​ odel A M ​ lexandra Elizabeth Ljadov posed amid modernist architecture for our fashion editorial “The Still Life,” shot by Daubé. The photographer insists Ljadov “was the highlight” of the shoot at Miami’s Shore Club hotel. “She didn’t hesitate to pose for long periods in the sun.” Daubé, who grew up in a small fishing village in Brittany, counts shooting for CR Fashion Book as her big break into the fashion world and is working on a personal project this spring—a series of diverse female nudes titled Naked Women from 30 to 50.

CAROLINE TELL @CAROLINETELL The NYC-based writer and consultant caught up with both Olivier Rousteing, creative director of Balmain, and Toni Garrn, model and activist, for this issue. Tell, who cut her teeth at publications such as the Wall Street Journal and Condé Nast Traveler, has lent her expertise to lifestyle stories of late and says this spring she also has her eye on innovation in the luxury-wellness sector. “It’s a bit daunting, but I’m loving this movement. Maybe I’m just getting older!”

MARIA DUEÑAS JACOBS @MDUENASJACOBS A stylist who spent her childhood in Key Biscayne, just south of Miami Beach, Jacobs brought her natural love of color to our jewelry story “Stark Contrast,” choosing the season’s strongest colored stones and enameled pieces. ​“ Injecting color into your collection is always a great way to shake things up a bit,” she says. The former accessories director at Elle joined techmeets-fashion company Stitch Fix last year, which, coupled with raising her three children, has kept her very busy. “I adore my three kids, but I’m looking forward to escaping the New York cold for a girls’ trip somewhere warm this spring!”

MAXIME POIBLANC @MAXIMEPOIBLANC As the photographer behind the issue’s “Second Skin” story, Poiblanc angled for a specific aesthetic. “We wanted to capture the femininity of the accessories in a graphic and modern style,” he says. While the New York–based photographer and director has lent his mastery of light to still life shoots across the fashion and beauty industries, the landscapes he shot in Europe as a kid still call him. “I am working on a personal project exploring some of the most deserted areas in the world right now,” he tells us.

/EDITOR’S LETTER FOREVERMARK Tribute Collection Necklaces, $698–$2,798 [E].

I

recently came across a speech by political analyst Eleanor Smeal in which she surmised: “There is no manual of how to get to equality. You don’t know what the important case or the important moment will be. But if you take it all on and there’s enough people, that magic moment will come.” Spring 2018 feels like magic. At the start of this issue, we wanted to take a look at the idea of activism through entrepreneurship. It’s a concept that gained more import while we worked on this book last fall as the effort to realign women in centers of power—from boardrooms to upper management—became increasingly pressing. In the profiles of entrepreneurial women that we capture across these pages, we found, not surprisingly, that entrepreneurship crystallizes a potent byproduct of greater gender parity and opportunity for future generations of females. Reading their stories, we cull inspiration from these women who are puncturing the proverbial glass ceiling and, consciously or not, dismantling institutionalized inequality with every leadership role they take. Fashion—now more than ever—is central to the messaging around this effort. Long a litmus of the cultural tone of the moment, fashion has become a powerful tool in coalescing the groundswell of voices surrounding the #metoo and #timesup movements. The all-black dress code at this year’s Golden Globes became an impossible-to-ignore, tangible statement. And the sociocultural reflections on the spring/summer ’18

runways further expounded on the call for greater inclusiveness with a display of more ethnic, body and gender diversity than ever before. From Michael Kors’s stellar casting in a range of beautiful body types, including Ashley Graham and Kate Upton, to the merging of men’s and women’s shows from New York to Milan and Paris, the ideas of inclusion and intersectionality are—no pun intended—highly in fashion at the moment. Our stunning cover star, Toni Garrn, says it was her own experience in the fashion world that inspired the launch of her new foundation, which is currently helping girls in underprivileged areas in Africa to attain an education. In “Turning Point,” Garrn shares how she is parlaying her entrepreneurial efforts into activism by leveraging her social media platform to enable girls across the globe to secure sustainable access to education. Similarly, Motherlucker founder Yael Cohen Braun gives us a glimpse in “Real Life Meets Real Talk” into how she leverages the digital space to create movements that engender both awareness for early detection of cancer and a powerful community for mothers who find indomitable strength in numbers. Imparting a similar sense of empowerment, Australian model Shanina Shaik reveals in “Shaik It Off” how she is using her time in the spotlight to champion diversity within the industry and become an impactful anti-bullying advocate. For our part, we hope that the stories we tell through these pages, coupled with our look at the uplifting spring ’18 collections captured in our expansive fashion coverage, will incite some magic all your own this season. Enjoy the issue!

REA L LIFE ME ETS REA L TALK Yael Cohen Braun, founder of Fuck Cancer and Motherlucker, isn’t interested in changing what we talk about but how we talk about it. Here’s how she harnessed the power of the digital world to break conversation barriers.

t’s remarkable how a household conversation as widely familiar as “the sex talk” is still so universally awkward. The level of discomfort—the varying degrees of dead-air silence, broken eye contact, sweaty palms and seat shifting—is of course exclusive to each person’s individual experience. But Yael Cohen Braun, the 31-year-old founder of health nonprofit Fuck Cancer and parenting community Motherlucker, argues that it’s exactly these painful discussions that we need to have most. For Cohen Braun herself, that conversation was “the cancer talk” and, later, all topics parenthood. After her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer almost ten years ago, Cohen Braun founded Fuck Cancer, a cancer education organization that uses social media to engage millennials in a dialogue about prevention, detection and the support of those affected by the disease. To target a hyperengaged audience in an already oversaturated digital climate, she first tapped into what she calls the sticky spot. “There are a few minutes a day when everybody takes a second for themselves, and for most of us it’s digitally,” she explains. “We wanted to hit people in those places in a way that was fun to engage with and also meaningful.” Her sticky-spot solution was an ingenious video-post series of A-listers describing their personal sex-talk experiences. “Your parents gave you the sex talk because they loved you and they cared about you and they wanted to keep you safe—not because they particularly wanted to talk to you about sex,” Cohen Braun says. The idea was to prompt a role reversal, encouraging people to talk with their parents about cancer detection. The clips simultaneously engage (through interviews with celebrities such as Adrian Grenier, Sophia Bush and Catt Sadler), educate (informing viewers that “90% of cancers are curable if caught in Stage One”) and call to action (urging, “Make sure your parents are being safe about cancer”). What Cohen Braun avoids is what she describes as poverty porn, or media that exploits tragedy and plays on sympathies for charity. With organizations that use such an approach, “you’re going to take the action, you’re going to donate that $10, but you’re not staying a part of that community because it didn’t make you feel good,” she explains. Instead Fuck Cancer aims to engage visitors through positive association, thereby creating lasting connections. It has become a place to talk candidly about the disease. “We gave people permission to talk about it in a way that was authentic to them,” Cohen Braun says. “It was none of this head-tilting, candy-coated shit. “If you want to be optimistic, hell yeah, be optimistic. If you want to be angry, if you want to be frustrated, if you want to be sad, joyful—whatever the fuck is right for you, is right for you. We didn’t tell people how to feel. We just gave them a space to feel it.” Similarly, the entrepreneur created a digital platform for adults to discuss otherwise stigmatic parenthood topics. After enduring a devastating miscarriage and later giving birth to the first of her two sons with her husband, Scooter Braun, in 2015, Cohen Braun found

50

the chirpy, aspirational parenting sphere to be unrelatable. Left to her own devices, she began blogging about her reality as a new mom. And from that, Motherlucker, a community offering a raw and authentic parenting experience, was born in the same year. Knowing that her own encounters would only take her so far, Cohen Braun enlisted contributors of varied backgrounds—mothers of special-needs children, mothers of multiracial families, mothers of twins, single mothers, later-in-life mothers and beyond—to round out the conversation. Cohen Braun describes the camaraderie that ensued: “You come together, and you find this mom tribe when you’re the most vulnerable. I understand that most people don’t have that. They don’t know where to find it.” Motherlucker, with its tips, tricks, mishaps and expert opinions (headlines include “JOMO: The Joy of Missing Out,” “Five Ways to Talk to a Mom Friend You Think Has Postpartum Depression” and “Potty in the USA”), provides a haven for parents to become informed, heard and part of a group. “Motherlucker gives people information and that permission almost to know that no matter what you’re doing, it’s right for your family,” explains Cohen Braun, “because every kid, every family, every situation is totally different. There’s no one right answer.” With the limitless bounds of the digital world, Cohen Braun envisions an even more collaborative future. “If we can work with another organization and together we could do more good, I don’t see why we wouldn’t.” Learn more about Fuck Cancer at letsfcancer.com and about Motherlucker at motherlucker.com.

striking a chord CHARLOTTE GROENEVELD, THE WOMAN BEHIND THE BLOG THE FASHION GUITAR, SHARES HER SECRET TO IMPECCABLE STYLE, HER FAVORITE SPRING COLLECTIONS AND HER SINGLE MOST COVETED ITEM OF THE SEASON.

WRITTEN BY ANNIE DAVIDSON ST YLED BY CHARLOTTE GROENEVELD PHOTOGRAPHED BY KELLY STUART

Somewhere between raising two children and moving from her native Netherlands to England and then the US, style blogger Charlotte Groeneveld launched her site, The Fashion Guitar. Fast-forward seven years—through a finance gig and a marketing position at ASOS—and the 33-year-old, now based in New York, has established a full-fledged, self-branded fashion empire. With an Instagram following of 328K fans and counting, designer collaborations with labels like Chloé, Jimmy Choo and Giorgio Armani Beauty, and front-row access to each season’s premier shows, the globe-trotting influencer has become an industry-wide voice of authority and an advocate for styling clothes to fit your body, not the other way around. While Groeneveld has never been one to shy away from a trend (see: her oversized, pink Balenciaga down scarf moment from this January), she’s adamant about proper styling. Her rule is simple: know yourself. “For everyone out there, it’s very important to know your body, to know what works and what doesn’t, because not everything works on everyone, which is totally fine obviously,” she says. “There’s nothing more sad

54

than to see people squeeze into a trend. You really have to get to know yourself and your body. Then you’re more able to style yourself and get inspiration from around you.” Groeneveld focuses on color when styling herself. “I found out over the years the colors that work for me, and when I do wear them, it makes my day so much nicer.” And she’s drawn to designers and collections that use color in surprising ways. This season she’s particularly inspired by Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Valentino, Phoebe Philo’s Céline and Demna Gvasalia’s Balenciaga for their innovative combinations of colors and fabrics. As for her must-have piece this season, Groeneveld favors functional fashion. “Chanel’s see-through rain hat would definitely be something I am going to use at some point,” she says. “It’s a fun piece.” Groeneveld forecasts fisherman hats—also shown by Michael Kors, Loewe and Gucci—as big items for the warmer months. Next up Groeneveld plans on translating her digital platform into a hardcover book. “I always get a lot of requests for books,” she says. “It would be a fun accomplishment.”

VERSACE

TURNS

In celebration of Versace’s 40th anniversary this March, Donatella Versace is reissuing a number of the key prints and silhouettes originally debuted by her late brother Gianni throughout the early nineties. The prints, including those from the celebrated Animalia, Warhol and Icons collections, appear reinterpreted across a range of blouses, square-shouldered jackets, catsuits, mini sheaths and skirts, giving the brand’s multitude of fans a chance to live the magic all over again.

PAOLO’S

DIOR

Equal parts fashion monograph and photographic portfolio, Dior Images: Paolo Roversi explores the remarkable symbiotic collaboration between leading international fashion photographer Paolo Roversi and the French couture house, as illustrated by a series of iconic photographs taken by the Italian-born lensman for various magazines over the last 27 years. Featuring intimate archival images of Naomi Campbell, Natalia Vodianova and Laetitia Casta, the tome also includes pictures from an exclusive photo shoot supervised by legendary stylist Grace Coddington and featuring designs by Christian Dior himself, making this a must-read for aficionados of photography and fashion alike.

STALVEY

Stalvey, the exotic luxury accessories line created by neuroscientist turned designer Jason Stalvey, is giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “It bag.” The former Harvard Medical School student launched his eponymous line in 2014 after a failed attempt to find the perfect alligatorskin duffel bag. Since then, his handbags have become one of fashion’s most coveted (and most exclusive) investment buys, undoubtedly owing to the growing number of top models spotted carrying his pint-sized designs (Kaia Gerber and the Hadid sisters included). Available in limited quantities, each design is painstakingly handcrafted in the US from genuine alligator, lizard, ostrich or python skin, with styles ranging from miniature beauty cases and top-handle satchels to edgier, street-style-informed backpacks and waist bags. “One thing we try to do differently is to create a sense of ease with our products,” says Stalvey. “What a lot of customers don’t understand is that exotic skins are some of the most durable leathers. Rather than treat our products preciously, we really want people to enjoy using them. It’s about taking classic shapes and everyday essentials and reworking them into something beautiful and luxurious.”

HEAVENLY BODIES

The Costume Institute at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art will draw connections between religious art and contemporary couture for its annual spring exhibition, opening on May 10. Titled Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, the show will feature some 50 ecclesiastical masterworks from the Sistine Chapel sacristy— many of which have never been seen outside the Vatican, including papal vestments and accessories dating back to the Beth Kojima (left) and Anne-Cecilie Engell Speyer, cofounders of NSL.

“What we’re doing is having live TED Talks,” says Never Stop Learning cofounder Beth Kojima, a former hedge-fund partner and investment banker. Though NSL isn’t affiliated with the TED organization or its well-known lecture series, Kojima has found this comparison an easy way to describe the continuing education program she started with Anne-Cecilie Engell Speyer, a former fashion-industry marketing director. Born from a book club with friends and visiting authors, NSL is a service that combines socializing and learning in curated salons held anywhere from private residences to corporate offices.

workforce, one develops a little bit of tunnel vision, Engell Speyer explains. “Our idea is: let’s just keep learning,” she says. “Why did it have to stop at 22 or 26 or whenever it stopped?” Each customized salon starts with a 20-minute talk followed by 35 minutes of questions and answers. Part of NSL’s service is the extensive vetting of industry professionals—such as Seed Global Health’s Vanessa Kerry, the Guggenheim’s Troy Conrad Therrien and FEED’s Lauren Bush Lauren—who can speak dynamically in a range of settings. “If you don’t have amazing people on your roster, then you don’t have a business, because the business is the talent,” says Kojima. NSL’s other key component is to make ideas accessible to as many people as possible; this year NSL will open offices in LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Boston and DC.

VALANI

MEET VALANI CREATIVE DIRECTOR HEENA SHAH, THE INDUSTRIAL ENGINEER TURNED JEWELRY DESIGNER WHO TRADED HER CAREER AT GOOGLE FOR 18-KARAT GOLD AND GEMSTONES.

Heena Shah, Valani creative director.

“I spend a good deal of time thinking about how modern women wear jewelry and how I can create jewelry pieces that would be relevant to their lifestyle and that they’d be comfortable wearing everyday,” says Heena Shah, the creative director of Valani fine jewelry. A former Google engineer with a penchant for sculpting in her spare time, Shah was drawn into the jewelry trade by her husband, Gaurav, a third-generation gem dealer. After traveling to gemstone mines around the world for years with her husband, Shah began to create settings for the stones, and the Valani jewelry line was born. Created with materials ethically sourced from countries such as Brazil, Mozambique and Japan, Shah’s handmade designs marry rare rubies, emeralds, sapphires and pearls with 18-karat gold. The result is a collection of minimal, sculptural accents—such as the brand’s signature Hexa yellow-gold and diamond stacking ring ($1,500)—that remain timeless yet refreshingly modern. A testament to Shah’s sculpting background and training at New York’s Gemological Institute of America, Valani’s rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces exhibit bold lines and sharp angles that play with elements such as light and reflection. Already awarded a total of six American Gem Trade Association Spectrum Awards, Shah has still bigger plans for Valani as a vehicle to raise sustainability awareness. “A lot of our audience has responded that they love the color and the luster and the brightness of our stones,” she says. “I’d love to educate more of our audience about gemstones and the communities and the families that we source —Annie Davidson our stones from.” [ E ] S H O P T H E VA L A N I C O L L E C T I O N AT E D I T O R I A L I S T.

THE LATEST NEWS YOU NEED TO KNOW IN BEAUTY & FITNESS


As the rate of Botox and filler use continues to rise across the country, a new injectable is emerging that promises to deliver younger-looking, more radiant skin by utilizing the healing powers of one’s own blood. But is the procedure worth the hype? New York’s top skin-care experts weigh in. WRITTEN BY ALYSSA MONTEMURRO 74

IT’S IN THE BLOOD


/BEAUTY

I

t’s no secret that the clean-beauty movement is having a moment. What was once considered a niche trend among health-conscious shoppers has since grown into a reported $1.3 billion business for skin-care brands in the last couple of years, with an estimated 40 to 50 percent of US women now actively seeking products formulated with natural or organic ingredients, according to a 2017 report by the NPD Group. But while beauty counters have been quick to stock their shelves with an array of products claiming to be clean and organic, health-minded individuals seeking a more natural, yet still highly effective, alternative to synthetic injectables—like Botox and Restylane—have been left with little to no options. That is, perhaps, until now. Though originally used to treat a variety of orthopedic concerns, including tendinosis and connective tissue injuries, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy is emerging as the new cosmetic treatment of choice among patients opposed to injecting their bodies with synthetic ingredients. The reason? Unlike traditional hyaluronic acid fillers, PRP is sourced from the patient’s own blood, making it a far more natural way to rejuvenate the skin. “It’s as natural as you can get,” says Melissa Doft, MD. “I have many patients who are afraid of injecting a foreign material into their skin, so they really appreciate that PRP is derived from their own blood. It’s becoming more and more popular as patients continue to learn about it.” Used in a similar fashion as traditional synthetic fillers, PRP is procured by first drawing several teaspoons of blood from a patient’s arm and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma component. Once injected, these platelets, which contain an extremely high concentration of growth factors, trigger a healing response in the body, resulting in the increased production of healthy collagen and the creation of new blood vessels, a process known as angiogenesis. “The creation of healthy blood vessels is actually very helpful with these sorts of treatments because proper blood supply helps with the oxygenation of the skin, which can lead to a healthier complexion,” says Robert Anolik, MD. “While it’s important to know that we’re still in the early days of understanding how PRP might actually improve the skin, it’s showing real signs of potential. In recent studies, these injections have shown evidence of activating fibroblasts—collagen-producing cells—and promoting the formation of new collagen, which has been proven to help with things like fine lines, deep wrinkles, loss of volume and the overall tone and texture of the skin.” To achieve the best results, most doctors suggest receiving at least three treatments, spaced three to six weeks apart, with touch-ups once a year to help maintain the results. And because the injected substance is sourced

from the patient’s own body, there is little risk of infection or allergic reaction, with most patients experiencing only a minimal amount of redness and bruising in the days immediately following the procedure. “The natural factor plays a big role with my patients,” says David Colbert, MD, the go-to dermatologist for celebrities like Emma Stone and Sienna Miller. “They like that they’re using their own growth factors and their own ‘serum’ in place of a foreign substance to help with things like building new collagen, reversing the signs of sun damage and tightening and toning the skin.” “Most [of my patients] comment that their skin has a glow that it didn’t have before [PRP],” adds Doft. “They feel refreshed.” Though PRP is considered to be effective enough on its own, many doctors agree that it may also help optimize other more traditional in-office procedures, like microneedling (referred to also as “the vampire facial”) and skin-resurfacing treatments. “One of the most interesting ways that we’re using PRP in my office right now is by treating patients with an injection and then applying the remaining PRP topically to the skin immediately following a resurfacing treatment like the Clear + Brilliant laser or the Fraxel Dual,” says Anolik. “By doing so, we’re essentially enhancing permeation on the skin’s surface, making it easier for the PRP to penetrate for the most effective results.” And it doesn’t stop there. Colbert also notes its use on the hands, arms, neck and décolletage, where he says it can provide a subtle yet noticeable increase in tone and smoothness. Still, for all of PRP’s purported benefits, many doctors are quick to note that it’s still a far cry from being the holy grail treatment that it’s sometimes made out to be. While helpful in the treatment of things like small lines and overall tone, PRP alone is still largely ineffective when it comes to treating more serious skin concerns. “It’s not going to give you the same volumizing effect as a synthetic filler,” warns Doft. But “it does allow a patient to benefit from an antiaging therapy without the use of foreign materials.” Anolik also remains wary of equating PRP with more traditional hyaluronic acid fillers, taking a tentative approach while continuing to study its use in the cosmetic field. “[PRP] is still really new, and we’re slowly just now starting to understand its potential,” he says. “I don’t think it should be assumed that it’s going to create a remarkable change for everybody, as we’re still just learning how to optimize it. That said, it’s a fascinating thing, and I do think we’ll be talking about more specific ways to use it in the years to come. For now, though, we’ll just have to wait and see.”

SCALP

DETOX

From cult-favorite conditioners to next-gen oils, an endless amount of products out there promise to deliver shiny, camera-worthy tresses. But what if, in the quest for red-carpet-ready hair, we’ve been neglecting something that can truly make a difference? “The scalp is crucial in the quest for shiny, healthy hair because it is the place where the hair follicle is actually nourished,” explains Garren, the legendary hairstylist and cofounder of R+Co hair care. “The worst thing you can do to the scalp is allow your pores to become clogged with oils and dead skin cells, as this will suffocate the hair follicle, leading to hair loss and breakage.” Rather than saturating your strands in yet another typical conditioner then, Garren suggests investing in a scalp-focused shampoo and conditioner like R+Co’s new Television Perfect Hair Shampoo and Conditioner, which helps detoxify the hair follicles, removing dirt and impurities while also nourishing the scalp for the optimal oil balance. Already in love with your daily shampoo and conditioner? Oribe’s new Serene Scalp Soothing Leave-On Treatment uses peppermint oil and chamomile to soothe and calm the scalp, creating a healthy moisture balance, while the new Hair Rituel by Sisley Revitalizing Fortifying Serum can be applied directly to the scalp to encourage microcirculation for stronger, more radiant-looking hair.

POLLUTANTS We’ve all heard about the harmful effects that air pollution can have on our health and the environment, but what about the effects it has on our skin? “Every day, our skin is bombarded with environmental poisons including industrial pollution, tobacco smoke, particulate matter from auto tailpipes, and heavy metals,” says German chemist turned beauty guru Dr. Barbara Sturm. “These pollutants have tremendous effect not only on our skin, in terms of premature aging and inflammatory skin conditions, but when our skin’s barrier function is impaired, the toxins also use the skin as an inlet into our bodies and other organs, causing a wide range of disease.” Thankfully, beauty companies have been quick to react, unveiling an entirely new category of luxury products designed specifically to combat these harmful particles. Among the most anticipated launches is Dr. Sturm’s new Anti-Pollution Drops—an antioxidant-rich serum that can be mixed in with your daily skin-care products to help block out pollutants and strengthen the skin’s natural defenses against environmental stressors. Chantecaille’s Anti-Pollution Mattifying Cream, meanwhile, is formulated with white-horehound-stem-cell and lentil extracts to help shrink pores and create a shield against damage-causing free radicals, while Royal Fern’s Phytoactive Hydra-Firm Intense Mask utilizes a potent mix of botanical actives to help neutralize free radicals and reduce the overall signs of aging.

If the thought of undergoing a traditional facelift is enough to send shivers down your spine, consider Silhouette InstaLift. Recently approved by the FDA, this minimally invasive procedure may just be the world’s answer to younger, tighter-looking skin sans all of the cutting, stitching and bruising common of traditional nip/tucks. “This really is the alternative we’ve been waiting for in terms of being able to specifically target a patient’s need for a lift,” says Dennis Gross, the Manhattan-based dermatologist behind the flawless skin of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Selena Gomez and Olivia Palermo. “It’s for someone who does not want plastic surgery but whose skin would really benefit by lifting it in the same direction as a traditional facelift.” Promising to deliver natural-looking results with little to no downtime, InstaLift is a relatively straightforward procedure that involves weaving specially formulated dissolvable sutures equipped with bidirectional cones through the facial tissue to instantly lift and reposition the planes of the face. These tiny threads, which are made from a synthetic material called polylactic acid, actually create a controlled injury under the skin, essentially tricking the body into creating scar tissue around them and, as a result, stimulating the production of new collagen over the course of several months. Consequently, skin will appear not only more lifted but also significantly more voluminous, with results lasting for about two years, depending on the patient. While the treatment is considered minimally invasive, Gross does warn that patients may still experience some slight bruising or redness at the sites where the threads are inserted. Still, that’s a far cry from the extensive recovery time typically required of most surgical facelifts. “My patients love the fact that they leave [my office] looking very natural,” says Gross. “With Silhouette InstaLift, it’s still your own skin, your own face, so you can’t help but look like yourself. That’s what natural means, after all—you look like yourself but just with the clock turned back a bit.” Silhouette InstaLift is now available by appointment at the Dr. Dennis Gross Dermatology office in Manhattan, with prices starting at $3,500.

Red lips are a perennial favorite, but this season makeup artists at Chanel, Max Mara and Dolce & Gabbana reimagined the go-to look by opting for sweet, cherry-colored hues that were blurred at the edges for a cool, softfocus finish. For extra dimension, take a cue from Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini and slick a lightweight gloss across the center of the lips for a juicy Popsicle-like stain.

CUTS

The obsession with abbreviated lengths hit fever pitch this season at Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani and Moschino, where hairstylists experimented with pixie-cut wigs and faux crops created by way of some clever clipping and pinning. Note too this season’s crop of breakout models, including Gisele Fox, Loane Normand and Sarah Fraser, all of whom made waves with their androgynous dos.

This spring, nothing beats the fresh, dewy complexions spotted backstage at Alexander Wang, Michael Kors and Balmain. Achieve the same supernatural finish by mixing a drop of illuminating serum into your foundation before blending in a creamy concealer. Finish with a few swipes of sheer, illuminating powder, and voilà—your glow is ready!

The perfect match for this season’s flawless complexions? A soft, wellmoisturized nude lip. Channel the looks at Dior, Fenty and Balmain by reaching for a glossy, lightweight formula, like NARS Cosmetics’ new Lip Cover in Under Arrest.

SLICK LIDS

While glowy skin continues to dominate the runways, this season makeup artists at Prabal Gurung, Preen and Tom Ford took the look one step further by applying a swipe of clear eye gloss to their models’ eyelids for a sleek highlighting effect.

” a model is a human being, but we’re living in a time when women are stepping up to voice themselves. I have changed over the last year. I’m much quicker to say, ‘Thank you, but I’m good,’ when someone tries to dress me, or, ‘No, thank you,’ to a photographer who wants to come to my trailer.” Garrn attributes her strength to having a strong mother as well as being surrounded by a large family who didn’t care much about fashion. Garrn was born in Hamburg but also lived in Athens and London, as her father traveled for his job with Exxon. The rest of her family were mostly academics. Garrn says she didn’t know what Vogue was until she was shooting one of its covers. Even after being discovered at a FIFA World Cup tournament at age 14, she made sure to finish all of her classes and graduate high school with honors. Her breakthrough came in 2008 with a Calvin Klein campaign, after which the other brands came calling. She booked Prada, Chloé, Armani and Hugo Boss all in one season. She was opening shows. She was closing shows. She didn’t even realize how important she was. “I was successful before I noticed it,” Garrn says. “I think I was blessed in that I never knew how great it all was until afterwards. I had never held a Vogue in my hand or realized who Steven Meisel was. But I knew I was blessed once I saw thousands of models waiting for a casting and I walked right through because I was booked already. There were so many thousands of girls. I didn’t even want it that badly. I just fell into it.” Garrn says her favorite moments as a model were those that revolved around the fashion weeks in New York, Milan and Paris, when she felt like she was part of a summer camp of sorts with fellow up-and-comers like Taryn Davidson and Ali Stephens. They would run around together to castings, shows and parties and take a rare lunch break. “It was the same 30 girls doing every show, and it felt like we were a part of something together,” Garrn says. “I don’t do shows anymore because nowadays the well-known girls are supposed to do one show or sit front row. But I loved the runway. I hope the girls doing it now are having as much fun as we did.” As Garrn looks toward the next phase of her life, she’s certainly not retiring her supermodel persona just yet, but she plans to work more with her foundation and spend more time in Los Angeles focusing on a newfound passion—acting. She’s already landed parts in the Amazon original series You Are Wanted, the television movie Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer and the upcoming feature film Berlin, I Love You. In true LA style, she also wants to work a bit on herself. “I’m not the most centered and relaxed person,” Garrn says. “So I’m learning how to sit still and meditate and incorporate more time alone. That should be a rule for models. Everything outside us is always changing. We have no routine to hold onto. If we can’t focus on the outside, we should be focusing on the inside.”

L

ast October, Olivier Rousteing, the 32-year-old creative director of Balmain, presented an homage to France, a paean to Paris and his roots, through a glamorous French collection featuring tweed, macramé and sharp, structured silhouettes in a mélange of black and white. But Rousteing isn’t finished telling his story. This time, however, instead of telling it through clothing, he’s turning to film. Rousteing is embarking on a new kind of journey: he’s making a documentary about his childhood, examining how his early experiences affected his artistic development and ultimately his career. Rousteing, who is mixed race, spent the first five months of his life in a Bordeaux orphanage before he was adopted by a white couple—his parents, Bruno-Jean and Lydia. In part the film will explore the ways that growing up black in a white family has influenced his identity and self-expression. “This is something really exciting that’s not about me as a designer, but about me as a human being who went through so much,” Rousteing says. “I feel like it will be a big moment for me, showing the behind-the-scenes of my life and how I had to face so many obstacles. I’m going to be honest and go back to my childhood. It’s a moment of my life that will be really strong. I get goose bumps when I think about it.” The documentary, set for a 2019 release, will also chart Rousteing’s astonishingly rapid ascent to Balmain’s top creative post by age 25. Since then he’s been responsible for designing nine men’s, women’s and kids’ collections per year, Balmain showroom in Paris. as well as four accessories lines, for the brand’s global network of over 350 retailers. This is no easy feat “I WANT TO BREAK BOUNDARIES. I WANT TO KEEP given the sad state of retail and high B A L M A I N ’ S G L A M O U R , R I C H N E S S A N D LU X U R Y B U T S TAY luxury’s continued competition from fast fashion. But Rousteing’s C O N N E C T E D T O Y O U T H A N D T H E N E X T G E N E R AT I O N .” reach goes well beyond garments. In his seven-year tenure, he has modernized the vision of a design Rousteing says. “The fashion world has changed, and we’re house most famous for its postwar Jolie Madame looks and its living in a moment of a revolution, where really strong brands, tailored tweed styles of the 1960s and recast it as a relevant— big or small, must be true and real. I think people see on my some would say defining—force in global fashion. Instagram or with my collections that I am myself, that I am What sets Rousteing apart is how he’s managed to do it.

Lopez and Kate Bosworth. With other designers, this sort of hobnobbing with Hollywood, music and fashion elite can seem forced, like a marketing ploy to boost sales. With Rousteing, it’s obviously part of his life. “I’m not into the idea of celebrity for celebrity’s sake,” Rousteing says, “[but] I admire people who have something to say. I am part of this strong and empowering generation, so that world is important to me, and I love learning from so many people who then become part of my world. They are my muses. They are my inspiration.” Rousteing says he finds inspiration everywhere. He might suddenly get an idea while traveling to the mountains in Switzerland, which he does in his down time, or by listening to music. It has come from a Fabergé egg he spotted on a trip to New York. It can even come, as one might expect, from an Instagram comment. He got the idea for his return-to-France spring 2018 collection after he posted a video of himself and a fan commented on how well he spoke French—his native language. “During these last few years, I’ve been so international that I think people forget where I come from,” says Rousteing, who was raised in Bordeaux before moving to Paris for design school. “People get that I’m global, but they forget that I am Parisian, so I brought back the French touch in my show. It’s where I come from. It’s craftsmanship but a sense of cool casual.” For an audience that included editors, retailers, influencers and members of his Balmain Army, Rousteing presented the collection at the Palais Garnier, Paris’s grand opera house. The location was especially gratifying for Rousteing, so much 138

so that he presented a letter he wrote to his 10-year-old self, the boy he was around the time he attended the opera with his parents at that very theater. Mounting a show in the same venue decades later marked an emotional and professional turning point. “The show was a symbol of my maturity, and I wanted to show myself talking to the kid I was,” Rousteing says. “I’m not a kid anymore. I’m an adult. It was important that the fashion world see me that way. You may love or hate my show, but the reality is that in my seven-year career at Balmain, I was proud to be at the opera that day.” Even as Rousteing looks back, he continues to focus on Balmain’s future. This past fall, he relaunched Balmain accessories, a strong collection of bags, footwear and other goods featuring sharp architecture and bold lines. He put his own spin on Pierre Balmain’s iconic box-style handbag with the new BBox bag. It features the house’s signature coin emblem along with modern flourishes like metal studs or pop-art newspaper graphics. “It’s mixing French classic with an urban element, which is something that’s very strong for me,” Rousteing says. His initial goal was to make the brand a household name, but now it’s all about going global. Under Rousteing’s stewardship, and much like the designer himself, he would like to see the house retain its French heritage and taste while becoming a global power. “I want to break boundaries,” Rousteing says. “I want to keep Balmain’s glamour, richness and luxury but stay connected to youth and the next generation.” Though he can’t say exactly where that may lead, he seems undaunted. “I don’t know what Balmain will be in 50 years, but I’m proud of it today.”

DA I LY DIAMONDS Known for her minute pavé huggies as well as weighty diamond chokers, Anita Ko makes a strong case for investing in luxurious pieces that you won’t want to take off—whether you’re headed to Pilates or a premiere.

WRITTEN BY LAUREN JOSEPH ST YLED BY SARAH SCHUSSHEIM PHOTOGRAPHED BY JUSTIN COIT

Los Angeles–based Anita Ko, now jeweler to many of Hollywood’s most inspiring talents, found her career path in a roundabout way. Though fascinated by jewelry since childhood (she cites a white-gold and blue-topaz necklace as her first creation, which she crafted at the tender age of thirteen), Ko never thought design of any kind would cut it as a career. That is, until a particularly label-savvy burglar nabbed all of her designer handbags. “I decided instead of buying a new bag, I would make one for myself out of a vintage fabric,” says Ko, who was in her early twenties at the time. The bag got so much attention that she was able to parlay her design skills into a business. But after three years as a handbag designer, Ko determined she was ready to finally pursue her childhood dream and founded her namesake line of simple, youthful, diamond-accented pieces. The first collection, which debuted in 2006, boasted delicate gems like a micropavé circle necklace rendered in 18-karat gold and ethically sourced diamonds. It was an instant hit (Cameron Diaz wore it to a film premiere that first year) and a welcome respite from the flashier, and at times dated, repertoire of high-end jewelry that consumed the Hollywooddressing market. “I’ve always liked to create pieces that are functional and wearable,” explains Ko. Not that she doesn’t create red-carpet-worthy statement baubles; her collection includes more than one pair of diamond chandelier earrings. The difference is Ko’s stylish clients are likely to layer those earrings with one of her ear cuffs—or three. “I was lucky enough to come at a time when red carpet meant huge pieces, and my aesthetic felt relatable and different,” says Ko. “Being raised in Los Angeles, I’ve always been focused on jewelry that could be statementworthy, yes, but could be layered for a day-to-night look as well,” she continues. “In our jeans-

and-T-shirt culture, I think jewelry is a great way for a woman to express herself in a luxe way on the day-to-day.” Retailers like Maxfield and Neiman Marcus quickly took notice, as did a bevy of Hollywood starlets—and, just as importantly, their stylists. “I really owe the stylist Rachel Zoe for being an early client and supporter of mine,” says Ko. “She would wear my pieces while working, which led some of her clients to become early supporters of mine as well.” “There is a simplicity to her pieces but with such a unique point of view,” says Zoe when asked what drew her to the collection. Indeed, in addition to the more classic diamond baubles, Ko’s work has included punk-leaning gilded safety pins and panther motifs that hark back to eighties glamour. It’s no surprise, then, that her celebrity clients include the likes of Amber Valletta, the subject of Ko’s campaigns; Kate Upton, for whom Ko recently designed a bespoke engagement ring; and Olivia Munn, who exclaimed in a 2017 interview with Vanity Fair that she almost never takes off her Anita Ko diamond choker. Ko, while grateful for her celebrity following, is focused on making pieces for all working women who want to feel pulled together but lack the time to stop at home for outfit changes during their busy days. “So many women in our generation are just always 160

on the go,” says Ko. “We don’t dress like women used to. We don’t change our jewelry and handbags before dinner. I want to make pieces that my clients don’t have to take off, that transition from morning to night seamlessly.” Ko herself is always on the go. An avid traveler, she fields interview questions by phone from Miami, where she is attending Art Basel. The designer cites early-morning design sessions and ten minutes with a meditation app each day as her rituals for staying focused even when she is on the move. When it comes to carving out additional time away from the business side of her line to design, Ko says she tries to let it happen wherever it can. “I don’t conscript myself into creating a full collection at one time. I sometimes will just make one piece, add it to the collection and allow the collection to evolve slowly.” So what’s next for the brand? Possibly an expansion beyond jewelry for this onetime handbag designer. “I have thought about expanding into other categories, but it would have to happen very organically… so we will see,” she says. “I also think about creating a little unisex collection to celebrate both the men and women who wear my pieces.” Considering Johnny Depp has frequently been spotted around town in custom pieces designed by Ko, we have no doubt that Hollywood’s leading men will lean in.

Not ready to adopt a head-to-toe embellished look just yet? Start small with a single downy accessory like Saint Laurent’s feathered sandals or with Calvin Klein’s pom-pom-inspired tote bag for an of-the-moment, tactile statement.


COMPARTMENTALIZED BAGS Organizing your daily essentials has never been easier, thanks to this season’s range of neatly sectionalized handbag shapes, from Fendi’s layered micromini pouches to Salvatore Ferragamo’s tiered shoulder stack. Embrace the trend by mixing and matching, doubling up on styles to create a multidimensional finish that’s every bit as functional as it is chic.

GIVENCHY

Designers borrowed from the boudoir this season with slinky, lingerieinspired pieces such as diaphanous, light-as-air dresses and sheer, lacy tops that left little to the imagination. Consider it a clarion call to celebrate female sensuality in all of its many forms. 194
