Welcome 112

Welcome to our March issue, and to a new fashion season! While summer may be drawing to a close, there’s a lot to get excited about for the cooler weather to come. Need some moral support after packing away your holiday wardrobe? Flip to p75 for our biannual Clothes We Love special. We’ve scoured the runways for the most compelling (and wearable) new trends and decoded them for you: think of it as your cheat-sheet to building a modern autumn look. You’ll also find new style resolutions that will make getting dressed in the morning that much easier, and more fun (p55), plus a sneak peek at the latest trophy accessories (p68). There were actual squeals of delight as the pieces arrived at our offices—I’m sure you’ll share the sentiment! I’m also thrilled to introduce you to our cover star, Bella Heathcote. The Melbourne native is making waves in Hollywood thanks to her latest film role in the much-anticipated Fifty Shades Darker, but the InStyle team fell for her down-to-earth Australian nature on the set of our shoot. Read her story on p101 and I’m sure you will, too.

The Shoot

As clouds thick with snow settled over the city, our Paris location was bathed in pale grey light that imbued the scene with a typically French je ne sais quoi. Cover star Bella Heathcote channelled the same dreamy magic in front of the lens, as she lounged around the Baroque apartment that served as our chic studio. Her favourite piece? The Chanel beaded blazer she wears on the cover.

The Look

Nicolas Ghesquière THE DESIGNER

FROM RIO TO PARIS, THE DESIGNER BRINGS A COOL NEW PERSPECTIVE AND SOCIAL MEDIA-SAVVY TO LOUIS VUITTON’S LEGACY

by ERIC WILSON


n October 5, 2016, the final day of Paris Fashion Week and the end of a month-long tour of the spring runways, Nicolas Ghesquière delivered one of those knockout shows that make the whole relentless slog seem worthwhile. It wasn’t just his collection for Louis Vuitton, which included some inspiring new directions in daytime suiting and a clever twist on the transparency that’s so pervasive on today’s red carpets. It was the whole captivating scene in a completely gutted building on the Place Vendôme that will eventually become Vuitton’s new flagship store. Particularly striking were the women in the front row: global stars Jennifer Connelly, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Léa Seydoux, Alicia Vikander and Michelle Williams, as well as newcomers Chloe and Halle Bailey, Sasha Lane and Sophie Turner, all wearing super-short looks from the most recent Vuitton resort collection, which had been presented in Rio de Janeiro in May. Many of them also donned Ghesquière’s lug-soled black booties (a big hit for autumn/winter), creating an irresistible tableau of bare legs for guests to post on Instagram, which is becoming as important a tool for designers to communicate their vision as the runway itself. “When you work on a show that is included in a fashion week, there is this marathon kind of feeling,” Ghesquière tells me. “By telepathy, each designer is passing the stick to the next one. Even RESORT 2017 if our work is completely separate, we Right: Louis Vuitton jersey are all connected by the fact that we are dresses, $12,600 (front), presenting one collection after another— $15,100, and canvas bag, $3,150. Above: palladium and canvas strong or less strong sometimes, with and palladium and leather rings, different messages. It’s beautiful, but the $525 each; 1300 883 880 amount of information we are all delivering in that moment is a lot. I’m sure you know what I mean.” Since he became artistic director of Louis Vuitton three years ago, coinciding with a period of intense industry upheaval that continues to reshape the designer landscape, Ghesquière has adapted to modern demands far better than most. He especially recognises the need to create a precise image that can cut through all the noise while also rising above it. Part of that attitude comes from experience. And part from confidence in his ideas, such as his much-copied abbreviated A-line silhouette introduced in 2014 or the terrific take on athletic femininity seen at the Rio show. “There are a lot of propositions as everyone is moving forward,” he says. “But what is interesting is that everyone in my generation has now become part of the establishment, like Phoebe Philo, Riccardo Tisci, and Raf Simons. Now I see a lot of new people coming up, and you have

to laugh. I was lucky enough to have had a beginning of my career that was very quick and a playground that was fantastic. But it’s complicated to last, to keep your integrity, your consistency, and your style.” This is something Ghesquière does with remarkable equanimity, even after rumours this summer of tension at Vuitton, which the company tamped down by stating that Ghesquière’s contract runs through 2018 and emphasising the strong financial results of the brand in its earnings reports. As a designer for our times, he thrives on social media, juggles multiple collections with apparent ease, and, happily for us, has also embraced celebrities in a way that was never so obvious during his previous role at Balenciaga, where he spent 15 years. “I love that there are so many different profiles of the people who are surrounding me,” Ghesquière says, citing muses ranging from Connelly to Selena Gomez as reflective of Louis Vuitton’s diversity. “It’s about different generations and different talents who hopefully find what I do interesting, and suddenly the story is working.” During a weekend of events toasting his resort show at the stunning Oscar Niemeyer–designed Niterói Contemporary Art Museum, which looks like a cement spaceship rising from the dramatic shoreline of Rio, it was possible to see just how deeply the recent phenomenon of


The Look globe-trotting cruise collections has influenced his thinking. Here, you could take a stroll through the darkly chic Hotel Fasano in the neighbourhood of Ipanema and discover Vikander lounging by the rooftop pool, Catherine Deneuve smoking a cigarette in a hallway as she waited for an elevator, and Jaden Smith dancing in the lobby to a song that could only be heard inside his head. Vuitton, with its origins in luggage-making, has a natural association with travel and is one of only a handful of brands that can afford to regularly mount productions at such exotic destinations. (Chanel, Dior, and Gucci are the others.) Its choice of Brazil might have been controversial for many reasons, among them the nation’s struggling economy, the risks of Zika, and the contrast of promoting luxury goods in a city famous for its favelas. But the show was ultimately viewed as a big success for its positive reflection on a rich cultural heritage, with references to the soccer prints of Brazilian artist Aldemir Martins, Carioca ruffles, and a bag shaped like a boom box. “Until the moment that it is happening, you don’t know if it is going to work,” Ghesquière says. “You put together a few elements—the location, obviously, the weather and the landscape of Brazil, and you take 50 girls, put the dresses on, and then the show starts. My feeling afterward was just one of fulfilment. Even to me, it looked extraordinary, and I’m supposed to be the one who orchestrated it. It was like filming a blockbuster!” And then came a challenge. Images from that show were seen widely in May, but the collection has only recently arrived in stores. In the interim came the spring collection in Paris, which had everyone talking about—and dying to get their hands on—the new mobile phone cases that look like scaled-down versions of Ghesquière’s trunk-inspired Petite Malle bags. The designer is fairly philosophical on the subject. “People want what they see, and usually they want it quite quickly,” he says. “But some pieces need a bit longer than thinking and making, and those things we should protect, because it’s about pure creation. We can’t do ‘buy now, wear now’ with everything we are doing because that would burn the effect of fashion.” Ghesquière’s solution has been rather elegant in its simplicity: he relies on celebrities to deliver the season’s news in real time (as he did with the resort looks seen in the front row of the spring show). Of course, the results can also be startling sometimes, as when Taylor Swift, Gomez and Vikander wore his space-age gothic dresses to the Met Gala in 2016. The New York Post followed with a headline that asked, “Is Louis Vuitton ruining the red carpet?” “That’s nice,” Ghesquière laughs in response. “This is a tricky game. I understand the pressures actresses face with the judgement of the fashion police, but sometimes when you try to be too safe, you bore people and you lose a part of your personality. I question that more.” And, as with everything, he looks at the bigger picture. Ghesquière was once trashed for the earthy grey Balenciaga gown he created for Connelly at the 2002 Oscars, but in retrospect it helped establish his reputation as a daring designer. Likewise, he encourages his clients to be respectful of the occasion for which they are dressing, but also to be brave, if only for the sake of fashion. “The image that stays,” he says, “will represent our time in the future.”

“Women are now free to mix athletic clothes with things that are more sophisticated. It’s a way of life”

SPRING 2017 FROM TOP: Ghesquière’s latest collection explored the dressier side of daywear and sheerness for night, along with covetable accessories that turn phones into Petite Malle clutches. Meanwhile, the stars of the front row offered a flashback to the best looks from resort.

Outfit Resolutions IF YOU LIVE IN YOUR JEANS

Swap your skinnies for leather-look pants—they’re just as versatile, but offer extra polish, or rock-chick edge, for day or night

Denim doesn’t have to be all about jeans—an A-line skirt is a feminine take on the staple. Quirky extras prove pink can be pretty and cool

THE GUIDE TO

Leather JACKETS THEY’RE TIMELESS, VERSATILE AND OH SO COOL. READ UP AND FIND YOUR PERFECT FIT BEFORE WINTER HITS by NATALIE MELL and LAUREN INDVIK photographed by JOHN RINTOUL


Style

This Cut's for You

Haven’t found The One yet? Here’s a primer on the most iconic shapes, along with fit tips from Lupita Nyong’o’s stylist, Micaela Erlanger

BIKER

ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO

RACER

Marlon Brando and the Ramones made this 88-year-old bad boy— also referred to as a double-rider jacket— famous. Classic versions have an off-centre diagonal zip, one button-front, three zippered pockets, a notched collar and a belted waist. Erlanger suggests a shrunken fit to highlight a waistline. Iro leather, $1,959; 02-9362 1165

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAIL

If biker-chic isn’t quite your style, don’t discount leather jackets all together. Look for playful takes on the classic—like this star-spangled Sandro number—which mellow out the edgy vibe. Earthy shades also work to tone down the impact of the timeless textile. Sandro leather, $1,080; 02-9327 3377

ROSE BYRNE

A short mandarin collar, a centre zip and zippered side pockets are the hallmarks of this minimal, easy-to-wear design, popularised by motorbike-riding British soldiers returning from World War II. Its streamlined cut lends itself well to boyish builds, says Erlanger. David Lawrence leather, $649; davidlawrence.com.au

BOMBER Modelled after the jackets issued to American military pilots in World War II and into the 1950s, this oversized style typically features a centre zip, front-flap or diagonal slit pockets, and a ribbed collar, cuffs and hem. Erlanger especially loves the slouchy silhouette on petite frames.

BELLA HADID

Camilla and Marc leather, $1,099; camillaandmarc.com

SURFACE VALUE Material is everything when it comes to choosing this kind of outerwear, says Jason Schott, whose century-old family business, Schott NYC, is widely credited for making the first motorcycle jacket in 1928. We picked his brain about the pros and cons of six different options. LA M BS K IN

S U ED E

COW HI DE

GOATS K I N

C A LFSK I N

POLYURETHANE

Buttery and cloth-like, this moulds readily to the body yet has a tendency to tear because of its delicacy. So don’t toss your jacket on the floor after a night out.

Because of its thickness and weight, it will take longer to break in than your typical lambskin or calfskin, but it is exceptionally durable and will last decades.

Lighter and thinner than cowhide but heavier than lambskin, it offers a nice amount of strength without too much stiffness.

Made by removing the top layer of goatskin or lambskin and sanding it to a smooth surface, it’s high-maintenance and stains can be difficult to treat.

Though not as soft and flexible as lambskin, it’s much more resilient, with a pebbled grain that looks even better with age and wear.

While perhaps not as sumptuous as the real deal, this faux option costs less, won’t stretch out, and is easier to clean.

Style HOW TO WEAR IT ANYWHERE

This piece is a total wardrobe shape-shifter, seamlessly slipping from the office to an “I’m glad I swiped right” rendezvous and everything in-between.

AS SMOOTH AS A BABY’S…

Keep your wares in top shape and they’ll last for seasons to come.

WORK

WEEKEND

DATE NIGHT

Rethink your weekday MO by swapping out your wool blazer for an oversized bomber. It appears sleek and brings a touch of cool rebellion when paired with a cleanly cut silk blouse.

Nothing pulls together an off-duty look—a striped tee, faded jeans, a skinny scarf, and hair left to air-dry—like a well-worn black moto. Finish with a structured bag to bring a sense of polish.

A zip-front jacket is transformed into an elegant topper when draped ever so lightly across the shoulders of a flirty floral-print dress. A graphic clutch will up the outfit’s playful vibe.

What You Get for $2,350 THE LINING This blended viscose and cotton fabric is super-breathable and durable—perfect for all day wear.

LET IT BREATHE If the inside lining of your jacket needs a refresh, gently use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust, smoke and dirt, then leave it out to air for a few hours to tackle any odours.

THE MATERIAL The polished, dyed-black lamb leather—sourced in Italy—has a soft and supple feel, becoming more like a second skin over time. THE POCKETS Sure, zip pockets are functional, but this style also has two extra slip pockets inside. Perfect for valuables —or if you feel like going bag-free. THE DESIGN DETAILS A large box-pleat in the back panel leaves room to move comfortably without stretching out the leather or compromising on a snug fit.

I nST YL E M A RCH 20 1 7

MOISTURISE Leather is like any other skin and needs to be hydrated. When the surface feels dry and stiff, apply a leather conditioner to prevent cracking. Tougher, thicker leathers like cowhide require treatment more often. SPOT-CLEAN If left long enough, dirt and other irritants can penetrate a stain repellent. That’s when you should see a specialist to fix isolated areas.

You can buy a leather jacket at any price, so what makes a four-digit splurge worth it?

THE HARDWARE Quality logo-engraved zips, firmly notched studs and a detachable belt in polished silver won’t ever date.

APPLY A WATER AND STAIN REPELLENT ASAP This will allow you to wipe spills away easily— though do it fast. Spray your jacket once a week if you wear it every other day or more; otherwise, once every one or two months is fine.

Acne Studios leather, $2,350; 02-9360 0294

PROCEED WITH CAUTION Taking your pieces to a drycleaner for a full cleaning might ruin the texture, so don’t count on this quick fix. Your best bet is to always treat leather with care.

In the round of “try to make her comfortable” questions at the beginning of our interview, it’s Bella Heathcote who ends up doing all the disarming. She’s in her living room at home in Los Angeles, and her smiling, make-up free face fills my iPhone screen. Unfazed by the awkward first date-nature of Skyping with a stranger, the actor has just come from the gym and is still in workout clothes. “I probably wear them more than I should—sadly, you can get away with that in LA,” she laughs. Her off-duty outfit suits our conversation—an easy, comfortable, rambling chat that’s punctuated with frequent laughter and even more regular use of the word “mate”—but gives few clues to the leading lady-status she’s made time to talk about: her star turn in Hollywood’s much-hyped mega sequel, Fifty Shades Darker—and dressing up for InStyle’s “completely surreal” cover shoot in Paris. If you can’t quite place her name, here’s A Very Brief History of Bella Heathcote: she had a recurring role on Neighbours (arguably an Australian actor’s rite of passage); was awarded the 2010 Heath Ledger Scholarship (“it was a big deal, and still is to me”); and kissed Johnny Depp in her 2012 breakout role in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows (exciting, yes, but also her job: “no-one is saying to Johnny, ‘who’s a better kisser?’”). And if her face seems familiar you should commit it to memory now—she’s a chameleon on-andoff set. From a brunette beehive and winged eyeliner to a messy blonde bob with bright pink lips, the actor is almost unrecognisable from one role to the next. But it’s the diversity of her performances— as a German filmmaker in the Amazon series, The Man in the High Castle (2016), a model with a dark side in The Neon Demon (2016), and a ghost and governess in Dark Shadows—that proves her capacity to develop and inhabit a character is more than just skin deep. “When I’m looking at roles I’m just looking [for] something that interests me,” she says. “Because I relate to it, or because it’s unlike anything I’ve done before, or just because I find it interesting.”

It was both the role and the opportunity to work with director James Foley that drew Heathcote to the second instalment of the Fifty Shades juggernaut. She plays Leila Williams, a former submissive of central character Christian Grey who can’t accept the end of their relationship and suffers a breakdown. “When I’m digging my way in [to a role] it’s usually through the things I relate to,” she explains. “I kind of related to the idea of someone who is grief-stricken, but hopefully I handle grief slightly better than she does—and breakups in general!” she adds, laughing. Mercifully, working with such intense material, “the vibe on set was pretty light, pretty fun”, she says. “I was nervous going in because everyone had already shot one and I felt like the new kid at school on the first day, but everyone was really welcoming.” Heathcote calls co-star Dakota Johnson “lovely” and leading man Jamie Dornan “hilarious”, and did what most of us do to “try and zone out” at the end of a long day: binge-watched TV. “I can just not leave the house for a couple of days and get really into a show,” she confesses (The OA and The Leftovers are recent favourites). Following the success of Fifty Shades of Grey, it would be natural to feel a certain level of pressure when appearing in the sequel, yet Heathcote is not particularly bothered by the anticipated attention from critics or the press. “I was nervous, to be honest, about the fans,” she says. “I was worried that I’d disappoint them, or not live up to the idea they had in their minds of who she should be.” Our catch-up comes a couple of weeks after the actor modelled for InStyle in an elegant Paris apartment, in town as a guest of Chanel to attend their Metiers d’Art presentation. She recalls the experience with charming enthusiasm: “I remember FaceTiming

M A RCH 20 1 7 I nST YL E

with my dad and telling him I was going to the show, and I was like ‘guess where they’re putting us up?!’ and he said, ‘not the Ritz?!’ and I was like, ‘yeah!’” Without a character to convey, she admits feeling a little uncomfortable posing—“oh, mate, how do you pose in front of a camera?”—but maintains that the shoot felt like a dream. Away from work, and apart from the athleisure look she’s sporting today, Heathcote’s personal style is evolving as she gets older: “I hope it’s changing because it’s been so bad in the past…” Staple labels include APC, Rag & Bone and J Brand, and her daily uniform is “very casual, masculine-leaning. I feel most comfortable in a button-down shirt, jeans and boots.” Heathcote will turn 30 in May—a milestone she says is a relief to reach: “I mean, the early twenties are horrendous—I wish more people had told me that.” Moving to LA at 22 and missing “that safety net of family and friends you’ve grown up with” was both challenging and liberating. “It forces you to go out and meet new people, which I never would have because it doesn’t come easily,” she says. “You really choose your people here.” Her tight-knit chosen family includes Australians Teresa Palmer, Phoebe Tonkin, Ashley Hart and Jess McNamee, a group of antipodean mates who share the same brand of humour and a comforting sense of spontaneity. “When I first moved here, when I was really trying to make friends, there were a couple of American girls I was friendly with and trying to hang out with them was so difficult. It was like ‘let’s get a coffee–oh I can’t, let’s do it two weeks from Thursday but only if we meet on the west side between 11 and 12’,” she laughs. As her career gains momentum, Heathcote tries to resist the urge to “compare and despair”. She and her friends “don’t go there together, which is helpful”, and it makes sense that her relief at turning 30 has much to do with her growing self-confidence. “I still have my insecurities and I’m still a highly anxious person, but it’s nowhere near as bad as when I was in my early twenties. I definitely care less about what most people think, most of the time.” The actor is thoughtful when considering how 30 would look were she still living in Australia. “I feel like a lot of my mates are settling down and having kids, buying houses, and I’m sure I would have been the same if I’d stayed in Melbourne, or hadn’t been in this industry.” She laughs at the irony of craving stability in a notoriously fickle profession–“security, routine, rigidity–all those things acting can’t afford”–and admits that her adopted home across the pond can sometimes feel “like a one-horse town”. A reflective Heathcote says she never really had a five-year plan, and that

I WAS NERVOUS, TO BE HONEST, ABOUT THE FANS. I WAS WORRIED THAT I’D DISAPPOINT THEM, OR NOT LIVE UP TO THE IDEA THEY HAD IN THEIR MINDS OF WHO SHE SHOULD BE” “27 and onwards have been the best years of my life and I feel like they’re just getting better and better”. With her dad in Melbourne and her brother based in London (her mum passed away when she was 12), Heathcote’s home is now wherever she is with her partner, New Zealand writer and director Andrew Dominik: “Typically I feel most homesick when I’m away from my man.” Very obviously in love, she credits their six-and-ahalf year relationship to “him being excellent!” and values Dominik’s opinion most, relying on him for “reassurance that I’m not being crazy, or reassurance that I’ve made the right choice”. Though keen to work with her acclaimed filmmaker boyfriend (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), at this stage collaboration is “a pipe dream”. Settled in LA, she hasn’t made it to Australia since 2013 and misses “the people, my people–I have great friends in Melbourne”, the self-deprecating sense of humour, and brunch at The Galleon cafe in St Kilda. Talking to her dad every couple of weeks helps, as does Skyping with friends, but she can’t see herself moving back anytime soon. “I lived there for 22 years and I feel like, if I’m going to move, I should check somewhere else out.” Wherever she goes, though, it seems the actor carries something of her homeland with her and, throughout her chat with InStyle, Heathcote’s responses often reveal an Australian connection. The last thing that cracked her up was Jess McNamee’s most recent Instagram Story, and the first time she heard the new album by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds “my boyfriend [found me] sitting in a pile of laundry, crying hysterically”. After wrapping work on her most recent film, Professor Marsten & the Wonder Women, with Luke Evans and Rebecca Hall, Heathcote is on holiday until a third season of The Man in the High Castle begins shooting in May. While she’s happy to stick with acting for now (“watching Andrew direct, there’s no part of me that thinks ‘I wanna do that!’ It looks absolutely terrifying”) she isn’t blind to the benefits of one day branching out: “I should create work for myself…be more proactive instead of sitting around being like, ‘gimme a job!’” However as her career unfolds, it can’t be long before Johnny Depp faces the question: “So, what was it like kissing Bella Heathcote?” n

IMITATING LIFE

There was a time when artist George Raftopoulos hated his heritage. “I despised it to be honest,” he says. “All I wanted to do was fit in like everyone else.”At just five years old, the son of the only Greek family in Grenfell (a small town in New South Wales), Raftopoulos soon realised he was different—and not just because of his eleven-letter surname. He recalls a moment when drawing in a “meditative state” at school was misinterpreted as arrogance, and the teacher tore up his artwork in front of the class as punishment. This negative reaction only incited Raftopoulos’s desire to put brush to canvas. Now in his forties, it took some time for the artist to fully appreciate his experience as, he says, “the only wog in the village”, but this journey towards selfacceptance has always fuelled his work as an artist. “It’s about questioning yourself and other people, and not taking things on face value,” he continues. Both figurative and abstract, Raftopoulos’s aesthetic is raw, predominantly autobiographical, and often imbued with a strong sense of irony and humour (“Good Luck Bad Luck Birds Keep Shitting On My Head”, at right, for example). There is also an underlying darkness to Raftopoulos’s art, and it’s the layering of these opposing forces that makes his work so compelling.

At Fashion Week in 2013, three words scrawled across model Ollie Henderson’s T-shirt caught the attention of photographers everywhere: “Suck My Cervix”. It was a raw and “very much unplanned” outburst from someone who was frustrated with what she deemed an “embarrassing” state of affairs in Australia: climate change inaction, the reviews of Medicare, and the potential deregulation of university fees. What began as an impetuous personal reaction to the political landscape escalated quickly, and a year later she had created 100 shirts for friends, with unique messages developed specifically for the wearer: “Sexism Sucks”, “Welcome Refugees, Save Lives” and “Cull Hate Not Sharks” among them. “I wanted to be careful that I wasn’t putting my thoughts on other people, it was very much about empowering the individual to share their own message,” she says. While Henderson was aware of the reputation millennials have for being politically apathetic, she found herself at the forefront of a group who were screaming out to be heard. This realisation led her to create the not-forprofit fashion label, House of Riot. “Politics for a lot of young people can seem dry and inaccessible,” she explains. “I wanted to create a platform where it fits into their lifestyle.” Yet creative pursuits are just one facet of Henderson’s activism: she was invited to speak in front of hundreds at the 2016 Vivid Festival; gave a TEDx talk on the strong historical ties between fashion and protest (the recent debut of Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri’s “We Should All Be Feminists” T-shirt is a high-profile contemporary example); and she is also an advocate for the LGBTIQ community. As her interview with InStyle comes to a close, Henderson casually mentions she’s been accepted into law school. Though the humble admission comes as a surprise, it shouldn’t—this seems like a logical next step for the young activist. “I’ll probably specialise in human rights, let’s be real,” she giggles. “But I think law will just make me a really useful human.” —SOPHIE GOULOPOULOS

hen Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was a fashion-obsessed 15-year-old living in her rural hometown of Devon, England, aka “the middle of nowhere”, she cold-called her way around London looking for someone, anyone, in the industry to give her an internship as part of a work-study program at school. A small modelling agency in Soho said yes, and she promptly spent a week at its offices emptying ashtrays and making photocopies. And although she wasn’t entirely sure what she wanted to do yet—design, yes; styling, maybe—not once did it occur to her that she had what it took to make a career in front of the camera. “I remember the models walking in, and they were like goddesses to me,” says Huntington-Whiteley, now 29 and based in Los Angeles. “They were so stylish and elegant with their beautiful skin and blasé attitude. I just remember being like, ‘Oh my god, these girls are like swans.’” It wasn’t that Huntington-Whiteley was unattractive (though she claims her fair share of awkward-phase afflictions: a layer of baby fat, spotty skin, and overplucked eyebrows); it was simply a matter of how she was raised. “I don’t remember people saying, ‘You’re so pretty,’ or, ‘You’re gorgeous,’” she says of her childhood. “You were praised for getting good grades or winning the race. Being aware of how you look was never encouraged. I feel lucky for that.” One could argue that this foundation—a sense of self-worth and confidence derived from actions over artifice—is crucial to her enduring appeal in a business that doesn’t always go all that deep. Because even when she’s gazing back at you from glossy magazine covers or highprofile ad campaigns (Burberry and Versace, to name two), or walking the Balmain runway in a sparkly minidress, there is something inherently relatable, likable even, about this blonde bombshell with the pillowy lips. It’s a feeling that she’s one of the girls and, above all, nice. “I like to keep things real,” she says. “I certainly don’t strut around my house in lingerie every night with four sets of eyelashes.” Displaying a good amount of savvy, Huntington-Whiteley has found a way to parlay this approachable glamour into a growing business. In addition to modelling and appearing in blockbusters, she serves as the global ambassador for UGG and has a four-year strong line, called Rosie for Autograph, with UK retailer Marks & Spencer. Plus, there’s a capsule collection she designed in collaboration with Californian cool-girl label Paige, which she’s fronted for two years. “Whenever I look to partner with someone, I ask, ‘Do I like this brand? Have I worn it? Do I use it?’” she says. “There has to be that authenticity for me.” Here’s a story: before Huntington-Whiteley got involved with Paige, she was a fan. She’d been wearing the company’s jeans for years when one day, while she was out shopping in London, a woman approached her. It was Paige AdamsGeller, the equally blonde, equally statuesque founder of the line, who just wanted to say hi and thanks. But no sooner had they started a conversation they realised they were, hilariously, dressed nearly identically in Paige jeans and the same Balenciaga leather jacket. “It was one of those unbelievable moments!” says Huntington-Whiteley. “Paige and I have become really close friends and collaborators over the past few years,” she adds. “She’s a woman in business who’s happy to

share and has taken me under her wing in many ways.” Together, the duo have created a wearable line based on items from Huntington-Whiteley’s own wardrobe. Think the perfect linen tee, just-right skinny jeans, and one-shoulder numbers that don’t feel, as she puts it, “red carpet-y”— pieces laced with rock-and-roll sex appeal. “I get inspiration from people like [Vogue Paris editor-in-chief] Emmanuelle Alt and [Spanish stylist] Barbara Martelo. “Women who dress elegantly and feminine but not girlie.” Of course, Huntington-Whiteley herself is the object of many a style crush. Her uniform of skinny trousers, louche blouses, smart jackets, and heels is the stuff of “model off-duty” Pinterest-board legend. But lately, and rather amusingly, she’s emerged as the foremost trendsetter of a timely subgenre: Google her name with the term “airport style” and you get no less than 787,000 results. Hence the photos on these pages, for which Huntington-Whiteley gamely contributed creative direction. “Looking back to the ’60s and ’70s, travel had a real glamour to it because only the rich and famous could afford it,” she says, citing the Rolling Stones’s heyday of cavorting around with Jerry Hall and Anita Pallenberg. Add the fact that Huntington-Whiteley averages about four to six flights a month—some with her ruggedly handsome movie-star fiancé, Jason Statham—and you’ve got paparazzi at every gate. “People probably think I’m overdressed for the airport,” she says, though she’s quick to point out that she doesn’t get any more gussied up for the occasion than she would for a day of meetings or running around. “But that’s just me—a great outfit is my armour. I feel confident and ready to face the world.” Okay, but the woman is no dummy. Once the cabin door is safely sealed from prying eyes and camera lenses, she changes in the bathroom. Off goes the supermodel get-up and out come the cashmere pants, T-shirt, and slippers. And for the record, the loo in first class is just as small and cramped as in economy. “I’m usually falling over and stuck between the walls,” she says. Another pro tip that’s worth considering: she always brings an extra shirt in case of midair spills. To be sure, in-flight Rosie—girl-on-the-go Rosie, never-in-one-placefor-a-long-time Rosie—is a mode Huntington-Whiteley knows all too well. Lately, though, as she moves into her thirties, she’s been wondering what it would be like to be less nomadic. “I sometimes feel like the last 13 years were spent in the air,” she says, adding that having her feet planted on more solid ground would allow her to cement meaningful new friendships and relationships, as well as tend to existing ones. “I look forward to starting a family,” she says, describing her bond with Statham as the “most cherished and sacred thing in my life”. She’d also like to see her two younger siblings, Florence and Toby, more often, as well as her parents. “The greatest gift they ever gave me was the freedom to go out and explore when I was young,” she says. “Now that I’m getting older, I feel more keen to spend time with them.” Whatever the future holds, Huntington-Whiteley isn’t going to wait for it to come to her. “I’ve always had a clear idea of what I wanted to achieve next,” she says, sounding not far from the teen who hustled her way to London. “I’m very driven, and I visualise what I want for my life.” And if that means fewer frequent-flyer miles, we’ll just have to get our airport-style inspo from somewhere else. n

It’s an easy way to dial up the drama on a simple hairstyle— cases in point: glittering clips spotted at Marchesa; Alice bands at Mary Katrantzou; and the kitsch baubles seen at Fendi. How to wear it right? “Clean, straightened sections are key,” says Violet Sainsbury, Moroccanoil’s international education manager for Asia Pacific, as they create the perfect base to show off a jewelled adornment—like Jennifer Behr’s gold-plated metal and crystal hairpin ($410; at desordrestore.com).

ACE THE LOOK On damp strands, apply Matrix Style Link Mess Maker Salt Infused Spray ($23.95; 1300 651 991) “through the roots and lightly over the mid-lengths and ends”, says Grisillo. Blast with a hairdryer away from your face until almost dry, then use a curling wand to define the natural texture. “Working in three-inch sections, wrap hair once around the wand to create bends, preventing it from looking too pretty or over-styled,” he recommends.

ALEXANDER WANG

The shipwrecked tresses seen at Alexander Wang looked fresh from the sands of Bondi, and proved that beach waves are an ever-trending style. “I love the distressed feel—and that it works on all hair types,” says hairstylist Richi Grisillo.

TRY A SIDE PART

BOTTEGA VENETA

Not only is this side-swept style an elegant alternative to the traditional centre parting, it can also “create the illusion of symmetry” by balancing your features, according to hairstylist Anthony Nader. Plus, it gives the appearance of increased volume at the roots, as seen at Bottega Veneta.

ACE THE LOOK Start with a shine-enhancing shampoo and conditioner, then blow-dry. For wavy hair, Nader suggests using a straightening iron, try the Bioionic Onepass 1.5inch Iron ($299; bioionic.com), to smooth out any kinks. Next, rake a small dollop of light-hold gel from root-to-tip, then use a tail comb to create a straight, deep side part. With the diffuser on your dryer, apply heat by “waving it in circular movements for around one minute, which will set the shape”, he says.

CREATE EFFORTLESS, LIVED-IN WAVES For the Rag & Bone runway show, Orlando Pita, Tresemmé hair director for New York Fashion Week, wanted locks to look like “it was the day after you have been out in a club” and “like a hairdresser hasn’t even been here”. Ideal for both short and longer lengths, this look requires little effort but plenty of attitude.

ACE THE LOOK Begin by washing your hair with Tresemmé BeautyFull Pre-Wash Conditioner to

smooth strands, followed by the Volume Shampoo ($11 each; 1800 061 027), to add volume, minus any weight. While the hair is still damp, work a handful of Tresemmé Beauty-Full Volume Mousse ($8; 1800 061 027) through the lengths, then spritz with sea-salt spray, “to get a little wrinkle in [the hair]”, says Pita. To finish, roughly blow-dry, cupping your hands around the ends so the lengths sit in an S-shape to further enhance the wave.

While a low ponytail may take you back to the playground, the slightest shift gives it a grown-up finish—to the side à la Chanel, by moving the part as at Prada, or “with a little texture”, says Redken’s global creative director Guido Palau, who created the minimalist tails at Hugo Boss.

Don’t be too concerned with making it look perfect, says Palau. “It should be a little undone.”

SKIP A SOAK

UPGRADE YOUR POLISH

Are your fingertips and toes parked firmly in Camp Gel? Consider experimenting with at-home, gel-like lacquers, which can provide “long wear without UV curing or a lengthy removal process”, says manicurist and nail expert Julie Kandalec. We love Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, a two-step process that involves applying a gel colour followed by top coat, and promises up to two weeks without chipping. Better still, it can be easily removed at home with acetone-free nail polish remover. Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Wine Stock, Snowglow and Currant-ly Shopping, $24.95 each, with Miracle Gel Top Coat; 1800 812 663

GET ELEVATED

Flip those sandals in favour of open-toe platform heels. “When you walk in flats, your feet are not getting the right support, and they’re in closer contact with the ground, which allows dirt and cracks to appear on your heels,” says podiatrist Dr Johanna Youner. Hydrate daily to ward off chalky calluses, then shop for the perfect pair of platforms that go with everything.

Manicare Disposable Mascara Brushes, $10 (pack of 20); manicare.com.au

LIGHTEN UP

Keep unpolished nails looking neat by cleansing the surfaces and then applying a teeth whitener. Whether it’s the gritty combination of a spoolie brush and whitening toothpaste, or a mix of baking soda and water, “the ingredients that work on teeth can make yellowed, discoloured nails look brighter”, says dermatologist Dr Mona Gohara. Apply once a week for best results.

We get the allure of a scented foot bath when you’re having a pedicure, but we also know that steeping your toes in a bowl of water all but guarantees your polish will chip in a few days. “The water expands the nail plate,” says manicurist Elle Gerstein. “When the polish finally dries, the nail contracts, causing the colour to chip.” After soaking, dry immediately then use a spoolie brush and cleanser to clear the nail surface, which will help the polish adhere better.

PUT ON A GLOSS

Imagine a museum-worthy painting; now picture it hanging in a cracked and rusted frame. It suddenly doesn’t look so pristine— and craggy cuticles have the same effect on painted nails. Stash a brush-tipped pen, packed with moisturising oils like argan, marula or sunflower, in your cosmetic case. Every day, sweep over the surrounding skin to keep it supple and hydrated. Ciaté London Beautiful Cuticles, $23; at mecca.com.au

COAT TH E TI PS

Just like dry shampoo can buy you a few days between blow-dries, this trick can help milk more from your paint job: once your colour is set—be it gel polish or traditional lacquer—run the brush of your top coat over the surfaces, concentrating on the edges. “It protects against wear and chipping,” says Gerstein. As days pass, gently buff away jagged edges and then reseal with top coat. Sephora Collection Mini 4-step Buffer, $6; sephora.com.au. Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat, $15.95; 1800 025 488

Beauty THE LIGHT TOUCH

Unfortunately, sheer lacquers are the most difficult to get right, according to Nicole Stubbs from Tribe Natural Beauty in Sydney. “Keep your polish brush flat and as ‘light’ as possible—applying too much pressure can lead to streaking,” the nail expert explains. “I often use up to three coats with sheer shades, waiting up to two minutes for drying between each coat.”

FILE SHARP CORNERS

No matter how much you might prefer a squared-off nail shape, this popular style can contribute to lifting and chipping. “It’s always best to soften sharp corners slightly to avoid this,” says Stubbs. “Remember to also reapply a top coat three days post-manicure to help maintain shine.”

MIND THE CRACKS

You don’t think Manolo Blahnik designed slingbacks to show off scaly heels, do you? After a pedicure, help feet stay smooth with a regular hit of acid—urea, glycolic or lactic acid, that is (like QV Feet Heel Balm, $17.30; 1800 033 706). Every second night, slather on one of these exfoliating ingredients, “which continues to break down calluses and trap moisture so feet remain soft”, says dermatologist Dr Whitney Bowe. On off-nights, alternate with a rich balm, like this one from Alpha Keri. Alpha Keri Skin Moisture Therapy Balm, $9; 1800 033 289

OPENING CEREMONY

RESPECT THE DRYING TIME

After a mani or pedi, you need to stay put at the salon for at least 20 minutes before hightailing it out of there, or running your hands through your hair. When it comes to your feet, “avoid closed-toe shoes for up to 12 hours”, says nail expert Sarah Gibson Tuttle. If you’re in a hurry, try quickdry nail drops, like these from Revitanail, which speed up surface drying so you can step out faster. Revitanail Instant Dry Drops, $14.95; 1800 651 146

TURN NICKS INTO NAIL ART

Put down the cotton balls: you don’t have to wipe off all of your nail colour just because you stubbed a toe or bumped a fingernail—just embrace the ever-popular colour-block trend. Pick up a nail art brush and paint a square or stripe over the chips, using a contrasting shade as your base for optimum pop. If dexterity isn’t your strong suit, sweep on a glitter top coat—the particles stick to nails and mask imperfections.

GO BACK TO FIRST BASE

You’ll never get mileage out of your nail colour if you just slap on a coat of polish, says manicurist Deborah Lippmann, who has worked with everyone from Mariah Carey to Lupita Nyong’o. To nix oils, use a nail cleanser or primer, followed by a long-wearing base coat to ensure your polish will be around for the long haul. Sally Hansen Big Primer Base Coat, $12.95; 1800 812 663

Holistic Skin Expert SECRETS OF A

Renowned for creating luminous complexions, and responsible for Megan Gale’s enviable glow, beauty guru Jocelyn Petroni shares her advice on achieving— and maintaining—a healthy radiance SAND IS THE ULTIMATE BODY SCRUB “As children,

my sisters and I would sit by the ocean and scrub each other’s backs with natural sand—I’m yet to find a scrub that sloughs away dry, dead skin as thoroughly,” says Petroni. Exfoliating increases circulation, which feeds the skin oxygen-rich blood and increases lymphatic drainage for detoxification, and even clears congestion.

ALWAYS DOUBLE CLEANSE A ritual she follows during her popular Signature Facial (prices start from $280; jocelynpetroni.com), Petroni recommends double cleansing, first with a creamy formula to remove make-up or pollutants, followed by a foaming option to deeply clean your pores. “I’m a huge advocate for double cleansing, morning and night,” she says. “Thoroughly cleansed skin means there is less chance of blemishes occurring, and it also prepares a perfect base for active and results-driven eye creams, serums and moisturisers to penetrate the skin and do their job more effectively.” TOOTHPASTE REALLY DOES DRY OUT BLEMISHES

The combination of baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and alcohol in toothpaste will dry out the spot and kill any bacteria, explains Petroni. While she recommends the best thing to use on blemishes is a topical spot remover, such as Ultraceuticals Ultra Clear Spot Treatment ($37; ultraceuticals.com), toothpaste is an alternative in a pinch. MEDITATION CREATES POSITIVE ENERGY THAT ENRICHES HER TREATMENTS

Petroni has practised Tibetan Buddhism for more than nine years, and even meditates during her facials. “I pay close attention to my client’s skin during a thorough consultation and detailed work such as extractions, but throughout any facials I perform, I meditate,” she says. “It deepens my connection with my customers and enriches their salon experience. The sharing of positive energy makes it more than just a beauty treatment, elevating it to a nurturing and rejuvenating treatment for both the skin and the soul.”

Petroni began her training in 2000, working in a salon while she was still studying. She now has a flagship salon in Sydney’s Woollahra, and in 2016 celebrated 10 years of the Jocelyn Petroni brand

CLEANSE THOROUGHLY A hard-working cleanser is the first step in any skincare regimen, and “this brightening formula contains fruit acids that dissolve dry skin cells that would otherwise make the skin’s surface dull and dehydrated”, says Petroni.

STEPS TO GET YOUR SKIN GLOWING NOW

3

BOOST HYDRATION Petroni’s trick is to “apply a few drops of light-textured oil to the skin before using a moisturiser, which acts as a carrier to draw the moisturiser into the deepest layers of the skin for the ultimate nourishment and hydration”.

SMOOTH ON A SERUM “This makes skin cells grow and shed at an all-over rate,” says Petroni. “By evenly distributing this process it flushes out the skin, smoothing texture and fading pigment to give your complexion a beautiful glow.”

4

FINISH WITH MOISTURISER Petroni recommends a silky cream-to-oil formula, applied to both the face and neck, for soft and dewy skin. A favourite for its regenerative and hydrating benefits, this Chanel option won’t leave a greasy residue.

HOW TO:

PAMPER YOURSELF AT HOME

It can be tricky to find the time for beauty appointments, but Petroni believes giving back to yourself—and your skin—is vital. Here, she explains how to re-create the TLC of a salon in the comfort of your own CREATE AMBIENCE “Even though I spend the majority of my time in the salon, I still love to look after my skin when I’m not working,” says Petroni. That feeling of total relaxation you have when you enter a beauty salon can be replicated at home—Petroni recommends selecting some soothing music, lighting a fragrant candle and, most importantly, making an effort to relax and de-stress.

TRY AN AT-HOME FACIAL “While I recommend an in-salon facial every six weeks—or every three months at a minimum—I like to give myself a facial at home once a week,” says Petroni. “Allow your skin to steam in the shower or bath, complete a double cleanse, then follow with a deep exfoliation. Try to use a granular scrub that contains fruit enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells and break down any sebum blocked in the pores.”

USE A FACE MASK “When it comes to choosing the right mask for your skin type, following a few simple rules will help you find one that will provide the best results,” says Petroni. “If your skin is oily or prone to breakouts, opt for a clay-based mask. For skin that is dry or dehydrated, choose a formula that is rich and moisturising. And if you wear the mask in the bath, the steam will help infuse the mask into your skin.”

ore is definitely more in the wild, wonderful and fantastically chic Tata Naka universe. The brand’s sister act, Tamara and Natasha Surguladze, share a maximalist love of print and colour that’s evident both in their fashion label (launched after graduating from Central St Martins in 2000), and the West London house they’ve just finished furnishing. Originally from Georgia, the pair have lived together on the same street since 1996, but spread their creative wings—and doubled their real estate footprint—by buying their neighbour’s house and demolishing both buildings to create one home. Filled with a fantasia of pop furniture classics, Memphis treasures, Murano glass chandeliers and an array of their own collaborative projects—from wallpaper to plush stools—the sisters share the decorative space with their dogs, Bibi and Chili. Knocking down two houses to build one may not seem the easiest or most obvious path to a larger home. Yet in London, as in many of the world’s busiest capitals, space is a luxury and properties that afford it are limited. Keen to remain in their Chelsea neighbourhood, the sisters spent years searching for a suitable space before the house next door came up for sale, and they didn’t hesitate in snapping it up. Then came the next obstacle: planning permission. Finally, three years after the purchase, construction on their dream home began, and plans for its interior design were hatched. Though the sisters’ aesthetic could easily slip into over-the-top territory, the home’s classical architectural bones—large picture windows, high ceilings and polished parquetry floors—form an elegant backdrop to the unique decor. Amid an often dizzying mix of eras, textures, colours and prints, cohesion is achieved by combining pieces that share a common feature. Case in point: a vintage pineapple motif side table and contemporary oversized brass planter stand sentinel outside doors leading from the formal living room to the study, the otherwise opposing elements unified by their warm metallic finish. In the same space, bentwood frames of two Giorgetti armchairs marry with the polished wooden floors beneath them, and accent cushions feature printed portraits that are mirrored by an idiosyncratic ceramic vase modelled in the form of a woman’s head. As well as living and working together, the sisters share a love of entertaining—one of the major reasons for upscaling their space.

“We love throwing dinner parties,” says Natasha. In fact, the pair’s perfect day at home revolves around: “…cooking, setting the table, putting a playlist together—then we have a long, fun dinner party.” To indulge their inner hostess, they created a light-filled, open-plan kitchen and dining room, with a bespoke table at its centre–a slab of Kauri wood somehow held aloft by curvy Murano glass legs. Again, the success of the space has much to do with the pair’s confident combination of finishes and furniture. A blend of traditional and contemporary—from decorative plaster cornices and a checkerboard floor that recall the grandeur of Victorian times, to wooden stools carved in the likeness of an arm—the room’s black and white palette, warmed with timber tones, helps bring the scheme together. While it may be tricky to put a name to the twin designers’ interior style—Hollywood Regency? Bohemian?—there are certain elements that recur throughout the bright abode. Unique and elaborate light fittings star in most rooms: a custom-created Murano glass masterpiece hangs above the dining table and one of the bedrooms features a white

ceramic chandelier by Llardó. A charming example of the designers’ sense of fun, decorative bird figures and models of the human form—a vintage lamp with a ceramic eagle base, or a Fornasetti vase that features a face and watches over the dinner table—pop up frequently and ensure no space is taken too seriously. Alongside its very personal touches, the ambitious project also has strong links to the sisters’ fashion work—a couple of years ago Tata Naka incorporated wallpaper and Persian rug-inspired prints into dresses and separates–and many of the most striking elements of the house were custom-designed and made by the pair. Whether furniture—like the black wardrobe doors decorated with Grecian-inspired figures—or bright floral accent fabrics in the two living rooms, there is an undeniable connection between their personal and professional creativity. Now settled in their beloved London neighbourhood, and surrounded by the things that inspire them most, Tamara and Natasha no longer need to imagine their “happy place”—they’ve succeeded in creating it. —MARK C. O’FLAHERTY AND FAITH CAMPBELL

CAMERON AVERY

Q&A

FILM BUFFS

Cameron Avery (of Tame Impala and The Growl fame) releases a tender debut solo album, Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams, with sweeping arrangements and lyrics that touch on heartbreak. Why did you write this album?

“It was initially a second The Growl record, but then it evolved into something much different. It was definitely a catharsis thing for me.” Were you inspired by any pieces of music?

“I’ve always listened to jazz, big band, that kind of stuff. As I got older, I started watching French films, so [the album is] really humouring things that I’ve always really loved. You never think about that when you’re a teenager, like, ‘I’m going to make a crooner album.’ ” It has a very mature sound to it.

“I have grown up a lot. I used to love that type of music before I got into rock’n’roll, so it came back to admitting that that’s what I wanted to play.” “The Cry Of Captain Hollywood” is an instrumental. What’s it about? “It could be about someone who’s crying, or it

could be, like, Tarzan. My manager used to call me Captain Hollywood.” Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams is out Mar 10 on ANTI and Spinning Top

JASPER JONES Acclaimed filmmaker Rachel Perkins directs Jasper Jones (top), the adaptation of one of Australia’s most beloved novels, by Craig Silvey. Delving into themes of fear, innocence and friendship, the story follows two boys, Charlie Bucktin and Jasper Jones, in a beautifully told coming-of-age tale (in cinemas Mar 2). If you want suspense...

If you’re a sucker for a sequel...

Jessica Chastain is Miss Sloane (above left), a Washington, D.C. gun-control lobbyist who discovers winning may come at too high a cost when going head-to-head with a powerful opponent (in cinemas Mar 2).

The follow-up to Danny Boyle’s cult ’90s hit,T2 Trainspotting (above right) picks up 20 years after the first film, and reunites Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) with Spud (Ewen Bremner) (in cinemas Feb 23).

The thing I love the most about being back in Australia… “Spending time with family and friends.” My favourite places to visit while I’m in Sydney… “I love going to the Wendy Whiteley gardens over by Luna Park; Parsley Bay is a great place to have a swim in the harbour; and catching the ferry to Taronga Zoo is really fun, especially with a baby.” But I love New York because… “I still find the adrenaline of the place really inspiring and exciting.” I appreciate being an Australian in Hollywood… “Because we tend to be more down to earth and realistic about things, and I think that can help.” If I wasn’t an actor, I’d be… “In a lot of trouble!” My style is… “Fairly relaxed. Day-to-day I’m usually in jeans and T-shirts, and then in summer, sandals and a dress.
