Q U I N T E S S E N T I A L

S T Y L E

“This hit, that ice cold, Michelle Pfeiffer, that white gold...” “I swear she’s destined for the screen, closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you’ve ever seen, oh...” (Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” featuring Bruno Mars, and “Riptide” by Vance Joy, respectively). Some say she’s currently experiencing a comeback, but I ask—with so many blockbuster films under her belt, not to mention shout-outs in two recent mega-hit songs, did she ever really leave? The well-known, well-loved, and ever-heralded actress has been nominated for three Academy Awards, an Emmy, and she won a Golden Globe for her performance as an escort-turnedprofessional-lounge-singer in The Fabulous Baker Boys. She captivated us as the waify, smooth dancing Elvira Hancock in Scarface, mesmerized us as a psychotic, feline femme fatale in Batman Returns, and restored our faith in love as an architect, divorced single mom and prospective love interest of George Clooney in One Fine Day. However, the most significant role she ever played for me was coolest girl in school Stephanie Zanoni in the cult teen classic Grease II. I was seven going on 17 when I convinced my two preteen cousins to let me watch it with them on our family’s sacred Betamax. After that, I was hooked. I would put on my pink snow jacket and dance around the house belting out “Cool Rider” at the top of my lungs for anyone who would listen (a routine I took with me to Dartmouth and beyond; I can still recite every word). We are thrilled to welcome back Elizabeth Quinn Brown, who delivers “Living Legend” Michelle Pfeiffer with grace and appreciation. (Lizzie, it’s great to work with you again!) This issue also heralds another legendary lady—multi-talented comedian, actress, writer, producer, and television host Joan Rivers. Although Rivers passed away in 2014, her memory lives on in Joan Rivers Confidential (Abrams), compiled by her daughter, Melissa Rivers, and PR guru Scott Currie, a dear friend of the late comedian. Melissa and Scott sifted through Rivers’ multitude of memorabilia, and the result is a sensational coffee table book for readers of all generations to enjoy. Another Winter Q highlight comes from returning contributor Jamie Korey, who, during an annual trip to London to attend the Royal Ascot, discovered her old English friend, Rich Mallett, over cozy drinks in Mayfair. She knew that she had met the love of her life! Korey is now Jamie Korey Mallett, and recounts the magical tale of meeting Rich, moving to London, and planning their four-day wedding extravaganza, which began at Korey’s family’s estate in the mountain town of Ain Saade, Lebanon, overlooking downtown Beirut and the Mediterranean Sea. Also don’t miss associate editor Brooke Kelly’s piece on AERIN, founded by the late Estée Lauder’s equally talented granddaughter, Aerin Lauder. Aerin’s grandmother served as a huge inspiration for the current Lauder’s namesake luxury lifestyle brand, and is said to have inspired Aerin about “all things beautiful.” Senior editor Annie Loynd brings the Fall 2018 runways to life with an array of dazzling spring trends, including ’80s Opulence, Pop Art, and Lovely Lavender. And deputy editor Daniel Cappello heralds the lovely lady behind the eponymous House of Herrera, Carolina Herrera, who recently announced that she is taking on the role of global brand ambassador, while passing the Counterclockwise from top right: Carolina Herrera in 1968; Chloé creative director reins to acclaimed American fashion designer Nile Minaudière; AERIN Tuberose Le Jour Parfum; Aerin Lauder of Wes Gordon. With that in mind, Mrs. Herrera has introduced AERIN; Scott Currie and Joan Rivers; Proenza Schouler shearling coat; the House Collection—an assemblage of hallmark pieces that are Tom Ford Soleil Eye and Cheek Palette; Michelle Pfeiffer at her emblematic of effortless, everyday wear. “I think all of these pieces Hollywood Star Walk of Fame ceremony in 2007; Hestia Jewels are a mix of the understated and the extravagant, the romantic Romance Diamond Ring in 18-kt. gold, pink quartz, and diamonds; and the practical,” says Herrera. “You have everything in this Queen Elizabeth II with John Warren and jockey Kieran Shoemark collection. There is a sophistication but it also has to be fun. You during Ladies Day at the Royal Ascot London, 2017; J.McLaughlin cannot be so serious about fashion.” u Ace aviator sunglasses in gold and leopard.

Herrera Debuts The House Collection Though change may be afoot at the House of Herrera, one thing is certain never to waver: the classic beauty for which the fashion line has become synonymous. Recently, Carolina Herrera, the founder and designer of her namesake brand, announced she is taking on the role of Global Brand Ambassador while passing the Creative Director reins to the acclaimed American fashion designer Wes Gordon. As everyone knows, Mrs. Herrera has been her brandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest ambassador from the day she first launched her fashion collection almost 40 years ago. Today, the label Carolina Herrera New York stands for luxury, quality, and heritage; it exudes integrity, elegance, and a cosmopolitan spirit, much like Mrs. Herrera herself.

designer has long created impeccably crafted, fashion-forward collections for women with a discerning eye who want something special and luxurious for everyday life. Over the course of her impressive 35-year career, Mrs. Herrera’s designs have reflected this notion of effortless elegance. In a time where trends come and go, the House of Herrera is focused on season-less dressing and the art of dressing for oneself. With that in mind, Mrs. Herrera has introduced the House Collection—an assemblage of her hallmark pieces that are emblematic of effortless, everyday wear.

Kouka Denis was a ’60s model who served as a muse to Yves Saint Laurent during his reign at Dior and, later, at his eponymous label. Her iconic French-girl aesthetic, highlighted by clean lines and rich neutrals, never goes out of style. This chic wrap worn by Denis inspired our selection of this season’s structured trenches, posh pea coats, and cozy wraps in a range of natural hues with textural fur accents.

She captivated with her flaming red locks, distinguished cheekbones, and natural poise in front of the camera, eventually earning herself a then-unprecedented six-figure salary. Here she is seen propping up her elegant shades during a photo shoot for Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bazaar in December 1958.

Monica Vitti wooed the world in the 1960s with her starring roles in a number of films by the acclaimed Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni. Antonioniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion pictures were blackand-white dramas that challenged the long-established approach to storytelling. Vittiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on-screen costumes complemented the mood of the films; she was often seen with voluminous hair, black mini dresses, sunglasses, and feminine suits, and her approach to fashion off-screen was similar. In this photograph, Vitti is seen sporting a pair of edgy boots on the set of Modesty Blaise, where she played the role of the fictional spy who inspired the movie.

Françoise Hardy, the French singer and songwriter, has a sense of style that’s seemingly practical and effortless—yet irrefutably chic. She was often spotted in timeless classics, and was known for wearing trench coats and for rocking windblown hair. Though she liked to keep it simple, Hardy knew the value of a bold statement piece, like a noticeable pair of sunglasses. We like to think these understated yet alluring staples will get you from place to place this season with an unfussy yet stylish swagger.

This page: Michelle Pfeiffer and Al Pacino star in Scarface, 1983. > Opposite page: A close-up of Michelle Pfeiffer in 1979.

Michelle Pfeiffer has almost unbelievable features: her aqua-colored eyes are framed in a face that is, at once, familiar and exotic. Equally unbelievable (to many eyes), is her career. Since the 1980s, she has starred in almost 50 films— from awarded dramas to musicals. Michelle Marie Pfeiffer was born in Santa Ana, California, on April 29, 1958. She was one of four children with a brother and two sisters (who would also become actresses). She has, in an interview with this column’s Liz Smith, discussed her earliest memories: “I remember being dirty, barefoot, with stringy hair, running around, nobody knowing where I was half the time…I had rabbits that I loved, but I don’t remember having a lot of friends.” She would mature—but

she would continue to be elusive in character (even at 60). She was an unenthusiastic student. She attended Fountain Valley High School in Fountain Valley, California, and Golden West College in Huntington Beach, California (where she became an Alpha Delta Pi). But she, soon, abandoned academics. In 1978, she was crowned Miss Orange County and proceeded to the Miss California contest—which would act as an introduction to film/TV executives. The attractive blonde started her career in TV shows, debuting on the second season of Fantasy Island (1978) with the words: “Who is he, Naomi?” She appeared in Delta House (1979) and B.A.D. Cats (1980) while residing with breatharians, who believe that one doesn’t have to consume nutrients

Thereafter Pfeiffer decided to center her attention on her husband and their children, but nevetheless starred in a nuber of films including: One Fine Day (1996) with George Clooney; A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1999) with Rupert Everett, Calista Flockhart, Kevin Kline, and Stanley Tucci; and I Am Sam (2001) with Dakota Fanning and Sean Penn. After taking a break from the business in 2012, she has now returned to the screen with ambition and dedication. In 2017, she re-debuted in Mother!

(Pfeiffer had an affair with Malkovich, who was married to actress Glenne Headly.) The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989)—with Beau and Jeff Bridges as jazz performers in Seattle—was another achievement. The accolades included a best actress Golden Globe award, as well as praise from Roger Ebert: “This is one of the movies they will use as a document, years from now, when they begin to trace the steps by which Pfeiffer became a great star [...] This is the movie of her flowering—not just as a beautiful woman, but as an actress with the ability to make you care about her, to make you feel what she feels.” Then, she was one of her most memorable (if not one of her most serious) characters as she became Catwoman in Tim Bur-

The interiors throughout the property, designed by Sybille de Margerie, are decorated with accents of cashmere, fur, leather, and polished brass and steel that complement the homey Alpine feel of the Maison. The intricacy of these delicate materials reflects Cheval Blanc’s renowned vision of hospitality: made to measure. WINTER 2018/

With only 36 guest rooms, the Maison serves as an inviting haven with a relaxing ambience and the most wholesome customer service. Each room has a remarkable bathroom with chromotherapy hammam showers and separate bathtubs, and is decorated with a curated and unique art collection. Those staying in suites will find spacious living rooms and terraces with sprawling mountain views. For a family that wants a more secluded experience, the resort offers the three-bedroom Chalet that was entirely renovated in 2014, and the four-bedroom penthouse apartment with its own dining room, fitness area, and direct private access to the slopes. For ultimate relaxation outside of the rooms, the Cheval Blanc Spa has partnered with Guerlain to produce cutting-edge treatments and massages to tackle needs generated by cold temperatures and high altitudes. One of the spa’s newest is the Extreme Altitude Treatment, an intense and powerful ritual for the face and body. The face is treated for improved com-

plexion, and the body engages in toning movements to help strengthen muscles and release built-up tension. The use of hot stones and cold bubbles throughout gives customers an invigorating and peaceful experience. Aside from spa treatments, guests can enjoy a swim in the infinity-edge pool or a revitalizing dip in the ice water plunge pool. Not far from the spa is the Le 1947 restaurant, which was awarded a third Michelin star last year with Yannick Alléno at its helm. With seating for just 22, the space was designed to allow the most careful attention to detail, which creates an unforgettable dining experience. While there is seemingly little reason to venture outside the hotel, Cheval Blanc offers new experiences beyond the slopes with each new season. This year’s notable adventures include a series of couples activities to enjoy in the romantic atmosphere of Courchevel. Before hitting the slopes early morning, lovers can embark on a sensational hot air balloon journey to watch the sun rise over the mountains while wrapped in cashmere throws and indulge in a gourmet breakfast. If you’re not an early riser, there’s an option to be greeted by sled dogs at the Maison’s Ski Service after skiing. Couples ride through nature and ultimately arrive at a traditional igloo for pre-dinner Champagne. With high season running through April, don’t miss your chance to visit this jewel in the French Alps. For both skiers and non-skiers, the hotel’s location near the shops and the slopes—along with its stellar comfort, service, and amenities—secures its exclusive list of regular clientele. —BK

Q U I N T E S S E N T I A L

For winter-weary Northeasterners, there are plenty of fairly accessible options for a sun-tickled trip—the Caribbean, the Mexican coast, or the continental shores of Miami. But for a true escape, there’s no denying the magic of Maui. To be sure, the Hawaiian Islands are not just another beach destination; each of these volcanic-pitched parcels of paradise has a distinct aura all its own: a magnetism that has to be experienced to be believed. And there’s no better perch to take in the treasures of Maui than from an ocean-facing balcony at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. Long a haven for the L.A. elite and discerning travelers from around the world (don’t be surprised if you find yourself working out next to Arnold Schwarzenegger in the fitness center, or sipping a hand-crafted house cocktail poolside with Jessica Alba in the neighboring cabana), this Four Seasons property has recently undergone an extensive renovation of the rooms, keeping all the expected touches of luxury with a more human-centered

design (picture larger rooms with streamlined furniture and dressers moved into a bathroom nook) combined with a true sense of space, including new contemporary artwork introduced by the resort’s fine-art curator, Julie Cline. Speaking of art work, the resort houses an impressive collection of original Hawaiian works throughout the grounds, making it a museum-like destination in itself, down to the self-guided audio tours available from the concierge. A revolving artists’ showcase in the open-air public spaces features a rotation of some of the island’s most notable artists and artisans who are on hand for daily meet-the-artist experiences (and a chance to score an original painting, woven basket, or wood sculpture).

Four Seasons Resort Maui is the only resort of its caliber on the island without a daily resort fee, and the activities—plentiful even for the most adventurous—are enough to keep you on-site at no cost, from footballs to Frisbees, croquet courses to beach volleyball, tennis matches to daily fitness classes. It’s also worth splurging on other activities, from horseback riding to scenic waterfall hikes. Head to Wailea Golf Club for championship courses with the most incredible views. Blue Hawaiian Helicopters can whisk you around the island for stunning aerial tours. There’s something to be said for not leaving, too: seclude yourself in a poolside cabana decorated by fashion house Missoni, or arrange for a private dinner under the stars one night, with one of the most staggering views the Central Pacific has to offer. No two days—and no two weeks—are alike at Four Seasons Resort Maui. The staff, from across the property’s three top-tier restaurants to specialized practitioners of their craft, have rolled out a weekly calendar of events for a nominal fee. Indulge in a “glassology” course led by resort manager Martin Dell, who will expertly guide you through the history of Riedel wine glasses and how they came to achieve their shapes: in order to enhance their intended wines’ distinctive characteristics (you’ll never drink Chardonnay from a narrow glass again). Team up with renowned art photographer Daniel Sullivan, who will lead you on an off-the-beaten-path tour to capture frameable sunset snaps. Perhaps above all else, it is the people who make the difference here. At Four Seasons Resort Maui, the experience teams live by the mantra that every guest request is answered with a “yes.” They have been known to move mountains—or volcanoes—to

make guests’ dreams come true, from styling and stocking your in-room closet with new fashions to scouring the island’s every altitude for rare flowers. It’s easy to understand why this resort has earned the Mobil Five Star and AAA Five Diamond accolades. On top of snorkeling or canoeing in crystal-clear waters, trekking through the enchanting bamboo forest, strolling along pristine beaches, or unwinding to the sound of the surf with a massage in a thatched beachside hut, Shermaine Rodrigues, the in-house guest experience manager, is forever pushing the envelope of what makes a vacation exceptional. She has ushered in a remarkably imaginative and personalized series of “Unforgettable Experiences,” a collection of over-the-top, out-of-thebox Maui activities that are meant as bucket-list adventures. Rodrigues and her team can carry you away by private charter to exclusive farms and estates, where you’ll find yourself foraging natural ingredients that will then be prepared before you by a private team of chefs—or can transport you by private chopper to the famous Bolton Estate, home to the award-winning Kona Coffee & Tea Company, where serious coffee aficionados can indulge in an authentic farm-to-cup experience. Of course, these are no ordinary day trips—they are journeys that will bring you to soaring vantage points to see volcanic lava flows, the majestic Hamakua coast, and Waipio Valley, which boasts 2,000-foot sea cliffs and 1,200-foot waterfalls. Still, if your budget doesn’t allow for this exceptional taste of the big life, one taste alone will make your visit here worth it: the Hawaiian Poke flatbread—a heavenly thin-crust pizza of shoyu-marinated ahi, kimchee aioli, jalapeño, vegetable slaw, and sesame. Oh, and don’t forget the Mai Tai or that rolling ocean view. —DC

Scott Currie: When I was helping you pack up the apartment, I saw that there were some interesting things that had been saved over the years. Not that I was snooping—God knows the woman couldn’t keep a secret—but I thought, let’s see what else we can find. I had no idea how much your mother kept! Melissa Rivers: Well, you did me such a service by even attempting to organize all of my mother’s work and personal things. Who knew that a book was going to come out of your type-A organizational neuroses? SC: Give a Virgo a task and this is what you get. There were fifty-five scrapbooks alone, and that was just the tip of the iceberg. I can’t tell you how many boxes were in storage. It was intimidating, and they had no air conditioning there and it was a hot house. We started this book in August—I went down a dress size unpacking those boxes. MR: My father was a fastidious record keeper, so that’s why we have everything from day one. I don’t think I ever realized that other than her jokes, my mother and father were such guardians of her artifacts. SC: I felt like I was finding mini time capsules as I went along. The Tonight Show archives were in two separate boxes: from the 1960s to 1979 and 1979 to 1986. They were packed in bubble

A true New Yorker from the start, Joan Molinsky was born in Brooklyn on June 8, 1933 to Russian-immigrant parents, Dr. Meyer and Beatrice Molinsky. An unparalleled legend in the entertainment industry, Joan Rivers became more than just a comedian—she was a force of nature. Above all of her accomplishments, Joan was most proud of her daughter, Melissa Rivers, and her grandson, Edgar “Cooper” Endicott. When Joan Rivers died suddenly in 2014, the comedian left behind a plethora of memorabilia from her unrelenting career, including joke cards (“My dress is by Oscar de la Renta, my body is by Oscar Mayer”), contracts, and personal letters from friends like Elton John and Prince Charles. Rivers’ extensive archives remained mostly sealed and largely unseen for decades—until now. “My parents were fastidious in keeping accurate records across the board with everything,” Melissa Rivers remarked. “Because of her drive to always be fresh, she kept records of every appearance, every performance, all the jokes that were used on TV, all the clothes that were worn…” Rivers recently teamed up with Scott Currie, founder and president of public relations agency Anchor Communications and a dear friend of hers and her mother’s. Once Currie realized “we had material here that was really special,” he devised a book proposal. The proposal was soon picked up by Abrams Books and resulted in a dazzling, coffee-table tome titled Joan Rivers Confidential: The Unseen Scrapbooks, Joke Cards, Personal Files, and Photos of a Very Funny Woman Who Kept Everything (Abrams).

MR: That was definitely my dad, but after my mother passed, I saw that she kept everything also. From the beginning, we knew that she recorded everything and I remember moving out of our Bel-Air house after my father passed and my mother moved back east and we had closets filled with video tapes all labeled in my dad’s very perfect print.

MR: But people don’t know how close you and my mother were. I mean, you were the gay son she always wanted... that I failed to be. SC: But you were clearly her favorite! I was just the East Coast child. Were there things we found that you had never seen before?

MR: So, what made you want to do this project? MR: Some of the photos from the early career were new to me, but what I enjoyed the most was looking back on her correspondences and letters through the years. I’m still trying to get my head around the fact that my parents were

An Ex-Pat’s Fairytale Come True by

Jamie Korey mallett

Each June I traveled from New York City to London to attend Royal Ascot, a tradition I always looked forward to in my favorite city across the pond. Three years ago, however, as winter approached, I was longing for a trip to the beautiful U.K. capital and didn’t want to wait until my annual summer visit. Dancing at Annabel’s, sipping Champagne cocktails at 5 Hertford Street and catching up with friends while drinking ales watching rugby sounded delectable. Afternoon tea with warm scones, clotted cream and Coronation chicken sandwiches at the Royal Automobile Club, an English tradition never properly mastered anywhere else in the world sounded perfect. As the

chilly New York air swept over the city, I decided I couldn’t wait until the following summer to go back London so I packed my bags and grabbed my passport. Time of year aside, this particular London trip turned out to be very different from my other ones and I ended up embarking on the most serendipitous journey. On my first evening in London, an old English friend invited me out for dinner. We had known each other for seven years, had even attended Ascot together a few times, and I was really looking forward to catching up with him. He chose a warm, cozy restaurant in Mayfair and before I knew it, our friendly WINTER 2018/

dinner took a fortuitous romantic turn and became the first of many magical evenings we would ultimately spend together. I proceeded to postpone my return to New York several times over the following weeks and watched our longtime friendship fade away and blossom into an incredible romance. Our relationship continued to flourish and the life I had known so well in New York City was going to merge with a developing one in London. I began referencing my home base as “Nylon,” an acronym I adapted to describe my hybrid transatlantic New York/London life. Bi-coastal worked for so many people so why not Nylon? As it turns out it did work out for us (and my Delta miles), and once we were engaged I started to make the transition from my status as a full-time New Yorker to Londoner (albeit with frequent New York visits). When we thought about our wedding destination, without hesitation, we chose Beirut from where my paternal family originates. It seemed appropriate to celebrate our international romance by having our nuptials in beautiful, international and culturally diverse Beirut. Initially the idea of planning a multi-cultural wedding that would include family and friends from the United Kingdom, the United States, and Lebanon seemed daunting. Wedding customs vary around the world and finessing a successful combination of three nations’ traditions would be no easy task. For example, one of our initial debates was the wedding dress code. My fiancé thought morning dress would be the smartest choice while I thought black tie was the way to go. My family in Beirut ultimately vetoed both and explained that guests would be too warm in either of these more formal choices and since we were having an outdoor wedding in a Mediterranean climate summer suits would be better—they were right! Another cultural topic that had to be addressed was regarding the wedding invitation vernacular. Would we use the traditional English spelling of a word or its American counterpart? I was keen to embrace both styles and compromised on a balance that included both traditional English color and classic American flavor.

Q84

/ WINTER 2018

Finally it was time to shift gears and focus on the most important part: the Wedding. Having grown up visiting Beirut regularly I knew how special the city was and wanted to share it with our guests. Our family and friends were flying to Lebanon from all over the world and my fiancé and I agreed it should be nothing short of outstanding. With the help of a few incredible wedding planners, a four-day wedding fête was put together in varying locations around the city. Our guests arrived on Thursday night for a “welcome reception” at MusicHall, a trendy nightclub on the Mediterranean Sea including dinner, dancing, cabaret performances, cocktails, and a 3:30 a.m. close. The following day my family hosted an afternoon lunch in Byblos, the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world where we lunched right on the old port dating back to 5000 BC. Later that evening, we held a Friday night rehearsal dinner at a private beach resort so close to the sea that the waves were nearly splashing on the dance floor. Saturday, the wedding day, finally arrived and the ceremony and reception took place at our family estate in the mountains over looking downtown Beirut and the Mediterranean Sea at sunset. Simply put, it was the best night of my life, and the party continued far beyond sunrise. The following day the wedding extravaganza was then rehashed over a farewell lunch, which was so much fun it continued until the restaurant’s dinner guests began arriving. The antithesis of a cookie-cutter wedding, for four straight days, new friendships formed among our guests that have continued to flourish after the weekend ended. Words can’t describe how extraordinary the past few years of my life have been. My London visits rendered me the lucky wife of the most wonderful man and the happiest bride of the most magical wedding I could have ever dreamed. The love, excitement, energy, and genuine happiness I felt at the wedding were palpable and in spite of our guests coming from three different countries and cultures the atmosphere felt border-less. I feel privileged that my marriage was the common denominator in bringing together such special friends and family from around the world and it will live on with me forever—in New York, London, Beirut, or wherever else my future path takes me. I took a chance a few years ago when I made a decision based on a feeling and it’s because of that chance I am where I am today. I will always remember that chance as the best bet I’ve ever made, both on and off the Ascot racecourse. u

A Day In The Life: Aerin Lauder B y B r o o k e k e l ly

The Late Estée Lauder, one of the first and most influential female entrepreneurs, founded her namesake beauty brand in 1946, which is now one of the most recognizable in the world. Lauder’s granddaughter Aerin, a modern-day style icon, carries on her outstanding legacy. Aerin has been involved with the Estée Lauder Companies for years and now has a eponymous brand of her own, based on the proposition that exquisite living should come easily. Founded in 2012, AERIN is a luxury lifestyle brand built on a passion for creating inviting interiors and producing feminine products. Aerin’s grandmother served as a huge inspiration and is said to have taught her about “all things beautiful.” Below is an exclusive interview with the successful and stylish businesswoman.

Aerin Lauder, tastemaker and mother of two, is the granddaugh-

Q: What inspired you to create this namesake brand? Was the family legacy a big inspiration? A: Before creating AERIN, I was always asked what’s in my makeup bag and felt there was a void in the marketplace for a feminine, simple beauty brand. The AERIN brand is based on the premise that living beautifully should be effortless. I love giving a modern point of view on classics with a sense of ease. I feel very strongly about every product the AERIN brand makes and love to be involved from start to finish. My grandmother felt the same way.

I believe that as well. I believe in having a fragrance wardrobe so you can choose a scent based on your mood and feeling, not just for day and night, but also by season and occasion. Tuberose is a prized flower with many facets that smells differently in the day than it does at night. Tuberose Le Jour imparts a fresh, bright femininity for day while Tuberose Le Soir evokes an intoxicating sensuality that’s bright and hypnotic. Q: What new collections do you have coming out? A: We just launched our 10th eau de parfum, Hibiscus Palm. Hibiscus Palm was inspired by a magical island escape—it’s not just a fragrance, but a journey to a beautiful tropical destination. I love the natural beauty of golden beaches, lush palms and exotic wild flowers. This fall we also expanded our lighting collection with some beautiful new chandeliers, sconces and table lamps. We also added to our decorative home accessories with a new collection inspired by Palm Beach. I love the woven cane material that we are introducing in that collection on coasters, hurricanes, and a beautiful backgammon set. The collection also has a pretty, soft dune gray velvet for jewelry boxes and vanity trays. Q: Do you have any tips on how to handle life as a mother and a successful businesswoman? A: I think in life, whether it’s in a career-oriented world or being a mother, the idea of having a role model is really import-

ant. My mother always told me, “You only have one chance to be a good mother. Try your hardest.” That’s something I always strive for, particularly when I’m juggling work and family. I think my grandmother was an incredible businesswoman—she taught me the importance of passion, style, hard work, family, and, of course, all things beautiful. Between the two of them, I feel lucky to have such amazing role models. Q: Tell me about a typical day for you. A: I’m up early (by 7:00 a.m.) to feed and walk the dogs. I wash my hair at night so it’s just a quick shower in the morning and simple makeup. My look is very natural and feminine, so my beauty routine is simple. I keep a few essentials in my bag— foundation, bronzer, mascara, and AERIN Rose Lip Conditioner. The conditioner is a pretty, universal, nude shade that works alone or adds an extra polished look over any lipstick. I wear flats because I love to walk everywhere, including to the

Q: Could you tell me more about your new Aspen Style book? Do you have any other projects going on? A: Aspen is very special to me. It’s one of my favorite places to spend time with my family. So, when Assouline approached me about the book, I immediately accepted. Aspen is a town that has so many different dimensions—both in winter and in summer. It was only a matter of time before someone decided to do a book like Aspen Style, and I am so flattered they chose me to collaborate with. We also just opened AERIN Palm Beach on Via Mizner Street and AERIN New York, a by-appointment boutique (email newyork@aerin.com for bookings). Each location has AERIN products but also carries a curated mix of things from other brands that I love. Outside of AERIN, time with my family is so important to me.

I’ll also quickly transform my makeup look with a bit more eyeliner or lipstick and add a few sprays of a different fragrance from what I wore during the day.

Spring Standouts by

b r o o k e k e l ly

Twice each year, fashion dreams turn into reality when the haute couture shows welcome the world’s leading brands into the spotlight—celebrating their most exclusive and anticipated ensembles. Unlike your average runway show, each piece presented is produced as a singular art form for just one lucky client. From the ultra glitzy 1920s-esque collection of Elie Saab to Christian Dior’s more realistic options that favor the transforming definition of feminine fashion, we review the top three shows of the season.

> Givenchy The Givenchy haute couture show, “Mysteries of a Garden at Night,” introduced a co-ed collection specifically designed to encourage interaction between structure and movement. The collection was characterized by the intricate details such as crystalline, which come to life with motion. The venue exemplified the show’s title; the stage was set in a dark French château with a backdrop of blinds that allowed ominous beams of light to flow onto the stage like moonlight onto a garden. Violins played slowly in the background to accompany the presentation, further enhancing the mysterious atmosphere. Claire Waight Keller, Givenchy’s artistic director, wanted to present ensembles that were sharp, focusing largely on fine details—namely tailoring and artistry. In her collection, Keller also played on today’s female power dressing fad and featured big diaphanous dresses with heavily tailored work-wear jackets draped over them. Additionally, the women strutted in wide-legged dress pants, while the men sported skinny jeans— almost blurring the lines between the way the two sexes dress.

> Elie Saab Elie Saab truly outdid himself with this year’s show, which was a unique ode to the Roaring Twenties. The magical collection was filled with bedazzled dresses, big feathers, sequin-embellished headpieces, and oversized bows that paid homage to the parties that fueled the era and the women who lived undemanding, extravagant lives, and attended party after party. Fittingly, the models entered the show descending from an elegant staircase as if they were stepping into one of Gatsby’s lavish affairs in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s renowned novel. The colors presented were soft and delicate but far from dull. Models wore pale pink, blue, and lavender dresses, in addition to a handful of blacks and whites—all with Art Deco-inspired accents that had eyes glued and heads turning. The distinctive show was glamorous, enlivening and, to me, a refreshingly candid display amidst this turning point era for feminine fashion. One of these heavenly dresses will surely make an appearance at this year’s Met Gala. > Christian Dior The emergence of haute couture fashion is closely linked to the history of modern art. Maria Grazia Chiuri used this relationship, coupled with the more recent movement in feminism, as the driving inspiration behind Dior’s new couture collection. As Dior’s first female artistic director, Chiuri has taken this powerful feminist movement to heart and has used her position as a platform to voice her opinions. While Chiuri fully supports traditional feminine looks, she also believes that it necessary to redefine the meaning of feminism in regards to fashion. For the Spring couture show, Chiuri took inspiration from surrealist artist Leonor Fini, who was known for her exaggerated depictions of women, including herself. Fini loved the idea of inevitable theatricality and used overstated clothes and accessories to produce a powerful identity for herself. Chiuri applied this surrealist idea of imagination to her Spring couture show. The runway stage itself was black and white checkered and featured bird cages dangling from the ceiling. The models also wore primarily black and white, ranging from exotic decorated dresses to pants suits. The outfits were accompanied by many whimsical headpieces and accessories that matched Fini’s idea of a majestic look, and lace that echoed caging—a recurring theme in surrealist works and an interesting take on redefined feminism. u

WINTER HOROSCOPES

Q112

Capricorn Dec. 22 to Jan. 19 Forever the planner, you are getting things done this season. Friends might start to be envious that you have your stuff so together, so try not to be smug. If they ask, offer advice but be careful not to come off as condescending. > Faye Dunaway: January 14, 1941

Cancer June 21 to July 22

Aquarius Jan. 20 to Feb. 18

Leo July 23 to Aug. 23

Since Jupiter entered your house this past October, your popularity has swelled, and you’ve racked up a lot of passion projects. Now, Water Bearer, focus your energy on only the one(s) you care most about, as people will be looking to you to lead the way. > Elsa Martinelli: January 30, 1935

Spread the love, queen! Through February, an eclipse in your sign challenges you to be more flexible in relationships. So surprise your partner with a sweet note or a big gesture—a spur-of-the-moment getaway to an exotic location, perhaps? > Robert Redford: August 18, 1936

Pisces Feb. 19 to Mar. 20 As political upheaval, a shaky climate, and Hollywood controversies continue to rock those around you, your steady energy remains unscathed. Don’t forget to give friends a little extra TLC while they cope with the stormy waters. > Elizabeth Taylor: February 27, 1932

Virgo Aug. 24 to Sept. 22 A true giver, make the coming months about you, Virgo. Years of hard work on a project will finally be recognized, so accept the praise and then take the opportunity for a much-needed break. Don’t forget to put up that out-of-office message. > Karl Lagerfeld: September 10, 1933

Aries Mar. 21 to Apr. 19 Always the trailblazer, these past several years have been transformative for Rams. This period of limbo hangs over your house throughout winter, but get ready for a more settled spring. In the meantime, enjoy the ride and treat yourself to a frivolous purchase (or two). > Warren Beatty: March 30, 1937

Libra Sept. 23 to Oct. 22 Your balance-seeking self is about to be tested, Libra. This season, set boundaries at work and at home. You really can’t have it all, so don’t let any single venture hog too much of your time, or you’ll become neglectful in other areas. > John Lennon: October 9, 1940

Taurus Apr. 20 to May 20 Preferring stability, you often keep matters of the heart close to the vest. This season, nurture relationships by opening up and telling loved ones just how much you care for them. The vulnerability, dear Bull, will pay off in spades. > Bianca Jagger: May 2, 1945

Scorpio Oct. 23 to Nov. 21 With Jupiter in your sign these next few months, a tightly locked secret is bound to come out. Be it a small untruth or a scandal of Weinstein proportions, coming clean and a heartfelt apology goes a long way to healing broken relationships. > Goldie Hawn: November 21, 1945

Gemini May 21 to June 20

Sagittarius Nov. 22 to Dec. 21

Some might call you flighty, Gemini, but 2018 is the year to plant your boots on the ground. As your career and personal pursuits shift into overdrive this winter, don’t forget to take a break from it all to focus on you. Schedule a spa day in March. > Brooke Shields: May 31, 1965

All work and no play makes Sagittarius a dull sign. With Saturn making its exit from your house, 2018 boasts new adventures. Take a solo trip somewhere to realign your perspective—think yoga retreat or an Eat, Pray, Love–style adventure. > Jane Birkin: December 14, 1946

/ WINTER 2018

Feeling sleepy? It’s time for Crabs to take it slow and let their emotions guide them. Save your energy and make 2018 the year of saying no—to unreasonable requests at work or to a relationship that hasn’t been in your best interest. > Babe Paley: July 5, 1915
