursday nights and has introduced us to some of television’s most powerful female characters (we’re looking at you, Meredith Grey, Annalise Keating, and Olivia Pope). But Rhimes, an introvert at heart, says that learning to be the boss hasn’t always been easy. “I went from being a movie writer who worked from home in my pajamas to a TV writer who had 300 people asking me what to do,” she says. “I had to learn how to be in charge, and it did not go so well at the beginning. It took me a while to really understand that power is not power if you don’t embrace it. If there’s nobody truly steering the ship, it’s a recipe for chaos.” Here’s how she navigated that boat straight into ShondaLand. Have the Hard Conversations “The biggest mistake I see people make is failing to address uncomfortable topics. Too often we avoid saying the things that really need to be said, and the problem with that is twofold: It wastes a ton of time in a work environment, and it puts unnecessary stress and strain on everybody involved. If you were to approach the topic right away, you wouldn’t waste time worrying about it, wondering what the answer will be, and thinking about what you’re going to say. Whether the conversation involves telling your boss that you want a raise, telling your employee that he or she is not doing a good job, or telling a colleague that he or she offended you, the difficult conversation often solves the problem on the spot. Just be sure to be respectful on every level.” Act As Though You Belong in Every Room “No matter where you’re sitting, whether it’s the

CEO’s office or the lowest person on the totem pole’s cubicle, behave like you fit in that space. You have to appear comfortable, because there’s nothing worse than going into a meeting where you are visibly nervous—the other person will start to think that you don’t deserve to be there. If your superiors or the people who work for you see that you’re hesitant, guess what they’ll start to think? That you don’t understand them.” Own Your Power—and Your Mistakes “Leadership is useless if you’re not leading. It did not come naturally to me to be the person standing in front of everyone heading up the charge. I would much rather be in the corner of the room reading a book. I’ve learned not to fear mistakes or regret them when something goes wrong. If things get off track, treat the obstacle as a different direction you’ve been sent in versus a stop sign.” Realize That There Is No Secret Recipe “Everyone always thinks somebody else knows something they don’t. Let me fill you in on a secret: Nobody knows anything. I’m constantly encountering people who say that they wish they had it as together as I do, but the reality is that there’s nothing special that people in high positions know. We’re all working with the same tools, so just take chances and go for it.”

MASTER HER MORNING ROUTINE Sorry, snoozers—when your days are as packed as Rhimes’s, a few quiet, meditative moments in the morning outweigh 10 more minutes in bed. Here’s what gets this powerhouse up and running each day. 5:30 A.M. “Unless I’m totally exhausted, I wake up at around 5:30 so that I can have an hour and a half to myself before my children get up. It’s important to have a little time to just exist before anyone else is awake. Sometimes I use this time to write in my journal, but sometimes I just sit and stare out the window.”

LISTEN BEFORE ACTING “Something that I’ve seen my mom do is always start by listening. Most of us who are lucky enough to work on big problems are not living many aspects of those issues, so you have to spend a lot of time listening to learn what the real barriers are.” NEVER STOP LEARNING “Sometimes young professionals think we have a lock on wanting to translate our passions into meaningful work.

Clinton is, without a doubt, a woman with a global footprint. On the presidential campaign trail with her mother and in her role at her family’s foundation, she works to achieve international health reform, increase opportunities for women, reduce childhood obesity, and help communities affected by climate change—all while raising, with husband Marc Mezvinsky, her own brood: 2-year-old daughter Charlotte and 3-month-old son Aidan. (She planned this interview around her breast-feeding schedule.) Take Clinton’s tips for getting it all done without compromising family time—or promptly written thank-you notes.

month, setting goals for everything I hope to get done for work, friends, and most importantly, family. My husband recently told me to own up to my type A–ness in the need for a schedule, even if the schedule has shifted since we’ve had kids. I now try to clean out my in-box and write thank-you notes every 48 hours instead of each day. I try to talk to my closest friends at least once a month and more often if we all have the time; it’s harder now that most of us have little kids.” Indulge in Family Time “Even though I plan my days as best I can to maximize time with my kids, I try not to think of them as something to be managed. I am fortunate to have some control over my schedule, so I organize my day so that I can soak up my time with Charlotte and Aidan in the morning or at night if both morning and night aren’t an option that day. We have endless research about how important it is that children are connected to their parents–it’s why it’s so important we work toward paid family leave, predictable scheduling, a living wage, and child-care support.” Emphasize the Little Details “Ever since I was a child, my mom has instilled in me that details really matter. No matter how busy you are, you have to understand as much as possible about whatever challenge you’re confronting and what you’re going to try to do to overcome it. If you don’t get the details, you’ll miss something.” Stay Motivated After Meeting Your Goals “One of the hardest things is maintaining focus after you’ve already accomplished something. View what had previously been an end goal as an interim step—I find that humbling and energizing.”


TURN ANY WORKSTATION INTO A SANCTUARY “Surround your desk with items that make you feel at home,” says Saint John. “It’ll help you feel inspired and alive.”

SCENT YOUR SPACE “I love candles. I’m obsessed with aromatherapy. I always have something burning.

Before you wrap up a meeting with Saint John—the self-proclaimed “bad mama jama” charged with reinventing Apple’s entertainment strategy after the company acquired Beats—you will receive at least one high five. “It’s a great source of excitement,” she says. “And if I’m not having fun at the office, then the consumers we’re trying to reach aren’t having fun either.” Generating buzz around Apple Music is Saint John’s endgame (Beyoncé’s 2013 Superbowl halftime performance? Yup, that was her), but on a daily basis she aims to create a positive, inspiring work space for her team of music-industry insiders.

HAVE A SOFT LANDING “I have a furry white throw rug from One Kings Lane on my floor—there’s nothing more important than comfort, and it gives off a cozy vibe.” PLAY SOME TUNES “For finding peace and getting inspired, I listen to my J.S. Bach Essentials playlist. But if I’m getting pumped up to go out after work, I switch to Zane Lowe’s World Record playlist.” (Stream both at applemusic.com.)

Don’t Separate Your Personal Style from Your Work “I truly believe that all aspects of your life are interconnected and you should embrace that rather than try to fight it, because that’s what makes you genuine. Rather than adopting a ‘business persona,’ allow your personality to be reflected in the way you dress for the office, the way you answer emails, and the way you conduct yourself in meetings and on social media. I tweet and Instagram just the way I talk, so what you see is what you get when you meet me in person.” Be a Professional People Watcher “I am a constant observer of others, and peoplewatching is my all-time favorite activity, regardless of whether I’m in a café in Paris or sitting in my office. I don’t just observe appearances but also ideas and conversations—even conversations that I’m not a part of. My ear-hustle game is strong. I get so much inspiration from what those around me are doing, saying, and thinking.” Balance the Heavy with the Hilarious “At the end of every team meeting, I leave five minutes to celebrate each other. Work meetings can feel heavy—they are filled with tasks that need to be accomplished and challenges that need to be faced, so complimenting your colleagues on something they’ve worked on or produced is a way of injecting some happiness into an otherwise routine gathering.” Make a Brag List “There’s no room for copycats, so I think it’s important that you bring your own personal brand to the table. Sit down and make a list of three or four things you love about yourself that you can bring to your job. Then you’ll always have something positive and unique to highlight when you’re interviewing for a position, talking to your boss, or pitching ideas to others. If that’s not Monday motivation, then I don't know what is.”

She turned a lifetime of combating frizzy curls into a lucrative business plan, then went from stay-at-home mom to fairy hairmother of more than 60 Drybar locations. Between crafting clever new cocktail-inspired products for her blowout-only salons and penning her first book, The Drybar Guide to Good Hair for All (available October 18), Webb filled us in on what it took to become the biggest disrupter in the beauty biz. Oh, and her own formerly unruly locks? Totally on point. Find a Void “I’ve been a professional hairdresser since age 25. But in 2008, after raising my kids full-time for five years, I began offering women in my neighborhood at-home blowouts for only $40. I got really busy, really fast. Clients would tell me that if I couldn’t come to them, they had nowhere to go for a blowout other than full-service salons that overcharged them. And I remember hearing older women talk about going to the salon once a week to get coiffed so they didn’t have to worry about it for a few days. I decided to merge those two ideas to target modern women who want on-trend styles without a full-service salon.” Have a Signature “A lot of new businesses don’t put enough emphasis on branding, and ultimately that’s what gets customers in the door. People told me that my cocktail theme was cheesy, but guess what? It’s recognizable and consumers remember it. When I think about other concepts I love, like SoulCycle, Sprinkles Cupcakes, and Glossier, they all have one thing in common: a clear, instantly recognizable message.” Work Backward “Have a target date for when you want to open a business, launch a project, or unveil an idea. Then make a list of things that need to happen right away and things that can wait. Schedule the latter for closest to your target date and get started on the former as soon as you can. I’m obsessed with the app Wunderlist, which lets you create and share to-do lists so that everyone you’re working with can see what has been accomplished and what still needs to get done.” Partner with People Who Have Different Skills “No one is a jack-of-all-trades. Even if you’re the best businesswoman on the planet, there will be

My co-founders are my husband, who has an advertising background, and my brother, who has a marketing background. None of us would be able to run this business with even one person out of the equation. As you or your brand continues to grow, you have to recognize who you need to keep expanding.”

Webb, whose book ($25; amazon.com) hits this month, has you covered with these tips for giving your do new life without leaving your desk. AMP UP THE VOLUME “Spray our Mai Tai Spritzer onto your roots, then use your fingers to tease the hair surrounding your part.” TAME YOUR ENDS “Your hair is the frame for your face, so if you

don’t have time to get a blowout, touch up your ends to make that frame even sharper. Apply a few dabs of The Chaser Shine Cream to your fingertips, then twist small sections of your hair around your fingers to add definition.”

Or get a good-quality camera and take photos of your DIY arrangements. Also, create parallels between your current job and this new opportunity—if you’re good at analyzing data, think about how that might apply across the board.” Use Social Media to Your Advantage “Chances are an employer will look at your feeds, and you can make a convincing case for yourself if you’re tweeting thoughtful articles with enticing summaries of why someone should read them or Instagramming beautiful photographs that are relevant to your industry,” says Kerr. “Showing what kind of individual you are in the most elevated way is like free marketing for yourself. On the flip side, know who you’re talking to before going into an interview. It may feel overly personal for a prospective candidate to send me a direct message on Snapchat, but if they reference something I’ve been tweeting during the interview, it shows me that they are engaged with our brand.” Quantify Your Worth “If you’re going for a raise or a new job, show the impact that you’ve made at an organization,” says Power. “I love when résumés give me cold, hard facts. You cannot argue with numbers that highlight accomplishments at various companies. It’s much more impressive than reading a wordy description.” Tailor Your Résumé to Every Job Description “Yes, there are a lot of skills that translate to many different industries, but it’s important to customize your résumé for the particular job you’re applying for,” says Kerr. “The days of having a one-size-fits-all résumé are gone, so make sure every single one you send out is optimized for the position.”

Incredibly popular in Asia, this ombré effect shows off the dark berry hues of fall in a fun, fresh way. Here’s how to do it: First tap a bit foundation over lips. Then use your finger to press a deep stain or cream into the center of both lips. With your fingertip, spread the formula outward from the middle so it diffuses completely before you hit the outer edges. Apply a touch of highlighter over the Cupid’s bow and underneath the center of your lower lip. Rookie Mistake to Avoid Do not attempt on dry, chapped lips. De-flake with a toothbrush; if deep lines are still visible after you finish “staining” lips, tap on a waxy balm (like Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Lip Repair Balm, $24; elizabetharden .com) to fill in the cracks.

Makeup artist Dominic Skinner got the idea to “chrome” cheeks over a year ago in Miami. “I saw a car covered in a metallic chrome wrap,” he says. “I couldn’t take my eyes off the reflections that bounced off its surface. I had to figure out how to do that on a face.” The answer was lipstick. To nail the look, start by moisturizing your skin, then work concealer over areas of discoloration. For extra wattage, you can massage in a layer of sheer luminizing liquid. Then grab a frosted lipstick (go for silver if you have fair skin, champagne if you’re darker). “Draw it straight across your cheekbones, from your temples down to the middle of the apples,” says Skinner. “Sweep a contouring brush up and down your cheeks until the edges blend seamlessly into the skin.” Rookie Mistake to Avoid Don’t go for the glitter. You want “a fine metallic frost within a cream to produce a smooth, clean, metal-like shine that’ll reflect light from all angles like a mirror,” he says.

First get your smoky eyes done. Then deposit a healthy dose of loose translucent setting powder around your makeup (we’re talking visible piles here). Let the dust settle for a few minutes while you buff in your foundation and gloss your lips. Then take an oversize brush and flick away the excess. The powder that’s absorbed will create a barrier and keep your look from going south. Rookie Mistake to Avoid Allowing the powder to set for too long could alter the color of your concealer.

Consider it the happy medium between bronzing and contouring. This method ensures you get a totally believable glow, plus a little lift in the cheekbone department, says London makeup artist Lisa PotterDixon. Dip a foundation brush in some bronzer, then place it on your temple. Sweep the brush across the top of your cheekbone, over the bridge of your nose, across the other cheek and up to the opposite temple, Potter-Dixon says. “Use a large, fluffy brush for an even subtler effect,” she says. “It won’t deposit too much product or leave any lines of demarcation.” Rookie Mistake to Avoid Stick with a matte bronzer; if you use a shimmery one, says Potter-Dixon, “you’re not going to get a natural look.”

Turns out fallen arches are a good thing. “Linear brows bring a youthful appearance,” says Kate Mara’s makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell. “A tapered end coming straight out actually lifts the eye more than a traditional arch.” The pro suggests using a pencil (which gives you better definition than powder) to sketch short, light strokes along the bottom of brows to form an unbending shape. At the tails, pull the pencil outward—don’t end in a curve. Dab concealer underneath to camouflage hairs that grow in a downward direction.

I was like, “No. This is supposed to be the late 1800s. Red hair would’ve been most alluring back then. Blond is what you think is commercially attractive now.” We went red.

That actually sounds chic—the Calvin Klein minimal look. Now, absolutely. But back then I

nitely. I’m a massive meat eater. If I don’t have a steak once a week, I crave it. So, at the Met Ball earlier this year, they were serving lamb, and I think the waiters saw my blond hair and assumed I was vegan or something. They skipped over me and gave me fish. I had to stop them and say, “Excuse me. No thanks on this fish. I’ll take the lamb!” —KAHLANA BARFIELD BROWN

Well, now you’ve mastered the natural, glowy look. Lately, I’ve been trying to style my makeup

and hair in a way that looks like I could’ve done it myself. I realized that anything harsh ages me.

7íRFGLE RFC 7÷LE MD ÖMQ?AC? HOW CAN I TELL IF IT’S ROSACEA OR JUST REDNESS? While all rosacea sufferers have sensitive skin, not all those with sensitivity have rosacea: “The difference is that rosacea patients get red and stay red often for hours on end,” says Mt. Kisco, N.Y., dermatologist David Bank. Rosacea is a chronic condition caused by inflammation of blood vessels, which in turn causes skin to be highly susceptible to internal and external triggers that prompt vessel dilation. The lingering flush is often accompanied by a burning sensation that can develop into itchiness. More extreme cases are marked by broken capillaries, bumps, and pustules. Bottom line: If your redness is fleeting and without further symptoms, chances are your skin is reactive but not rosacea-ridden.

WHAT CAUSES FLARE-UPS?

When your body overheats, your vessels dilate in an effort to direct blood d closer to the surface of your skin, which helps cool you down. This process causes immediate redness that can prompt a flush in rosacea patients that lasts for hours. So try to avoid heat-generating spicy foods, red wine, and hot beverages, which all may trigger dilation. External factors like wind and the sun’s rays can have the same effect, so apply a mineral SPF daily. A lotion works best if you’re going barefaced, whereas a water-like fluid can be mixed with your foundation for a seamless finish.

7íRFGLERFC7÷LE MDÖMQ?AC? IS THERE A LONGTERM FIX?

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO TREAT IT ON MY OWN?

Provided your rosacea hasn’t progressed into pustule territory (which should be treated by a doctor), N.Y.C. dermatologist Joshua Zeichner suggests upgrading your daily moisturizer to one with gentle, calming botanical extracts, such as chamomile and licorice root. Even better if your hydrator packs niacinamide, an ingredient proven to strengthen the skin barrier, which helps reduce flareups. And don’t forget to supplement with your daily dose of sunscreen. If you’ve got bumps and broken blood vessels too, see a doctor, who can prescribe a topical solution to address more severe inflammation. La Roche-Posay Rosaliac AR Intense, $40; laroche-posay.us.

YES

Yes. “With lasers we can visibly improve rosacea symptoms by up to 90 percent,” says Jeffrey Dover, associate professor of clinical dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine. He prefers a pulsed dye laser, which works by destroying inflamed blood vessels with light energy to subdue redness. For optimal results, Dr. Dover recommends a series of around six treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, then a yearly touch-up to keep symptoms in check. It’ll run you about $600 per session, he says.

WILL IT GET WORSE AS I AGE?

Collagen deteriorates with age, weakening the skin barrier and leaving it more prone to flare-ups. A daily cream with barrier-boosting ceramides can help.

In this bright white-on-white salon located in the lobby of TriBeCa’s hip Roxy Hotel, you’ll find stylist, founder, and hair genie Joey Silvestera. “I showed him a picture of model Alessandra Ambrosio,” says our tester, “and he said, ‘I can give you that exact cut,’” and he did just that. After a shampoo in the fivechair space, Silvestera (who kept a positive atmosphere, complimenting our reporter’s previously waist-reaching haircut) snipped the length and face-framing layers before blow-drying. Once hair was dry, he “edited” the cut: “He asked if I wanted it fuller on the bottom,” says our tester. “But since my hair tends to hang heavy, he trimmed into the edges instead.” Back in the Roxy lobby in under an hour, our tester had time to enjoy the live band before taking her new below-the-shoulder waves out for the night.

MARE SALON

LOS ANGELES

This gray bungalow with black trim in West Hollywood announces its design cred right away, with Shepard Fairey and Warhol pieces perched for sale on its gallery-white walls. But what put our tester immediately at ease was her stylist, Dax Sarmiento, who seemed to “intuitively get the casual vibe I was going for,” she says. “He understood that I wanted to use very little product every day.” Getting busy post-shampoo, Sarmiento sectioned hair then meticulously trimmed ends to remove weight from the bottom, spritzing a conditioning hair mist as he worked. After a coat of hydrating oil and a blow-dry, the stylist let loose his perfectionist streak, micro-cutting ends and refining the allover shape. Our tester left with hot-ironed waves rendered perfectly beachy thanks to Davines This Is a Sea Salt Spray ($28; us.davines.com).

CAPELLA SALON 12930 Ventura Blvd., #216; 818-784-4247.

No stranger to professional chops at curl-centric salons like those from Carol’s Daughter, Devachan, and Ouidad, our tester swears this snip was one of the best she’s ever received. “I’ve never had anyone take such special care with my cut,” she says of co-owner Shai Amiel, who prepped our reporter with pre-appointment instructions (arrive with product-free strands). Inside the glass-front salon, situated on a quiet upper level of a Studio City mall, Amiel worked first on dry hair, taking a single lock at a time, twisting it slightly then snipping to reshape what he discovered was a slightly lopsided mane. His ringlet-byringlet approach, combined with shampoo and productcocktailing advice (with Capella’s stock of DevaCurl blends), took two and a half hours. The payoff was that magical melding of

Passing on any bleach for our tester’s hair (“It can get brassy,” she says), Kazumi worked with laser-like precision to add warm caramel highlights that would “melt right in” to our reporter’s dark mane. While our tester sipped matcha green tea, Kazumi enhanced the subtle shift with a few well-placed foils. After 30 minutes under the dryer, the hair was strengthened and softened with an additional cocktail of keratin, collagen, and protein. Our tester, post–wavy blowout, was thrilled with her “I spent three weeks in Hawaii” look.

If we’re suckers for snacks ks (this TriBeCa find serves

sweet and savory, with a drink menu that includes champers), we also love a salon that doesn’t shy away from a challenge. Our tester wanted to cover her “prominent dark roots” and go blond—very blond—but not by way of a uniform dye job. After an in-depth consultation, co-owner David Adams got busy on a full head of highlights, working in micro-sections and without heat, to paint on multidimensional color that wouldn’t damage strands. (The staff is big on hair health, using natural Aveda elixirs and often analyzing a new client’s scalp with a magnifying camera to tailor product picks.)

Calling it “one of the coolest salons I’ve ever been to,” our tester talked up this SoHo spot’s West Coast vibe and industrial décor with wood floors, exposed brick, and “blow-dryers hanging from the ceiling on pulleys.” Also of note: You’re asked to don a black T-shirt in lieu of a cape. But if the rough-hewn hipness made an impression, it was the subtle glow of “baby lights” by pro Colleen Flaherty that earned the loudest shout-out. Working in mini-sections around our tester’s face as well as throughout her head, Flaherty expertly lightened her brunet base without overreaching and with nary a line of demarcation. Our tester loved how the realistic results “warmed my skin tone and made me look a little bit tan.” REGULAR PRICE: Starting at $100 INSTYLE DEAL: Starting at $80

You may spot guests meditating in a room made of Himalayan salt blocks or relaxing in a Korean Hwangto Clay room, both of which feature infrared-heat technology to promote detoxification of the skin and lungs. But back to that massage: After a hot soak and a salt body scrub, “my technician gave me a mini-facial, cleansing with a Clarisonic brush and topping with a hydrating mask,” says our tester. “She applied hot vitamin E and avocado oils to condition skin then massaged from head to toe, focusing on lymph nodes to encourage lymphatic drainage.

The space offers treatments like an anti-acne facial with bacteria-busting blue LED and, our tester’s pick, the 30-minute Mom-toBe special. Soothed by the fact that it doesn’t include controversial ingredients (retinol and benzoyl peroxide, for example, are typical no-no’s while expecting), our tester relaxed under a fruit-enzyme exfoliation and hydrating vitamin B5 mask. After an antioxidant serum and a dose of pure oxygen, she left with a glow “that had previously eluded me during my pregnancy,” she says.

Boobs. No two are exactly alike (even on the same person). That’s why we’ve scoured the market to bring you the bras that won’t ever let your girls down, whatever the need.

Best for MINIMIZING

Best for LIFTING

Two-ply seamless cups reduce the appearance of your bust by up to 1½ inches, while the tall back and sides smooth as a bonus.

Look for underwire and cups that have cushioning along the base, which creates a shelf of sorts. The result is subtle, not supersize.

A front closure makes it easier to get on and off with restricted movement, and the supersoft eco-friendly jersey provides comfort. It also fits spacers and implants.

Switch up the straps to accommodate halter, racerback, strapless, and one-shoulder necklines— though if you’re going backless, adhesives are your best bet.

Chafing = the worst. Stop it and other irritation with a hypoallergenic band lined with a special silicone that uses your body heat to stay in place.

Your motto: Never enough padding. Built-in cutlets push you up from the bottom and sides, and demi coverage allows you to flaunt the effect.

3L *-87Ā 1-77)7 As the oft-quoted statistic goes, over 64 percent of women are wearing the wrong bra size. This results in all kinds of complications, not to mention the things that can go awry even if you do have your number right. Here’s how to fix the most common annoyances for a tug-, pull-, and fidget-free day.

Great for HALF-SIZES Traditional cup sizes not working for you? Enter ThirdLove. Those with uneven or different-size breasts will find some excellent options here. (thirdlove.com)

PROBLEM: Front and/or side spillage SOLUTION: Go up a letter and see if that helps. If not, the shape might be too narrow for your breasts and you’ll need to try a design with wider cups.

PROBLEM: Slipping shoulder straps SOLUTION: Try tightening them—they do stretch out over time—but if that’s not working, explore different styles for your body. Women with sloping shoulders will

want a bra with a U-shaped ballet back, which has straps that fit closer together. Racerbacks are also a good option.

PROBLEM: The cups crease SOLUTION: No doubt about it, the fabric in your bra is breaking down, either from normal wear and tear or from being put in the dryer. It can also be a sign that the material wasn’t very good quality in the first place, so invest in something a bit more substantial the next time around.

A look from Negative Underwear

PROBLEM: The center doesn’t lie flat against the sternum SOLUTION: There are several tweaks to make when the piece of fabric between your breasts isn’t holding fast. First, go down one band size or up one cup size. Didn’t do the trick? Opt for a plunge bra with a narrower center front.

While nothing beats a professional in-store fitting, more and more sites that cater to the hard-to-find are making a tempting case for shopping online. Bookmark them stat and let the bedroom try-on marathon begin (and don’t worry, they’ve all got generous return policies). Great for MINIMALISTS If you like your coffee black and your apartment décor spare, Negative Underwear (below) is your new go-to, specializing in lightweight designs devoid of frills. (negativeunderwear.com)

PROBLEM: Gaping cups SOLUTION: It’s not the most obvious fix, but try tightening the band. That will cinch the wire firmly under the breast tissue, bringing the cup closer to your body.

PROBLEM: The band rides up in back SOLUTION: Eighty percent of a bra’s support comes from the band, says Victoria’s Secret executive vice president Monica Mitro, so it’s important to replace yours when the elastic wears out. If the band on a new purchase is sliding up, try loosening the straps or going to a tighter hook—otherwise, you’ll need to buy a smaller one. “You know you’re in the right size when you can put two fingers underneath the back and it’s very snug on the loosest hook,” says ThirdLove co-founder Heidi Zak.

THEN 1800s After four centuries of little change, France’s Herminie Cadolle revolutionizes the corset by dividing it into two parts. Dubbed the corselet gorge, or corset bra, it supported breasts with straps, while the bottom half slimmed the waist. By 1905, Cadolle was selling the top halves separately.

1910s American socialite Caresse Crosby débuts what many call the first modern bra. Patented in 1914, it was made from two handkerchiefs with ribbon sewn on for straps and another that tied at the waist. It provided little support, says Colleen Hill, associate curator at the museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, but it was better than a corset.

1930s The flimsy, flattening bandeaux of the ’20s give way to more voluptuous, supportive styles—now officially called bras—made for the first time with synthetic fabrics like rayon stretch satin. To help women find a better fit, cup sizes are introduced in 1932.

1950s Launched in 1949, the pointy Chansonette bra (also known as the bullet bra) is now fashionable in Hollywood, and it’s not long before the rest of America catches on. Nylon becomes a popular fabric.

1970s Women say good-bye to the exaggerated molds of the past four decades, opting for more comfortable, unstructured designs, including the first sports bra. Called the jog bra, it was made from two jockstraps sewn together.

NOW 2010s Today’s bust supporters are all about ease as more women eschew the structured bras of decades past in favor of those that offer a more natural shape, catapulting pareddown bralettes (a go-to for It girls Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner) and sportier styles to new heights of popularity.

2000s A period of rapid innovation introduces an onslaught of new forms, including molded cup bras made of thin stretch foam and selfadhesive silicone cups designed for backless tops and dresses. Women with bigger cup sizes are given some much-needed attention—thanks in part to Oprah—as sizes above a D are introduced en masse.

1990s The mania for push-up bras continues as plunging necklines become trendy. In what will become an iconic style moment, Madonna wears a pointed cone bra designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, which fetched $52,000 at auction in 2012.

1980s Though first patented in 1893, the push-up bra didn’t begin to dominate fashion until the 1980s (hello, Wonderbra), when “body-conscious fashions emphasized the figure in a new and revealing way,” says Hill. “Push-up bras helped create an idealized feminine figure.”

Cleopatra is said to have slathered her skin with spoiled milk (full of lactic acid) to get glowing. While not a new concept, using acids to shed superficial layers and reveal a more radiant surface can be tricky: Some formulas gently dissolve dead cells; others tackle dark spots and fine lines but require considerable downtime.

Professional peels are not a one-strength-ďŹ ts-all type of service. There are roughly three levels of treatment. Each handles diďŹ&#x20AC;erent issues and involves a diďŹ&#x20AC;erent degree of recovery. Pinpoint your problem areas and ďŹ nd a solution to discuss with your doctor. PROBLEM

YOUR SOLUTION

THE FINE PRINT

For more superďŹ cial conditions, a low dose of glycolic, lactic, mandelic, or salicylic acid can exfoliate the surface without major irritation. A cocktail of two or three of these can address multiple issues at once: For example, glycolic and salicylic acids may be combined to boost radiance and clear out pores so they appear smaller. These peels typically cost about $50 or more and require virtually no downtime (though vigilant sun protection afterward is necessary).

SuperďŹ cial peels are usually not a one-and-done proposition: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In an ideal world my patients would come in for a light peel every month to maintain a healthy glow,â&#x20AC;? says Neal Schultz, a New York dermatologist and founder of the Beauty Rx Peel Bars (beautyrx.com). For acne, a series of four to six peels, spaced two weeks apart, may be recommended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To tackle dullness, I suggest coming in whenever your skin starts to look drab,â&#x20AC;? says N.Y.C. plastic surgeon Michelle Yagoda.

ENLARGED PORES

In a concentration of 10 to 35 percent, trichloroacetic acid (commonly referred to as TCA) can be used to treat deeper, more severe sun damage, ďŹ ne lines, and enlarged pores. It may also be used in conjunction with brightening glycolic acid. This kind of service can go for $200 or more, but prices vary widely, with some medium peels approaching $1,000. You may also experience redness, swelling, and peeling in the 10 days to follow. A DEEP PEEL

Phenol or TCA at around 50 percent can also be used to improve the appearance of deep lines, skin laxity, and severe sun damage. The price hovers at around $500 or more, and if you opt for anesthesia, the cost will jump into the thousands. Count on up to two weeks of shedding skin and redness post-treatment; it may take six weeks for the skin to reach its brighter, tighter-looking pinnacle.

While one session may be enough to see a more even, smoother-looking complexion, keep in mind that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now aďŹ&#x20AC;ecting skin down to the more delicate papillary dermis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Medium and heavy peels should be performed only by a doctor, not an aesthetician,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Schultz. This depth of peel may not be advisable for anyone with a medium-dark or dark complexion, due to the risk of inďŹ&#x201A;ammation and hyperpigmentation, says Dr. Yagoda. Some patients need a topical anesthetic or pain pill for this treatment. Deeper peels are less common than they were in their 1990s heyday, says N.Y.C. dermatologist Elizabeth Hale, who in her practice uses fractionated lasers to target the same issues (some of which require less downtime). That said, many doctors who have been doing peels for decades and have perfected their techniques ďŹ nd deep versions like this â&#x20AC;&#x153;very eďŹ&#x20AC;ective and less expensive than lasers,â&#x20AC;? gy says Joel Cohen, director of AboutSkin Dermatology in Greenwood Village, Colo.

HEAL VS. PEEL Sure, light office and at-home varieties are deemed safe for most skin types, but if you can check any of the boxes below, resist resurfacing for now. YOU’RE FEVERISH “When you’re running a temperature, the blood vessels in your skin expand, which can cause them to absorb more acid than normal, increasing your risk of irritation,” says Dr. Schultz. YOU’RE PREGNANT Due to dramatic hormonal fluctuations, you may develop pigmentation problems like melasma if you inflame the skin.

“Chicago has endless options when it comes to its food scene. An absolute must is a slice of deep-dish pizza, one of my all-time favorites. And my restaurant picks vary: sometimes I just crave a great American steakhouse, and other times I like to explore the many off-thebeaten-path finds. Late night, I like to check out the live music venues. There are a ton, and the one I choose depends on my mood.” “No trip to Chicago would be complete without shopping— and a pair of wellcrafted kicks is essential for any city shopping spree. I love the stores on bustling North Michigan Ave. just as much as the shops on the smaller, charming streets— either way I never go home empty-handed,” says Jessica, pictured here with an on-trend layered dress and Timberland® Glancy 6-inch boots, $130.

OCTOBER 2016

“Girls are going to move our country and our world to a place where there’s more peace, more prosperity, more possibility, because women raise the next generations again and again and again.” — FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA

283


IN THE FINAL STRETCH OF A POLARIZING ELECTION SEASON, THEREâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S ONE THING THAT THE AMERICAN PUBLIC CAN AGREE ON: THE POWER OF MICHELLE OBAMA. AS THE FIRST LADY PREPARES TO EXIT THE WHITE HOUSE AFTER A GAME-CHANGING EIGHT YEARS, SHE SITS DOWN WITH EDITORIAL DIRECTOR ARIEL FOXMAN TO TALK ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATING GIRLS, THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL MEDIA, AND, OF COURSE, HER PERSONAL STYLE photographed by THOMAS WHITESIDE styled by MELISSA RUBINI

had been invited to the White House to chat with Michelle Obama as she rounded out the final months of her second four-year run as our nation’s ever-popular, everinspiring First Lady. It was a very hot, very humid summer morning in Washington, D.C. I arrived at the East Wing gate and was escorted to the Map Room, a venerable space filled with history and gravitas. (President Obama had welcomed the Dalai Lama there only a month prior.) Here I would wait with some of the First Lady’s communications team while she was being photographed in the East Colonnade for our cover feature. This was the first time a shoot like this was taking place in this corridor, one whose windows look out onto the five-decade-old Jacqueline Kennedy Garden. I was told Mrs. Obama might want a few minutes for herself between the shoot and our interview. An intern brought over a glass of water. It was covered with a paper cap printed with the presidential seal and placed on a coaster next to my recorder. Moments later we got the signal that FLOTUS was on her way. Suddenly, in she walked, buoyant and exuberant. Absolutely stunning in a Brandon Maxwell dress, the First Lady had come directly from set—no break necessary—to talk with InStyle about her Let Girls Learn initiative, her legacy, what the future might hold for her and the First Family, and, naturally, a little bit about the significance of fashion. ARIEL FOXMAN: It’s such an honor and privilege to be here. MICHELLE OBAMA: Oh, thank you. I’m a huge fan of the

magazine. It’s on all my planes. It’s part of all my travels. It’s like, Where’s InStyle? AF: Great to hear. Those are [newsstand] pockets we can’t buy [both laugh]. We’re so excited about your Let Girls Learn initiative and our partnership [see p. 169 for more]. What would you want our readers to know [in case] they’re hearing about Let Girls Learn for the first time? Why should they make room in their hearts and minds for this platform? MO: For the same reason I did. Sixty-two million girls around the world aren’t in school, and the first thing that comes to my mind is, “That could’ve been me.” [I think about] how I would have felt at the age of 10 or 11 or 12 if somebody walked up and said, “That’s it. Your dreams are over! You’re going to have to leave school and get married to somebody twice your age and start having kids.” It made me think, “What can we do, besides feel bad, to change that circumstance?” So I want your readers to know that the issue exists, number one, and that there are many ways that women and girls of all ages can engage. A great place to start is our website, 62MillionGirls.com. AF: Was there this flash point where you said, “I want to do something—and now is the moment”? MO: It’s always been a part of my life—mentoring, looking out for kids. I mean, I grew up on the South Side of Chicago, and I

286

I n S T Y L E O C TO B E R 2 0 1 6

had friends who were just as smart as me who didn’t apply to college for whatever reason…didn’t have the aspirations, didn’t have the support. I went away to school and came home and thought, “I’ve got to figure out how to use my education to start helping my friends and folks in my community.” AF: I read your piece in The Atlantic about the initiative, and what struck me as so incredible about this endeavor is the infrastructure aspect—all these different obstacles that young women face around the world. What has it taken to get this moving? It seems like such a herculean process. MO: All communities, we’ve learned, are very different [in terms of] traditions and cultural norms. So what makes this issue so challenging is that there’s no one solution. It’s not just about building bathrooms and providing school fees and making sure girls have tampons and menstrual pads, which are definitely on-the-ground issues, as you mentioned. But there are places in the world where families don’t believe that girls are worthy of an education. They’ll save money and send their sons to school, but they believe that it’s more important for their girls to stay home, get married early, care for the chickens, cook, and clean. So part of it is, How do you begin to tackle the various traditions that keep girls out of school? And that’s why the work with the Peace Corps has been very important—our partnership with them recognizes that we have to have community organizers on the ground. They’re there for long periods of

time, so they can develop trust and understand who the voices in these communities are. And that looks very different in every country. AF: I’m sitting here as the husband of a high school principal. And my mom was a teacher for 27 years. But as you’re telling this story, I’m thinking about my grandmother, who grew up in Canada and was told by her father, “You’re not going to go to school; your brother will.” And she said no. She found a way to supplement the family income so she could go and become a teacher. A lot of us think, “Oh, this is something that’s happening on the other side of the world.” But these attitudes are pervasive. MO: Well, that’s one of the things we talked about on our trip to Spain, a developed country whose statistics look like ours. Girls are going to primary and secondary school, they’re graduating, they’re going on to college; their numbers sometimes outrank those of men in colleges. Yet there are still these cultural stereotypes and norms that create ceilings for women there, like, When are you going to get married after you’ve spent your lifetime getting your law degree? The expectations for men are very different. In Liberia, those same

educating women can improve an entire country’s GDP. So these are huge issues. And as we talk on my team, girls’ education is kind of a no-brainer. Girls are going to move our country and our world to a place where there’s more peace, more prosperity, more possibility, because women raise the next generations again and again and again. AF: What really stands out about your recent trip to Liberia and Morocco as part of Let Girls Learn? MO: [In Liberia we were] visiting schools with no electricity,

We’re trying to make the connection between the developing and the developed world that it is gender inequality that is driving this issue—and that we have to keep fighting, even when it feels like we in the United States or in Spain have already arrived. We haven’t. We’re still fighting these stereotypes. AF: Can you talk about what you imagine the long-term impact a program like this could have not just globally but also on American citizens? MO: Well, the facts are clear. When women are educated around the world, they earn higher salaries. They bring more money into their families. They have lower infant mortality rates. They have lower rates of HIV and AIDS. There’s a larger likelihood that their children will be immunized and educated. And in many ways we’ve seen how

windows, or doors—and the kids there are paying to go; there is no free public education system. I was sitting next to President [Ellen Johnson] Sirleaf—the first female president in an African country— whom these girls idolized. You could see it when she walked in the room. Hearing how oppressed these girls feel, to have them do their best to articulate the challenges they face … that left an impression on me. And we went to Morocco, to Marrakesh, where there’s obviously less poverty, but the cultural issues are still pretty powerful. Sitting in a room with those amazing young girls and Meryl Streep, Freida Pinto, and some of the smartest women in the world—those conversations are the ones that stand out for me. And hopefully, the women who were watching via Snapchat will somehow be moved by those stories too, moved enough to act. AF: I’m not embarrassed to say that I watched your City College of New York commencement speech maybe 20 times. When you think about education in this country for women in particular, what would you want our audience to know are the biggest challenges we’re facing today? MO: I think one of them is that we can’t take what we have for granted. It pains me to hear statistics about dropout rates and kids who are bored or don’t understand the


importance that education plays, because it’s just so available. Yes, there are problems with our public education; there’s work to be done. But every child in this country has a school to go to. So what I want to tell our young people is, Don’t take this for granted. We have an obligation to take our education seriously and then to use the skills we develop to help other people who don’t have a voice and are nowhere near close to having a voice in their countries. AF: I want to switch gears a little bit. I was saying to your team that one of the things I’m going to miss is the incredible accessibility and, it’s not a word, but down-to-earthness that you and the First Family have brought to everything you do. Your use of social media has been a great point of entry for this accessibility. Do you have a set strategy? Or do you use it like most of us, sort of in the moment? MO: There’s definitely a strategy. We’ve learned that we need to reach people where they are. We can fool ourselves into thinking that everybody is still watching the evening news and Sunday morning talk shows, but I live with Generation Z, and I know that their habits, the way they take in information is so different. And they’ve changed—there’s a difference between my 18-year-old [Malia] and my 15-yearold [Sasha]. We’ve got to meet our constituents where they are, and they’re on Snapchat. AF: Do you like Snapchat? Are you having fun with it? MO: I’m learning it. AF: It’s not completely intuitive, right? MO: It’s not, but it’s intuitive to them. I’m fortunate enough to have a team of young people, because they get it. People on social media want to have fun. So you’ve got to pull them in with a little humor, a little pop culture, [by] staying on top of the trends and understanding that this is what draws people in—the latest dance, the latest craze, the latest saying. That’s the first step to getting their attention. And then once you have them, you can do a travel documentary on an issue that’s very serious, because you’ve got them. We mix the two. We might be doing a little carpool karaoke one day, but the next day we’re sitting down in a serious conversation with girls in Marrakesh and hearing about their challenges. AF: InStyle uses social media to create interest around things that aren’t maybe at the top of the evening news, like what the First Lady wore when she walked off the plane in D.C. So I wanted to talk a bit about style. What role does fashion play for you? MO: It goes hand in hand for anyone who’s in the public sphere. Your first interaction with people is what they see. So you can’t take it for granted. When you’re traveling in a country, the colors you wear, the cut of a dress, the hem length, whether your shoulders are showing—those are all important statements of respect and appreciation and understanding of a culture. [See p. 292 for more.] But it’s also just as important for the wearer to be comfortable, and that has always been what drives my choices—do I feel good in this? I don’t really care what the trend is. I mean, if the trend is nice and it happens to look good … AF: Or you’re setting the trend, which may be the case. MO: I tendto notworryabout the trends, because whatworks

for an 18-year-old selfie queen may not for a 52-year-old First Lady who is a mom of teenagers she’s trying to be a good role model for. AF: Is fashion a family affair? Do you shop and dress and pick out things together? MO: No, no. The girls do their own thing. They have their own style that’s very much connected to that of their friends and their community. How we dress when we’re in public may or may not reflect how we dress in our real lives. AF: What is your off-duty style? MO: Very casual. No makeup, a T-shirt, and a pair of ripped jean shorts or workout pants because I’m always on the verge of going to or coming from [working out]. So it isn’t formal. I love color and pieces that make me feel good, but it’s much more informal. AF: Yesterday, maybe you know, was National Simplicity Day. Right now, you’re so busy and your days are so full. When you look out six months, will it be a more simple time? Are there things that you’re excited to embrace again? MO: Well, the honest answer is I have no idea, just like I had no idea what life would be like living in the White House. My hopes are that we recapture some everydayness, some anonymity. And we know that will take some time. But I always joke that I dream of opening up my front door and walking out without any notification, without any security. But at the same time, there are many aspects to living in the White House that we’ll miss—the folks who work here, the staff who takes care of our families, my team who works on these issues.Imean,thesearethepeopleweseeeveryday.They’ve cared for us for eight years. My children’s formative years have been in this house. But we’re young. Barack and I still want to do great work. AF: Is Let Girls Learn part of that legacy? MO: Let Girls Learn is something I want to do for the rest of my life. Because we’re not going to solve this issue, unfortunately, in my lifetime. But to the extent that I can continue to shine a light, whatever light I have left when I leave here, on those girls and to work with leaders in this country and around the world to find solutions—I think that’s a worthy goal. But we’ve got a lot of other things we also will continue to do. We just have to figure out what our time looks like, what our tools look like. And it will be nice to open up the paper, look at the front page, and know that you’re not responsible for every headline [both laugh]. AF: That’s a huge onus that lifts. MO: It’s sort of like, It’s not my job. AF: Someone else’s problem [both laugh]. Well, I want to thank you so much. I think the tote-bag collection we are launching around this initiative is going to sell out immediately. MO: It’s important because InStyle is what young people, what women are reading. So the fact that you, in addition to caring about fashion and trends, are taking on substantive issues in a serious way and signing on to initiatives like this is tremendous. AF: Thank you. We’re so happy to have you as a partner. MO: Hopefully, we’ll keep working together. ■

7;))8)7'%4) Evan Rachel Wood breezes into Hugo’s restaurant in West Hollywood on a sweltering 90-degree day. She’s wearing a sleeveless concert T emblazoned with the logo of her band, Rebel and a Basketcase. A study in effortless chic, she sips Dandelion Vanilla tea and enthuses about her latest project, HBO’s masterful reboot of Michael Crichton’s 1973 android thriller, Westworld, which premieres October 2. The 29-year-old actress, who has been in the spotlight since her teens, is known for edgy indies like Thirteen and Oscar-winning hits like The Wrestler, but she says she hopes Westworld will be her opus. Set in an

immersive, artificial-reality Wild West theme park, Wood plays Dolores Abernathy, the park’s oldest “host.” “We know there’s something different about her, and it’s either consciousness or madness,” Wood says. As Dolores, she wears the same long blue period dress in every episode. However, in real life, her personal aesthetic is androgynous. “I basically dress like a 13-year-old boy,” she says with a laugh. “It’s not that I don’t like feminine clothing; I just like a blend of masculine and feminine because it reflects who I am.” After more than a

decade of wearing designer pieces for appearances and events, Wood says she’s finally starting to appreciate the “glamming” process as a form of expression rather than a tedious requirement of her job. “It took me a while to get to a place of feeling like fashion is something I can have fun with,” says Wood, noting that Dolce and Gabbana is a red-carpet favorite of hers. Since David Bowie and Debbie Harry are her icons, it’s no surprise that Wood embraces music as much as acting. And when it comes to crafting her persona for performances with her band, she pays homage to favorite stars from decades past. “My stage character is a mix of Siouxsie Sioux, Ducky from Pretty in Pink, and Watts from Some Kind of Wonderful,” says Wood, a John Hughes fanatic, as she points out a tattoo on her inner arm that reads “Watts.” “She’s my tomboy hero.” —ANGELA SALAZAR

interior design and still fantasizes about starting a housewares line with Ingham. “This has been one of the best collaborations I’ve ever had.” Now that their work is done, Mullally and Offerman hang out at home as often as possible between shoots. Each has a film coming out in December. He stars in The Founder as one of the brothers who started McDonald’s, opposite Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc, the fast-food visionary who later took over the company. She stars alongside Bryan Cranston in the comedy Why Him? about a married couple whose daughter (Zoey Deutch) is in a relationship with a crude tech billionaire (James Franco). This fall they’re also on tour in an autobiographical two-person stage show of musical numbers and comedy sketches called Summer of 69: No Apostrophe, which Offerman describes as a humorous, sometimes ribald look at their relationship. “I think the takeaway is that we’re a normal couple and we happen to really love each other,” he says. The stage, in fact, is where they first crossed paths. In 2000 they both acted in a play in a converted bra factory in L.A. In a small-world confluence, Ingham was acting at the time and appeared in the show too. “Nick and

Megan met, and all of a sudden there was a little romance backstage. It was pretty cute,” recalls Ingham, who reconnected with Mullally when she walked into a shop the designer owned about eight years ago. “Nick and Megan are totally perfect for each other—two peas in a pod.” When they’re home together, they usually spend most of their time upstairs, reading, doing jigsaw puzzles that they post on Twitter, and practicing songs from their upcoming show. “Since it’s a two-story house, we kind of kitted it out to have its own little self-contained unit upstairs,” says Mullally. There’s a kitchenette with a mini fridge and a TV room where Offerman, a longtime woodworker (his third book, Good Clean Fun, comes out this fall), has contributed to the décor by building a twoperson desk. He also fabricated their slab dining table and four-poster bed. His rugged touches offer a counterweight to Mullally’s hand-tufted rugs and Christian Lacroix wallpaper—kind of like their relationship. “I’m more of the donkey in our marriage, and I’m happy,” he says. “I’ll carry the luggage, and Megan can tell everybody that I’m gassy. As long as she lets me sleep in the bed, I’m down with it.” ■

She found this Christian Lacroix Mariposa design at L.A.’s Walnut Wallpaper. 2. The couple purchased this vintage turntable on Etsy. 3. Offerman built this walnut stool for a scene in The Seer, a documentary he co-produced about author Wendell Berry. “The wood has been ravaged by termites, so it has a real art quality to it,” he says. 4.

Thorisson’s simple rule? Pair any not-toosugary dessert with a delicious sweet drink. She matches the fig tart with a fruity Pineau des Charentes and a more decadent dish, like cinnamon crêpes, with a dry Champagne. The mellow tarte tatin goes well with a sweet Loupiac from Bordeaux.

THE SCENE

RUSTIC ELEGANCE GO OLD-SCHOOL Vintage tableware is “soaked with history,” says Thorisson, who loves revamping tradition in fresh ways—say, piling clouds of fluffy whipped cream into a pretty antique silver gravy boat.

KEEP IT LIGHT Charming white plates frame Thorisson’s food beautifully but never steal the spotlight. “The table as a whole should be opulent, but it should never feel stiff, forced, or designed,” she says.

CREATE HEIGHT Give each confection its due—and liven up the tablescape—by using cake stands in varying sizes and colors. “I love mixing them,” says Thorisson. “They bring an Alice in Wonderland touch” to an enchanting spread.

0GDCĀ,MKC THE RECIPES

CINNAMON CRÊPES WITH CREAM AND STRAWBERRIES If you’ve always assumed crêpes have to be made just before serving, think again. Thorisson likes to prepare these delicious, cinnamon-flecked pancakes up to six hours in advance, keeping them moist by covering them with plastic wrap. When it’s time to serve, she simply fills them with cream and diced berries. SERVES 8 ACTIVE TIME 45 MINUTES TOTAL TIME 45 MINUTES

2 ¹⁄3 2 2 ½ 1½ 1½ 1 ¼ 1 1

tbsp unsalted butter cup sugar large eggs cups whole milk tsp vanilla extract cups all-purpose flour tsp ground cinnamon tsp baking powder tsp fine sea salt cup heavy cream cup diced strawberries

1 In a small 8-inch sauté pan, melt the butter. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. 2 In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs for a minute. Gradually whisk in milk and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Whisk flour and milk mixtures together until you get a smooth, fluid batter. Finally, stir in melted butter. 3 Return sauté pan to medium-high heat. When the pan is very hot, spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into the pan, swirling the pan to cover its surface evenly. Cook for a minute or so, until the edges start browning. Lift edges slightly with a butter knife, then flip crêpe and brown the other side, about 30 seconds. 4 Transfer to a plate and continue cooking the remaining batter in the same fashion, stacking crêpes on top of one another. This will yield 20 to 25 crêpes. 5 When finished, cover stack with an inverted plate, wrap it in a clean kitchen towel, and cover with plastic wrap or a plastic bag to keep crêpes moist and soft. You can make them up to 6 hours in advance. 6 Just before serving, whip cream until it holds soft peaks. Spoon a tablespoon into the

center of each crêpe along with a sprinkle of diced strawberries. Fold crêpe in half and then in half again to form a triangle. Serve immediately.

FRESH FIG TART WITH HONEY AND ORANGE FLOWER WATER Whenever she visits friends who own fig trees, Thorisson arrives with puff pastry so she can roll it out on the spot and showcase freshly picked fruit. Mascarpone cheese and honey create a creamy base, while orange flower water turns this tart ambrosial. To keep the crust nice and flat, you can bake the dough under a baking sheet if you don’t have pie weights handy. SERVES 8 ACTIVE TIME 15 MINUTES TOTAL TIME 30 MINUTES

Fold in a ¾-inch border on all sides. Transfer to the baking sheet and prick all over with a fork. Top with a sheet of parchment and then with pie weights or a second baking sheet. Bake until pastry is golden, about 15 minutes. Set aside to cool. 4 In a large bowl, combine heavy cream, mascarpone, honey, and vanilla bean seeds. Whisk

PLANTIA’S TARTE TATIN Honoring her château’s former resident, an avid cook named Plantia, Thorisson re-creates a French favorite, the classic upsidedown tart full of caramelized apples. The dough is quite dry, warns Thorisson, but the result is a great, buttery crust, and rolling it out on a piece of parchment makes transferring it to the skillet a breeze. SERVES 6 ACTIVE TIME 35 MINUTES TOTAL TIME 2 HOURS, 20 MINUTES

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most successful women. Did you ever see your gender as a barrier? My parents raised me to feel I could

do anything as long as I worked hard. It never occurred to me that gender would come into play. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until my early days in fashion that I started to realize there are more men than women in the boardroom. I was surprised by that. What did you struggle with when you were young? I was shy, so I had to push myself out of

Your new collection, Gemini Link, is about the many sides to todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woman. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it like to be Tory Burch the Person and Tory Burch the Brand? Having to represent the company as

an exceedingly private person is hard. Right from the beginning I was very clear that my personal life would be off-limits, although that was not always the case, unfortunately. But there is crossover. I just try to protect my family. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice I give my entrepreneurs: You have to guard what is important to you.

Before you launched your label in 2004, you stepped away from your career to be with your kids. You have to be honest with yourself. To

have three babies under 4 and to take on a very senior-level jobâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I knew it would be tough. But family is paramount to me. At this point, I think my boys would prefer me not to be so involved in their lives! They tell me Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the strictest mom in New York, which is hard to believe. What values do you hope to instill in your kids? That you treat all people with respect. I

tell my boys Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to needlepoint them a belt that says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a gentleman is not a part-time job.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard that more times than they can count. Why did you choose tangerine as your brandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature color? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the color Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always

identiďŹ ed with. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so happy. I wanted an orange bedroom as a kid but never got one, which is probably a good thing, because that would have been scary! You did a whole book dedicated to color. The book I pitched, no publisher wanted. I wanted to do one on entrepreneurship, and they told me women in business books donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell. This was before Sheryl Sandberg. If you could write that book today, what would the takeaway be? Believe in yourself.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what my mother taught me. When I got upset, she would say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Tory Robinson! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget it!â&#x20AC;?

Tory Burchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life seems perfectâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell her that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ridiculous!â&#x20AC;? she says when we run down her rĂŠsumĂŠ as evidence. (She is a mother of three, owns a fashion empire, and supports female entrepreneurs through the Tory Burch Foundation. Oh, and did we mention sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a natural beauty?) Burch is quick to point out thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to her than what you seeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;after all, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a proud Gemini. Here, the 50-year-old opens up to I Am That Girl co-founder Emily Greener about struggling with shyness, being the only woman in the boardroom, and not getting to write the book she really wanted to.

my comfort zone. It was not always a given that I would be captain of the tennis team or leading discussions in class. That still holds true. So something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked on my whole life is how to be a strong leader but on my own terms.
