To ssay I’m thrilled to welcome you to the December issue is an understatement. My team m and I were honored to work with former Vice President Joe Biden on a story tied to the t release of his memoir Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose, c ronicling the period up to his beloved son Beau’s death. Biden resonates, of course, chr because of his great heart, which, combined with his experience and intellect, gives be h m a presence and perspective so needed on the current political stage. As for a 2020 him run, Biden is still making up his mind, as he tells me in the piece, which starts on page ru 190. But what he is clear about is the power of empathy and standing up for what 19 you believe in. (The story was photographed beautifully by Mario Sorrenti and styled by George Cortina.) Our cover star, Julia Roberts, has, like Biden, also stayed true to herself her entire career, one defined by her incredible charisma and ease in her own skin. I couldn’t be happier that fashion’s current Western moment mixed seamlessly with her laid-back personal style. Speaking of style, few models are chicer than the incredible Malgosia Bela, who styled herself for a fashion shoot on the streets of, and at her longtime home in, Paris. We’ll have what she’s wearing. But let’s face it: Sometimes you don’t want to wear anything but tinsel, as Neil Patrick Harris demonstrates in “A Sexy Christmas.” Both NPH and these pictures—shot by Martin Schoeller—are hysterical. After all, what’s the silly season (as we call it in Australia) without the...silly? I hope you love this issue as much as I do. Happy holidays!

THE MOORE THE MERRIER

Through her acting I’ve always felt in my bones that Julianne Moore is a badass, but I didn’t know how much until I saw your October issue with her on the cover. I literally had to do a double take because at first I thought she was Debbie Harry of Blondie. But, no, it was Julianne rockin’ the front cover like the total badass she is. All respect. —MARISA TOWLER, Eatontown, N.J.

Hold my calls. The Beauty Issue is here. #InStyleMagazine —@KATIE .VANLUCHENE

CHARACTER GOALS

@InStyle @_juliannemoore these pictures show how 1 (any) woman can have so many different looks [and] how if not “forced” [into] a definition, she can portray anyone. —@DAMARRA_S_, via Twitter

October cover star Julianne Moore in a look inspired by Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour Rochas trenchcoat and top. Van Cleef & Arpels earrings. Mikimoto ring (index finger).

Correction: In our November Doing Good feature on p. 66, we incorrectly stated that Hilarity for Charity has given more than $200,000 in grants for free 24-hour in-home care in the past two years. In fact, the organization has donated more than 200,000 hours of free in-home care during this time, which is estimated to be worth millions of dollars.

She is such an inspiration! @traceeellisross is a beauty inside and out! From being the daughter of an icon to becoming one herself, she is definitely a role model to women of all ages and races! I remember first seeing her in her hit show “Girlfriends” and loving her character Joan! And who [doesn’t] love her character on #blackish? She is definitely a #girlboss and beauty inspiration!

SPILLING THE TRUTH

Half of the people you meet in life won’t like you for the precise reason that the other half will. Might as well stop trying to please everybody because it’s mathematically impossible anyway. Paraphrasing Meg Ryan’s interview [in] InStyle October 2017. Loved this—so true. I know I’m not everyone’s cup of tea; some people don’t even like tea. I do: hot and flavored with orange blossom honey. Some people won’t get it; it was never for them anyway. —@DONNALAND423, via Instagram

DOING GOOD

Lin-Manuel Miranda + Vanessa Nadal THE TONY WINNER AND HIS WIFE, A SCIENTIST AND ATTORNEY, ARE COMBATING CLIMATE CHANGE WITH THE NATURAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL by SHALAYNE PULIA

What led you to partner with the Natural Resources Defense Council? “They employ lawyers and scientists who

work together to advocate for laws and policies that will protect our environment,” says Nadal. “The NRDC has an inherently deeper understanding of the issues because their lawyers get their facts straight from the scientists who study them. Since I have both law and science degrees, I find that important and impressive.” You’re running a worldwide fund-raising sweepstakes to benefit the NRDC: The grand prize includes two tickets to the London opening of Hamilton on December 21. Why did you want this contest to be international? “This is a global issue,”

says Miranda. “And Hamilton has fans all over the world. We worked hard to open up the sweepstakes and democratize it. The biggest donation doesn’t automatically win; if you want to give $1,000, that’s great, but you can also enter with smaller amounts, like $10 or $20. I love that. This way, more people from all over get the chance to participate and do good.” What’s the message about climate change you’re looking to spread? “Natural disasters—like the hurricanes that

devastated Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean— exacerbate existing social inequities in vulnerable, marginalized communities,” says Nadal. “We hope these donations from our international community can help build a more just and secure future for everyone.” What inspired you to take on this cause? “Some people, in politics especially, are hostile to the idea that climate change even exists,” says Miranda. “We’re all humans on this planet. And Vanessa and I have a child who will inherit this world. Everyone with a soul has a stake in this because climate change is happening, accelerating, and affecting us all.”

Climate change is happening, accelerating, and affectingg us all.”

Hamilton: The Revolution, known as “the Hamiltome,” details the making of the musical.

play at Hamilton will vated the newly reno lace Victoria Pa Theatre.

What have you been able to teach your son, Sebastian, so far about the environment? “He knows that food goes in the

compost, plastic bottles go in the recycling, and garbage goes in the ‘bin’—our son spent some formative time in London, so he says ‘bin’ instead of ‘garbage,’ which we think is utterly charming,” says Miranda. What can we all do to protect the earth for future generations? “In addition to being conscientious citizens

and supporting organizations like the NRDC, I’d like to see us continue to put policies in place that allow our planet to thrive,” says Miranda. “And we should listen to our scientists.” “Ha! Yes,” adds Nadal. “Everyone should listen to me—well...at least my husband should.”

I nST YL E D ECEM B ER 20 1 7

Two round-trip plane tickets and hotel accommodations are included in the grand prize.

HOW TO ENTE ENTER ER

Donate to the NRDC at prizeo.com/hamilton from Nov ovember 13 to December 6 for chances to win prizes including tickets to atten end w also Hamilton’s London opening with Miranda and Nadal. Donors will earn rewards, such as the fan-favorite “Hamiltome” (above).

JULIA GARNER THE COOL INDIE ACTRESS BREAKS THROUGH WITH A HIT SHOW ON NETFLIX PHOTOGRAPHED BY

JACK GRAYSON

THE STYLE

D

Despite her sweet demeanor, 23-yearold actress Julia Garner has noticed that she’s been getting a lot of side-eye stares lately. “I was just eating dinner in L.A., and this guy was giving me the strangest look,” she says, smirking. “I kept thinking, ‘Did I do something wrong?’ Finally, he walked over and said, ‘I’m sorry, but I just finished Ozark, and I’m really terrified of you.’ ” Anyone who has binge-watched the first season of the Netflix crime drama will understand his cause for concern. In it Garner plays Ruth, a 19-year-old criminal mastermind who—spoiler alert!—spends a good part of the season setting death traps for Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman), a money launderer who’s twice her age. Though she’s made the rounds on the indie-movie circuit—The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Electrick Children, Grandma—this role is Garner’s most high-profile to date and the latest in a string of unconventional characters the New York native has taken on wholeheartedly. “I accepted early on that I’m not going to play the girl next door,” says Garner, who got her big break as a cult member in 2011’s Martha Marcy May Marlene. “I’ve got this crazy, curly hair, and I’m kind of weird in a lot of ways. It’s fun to play someone more interesting anyway.” Garner has a similarly eclectic approach to fashion. “I’m one of those people who will wear really expensive shoes with, like, a $10 dress,” she says. Designers have responded in kind by inviting her to their shows: For the recent spring 2018 season she sat front row at Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, and Miu Miu, her favorite. “Miu Miu is the epitome of my style,” she says. “I always go for looks that are playful with a little bit of an edge.” Next, Garner will transform yet again, playing a sister wife in the miniseries Waco, about Branch Davidian cult leader David Koresh. Then she’ll start filming the highly anticipated second season of Ozark. “I don’t know what’s going to happen to Ruth yet,” she says. “I just hope she’s still a badass.” —JENNIFER FERRISE

FASHION STATEMENT f all the fashion clichés with h very y little basis in reality, none may be so persistent as the myth that designers are jusst a bunch of scheming meanies. Whether in The Devil W Wears Prada or Zoolander or on Saturday Night N Live e (think Maya Rudolph spoofing Donatella Versace), designers have been hilariously portrrayed in popular culture as imperious, poisonous, even villainous. v But, in fact, a few historic rivalries notwithstanding, m most of them m get along surprisingly well. As we come to the end of a tumultuous year, itt bears noting that today’s designers have embarked on w whatt appears to be a charm campaign, perhaps in an eff ffort to o cast their industry in a more favorable light. Every ywhere e you looked during the most recent runway season,, designers were showing up to support one anotther.. Donna Karan and Diane von Furstenberg made tthe journey to attend Ralph Lauren’s car-themed sho ow in n Bedford, N.Y. Alessandro Michele, Pierpaolo Picc cioli,, and Anthony Vaccarello sat front row at Versace in Milan, where the real Donatella and a cast of OG supermodels created a loving homage to the legacy of her late brother, Gianni. In Paris, Alber Kate Upton Elbaz came out for the Valentino show, Maria turned it on Grazia Chiuri was among the guests at Loewe, for Zac Posen. and Azzedine Alaïa stopped by Louis Vuitton. It’s an up-with-fashion moment at a time when people could surely use a mood boost. “We’re all really friends,” says Julien Dossena, the creative director at Paco N .Y.C . Rabanne, who represents a growing coterie of stars who’ve come into their own in Paris over the t e tions such as the LVMH Prize past few years. Through both jobs and competitions, Prize, that bring together young talents with established players in an intense environment, designers are forming networks that didn’t exist so publicly in the past. As a former member of Nicolas Ghesquière’s design team at Balenciaga, Dossena belongs to one of the most prestigious cliques of the moment, a group that also includes Natacha Ramsay-Levi, the new creative director at Chloé, who previously worked with Ghesquière at Louis Vuitton; the menswear designer Alexandre Mattiussi, of Ami; and the shoe designer Pierre Hardy. Dossena and Ghesquière Z AC POSE N routinely attend each other’s shows, and both could also be found at RamsayLevi th season. Rather than dismissing his protégée as an up-andLevi’ss début this coming Eve Ha arrington, Ghesquière told The New York Times how exciting it had been “for all a of us to see her rise and create her signature.” “We “ e formed a bond working together,” Dossena says. “So it’s important for us tto cheer for each other. We’re a family.”

LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE E BOY

Leslie Jones, Gina Gershon, and Vanessa Williams formed an impromptu cheering squad.

It’s not often that you see anyone e smile in the front row. Yet Leslie Jones could not contain her enthusiasm at Christian Siriano’s show, yelling so loudly that she nearly brought the house down. “At first I had no idea what was happening,” Siriano recalls. “I just heard screaming. But then it felt so real and wonderful to see someone get so excited about fashion.” It’s not just Siriano’s clothes that women love but also his commitment to representing all kinds of diversity. “With all the hate going on in the world, picking out a great dress should be fun,” he says. “Her size or the color of her skin shouldn’t affect that joyful process.”

PARIS

We don’t really know what is changing, but reacting with creativit y and optimism is the key.” —PIERPAOLO PICCIOLI

Alb A Alber ber er Elba Elbaz Elb az

Alber Elbaz

The soothing tones of Piccioli’s Valentino show were an elixir for dark times indeed.

It’s not just designers who are partticipating in the current love-in. Organiz zers of fashion weeks in New York, London, Millan, and Paris have all made a real effort to make ttheir cities literally shine, encouraging designers d i tto sett shows h outdoors or near monuments that had previously been off-limits. (Saint Laurent used a twinkling Eiffel Tower as a backdrop, while L’Oréal put on a runway show featuring Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren CH LO É on the Champs-Élysées.) Even magazine editors, who are a truly nihilistic lot, seem to be facing their daily adversities and existentiall crises with a stiff upper lip, and sometimes even a smile. A few publicists recounted their awe at seeing Anna Wintour, normally the first out the door after a finale, pause after each show to chitchat and pose for selfies. Well, business is tough for everyone. “We are all living in a confusing time,” Zac Posen told me e Nicolas at the start of the season, when he invited editors to pe ersonal Ghesquière a a and A Arizona previews of his spring collection in his New York City sh howroom.. M Muse Posen decided to forgo the usual runway hoopla and concentrate oncentrate on more practical clothes, including preppy cotton shirting separates and some delightfully upbeat party dresses in bright MTV colors. He said he wanted to put a message of positivity into the world and asked his friend Kate Upton to model the clothes. Of course she showed up. “Optimism, dreaming, and relief are more important than ever,” Posen said. “Our job is to create beauty and give people a platform for escape.” “Optimism” has become a contagious refrain among designers. Dries Van Noten, Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton, and Piccioli, the creative director of Valentino, all used that word to describe their collections. In comments to Women’s Wear Daily, Piccioli compared the current atmosphere with that of the late ’70s, concluding, “We don’t really know what is changing, but reacting with creativity and optimism is the key.” If that sounds like wishful thinking, it’s not. After a month of looking at bright, poppy colors in the spring collections (pink lavender, cherry tomato, and lime punch were among the top hues cited in a Pantone Color Institute report on New York Fashion Week), I could sense a new attitude among the fashion crowd. In the Céline atelier on the final day of shows in Paris, there was the publicity whiz Karla LO EWE Otto, whom I’ve never seen in anything but black, wearing a bright pink sweater. She was as surprised about it as anyone. “You know, I just bought three new dresses, and they’re all pink,” she said. “I keep thinking, ‘What’s happening to me?’” Q

22 STREET STYLE, OLD SCHOOL

Marc Jacobs does hip-hop? It’s not such a record scratch affter all. With a smart take on the New York music scene of his youth and a spare, silent show that cleverly turned into a loud y display on the street, Jacobs pumped up the volume big-time.

Katy, is that you? Nope, just Swift dressed in her rival’s signature spots. As for that Grammy Award? Swift, who has 10 of them, seems like a sore winner. Looks like this bad blood won’t end anytime soon.

33 TAYLOR VS. TOM HIDDLESTON

Swift’s backup crew wears “I ♥ TS” tank tops, a nod to the memeinducing shirt Hiddleston sported while dating Swift last summer. Conspiracy theorists also wonder whether the eight dancers represent her string of high-profile romances.

35

Swift reenacts the cringeworthy moment at the 2009 MTV VMAs when West interrupted her acceptance speech. “Um, I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative,” she says, poking fun at their eight-year tug-of-war.

34 TAYLOR VS. CALVIN HARRIS

Even the headstones in the graveyard scene have a bite to them. While one references the name of Swift’s new album, Reputation, another calls out Nils Sjöberg, the pseudonym she used to co-write her ex’s hit “This Is What You Came For.”

THE LOOK Model Isabeli Fontana with Ferretti

The designer with her dog, Alfonso

MY WEEK

Alberta

Dressed in her witty day-of-the-week pullovers, the Italian designer powers through to-do lists, deadlines, and a few well-deserved aperitivi in between BY ALISON SYRETT

Y I nST YL E D ECEM B ER 20 1 7

ou know how days tend to blur together during an especially busy workweek? For Alberta Ferretti, it was starting to become a problem. “With so many things to focus on, I’d completely forget what day it was,” she says. “My assistants joked that I should write it on a T-shirt to remind me.”

Instead, she made sweaters. Her Rainbow Week Collection, introduced in January, makes counting down the days look chic. The playful range has become a cult favorite (Chiara Ferragni, Leandra Medine, and Anna Dello Russo are all fans), not to mention a cornerstone of Ferretti’s own wardrobe. Here, she recounts some highlights from her schedule from the week leading up to the Venice Film Festival (and models pieces from her new resort collection).


Ferrett gown fro i fits a resort 2 m her 018 lin on Fonta e na.

Alberta Ferretti sweater, $495; at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Ferretti They call it Manic Monday, but I find myself energized by the start of any new week. On business days I’m in the studio by 8 a.m. because it gives me space to think alone. This morning I’m using the quiet moments to compile long to-do lists. I am constantly juggling several activities—sketching garments, sourcing materials, refining fits. Then, when my team arrives around 9 a.m., we discuss what needs to be accomplished and then spend the rest of the day doing it. Come Tuesday I’m meeting Isabeli Fontana at the Hotel Excelsior in Venice to dress her for the Venice Film Festival. She has walked several of my past shows, and I love her fun, positive energy. We have mocktails made with lime and orange and catch up. On a regular workday I will finish things by

6:30 p.m. and spend some time in nature. This Wednesday evening, for example, I take a long walk along the beach with my dog, Alfonso. It refreshes my mind. I was born, raised, and still live in Cattolica, Italy, a seaside town in the province of Rimini.

One of the ways I find that balance is through reading, and midweek is when I feel the need to slow down and dedicate time to activities I love. So on Thursday I dive into Our Souls at Night, by Kent Haruf. It’s a courageous story about love, hope, and pride. Then comes Friday: This is when I go through my designs and fine-tune silhouettes.

We consider a gown from my resort 2018 collection for her appearances but ultimately decide on a Tuesday sweater with a sparkly skirt, and another gown with Swarovski crystals and navy and white stripes. On weekends, when I’m not traveling to one of my offices in London, Paris, or Milan, I take advantage of our empty headquarters on Saturdays to draft new ideas and sort through old ones. I stay only until lunchtime, but these few hours of reflection and creativity are very important to me. Sundays, however, are for recentering my mind and body. With the help of my yoga master, Roberto, I practice relaxing exercises in the quietest room in my house, below the veranda by my indoor pool. It’s very peaceful there.

AMERICAN VO I C E S

HER EMPOWERMENT ANTHEM “RISE UP” PUT HER ON THE MAP. NOW DAY IS DEDICATING HER CAREER TO STANDING UP FOR OTHERS by SHALAYNE PULIA

What inspired you to write “Rise Up”? My music and my personal life were both stagnating at the time, and a friend of mine had been diagnosed with cancer. “Rise Up” started as a sort of prayer—I thought about what I needed to hear to be able to get back on my feet. Most of the song came streaming out in the first freestyle recording. Honestly, there are lines in there I’d normally find cliché. But sometimes a good cliché is exactly what you need in a moment of hopelessness. Black Lives Matter has adopted the song as its unofficial anthem. That’s right. It’s a huge honor because Black Lives Matter represents standing up to oppression and persecution. Having the group connect with “Rise Up” made me more aware that I need to use my platform to serve the community. You’ve also helped shed light on lynching in America by covering Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit” for the Equal Justice Initiative. What are you hoping to achieve by tying your music to activism? I want to tell the truth about the racial terror that’s happened and that’s still happening today in this country. Too often we change the narrative to make things more digestible, but the reality is, if we don’t address perform Common and Day injustice honestly and openly, we’ll never heal. thing” “Stand Up for Some erica. Am You collaborated with Common on Good Morning on “Stand Up for Something” for Marshall, a biopic on the first black U.S. Supreme Court justice. Why did you want to get involved with that project? I think our purpose as human beings is directly tied to how we help people. And Thurgood Marshall’s vision was exemplary of that, from his quest for equal justice to simply having true empathy for others. Whom do you look up to? People like Common, Stevie Wonder, and Michelle Obama are focused on love, healing, and serving others. They understand that just because you haven’t walked in someone Day covers Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit” for the Equal else’s shoes doesn’t mean his Justice Initiative’s Lynching in or her experience is any less America storytelling project. important than your own.

BADASS WOMAN

These days I rarely hold my tongue. I can’t help it.”

Speak NOW

The pressure to appear perfect once kept actress Gabrielle Union silent. Now she’s telling it like it is

W

hen I was younger, I was always trying to be a good girl. I didn’t ruffle feathers or question authority. I was very polite, even when faced with the worst kind of disrespect. I swallowed my anger when classmates asked me to do Buckwheat impressions or when friends’ parents told racist jokes in front of me. I wanted to be visible in only the “right” kind of way—through achievement in school, sports, or community endeavors, never through speaking my mind. Because calling anything out meant I’d be

126

I nST YL E D ECEM B ER 20 1 7

one of those kinds of black people: aggressive, threatening, and scary. Good-girl expectations froze me into silence in the face of hostility or crappy behavior. I learned to speak out once I became a rape survivor. In 1992, the summer after my freshman year of college, I was raped at gunpoint at my part-time job. And afterward the thing I was most afraid of was people thinking I was damaged, somehow less than perfect, even though I was the victim of a crime. I wanted to glide under the radar and magically heal on my own. I kept up a façade. But as I got older, I started letting go of the myth of the good girl little by little. I realized the world legit does not stop spinning because I made a decision or I said no or I held somebody accountable or I broke up with a friend or I ended a marriage. In 2000, when I was in my 20s, I had a role on City of Angels, a medical drama, and there was an episode where a serial rapist was loose in the hospital. It was close enough to my own experience that I knew I had to tell the producers. And around that time I got my first magazine cover story. In that piece I decided to speak about my rape because I realized that my silence wasn’t helping anybody. I was worried about being so honest. But I took the risk to say, “I’m a survivor. Rape is the most underreported crime in the world. Survivors are your mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, neighbors, classmates, and co-workers.” Since then I’ve told the story countless times, and it never gets easier—even now, 25 years later, talking about it makes me feel like I’m going to puke. But once I was open with my story, I saw there was no blowback from being honest. In fact, it only helped me connect with more people. These days I rarely hold my tongue. I can’t help it. Whether that means I’m calling out racism, misogyny, white privilege, or simply somebody who doesn’t know a basketball from a football insulting my husband’s abilities [Union’s husband is NBA player Dwyane Wade]. If I’m not saying something, it’s not because I’m unaware of current events or I don’t have an opinion—it’s generally because I haven’t figured out how to articulate my rage in 140 characters on Twitter. There have been moments when I’m like, “I’m not into getting death threats today,” so just for my own sanity, I scale back what I say. But that never lasts long. There are too many people who think they’re alone. If you have the key to somebody feeling a little more understood and you withhold it, you’re an asshole. I’ve realized that I’m never going to be everything to all people. So what? Life goes on. No matter what I do, the world keeps turning. Either I can do nothing out of fear or I can speak out to try to help someone. The latter always wins. —AS TOLD TO LEIGH BELZ RAY

Union’s first book of essays, We’re Going to Need More Wine, is out now.

BADASS WOMAN

The Woman Behind theWheels Meet Helen Emsley, the Brit with a rock ’n’ roll sensibility who designs some of America’s most in-demand trucks WHY SHE’S A BADASS

Raised in a mining town in Yorkshire, England, Emsley, a self-proclaimed black sheep, eschewed traditional math and science courses to go to art school, which was heavily encouraged by her “headbanger” father, who started taking her to rock concerts when she was 10. (AC/DC was a mutual favorite.) Initially interested in textiles, Emsley eventually obtained a master’s degree in transportt design at the Royal College of Art in Lon ndon—and was the only female student in n her class. Now, nearly 30 years later, shee’s based in Detroit as General Motors’ exeecutivee director of global Buick and GMC design, supervising roughly 100 employees. HER FIRST PROJECT AT GM When she was asked to refashion the interiors of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Emsley remembers saying to her boss, “I can see it in the press: ‘British Woman Kills Corvette.’” But her work was well received: The car’s sales more than doubled. DRIVEN TO SUCCESS Emsley usually starts her day by fueling up on caramel macchiatos and then touring various studios, checking out early sketches and quarter-scale clay models of cars that will typically be on lots five years from now. OVERCOMING OBSTACLES When GM filed for bankruptcy in 2009, Emsley used it as a teaching moment for her team. “Rather than [saying] woe is me, how do you turn it around

for the positive? I asked them, ‘If this were your company, what would you do?’” WHAT’S NEXT In October, GM announced its intention to work toward an “all-electric, zeroemissions future,” and soon it will introduce two new fully electric cars (like the Chevrolet Bolt EV, above). Emsley is leading the design charge. “We have the technology and talent to drastically move society forward and improve transportation for generations to come,” she says. When pressed for more details, she responds with her trademark British wit: “If I tell you, I’ll lose my job.” Q

PAINT COLORFUL WINGS

Get Festive with Glitter Like tinsel on a tree, nothing says it’s the holidays like a sprinkling of glitter on your skin. Putting a touch around the outer corners of your eyes, as makeup artist Lynsey Alexander did at Topshop, “has a wonderful, effortless quality,” she says. Try lining eyes then applying a layer of Vaseline over the perimeter; press matching flecks over the slick areas. And save your red lips for another party. “The secret with glitter is you can’t have too much makeup on with it,” she says. “It’s just a playful pop. You want it to look cool and lived-in.”


BRANDON MAXWELL

“The lashes are spidery and thick.”

BRONZE YOUR LIDS “I’m using lip gloss everywhere on the face except the lips,” says Pecheux, who created a shimmering bronze glow around the eyes and on the cheeks of Brandon Maxwell’s models. “I blended it over the skin with a foundation brush.” The effect is nothing short of ethereal. The last touch is a dash of black eyeliner. “It gives the look a bit of a sexy, naughty feel.”

“I’m using lip gloss everywhere on the face except the lips.”

Double Down on Mascara When your lashes are this major, you can make them the star of the show. “The lashes are spidery and thick, while the skin stays natural, almost nude,” says makeup artist Peter Philips of his Dior look. When you want to channel Twiggy, consider this tip: “I think a perfectly drawn matte lip in a lively shade like coral or pink would look divine with these lashes.” Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D Lash Primer and Pump’N’Volume Mascara in Black Pump, $30 each; dior.com.

why aestheticians aren’t included in magazine beauty credits. “The aesthetician does all the work,” she says with a laugh. “I’m the one who’s been treating that celebrity’s skin for six months so the makeup looks that good. Where’s my ‘Skin by Georgia Louise’ credit?” As a kid growing up in England, Vassanelli knew she wanted to help people look better by treating their skin. Her mother worked for a cosmetic surgeon whose patients needed reparative surgery because of abuse or illness, so she saw firsthand how a new nose or corrected smile could instill confidence. She was also inspired by the rise of a fellow Brit. “I remember wanting to be as successful as Jo Malone,” she says. “Jo started in Chelsea; she had an oil and did face massage. So I went to beauty college and opened a place on King’s Road. I was 18 and just loved it.” Vassanelli tended to the complexions of London socialites, editors, and members of the royal family until love came calling in the form of an American (now her husband), with whom she crossed the pond six years ago. Within a few months in New York she met makeup artist Gucci Westman, who introduced her to, well, everybody, and word spread about the chic Brit with the magic hands. nds.

SoWhat Do You Do,

“AS A TEEN, I HAD A BALLERINA’S BODY,” Copeland says. So when her middle-school drill-team coach suggested dance classes, she took the tip and eventually studied at San Francisco Ballet School. Today Copeland, 35, is the first African-American female principal dancer with N.Y.C.’s American Ballet Theatre. During the six months a year when the ballet is in pend ssev season, she can spend ven hours every day training for shows like Swan he Nutcracker ( Lake and The N r (Copeland has a lead dance role in the upcoming ney m movie version of the Disney e latter). But caring for her body takes more than pliés. “You need a balanc th ce between eating clean and working out.”

SNACK SMART “I’ve been making my own kale chips for years. I pour a little apple cider vinegar over fresh leaves and pop them in the oven. My best friend hates vegetables, but even she loves these!”

COPELAND BACKSTAGE BEFORE SWAN LAKE

MAKE A BALLET BUN “Conditioner keeps my hair in place without making it look hard, like hairspray might,” says Copeland, who slicks her strands into a bun using this leave-in.

STAY ON YOUR TOES “Whenever I travel, I bring pointe shoes a and find a dance studio,” says Copeland, who isn’t above dropping into a local recrreational ballet class. “This isn’t a long care reer, so it’s really important to stay in tip-top shape and never stop dancing.”

PILATES, PLEASE When she isn’t in rehearsal, Copeland hits the treadmill and takes mat Pilates classes. “It helps my stamina,” she says. She strengthens muscles by doing 20 relevés, or rises from the ball of the foot, on each leg every morning. “When I’m in the studio, working hard on my body and performance, that’s when I feel the most beautiful.”

But she wouldn’t leave the house without blush,” says Nars, who went on to create a best-selling peach-pink powder called Orgasm in 1999. “I came up with the name first—I wanted something a bit bold—then created the collor,”” he says. The universally flattering shade gives skin n a natural-looking flush. “I had no idea it’d be so successful. It’s a very cheeky product! I’m proud.”” 2. THE SUPERS “The models of the ’90s—Naomi, K Kate,,

“I like interesting faces,” Nars says, which is how distinctive beauties such as Rampling and Swinton have come to be featured in his campaigns. “Theree

M MAN RAY Nars discovered Man Ray’s photography aas a teen and has been fascinated by it ever since. “As a makeup artist, I studied his models carefully: the shape ma of a lip, the graphic eyeliner, the placement of rouge on the cheek.” Now, in conjunction with the artist’s estate, N Narrs has released a limited-edition Man Ray–inspired ccollection of moody eye shadows, bright glosses, and h higghlighter embossed with the artist’s signature lip p print. “The incredible thing about Man Ray is how his sstyyle still seems new, even today.” —DIANNA MAZZONE

ou gave birth to your second child earlier this year. Did you love your body throughout the pregnancy?

Did you find it harder to lose the weight after Baby No. 2?

Without a doubt. I had to give myself breaks between training sessions, like, “We’re having tacos this week! Something’s gotta give.” You want to reach your goal I honestly had fun down to the last second of both pregnancies. I gained weight, but more than anything you want family time. Not to mention I was breastfeeding, so I pumped 60 pounds when I I went. One time I literally carried Future “I told myself, ‘I’m everywhere took a Starbucks cup and put ice in it to chill [son, 3], and when not gaining 60 the milk containers on a plane. There are all I got pregnant with Sienna [daughter, 8 pounds again.’ Then these different factors, and you do whatever months], I told myself, “I’m not gaining 60 I turned around it takes, but it’s not easy. pounds again.” Then I turned around and and gained exactly You tracked your weight loss on social media gained exactly 60 pounds. Once I’d made 60 pounds.” by posting pictures of your scale. What it through the first five months, it was like inspired that? It was actually a spontaneous something took over my body and said, moment, and I’m happy I did it because it definitely put “Eat Oreos, eat peanut butter, eat french fries—eat extra pep in my step. I thought, “If I put this out there, I everything that’s so bad but tastes so good.” I took full can’t go backward.” I also wanted to be vulnerable and advantage and indulged in everything I wanted.

share my weight with other women. We all have essentially the same challenges, and I think it helps to know that none of us are in this alone. How has having a second child—and a girl—changed you as a mom? I think for a woman there’s something even

deeper about having a baby girl. Knowing the life experiences I’ve gone through in this world, I just want the best for my daughter. I want the best for my son too, but it’s a very different connection. I felt more empowered than ever when I was pregnant with Sienna. I made 90 percent of my upcoming album while I was pregnant, and I want to show her by example that there’s absolutely nothing she can’t do. Do you want a third? I can see myself doing it again; that’s how much I love being a mother. My life is better with two kids and definitely more entertaining. It’s organized chaos—so many moving pieces, but in a good way. It’s all about organization and having a system in place. A supportive husband [NFL player Russell Wilson] also doesn’t hurt. It’s a blessing. It makes a huge difference when

you have a partner who supports you. He has this wonderful passion about family and our kids. We just speak the same language across the board. When I was trying to get back down to my goal weight, he was right by my side, running with me early in the morning in humid 90-degree weather. That’s love. How has your beauty routine changed, and what does it consist of? It’s super-low-maintenance.

I probably only have five to seven minutes to do my makeup and look decent. I think eyebrows are always important, so I start by filling them in with a pencil. Then I use concealer underneath my eyes and on my T-zone and swipe bronzer around my face. I like to give lips definition with liner and put a pinkish nude lipstick on top. Then I usually throw on some mascara, and I’m out. That’s literally it for me.

Who taught you your biggest beauty lesson growing up?

Probably my grandma, who’s so effortlessly beautiful. She’s one of those women who go to sleep and wake up fabulous. She’s always dressed to the nines. She never misses a beat—even if she’s going to the grocery store. I learned from watching her glamour. She set the standard of always being prepared and having yourself together. How would you define the word “beauty”? I think beauty starts from the inside, and confidence plays a huge part. It’s how you carry yourself, how you interact with people. I see beauty in so many women in the way they walk in and out of a room. There are many pretty faces, but uniqueness is what I find most beautiful. You’re one of Revlon’s newest faces. What was your first encounter with the brand? Coincidentally, my parents got

my name from an old Revlon fragrance called Ciara. My dad bought a bottle for my mom at Fort Hood, and she was like, “I’ve got the name.” So I always say this partnership with Revlon is a big shout-out to my mom because she put it into the universe. —KAHLANA BARFIELD BROWN

Gita Bass

ON SET WITH TAYLOR SCHILLING

THIS BEAUTY PRO MAKES GLOWING SKIN HER MISSION

“I WANT MAKEUP TO LOOK effortless, almost like an afterthought,” says Bass. To accomplish this, she likes to spike foundation with a shot of skin serum for extra luminosity and pair a radiant complexion with just one surprising pop of color—say, lavender eye shadow on Diane Kruger or berry lips on Julianne Moore. Here, the self-described beauty junkie spills her MVPs.

After mixing base with a dose of moisturizer, Bass applies the cocktail to skin with her hands. Warming the blend with fingers helps it go on more smoothly and sheerly, she says.

“Before makeup I roll this cooling stone over skin. It eases tension and feels amazing.”

Been on Pinterest lately? Ombré lip art is having a major moment. And while these adorable new sticks make it easy to create that eye-catching color gradation, we’ve got a few tips to take the trend in a sophisticated direction. First, diffuse the edges so the look doesn’t come off as harsh. Then blot with a tissue for a soft, blurred effect overall.

The Julia Roberts on raising teenagers, avoiding the tabloids, and putting the best in Western by JESS CAGLE photographed by CARTER SMITH

It was 2001, and Julia Roberts was in the final days of shooting the film America’s Sweethearts. I was on set to interview her for Time magazine, and I was excited to meet her. Her publicist, Marcy Engelman, introduced us in the actress’s trailer. “We’ve met before,” Roberts said. I assured her we had not (I mean, it’s not like you’d forget meeting her). But she insisted I seemed familiar, so I suggested that maybe she’d seen me on TV—realizing only after it came out of my mouth that it sounded incredibly douchey. She gave me a look and responded, “That sounds like something George Clooney would say.” And that was the moment I fell in love with Julia Roberts.

Sixteen years later we are once again in a trailer, this time on a ranch not far from Roberts’s Malibu home. It’s a blazing hot fall day, so she’s taking a break from our cover shoot with the air-conditioning on full blast. Her son Phinnaeus (Finn)—an unerringly polite, sharp, and funny redhaired 12-year-old—is hanging out as well; he’s feeling under the weather, so Roberts brought him here to nap under her watch. He also occasionally monitors the interview. When I ask Roberts what advice she would share for looking and feeling great, Finn comes over and whispers in her ear. She looks back at him. “Give birth to a redhead?” she asks. He laughs and nods, and Mom answers the question: “Marry the right person, give birth to a redhead, and have great girlfriends. Those would be the three keys to joy.” A lot has changed in the past 16 years for Roberts. When we first met, she’d just won the Oscar for Erin Brockovich. Now the role she’s most focused on is soccer mom. (She’s good at it, and there are performances every weekend.) By the time you read this she will have turned 50 (on October 28), and she’s remarkably sanguine about it. “I always love my birthday,” she says, and she will celebrate “with open arms and gratitude…There’s nothing different about this birthday than any other one.” She’s adamant about this, in part because she’s troubled by reporters who ask her about turning 50 as if it must be a source of trauma. “Really, people?” she says. “Are we still in that space? Did anyone go over this with George Clooney or Brad [Pitt] before their 50th birthdays?” Still, this has been a year of milestones for her. Last summer she and her husband, cinematographer Danny Moder, celebrated 15 years of marriage. Their son Henry turned 10 in June. (The family marked the occasion with a soccer party at their house.) In November their twins, Hazel and Finn, will be 13. Watching them grow into teenagers, she says, is bittersweet. “All the clichés are true,” she says. “I’m so proud of them but also…” She momentarily trails off. “I tried to carry somebody up to bed the other night, and it was just”— she claps twice, like a mom hurrying the kids along—“‘All right, you’re gonna have to get on your feet and sleepwalk because I just can’t get up the stairs.’” There have been work milestones as well. Roberts just signed on to produce and star in a TV series for the first time—Amazon’s Homecoming, based on the critically acclaimed psychological thriller podcast (it starts shooting early next year). “[Listening to the podcast] you never know what’s happening, really, and I love that,” she says.

Like many movie stars before her, Roberts believes that TV has become the entertainment industry’s most exciting medium: “I don’t want to go against my peoples, but it sort of is. There’s a lot of really good content and a lot of diversity.” Still, she considers the project “a total experiment…I don’t even know what it really requires. I just know how to watch a TV show. I don’t know how to make one.” After sitting out the movie business for more than a year, Roberts—also a face of Lancôme—now has a new film, Wonder (based on the best-selling YA novel by R.J. Palacio), in which she plays Isabel, the mother of a little boy (Room’s Jacob Tremblay) with a severe facial deformity. Isabel—who’s torn between protecting her child and sending him out into the world, and balancing her own needs as an artist with the needs of her family—is an extremely revealing reflection of who Roberts is right now.

“There’s no way to describe [my life] without sounding sappy or ridiculous because everything in my mind ends with an exclamation point.” Asked how she feels about her life today, she says, “There’s no way to describe it without sounding sappy or ridiculous because everything in my mind ends with an exclamation point. And the thing is, we have these three human beings who are just a complete reflection of the affection we have for each other.” She goes on to tell how Hazel recently cut her hair and donated it to an organization that makes wigs for kids with cancer. “That’s a big deal for a girl who’s about to be 13 and has this cascading blond hair that gets commented on a lot,” Roberts says. “But she’s so good and brave. She sees it as something else.” Roberts’s own upbringing in Smyrna, Ga., is often described as difficult: Her parents (who ran a theater company) divorced when she was 4, and her father died of cancer when she was 10. But her bonds with her mother, Betty, and her big sister, Lisa, were strong. Of course they were also still siblings. “My sister and I used to get into

knockdown, drag-out [fights], just beating each other up,” she recalls, laughing. “And then it would be, ‘OK, no hair pulling, no scratching’…and we would just rule ourselves out of being able to do anything, and that would be the end of it.” Her brother, Eric, was 11 years her senior, “so he didn’t really play with us,” she says. Finn, awake again and listening to Mom’s interview, whispers into her ear. “That’s not a playful story!” she tells him. She shares it anyway: “Eric would pin you down and spit in your face and then, before it hit, suck it back up. And he didn’t always have the timing to suck it up. There were probably a couple of years in my little life when really all anybody ever heard me say was ‘Daddy!’ and he would come grab Eric by the scruff.” After high school, she followed Lisa and Eric to New York City. There she worked at odd jobs between auditions.

herself—“I’m like, ‘What?!’ And turn to the man behind me and go, ‘Not true, sir!’” Somewhere along the way, Roberts has learned that fame and other people’s opinions are best left unacknowledged. She’s successfully achieved normalcy, regularly playing mah-jongg with friends and eating dinner with her family every night. “I truly love cooking,” she says. “One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is you can just spend days cooking. You aren’t obligated to do anything else. I think I got that from [my mother] and learned by being in the kitchen with her, watching her do it.” Betty died after a battle with lung cancer in 2015, and Roberts is still recovering. That—along with the deaths of two close friends and mentors, Closer director Mike Nichols (in 2014) andPretty Woman director Garry Marshall (last year)— has caused her, she says, to focus on “where you invest your love in your relationships.” Roberts’s mother remains a constant presence in her life. Inspired by Betty’s talent for making everything from scratch, she likes to give friends and family homemade Christmas gifts. She once gave out vintage cookie jars she’d collected, each filled with homemade cookies. “One year I did needlepoint things,” she says. “I would do, like, a needlepoint tray or a needlepoint door brick. Doesn’t that sound like a present you would want to get? A needlepoint door brick?” Finn pipes up again, “We have a needlepoint door brick.” Roberts smiles and says to him, “We do have one Grandma made.” When her mother was dying, “we were all really with her every minute up to the end, laughing with her and just having this insanely fulfilling experience,” she says. “My kids’ perspective on it was incredibly nourishing for me. I was their age when my dad died. Death was so mysterious and weird and scary. It was treated in a very strange way back then. I just absolutely wanted them to have the opposite experience with their grandmother. Danny was totally supportive in that. It was a completed experience they had with their grandmother as opposed to an interrupted experience.” Toward the end of the day, Hazel arrives, fresh from school (meanwhile, Henry is at soccer practice), and finds her mom sitting in the makeup chair as Serge Normant, Roberts’s longtime friend and hairstylist, prepares her for the last shot. Roberts asks her daughter, “Can you believe this is what I call work?” which makes Hazel laugh. Asked what an ideal day for her family entails, Roberts answers, “I would say that our ideal days are kind of our typical days.” She says that lately—because Moder has been away working on a movie—“the only thing missing is my husband, who’ll be home in a few weeks.” “And,” Finn adds, “soccer every day.” “And soccer every day,” confirms Roberts. “All roads lead back to Danny. And soccer.” Q

“I don’t need to know every weird, mean, untrue [tabloid claim].” Of all the employees at the Athlete’s Foot on the Upper West Side, Roberts says with pride, she was the fastest shoe lacer. She was working at an Ann Taylor store at South Street Seaport when she auditioned for 1988’s Mystic Pizza. During the audition process, she was advised to dye her copious, curly blond hair dark brown. She accomplished this with an entire can of colored mousse. “It was so brown and stiff and curly, and I had this audition with Adam Storke,” who ultimately played her love interest in the film. “I was so selfconscious of how stiff my hair was—and he’s touching it, and his fingers are turning black.” After the audition, on the way from the subway to her apartment, she got caught in the rain, which sent the mousse dripping down her entire body. Still, she got the job. Steel Magnolias, Pretty Woman, Flatliners, and megastardom soon followed. For nearly three decades now, watching Roberts’s life unfold has been a kind of national pastime, but she avoids reading things about herself. Earlier this year she told me, “I do believe that I don’t need to know every weird, mean, untrue [tabloid claim]. I only eat popcorn or my husband doesn’t love me unless I wear blue.” She says her frequent trips to the grocery store are “usually an uneventful experience. There is the odd occasion where I’m waiting, and I’m looking around, and”—seeing a tabloid headline about

Former Vice President Joe Biden is in the office of his Virginia home, pulling framed pictures of his children from the bookshelves. “This is my Beau,” he says as he picks up a photo of his late son, Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer in 2015 at age 46. There are other pictures of Beau: with his brother, Hunter; “when Beau was in Iraq for a year in 2008, while we were running”; and when he and his brother were teens with an ’80s-era Biden (brown hair, a more vintage gleam in the eye). The room is evidence of a fully lived life: There are photographs on mantels and around the floor as well as a raft of amusing political cartoons. There’s even a G.I. Joe Biden bobblehead, the inscription reading, “Don’t mess with Joe.” “Yup,” Biden affirms with boyish glee: “I’ve got bobbleheads too!” I meet Biden for the first time in his kitchen—he makes us both coffee from an espresso maker. He’s taller than you would expect (around 6 feet), leaner and more imposing than his Rockwellian “Uncle Joe” caricature would

So at the end of 2017, being OK is the priority. “Everybody’s healing. We’ll see how we all are, how we all feel.” In the book Biden reveals that his family (Beau especially) had pushed him to run for the 2016 nomination before Beau’s illness would consume them. “They thought it would give us purpose, bring us together.” Biden is, of course, aware he has something to offer to the presidency. “I think this moment in American history sort of fits into my wheelhouse and the strengths I have. I am, I think most people would say, fairly knowledgeable about American foreign policy. I’m pretty good at diplomacy internationally and bringing people together, cutting through and settling things. And I think what people are looking for most, and I hope I have it, is authenticity. I have great relationships with my Republican colleagues. They trust me, and I trust them. We can work things through. “And also,” he continues, “I think the defining issue of our time is sustaining the middle class. You know, when I got to Washington they called me Middle Class Joe, and it wasn’t meant as a compliment. But the middle class is the reason for our social and political stability.” He exhales. “Anyway, I’m familiar with the issues, and I think I could bring some talent there. So it’s not that I don’t think I’m equipped to do the job. We’ll just see.” Biden has been holding Beau and Hunter’s picture the whole time, finally putting it down. “Beau gives us something to dream about, to hope for. We’re all trying to do the things that he would have done. Now, whether that fits into running [for president], whether my health fits into my running … My health, thank God, is in good shape.” With that, he smiles and gives a loud knock on the wooden end table. rief has shadowed Biden’s life in a way that might seem unendurable to some. He was only 30 when he lost Neilia and Naomi, then 13 months old. So with Beau’s death, he has outlived not only a wife but two of his children. What he has somehow managed, though, is to distill grief and empathize even further because of it, achieving something of a comforter-in-chief quality. How? “This is a hard one, but let me go back … I learned really early on, after I lost my wife and daughter, that I could be a significant solace to people going through pain. After that happened I would go to somebody’s wake or funeral and even family members who didn’t know me would run up, throw their arms around me, and start crying as if they’ve known me for years and years.” Of course, Biden also met people who’d say to him, “I know how you feel.” He sighs. “You know they mean well, but after a while it’s like, ‘You have no idea how the hell I feel!’ It’s ungrateful of you, but that’s a tendency.” What Biden gained—if there’s anything to be gained— was an emotional stoicism. “You find yourself saying, ‘Well, they’re still standing. How do they do it?’” He recounts advice from a fellow widower: “Every day on your calendar, put a number, 1 to 10. (CONTINUED ON PAGE 248)

suggest. He is at the same time intimate and statesmanlike, the residue from 44 years of public service impossible to leave at the front door. (One thing that punctures the image, however: a teenlike habit of saying, “For real!”) Biden and wife Jill’s satellite residence since he left office, in January, is far enough away from D.C. to breathe but close enough for them to reengage in person. And reengagement is where we will start. In his memoir Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose, which comes out on November 14, Biden chronicles his life from 2014 through 2015. (He describes it as “from the time of Beau’s diagnosis to when I announced I wasn’t running for president.”) In those years Biden dealt with his son’s illness (requiring regular undercover visits to Beau at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center) while contending with a military crisis in Ukraine, meeting head-to-head with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and reconciling himself to the fact that Hillary Clinton would be his party’s nominee for president. The book, sometimes matter-of-factly, often heartbreakingly, details that very human push-pull. “I’d put so many bad thoughts out of my mind,” Biden says. “The way I’ve dealt with my Beau being gone is by thinking of him as the leader he was and the loving son he was, smiling and strong.” This filter also tinged memories too traumatic to remember clearly. While working on the book, Biden would recall conversations with Beau in his last months that didn’t happen exactly as he had thought—Hunter had to remind his father that Beau was encumbered by “a tube going down his throat into his stomach.” Biden breaks up a little, talking about it. “I just didn’t want to picture him … I found my mind playing tricks on me. You don’t want to see it. But I realized that time moves on either way.” And time carries with it another significant question: After deciding not to run against Clinton for the Democratic nomination last year, will Biden announce a campaign for president in 2020? “Look,” he says slowly. “I learned a long time ago that, first, three and a half years is two lifetimes in presidential politics. And second, my family is healing. I’m sure other families have had this experience, but the loss of Beau was a devastating blow.” He grabs another picture of the two boys as children, taken soon after Biden’s first wife, Neilia, and their baby daughter, Naomi, died in a car accident, in 1972. “This is after [Neilia] died, at the house we lived in, in Delaware. Beau and Hunter are a year and a day apart, and they had each other’s back in a way that is really unusual. Hunt was sort of Beau’s rib.” Beau’s loss left the family rudderless. “About five months after Beau passed, my granddaughter Naomi—who’s the love of my life, named after my deceased daughter—had a problem. She came to talk to me and said, ‘Pop, you know when Uncle Beau was here, he’d look at me and he’d say, “Honey, it’s going to be OK”?’” He pauses. “That had always been my role in the family, and I realized that Beau had taken it on for his generation. Then the next day my daughter Ashley said the exact same words. She said, ‘Dad, I miss Beauy so much. When he’d say, “It’s going to be OK, Ash,” I knew it would be.’”

Fun! never cared much about fun. Even as a kid, I felt as if it were just something other people had. Those children could jump in their bouncy castles and play with their Slinkies; I’d be catching up on my Jane Austen and figuring out what a line producer does. I don’t mean to say I was some kind of precocious genius—I barely understood the mechanics of sex, was scared of sleepovers, and needed a calculator to add single digits—but I considered childhood a test run for a successful career. And once I had that, my concept of fun was working from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and then eating pizza over my sink. Last year, the election scrambled my brain like an egg. And suddenly the old numbing agents—work, fatty food, staring at negative Instagram comments—didn’t work anymore. My heart was cracked in too many pieces to play pretend. I realized I needed to find a space in which the state of the nation didn’t play like haunted-house music in my head, a way to connect to the inner child I’d forgotten to connect with even when I was a child. I needed…fun. Slowly at first, like a foal rising to its feet, I tested activities I might enjoy. There was an aggressive crafting phase, a dalliance with coloring books, an involvement with Pinterest boards (“TV heroines’ bedrooms!” is a favorite), and the addition of two poodles and two hedgehogs to our family. (I love them all, but I would not consider the amount of urine I clean up “fun.”) It took a little time to figure out what my version of fun

198

I nST YL E D ECEM B ER 20 1 7

really was. Now, nearly a year later, I can officially report that I know what I like and I like what I know. Below, the top six activities that bring me joy:

1. Watching Reality TV

Listen, I know I’m approximately 17 years behind on this, but when it comes to manufactured drama, better late than never. While all reality TV is hypnotic in its idiocy, there are three shows that stand above the rest. Flipping Out, with Jeff Lewis; Tiny House Hunters; and, the queen of ’em all, The Real Housewives of Auckland, where the six most famous women in New Zealand (the only famous women in New Zealand?) launch their books at competing cocktail parties, create cat sanctuaries just for the opportunity to use the word “pussy,” and say their r’s super-weird. “You drunken chardonnay whore!” is my new greeting for all my friends and some of my enemies.

2. Throwing Parties I don’t really like going to parties, but it turns out I love throwing them! With the help of my friend Paul, a specialist in creating true glitz out of duct tape, old earrings, and a can of pink spray paint, I have hosted a Thanksgiving gourddecorating summit, an all-pink poodle birthday party, and a 68th-birthday party for my mother for which we found eight kinds of tinsel and a very affordable harpist. Aside from a “no jerks allowed” policy, party throwing is all about sticking fake jewels to things, serving pizza straight from the box, and making sure guests get a fun party favor like silver pom-poms or house slippers bought in bulk from a spa-supply website.

Model Malgosia Bela has a fresh perspective on fashion shows: the view from front row. “It’s been a nice change,” says the catwalk veteran, who just wrapped Paris Fashion Week as a full-time guest. “But I couldn’t help but notice when the girls on the runway were wearing uncomfortable-looking shoes. Been there, done that!” This could be Bela’s motto for any number of remarkable achievements. Since landing on the style scene in 1998, she’s been in high demand with major magazines and legacy brands (Comme des Garçons, Louis Vuitton, and Oscar de la Renta to name a few) and still found time to build an international acting résumé on the side (her latest project, director Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the Italian horror film Suspiria, is slated to come out in 2018). And while she’s quick to say the bulk of this professional success comes from a series of lucky breaks, a career like hers doesn’t last for two decades by accident. When Bela was a 20-year-old music student in Warsaw, Poland (fun fact: she’s still certified to teach piano), she was approached by a recruiter at a local theater. Although the job’s perks—glamorous parties! Free clothes!—didn’t tempt her, the nomadic lifestyle did. “My interest was piqued when [the recruiter] mentioned New York City because it was one place I could never afford to visit.” The following summer, Bela touched down in the Big Apple. Things moved quickly for her that first season: prime spots in buzzy shows such as Balenciaga and Givenchy, a starring role in Jil Sander’s campaign, and a cool new wardrobe of black Helmut Lang jeans and sample pieces from Marc Jacobs’s spring/summer 1999 collection. “He paid his models with clothes back then, and we wore them everywhere.” Despite her well-received début, Bela struggled

with impostor syndrome. “I felt out of place and unqualified,” she remembers of this whirlwind period. “I was always waiting for someone to realize I was there by mistake.” Now, however, she speaks confidently about her breadth of experience. “Collaborating with such fantastic people for the past 20 years has built up my self-esteem.” And Bela is ready to take her talents behind the scenes, as the editor-atlarge of Vogue Poland. “This position lets me move a bit away from the camera. I’m doing a little of everything, from production to creative direction to writing.” Not that she’s completely finished with starring in shoots. The images here, for instance, are a perfect example of highly personal projects she’d like to take on. “I styled and my close friend [photographer Chris Colls] shot these pictures out of my apartment in Paris. This is the way I prefer working now—intimate and no drama.” Something else that’s evolved over time? Her wardrobe. “My look is becoming more minimalist and chic as I get older,” she says. At 40, she gravitates toward labels like Céline that embody a classic yet conceptual vibe—and has finally learned to love high heels. “I used to always be in sneakers, but I’ve hit this magic moment where I want to embrace being a woman.” When we’re done speaking this morning, Bela will head home to Warsaw, where she recently relocated after years of bouncing between homes in New York, Los Angeles, and Paris. After going full speed these past several days, she looks forward to her “simple pleasures”: playing piano with her 13-year-old son, Jozef; reading Thomas Mann novels; and swimming an hour and a half every day. “Now that I’m living in Poland, things have come full circle. It seems I’m where I should be.” Q

A SEXY Christmas From belting out carols to canoodling with Santa, Neil Patrick Harris, one of Hollywood’s most beloved actors, is here to spread some holiday cheer photographed by MARTIN SCHOELLER

W We all know Neil Patrick Harris as an esteemed actor of screen and stage, a loving husband, and the father of adorable twins, but behind closed doors, his Christmas parties are, like Santa, the stuff of legend. Who better, then, to offer tips on how to turn up the heat this holiday? Taking time out from some of his more reputable pursuits—this month he appears in Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, and he will soon reprise his role as Count Olaf in Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events—the saucy NPH shares his secrets for getting into the spirit of the season.

Is it possible to have a sexy Christmas with family and friends around?

I think there’s room in the holidays to be a little bit sexy. When you have small children, you have to choose your times wisely, but, you know, the kids go to sleep. Stockings have to be filled, if you know what I’m talking about. Can I say that?

It’s out there now. Are outfits part of the allure?

I don’t have many holiday dressing tips because the weather tends to be cold, and ugly sweaters are not the sexiest. Though I’ve always yearned for a gift of someone just in a bow. Has that ever made it onto your wish list?

I keep asking Santa to deliver me someone wearing just a bow,


I keep asking Santa to deliver me someone wearing just a bow, but he thinks it’s a joke.” but he thinks it’s a joke. So does my husband [actor and chef David Burtka]. Maybe I’ll surprise him, but where do you put the bow? Speaking of Santa, are you going to tell your husband about that little rendezvous that happened upstairs?

So, we’re doing the photo shoot, and in walks Santa, and I mean, hello. We had a nice little time. I think I was mostly nice, and maybe a little bit naughty. We’ll see what’s in my stocking. What are some of your favorite sexy carols to sing?

What’s not sexy about Christmas carols? I mean, let’s be honest… just the stories behind them...so sexy. “O Holy Night”? “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”? Come on. “We Three Kings”? Nothin’ wrong with that. “Silent Night”? I don’t think so, not given these circumstances. How do you feel about eggnog baths around Christmastime?

Eggnog is ubiquitous during the holidays, and I have probably imbibed enough in my life to fill a bathtub. It’ll be fun to dip myself in the creamy deliciousness of eggnog, naked no less. My hope is always that I get kind of a spa treatment at the same time. Do you recommend them for the folks at home?

I would recommend taking an eggnog bath as often as you can. Eggnog comes around to the supermarkets only once a year, right? And usually in those quart-size containers, so if you can procure enough eggnog to fill a whole bath, that’s great. Otherwise you just wind up in a bathtub after drinking eggnog. You don’t want to do that—that’s a sugary headache disaster. So I recommend the eggnog on the outside, not on the inside. Do you have any entertaining tips and tricks for a sexy holiday?

I do like that there are more events during the holidays. There are parties, and you can decorate cookies. I like to serve ham at our parties; it’s a very sexy and underrated protein. Honey-glazed is the way to go. Is there a full bar at your Christmas parties?

Yes, I do love a good drink at Christmas. A strong punch, for sure. I try to make a mixology-style punch; it really takes the party to a whole other level. We did it last year, and a lot of people ended up spending the night, but I got my pick of the presents, so I was thrilled. How do you like to decorate your tree?

The one thing that makes the Christmas tree sexy is tinsel. I could talk about balls for days, and I sometimes do, but tinsel, hello. It’s actually quite comfortable, so in addition to decorating the tree, you can also wear it—although it tickles more than I realized. Q Fashion editor: Sam Spector.

The pop siren on how her makeup made…her by KAHLANA BARFIELD BROWN

The darker shades sold out almost immediately.) Here, Rihanna discusses how beauty helped her evolve from shy Barbadian to global phenomenon. Did you always know you wanted to do a makeup line? You have all these ideas of things you want

for yourself, and for me, beauty was a natural fit because makeup is such a huge part of my career and image. I wanted to do a line for years, but it needed to be credible, something that industry pros and girls around the world would respect. Do you have a favorite product? I love the Killawatt highlighter because you can use it in so many ways. I put it on my eyes, cheeks, and body. It goes on smooth, and the texture is superfine, almost like liquid—plus it’s extremely high-shine. There’s a ton of different colors. As a woman of color, I’m most impressed by the range of foundation shades. So often, makeup brands leave us brown girls hanging. That was very

important to me. I wanted

ipstick in Barbados? Not unless I was a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding,” recalls Rihanna with a laugh when asked about her teenage beauty routine. “My mom wasn’t flexible. I wore no makeup.” Though she wasn’t allowed to partake, Rihanna says her mom, who worked at a cosmetics counter back in the day, inspired her passion for makeup and perfume. Now 29, and with a few credits of her own under her belt (pop icon, designer, actress), Rihanna has channeled her lifelong love of maquillage into Fenty Beauty, her hot new line that has earned raves from both the industry and the general public since it launched in September. Though she loathes the idea of promoting “perfection” (“everyone is beautiful in their own way,” she says), the most buzzed-about products are the ones that allow her fans to share in some of her glow. They include 40 shades of velvety matte foundations that cater to women of all skin tones. (Worth noting:


If I’m not feeling it, I go to the mirror and get my beat together.�

After 2–3 minutes, add orange and kumquats and stir. Cook for 4–5 minutes, stirring. Add cubed bread and salt to taste. Stir-fry for 4–7 more minutes, until you have a doughy mass. Remove from heat, and add ground sumac. Set aside. 3 Place orange peel, honey, dill, sesame oil, cayenne pepper, and sambar curry powder in a bowl; stir to form a paste. Set aside. 4 Wash hens

After 5 more minutes, remove and glaze hens with the orange-peel paste. Cover with foil. Bake for 15–20 minutes, basting often. Uncover for the last 5–7 minutes to roast the skins well. 6 Scoop out the stuffing; if stuffing is too wet, place it in another baking pan and return to the oven for a few minutes. Meanwhile, transfer hens to a large platter. 7 Spoon stuffing around the birds. Serve hot. —REPORTED BY CLAIRE STERN


Joe. CO N T I N U ED FRO M PAG E 1 94

One is feeling as bad as the moment you got the news, and 10 is the best day of your life. You won’t have any 10s. But mark it down every day and, after four months, take a look at it all. You’ll find the downs are just as far down, but they get further and further apart, and that’s when you know you might be able to make it.” We wade into shallower territory: How many hugs has Biden given and received over his 75 years? “Oh god!” he hoots. “Jill sometimes tells me I’m too touchy and feely with men and women. But I had a mother who never walked by me within arm’s length without touching me. And she used to say, ‘Joey, if there’s anything nice you see about someone, tell them. If there’s a young woman or young man who has beautiful eyes, tell them they have beautiful eyes!’ So I guess I’m able to bring a little bit of peace to other people.” In the book Biden also writes about his 2008 decision—encouraged by Jill— to accept Barack Obama’s offer to be his vice presidential running mate. (When Biden told her, “I’ve never had a boss. How am I going to handle this?” she replied, “C’mon, Joe. Grow up.”) He characterizes the position as a “truly odd job.” What did he learn? “Not to inadvertently preempt the president,” he says. “The most glaring example of my doing that was my coming out for gay marriage [on Meet the Press in 2012]. I had to learn that even when I agreed with him, I had to make sure I didn’t announce whatever it was first. It took a while to get into the habit of not talking to the press about what I knew or thought should happen.” Biden’s frankness often became very public—most notoriously, when President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act in 2010, Biden was heard to say in his ear, “This is a big f—ing deal.” Of his “gaffes,” Biden laughs like a man who knows well his blessings and curses. “No one ever doubts I mean what I say and say what I mean. For real!” Obama and Biden’s friendship is the stuff of both political and Internet lore. When asked about the moment that defined the two as friends rather than colleagues, Biden replies, “Barack has always been very interested in my family, asking me, ‘Why did you do that?’ ‘How did you do that?’ ‘How did that happen?’ Because here’s a man who had a pretty disconnected upbringing. My family seemed to intrigue him.” The Obama and Biden

248

I nST YL E D ECEM B ER 20 1 7

families grew close—so close that the Biden grandkids and Obama’s daughters had a sleepover in the same hotel room at the 2008 Democratic convention. Obama was also deeply invested in Beau’s treatment. “When Beau had what we thought was a stroke two years before it got diagnosed as cancer, Barack came running down the hall saying, ‘Joe, is Beau OK? Joe, is he all right?’” Obama also offered to help financially after Biden had considered selling his house to pay for treatment. “Barack was emotional. He said, ‘Joe, don’t do that, don’t do that! You love that house. Don’t do that. I’ll give you the money.’” He quotes Obama telling friends and staff, “‘Joe and I make up for each other’s weaknesses.’ Actually, he makes up for many more of mine than I do his. I’m a little more passive and obsequious than he is. As he would say, ‘Measure twice, cut once.’ Mine is, ‘Take a good look, and if you have to act, act!’” By the end of their second term, the two starred in a very publicly embraced bromance. According to Biden, one of Obama’s favorite BFF jokes is “when he made me a friendship bracelet.” He chuckles. “I think the reason the memes worked is because no one has ever doubted the authenticity of the relationship. And by the way, we have had shouting matches too, but that’s what brothers do, that’s what friends do. They don’t let insults or hurts go unattended.” As for Biden’s favorite viral moment? “The video where he’s lying on the couch in the Oval Office and there are, like, 25 pairs of Ray-Bans. I’m putting them on and saying, ‘How does this look?’ And he says, ‘Joe, they’re all the same!’ And I say, ‘They capture different moods!’” (Full disclosure: I’d brought Biden three pairs of Ray-Bans—what I had thought would be a witty gift—only to discover that he is sent Ray-Bans all the time. But he’s a good sport about it. “Oh, I like these!” he says of a gleaming gold pair with clearish lenses. “Great for reading!”) Post–White House, there’s less reading time for Biden than one would think. He’s currently a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, which has named a center for foreign policy after him, and he’s been asked to work on domestic policy with a team at the University of Delaware. He and Jill remain “deeply involved” in the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Moonshot and have established the Biden Cancer Initiative. “I’m also involved in serious efforts dealing with the threat of Putin in Europe, and

European unity,” he explains. “And I’ve been traveling, working on policies ... so I have a full plate.” The greatest adjustment of all: metabolizing the Trump administration’s priority of reversing everything ObamaBiden achieved. “This is not who we are as a nation,” Biden says bluntly. “This is not the America I know. When I saw what happened in Charlottesville, President Trump challenged everything I believe about the actual existence of this country. I think this is a battle for the soul of the nation. “My dad’s phrase was, ‘Everybody’s entitled to be treated with dignity, Joey, period. Period,’” Biden continues. “That’s the reason I’ve been trying not to be critical of Trump and give him a year to get going. But my dad truly believed, and I do too, that silence is complicity. And to remain silent when the president gave succor to these voices in our society that have always been talked down ... Anyone who thinks this is going to pass without a fight is mistaken. There’s no permanency to civil rights. There’s no permanency to democracy. You have to fight for them.” Biden goes on to detail America’s checks and balances before returning to the administration. “Look at what these guys are doing. They attack the press first. That’s the most dangerous damn thing in the world. Next, they’re going to try to delegitimize the courts. This is not by accident—this is an aggrandizement of power. And it’s done under the sheepskin of populism. They don’t give a damn about the people I come from. They don’t give a damn about that guy who has a high school education and is busting his ass, or that woman who’s a waitress. Come on, man! They don’t give a damn about that.” To hear Biden talk like this has a visceral impact, equal parts motivating and distressing. So it helps immeasurably when he calls himself an optimist. “I think I know the American people. We are better positioned than any nation in the world. We have the most productive workforce in the world. We have the greatest research universities in the world. We have everything going for us. We just need to stand up!” So Biden will keep on preaching decency, honoring his late son, and, for a good while yet, considering that presidential run. “My dad had an expression, for real,” he remembers. “‘A lucky person gets up in the morning, puts both feet on the floor, knows what they’re about to do, and thinks it still matters.’” Q

3. Leaving Party Decorations Up This is connected to Item 2 but is a joy all its own. Allowing your decorations to glisten and decay is kind of a perverse luxury. Every day when you get home and drop your keys, there’s just a moment when it feels like someone is about to yell, “Surprise!” 4. Googling a Celebrity’s Romantic Past I’ve been known to spend an hour or two on one candidate (say, Chris Pine), getting a sense of whom they dated when, where the pair enjoyed lunch, and (if the images predate 2012) what kind of subtly ridiculous fashion choices they were making (not you, Chris—ya been killin’ the game a long time). While this may seem “sad” or “crazy,” what’s more fun than the study of human behavior? A related activity: diving deep into the aforementioned celebrity’s IMDB page. You will invariably take some fascinating left turns, and suddenly you’re remembering that Chris Pine was the male lead in Just My Luck and, wow, Chris Pine has been through so much, I am so proud of him. 5. Dancing I love to dance. Whether it’s Ailey (self-taught), jazz (also selftaught), or hip-hop (Rihanna-on-YouTube-taught), it takes me out of my churning head. But did you know that there is likely a dance studio with classes for adults near you? You can return to a time when your tutu wasn’t just for a Madonna Halloween costume and forget your troubles for an hour of foot-twisting, ass-busting dance mania. Do not be afraid to freestyle when the moves get challenging. It’s only quitting if you sit down. 6. Snooping Do you love walking around your neighborhood listening to Joni Mitchell? Why, yes, me too. Do you also enjoy peeking into people’s windows to get a better sense of how others spend their time? Yup, I’m also into that. Forget what the “cops” say: As long as you don’t literally sidle up to the residence, a casual gaze into your neighbor’s family room never killed anyone. Don’t go all Rear Window on me. Don’t make eye contact with anyone. But look at their weird leather sofa and appreciate the many ways there are to be a person on this earth. Q

Definitely when I wore a Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown and a doobie wrap with bobby pins to the American Music Awards [in 2013]. It was just so wrong. I couldn’t believe what I was doing, but I ended up loving it so much that I kept wearing my hair like that for the next two weeks. I pinned it every day and everything.

everyone to feel included. We actually started with foundation because it’s the very first makeup product I fell in love with. What was your first experience with foundation?

When I was a teen back in Barbados, I was in a pageant, and my mom did my makeup for it. I will never forget the feeling I had after seeing how even my skin looked when she put foundation on my face. And I remember my brother being so upset. He was like, “You’re gonna put that on every day?” I loved it. It’s like Photoshop. I like my makeup to look like skin—really good skin. I read that your mom used to be a professional makeup artist.

That’s true. She worked behind a cosmetics counter at a department store in Barbados, and she did makeup for weddings. That’s where my obsession for cosmetics and perfume came from, but I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup unless it was for a special occasion. Tell me about your look in high school. What was your go-to hairstyle?

I wore cornrows until I got a perm. Then once I got a perm, I rotated between ponytails and wearing my hair pressed straight. But when I would go to the hairdresser and my hair was freshly done, I wouldn’t put it in a ponytail until it got a little greasy. I had some really strange hairstyles, though. I would do stuff like pull one random piece out of the ponytail or have two cornrows braided down the middle of

I start by looking for my outfit, and even that can be like, “Ugh, I gotta figure something out.” If I’m still not feeling it, I go to the mirror and get my beat together. Makeup is therapeutic for me. Once I start my glam—the makeup, the hair—I’m good. I’ll play music, find the good light in the bathroom, and just have a great time. That’s what gets me motivated. You always seem so confident. What pressures have you gotten over?

I don’t know if it was a confidence thing, but I was very shy at one point. I knew what I was about and what I stood for, but I was not very vocal. In the Barbadian culture there’s this thing we say: “Speak when you’re spoken to.” It’s polite not to blabber. It took me a couple of years to come out of my shell. At what point in your career do you think you came into your own?

I would say after Good Girl Gone Bad [2007]. That album led me to this place where I was like, “What is there to lose?” I just have to be myself. I have to be at peace every day of my life. What advice do you have for young girls who might be struggling with their identities in this age of social media?

The biggest mistake you can make is to compare yourself with someone else. I hate the pressure that’s being put on us by social media. Young girls don’t know which way to go; they’re still figuring themselves out. And what we’re teaching them through social media is this idea that you have to be perfect. I just reject that at every cost. I only know how to be me, and people thrive when they’re who they’re meant to be. I can only try my best to encourage girls and women to respect their uniqueness and be 100 percent true to themselves. Q

WHY I LOVE RUNNING MARATHONS

by CHRISTY TURLINGTON BURNS In 2011 my charity, Every Mother Counts, was given a few spots in the New York City Marathon. I wasn’t much of a runner at the time, but competing in a marathon had always been on my bucket list. So I started training. That first race was challenging, of course, but there was something exciting about it too. You’re surrounded by thousands of other runners who’ve made the same commitment, which gives you an instant sense of camaraderie. It’s also an incredible way to see a city. I’d lived in New York for almost 30 years, and that day I ran through neighborhoods I’d never seen before. But the best part was that our team managed to raise more than $150,000 for our cause: to improve access to maternal care for women around the world. The race helped us fund everything from basic medical supplies to training for health-care providers in countries such as Haiti and Tanzania. And the experience was so gratifying that I train all year long now. I just completed the Berlin Marathon, where we raised more than $120,000. It was my seventh race, and I was able to run the 26.2 miles in just over four hours, which was my goal. When I crossed the finish line, I felt such a sense of joy—probably all those endorphins—and relief, but also accomplishment. It was a really beautiful thing.
