This his ed editor’s letter was due right after the election, tion so needless to say, I was late. It seemed an odd time to speak k of fashion, of fancy things and fancyy peoplee. But I’m an optimist—I can’t help it. Myy favoritte T-shirt (pictured on me here, at the airpo ort) says “Keep on keepin’ on.” Myy favorite new llooks have rainbows on them (I have the accesssories palette of an 8-yearold), and myy favorite new chandelier earrings make me feel like a queen. This issue is also a full of some of my favorite m people: p p our cover star, Sarah Jessica Parker—New York’s Tinker Bell—on p. 75, and the hilarious Billyy Eichner, on p. 88. (Look out for Billyy in a mesh Balmain cape in our video on InStyle.com— yyou mayy never recover.) And, of ccourse, Nicole Kidman (p. 39), whom I have known for years aand was thrilled to present w y with the Style w y Icon Award at the InStyle Awards. So, yyeah, I will hold on o to optimism. Not just for me, but for all of yyou u. Enjoy m j y the h issue. i .

BEHIND THE SCENES WITH OUR JANUARY COVER STAR, SARAH JESSICA PARKER

J. Mendel dress

On a warm September morning, Sarah Jessica Parker arrived at our Manhattan rooftop shoot in a casual outfit, including her favorite Tory Sport striped pants. After getting camera-ready with her longtime glam team, hairstylist Serge Normant and makeup artist Leslie Lopez, the actress zeroed in on the footwear options, referring to a pair of Manolo Blahniks as “Carrie shoes.” Ultimately, she ascended a narrow spiral staircase wearing SJP pumps under her Alexander McQueen dress, proving the old adage that a true New Yorker can do anything in heels. 8

Monáe Talks Having already dominated the Billboard charts, singer Janelle Monáe is adding another bullet point to her résumé: movie star. Monáe made her big-screen début in the October indie Moonlight, and this month she holds her own alongside Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer in the NASA drama Hidden Figures. “Both scripts touched my heart,” she says. “Whether it’s music or acting, I want to leave meaningful art behind.”

rammy-nominated Swedish songwriter–turned–pop star Tove Lo is riding high with the release of her latest album, Lady Wood. Its tracks, including the ironic single “Cool Girl,” prove that rebuking fluffy pop conventions with self-reflective, soul-baring songs pays off. And Lo’s free-spirited personal style only serves to heighten her lyrical command of raw emotion: The self-proclaimed feminist proudly sports a Venus-symbol necklace and flashes concertgoers in support of #FreeTheNipple. Counting Janis Joplin and Courtney Love among her icons—“My style has a hippie-grunge vibe”—Lo is in the midst of an evolution. “The fashion world used to scare me because I didn’t know anything about it. But now I think it’s fun to try new styles,” says Lo, who’s based in New York. While she regularly performs barefoot and scantily clad, Lo recently began incorporating custom-made, curve-enhancing outfits and gold sneakers into her concert wardrobe (the North American tour for Lady Wood kicks off in February). “I like being out of my comfort zone. Musically, I write very personally, and it’s a challenge for me. It’s the same with clothes. It’s just a different expression of me as an artist.” –ANGELA SALAZAR

&?P@?P?4?JTGL STYLE CRUSH

AGE 23. INSTAGRAM @realbarbara palvin. HOW YOU KNOW HER Palvin’s modeling career kicked off over a decade ago when she was discovered on the streets of Budapest, Hungary. She made her official runway début for Prada at Milan Fashion Week in 2010, and she’s been working steadily for major fashion houses including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Miu Miu ever since. STYLE MANTRA “It’s really important for me to be comfortable in my own skin,” Palvin says. “If I don’t feel good in something, I’ll never wear it.” RED-CARPET APPROACH “I try to highlight the parts of my body that I think are strongest, like my small waist. Some people are fine showing a lot of skin, but I’m a little shy. I’m never going to put too much out there.” LABELS SHE LOVES “I’ve been wearing a lot of Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini recently for events, and Alexander Wang makes amazing everyday pieces. But I don’t put something on just because of the brand—it’s more important to me that it fits well.” STREET STAPLES “‘Easy’ is my key word. I’m most comfortable in

an oversize T-shirt with high boots.” COLOR THEORY “Black is flattering, and I think it makes everything look very clean and luxurious, especially when you see yourself in pictures later.” FOOTWEAR FAVES “Christian Louboutin is my red-carpet go-to. I also wear Rihanna’s Fenty for Puma sneakers all the time, as well as boots from Palvini, the shoe store that my family owns in Budapest.” SUITCASE STRATEGY “When I travel for work, I pack my luggage for all kinds of weather. I never know what might happen—I could end up in Iceland, and then I’d be glad I had my winter coat.” SLEEK SOUVENIR “When I was 16, I was given my first-ever present from work: a pair of Jitrois leather pants. I still have them to this day.” FASHION EVOLUTION “I’ve always preferred being casual and sporty, but as I get older I’m trying to dress more feminine. My outfit usually depends on my mood, though. One day I’ll wear something super-delicate and girlie, and then the next day I’m like, ‘Yo, what’s up?’ and dressing totally different with a snapback on.” —SAMANTHA SIMON

In ALBERTA FERRETTI in Venice

1 “For the airport I usually borrow a friend’s giant men’s hoodie a and training pants,” says Palvin. 2 The L’Oréal spokesmodel a added a dramatic touch in New Y York City: “I’m very into wearing a dark bordeaux lip right now.”

Sienna is one of the few people I know who choose a look based on whether it makes them smile. If it’s a little eccentric and can make her laugh, even better! She loves the poetry of fashion, those little details like a tulle ruffle or a flash of sequins that make an outfit so incredibly satisfying. And since she doesn’t take her clothes or hair and makeup too seriously, she always looks like herself-just in a really fancy dress. —KATE YOUNG, Sienna Miller’s stylist

The intimate dinner party, held atop the Richard Meier–designed modernist museum, celebrated the year’s most fashionable Hollywood players, from Style Icon of the Year Nicole Kidman to Designer of the Year Tom Ford. “You’ll often hear creative people say they don’t care about awards, but they’re lying,” joked Ford as he accepted his statuette. “I love awards.” Among others, honors were given to Shailene Woodley for her environmental activism and Priyanka Chopra for her breakout style. Near the end of the night, Laura Dern took the stage to present Kidman with the final award. “Style gave me the ability to dress and behave in the world the way I do,” Kidman said. “Fashion makes you feel special, and I love that.” —KIM PEIFFER

HOME New York City AGE 25 HOW YOU KNOW HER The only female lead in Atlanta, Beetz plays the on-again off-again girlfriend of Donald Glover’s character, Earn. WHAT’S NEXT Atlanta’s second season premieres in the spring.

ZAZIEBEETZ LAST FALL SHE BECAME ONE TO WATCH THANKS TO HER ROLE ON THE HIT FX SHOW ATLANTA. NOW, AS THE SERIES GEARS UP FOR SEASON 2, THE ACTRESS SHARES WHY SHE THINKS TRUE POWER LIES IN EMBRACING INDIVIDUALITY by SHALAYNE PULIA

You hold your own acting against Donald Glover, who created Atlanta. What’s it like to work with him? I find him to be a very comforting presence. He’s super-grounded and so supportive. What do you want viewers to get out of the show? It portrays four very different people, who happen to be black, living day-to-day. And I think you can’t just group them together. Even though they all grew up in the same city, there’s a spectrum of experience, class, thought, and values. I like representing different kinds of black people—showing they exist. Your character, Vanessa, has been lauded for her realness. How do you connect with her? To see Van and think “she’s just an angry woman who’s annoyed with this man” takes her character out of context. Really, she has no other options. She has no fallback, and that’s really stressful and difficult. In tiny ways I can relate to that, but I’m probably more naïve than her and less jaded. I think that she’s been through a lot more. Fans of the show have commented a lot online about her look—have people brought that up with you? Definitely. Her hair has become very popular, which is great. For me, a big thing growing up was naturalness—both in being and appearance. My mom never let me relax my natural hair. For so long I thought I was ugly, and I still sometimes struggle with that. But now I’ve come to feel like this is me. Atlanta is being called very progressive for showing a fresh perspective. Where do you think we are in terms of representation in popular culture? We can push further. The truth is all kinds of people exist everywhere. So let’s tell their stories too. Even though all this dialogue is going on, I sometimes feel a little bit reduced to my race. I’m more than just black. What do you want to stand for instead? I identify with my womanhood before anything else because that’s what I deal with when I am alone. It doesn’t have to be about being black or white. You can just be yourself. That’s enough.


As usual, you saw that coming. There are a lot of things that are easy to see coming, like man buns and homemade kombucha going out of style, but some things are a little harder to detect. Like that pedestrian unexpectedly jaywalking. That’s why Toyota Safety Sense™ P,1 including a Pre-Collision System2 with Pedestrian Detection,3 comes standard on the new 2017 Corolla.

I LIKE TO THINK OF GOING TO THE GYM M as a way to stay strong rather than a way to lose weight. Yes, I model a lot of swimsuits and lingerie, but to me exercising is more about being healthy and feeling good. So I set goals for myself like “I’m going to work out three days this week” instead of “I’m going to lose 3 pounds this week.” Then I let whatever is supposed to jiggle, jiggle, you know? Lately y I’ve been obsessed with boxing, and when en II’m sweating and kicking ass in front of 30 other people at the gym, it helps to dress the part too. Sometimes all it takes is great high-waist leggings or colorful sneakers to give me the extra little fire I need.

#FOLGERSFEELSLIKEHOME Tabitha Blue of FreshMommyBlog.com has a busy schedule, so she takes time to relax by getting cozy and indulging her eye for style. Here’s how she stays comfy and fashionforward in her favorite place: home.

KICK BACK AND RELAX One of Tabitha’s favorite things to do is to cuddle on the couch with a book and a cup of Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend Coffee. She loves how the smooth, delicious flavor is a standout even with milk and sugar.

LIP SERVICE Tabitha makes sure she always looks her best by adding a pop of color. Whether it’s a berry tone, a sassy red, or a burnt sienna, a fun lipstick pulls almost any outfit together and adds a quick finishing touch.

WARM UP A darker, richer hair color gives Tabitha a fresh new look, and all she needs is a quick trip to the stylist!

CLEAN SWEEP A minimalist at heart, Tabitha’s first step in keeping her wardrobe current is dividing clothes into three piles: keep, donate, or toss. Her golden rule: “If I didn’t wear it last year, I probably won’t wear it now.”

TABITHA’S FAVORITE TREAT What’s better than warm cinnamon buns right out of the oven? They make the whole house smell delicious!

EVERY CUP OF #FOLGERSFEELSLIKEHOME Share your favorite at-home coffee moments with #FolgersFeelsLikeHome, and include #ContestEntry and tag @RealSimpleLifestylers for a chance to win* a great prize package from Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend!

,GJ?ñ? WITH HER THREE VERY YOUNG KIDS, NEW MIND-BODY BOOK, AND HIGH-MAINTENANCE HUSBAND, ALEC, HIL ARIA BALDWIN MAY BE THE ULTIMATE EXPERT ON BAL ANCE

Baldwin and her brood, from left: Leonardo, Carmen, and Rafael

,

ilaria Baldwin is doing a downward-facing dog. New York’s most public yogi isn’t doing such things on rooftops anymore. Or on railroad tracks, bulldozers, or helipads. She’s on a mat next to me, inviting me to join her. I’m attempting to get some zen from the author of The Living Clearly Method, which distills her wellness practices into a five-pronged program for a fitter, happier life. I dread all yoga, but in particular the wrist-wrenching, shoulder-straining maneuver Baldwin moves through with the ease of a shrug. “Saying you’re too inflexible for yoga is like saying you’re too dirty to take a bath,” she tells me. “That’s my favorite quote.” Her credentials are impeccable: Not only has she run the popular Yoga Vida studio for seven years, but she can also type on a computer with her knees behind her shoulders, as her 200,000-plus Instagram followers know well. Baldwin sun-saluted her way into the limelight in 2014, when she was posting a yearlong series of daily yoga poses, many of them shot around her home turf of New York City, often with her baby daughter, Carmen, in tow.

MARCELO KRASILCIC

That she was Alec Baldwin’s newish wife only added to the intrigue. How could a beaming exhibitionist and a notoriously press-averse cynic get along, let alone marry? Two more years and two more children later—17-monthold Rafael and Leonardo, born in September—she has transformed her Instagram feed into a cozy jumble of perfectly imperfect family moments, rife with smoochy babies, sleepy eyes, and stolen moments for leg lifts. Noteworthy too are the glimpses of an Alec Baldwin you don’t see elsewhere: joyful, unburdened, and seemingly in love with it all. Her dogged social media upkeep is born of a desire to define herself rather than letting the paparazzi do it. “I think everybody wants to be seen,” she says. “I want to be seen. I want people to know who I am.” When Baldwin, 33, arrives at the studio she co-owns, she’s makeup-free and absurdly pretty, her coloring a soft wash of peach and ambers. She’s wearing Lululemon yoga pants—“I have, like, 500 pairs,” she says—along with a gray V-neck T-shirt and Prada zipper booties. She hasn’t slept. “You’re my boss today,” she tells me wearily, and I’m tempted to order her back home to her month-


old baby because I remember too well the milky, sleepless haze that swallows you up for weeks after giving birth. Chief on her mind today is balance, one of her book’s core principles. With a trio of children under 3, she’s never needed it more. “I co-sleep with my kids until they learn to sleep in their beds. Because I’m breast-feeding, it’s a lot easier,” she says. “So I’m up with the baby all night and then all day long I’m running in between the other two. I’m trying to figure out how I can be the best mom to each one.” Not to mention a spouse with needs of his own. “My husband is really someone who likes to have, as he calls it, ‘his girlfriend.’ He says, ‘You’re my wife, but you’re my girlfriend first, and I don’t want to lose my girlfriend,’” she says. “He just wants to have private time with me—but hopefully not have another baby right now!” She describes Alec as her “polar opposite” but adds that anyone who perceives her as the lightweight here is dead wrong. “We’re both strong personalities,” she says. “People look at him like, ‘Oh, he married this girl who’s 26 years younger than him. Oh, she’s so tiny!’ But we both needed strong partners, and there are different forms of strength. Together, we have a loud strength. We talk a lot. We spend the majority of our time together. Have I helped him with his stress? Absolutely. Has he helped me with mine? Absolutely. I’m somebody who wants human touch. I want a hug.” Alec must have doled out a lot of them while she was pulling together the book, a dense 250-page volume whose writing spanned two pregnancies. Living Clearly isn’t a rigid script for weight loss or fitness so much as a series of practices designed to make life calmer and more manageable, focusing on balance, perspective, breathing, grounding, and letting go. There are dozens of yoga poses and 17 recipes, several involving quinoa. The book, says Baldwin, took years to marinate. “There’s a difference in what goes on when I’m teaching 70 people in my classroom and when I’m teaching one-on-one,” she says. “I feel like I found a way to explain what happens in my classroom to a big group of people.” In person, Baldwin comes across primarily as generous, which is refreshing for a selfie star. While other influencers in the exercise space traffic in narcissism and call it #fitspo, she seems genuinely concerned with the welfare of her fellow humans. “We have people come in and maybe they can’t touch their toes, but it doesn’t make the person less special than you,” she tells instructors she trains. “They could be writers, doctors, incredible parents—they could’ve had the hardest day. You have all of these bodies in front of you that you’re in charge of for 65 minutes, and it’s your opportunity to take care of them, not to judge them.”

The harder part is not judging yourself in her presence. On a flexibility scale of zero to Hilaria, I’m somewhere between Mitch McConnell and a cinder block, which becomes painfully apparent as she leads me through three yoga poses that we film for training purposes. Baldwin, a dancer since age 2, moves fluidly, inhabiting her skin fully and easily. Trying to jerk my own form through the poses alongside her is like being on a bad double date with the world’s happiest couple. Later, watching the video, I detect the unmistakable protrusion of a baby belly—and it’s not hers. The stark proof that I still have a rampant case of “mommy body” nearly six years after my last delivery is made no less devastating by Baldwin’s flat abs a mere four weeks after hers. But who am I kidding? Mine isn’t just mommy body anymore. It’s desk-job body. Bad-posture body. Not-enough-sleep body. Eating-my-kids’-leftovers body. “The important thing to realize is that your body is brilliant,” she tells me. “Your body works just as well as mine.” If that were actually the case, I can think of someone at home (hi, honey!) who would be as happy as Alec, so I keep Hilaria in mind the next week while trying to Live Clearly. I eat quinoa for lunch, skip the nightly wine (a few times), and do yoga semidiligently. At work, when it’s time for the hourly round of calisthenics her book prescribes, I get coffee instead. I’m too constrained for a standing desk, let alone in-office squats. On the emo front, I do manage to pause for a grounding moment when complications arise on a work project. I defuse a potential road-rage blowup and make it into a polite exchange, a first not only for me but possibly for all of N.Y.C. I maintain perspective after yet another zinger from someone who ladles out critiques like matzo balls. And when one of my kids starts haranguing me while I’m deep into a concerning email, I reach into my toolbox and...snap at him, just like before. My downward dog is pretty killer, though. Q

Saying you’re too inflexible for yoga is like saying you’re too dirty to take a bath.”

[Plastic surgery] is such a personal thing. My philosophy is: If it makes you happy, then do it. But honestly, who f—ing cares?” or your new movie, Tully, you reportedly gained 35 pounds. You also underwent a dramatic transformation for your Oscar-winning turn as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster. Tell us a little bit about the role that appearance plays in your acting. I think the exterior

says a lot about somebody’s life. [It’s like a mirror] for the way we live our lives. If you live a hard life, you drink a lot, it’s going to show. For an actor, the physical appearance, and even the way you move and carry your body, is an important part of how you tell a story. Speaking of telling a story, you are also the face of Dior J’Adore fragrance. What do you like about the scent? Its subtlety. Some fra-

grances are so strong that when you hug someone, you can literally taste it in your mouth. This scent is complex without being overpowering. Whenever I wear it, my son says, “Mama smells nice!” How has being a mom affected your beauty routine? Honestly, I’ve never

been one of those people who could

spend hours in front of a mirror, so I’ve always gravitated toward products that can do a lot of things at once. I like my sleep—I’d rather keep it simple in the morning than wake up early and do a massive routine. Have you ever had any beauty disasters? The ’90s! The pencil-thin

eyebrows, the over-lined lips. And the amount of makeup that I wore in my 20s! Why wasn’t anyone like, “You have enough lipstick on—stop”?

I will also say this: I look at my mother’s skin—she’ll kill me for saying this, but she’s almost 64— and I get very excited because she has aged unbelievably well. If you could give younger women one piece of beauty advice, what would it be? Enjoy the moment you’re

I used to TAN ... with baby oil.

Sun exposure is the biggest skin saboteur: By producing celldestroying free radicals, rays can lead to dark spots, wrinkles, a leathery texture, and even cancer. The earlier you put down the oil, the better.

I’m a social SMOKER.

The more you light up, the worse your circulation becomes, which means that less blood and oxygen and fewer nutrients get to your skin. The habit also damages skin-firming collagen and elastin, says Dr. Zeichner.

I live in a SUPERPOLLUTED city.

Smoke, exhaust, and toxins in the air like carbon monoxide can settle into skin and disturb the barrier, causing dehydration and inflammation, says L.A. dermatologist Annie Chiu. Pollution also generates free radicals, prompting collagen breakdown.

I go to bed with MAKEUP on.

If this is a once-in-a-while thing, don’t lose sleep over it. If this is the norm, the cosmetics (plus daily dirt and pollution buildup) can result in irritation, clogged pores, and breakouts, says Dr. Chiu.

I’m STRESSED OUT all the time.

Round-the-clock freak-outs trigger spikes in the hormone cortisol, which can prompt inflammation and increase sugar levels in your blood. This means an attack on skinfirming collagen and an uptick in oil production, says Dr. Chiu.

I have a habit of POPPING PIMPLES.

Jabbed at a few in your teens? No worries. Are you still picking at your face every few days? Then you’re causing major inflammation that can create dark spots and scarring, says Dr. Chiu.

I DRINK a glass (or two) of wine a night.

First the good news: Red wine is rich in antioxidants. But knock back multiple glasses every night and you’ll become dehydrated and splotchy. Options like beer contain a lot of sugar, and high glucose can lead to chronic inflammation.

HOW TO FIX THE DAMAGE

SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair SPF 34, $68; skin medica.com.

If evidence of your epic spring-break bake-off surfaces (such as “freckles” on your cheeks), slather on an antioxidant cream like this, which contains enzymes that repair DNA damage, says N.Y.C. dermatologist Joshua Zeichner. Daily SPF prevents future harm.

Olay ProX Hydra Firming Cream, $40; olay.com.

Other than pitching your pack of cigarettes, use a rich nightly moisturizer with antioxidants (like vitamin C and niacinamide) plus peptides to stimulate collagen production, suggests Dr. Zeichner.

Murad City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer, $70/1.7 oz.; murad.com.

Shields up, people: Antioxidants stop free radicals from scavenging healthy skin cells, so apply an antioxidant serum every morning, then layer on a moisturizer that packs potent astaxanthin, green tea, or vitamin C.

Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes, $12/30; josiemaran cosmetics .com.

If you just can’t drag yourself to the bathroom for a proper wash, stash cleansing wipes in your nightstand. Even getting rid of surface debris helps unclog pores and minimize the bacteria that can lead to pimples.

Glossier Super Pure, $28; glossier .com.

Have you used the Headspace app yet? Along with working in a few minutes of meditation, add a calming hydrator to your daily skin-care routine. Look for soothing ingredients like chamomile, licorice, and niacinamide.

Use salicylic acid–fueled cleansers ts to keep pores clear. When breakouts happen, cover them two or three times a day with a drying lotion, or trry e the new Differin Gel, an adapalene le acne medication previously available only by prescription.

Lancôme Énergie de Vie Night Mask, $65; lancomeusa.com.

Differin Gel, $30/1.6 oz.; at drugstores.

On nights you know you’ll be drinking, pace yourself with a glass of water for every cocktail. Then go to sleep in a mask soaked with hydrators like hyaluronic acid and glycerin.

Do You Have SKINNY GENES? ARE YOU GENETICALLY PREDISPOSED TO DEVELOP A THIGH GAP? WIRED FROM BIRTH TO BE A SPRINTER? INSTYLE’S AMY SYNNOTT PUTS HER DNA TO THE TEST WITH A DIY SALIVA KIT

-

t isn’t every day that the first words out of my mouth are “No, thanks—I need to keep my saliva pristine.” But for once, coffee wasn’t the first thing on my mind when the alarm wailed and my husband rolled out the door to Starbucks. This morning I was going to test my fitness genes with a home DNA kit, and I wasn’t supposed to eat or drink anything for 30 minutes before taking it lest I contaminate my specimen—a scenario comically laid out by FitnessGenes CEO Dan Reardon when I called him yesterday to inquire about protocol. “Let’s say you ate a bacon

64

sandwich and some of that got left behind,” he said in a clipped British accent. “There’s a potential … well, it could look like you have pig DNA. There was one person who sent about five samples to us. Every time my team analyzed the cells, they were like, ‘Dan, I’m sure this isn’t human DNA.’” Today, as it is most days, my goal was to pass as human (no small task without my usual three cups of caffeine). The test—which would analyze more than 40 genetic variations related to fitness and nutrition using just a tiny specimen of cheek cells—promised to explain some of the greater mysteries of my ongoing love-hate relationship with exercise and food (and, hopefully, help fine-tune a regimen that would put an end to my newly acquired muffin top). “What the genetic information really tells us is your response to training,” explained Reardon, debunking the notion that certain genes translate directly into athletic prowess. “If, for example, the test shows you have a gene associated with endurance, it means you will benefit from that kind of training.” Having recently put on a few pounds, I didn’t need a hard sell. With two kids at home, a full-time job, and a new, longer commute that made it nearly impossible to exercise before work, I needed some fresh strategies— the more efficient, the better. And so it was that I found myself hunched over a plastic funnel at 7 a.m. on a Monday, swapping my saliva for a bit of hope. Three weeks later, I received an email that my results were in. The report was dense, covering everything from my genetic propensity for speed and endurance (fun fact: I carry a strength/power gene that has been found in almost every single Olympic 100-meter runner ever tested) to my ability to process caffeine (no surprise here: I’m a fast metabolizer). The test confirmed a lot of what I already knew (I’m an early riser and have two genes for blue eyes) or suspected from years of trial and error (when I eat saturated fat, it goes straight to my ass). The most disturbing revelation? Apparently, I carry two copies of the FTO “obesity gene.” Thanks, Mom and Dad. The more I read about how the FTO variant worked, the more I cringed with recognition. “Carriers of a particular version of the gene are biologically wired to eat more and feel


Is it possible that my genetic report was like some sort of sci-fi horoscope, riddled with enough germs of semiplausible truth that anyone could see herself in it?”

hungrier sooner,” the report explained. My mind flitted back to lunch: While my friend had gingerly sipped a small bowl of pea soup, I tore through my own soup, plus chicken and brussels sprouts. Then I ate her crackers. And then I went back for more crackers. “In ancient times, this gene may have been a straightforward survival mechanism,” I read from my report. “But it becomes problematic in a modern world with easy access to highenergy foods.” I laughed. Though I had invested a considerable amount of time in my adult life learning the calorie counts and nutritional breakdowns of different foods, I now find myself sitting all day at a desk, 5 feet away from a giveaway table routinely stocked with rainbow-colored Rice Krispies treats, Sprinkles cupcakes, and cookies iced in the likeness of Iris Apfel. It is a high-carb, sugar-laden jungle out there. Concerned, I called Clifford Rosen, a geneticist who conducted some of the seminal research on the FTO gene. Interestingly, the key study he did involved a different variant of the gene that had to do with fat storage, not

appetite. Still, he wasn’t convinced I should be alarmed. “There are so many variants in every genetic sequence that it’s almost impossible to make a prediction with this little information,” he told me. “The era of personalized medicine is definitely upon us, but the science for this is just not there yet.” Is it possible that my genetic report was like some sort of sci-fi horoscope, riddled with enough germs of semi-plausible truth that anyone could see herself in it? When I shared the report with Equinox Tier X trainer Matt Delaney, he also expressed skepticism. “Your genes are one piece of a multifaceted puzzle, and their expression is in no way absolute. They are about tendency, not inevitability, and should be looked at as such.” He says Equinox did a pilot program with genetic testing but moved away from it because the trainers felt the data was “not actionable” and that coaching based on tendencies was unrealistic. To be fair, Reardon himself never claimed that genes were destiny. In fact, the FitnessGenes kit seems designed to prove the opposite: that genetic potential can be manipulated and/or maximized with the right knowledge. To that end, each report comes with detailed workouts and nutritional advice based on your unique genetic profile and personal goals. My exercise plan included a mix of resistance, cardio, and high-intensity training (so I wouldn’t plateau). The nutritional guidelines happily contradicted virtually every bit of hard-core diet gospel I’d been given for the past 10 years: “Eat carbs,” b advised Reardon. “People with this version of ad the FTO gene can’t eliminate them because you w won’t be satisfied so you will end up eating more.” He did, however, advise me to limit my consumption of fat (yes, even the healthy consum kind). “People with your profile do better on a “P low-fat, high-protein diet with some carbs.” hig To curb my aappetite, I was told to eat five small, protein protein-packed meals throughout the day and avoid aany rogue snacking with glutamine [see supplement, left]. supple Six weeks into my genetic experiment, I am happy to report that I no longer look like re I’m carrying a food baby. My legs are toned, ca my muffin top is trimmed. I’m not working out more, I’m just working out better. The best part? I’m eating pasta again (and I don’t mean the spiralized-zucchini kind). And for that, I’d happily spit in a funnel all day.

LB: Tell me about your first Chanel show and working with Karl Lagerfeld.. SM: I did my first in 2008. And working g with Karl is kind of a dream, isn’t it? He sends us a drawing a couple of weeks before a show. Then I go into my London studio and we do a few variations. We start with the clothes, and the Chanel team refines it, but that can change again. I do what he wants, but sometimes I can play with it. LB: Did you ever make a hair mistake? SM: Those happen all the time. We’re constantly experimenting with looks, textures, and colors. Sometimes the mistakes we make in the studio turn out better than what we set out to achieve. The wigs for Chanel’s [Versaillesinspired] show got a gray rinse by mistake—but it worked out beautifully. LB: Is there a woman whose hair you’d really like to do? SM: The queen.

people been asking you to do a book, and when did you finally relent? SAM MCKNIGHT: The idea came through my posting old pictures on Instagram. I traveled with so much paper and archive books that the last time I moved, I thought, “Let’s get this digitized.” So we started working with an archivist, and I was asked if I’d like to do an exhibition [“Hair by Sam McKnight,” at London’s Somerset House through March 12, 2017].

o modern woman can define herself with a single word, especially in Hollywood. (Every actress has, at the very least, one TV pilot she’s written in her back pocket.)

LAURA BROWN: I’ve seen you wear the Je ne regrette rien

sweatshirt before. Where is it from? SARAH JESSICA PARKER: I’ve had this forever. I wear it constantly, inside out or face front. Somebody sent it to me. I don’t even know who. I just like it. It’s been washed a lot and has a nice fit. There’s a diaper pin that’s been on it for years. It goes in the machine like that. I’m sure it was from James Wilkie [her son, now 14]. He didn’t wear cloth diapers, but I’m sure it was his. LB: What influenced your style when you were younger? SJP: Probably street imagery and girls on the subway more than anything. I was like, “How can I do that? How can I afford to do that? What’s my version of that?” Honestly, thrift stores played such a huge part in my life before Sex and the City. And, of course, my mom was the biggest influence. She had pretty firm ideas about how we should dress. LB: Do people expect anything different now from your style than they used to? SJP: I dress based on what I have. I’m not a huge shopper, but I love beautiful things. To be able to borrow them is ridiculously fortunate, and I enjoy every second of that. I have a pretty standard wardrobe, though I’ve got wonderful shoes. That’s more so the case now. I genuinely don’t know what people think of me or want from me. LB: Why did you start making shoes and fragrances? SJP: I love producing. I learned to do it on Sex and the City. I think it’s very exciting to be responsible for projects and people. And I think being an actor who’s a producer is especially interesting and potentially helpful to those on set because you know what is needed. You can read faces, you can read rooms, and you know what you want and what’s important. You have to be a people person, and I love people. I love taking care of them. LB: What have you learned about business and the fashion industry since becoming a designer? SJP: It’s really tough. And it’s competitive. I don’t mean the designers are competitive. I mean it’s a competitive industry. Without marketing dollars, you have to be consistent with your customers. You have to be deserving of their money. I’ve learned how to deal with people and get past obstacles, disappointments, and even biases; how to run a business and be taken seriously; and how to earn people’s respect by demonstrating how serious, hardworking, and accountable I am. LB: The life of your new character [Frances DuFresne on HBO’s Divorce] is far from a fantasy. Some people may feel like, “Sarah is not necessarily an avatar of my hopes and dreams as a woman anymore.” What drew you to this role? SJP: It’s taken me a long time to find anybody who I thought had as much potential as [Sex and the City’s] Carrie Bradshaw, who was as complicated, human, layered, and objectionable yet understandable, relatable yet foreign. People think she was a second skin for me, but she wasn’t. I didn’t know her at first. She was as different from me as anybody I’d

ever played or known. So I feel like Frances is equally as interesting and unknown to me. LB: What’s the feedback been like? SJP: So many people wrote to me after our New York City première—such a disparate group of people saying they were really shocked. They were not expecting this show from me, and that it would be so raw and real and funny and moving. They were also just incredibly complimentary about my work, which is really important to me. I’m surprised by how much I still care, how much I still worry about everything. People might think that because of my years of experience, I might be more cavalier about opinions and chatter. LB: I noticed you’re not on Twitter anymore. What turned you off? SJP: I don’t have the constitution for Twitter. It’s a boneyard, a feast of vitriol. I just don’t want to participate in it. But on Instagram people tend to be more civilized. And they can disagree and have objections, but I don’t find it as mean-spirited a community . LB: You haven’t gone through a divorce. How do you get in the mind-set of somebody who has? SJP: You needn’t have experienced something to play it. It’s just feelings of disappointment, failure, anger, rage, jealousy, regret, contrition, love. What is the well from which all those feelings spring? It’s divorce and infidelity. Even if this story isn’t yours or mine, it’s about a woman who’s going through something. If you don’t identify, you can still relate to the desire to right the wrong for your children, to find a full life, to make up for loss. To me, what she says in the pilot, “I want to save my life while I still care about it,” is what this show is about. LB: As parents, how do you and Matthew [Broderick] handle being celebrities? SJP: We talk about it with the kids to the degree that they want to, but we don’t do it unsolicited. I don’t know what James Wilkie [has seen of our work]. I think he’s seen a bunch, but never Sex and the City. It hasn’t occurred to him. The girls [7-year-old twins Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge] have seen Hocus Pocus. We have Girls Just Want to Have Fun, but I don’t think they’ve watched it yet. Like any parent, I just try to be present, pay attention, ask questions, and then allow them the freedom to monitor themselves. Hopefully, they’ll live by our example. It’s hard, because you want to give them freedom, but as a parent you have to be willing to not be liked by your child sometimes. LB: What else are you working on? SJP: I have a [fiction] imprint that I just started. So I’ll be reading manuscripts and having phone calls with my editors at Hogarth. I’m so excited about it, especially because books are such a huge part of my life. I have such admiration and respect for those great, powerful, original storytellers. LB: After all, where are we without a good story? SJP: Exactly. Q

While model Alana Zimmer often travels the world for work, her next trip to London has nothing to do with fashion. “I’m starting a psychology internship program there,” she explains. “My brother is physically and mentally challenged, so helping people is something I’ve always done. I’d like to focus on it in the future.” A student at New York University since 2015, the Ontario native, who was discovered in high school at an East Side Mario’s, Canada’s answer to the Olive Garden, has become one of the industry’s busiest and brainiest players, balancing gigs with brands like DVF and Madewell with her course load. She also finds time to volunteer at Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, an organization near her home in Manhattan’s East Village that helps feed the homeless. The neighborhood’s stellar thrifting scene is another draw: “I just got this amazing vintage Halston dress for only $100! The saleslady gave me a discount because someone had ripped out the label.” As for the looks at today’s shoot? “I loved that they were chic and minimal. It’s what I would wear every day in my ideal life.” Not that she’s lacking in the wardrobe department. Zimmer’s constant stream of inspired ensembles has made her a bona fide street-style star. “Even if I go to school, I’m not wearing sweatpants with holes in them. I like being put-together.” —ALISON SYRETT

He broke through in 2011 with his in-your-face interrogations on Billy on the Street, snagged a role on Parks and Recreation, and now stars on Difficult People.

We all know that actors are different from the characters they play on TV, but Billy Eichner makes it easy for viewers to get confused. In each of his two acclaimed shows, Billy on the Street (on truTV) and Difficult People (on Hulu), Eichner portrays a loud, gay, fast-talking, celebrity-obsessed New Yorker who goes by the name of Billy. Although the real-life Eichner fits the same description, he’s not nearly as unhinged as his Billy on the Street persona, who bombards people on Manhattan sidewalks with questions about the differences between Kris Jenner and Geppetto. Nor is Eichner as bitter and delusional as the underemployed actorcomedian he plays on Difficult People. One other difference: Eichner dresses a lot better than his schlubby, hoodieclad alter egos. A self-described former fat kid from Queens, Eichner now has two stylists on retainer—one on each coast—and is quickly learning the ins and outs of Hollywood fashion, including the hazards of wearing too much bronzer to the Emmys. In Difficult People, you and the show’s creator, Julie Klausner, play younger, less-successful versions of yourselves. Until a few years ago you had trouble finding work even though you’d developed a loyal fan base of comedy and theater insiders. How are things different now?

Well, I always worked very hard, but

now I’m finally getting paid for it. I remember my dad used to say to me, “If you’re such a genius, how come you can’t get three lines on Law & Order?” I told him, “Dad, show business doesn’t always make sense.” Billy on the Street is now in its fifth season, and your celebrity guests include stars like Jon Hamm and Lupita Nyong’o. A lot of people don’t realize how much effort goes into each episode despite its lo-fi look.

variables because I’m out there on the New York streets and I’m screaming at people and improvising the entire time. The celebrity guests we’ve had on the show come in thinking, “Oh, this will be a fun, silly thing,” and they’re in shock at how exhausting it is. I’m surprised at how much I still think it’s funny—the concept of interrupting someone going about their day. That still makes me laugh.

I think it’s the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do. There are so many

The 2015 segment with Michelle Obama and Big Bird—in which FLOTUS


pushed you around in a grocery cart after answering trivia questions about the 1980s sitcom The Facts of Life— was nominated for an Emmy. How did you get the First Lady on your show?

She approached us! I’m pretty shameless, but I would never in a million years have thought to pitch Michelle Obama. But the Obamas are incredibly media-savvy, and she wanted to promote her Eat Brighter! campaign and find the right creative partner to do a video. We shot it in a supermarket instead of on the street, but we wanted to keep things spontaneous and unscripted, so she didn’t know her questions in advance. She was lovely and got the absurdity of it. I was crazy nervous. There’s a stereotype that all great comedians are, on some level, deeply tormented people. Are you?

No. I was a relatively happy kid with great parents. I wasn’t damaged, unless you consider my obsession with show business to be unhealthy. Maybe there’s a case to be made there. I was a fat, gay Jewish kid who sat around and watched a lot of TV and absorbed it all like a sponge. You still draw upon that obsession in your work. Which shows are you addicted to?

The Comeback, with Lisa Kudrow, is my No. 1 show of all time. That got some bad reviews when it came out, and it taught me that sometimes the critics don’t understand. Oh, and The Wendy Williams Show is totally underrated. I love Wendy—always have, ever since she started out on radio. She doesn’t get enough respect.

Who else is good at daytime talk shows anymore? Nobody! But there’s Wendy, pulling in viewers every day. At what age did you start to care about your personal style?

I was always the nerdy performingarts kid, but in my senior year of high school, I began to be aware of how I looked. I cut my hair and put some gel in it, which was a big thing for me. Subconsciously, I was probably thinking, “Oh, you’re going to want to start having sex in college, so you should look better.” I’ve always been very pragmatic. Did you commit any fashion faux pas in the early days?

There were some talk-show interviews I did where I was dressing myself, and when I watched them later, I’d think, “Oh, no, no, no.” And the first time I went to the Emmys, the makeup artist was very heavy on the fake tanner— and I just let her do her thing because I figured she was the expert. Then I saw myself and thought, “That is not happening again.” For your public appearances you’ve been wearing a lot of spiffy suits. These days some people might even call you dapper.

Right now I’m working a lot, and sometimes an industry party is my one fun event for that month. So you want to look good and enjoy it. Also, it’s important to show people the difference between me and my character on Billy on the Street. He has this low-rent jeans-and-T-shirt look, and I’ve realized that dressing better in real life helped people differentiate. So

now I actually schedule the fittings in advance, because it takes hours. Hours! It’s shocking to me how long it takes, and I’m only trying on suits and ties. You’re single, and you’re getting kind of famous. Is it hazardous to use dating apps?

No, I’m on Grindr and all that stuff—I just do my thing and don’t care. The younger generation, they take it for granted. At some point we’re going to have a president who was Snapchatting nude pics when he was in his 20s and nobody’s going to mind. What about the perils of aging in Hollywood? When it comes to the pressures of staying young-looking and sexy, who has it harder, straight women or gay men?

Straight women, definitely. If you’re a woman in this business, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. If you do get the surgery and it doesn’t heal in an ideal way, everyone says, “Why did she get all that work?” And if you don’t get it, they say, “She looks so old.” Or, “She looks great. What has she had done?” It’s really a no-win situation. More and more men are starting to stress about it now.

Men might put that pressure on themselves, but I don’t think the industry is doing it to them. Maybe it’s an issue if you’re a certain type of actor. I imagine someone like Zac Efron feels pressure, but in comedy there isn’t quite the same standard, thank God. No matter what I looked like, Billy on the Street would have worked. So I don’t have that worry yet. Talk to me in 10 years. ■

are as brave and thoughtful as they are talented makes what we do even more special. GGB: At the end of the day we’re trying to give people a broad-strokes depiction of the music world too. LK: Sure, but most importantly, it’s

about making art. While music is the specific art form we’re exploring in the show, the same things are true of any creative endeavor. It comes down to passion. GGB: There’s a beautiful spot where Mexico, my home country, borders the United States. Artists are flocking there to paint murals, and it’s a similar form of expression. LK: [If I were doing a mural there]

I’d want to show a scene that depicts people loving one another and working together. GGB: I read somewhere that your goal for 2017 is to learn Spanish. LK: I have no clue where you heard

that, but maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea! I think we’re at a moment in this country where we’re all feeling awake, so I do want to be a citizen of the world to help make change. People spend so much time trying to brand themselves on social media rather than teaming up to make an actual difference. When Lola Kirke was in middle school in the early 2000s, she bypassed boyband idolatry and specifically set her sights on a Mexican actor having his breakout moment in films like Y Tu Mamá También and The Motorcycle Diaries: Gael García Bernal. “I had a schoolgirl crush on him in eighth grade,” the now26-year-old says with a laugh. Kirke’s preteen dream was realized when she landed the role of Hailey, an oboist in the fictional New York Symphony opposite García Bernal in Amazon Studios’ Golden Globe–winning drama Mozart in the Jungle. Just before the show’s third-season release on December 9, García Bernal called Kirke for a cross-continent catch-up. GAEL GARCÍA BERNAL: I want to talk about the relationship between our characters, orchestra maestro Rodrigo and Hailey. What the hell is going on with us? LOLA KIRKE: I think being in a truly romantic relationship would jeopardize

what their partnership is actually about, and that’s creativity and friendship. I don’t think either of them wants to sacrifice the artistic bond, and I’m happy I get to play that out onscreen. It’s generally not the narrative we see on TV. GGB: Do you think it’s hard to create similarly meaningful male-female friendships in real life? LK: Well, we’ve been friends for a long time now, and I think one of the reasons is

that you make me feel incredibly safe as an actor. Being surrounded by people who

GGB: Our characters care so much about self-expression, but do you think they put a lot of thought into getting dressed every day? LK: Hailey is kind of in tune with what

others around her are wearing. I like that because it’s fun to play a character whose sensibility is different from mine. Personally, I dress in a way that reflects the freedom I want to feel as a woman. Lately I’ve been wearing sheer everything and putting my legs and armpits on full display. I’m not saying that all women should do specifically that, but it’s important for us to express ourselves however we want. Some days I don’t care at all what I put on my body, but some days I like to honor the sacred art of self-decoration.

As for the dress code, comfort is key. “This year we’ll both probably wear a loose-fitting slip dress or a jumpsuit so that we can move around easily,” says Laura.

can’t fail to notice. Many people start January slowly, still a bit sleepy from the buzz of the holidays, but not you— you’ll be the leader of the brigade. The time for rest and rejuvenation will come near the end of the month and linger into early February, when the new moon in Aquarius on the 27th will make you yearn to relax and reflect on recent events. Creative ideas you have at month’s end can be very profitable, so take them seriously.

filled with optimism and energy, for Mars is still in your sign until the 28th. Everyone wants Mars in their sign because Mars gives courage, determination, and a sexy quality that others

TAURUS

APRIL 20–MAY 20 Your solar ninth house is brilliantly lit this month, encouraging you to think beyond your normal borders. All this is due to the new moon that appears on December 29 and that will still be influencing you in January. Your social life is about to blossom too. Two happy planets, Mars and Neptune, have moved into your 11th house, coaxing you to see old friends and make new acquaintances. Venus, your ruling planet, will be close to Mars, which suggests your chances of meeting someone special are strong. If you’re attached, take extra care of your one and only by planning a day you both can look forward to.

GEMINI

MAY 21–JUNE 20 As January begins, you will have a slow start, something you’ll appreciate after having such a hectic holiday. This year, once you get back to the office, you won’t have to hit the ground running; instead, you’ll have time to collect your thoughts and organize your strategy to step forward into the new year. Mercury, your ruling planet, will be retrograde until the 8th, so being slow and deliberate is the best approach. In January and

February, your career will start to move forward at the speed of light. In fact, you will see more professional progress in the first quarter of this year than you have in the past two years. This month, you have Mars brilliantly lighting your solar 10th house of honors, awards, and achievement. You’ve not had Mars’s help since January and February 2015, so this trend is as rare as it is special.

CANCER

JUNE 21–JULY 22 Now is the time to

get on the same page with your partner. Mercury will be retrograde until the 8th, a holdover from last month. Although Mercury retrograde can be frustrating in many parts of life, it’s perfect for going back to previous conversations, mending a fence, and finally agreeing on a course of action. You may feel drained around the time of the full moon in Cancer on the 12th. It will make you extraemotional over news about a close romantic or business relationship. Uranus will be cranky and deliberately difficult, causing chaos to erupt. Fortunately, Mars will be in the right position to provide you with help.

LEO

JULY 23–AUG. 22 Money is a big theme

for you in January. Planets in Capricorn are urging you to get budgets in shape, whether at work or at home. Mars and Neptune are orbiting together in your eighth house of shared finances, and that may mean you’ll need to get to the bottom of a financial mystery. Keep digging. But it’s not all about dollar signs this month. The new moon on the 27th will have you thinking about taking the next step in a relationship. If you’ve been dating a long time, the prospect of marriage will be within view. If you just started dating, you may simply promise to be exclusive to each other. If you’re married, it will be time to draw up new, exciting goals to tackle together. Single Leos, keep the faith and be patient: Next month, Valentine’s Day looks bright.

VIRGO

AUG. 23–SEPT. 22 As a Virgo, you are so diligent about getting projects done that it’s often hard for you to relax on a holiday. Now, as you enter January, you’re just beginning to get into the swing of the social scene and will want to make time to

enjoy fun and love. If you still pine for someone you used to love but lost in a breakup, Mercury retrograde, until the 8th, will be the right time to get in touch again. See how you feel— is the old spark still there? If you’re attached, you’ll be very focused on your partner, who will inspire you in ways you’ve not seen in a long time.

LIBRA

SEPT. 23–OCT. 22 Your home space

or another property you may own is about to get most of your attention, thanks to the new moon that appeared on December 29 in Capricorn. Mercury will still be retrograde, a holdover from last month, so if you want to buy any electronics, it’s best to wait until after Mercury goes direct, after the 8th. At work, there will be lots of activity, and you’ll need to be vigilant to make sure a project is moving the way you want it to, as it could go in the wrong direction at the full moon on the 12th. Your favorite part of the month will arrive near the end: The new moon in Aquarius of the 27th will be sunshine in a bottle.

you may decide to take a weekend drive or go out to the country. You won’t be able to go far or stay long, but a bit of fresh air and sunshine will do you a world of good. Be prepared for problems with the details of an ongoing or recently finished project around the full moon of the 12th. Everyone will find this full moon bringing challenges to different parts of life-yours seem to center on work, co-workers, subordinates, or project flow.

SAGITTARIUS

OCT. 23–NOV. 21 After the holidays,

NOV. 22–DEC. 21 You have four planets sparkling in your second house of earned income this month, making it the perfect time to study your accounts and find new ways to bring in more money. Financial considerations will come to a climax on the full moon in Cancer on the 12th; at least some of the money talk seems to revolve around your home. If you were thinking of throwing a party, do so at the end of the month, prior to the day Mars leaves Pisces, the 27th. In that last week, the two cosmic lovers, Venus and Mars, will be within touching distance, which is rare. Take full advantage of their closeness.

you may need a little vacation. With planets stacking up in Capricorn, an earth sign that blends well with yours,

CAPRICORN SAYS, “I STRIVE.” Ambitious, responsible, disciplined, and dependable, Capricorn values tradition and family life—and has a great sense of humor. Admittedly, this sign can be a bit of a workaholic, but the Goat relishes her job so dearly, she has convinced everyone that her work is simply play that she gets paid for. Your year ahead In this birthday year, you won’t have the normal restrictions for success, so reach for the stars. Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, entered Libra, the sign that governs your solar 10th house of honors and achievement, on September 9, 2016, and continues to pour its goodness into this house until October 10, 2017. Even better: Your outlook for money is very strong. Venus, the planet ruling your house of fame and honors, will turn retrograde from March 5 until April 15. At this time, you may assume your career is stalling, but setbacks will be temporary, so don’t become disheartened. This is the year you will climb to the top of your industry!

;Fÿ - 0MTC by PRIYANKA CHOPRA

This charm necklace is very personal to me because it belonged to my father, whom I lost to cancer almost four years ago. At the beginning of his health battle [in 2005], my mom bought him this solidgold chain from our family jeweler in India. It had just one charm at the time: an emerald, which according to Hindu astrology can positively affect your health. I’m not a blind believer in many things, but when someone is sick, you do whatever you can to gather prayers. So over the next eight years, my family collected healing charms from around the world to add. My dad hated wearing it—probably because of how heavy it became. I took a few charms off after he died, and now I wear it almost every day. As someone who’s always traveling, I feel like I’m carrying my family and my country with me wherever I go. The world may be my oyster, but there’s something about where you come from—and this necklace makes me feel rooted. It’s part of my identity.”

“We got this diamond and gold om symbol from a temple in northern India.”

“This is a photo of Hariakhan Baba, a spiritual guru my family follows.”

Chopra currently stars in ABC’s Quantico.

“This charm features the Muslim prayer for healing and protection called Ayatul Kursi.”

“Prophets can tell you which stone suits you for health purposes, and this emerald was recommended by a learned pundit in India.”

“The two rudraksha seeds [above and left] are my favorite. They’re rare, so they’re considered lucky. My mom got one of them from the head priest at Amarnath, which is one of the biggest Hindu prayer sites in northern India.”
