Welcome

Welcome to our January issue, and to the wonderful sense of optimism a new year brings. As we farewell 2016, which has been somewhat, ahem, challenging for many of us, we’ve also taken the time to remember some of the little things we loved in our Style 100 feature (p31). From the athleisure takeover to our Gucci obsession and even Queen Elizabeth’s fabulous fashion as she celebrated her 90th year, the list features not only what has defined style over the last 12 months, but also what to look out for next to keep you ahead of the curve. And there’s a lot to get excited about. Our Brave New World shoot (p53) showcases the bold new shapes and shades for the months to come—dramatic sleeves, extended layers, acid green: tick, tick, tick! Plus, our handy Make-up Techniques feature (p111), will help you brush up on the latest beauty how-tos that will modernise your look before you can say, “Happy New Year!” I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you for making InStyle your friend in fashion over the last 12 months, and look forward to celebrating the changing seasons and trends (and many fabulous shoes) together in 2017. I wish you and your family happy holidays and a year of very good things to come.

Dev Patel In the eight years since his breakthrough role in the Oscar blockbuster Slumdog Millionaire, Dev Patel has built quite a resume, working with M. Night Shyamalan and Aaron Sorkin to name a few. But in his upcoming drama Lion, the 26-year-old emerges as a full-grown force

Marni coat, Neil Barrett shirt, Corneliani trousers, Fratelli Rossetti oxfords. OPPOSITE: Boglioli sweater, Burberry trousers.

With the same sparkling enthusiasm he exudes on screen, Dev Patel, stylishly rumpled in an olive-green linen button-down, Acne Studios blue jeans, and beat-up tan leather Cole Haan oxfords, eschews the comforts of the sumptuous sitting room inside the LA home where we just wrapped up our photo shoot. Instead, he opts to sit outside, where he spots Boomerang, the resident cat, walking across the lawn. “Hello!” he shouts. “Come and join us.” The cat, no doubt drawn in by Patel’s charisma, instantly obliges. The actor’s buoyant mood contrasts sharply with his role in Lion, a profound, emotional drama released on January 19. He plays Saroo Brierley, a young man raised in Tasmania who, with the advent of Google maps, becomes obsessed with finding his Indian family. Scenes with Nicole Kidman (who plays his adoptive mother) and Rooney Mara (his on-screen girlfriend) are deeply affecting, but it’s Patel’s solitary moments, in which he must reveal a whole range of human feeling to a lifeless computer screen, that will truly captivate audiences. “It’s the hardest performance I’ve had to do,” Patel confesses. “It required a level of stillness, a kind of comfortableness, that took a while to get.” In Lion, your character, Saroo Brierley, develops a somewhat unhealthy, if wholly understandable, obsession with Google Earth. Have you ever fallen into an internet K-hole? I’ve had a tumultuous relationship

with technology. I’m a very active human, so the idea of sitting down behind a desk or being on a computer, it kind of takes away from that human interaction—which is why I’m doing what I’m doing, you know? That’s what acting is— it’s exploring what it’s like to be human. Of course, I’ve got to say one of my guilty pleasures is going on YouTube and watching shark attack videos. I love that kind of stuff. Did you enjoy working opposite Rooney Mara? Rooney is amazing. [Her face] is so watchable; you’ll forget your lines when you’re in front of her. She’s got this fierce quietness about her, and I’m like this big, dopey labrador running around. So those two kinds of energies together were very interesting. Your look has evolved considerably in the past year. Did you change your appearance for a role? When I

auditioned for Garth [Davis, the director of Lion], I was in London prepping for a film. I was really skinny—like fall through the cracks in the floor skinny—and I had short hair.

I n S T Y L E J A N UA RY 2 0 1 7

So Garth said, “We’ve got to grow you up a bit. Grow your hair. Don’t shave. Hit the gym. And eat. And we’ll go from there.” It was great—I kind of grew into this other skin. What initially sparked your interest in acting? I was very hyperactive—the class clown—and it was this amazing teacher, Mr Vine, who said, “You’re going to get school detention if you don’t go for the school play.” [I had to harness] that energy so it wouldn’t go the wrong way. I grew up [in London] in an Indian community next to a council estate, so acting was a very indulgent dream. It was like saying, “I’m going to be an astronaut.” You mention being the class clown. Fashion can be a little self-serious. Are photo shoots a challenge for you?

Yeah, this gives me more anxiety than getting into the ring with Nicole Kidman! There’s no character to hide behind. And you’re pursuing a kind of perfection, or something… It’s very foreign that I’m standing there, trying to pull these poses with my rubber face. How do clothes impact your confidence and performance when you’re on a set? My work has really

given me a respect for clothing. Your character becomes finite and real once you’ve got it on. There have been times when I haven’t felt comfortable in my costume—it just hasn’t fit the energy of what I was trying to achieve in my head—and the performance hasn’t gone right because of it. It changes the way you move, the way you act. What’s your personal relationship with fashion?

Once I started having to walk the red carpet for premieres, I began to understand what styles fit and what pieces felt like a good representation of myself. I love British brands. I lean on Burberry all the time; they’re always there for me. Burberry suits my body type—the nice, skinny tailoring and mix between looking cool and not caring too much. Do you have a fashion icon? Bruce Lee. He was impeccably stylish. Get a dude to put on a yellow and black onesie and see if he’ll ever look as cool as Bruce Lee. What’s your default date outfit? Jesus—when was the last time I went out on a date? Hmm. I wear my lucky shoes. Nice pair of socks. You’ve got to smell good. I lean toward Bleu de Chanel. Okay. So you’re not dating up a storm, then. Not dating up a storm right now. How do you spend your free time? I’ve been doing up my house in LA. I’ve got a guest bedroom that I named Villa Anita, after my mum. I made this little plaque with a tree on it that I think she’ll like. My grand-uncle passed away, and he had all these pictures of life back in Kenya— with my mum in a little blue frock. All my grand-dads look like either Elvis Presley or James Brown. They were just so cool. I put them in [my mum’s] room so it would make her feel at home. No interior designer? Not at all. It’s gotta be my space. Why would I want someone else’s? Q

—REESE WITHERSPOON

Atelier Versace silk and satin dress.

JANUARY

“This is the one life you get, and you have to live it to the very end”


s e e e Ö WHEN A COUNTRY MUSIC ICON CALLS AN OSCAR WINNER FOR A CHAT THE RESULT IS A HEART-TO-HEART FILLED WITH SOUTHERN CHARM. REESE WITHERSPOON TALKS TO DOLLY PARTON ABOUT TENNESSEE LIVING, CADILLAC LOVING, AND MAKING BEAUTIFUL MUSIC photographed by THOMAS WHITESIDE styled by MELISSA RUBINI

Reese Witherspoon can claim many titles: Oscar-winning actress, film producer, CEO of clothing and lifestyle brand Draper James, mother of three. But, on the night of October 2, 2016 she was, first and foremost, a Dolly Parton fan. As the country legend wrapped up the second leg of her Pure & Simple tour [in LA], Witherspoon and her friends belted out hits along with the rest of the nearly 18,000-strong sellout crowd. The following afternoon, Parton called Witherspoon to talk about being a “true Southern girl”, standing up to “bull donkeys”, and knowing exactly how much to give—and not to give—to “creative vampires”. Unsurprisingly, the admiration between the women is mutual. REESE WITHERSPOON: I know I told you this before, Dolly, but

I’ve never told this to a magazine: when I was probably five years old, I wanted to be Dolly Parton. I was skipping around the blacktop [asphalt] at school by myself, and my PE teacher said, “Why aren’t you playing the game [with the other kids]?” I said, “Well, I’m not going to play the game because, Ms Wright, I’m going to be Dolly Parton when I grow up.” You were such a big inspiration to me. I loved country music, and I thought you stood for so many things. You were a beautiful storyteller. And you made me feel proud about being from a place that other people made fun of. I wanted to be like you—and I still do. DOLLY PARTON: Oh, that’s sweet of you to say. Is singing something you want to do more of? You did such a good job in Walk the Line. RW: It’s fun in movies, but I’m not brave enough to do that. DP: You could do a duet with me. RW: Oh my gosh, well, I’d do anything you wanted me to do. Even if I’m scared, I’ll do it anyway. What about you? Were you nervous when you had to act for the first time in 9 to 5? DP: Yes! But I thought, “Well, if it’s a big success, I can take part of the credit. If it’s not, I can blame it on [co-stars] Jane [Fonda] and Lily [Tomlin], because no-one knows me anyway.” I was nervous. You never want to look stupid or foolish in front of other people. But I have always said my desire to do something has always been greater than my fear of it. RW: It’s like jumping with two feet into a cold pool. I think that’s a good lesson for young women: no-one knows what they’re doing. You walk into boardrooms with these executives—they don’t really know anything more than anybody else. You have to put yourself out there and just give it a try because who you are and where you’re from offers a unique perspective that everybody needs. DP: I agree. In the early days, not that many women were active in the entertainment business, but men never intimidated me because I had six brothers, my dad, my uncles and so forth. I learned early on

that people can be bull donkeys if you let them. You’ve got to stand your ground and know who you are. I’ve let a lot of good deals go by because I was not willing to sacrifice my integrity or my values or my principles. You have to keep your antennae out. RW: For sure. I’ve learned, particularly when you’re in a business for a long time, you need to treat people the way you want to be treated. Because at the end of the day, you’re going to be up, you’re going to be down, but it’s really about how you behaved. That’s important to me. DP: There’s nothing worse than working with people who suck up all your good stuff and take credit for it—I call them creative vampires. I can hone in on those people right away, and I know how much to give and how much not to give, and I know you know exactly what I’m talking about. RW: I think that’s another good part of getting older. I’ve realised that life is too short to spend my time with anybody who doesn’t appreciate me, treat me with respect, or bring value to the relationship. I’m much more confident now, and I feel like I have the ability to say, “Nope, I don’t want to work with that person.”

You’re going to be up, you’re going to be down, but it’s really about how you behaved” DP: Right. I’m not the kind of person who can work around ill-thinking, ill-willed people, who make everybody else feel bad. I love my work, I love to have a good time, but I will tell you where to put it if I don’t like where you’ve got it. I don’t like to do that. I don’t lose my temper, but I often have to use it. RW: Yeah, I lose my temper only about once a year, but when I do, they usually deserve it. Really deserve it. DP: If I get mad, it’s because you’ve really done something bad. I want to be happy; I want things to go good. But I’m a businesswoman; I’m not going to let you run over me. So I stand firm for what I believe in and what I will and won’t allow. You have to do that or you’re never going to get anywhere in business, but you don’t have to be a jerk. We don’t have to be called bitches to be strong. So… the last time we talked, you said you were looking for a house in Nashville. Did you ever buy that?

RW: Thank you, Dolly. She remembers meeting you [when she was

I lose my temper only about once a year, but when I do, they usually deserve it” RW: Yeah, I bought a house. Can I come over for a cup of sugar when

I’m in town? A cuppa? Oh my gosh, I was opening my second Draper James store this weekend and was thinking of you in Steel Magnolias when your character said, “Now I’m a chain!” DP: I just want to tell you how proud we are to have Draper James in our area. And then you put the bag out [that says], “What would Dolly do?” I can’t carry that myself, of course, but my friends are buying them up. It was sweet of you to do that! Is the brand doing well? RW: It is. It’s a new chapter for me starting a business, going around passing the hat, and promoting it all over the place. It’s a different experience, but I’m enjoying learning something new. I’ve been acting for about 25 years, and I still love it, but I like the challenge of trying something else too. I find there are a lot of people talking about New York and Los Angeles, but there’s a whole world out there in between, and that’s who I like to tell stories about and make products for—people who love the life they have and have a sense of style that’s uniquely their own. DP: I know you’re a true Southern girl like me and you’re proud of your roots. I remember you were telling me once about your grandmother who drove a white Cadillac with white driving gloves. I laughed when you told me that because when I broke out in the business, the first car I bought was a Cadillac, and every year I still get a new one. RW: I don’t know why Southern women love Cadillacs—why do we love Cadillacs so much? DP: In my mind that was, like, the luxury car. Especially in the country-music business it says, “I made it”. I actually bought one before I made enough money to pay for it, but I paid on it. It made me look like a bigger star than I was at the time. There’s something classy about that sort of thing. It’s something Southern girls fancied themselves glamorous in. Speaking of glamour, where is your second store? RW: In Dallas. We were down there last week, and I took my daughter with me to open it. DP: I can’t believe you have a daughter old enough to go shopping with. She’s beautiful. She looks just like you.

little] and how beautiful you were—and she loved your fingernails. DP: How old are your kids now? RW: My daughter is 17, my middle son is 13, and my little boy is 4. DP: That’s a big gap. What’s the difference between having your

bigger kids when you were younger and having this one now that you’re grown and have done so much in between? RW: I’m just trying to hold on, trying to make it through. My older kids help with the little one. It’s nice to have a big family. DP: Yes, I know the value of staying close with family, and I respect and admire you—with all that you do, you also take the time to be a good mother. RW: My mum worked, and I think it’s good for kids to see women working and being successful. I think it’s going to make them hard workers because they see that I don’t get much sleep. But I love what I do. I want them to grow up with passion. This is the one life you get, and you have to live it to the very end. DP: I never plan to retire—there’s just so much left to do. People always ask, “How in the world do you do everything you do?” And I say, “I don’t think about it. I have dreamed myself into a corner, and now I have to be responsible for it.” And I know you understand that more than most. You have a lot of things going on. Tell me a little about what you’re doing now. RW: I’ve got a miniseries, Big Little Lies, on HBO [Showcase in Australia]. Nicole Kidman and I produced it together. It’s always more fun to do projects with other people you respect. Nicole lives in Nashville, so we had a lot of time to connect. She’s so smart and talented. It’s about five women, and it all centres around a murder in a kindergarten classroom. You don’t know which one of us did it. Each character is not all good or bad. We represent the full spectrum of behaviour. We’re doing horrible things, but we are also trying to be good mothers. Some of us are succeeding and some of us aren’t. DP: And I heard you did an animated film that’s out in December. Tell me about that. RW: That’s a fun movie called Sing. It’s about all these animals that dream of becoming entertainers. They finally get their chance in a singing competition. My character is a pig whose husband doesn’t pay any attention to her and whose kids treat her terribly. And she gets picked! It’s a great movie about secret dreams and [working toward] your goals. It’s really heartwarming. I cried three times when I saw it the other day. DP: I have these little grandnieces and nephews, and I love to take them to matinees in Nashville, so we’ll definitely go see it. RW: They’ll love it, Dolly. I had to sing some Taylor Swift songs that were pretty challenging. DP: So you are singing! I’m going to have to have a bag made that says “What would Reese do?” [They both laugh.] Or “What wouldn’t Reese do?” Q

AT FACE VALUE Watching Cheyenne Tozzi at work is rather special. Born into a family of models—her mother Yvonne, and her older sister Tahnya were both in the industry—finding her angles appears to come naturally. Yet even with such a pedigree, Tozzi insists it’s a profession she simply “fell into”. With a coveted magazine cover under her belt at just 13 she was quickly touted as the next Elle Macpherson. “I grew up with [modelling] really, so I suppose I didn’t know any better, but we always had a great time,” she says. These days, posing in a photoshoot is somewhat of a rarity for the 28-year-old, who has been spending her time in the recording studio writing and producing a self-titled album. Recent months have seen the release of two singles, “Other Bae” and “Swept Up”. Tozzi’s vocals are deeply reminiscent of the late jazz crooner Sarah ‘Sassy’ Vaughn, combined with Amy Winehouse and a hint of Peggy Lee. Yet, “I wouldn’t call myself a professional singer,” the Australian beauty maintains. “My music is something I used to write on the plane when I was young, and now I get to sing it and it’s fun. I’m not doing it for anyone else but myself.” Much like her modelling career, her musical endeavours have already hit some major highs. Her first-ever live performance was with her former band Van Hoorn in front of a crowd of thousands as the support act for British indie rockers The Kooks. What followed was a tour of Afghanistan performing for the Australian troops. “It was really humbling,” she says of the experience. Tozzi is aware of the stigma surrounding model “slashies”, so does the notion of not being taken seriously ever play on her mind? “I used to worry about that,” she says. “[But] I’m only human, my mum raised us impeccably well as women of substance.” Case in point: for her 28th birthday, there were no ostentatious gifts, instead Tozzi asked her friends to donate money to the United Nations. As a result, a substantial sum was raised in a bid to help women and girls around the world live free from violence. “I still feel like it’s not enough. You watch the news, and you can’t fathom what those women and children are going through,” she says. In the industries of music and modelling, a social media presence plays a crucial part, but unkind words from strangers can pierce even the toughest of skins. While Tozzi admits she has let it get the better of her in the past, perhaps her most admirable quality is that she knows exactly who she is and has learnt to focus on her true passions. “I’m only doing things that I think are good out of the nature of my own heart.” –SOPHIE GOULOPOULOS

Watching Naomie Harris sip herbal tea in the restaurant of Midtown Manhattan’s 1 Hotel, a spot she chose for its eco-friendliness, it is hard to imagine her portraying the gritty reality of a crack addict onscreen in Barry Jenkins’s coming-of-age drama Moonlight. Her skin is glowing, her posture is perfect, and her Burberry coat is neatly folded beside her. “I don’t drink alcohol, smoke or even drink coffee, so I had to do a hell of a lot of research to get this character right,” says the 40-year-old actress, who made headlines for being the first black woman to play iconic Bond character Eve Moneypenny in Skyfall. Critics say Harris’s sensitive portrayal of the character could earn her a Best Supporting Actress nod. “I wanted to show that there’s a loving heart underneath her addiction,” she says. “I hope I’ve presented her in such a way that she won’t be dismissed because of her problems.” If Harris seems particularly empathetic, it may have something to do with the time she spent with Will Smith, her co-star in the drama Collateral Beauty (out January 4). “His energy is so contagious. Because we were shooting this movie on the streets of New York, crowds of 80 to 100 bystanders would form out of nowhere,” she explains. “Will shook their hands, played with their kids, and posed for selfies. He told me, ‘You have to be kind because you never know what somebody else is going through in their day.’ ’’ When it comes to style, the actress is equally mindful about the choices she makes. “Beauty comes from being comfortable, yet we end up crippling ourselves in high heels,” says Harris, who recently recruited her best friend, former jewellery designer Nola Singer, to be her stylist. “She often chooses looks based on the locale we’re in. In Paris, she’ll find something from a cool new French label. In London, where I’m from, I like to wear Burberry because I want to support Christopher Bailey.” Another Brit she adores? Her Collateral Beauty co-star Helen Mirren. “It’s rare to see women her age owning their sexuality,” she laughs. “She even has a hidden tattoo.” —CHRISTINA SHANAHAN

Make-up artist Dominic Skinner is the man behind chroming. “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? Lipstick. Apply moisturiser, then concealer. For extra glow, massage in a sheer luminising liquid, then, take a frosted lipstick and “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 in seamlessly.”

To bring dimension to eyes, one would typically have to layer multiple shadows in various finishes over every quadrant of the eyelid. Lighten up your approach with a tip from make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic and just add water. Submerge your bristles in H2O, then dip the damp brush in shadow and sweep it over your lid. You’ll see a faint hue emerge. Repeat the process, focusing the brush on where you want to add depth and intensity (think along your creases and the outer edges). Always re-wet the bristles before running the brush over your shadow.

Incredibly popular in Asia, this ombré effect shows off dark berry hues in a fun, fresh way. Here’s how to do it: first tap a bit of foundation over lips then use your finger to press a deep stain or cream into the centre 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 centre of your lower lip.

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 make-up artist Lisa Potter-Dixon. 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, says Potter-Dixon. “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.”

AN EMERGING TREND The natural

beauty industry has been growing steadily in popularity—and it’s not surprising. With so many women embracing a wholesome diet and choosing to shop organic, it was only a matter of time before they took a magnifying glass to their beauty regimen, too. That is, specifically: the products they are using, what kind of ingredients they contain, and the overall effect on their skin. The good news is that the days when the only natural products on the market imparted a persistent herb-like odour, or offered less-thandesirable textures and results, are over. The not-so-good news? While the natural beauty industry has progressed significantly in recent years, the products haven’t necessarily become easier to comprehend, leaving budding eco-beauty enthusiasts poring over labels. According to the Green Beauty Barometer survey into natural beauty products conducted in 2015, nearly one in four women deemed it very important for their skincare products to be natural, and 63 per cent of millennials said they were looking for natural skincare buys to include in their regimen. With statistics like these, it was only a matter of time before global skincare organisations took notice, including New York-based Kiehl’s. The brand recently launched the Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream, a rich daily moisturiser that is 99.6 per cent naturally derived and free of parabens, mineral oils, and synthetic colours and fragrances. It also harnesses the power of two natural ingredients, Korean red ginseng root and manuka honey from New Zealand. “At Kiehl’s, ingredients are the single most important component of our products,” says Roberta Weiss, senior vice president of innovation and product development. “Only ingredients that we

can demonstrate are truly beneficial to the skin are selected. And, in addition to efficacy, every ingredient is tested for safety.” So why aren’t more brands utilising natural and certified organic ingredients? Proven results are crucial when formulating with natural ingredients, says Weiss. “It can be challenging because the removal of synthetic ingredients limits the ‘palette’ of active ingredients we can work with. In addition, the effectiveness of natural ingredients can be more challenging to validate due to the active components within them, whereas synthetic ingredients typically contain only one active component. Finally, the aesthetics of a formula are often compromised if we

INGREDIENT INDEX

What Does It Really Mean? Dermatologist Dr. Nicholas Stewart from The Skin Hospital in Sydney gives us the lowdown on four common synthetic ingredients found in beauty products—and whether they’re safe or suspect PARABENS

SULFATES

“These are a group of preservatives added to topical products to decrease the growth of microorganisms, which can cause them to spoil,” says Dr. Stewart. In general they are well tolerated, however concerns have cropped up about their links to serious health concerns. “There is little evidence for these claims—and lots of evidence that they are safe—which is why regulatory bodies allow their current use,” Dr. Stewart explains.

“They’re usually included in products for their cleansing properties, and are found in soaps and facial cleansers to form a lather. Without sulfates, or similar compounds, cleansing products wouldn’t be as effective,” Dr. Stewart explains. He adds that these ingredients can cause irritant dermatitis—redness, itching and inflammation— which is the result of the physical properties of the compound, but it generally occurs in people who already have skin concerns like eczema.

PHTHALATES

ALUMINIUM COMPOUNDS

“Found in food packaging as well as cosmetics, these are a group of compounds added to plastic to make it more flexible and durable,” says Dr. Stewart. “The safety of some phthalates has come into question—in those where there is strong evidence they cause harm, the use has been banned by regulatory bodies. Luckily [those phthalates] were not commonly used in cosmetics; diethyl phthalate, used as an emulsifier in beauty products, is thought to have low toxic potential.”

“These compounds, most notably aluminium chlorohydrate, are the most common active ingredients in antiperspirants, and they work by physically blocking the sweat duct to decrease the amount of moisture available for bacteria growth,” says Dr. Stewart. They can cause skin sensitivity and irritant dermatitis in people who have prior inflamed skin, and they have been linked to health concerns, but according to Dr. Stewart, “no substantial evidence exists to support these claims”.

eliminate synthetic ingredients.” It took over 12 months and 68 trials for Kiehl’s to get the balance of each ingredient in its Pure Vitality Cream correct, while also ensuring the end result was aesthetically and sensorially appealing. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENC DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NATURAL AND CERTIFIED CERTIFI ORGANIC?

The difference lies in the certification, ce says Andrew Monk, chairman chairm of Australian Organic. Certified organic products p are free of harsh synthetic pesticides, pest hormones and antibiotics, plus are cru cruelty-free and socially responsible. In order ord to obtain the certification, the organisati organisation undergoes an annual on-site inspection, inspectio says Monk. “They are required to submit subm an organic plan, which details how they the will manage their operation in accordance accordan with the requirements in the organic standard. Then, they need to provide a detailed list of the products, ingredients, ingredients suppliers and any other information tthat is required for the certification certificatio team to prove its eligibility.” When it comes to accreditation, accred there isn’t just one generic form f of “organic”—there are three d different types, all of which carry the their own logo. 100% organic signifies that tha all ingredients, excluding water and salt, are ar certified organic. Certified organic is when the product contains a minimum mini of 95 per cent certified organic orga ingredients, while products labelled Made with organic ingredients contain 70 to 95 per cent certified organic ingredients. There are no official guidelines, however, that quantify a product as “natural”. Unless a produ product is certified, says Monk, be cautious cau of its claims, as the product

doesn’t “undergo testing or follow specific requirements, and is not approved by a third party”. This doesn’t mean that products claiming to be natural don’t contain natural or naturally derived ingredients, but if you’re concerned about the authenticity it may be wise to to check the ingredients list and delve deeper into those that you haven’t heard of or previously used. “Ingredients that make up over one per cent of the overall content [of a product] should be listed in descending order of concentration,” says Monk. If the product contains certified ingredients, “they will be marked to differentiate them from the non-organic ingredients, and it will be explained on the packaging”. A SIMPLE TRANSITION It’s important to remember that your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it does absorb what you slather on it. If you’re considering trying certified organic or natural skincare, as with any new product, it’s best to incorporate it gradually to allow your skin to adjust.

TOP 10 TRAVEL TRICKS

PLANNING A GETAWAY THIS SUMMER? HERE'S THE LOWDOWN ON THE KIT YOU'LL NEED TO TAKE WITH YOU by HAYLEY D'ONOFRIO photographed by PHILIP LE MASURIER

WHEN YOU LAND You'll need to factor in your destination when it comes to packing the rest of your beauty products, however a holiday isn't the time to start a new regimen. Instead, decant skincare products into travel-sized containers, like Manicare Travel Bottles ($5.50 for a set of 2; manicare.com.au). If you're jetting off to somewhere cool, it might be wise to add a serum, moisturiser or face mask with hyaluronic acid to your stash for an extra hydration boost if and when required—this can help prevent freezing temperatures wreaking havoc with your complexion.

IN FLIGHT If you want your skin to be in tip-top shape upon landing, it's important to pack some on-board essentials. Hydration is crucial: due to the air-conditioning, high altitude and recirculated air on planes, dryness, dehydration, redness and inflammation are just some of the common side effects your skin may experience. However it is important to adhere to the airline guidelines, the majority of which specify no liquids over 100mls be taken on board international flights. Always ensure products are secured tightly and stored safely in a clear case.

The electro-pop singer stars in blockbusters and rocks body art inspired by her bad-ass parents, Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz. Here, the YSL Beauty muse reveals the meaning behind the ink and how she embraces fame on her own terms


Beauty MY MUM DOESN’T WEAR A LOT OF MAKE-UP, BUT WATCHING THE WAY SHE ELEVATED HER BEAUTY, HIGHLIGHTING HER FEATURES AS OPPOSED TO CREATING NEW ONES, ALWAYS INSPIRED ME”

H

ow has your approach to your style and beauty looks evolved over the years? “When I was younger, I had this incredibly

What did your mum teach you about beauty?

“She doesn’t wear a lot of make-up, but watching the way she elevated her beauty, highlighting her features as opposed to creating new ones, always inspired me. Also, I plucked my eyebrows really thin when I was 15. She said if I ever touched my brows again she would kill me.”

rebellious spirit. I just wanted to be natural and silly-looking and not appear perfect all the time, because it’s a lot of pressure, you know? On the red carpet, everyone started to look the same, like a Barbie doll, and it made me really uncomfortable. So I think I was just about claiming, ‘Okay, if I’m going to be a part of this world, I want to do it in my own way.’ But I think I’ve found a way to feel comfortable, looking like I put effort into the way I look, and still feel like I’m being myself.”

OCTOBER 2013 “I wanted a dramatic look without having to do much. I usually go for eyes over lips because you don’t have to think about re-applying all night”

Piercings and tattoos: have any favourites—or regrets? “I’m pretty happy with my choices in that

realm. I have my brother’s and sister’s names tattooed on me, and I have ‘mama’ tattooed on the inside of my arm, from a letter that my mum wrote me.” So your parents support your body art? “Oh, yeah. I mean, they can’t say anything— they’re covered in tattoos.”

Growing up, did you think of your parents as beautiful? “People would tell me all the time, and I

don’t think I understood. I can see that they’re beautiful people, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve also come to understand their importance within the entertainment industry, because they are unique. They show a different side of beauty that isn’t always highlighted.”

Any beauty risk you’re still desperate to take?

“Honestly, I would love to bleach my hair again. And I really want to shave my head. It would be nice if it felt right for a role.” —SUZANNE ZUCKERMAN

MAY 2014 “I’m blonde for a role. The dots under my eyes make my pupils look bigger. I saw a photo of a ’60s chick doing it and thought it was cool”

JANUARY 2015 “Unless there’s a reason to get dolled up, I prefer a natural look. Simple eyeliner and foundation are better if you’re not sure what to do”

3 ARCONA TABULA RASA SPOT REPAIR “If I’m eating too much sugar or not sleeping enough, I see it in my skin. This [spot repair] is great for pimples because it’s a bit astringent” Approx $39; at nordstrom.com 4

Master Make-Up Artist S EC R E TS OF A

The man who put Kim Kardashian’s cheekbones on the map, Mario Dedivanovic, reveals his best Insta-tricks, proving he can do far more than up your contouring game

PRIME WITH MOISTURISER Forget polymer-packed

stay-put potions: his preferred base is typically nothing more than a healthy layer of lotion—like Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturiser ($38; kiehls.com.au). “When you use a really emollient formula and let it absorb fully, your skin won’t soak up moisture from the make-up you put on top,” says Dedivanovic, meaning your blush won’t disappear by lunch. “The colours will last longer and remain creaseless.” CONTOUR LIPS WITH CONCEALER Cheekbones aren’t the only features that Dedivanovic “lifts” with make-up. To ensure lips appear less droopy, he first applies lipstick. Then, with a fine-tipped make-up brush, he “cheats the corners”, painting concealer under the lower lip and bringing the cover-up cream slightly over the lipstick at the outer edges of the mouth so that they look more tapered and upturned. To finish, he sets the concealer with powder. “This also keeps colours from bleeding,” he explains. RESIST THE ALLURE OF FALSE LASHES Oddly,

considering his famously doe-eyed clientele (as well as Kardashian, there’s Priyanka Chopra and Gabrielle Union, to name a few), Dedivanovic isn’t a big fan of falsies. He thinks strips of them can look, well, fake. For a fully realised flutter, he clamps a lash curler over the fringe of the eyelash for five seconds—try Relevée Lash Curler by Surratt Beauty ($44; at mecca.com.au)—then brushes on mascara from root to tip, wiggling the wand at the base of the lashes so that every hair gets coated. While they’re wet, he separates hairs with a lash comb and allows them to dry. The results are much more realistic yet no less dramatic. WATERCOLOUR YOUR EYELIDS Dedivanovic always works with a glass of H2O on hand.

Whether he’s using powder or cream eyeshadows, he dips his brush into water before applying each coat, sheering out the formula so he can build-up the colour intensity.

With more than a decade of industry experience, Dedivanovic is passionate about inspiring the beauty community, and teaches classes to budding make-up artists around the world

YOU’RE LAYERING ON POWDERS AND CREAMS One word: cakey. “You need to layer textures only if you’re going in front of a camera for 12 hours,” he says. For a subtle take, stick to powder: dust a deeper shade in the hollows of cheeks and a lighter one above the bones.

2

YOU’RE CONTOURING IN THE MORNING “The technique can look heavy-handed in natural daylight,” says Dedivanovic. So unless you’re staging an elaborate selfie, think of contouring like you would a pair of Swarovskicovered Choos and save it for evenings out.

3

YOU’RE WORKING ON BARE SKIN This produces a severe contrast between your cosmetics and your complexion. Dedivanovic applies an ultra-hydrating, water-based foundation or tinted moisturiser before sweeping on contouring powder so the shadows blend and appear realistic.

4

YOU’RE USING A SPONGE Although he packs close to 100 brushes in his case, Dedivanovic swears by this trio for most cheek work: an angled brush for contouring, a powder brush to highlight, and a blush brush to top the apples of cheeks with a pop of pink.

5

YOU GO OTT ON THE CONTOURING Real talk: just because you spot a trend on Instagram, it doesn’t mean you have to do it, too. If you already have, say, cheekbones as sharp as marquise diamonds, hold off. Contouring could end up giving you a “theatrical” look, warns Dedivanovic.

CHIN DOWN, EYES UP

SOPHISTICATED SELFIES DON’T JUST HAPPEN

With 2.8 million-plus followers on his Instagram, @makeupbymario, Dedivanovic knows how to curate a compelling feed. The savvy social media superstar reveals his beauty prep go-tos for that perfect snap GROOM YOUR BROWS

SEAL THOSE LIPS

GET GOOD LIGHTING

Most people have little hairs that fall downward in the inner corners of their brows, which can appear unpolished in close-up shots, says Dedivanovic. “Right before snapping, spritz a bit of hairspray on a spoolie brush and sweep brows up and into place,” he says.

Nothing makes you want to tap an air-brushing app like the sight of a peeling, pout. Dedivanovic recommends using either a sugar scrub or, in a pinch, a dampened face cloth to lightly slough the surface before smoothing with a waxy balm. Apply your lip colour, then relax into a comfortable smile.

“It’s almost as important as good make-up,” he says. If you’re not in natural daylight or near a window, consider investing in a LuMee phone case (approx $71 for iPhone 6; lumee. com). Framed with LEDs, take selfies in a soft-focus glow (adjustable with a dimmer switch) so you look luminous in every snap.

A bra that contours and minimises can reduce the appearance of your bust by up to one cup size, while also smoothing out bulges along the back and sides.

Your motto: never enough padding. Go for a style that pushes you up from the bottom and sides, and then flaunt it with demi coverage cups.

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

Styles with side slings (the fabric fixed to the inner sides of a cup) pull things together, as does a band that’s wider under the arms.

A front closure clasp makes it easier to get a bra on and off with restricted movement, while soft cups are ideal for fitting in spacers and prosthetic inserts, post-mastectomy.

Sure, this has your standard front flaps for convenient access and stretch to work with a fluctuating shape, but trimmed in lace, it’s also pretty damn chic.

A silicone gripper that runs along the band under your bust will prevent a strapless style from slipping. Cups that mould to your body also offer added support.

cause body oils to break down the fibres, meaning your bras will age more quickly than they should. 2. HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR THEM? Handwashing is best, but even lingerie professionals admit they don’t have the time. Instead, hook the back, take out any removable pads, and place your bra in a mesh

bag that can go in your machine. Set on the cold delicate cycle with other light clothing (i.e., not towels) and be sure to hang-dry, as dryers will ruin elastic and cups. 3. WHEN IS IT TIME TO REPLACE THEM? This depends on how often you wear them. For everyday bras, about every nine months or so when the band is stretched out.

1800s After four centuries of little change, France’s Herminie Cadolle revolutionises the corset by dividing it in to 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 debuts 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 Fashion Institute of Technology’s museum in New York, 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 the world catches on. Nylon becomes a popular fabric.

1970s Women say goodbye to the exaggerated moulds of the past four decades, opting for more comfortable, unstructured designs, including the first sports bra—which 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 favour of those that offer a more natural shape, catapulting pared-down 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 moulded cup bras made of thin stretch foam and self-adhesive 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 USD at auction in 2012.

1970s Though first patented in 1893,the push-up bra didn’t begin to dominate fashion until the 1980s (hello, Wonderbra), when “body-conscious fashions emphasised the figure in a new and revealing way”, says Hill. “Push-up bras helped create an idealised feminine figure.”

ON FITS & MISSES As the oft-quoted statistic goes, over 64 per cent 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. 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: 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: The back band rides up SOLUTION: Eighty per cent of a bra’s support comes from the band, 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. PROBLEM: The centre 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 centre front. 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.

Perfect for blending and applying shadow, this can be used all over the lid for an even distribution of pigment.

A super-narrow tip lets you reach between lashes; the angled head helps you create an immaculate wing, says make-up artist Kirin Bhatty.

The slanted brush head is ideal for bronzing around your cheeks and topping the apples with blush.

A domed brush can nestle powder around your nose, chin and under your eyes, says make-up artist Suzy Gerstein.

FOR TRAVEL

From silky soft smoky-eye brushes to travel-size must-haves, these sets are worth the spend

Bobbi Brown Travel Brush Set, $250; bobbibrown.com.au

ALWAYS blend foundation into your hairline and blush up toward your temples. You don’t want any lines of demarcation or an unnatural concentration of colour anywhere on your face, says Bhatty. NEVER dip your brush into make-up and apply it directly onto your face; this leads to a splotchy, uneven distribution of colour, says make-up artist Allan Avendaño. Blot your brush or give it a hard tap to shake off excess pigment before getting near your face. ALWAYS put on make-up in light, sheer layers. “This technique lets you slowly build colour intensity and ensures your colour wears off evenly,” says Gerstein.

NEVER sweep eyeshadow over your lids like a windshield wiper. Pat on a layer of pigment with the flat side of your brush before using the tip to blend it in, Martin says. You’ll get less fall-out that way, which means less make-up to dust off later.

Natural hair is best for grabbing and blending powders like blushes and eyeshadows, says Martin. But to apply liquids or creams (like foundation, for example), go for synthetic brushes, which distribute product without absorbing it, so you’ll get an even, seamless finish, he says.

Miami used to be known as the playground of bronzed beach babes, but in the past 15 years, the coastal destination has morphed into a contemporary-art mecca, thanks to the annual Art Basel fair each December and cultural centres like the waterfront Pérez Art Museum. Plus, the city’s hotel circuit boasts some of the best spas, pools and nightlife spots on the East Coast of the US.

The great Australian dream has typically involved owning your own home, with a spacious garden to accommodate a growing family. Yet designer Anita Horn found this notion wasn’t for her. “We’ve lived in houses with big backyards before and the kids never used it,” she says of her three teenagers. It was then that the homewares retailer had a brilliant solution: “Bring the garden inside the house.” As a result, her open-plan home in the coastal village of Canggu, Bali, is punctuated with lush greenery; palm trees, ferns and leafy vines have made their home among the vast collection of antique furniture, while natural light pours in through the high, Georgian-style windows. “It is basically a lounge room, but you’re sitting in the garden inside the house,” Horn says. The pool acts as an extension of the living area, seamlessly melding indoor and outdoor spaces to create a tranquil setting. “It becomes very busy in Canggu, hectic actually,” she says of her adopted home. “So when you’re inside the house, it’s got a very calm and healing feeling about it.” Horn found herself in Bali for production purposes during the early days of her childrenswear label, Little Horn. After spotting a gap in the market, she and her partner Sean Cosgrove launched the Corner Store, one of the first retail cafes in busy Oberoi Street in Seminyak. When the couple amicably went their separate ways, Horn relocated her family from Melbourne–her Australian base at the time–to Bali more permanently. Inspiration for her current residence came from her native New Zealand, a “tiny little town” called Opotiki on the North Island, where she fondly remembers “massive, big old barns” that dotted the undulating landscape around her childhood home. Designing the space with the help of her architect friend Jane Swinson, Horn wanted to create a living environment that was both secure for her family and visually striking. A high, grey concrete wall surrounds the property, yet it is far from oppressive: the blank space is enlivened by graffiti-style artwork by one of Australia’s most renowned contemporary artists, Anthony Lister. Rustic, farmhouse-style sliding doors painted in blue pastel provide a dynamic entrance to a treasure trove of antiquities.

The architecture works harmoniously with nature, providing a tranquil living space where Horn’s antique furniture blends in with the timber surrounds.

0GDCĀ,MKC CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Vines hanging over the polished concrete bench lend a tropical feel to the kitchen; Horn’s ensuite is minimalist with an antique chair adding a plush touch; the property’s external wall has been decorated by Australian contemporary artist Anthony Lister. OPPOSITE: In Horn’s bedroom, the black frame of the iron bed and door anchor an otherwise light and airy space, complemented by lighter-hued walls and a vintage sketch. Vertical plants seen through the glass add a touch of green.


Having left New Zealand to pursue a career in modelling at age 15, Horn spent extended periods of time overseas. “I went to Japan, and I’ve really been travelling around ever since. I’m a bit of a gypsy in that way,” she says. The influence of her nomadic lifestyle is evident throughout her interior design aesthetic: over the years she has scoured the far corners of the world–from Argentina to Morocco, Mexico and Jakarta–to find pieces that give a worldly feel to the four-bedroom abode. Founding the gallery-like boutique, Horn Emporium, which now assumes a two-storey space on the retail strip of Batu Bolong Beach, was a good excuse for her global exploration. “I used to collect a lot of things, and everything [in  the house] is from all around the world,” she says of her one-of-a-kind furnishings, which include sculptures and textiles ranging in age from 50 years to over a century old. Horn certainly has an eye for detail, and our conversation is paused several times so she can give direction to a photoshoot she is styling simultaneously. “They’ve got the wrong cushions,” Horn chuckles. “You can’t have that cushion there, see how you can see the other side of it?” Not surprisingly, it’s a colourful display of cushions that draws the eye when entering Horn’s lounge room, made with vintage fabrics sourced from Morocco to bring brightness to the carefully curated space. These bohemian accents are mixed seamlessly with more classical Western motifs, showcasing Horn’s creative touch. Spirituality, which is integral to Balinese culture, is incorporated into the home, too. “In my bedroom is a whole collection of spirits, saints and gods, as well as mystical creatures, on all the artwork,” says Horn. The space, which she refers to as her “haven”, also features a polished iron bed frame that has been given her bespoke treatment: “Normally those iron beds come in only double sizes, and you’re lucky to find a queen, but I extended it out into a super king.” Flowing on from the dark green, minimalist ensuite, which boasts a statement antique armchair, is a dressing room, and beyond that a space Horn uses for yoga and meditation. She explains this daily practice, for herself and for her children, is an important aspect of acknowledging the Balinese way of life. The open-plan living area is also graced with ceremonial offerings, which might include a sprinkling of fragrant frangipanis or lit incense: “You have to have respect for the culture,” Horn affirms. Having lived in Bali for more than a decade, Horn has grown accustomed to the slower lifestyle on the Indonesian island, in so far as she now experiences culture shock whenever she returns to the busyness of Australia. “When I go to Australia, I just get such a fright crossing the street!” Living on Bali time (“there are things that are so simple that can take up your whole day here”) is something she is in no rush to escape. “There is so much beauty here,” Horn enthuses from her balcony, as she looks out over the rolling rice fields. “It’s a very special island.” Q

The contemporary design was conceived by Horn with architect JaneSwinson.

Curios collected on Horn’s travels take pride of place, such as this antique Japanese geisha. OPPOSITE: Horn in her light-filled sanctuary.

Remote Control

No longer limited to sci-fi movies and A-list homes, smart technology has made its way into our daily lives TRY IT “We spend approximately 90 per cent of our time inside,” says Hugo Wilson, Design Lead at Dyson, so why not make our home as comfortable as possible? From mattresses that can adjust their firmness automatically, to purifiers that clean but also analyse our air, intelligent products inform us and can boost our wellbeing, too.

HOW TO Create a central tech hub by investing in devices that “talk” to each other. By ensuring that all technology can sync up—from your smart TV to your stereo—you can enjoy single-touch control and streamline all gadgets in the home.

DO IT “You can quickly fall out of love with something that is easy to the eye, but doesn’t do the job,” warns Wilson, so ensure that function guides design. Invest in a smart hub to centrally control your home tech.

Vera Wang

THE DIA RY

Being the CEO and creator behind a fashion empire that does anything from design dresses for the likes of Michelle Obama to glassware for Wedgwood, leaves Vera Wang with little spare time. But she always makes sure to get a good night’s sleep. “The ability to relax amid the chaos is one of my greatest gifts,” she says. 7 AM

8 AM

Prime time I wake up around 7am 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 favourite thing to eat for breakfast is an omelette 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.

Team work 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.

Business lunch 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 favourite 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 from Ralph Lauren, who was my mentor. People might think that when you license your name, you just get a cheque, 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 deal. Embrace Rose Buds and Vanilla EDT, $39/30ml; 1800 812 663.

6 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. I 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.

Seven days a week I try to leave the office at about 6pm, 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 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.

Hitting the heights with high-rise boots

Family and friends 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.

MY TIME ENGAGE “I’m not a huge exercise person, but I love to play golf at Liberty National, in Jersey City, NJ, or at the 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 favourite things. It feels like a mini-spa. The other is having my hair blowdried. 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; it has taken me another two months to figure out how to frame it, so that’s 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.”

DAILY MANTRA

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.

For my first capsule collection with Sportscraft, we put together a resort range [inspired by] what you could take with you in a suitcase and a reinvention of those outfits in different ways.” The pieces are... “Versatile [and] can be dressed up for dinner, and some dressed down for the beach. They’re all beautifully made in linens, silks and cottons, with some delicate embroidery and some nice off-the-shoulder stuff going on, too. Drawstring linen shorts can be worn many different ways, with one of the linen tops or one of the colour tops.” The items I can’t stop wearing from the collection... “The handbag and shoes are just classic summer accessories that can be worn year-round. It’s all about the tassels right now. The shoe [left, Nomad leather sandal, $200; at sportscraft.com. au] is a versatile slide that can be worn to the beach or dinner. There’s an off-the-shoulder dress and top that are very pretty, and I love a sun hat.”

My off-duty uniform is... “Jeans and T-shirts all the time; I love when the season changes and playing around with that. Loose fitting tops [for summer] and, in the winter, pulling out the boots and coats.” My favourite thing about summer back home... “Getting into the ocean. It’s the first thing I like to do when I land in Sydney.” My favourite place in Australia... “I love the beaches...we’re so spoilt, even Bondi [right], which is 10 minutes from the city, is such a beautiful beach. Bronte, Coogee, all of those, too! When you live in America, you have to drive quite a long way to get to beautiful beaches.” My idea of a perfect escape... “I love getting to my mum’s place in the Byron Hinterland [in NSW]; she’s got a beautiful property with tons of green and a little river moving through it.” The last meal I made... “Roast chicken, with pasta, tomatoes, arugula [rocket], basil, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.” My workout of choice... “I’m really into hot yoga right now.” The tune I’m always listening to in the gym... “Random hits on Pandora.” Next season I will be wearing… “Big coats, big boots and I don’t mind wide-leg jeans right now.” If I wasn’t acting I would be… “Sleeping! [laughs]. I’d be working with children.” What I’m most proud of… “My kids [Alexander and Samuel, left].” The biggest fashion mistake I’ve made… “Oh God, there have been many! Big patterns or big fabrics they never work on me because I’m small.” My all-time favourite movie… “Harold and Maude [below].” Words to live by… “Enjoy it.” In my make-up bag I always carry… “A concealer, Volume Million Lashes mascara from L’Oreal, and many lipsticks—a good lipstick can always double as a rouge.” My favourite lipstick… “I love red. I also love a berry, sort of plum with a blue base. It can’t be orange, I find plum suits me better.” My signature scent… “I love a musky or floral one.” I take my coffee… “Just black.” My favourite books are… “Women In Love by DH Lawrence, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë and The Catcher In The Rye by JD Salinger.” My travel essentials… “Sunblock, moisturiser, and things that remind me of home.”
