EDITOR’S NOTE

E

lection Day is here, and as historic as it is to have a woman as a presidential nominee for a major party for the first time, perhaps one day, as glass ceilings are reduced to dust, that won’t seem as groundbreaking as it does now. We’ve heard from the candidates and the convention-goers, the politicos and the pundits, so this issue we looked to the most important participants: you, the voters. We asked women (some casting a ballot for the first time) across the country who they’re voting for and why. Read what they have to say in “Countdown to Election 2016” on page 108. And then, GO VOTE! This month also marks our 4th-annual New Guard list of the most connected women in America (p. 100). We conceived this idea—to spotlight young, trailblazing women who are upending their respective industries—as a nod to the new rules dictating the next generation of power players in tech, media, Hollywood, politics, and beyond. Gone are the days when your influence was determined by a business card, a corner office, or the zeros on your paycheck. All the old totems of power are virtually meaningless these days, as extraordinary new relationships and projects are launched by go-getters with little more than a coworking space and an Uber account. Take littleBits

OK, NOW TALK TO ME!

founder Ayah Bdeir, who is well on her way to presiding over a Lego 2.0 empire; and The Shade Room creator Angelica Nwandu, the Instagram media mogul with more subscribers than The New York Times (seriously!). Marie Claire salutes these gutsy game changers. While you may not have heard of all of them, they’re nonetheless building the kinds of careers and legacies that will shape everything you read, watch, and buy for years to come. To brighten your days as we head deeper into fall, check out “Break the Mold” (p. 156), in which models romp through The Fields Sculpture Park in upstate New York wearing playful looks from the resort collections. The clash and mash of colors, prints, shapes, and textures are as dazzling a display as autumn foliage. This fall is the time to go a little off-script, paint outside the lines, veer out of your comfort zone when it comes to getting dressed. You might just discover the fun you’ve been missing.

CONTRIBUTORS FASHION EDITOR

Andreas KOKKINO

For “Break the Mold” (p. 156), the Brooklynbased stylist dreamed up a scene of “two hip friends out for a fun day of art in the country” and says he drew inspiration from “the explosion of color and pattern in so many of the collections from the resort 2017 season.” MOST-WORN ITEM: “My black Levi’s jeans because they are the basis for my uniform. I always rotate two pairs.” BEST EXHIBIT SEEN RECENTLY: The Mika Rottenberg show at Palais de Tokyo in Paris. CONTRIBUTING EDITOR

PHOTOGRAPHER

Janet MOCK

Ben MORRIS

The New York–based speaker, advocate, MSNBC digital host, and author—who is working on a memoir with Atria Books set to come out next year—sat down to talk with this month’s cover star, Nicki Minaj, for “Nicki on Top” (p. 150). Her takeaway? “That we all have the power to call forth what we want in life. Nicki did just that.” FAVORITE SNACK: Nori popcorn. READING: Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson.

Morris, who moved to New York from Paris six years ago, went out of his way to turn out the best possible photos of his good friend Liya Kebede for “Easy Does It” (p. 166): “I nearly fell off the roof of my studio shooting [her] on the street.” SECRETLY OBSESSED WITH: HP sauce. “I bring it with me when I go out for meals or on vacation.” ACCESSORY YOU’D WEAR EVERY DAY IF YOU COULD: A leather bullwhip.

“It’s always a kick to realize you look up to someone who wasn’t alive when you started having sex,” says Sklar, who lives in New York, on researching this year’s “The New Guard” (p. 100), MC’s list of the most connected women in America. LISTENING TO: “Hamilton, intercut with ‘The Wheels on the Bus.’ (Spoiler alert: They go round and round.)” FAVORITE MEAL: Fries and Diet Coke.

Kai Z FENG

@kaizfeng

New Yorker Kai Z Feng wanted his photos of Nicki Minaj (“Nicki on Top,” p. 150) to be “sexy, yet classic,” so he brought in male models in reference to the famed 1990s Versace ads by Richard Avedon. “The concept [was] harder to execute than planned, but I’m glad she trusted in me and did it anyway.” STYLE ICON: Steve McQueen. FAVORITE MEAL: Clam linguine.

The resort collections story, “Break the Mold” (p. 156), might look idyllic, but the Japan-born, NYC-based photographer tells a different tale: “I was expecting blue skies with strong sunshine, but we had pouring rain and lots of mosquitoes.” FAVORITE ART PIECE: “My son’s painting.” MOST LISTENED-TO SONG: “Long Hot Summer” by The Style Council.

Candice Campbell of Knoxville, Tennessee, wins this month’s beauty bag for fighting for fair pay: “The article ‘Show Us the Money!’ by Kayla Webley really hits close to home for me. As a female graduate who is looking for a decent-paying job, it’s very hard to get paid the same amount as a male coworker. Learning and understanding not to compromise so soon is important. Also, never feel bad and apologize for asking, never give up, and know your self-worth. These are definitely key steps I need to follow in the working world.”

Behind the scenes at the Philadelphia shoot

HAIR: For Minaj’s sleek strands, hairstylist Kim Kimble first shampooed and blowdried the singer’s hair. Then, Kimble used a drop of shine serum and a flatiron to create the stick-straight style. “I tucked her hair behind the ears because it’s more modern; it really flatters her face,” she says. MAKEUP: Makeup artist Sheika Daley went with bare, clean-looking skin and a major cat eye for the shoot. She started with liquid foundation, adding bronzer and highlighter to contour and strobe. Daley then applied champagne-colored eyeshadow; graphic, winged liner; and black mascara to make Minaj’s eyes pop. To finish, she swiped on a pinkish-nude lip gloss. “Her look is sultry, yet innocent, because her bold eyes are paired with a toned-down lip,” Daley says. NAILS: Minaj chose edgy black lacquer—and a pointed nail shape—to go with the glam clothes on set. —Heather Furlow

SUN KISSED

Powder bronzer gave the Trinidad-born rapper’s skin a warm, golden sheen.

Designer Kendra Scott at her brand’s new office

WHO WE LOVE

“I WANTED PEOPLE TO FEEL LIKE THEY WERE WALKING INTO MY HOME AND GETTING A WARM HUG.” —KENDRA SCOTT

3

HOW DESIGNER KENDRA SCOTT IS BUILDING THE MOST WOMAN-FRIENDLY CORPORATE ENVIRONMENT EVER Walking into Kendra Scott’s Austin, Texas, headquarters, there are a few things you’ll find unusual. A nail salon, for instance, where employees get free mani-pedis with custom Kendra Scott polishes. A state-of-the-art gym that offers comped yoga and boot-camp classes. A complimentary smoothie bar that delivers to your desk. Intrigued? This is the dream office Scott has spent the past three years designing for her self-described “girl squad.” “Ninety-eight percent of our employees are women, so everything was about making their lives easier,” says Scott, who also installed a room for nursing mothers and a toy-filled game center for older kids. “There’s no reason you can’t be a mom and also have a successful career.” As the mother of three boys, Scott speaks from personal experience. Her oldest was strapped to her back when she went door-to-door selling her first jewelry collection in 2002. With promising plans to expand into the home-furnishings space, Scott crafted most of the office’s interior accents herself, down to the custom light fixtures, gemstone-themed conference rooms, and her own precious-stone-shaped desk. Sitting at it, she often reflects on her humble beginnings. “My first office was in the attic of a local sandwich shop because it was all I could afford,” says the Wisconsinborn designer, who struck out with a small hat business (inspired by her stepfather’s fight with brain cancer) before trying her hand at jewelry. (To this day, she wheels in free carts of her designs to patients at the MD Anderson cancer ward.) “Let’s just say this has been a longtime fantasy of mine.” Still feels like one to us. —Carolina O’Neill 1. EARRINGS $1,500. 2. RING $85. 3. NECKLACE $140. 4. RING $85. 5. BRACELET $95. All items, Kendra Scott; kendrascott.com.

Good VIBRATIONS Dark shades, thick layers—as winter weather approaches, we’re often less inspired to be adventurous with our outfit choices. Not so this year! From folksy dresses to romantic ruffles, quirky polka dots to checkerboard prints, the resort runways were a parade of smile-inducing colors and patterns. They weren’t just fun to look at, they also looked like a blast to wear. So set aside that black bag in favor of, say, a splashy striped one, trade that monotone coat for a plush intarsia cover-up— it’s time to wave hello to a bright new attitude. @ninagarcia BAG $2,600, FENDI; (212) 897-2244.

COURTESY OF THE DESIGNER

Before she became Coco, Gabrielle Chanel was the daughter of an itinerant farm laborer, obsessed with her father’s humble sense of prosperity. “My good wheat,” he’d say, describing the fields he harvested throughout the French countryside. His notion of bounty was her first hint of abundance in an otherwise impoverished childhood. As she grew older and cultivated her own success, she nestled wheat next to the mantle of her Paris fireplace and decorated her suite at the Ritz with sheaves. “Chanel loved to surround herself with objects that ‘protected her,’” says Benjamin Comar, international director of Chanel Fine Jewelry. “Either in bunches of fresh wheat or in wood, brass, or bronze.” Now, the house unveils Les Blés de Chanel, a fine jewelry collection inspired by the life cycle of the crop from tender shoot to golden grain. The 62-piece range is a jewelry hedonist’s fantasy: a 477.5-carat necklace of tangled diamonds and sapphires; a brooch bound by a 10.2-carat yellow sapphire; a necklace of 121 multicolored, 932 yellow, and 165 white diamonds, all set off by a 25-carat brilliant-cut diamond. Each is a perfect talisman to those for whom luxury is the bread of life. —Hilary Elkins

DIAMONDS IN THE SKY For his latest jewelry line, David Yurman has stars in his eyes

“Gold came from the night sky,” says jewelry designer David Yurman. His theory, it turns out, isn’t just the notion of a visionary and dreamer, but was first imagined by Earth scientists, who postulated that meteorites, metaphorically kissed by the stars and cracked open when they hit the Earth’s crust, may have brought the precious metal with them. It makes sense then that Yurman, along with his wife and longtime business partner, Sybil, unveils Supernova, a four-piece 18-karat-gold-and-diamond set that calls to mind the striking geometric shapes of the celestial world. The line is a futuristic departure from the label’s more iconic cabled pieces. “Sybil and I have spent many hours just gazing into the sky, identifying constellations,” Yurman says. “This collection captures her energy to a T.” The earrings and ring outline the points on a star, burnished rays collapsing into a constellation of tiny round diamonds; a bracelet gilds the wrist with a delicate network of supernovas; and a pendant necklace resembles a hanging burst of light. It’s all, Yurman says, “about our relationship with the night sky, the inherent value of permanence,” and, he adds, “being touched by the stars.” —Hilary Elkins

The New Mexico landscape

the GETAWAY

Calla Lilies on Red (1928) by Georgia O’Keeffe

SANTA FE

All aboard! As Coach celebrates its 75th anniversary, creative director Stuart Vevers, 42, hops the scenic train to New Mexico, uncovering a trove of folk art, vintage shops, and ideas for his next collection Wares by regional artisans at Shiprock in downtown Santa Fe. ABOVE: Solar, a 1960s-style bus in Taos that Vevers suggests stopping by for ice cream and coffee

Getting there

My husband, Benjamin, and I flew from New York to L.A. and rented a cabin on the Amtrak train, which is about a 24-hour ride to Santa Fe. You just chill out, read, and watch the landscape change outside the window. Day turns to night as you roll through parts of the countryside inaccessible by road, and the whole thing feels very cinematic. I couldn’t help but post an Instagram video of the view.

Culture fix In the mornings, we’d lounge by the pool at the

Vevers in front of the Arrow Motel in Española, outside of Santa Fe

Four Seasons, then hit up places like the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and the Museum of International Folk Art, which is filled with artifacts. I’m not a huge art collector—I’m more into old crafts that have been touched by human hands, which you can find in the square downtown. There’s live music and people selling jewelry on the street, and it feels like you’re in another time. The Girl of the Golden West was playing at the Santa Fe Opera, which is beautiful because you can watch the sun set behind the open-air stage. Mexican food is also a must, and for that I recommend The Shed.

Shop talk Shiprock has an interesting mix of art, rugs, and

local crafts. We also spent a day scouring Santa Fe Vintage, where I found these old prairie dresses that were falling apart. I was so inspired by them that they’re making their way into our next collection. In Taos, I picked up bandannas and charms at a powwow, where Native American tribes gather for days to dance, socialize, and exchange goods.

Packing list I find the dry desert heat much more bearable than 4

humid New York. My uniform was espadrilles, black shorts, and a black T-shirt—very easy. I’d tell a woman to pack things you can just throw on that make you feel good. That’s generally how I approach womenswear: Even if it’s an elaborately printed garment, it should have the effortlessness of a T-shirt. It’s all about that American ease, which is impossible to achieve if you’re trying too hard. 1. DRESS $750, Coach 1941; coach.com. 2. TOP $495, Coach 1941; coach.com. 3.

101 IDEAS Designer Virgil Abloh. RIGHT: His resort collection mood board

With his boundary-pushing label, Off-White, designer Virgil Abloh is upending the fashion game

“‘STREET’ MEANS SOMETHING THAT IS QUICKLY DIGESTIBLE, UNIQUE, AND A LITTLE BIT IRONIC.”

Virgil Abloh doesn’t sleep much. “I always have to be doing two or three things at a time,” he says. “Spinning my wheels, jotting down notes, connecting with people.” No doubt this is why, in just three years, Abloh’s street-inspired label, Off-White, has gone from an edgy fringe name to one of the hottest brands of the moment, beloved by the likes of Rihanna, Rita Ora, and Kanye West (who hired Abloh after graduate school as creative director of the musician’s brand and image). “Like every kid in the ’90s, I was passionate about skateboarding, snowboarding, hip-hop,” says the designer, 36, who was raised in Rockford, Illinois, by Ghanaian immigrant parents. Those influences can be seen in Off-White, known for its voluminous denim, graphic striped sweatshirts, and architectural silhouettes. For resort, Abloh built a story around what he calls “roses of war,” turning out a camo-print skirt with a long train, Japanese-chic silk tracksuits, and an undone bathrobe coat embroidered with a red rose branch, a motif used in several pieces. Accessories run the gamut from crystal-embellished ankle boots to metallic bags with industrial-style straps. Artfully mixing the casual with the high-end is the designer’s M.O.—he counts everyone from Martin Margiela to Martha Stewart as creative influences, and collects Birkin totes and vintage graphic tees. “To me, Levi’s are as luxurious as a $3,000 handbag,” he says. A multitasker of epic proportions, he also makes furniture, teaches an online course on streetwear, moonlights as a DJ (his way to “tune out”), and creates buzzworthy retail spaces. “The idea that stores need to look alike is the old way of thinking. Now, brands need to be intriguing in new ways,” says Abloh. “I never undersell the intellect of my customer.” In his own words, that’s “anyone who’s paying attention.” With the statement Abloh’s making, who isn’t? —Carolina O’Neill

SCENTS YOU CANÕT FORGET


FIGHT TECH NECK

ADVERTISEMENT

YOUR TECHNOLOGY IS WORKING AGAINST YOU

THE IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY More delicate than the skin on your face, the neck is one of the first places to show age. And tech may be making matters worse. Without realizing it, we’re repeatedly looking down at our phones and keyboards. In fact, the average person looks down at their phone 221 times a day. As with squint lines around the eyes, these repeated motions can become permanent, leading to horizontal neck lines and sagging skin called Tech Neck.

TIGHTEN ON THE GO StriVectinÕs Tightening Neck Serum Roller is a lightweight serum for the neck that glides on smoothly and absorbs immediately. Apply throughout the day to instantly smooth and firm skin anytime, anywhere.

The #1 selling neck cream*

3 WAYS TO FIGHT

TECH NECK

1 2 3

KEEP YOUR CHIN UP You can fight Tech Neck by looking down at your devices less often. When glancing at your phone, hold it up to your face rather than looking down at the screen.

DETOX FROM YOUR DEVICES Establish a daily “no phone zone”. Setting aside more tech-free time each day will give your neck a break. And, it’s a great way to interact with the world around you.

SCIENCE HOLDS THE SOLUTION StriVectin’s collection of neck experts is powered by NIA-114 technology to smooth existing wrinkles, defend against sagging, and fight Tech Neck. Start with TL Advanced , the #1 selling neck cream – now available in original or a new lightweight texture. The choice is yours – with the same proven results. TM

y dear friend Jenné Lombardo invited me to a Buick-hosted pampering weekend in Montauk, New York, but this wasn’t your everyday mani-pedi-massage situation. Arriving by seaplane, I was whisked to an impressive glass house nestled in the woods. Alongside models (Nina Agdal), musicians (Margot), and designers (Carly Cushnie), we ran through New Age treatments from body mapping to sound baths to workout sessions with Tracy Anderson before feasting poolside on fresh tomato and burrata, steak, and Eton mess (meringue, fruit, and whipped cream) prepared by The Fat Radish. My moment of weakness: when someone brought out a bottle of Don Julio 1942 tequila that she had sneaked in. After all, every detox deserves a little retox. Once recharged, I dove right into shooting the Intermix holiday campaign. I love it when a shoot brings us to spaces that are generally inaccessible, in this case, backstage at the Kings Theatre in Flatbush, Brooklyn. We took turns belting out songs onstage to an invisible audience—I’m convinced I got a standing ovation. Afterward, I flew to Las Vegas with the Milk Makeup

team for the Sephora beauty conference—the mecca of beauty conferences—which hosts hundreds of entrepreneurs, bloggers, retailers, and industry types at the gargantuan Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas hotel. I got to play show-andtell with our best fall products in front of a crowd that included beauty gurus such as Jen Atkin, Josie Maran, and Christophe Robin. Being a Brit with unnaturally dry humor, I jumped at the chance to film a series of comedic New York Fashion Week videos for Smartwater (that aired on its site and on milk.xyz). In “How to Not Be Basic,” I play a jaded editrix in a Victoria Beckham dress guiding a hopeless first-timer (actress Amber Schaefer) through thorny style scenarios. It was great to lampoon the industry (because, let’s face it, we sometimes deserve it) while sharing fashion tips anyone can use. No matter how fabulous life gets, family is what it’s all about for me. I spent a few days in Connecticut to bingeeat, laugh-cry, and sleep-talk with my wonderful English family. I truly believe that the best things in life are free, and as Coco Chanel once said, “The second-best things are very, very expensive.” My highlight came when I saw Paul McCartney perform at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, rocking out hit after hit for nearly three hours. I got to sing “Hey Jude” with the original Jude in my life—my mum! @zannarassi

“I could literally blow my whole paycheck on thigh-high boots. They remind me of Pretty Woman!”

“I’ve always tried to go against the grain,” says Nadia Aboulhosn. No kidding. Whether it’s being the only girl on her high school’s all-male football team or posting belfies, the 28-year-old fashion blogger loves proving people wrong. When Seventeen magazine found her blog and asked if she lived in New York so they could shoot her for an editorial, Aboulhosn—then 22 and working at a family friend’s restaurant in Orlando, Florida—booked a ticket the next day. “I know how to hustle,” she says. “I was my own manager for the first three years, pitching myself every single day.” She’s since hustled her way into numerous modeling contracts, designer gigs (collaborating with H&M, Boohoo, and Addition Elle), and a combined social-media following of 1.1 million (more than 491,000 on Instagram alone). Her posts cover everything from street style to the Syrian refugee crisis (find her documentary about it on YouTube), and she’s known for DIYing outfits, like taking scissors to a Walmart sweatshirt and sweatpants. Debuting a namesake line this month, Aboulhosn is planning a celebratory trip to Iceland with her boyfriend this fall. “A lot of people are surprised that I’m in a relationship, and it’s like, Seriously? ” she says. “I could slide into my direct messages right now and read you a long list of guys who’d kill to date me.” We’ve already fallen, hard. —Carolina O’Neill

show, only a couple have emerged as bona fide stars: Samantha Bee, who left to front her own politically skewering show on TBS; and Jessica Williams, the show’s designated “youth correspondent,” who announced her departure in June. When she was hired in 2012, Williams was 22 and the youngest correspondent to ever work at The Daily Show. She was the first black woman, too. Her arrival was a big deal for the show, which had famously struggled to include female voices. And Williams quickly found a niche—segments about the hot-button issues of race, feminism, and, sometimes, the intersection of the two—that crowned her one of the most popular (and recognizable) castmates. “Sometimes, you feel like, Am I going to be upset about this as a black person or as a woman first? Or am I gonna be both?” says Williams, over a cup of tea and crackers. “Because some things inherently affect black women; some things affect you as a woman and not a black person; and some things just affect you as a black person.” Williams’ exit from The Daily Show, currently anchored by Trevor Noah, is bittersweet, especially during this particularly charged election season. The timing couldn’t be better for her to embark on a promising solo career, but make no mistake, we are losing an important political voice. Williams is now at work on her own hotly anticipated show for Comedy Central, a scripted series about, as the log line says, “a politically minded young woman who may be ‘woke’ but

“Getting past that initial intimidation took a little bit … I had to come outside of myself a lot. I wasn’t someone who was super-outspoken.”

or decades, female comedians have been shut out of political satire. It’s not that women don’t joke about politics, it’s just that they aren’t often given an opportunity, let alone a platform, to share their views with the broader public. Of course, there have been notable exceptions—is it even possible to imagine Tina Fey without seeing Sarah Palin?—but for the most part, poking politics has been a male pursuit. In 1996, back when Bill Clinton was president, The Daily Show came along and fast became our most reliable (and reliably biting) outpost for political satire. Though the show was actually created by women—comedians Lizz Winstead and Madeleine Smithberg— it has long been associated with its male stars, most notably host Jon Stewart and its three other most famous alums, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, and John Oliver. As for the women on the

doesn’t know what she’s doing.” It will pull from her own life, and while it’s sure to delve into thorny topics (as sharp comedy does), it isn’t a talk show à la Larry Wilmore’s recently canceled chat fest. And while Williams also cohosts the popular podcast 2 Dope Queens, with stand-up comic Phoebe Robinson, it only grazes politics, instead mining its LOLs from dating, beauty, and pop culture. This fall, she’s shooting an indie rom-com opposite Chris O’Dowd. So for the time being at least, Williams is done with political satire. And it’s hard to tell that she really misses it much. “It’s been very nice to be on vacation, because everything’s infuriating. I’ve been very much enjoying doing the movie and doing my own show and doing 2 Dope Queens. Because this election is cray-cray,” she tells me. Williams was raised in an upper-middle-class Los Angeles suburb, the middle of three children. It was her grandmother, a fan of MadTV, Saturday Night Live, and even Adult Swim, who introduced her to comedy. “She had this twisted sort of humor,” Williams says. “She was just a really sassy lady. She always drank Colt 45s and she smoked cigarettes. I feel like there are two types of grandmas. There’s a milkand-cookies grandma, and then there’s a Vegas/Atlantic City grandma. And my grandma was the latter, which was really, really fun.” In high school, Williams took up musical theater and comedy sports, a type of competitive team improv, and, being that she was in L.A., she also got an agent. Before long, she was cast on a Nickelodeon series, Just for Kicks, about a group of girls on a soccer team, which lasted just one season. For college, Williams went to California State University at Long Beach, where she majored in film and English, and

then she started taking classes at the L.A. outpost of the Upright Citizen’s Brigade. In 2012, she auditioned for a Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis movie, The Campaign. She didn’t get the part, but the casting director, Allison Jones—she famously discovered Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen, among many others—suggested Williams submit a tape to The Daily Show. Williams put on her best representation of a newswoman and did two segments—one Aasif Mandvi piece, the other by Oliver. “I’m a perfectionist, so in my head I was like, Oh, I could’ve done that dick joke better,” Williams recalls. A week later, she was in New York. The first time she met Stewart, he was coming down the hall, singing, and then “just walked up to me, shook my hand, and looked me in the eye and said, ‘I’ve already seen your tape. I already like you. You don’t have to worry about impressing me. Just make sure that you’re present with me.’ And it was really liberating,” she recalls. “I auditioned with him. He improvised a little bit, and I improvised a little bit, and it just felt like a really good date, is the best way I could describe it.” Williams’ first few months there were a crash course in high-voltage, supersharp comedy. “I had to get used to seeing Samantha Bee around, I had to get used to seeing Jon, like, getting a bagel, and to John Oliver, and all these people whom I had seen on TV. Colbert would sometimes drop by. I had to get used to being a part of this multipleEmmy-winning machine and being this 22-year-old black girl who was really green,” Williams recalls. “Getting past that initial intimidation took a little bit, and feeling comfortable enough to pitch ideas. I had to come outside of myself a lot. ’Cause I wasn’t someone who was superoutspoken. Every single person at The Daily Show is fucking hilarious, but I would have to get used to these big meetings where everyone was just firing off. I would raise my hand, and Jon would point to me and

slideshows of cats and stuff,” she says. “It’s gonna be like me. I’m a young person; sometimes I’m political, sometimes I’m not. Sometimes, on 2 Dope Queens, we just talk about whether we would do it with Don Draper or not. So it’s going to be all those things.” If it’s anything like Queens, which debuted in April, expect it to include diverse voices and opinions. “If I see one more straight white dude get up on stage and talk about masturbating in the same way that it’s always been talked about, it’s like, I don’t fucking care anymore,” Williams says. “I was doing a college show for the first time, and there was this 20-year-old gay male who’s been diabetic his entire life. He said, ‘I really wanna get into stand-up.’ I was like, ‘Oh, my God, do you realize how interesting and inherently funny you are? Go do all the comedy that you wanna do.’ I care about that.”

“If I see one more straight white dude on stage talk about masturbating in the same way it’s always been, it’s like, I don’t care anymore.” say, ‘Jessica, what do you have to say about this?’ Just to sort of get my muscles going. That really helped me out a lot.” The first piece Williams really felt a connection to aired during the three-month period that Oliver was hosting; it was about the New York City police department’s policy of stop and frisk. After that, “I started to pitch more ideas along that line, even down to women getting catcalled,” she says. After four years, Williams sounds more like a hard-charging journalist than an entertainer. Take, for example, her parting shot on her last episode: a segment about Bernie Sanders voters who say they’re going to vote for Donald Trump. Williams interviewed the voters and exposed the craziness in the logic. “I got a lot of flack from Bernie supporters that I had represented Bernie or Busters that way,” Williams says. “I love Bernie Sanders so much, but to go from voting for him to voting for Donald Trump, who is racist and a bigot, and who believes that women should be punished for having abortions, and who never says anything consistent, and who does not have a plan, and who rides on this idea of hate and terror—that is a story. It is a fucking story.” In her new series for Comedy Central, which she’ll write (with stand-up comedian Naomi Ekperigin) and star in, Williams describes her character, a journalist, as a young black feminist. “She wants to write hard-hitting stories, and she gets a job at a place where they want

Countdown toELECTION

2016

It’s been nearly 100 years since women won the right to vote,

and clearly, we don’t take the privilege lightly. In every presidential election since 1964, more women than men have cast ballots. For the first time in history, a woman is at the top of the ticket for a major political party. Over the past year, we’ve watched the conventions, rallies, and debates. We’ve heard the opinions of pundits, party leaders, and family and friends. Now we’re hearing yours—whatever candidate you support—in this snapshot of voters across America who will make their voices heard on November 8 in electing our 45th president.

“I’m a Republican Voting for Hillary” Why lifelong, die-hard GOP supporter Jennifer Pierotti Lim is voting blue this November By KAYLA

WEBLEY

when Republican leaders started endorsing Donald Trump. That was when it clicked that we had to do something to give Republican women a voice. There are so many of us out there who don’t believe that Trump represents us or the Republican Party. MC: WHY START AN ORGANIZATION SUPPORTING HILLARY CLINTON?

PAT BENIC/UPI/NEWSCOM. OPPOSITE PAGE: © BRAND NEW IMAGES

Jennifer Pierotti Lim, cofounder of Republican Women for Hillary, at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, July 2016

Some of Jennifer Pierotti Lim’s earliest memories are of going with her father to polling stations near their home in Richmond, Virginia, to hand out pamphlets on his chosen Republican candidates. As an adult, she volunteered on local campaigns to get out the GOP vote. This election cycle, Lim will do something she never before thought possible: vote for a Democrat. And that’s not all. In May, she and Meghan Milloy cofounded Republican Women for Hillary to do everything in their power to ensure the GOP loses the election. “I felt it was important that it not go unchecked that the Republican Party has nominated a man who thinks very little of women and treats them as such,” says Lim, 31. Here, she discusses why she’s #WithHer, her experience speaking at the DNC, and why Republicans shouldn’t sit out the election. MARIE CLAIRE: WHO DID YOU SUPPORT DURING THE PRIMARY SEASON? JENNIFER PIEROTTI LIM: I can’t say I was super-thrilled about anybody. I really liked Jeb Bush—he’s a thoughtful policy maker and more moderate on social issues that Millennials care about. I think he encapsulates the direction the party needs to go. But I also really liked Carly Fiorina. I thought she killed it during the debates, and I appreciate her business background. MC: WHEN THEY DROPPED OUT, DID YOU THINK, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO? JPL: Like many Republicans, I have gone through many stages of disbelief and grief throughout the campaign. The impetus for our group came

JPL: I have so many Republican friends sitting the election out or writing someone else in. Our call to action to them is: You have to get involved in this election because Hillary Clinton is, at the very least, our only chance of blocking Trump from the White House. Beyond that, we wanted to impress upon Republicans how valuable their vote is in expressing their disagreement about the direction he’s taking the party. If we don’t speak out, there is not going to be a Republican Party after this election. MC: HOW DID YOU GET THE GROUP GOING? JPL: We had limited resources and figured our best bet for making an impact would be through social media, so we started our Facebook and Twitter pages back in May. Now when we post on Facebook, we reach about 40,000 to 50,000 people. Over the summer, we launched a website so people can get in touch with us. We’re trying to expand our grassroots network, which is growing by the day. Over the past few months and especially after the DNC, thousands of people have reached out to us—we’ve gotten more Facebook messages than we could ever go through. MC: WHAT WAS IT LIKE SPEAKING AT THE DNC? JPL: I was most worried about reading off the teleprompter, but it worked out OK. I’ve never been to a Democratic convention before, but everybody there was so welcoming— I’ve been overwhelmed by the gratitude and kindness. MC: DOES IT SCARE YOU TO THINK OF ANOTHER FOUR YEARS WITH A DEMOCRAT IN THE WHITE HOUSE? JPL: I have confidence that Hillary will continue to be the leader that we have seen her be throughout her whole career. I expect to see her taking a very moderate approach to issues, getting things done, and having all the right people at the table, whether they’re Democrats or Republicans. There are so many things that I can already see that we can work together on, and that is a great starting point for me and for many Republicans. I don’t worry about her at all—my fear is all about Trump. I just cannot imagine what his effect would be on America if he gets elected.

THE STORIES BEHIND EIGHT WOMEN—SOME CASTING A BALLOT FOR THE FIRST TIME—REVEAL WHO THEY’RE SUPPORTING ON ELECTION DAY AND WHY

THE VOTES JORDAN DANIELLE HAMILTON, 19

LOCATION: BROOKLYN

Democrat, voting for Hillary Clinton

VOTING HISTORY: First presidential election; she started paying attention in 2008 because she was excited by Barack Obama’s candidacy

“I’m just hopping off the Bernie [Sanders] wagon, so I’m trying to adjust. Have you seen those memes that are like, ‘I’m With Her … I Guess?’ That’s essentially how I feel.”

EMILY HALL, 20

LOCATION: WASHINGTON, D.C.

Republican, voting for Hillary Clinton

VOTING HISTORY: Voted for Mitt Romney in 2012, and supported John Kasich in the primary

“Donald Trump is a divisive character and not someone who embraces America. At our roots, we are a country of immigrants, and his comments about excluding anyone from overseas are very offensive … I wish my vote was for someone whom I agreed with more and was inspired by instead of just being the lesser of two evils; my vote is more anti-Trump than pro-Hillary.”

110 MA R IE C L A I R E .C O M November 2016

MIRIAM CEPEDA, 25

LOCATION: EDINBURG, TX

Republican, voting for Donald Trump VOTING HISTORY: Voted for Mitt Romney in 2012

“People ask how I could support a ‘racist’ toward my own people [Cepeda is of Mexican descent] … Donald Trump is the only candidate pointing to the statistics of the unreported violence that’s bleeding over into the U.S. as illegal immigration and drug cartel violence continues … To move forward as a nation, we must secure our border for our safety and our future.”

Hall is a member of the Harvard Republican Club, which is not endorsing the Republican nominee for president for the first time since its founding in 1888 LOCATION: CAMBRIDGE, MA

Republican, voting for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson

VOTING HISTORY: Voted for Marco Rubio in the primary

“I cannot put my support behind someone whom I so fundamentally disagree with. I highly doubt Gary Johnson is going to win, but I can’t not vote. Women only got the right to vote, what, 100 years ago? I’m not about to waste that right.”

SARAH HAGMAYER, 21 (right)

LOCATION: TABERNACLE, NJ

Republican, voting for Donald Trump

VOTING HISTORY: Too young to vote in previous elections, but supported Mitt Romney and John McCain. Growing up, “Fox was always on” at her house

“The main reason I’m voting for him is because he has brought so much spirit back to our country. I’ve been to two rallies and talked to people decked out in patriotic gear—they are so ready for the change Trump will bring and are ready to be proud Americans again.”

“Say whatever you want about Hillary Clinton—you can disagree with her, you can love her—but at the end of the day, she is a woman, and that in and of itself is really significant … She listens and tries, and really wants to help the largest number of people that she can. I think she has been handling herself with grace despite the mud that is thrown at her.”

AREEJ SIDDIG, 30

LOCATION: AUSTIN, TX

Democrat, voting for Green Party candidate Jill Stein VOTING HISTORY: First

election—she was born in Sudan and became a U.S. citizen this year

“If we are to survive climate change, we have to have collective action, and the government is paralyzed. We need to actually change things … and Jill Stein is a real progressive candidate who is for the people and can be held accountable.”

We don’t have a country if we don’t have borders, and I think we need to put America first … My mother and I are very much for the border wall.” REPORTING BY PAULINA CACHERO, BRIDGET DUFOUR, HANNAH DYLAN PASTERNAK, AND ELIZA SOLOMON

IN LOVE WITH LOVING

Some love stories are so powerful, they leave you shaking with a mix of joy, anger, and grief. Loving (Focus Features), in theaters November 4, does just that. It’ll also: make you cry; send you down a Wikipedia spiral; and generate Room-level Oscar buzz. The film is based on the true story of Richard Loving, a white man (a wholly transformed Joel Edgerton), and his wife, Mildred, a black woman (magnificently, skillfully played by Ruth Negga). The couple married in Washington, D.C., in 1958 before returning to Caroline County, Virginia, breaking the state’s antimiscegenation law. After the popcorn-spilling jump scare that is the couple’s nighttime arrest, the Lovings set down a path that leads to the 1967 Supreme Court decision nullifying laws prohibiting interracial marriage. Loving is more than a history lesson—it’s a lesson in fighting for that love story’s happy ending, no matter how sad the postscript, both in the film and IRL, may be. —J.O. Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton in Loving

By S T E P H O P I T Z

1. THE PRINCESS DIARIST by Carrie Fisher (Blue Rider Press)

We don’t have to tell you that the princess of all princesses (you know, Leia) gives zero effs about what the world thinks about her. And, thankfully, she has given us all the gift of charmingly elaborating on her life and philosophies in her latest memoir.

2. SWING TIME by Zadie Smith (Penguin Press)

If you read Smith’s NW, you’ll be happy to know this novel feels linked. And, if not, this transfixing, wide-ranging (from continents to emotions to footwork) novel won’t be lost on you (but read NW, already). The scene: Two girls in 1982 London meet in a dance class, see their sameness and differences, and bond instantly.

3. PARIS FOR ONE & OTHER STORIES by Jojo Moyes (Pamela Dorman Books)

Pull out the Kleenex: Moyes (Me Before You) is back with a collection of nine tales in her trademark style. With stories that ask questions such as, “What would it be like to walk in someone else’s shoes, literally?” each involves a woman who is deciding between playing it safe or changing it all.

through a series of unfortunate events, that there’s a tumor between his eyes. In this tour de force, Alexander Bruno, Lethem’s master manipulator/protagonist, will have to learn where Lady Luck’s allegiances lie.

5. THE CHEMIST by Stephenie Meyer (Little, Brown and Company)

Twilight fans are all-grown-up and so is this new novel from the mega-selling author. Here, an exciting heroine (see: female Jason Bourne) knows too much, is a threat, and has one last chance to clear her name. Even more exciting than vampires, no?

Rose, a collector of sorts. Think Love Potion #9 meets The Night Circus and yet wholly unique and fantastic in its own right.

7. RAY & JOAN: The Man Who Made the McDonald’s Fortune and the Woman Who Gave It All Away by Lisa Napoli (Dutton) Rarely do you hear “McDonald’s” and think philanthropy. But Joan Kroc, the McDonald’s heiress by way of her late husband, will change your mind. And this wonderfully moving and entertaining biography will have you thinking differently about what it means to give generously and spend lavishly.

There’s a lot to discuss when it comes to the polarizing Joan Rivers—feuds, plastic surgeries, familial turmoil—and Bennetts covers it all with aplomb. No matter how you feel about Rivers, reading this book will give you a better understanding of a woman who fought for space in a male-owned industry. Oh, and you’ll laugh, too.

Hyaluronic acid (HA), a humectant that holds 1,000 times its weight in water, has been used in skincare for years. But the standard form of it is a large molecule that may have trouble penetrating deep into skin. Now, companies are making lotions and serums with multiple forms of HA, each bioengineered to have a different molecular weight so the hydrating benefits can reach all skin layers. SkinMedica’s new lotion has five forms of the ingredient, including a time-released version. Paula’s Choice’s serum contains two types, plus ceramides that boost skin’s barrier to keep all that moisture locked in. And NIOD’s serum features 12 forms and pumps up skin’s own HA production.

Everyone in our office knows how obsessed I am with my little old cabin in Woodstock, New York, a few hours’ drive north of the city. Do I have the best job in the world? Yes. But do I also treasure spending time hugging trees, no lipstick required? Absolutely. For many, upstate cottages trigger warm-weather-related memories— Beauty Director ER IN F LAH ERT Y Fourth of July–weekend BBQs, rosé marathons, and those endless summer days (sigh)—but now that fall is in full force, I’m all about the coziness of a crackling fire and walking my dog through the deliciously crisp snow. And while Kardashian-level “kontouring” is a little overdressed for this rustic sensibility, there are still tons of beauty treats that fit right in with the scenery: Think woodsy candles, all-natural tinctures to soothe dry skin, and winter-is-coming balms and salves galore. Of course, all this seasonal talk reminds me of how glorious the city is during the holidays, and that’s fine and great. On the other hand, the ’80s pop song still rings true: Everybody’s working for the weekend, right?

POWER MOVES

Fall’s top looks make a statement. Here, experts decipher the messages behind the makeup By Jennifer Goldstein In the 1990 book Finishing Touches, a guide for being “poised, polished, and beautifully prepared for life,” etiquette expert Anne Oliver wrote that makeup “is not to be worn as a mask, nor is it to be used to make a social statement. Makeup is solely to protect your facial skin and enhance your features.” To which most of us today would respond, “Bwahahaha,” followed by a few laughing-crying emojis if we happened to be texting. In 2016, makeup is all about making a statement. “It’s not just a smoky eye or another red lip—you want the wow factor,” says NYC makeup artist Nick Barose. And today’s notice-me trends have a cool quirkiness that sets them apart: Dark lipstick has moved beyond berry to straight-up brown—or even blue. Brows are unapologetically bold. Highlighter is a look all by itself, instead of a finishing touch. And lashes are full-on, in-your-face fluttery. “Makeup is no longer about appearing feminine or trying to please men; it’s more about women expressing their individuality and redefining what they think of as beautiful,” says Poppy King, author of this month’s The A to Z of Lipstick. “It’s empowering.”

• Apply lipstick with a small brush for precision. These colors already have a grunge vibe, so application has to be perfect or the whole look reads messy. • Add shine to the center of your bottom lip by pressing on balm or even a metallic eyeshadow in a similar shade, suggests Barose. “This gives the color dimension so it doesn’t look flat, like a Pantone color card.” • Fill in your brows. “Think about proportions,” says Warren. “Dark lips draw attention down and make the lower half of your face look heavy; filled-in brows give a bit of a lift to balance things out.” 1. Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadow in All Made Up, $20. 2. BareMinerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick in Posh, $20. 3. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Roach, $17. 4. Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Cream Lipstick in C-603, $22. 5. Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in Visionary Matte, $35.

ALTERNA-LIPS

The dark-lip trend got its start with fashion’s ’90s resurgence, but it was influencers like Lupita Nyong’o and Gigi Hadid who took it to the next level by stepping out in shades of blue and brown, respectively. “Those funky colors—I’m not going to pretend they’re for everyone, and they’re definitely not for everyday,” says Barose, who often does Nyong’o’s makeup. “It takes a bold personality to pull them off.” Los Angeles makeup artist Emily Kate Warren agrees: “Women who wear these colors aren’t concerned what others think—they’re confident and doing it for themselves.”

FLASH GLOW

THE ICON

Kate Moss knew how to do the dew back in 1995.

You can use highlighter to create two totally different effects: There’s the granolagirl, übercleansed, Bikram glow, and then there’s all-out Old Hollywood glamour. According to the pros, it all depends on your execution. Applied with a light hand all over your complexion, “luminizers give skin a sheen and an almost dewy, healthy quality,” says Warren. But up the wattage on the shimmer and dab it on strategically, and you get a cinematic effect. “It reminds me of the way movie stars in the ’20s and ’30s used makeup to mimic flattering lighting for the big screen,” says King of the strobed complexion. “Think about it—we’re basically all celebrities now, just on the small screen of our phones.”

TIP SHEET • The easy, subtle way to glow: Mix a few drops of a liquid luminizer like Algenist’s (above) into your moisturizer or foundation before applying it as usual. • For a dewier sheen, try cream highlighter. Stick formulas are the most forgiving, says Warren: “Just swipe a little on the high points of your face— cheekbones, maybe the bridge of your nose, your Cupid’s bow—and rub in with fingers.” • Powder formulas are the most dramatic, but “don’t get greedy,” warns Barose. “If you apply them all over, you look like a disco ball.” He likes to use the Laura Mercier highlighter (above) on cheekbones only.

LUXURY LASHES

THE INFLUENCER

Jane Aldridge (@seaofshoes) has opulent fringe to match her designer lifestyle. THE ICON

In 1967, Twiggy’s lashes weren’t real— but they were amazing.

TIP SHEET • Consider temporary lash extensions, suggests Barose. “But you have to commit,” he adds. “The minute they start coming off, go back for a touch-up; otherwise, it looks kind of crazy.” • To beef up your natural fringe, curl lashes and apply a volumizing mascara slowly, making sure to paint each and every lash (a magnifying mirror helps). Barose likes the double-ended Estée Edit mascara (below) because it has a small brush on one end to reach the tiniest hairs.

Ruth Bell at Jason Wu

• If you apply faux-lash strips, choose a pair that has clear, almost-invisible bands connecting the hairs (those with black bands at the base make you look like you’re wearing heavy liner, and that makes eyes look smaller, says Barose). Or apply individual, knot-free lash clusters. “They give you that feathery, luxurious look,” he says. 1. Tweezerman ProCurl Lash Curler, $22. 2. CoverGirl So Lashy! Mascara, $9. 3. D.J.V.

In this era of extreme beauty, lashes are front and center. “Nobody’s trying to pretend that having a full set of fringe from their inner corners to their outer edges is natural,” says Warren. “And if you comment on someone’s big, fluttery lashes, they’re usually like, ‘Oh, these? They’re not real, but aren’t they great?’” King says it reminds her of a beauty trend that was popular with French aristocrats in the 18th century. “They used to glue fake beauty marks in different shapes on their faces,” she explains. The implicit message: I’m a woman of luxury and leisure. After all, it takes time and money to look fabulous.

BOYISH BROWS

• To encourage hair growth, use a lash-enhancing serum on your arches, or groom them daily with a brow primer like Benefit’s (below), which has conditioning ingredients. • Skip the tweezers and use a brush or spoolie (it looks like a clean mascara wand) to groom. “I think straight brows look more tomboyish than high arches,” says Barose. “If you have high arches, brush hairs horizontally outward to encourage a straighter shape. If brows are already straight, brush hairs up.”

THE INFLUENCER

The thick arches of Cipriana Quann (@ciprianaquann) are #browgoals for thousands.

• Fill in sparse spots. “Pencil is easiest, but powder, pomade, or tinted gel works, too,” notes Barose. “Whatever you pick, apply it with feathery strokes— you don’t want perfectly defined edges.”

Actress Ali MacGraw’s feathery brows were key to her cool, casual style (here, in 1969).

TIP SHEET

When Glossier launched its tinted brow pomade about a year ago, it put a name to the arch zeitgeist: Boy Brow. Thick, fluffed-up arches are “a break from the traditional glamour constructs of the past,” says King. Warren agrees: “Isn’t it funny that for years we tried to get rid of extra hair wherever we had it and now it’s the reverse? It’s cool not to care about a few stray hairs.” Need proof of the cool factor? Just look at the long (and getting longer) list of bushy-brow proponents: actresses Emily Ratajkowski and Amandla Stenberg, models Estella Brons, Risa Bellak—oh, and someone you may have heard of named Cara Delevingne.

The new suites are totally gorge, and the brunch at Ê.A.T. is on point. Good eats: If you’re a foodie, Montreal is absolutely the place for you, but what often gets overlooked is how awesome the coffee-shop scene here is. My current go-to is Leaves Cafe (leavescafe.com) on rue de la Montagne. Fine art: I’m a major ballet fan and attend almost every presentation at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal (grandsballets.com). This fall’s rendition of Roméo & Juliette (October 13 to 28) is definitely a must-see. Spa haven: The Spa St. James at the Ritz-Carlton (spastjames.com) has an advanced oxygen facial that will completely change your skin (for the better, obvs). Night out: La Champagnerie (lachampagnerie.ca) has a menu of more than 100 different sparkling wines from all over the world—talk about indulgence!

The beauty crime? Indoor pollution, which can cause accelerated aging and even, gulp, split ends. The defense? Filters, freeradical-fighting serums, hair stylers, and face masks to combat the damage By Ning Chao

Air patrol

From wrinkles to brown spots, the visual effects of pollution on skin have been welldocumented. One study conducted by Olay researchers found that the skin of women living in polluted cities is 10 percent drier than that of those living in the countryside. “And our research shows the drier a woman’s skin is, the more it wrinkles over time,” explains Olay principal scientist Frauke Neuser, Ph.D. Pollutants also generate free radicals, which trigger inflammation in the skin, according to Wang. “When you have inflammation, that can lead to pigmentation and potentially degrade collagen, making skin sag and wrinkle,” he says. The thing is, pollutants such as ozone, smoke, and exhaust are also present indoors—alongside other contaminants, like smoke from fireplaces and candles (see “Burn

Notice,” p. 144), as well as so-called volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from new furniture, cleaning agents, and carpets. Your first line of defense is to ventilate your house and clean the air. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters remove germs, allergens, mold spores, odors, and up to 99.97 percent of microscopic particles from the environment, which means more oxygen, fewer allergies, and healthier skin and hair (see “Pure Genius,” right). You can even extend the air filtration to your car, if it happens to be a Tesla: The company now offers a $4,500 HEPA filtration system (dubbed Bioweapon Defense Mode) that has been shown to neutralize gasmask-level pollution in two minutes.

ONE STUDY FOUND THAT THE SKIN OF WOMEN LIVING IN POLLUTED CITIES IS 10 PERCENT DRIER. The second security measure? It’s what you put on your skin. “A product layer of any type, whether it’s moisturizer, sunscreen, or even makeup, will offer protection because pollutants will stick to this shield rather than diving into your pores,” says New York City dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe. If you want added insurance, consider using something with antioxidants, which scavenge the skindamaging free radicals produced by many pollutants. Clinical studies have shown that SkinCeuticals’ C E Ferulic and Phloretin CF serums both significantly reduce free-radical levels. And if you don’t feel like adding an extra step to your routine, there are new foundations, such as L’Oréal Paris’ True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous and Korres’ Wild Rose, that have antioxidants built in. Oxygenating moisturizers may also be beneficial, especially in winter, when we spend more time indoors with the windows closed and dry, centrally heated air pumping. While you could do like some über-rich city dwellers in China and order a $115 jar of air collected

ou’ve detoxed with green juices, decluttered your closet Marie Kondo–style, and switched to eco-friendly laundry detergent. Now there’s another step in the purity quest we all seem to be on these days. Antipollution may be the buzzword in beauty, but it usually applies to the environmental impurities of, say, a smoggy city street. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, however, the air in your home may be up to five times more polluted than what’s blowing around outside. “What we don’t realize is that airborne chemicals from a range of household products and building materials—like paint and varnishes—can linger in the home,” explains allergist and immunologist Dr. Bob Geng, an assistant clinical professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine. “These emissions can lead to things like eczema as well as premature skin aging,” adds Dr. Steven Q. Wang, cofounder of Dr. Wang Herbal Skincare. While this news may sound alarming, don’t freak out: There’s plenty you can do to mitigate the damage—and none of it involves sealing yourself away in a Contagionstyle clean room.

in the English countryside (yes, that product really exists), there are much more effective ways to revive your skin. Take Valmont’s luxurious new DetO2x face cream: It’s formulated with a perfluorocarbon molecule, which delivers oxygen deep into skin, and Swiss apple stem cells, which have a skinsmoothing effect thanks to high antioxidant levels. “When my patients’ skin starts to look dull, I’ve found oxygenating products can really help,” says Bowe. If you could stretch out the time between your hair color appointments and have fewer breakouts (as well as wrinkles) by making one change in your house—would you do it? Then consider a water filter for your shower. “If you have rusty pipes, they can leech copper into your water, which can take a toll on hair specifically,” explains Bowe, listing split ends and dull color as common complaints. Colorist Nikki Lee, co-owner of Los Angeles’ Nine Zero One Salon, has noticed the destruction firsthand. “Years ago, I went to New York for a week, and my hair went from light blonde to brown and was so brittle it was disgusting. I figured out it was from the water—the building’s pipes were old, so rust and iron were changing my hair color,” recalls Lee. With her business partner, stylist Riawna Capri, Lee developed the Raindrops shower filter ($95), which uses a six-step filtration process to remove heavy metals like iron, copper, chlorine, lead, mercury, and magnesium. She says her color clients notice a big difference when they start using it. Even if your pipes are pristine, the water itself could be problematic. “Hard water has

a high mineral content that may leave a scaly film on strands, preventing moisture from entering—resulting in dryness, brittleness, and color fading,” explains New York City hairstylist Orlando Pita. His new styling spray, Orlando Pita Play Atmos-Shield, protects hair with an invisible, weightless barrier featuring sugarcane-derived squalene and antioxidantrich amla oil. Mineralized water may be harsh on skin, too; every time you splash your face “clean,” you could be clogging your pores unintentionally. “Soaps and cleansers can mix with hard water and leave a film on skin, which may lead to acne, dry skin, and eczema flares,” warns Bowe, who recommends using a cleanser with a chelating agent, like EDTA. “These types of molecules bind to heavy metals and chemicals to neutralize them so they can rinse off the face,” she explains. And when it’s time for bed, slather on a protective layer of moisturizer or another product as an overnight shield. Dr.Jart+’s Every Sun Day Soothing Gel is great to use as a sleeping mask because it features magnetic technology that actually repels dust and contaminants from pores while hydrating and soothing skin with antiinflammatory aloe vera extract. Just apply a thin layer before bed and you’ll wake up with clean pores and smoother skin, ready to face your day—inside and out.

They may throw flattering light and smell delicious, but some candles have a dark side: They can emit airborne chemicals and pore-clogging soot. For the cleanest flame, Bee Shapiro, founder of the Ellis Brooklyn candle company, recommends beeswax or vegetable-wax candles instead of paraffin, which is “a petrochemical by-product that emits toluene and benzene.” She also suggests looking for candles with cotton or hemp wicks, and keeping them trimmed to a quarter inch to minimize smoke. Here, a few of our favorites that pass the test.

Infrared light from gadgets may both help and hurt skin

144 MA R I E C L A I R E .C O M November 2016

UV rays get all the attention, but infrared (IR) light—an invisible form of electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell phones and laptops—may also be harmful to skin. Ever notice how your devices heat up when you use them? That’s IR in action. “It’s a controversial topic right now, because some studies show that it can benefit skin, like in lasers and light therapies, but there are also studies showing it can trigger inflammation, wrinkles, melasma, and brown spots in the skin,” explains dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe. The good news is that if you can’t feel the heat, you’re likely not at risk for damage, so consider getting a handsfree device for your mobile and keeping your laptop off your lap. Plus, there’s a beauty product for tech lovers: SkinMedica’s Total Defense + Repair sunscreen contains antioxidants specifically tested to protect against IR.

IN HER OWN WORDS

“[Dior beauty creative and image director] Peter Philips taught me that you can double your lipstick as a cream blush. Grège, my go-to shade, is great for this.”

Natalie PORTMAN The Hollywood star keeps it old-school and uses lipstick—not social media—to boost her self-confidence

The actress, at age 12, as Mathilda (with Jean Reno) in The Professional, 1994

can still remember the smell of my grandmother’s makeup. She would spend two hours putting on her face every morning before she would let anyone see her. Despite this legacy, my first experience getting made up didn’t really involve makeup. It was for my first film, The Professional, and the makeup artist didn’t want to use much product on me because I was just a kid, so she would mix beet juice and rose water and apply that to my lips and cheeks. Now, I’m more of a lipstick person. When I moved to Paris two years ago because my husband took a job at the Paris Opera Ballet, I found it was more of a red-lip city than anywhere else, so I wore Dior’s #999, a bold, classic, matte red. It has all of that passion and seduction that you want out of a red lipstick. We moved back to Los Angeles this summer. Here, it’s obviously more playful and sunny, so I gravitate toward lighter, beachy colors like coral and pinks. For day, I like Dior’s Grège.

Portman takes the art of rocking a nude lip to the next level

Makeup makes me feel confident. I feel like if I’m put together in the morning, everything else follows and I have more control over my day. But as a working mother, I’ve learned to be comfortable with imperfection. Maintaining a work-life balance is a challenge for everyone. I personally stay away from social media because when you have a lot of attention on you already, privacy becomes the most valuable, luxurious thing, and it feels nice to just keep that little corner for myself. The idea of celebrity is changing these days, but I think it’s dangerous to think of yourself as a brand instead of as a person. I try to be true to myself, and hopefully that projects an image so people can understand who I am from afar. I recently played Jackie Kennedy [in Jackie, out this fall], which gave me some insight into her life. She was criticized so much for her style—[then] the public became obsessed with her style. But she didn’t try to bow to anyone’s demands. She had confidence and became a style icon, just by being herself. —As told to Ning Chao

AS I WAIT

FOR NICKI MINAJ IN HER SUITE ON THE TOP FLOOR OF THE TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL & TOWER OVERLOOKING NYC’S CENTRAL PARK, I’M STRUCK BY THE

commonalities between her and the Republican presidential nominee. Both are mononymous New Yorkers from Queens who have flaunted citrusy coifs, eliminated contestants on television (she on American Idol; he on The Apprentice), and brokered lucrative product deals. They also speak their minds no matter the consequences. When the Trinidadian-born rapper who spun gold without a silver spoon appears, she purrs to her publicist that she’s worried her glam team won’t arrive early enough to get her stage-ready for tonight’s performance for cable network Adult Swim’s upfronts at Terminal Five. “Oh, my God,” Minaj says when she notices me. “I look a hot-ass mess!” Actually, she doesn’t. Her skin is poreless without a drop of foundation. Her beyond-blonde hair hangs well past her waist. She possesses the beauty of someone of an indeterminate age with eyes fixed in a perpetual squint as if she were inspecting and questioning. At 5'3", the dominant rapper cuts a much smaller presence in person, compacted in gray leggings, a matching T-shirt, a Marc Jacobs denim jacket, silver Miu Miu sneakers, and a leather hat. Curled up on a plush velvet sofa, Minaj is direct, and her responses are unfiltered mini-essays without a request to go off the record. She’s the kind of figure to whom, when she speaks, the world tends to lean in and listen. She went viral for confronting Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards (“What’s good?”) for tone-policing her, schooled Taylor Swift on race and body politics, and inspired a generation of women to get theirs by rejecting pickles. (Look up “Nicki Minaj and Pickle Juice” on YouTube.) The fact that she doesn’t merely want but demands more for herself is the reason the world knows her name. I am distracted by the supersize diamond on her left ring finger—a 33rd birthday present given to her last December by her boyfriend of two years, rapper Meek Mill, with whom she’s sharing a mansion in Los Angeles. “I never would have thought that decorating would give me this much joy,” she says. “I decorated this entire room for Meek. I kind of felt like he was going to be there a lot with his friends. I didn’t tell him anything, and I just let him come and see it one day, and he was so happy.” Minaj beams a broad smile revealing a girl giddy in love, pleased by something as simple as creating a space for the guy in her life. She’s had to fight the impulse to incorporate pink—her signature hue—into every room. “I was like, ‘Would you mind if I put pink in the bed—’ and I couldn’t even get it out. He was like, ‘OK, no. No. No.’ I’m learning how to compromise,” she admits. “For every room that’s all about him, there are like three rooms all about me. I made [our master bedroom] beige, but we’re still getting that canopy. He just doesn’t know it yet. Having a canopy bed is my dream.” She can have as many canopies as she wants. The empire of Minaj, the sole queen on Forbes’ most recent Hip-Hop Cash Kings ranking (besting her mentor Lil Wayne with an estimated $20.5 million), stands on the 152 MA R IE C L A I R E .C O M November 2016

shoulders of an exacting, hands-on, self-taught mogul who understood early on that she had to do more than just sell music and go on tour. In addition to three multiplatinum albums—and a fourth on the way—there is the Freeform cable channel series she’s producing, Nicki, inspired by her life (in development); the movie roles (The Other Woman, Barbershop: The Next Cut); the clothing and fragrance (including her latest, Trini Girl) lines sold at Kmart and on HSN; and the stakes in Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service and the wine company Myx Fusions Moscato. “I don’t take my blessings for granted,” she says, “and I also don’t plan to stop working hard anytime soon.” Born Onika Maraj in Trinidad, Minaj moved to New York when she was 5 after her mother, Carol Maraj—who relocated to the U.S. for better opportunities—saved enough to send for her and her older brother. Settling the family in Jamaica, Queens, Carol steered Minaj toward education and Christianity. Minaj was a natural performer whose flair for theatrics earned the teenager a spot at the prestigious performing-arts high school LaGuardia on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, giving her a daily refuge from the poverty, drugs, and violence in her community. “Because I went out of my neighborhood to go to high school, I feel like my life was changed drastically,” she says. “I was introduced to a whole different world, and I met different people who were speaking differently, looking differently, and it forced me to open up my mind to lifestyles and people and cultures and all those things that I think are so important to learn at an early age.” There, she blossomed alongside Thembi Banks, a film producer and director, whom she met in drama class. “We had that edge to us that just showed through,” Banks says of bonding with Minaj, a fellow “girl from the hood” she affectionately calls “Cookie.” “She was from Queens and I was from Harlem, and we just had a connection … She was never shy about wanting the world and seeing it for herself. She had a fearlessness that I loved and a determination that was overwhelming.” That determination fueled her ascent from serving cheddar-biscuit baskets at Red Lobster and selling mixtapes to signing with Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment in 2009 when she was 27, after he saw her in The Come Up, a series of DVDs on rising artists. “Nicki built herself from the ground up,” says her manager Gee Roberson, who has worked with Jay Z and Kanye West. “For someone to make it being from a very small country is nothing less than incredible … The scary part about Nicki is that she is just getting started.” In the hypermasculine world of hip-hop, she’s learned to compete with the big boys. “I don’t need to read a book about [business]. I can look at someone’s career and just pinpoint the dos and the don’ts, and the one person I’ve

done that with for my entire career was Jay Z,” she says. “He did such a great job being an authentic street guy and a businessman, and I was like, Why aren’t there women doing that, taking the success from rap and channeling it into their empire? I felt like anything he could do, I could do.” Though she doesn’t call herself a feminist, she is the embodiment of a revelation Gloria Steinem made before Minaj was even born: “Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry.” “Nowadays, I feel like [young women] see marrying into money—I think that’s a big thing now. ‘Let me hang out at the basketball games, get a rich basketball player. Let me hang out here and get a rich this or hang out here and get a rich that,’” Minaj says. “I don’t want that to be a woman’s goal in life. I want your goal in life to be to become an entrepreneur, a rich woman, a career-driven woman.” Later, she says, “You have to be able to know that you need no man on this planet at all, period, and he should feel that, because when a man feels that you need him, he acts differently.” Echoing her famous bestie, Banks says, “She empowers young women to remain steadfast in their commitments to themselves to be great. She gives young girls—who come from places where they have to fight to be well educated, who have to fight for opportunities to travel and see the world and learn new things and to grow as people—hope. She says, ‘If I can do it, you can do it.’ [She tells them], ‘You need to focus on yourself to make it in this world—not boys, not hanging out—but home in on yourself and invest in yourself so that you can stand on your own two feet.” Independence is essential to every woman’s survival, but I push back against the superwoman narrative that pressures us to do it all on our own and ask Minaj, “Who takes care of you when you’re taking care of business?” “I think that that does take care of me,” she responds as if by reflex. “If I wasn’t on top of my business, I would be unhappy. It gives me happiness to make my own decisions and be the shot caller on my own career.” Then, she interrupts herself and turns to her faith. “I have a very close relationship with my pastor, and I speak to her probably more than I speak to anyone,” she says. “People probably wouldn’t think that about me.” Her breakup with a longtime boyfriend in 2014 coincided with the production of her most-revealing album, The Pinkprint, and that’s when Minaj found herself at her lowest point. “I was forced to be alone for the first time in 15 years,” she says. As she recalls in her song “Bed of Lies,” Minaj “couldn’t believe I was home alone contemplating overdosing.” It was at this pivotal point that she recognized she needed help. She flew her New York–based pastor to her home in Los Angeles to counsel her. “She really prayed with me,” Minaj says. “She was like, ‘You’ve got things to do, Miss Lady. You can’t be in this bed. You’ve got to get up and go. There are a lot of things you haven’t done yet.’ It was right there that I found all this strength. People don’t realize that [celebrities] go through things, too. We’re not exempt from the problems of the world.” One of those problems is the plight of people in struggling neighborhoods like the one where she grew up. In April, she sat down with President Barack Obama, his advisers, and artists including Alicia Keys, Common, and Janelle Monáe to discuss criminal-justice reform and Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, which focuses on improving opportunities for boys and young men of color.

“Most rappers are from poverty,” Minaj says. “We are from the inner cities. We don’t just rap about it; we lived it.” The importance of these issues sealed her bond with Mill, whom she began dating in 2014 while he was in jail for violating probation stemming from a 2008 gunpossession and drug-dealing conviction. (The two first collaborated on his 2013 song “I B On Dat.”) “We share stories with each other about how many young black women are losing the father of their child every day to violence, and how we don’t really shine a light on that,” she says. “We tend to not remember the black women who are mourning these men and who are thinking, Oh, my God, what am I going to tell my child now about where his father is, and the struggle it is for black women to then move on after they lose their husband or their boyfriend … The strong women in these inner cities often go unnoticed … no one really ever puts a hand out to them.” Another sticking point for Minaj is how some of her peers in hip-hop continue to tell these women they are not enough: “I’m so tired of black women feeling that when our men get rich, they’re going to leave them for a woman of a different race,” she says. “It wasn’t funny when Kanye [West] said [in his 2005 hit “Gold Digger”], ‘When he get on, he’ll leave your ass for a white girl’—and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn’t funny when he said it; it was the fucking truth.” A harsh truth she’s had to navigate is the double standard that exists for women of color in popular culture. She’s particularly irked by The Talk cohost Sharon Osbourne, who had praised West’s wife Kim Kardashian’s nude bathroom selfie by tweeting one of her own—after previously saying that Minaj’s booty-baring “Anaconda” single cover image in 2014 looked “like a cheap porno cover.” “When Kim Kardashian’s naked picture came out, [Osbourne] praised it, and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite,” she says. “So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it, but it was when a black woman did it? It’s quite pathetic and sad, but that is my reality, and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down.” Minaj’s willingness to remain outspoken in a business that prides itself on presenting an unbothered air is the epitome of realness. Surely it would be easier to pretend it’s all good rather than be dismissed as just another angry woman. “I wish I could be the token angry girl, but I can’t,” she says. It was Minaj’s frequent collaborator Beyoncé who, in “Formation,” advised women that the only way to slay detractors is to “always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper.” All Minaj has built in three decades—from sharing her grandmother’s three-bedroom, one-bathroom house with 15 relatives in Trinidad to becoming the architect of her own life on her terms—serves as evidence of her sweet revenge. Her unapologetic self-confidence in the face of criticism and controversy reminds me of her video for “Feeling Myself” featuring Beyoncé, which women—myself included—have used as an anthem for self-love. “It was such a moment for women,” Minaj says. “Every time Bey and I do something together, I see how women are inspired, and it has nothing to do with how we look. It has to do with how we are owning who we are and telling other women you should be the boss of your own career and the brains behind your life or your decisions or your art. I just love that feeling. It makes me so excited, too.” November 2016 MA R I EC L A I R E. COM 155

“The New Normal doesn’t make you feel trapped in a costume,” says Liya Kebede of Giorgio Armani’s latest collection of classic staples. “It allows every woman to be herself.” To Kebede— and the modern woman the collection is meant for—that means balancing a multitude of roles. The 38-year-old model is a mother of two, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. “It’s important for me to use the platform fashion has given me to empower other women and give back,” she says. “We all have the power to create change.” Her beach-chic label, LemLem, has brought jobs to East Africa (including in her native Ethiopia), where the clothes are made, and her namesake foundation has been supporting the training of midwives since 2015, providing health-care access to areas in Africa that need it most. Armani cast Kebede for his latest ad campaign for the collection, filled with fluid jackets, soft blouses, and loose, low-slung pants that are “meant to be easily paired so you don’t have to waste hours choosing.” (What better gift for the multifaceted multitasker than the one of time?) “Pieces like these perhaps aren’t noticed immediately,” he adds, “but they’re remembered after the woman wearing them has gone.” —Carolina O’Neill

THE LADY DETECTI

Cheat on your spouse? Lie on your Tinder profile? Moonlight as a sex worker? Don’t even think about it. These unlikely spies are watching By Abigail Haworth

Photographs by Jack Picone


Business is booming for Akriti Khatri, 31, who runs Delhibased Venus Detective, one of a rising number of female-run private detective agencies in India

kriti Khatri is on a stakeout in a bustling neighborhood in New Delhi. On this hot Sunday afternoon in August, shoppers are bargaining for clothes and household goods at open-front stores. Khatri buys a watermelon smoothie from a juice vendor and tucks herself against a wall to avoid the cars and motorized rickshaws clogging the street. The chaotic location is ideal. “It’s easy to blend in and secretly watch my target,” says Khatri, a private detective whose eyes, hidden behind sunglasses and a curly dark bob, are fixed on a nearby modern apartment block. “With luck, I will catch the love cheat on-camera coming out of the building with his mistress.” Khatri, 31, who exudes a mixture of fearless energy and sharp humor, is one of a growing number of Indian women taking the country’s maledominated private-eye industry by storm. She runs her own agency, Venus Detective, with offices in India’s capital, Delhi; Bangalore; and three other major cities. The sleuth and her team of 20 full-time, mostly female field agents launch daring undercover operations to expose illicit love affairs, dating fraud, corporate corruption, and other ills of modern Indian society. In the process, they turn traditional female roles upside down. “We often disguise ourselves as maids, vegetable

vendors, college girls, or cosmetics saleswomen to infiltrate homes and offices,” says Khatri, who rides a motor scooter during surveillance jobs. “It’s risky, but so far we’ve never been caught. Targets rarely suspect women of being professional spies.” Delhi-born Khatri opened Venus Detective in 2011 after learning the trade at another P.I. firm straight after college. A science graduate with an MBA, she was drawn to the profession “out of sheer curiosity,” she says. “I always loved collecting information about people. It was like a hobby. When I was a student, it took me 30 minutes to get across campus because I stopped to get the gossip from everyone I met.” Dubbed “Delhi’s Nancy Drew” by national newspaper the Hindustan Times, Khatri has seen demand for her services boom as the country modernizes at a breakneck pace. She receives 80 to 100 calls a week, mostly about matters relating to love and marriage. Many of Khatri’s clients are women who want to find out if their partners are cheating on them, or are keen to know if a prospective husband has any hidden dealbreaking habits. “Indian women are becoming much more independent with their own jobs and social lives, especially in big cities,” she says. “They don’t tolerate men who deceive them or who don’t meet their expectations.” Her client today, a woman in her late 20s who suspects her advertisingexecutive husband is having an affair with a colleague, is typical. The woman’s husband has started coming home late and always taking his smartphone to the bathroom. “She has a young child, but she says she’d

rather be a single mom than put up with an unfaithful husband,” says Khatri. “This view was unheard of in my mother’s generation.” Hiring a private detective not only empowers women to take control of their lives, she adds, it also helps them to avoid mistakes in the first place. Two female clients broke up with their respective boyfriends after Khatri discovered that one man’s math was so bad, he couldn’t count banknotes, and the other had lied about his family home having an indoor toilet (as she learned when she pretended to be lost in the neighborhood and asked to use it). For centuries, arranged marriages have been the norm in India, with each partner vetted by family members and local connections. The role of informal detective was often taken by barbers who traveled from village to village, gathering intel about a person’s suitability while cutting hair. “They’d find out whether the bride was respectable, whether the groom was financially stable, and whether both came from decent families,” says Khatri. But now, with couples increasingly

on the rise because of the ease of dating and messaging apps. “Love in modern India has become a war zone.” Fees for Khatri’s investigations run from around 25,000 rupees ($380) for a premarital check, which takes about 10 days, up to 500,000 rupees ($7,500) for complex cases that can span months, like corporate fraud or missing persons. Because private investigation is not a legally recognized profession in India—the authorities tolerate such work as long as detectives don’t break any laws, such as illegally obtaining phone or e-mail records—there are no identifying signs outside her office. Most clients find her via her website and newspaper advertisements. Venus Detective’s headquarters are on the third floor of a smartlooking office building in a business park in Noida, an industrialcorporate “mini-city” on the outskirts of the capital. In the large, airy room, Khatri’s youthful team of admin and technical staff wear preppy shirts and casual pants or dresses and sit in cubicles taking calls and monitoring investigations on laptops. “Everything is digital these days,” Khatri says. “To protect our clients’ Chetana Mittal, 31, privacy, we don’t keep any physical evidence lying around.” has gone There’s rarely any shortage of evidence. In around 40 to undercover as a maid and 50 percent of premarital cases, for example, the person a cosmetics Khatri is investigating has invented or concealed personal saleswoman to collect details—in the rush to join India’s increasingly prosperous information middle class, it’s tempting to fake a few things to meet the for clients right spouse. In infidelity cases, there are practical reasons to have hard evidence of wrongdoing. “In an arranged marriage, families on both sides are involved, and it’s difficult to divorce or separate without causing a major dispute,” she explains. “But if the client can say, ‘My partner has been unfaithful and here are the photos and hotel receipts to prove it,’ the families cannot argue with them.” Some also lie about their caste, India’s ancient social hierarchy rooted in the Hindu religion. “Caste is critical to some traditional families,” Khatri says. “I get many calls from parents who are worried their offspring are dating someone from a lower caste. Even if the couple is deeply in love, the family will stop at nothing to break up the romance.” Parents ask Khatri to snare their child’s partner in a “honey trap” to make it look like they are double-dating, or to fabricate evidence of a partner’s unsuitability. “I always refuse,” she says. “I draw the line at anything unethical.” Others deceive on a much grander scale. Khatri and her staff call these “OMG” cases. A recent example involved an Indian couple based in America. “The wife hired me to find out why her husband was spending so long back in India,” she says. “We discovered he had three other wives in this country, each with their own house and kids that he’d fathered.” In meeting on Facebook and Instagram and on dating apps like Tinder, another OMG case, a Delhi woman wanted to know why her live-in the demand for private detectives is skyrocketing.

The wife suspected her husband of of Khatri’s clients are men who want to check up on their wives and hiring expensive escorts when she was out of town. “I disguised myself girlfriends. Whatever the gender of her clients, she believes female private detectives have the upper hand. “Women feel more comfortable telling their as a frumpy maid, wearing mismatched clothes and gaudy makeup. The wife pretended to hire me to cook and clean for her husband problems to another woman,” she says, “while men think that I will understand the mind-set and behavior of their wives.” Baldev Puri, general secretary of the Delhi chapter of Tanya Puri, 23, is the the APDI, agrees. While exact figures for the number of youngest female private detectives don’t exist, women are joining the P.I. in the country profession in rapidly increasing numbers—and outdoing their to run her male counterparts. “They make excellent investigators, in own agency, Lady many cases far superior to men,” says the veteran detective, Detectives India, who has run his own agency for 30 years. “They are highly located in perceptive, they know how to get access in every situation, a suburb of Delhi and they’re very organized.” Around 15 member agencies of the APDI are owned and run by women, he says, up from “only three or four nationwide” a few years ago. He is such a champion of female sleuths that he encouraged his daughter to join the business. At 23, Tanya Puri is the youngest female P.I. in the country to run her own agency, Lady Detectives India. “I started working with my father from around the age of 15 and discovered I had a talent for details and observation,” says Tanya. She landed her first big case as an 18-year-old college student studying media and communications. “My father was asked to investigate a student whose parents thought she was seeing someone in secret,” she says. “It was easier for me to follow her without being noticed.” Tanya tailed the girl after classes on Delhi’s metro and by rickshaw, and was shocked to find that she was working part-time in a high-class brothel. “She looked the same as me, so I didn’t expect her to be involved in some kind of sex racket,” Tanya says. “It was an early wake-up call never to make assumptions.” Since starting her agency last year, Tanya has hired half a dozen female investigators. “We call ourselves the Girl Squad, because we are all the same age and very ambitious,” while she went away on a trip,” says Mittal. “In the morning, I’d get to she says. But, given that the work often involves being out late on Delhi’s work and discover unpleasant signs of extramarital activity on the streets, which are notoriously unsafe for solo women, Tanya always puts safety first: “We work in pairs at night, and sometimes with a male agent.” bedsheets and in the bathroom bin, as well as evidence of big parties.” Mittal keeps her work a secret because of her husband. “He’s very She is acutely aware of the problem of violence against women, and along with the usual extramarital affairs and background checks, she often takes traditional and wouldn’t approve,” she says. “He didn’t even like me working as a receptionist before we got married.” Mittal understands on domestic abuse cases. “We can’t help directly in criminal cases, but we the irony of deceiving her husband but says it can’t be helped. “I guess can provide photos or video footage that victims of violence can give to I’m a double-double agent,” she jokes. their lawyers to use,” she says.

ate one spring night in May 2013, Janet Lieberman, an MIT-trained mechanical engineer, and her then-boyfriend, also an engineer, were at a bar in Brooklyn trying to operate a sex toy they’d purchased to celebrate his birthday. She’d worn the vibrator around all day to mark the special occasion—her boyfriend had planned to use its remote control to pleasure her whenever he pleased—but their plan failed when neither of them could determine how to turn the thing on. “I felt so dumb because there were such simple instructions, but we just couldn’t figure it out,” Lieberman says. They finally gave up and threw the toy away. “If two engineers who design products for a living couldn’t figure out how to operate a vibrator that cost $160, what’s happening to other people who are buying these products?” says Lieberman, 31. “I thought to myself, I can make better vibrators.” By the end of the following year, she’d done just that, cofounding Dame Products, a company that bills itself as “smart women” who make “phenomenal sex toys.” In December 2014, Lieberman and her business partner, Alexandra Fine, proved they had the goods to back up that motto when their debut product, Eva—marketed as “the first truly wearable couple’s vibrator”—made crowdfunding history, raising $575,000 in less than two months on Indiegogo, more than 10 times their initial goal of $50,000.

Eva’s design—two flexible wings that tuck under a woman’s labia, stimulating the clitoris during penetration—was unlike anything on the market and was honed to perfection specifically with women in mind. “We make products for women,” says Lieberman, Dame’s chief technology officer. “Men buy our products, too, but they do so because they think women are going to like them.” That’s a revolutionary concept in an industry ripe for disruption. But even as mounting evidence has proved women need a little help reaching climax, the sex-toy industry has remained stubbornly maledominated, with its toys inspired by porn, modeled on penises, and largely marketed to men to use on women as a way of enhancing male enjoyment. “A lot of sex toys are missing the point if you look at what women say they get sexual pleasure from,” says Fine, 28, Dame’s CEO. She and Lieberman are taking a different approach. “What we’ve learned is, women want different things sexually,” Lieberman says. “So, how can we make the highest percentage of them happy?” One way to ensure a wide swath of women will find sexual satisfaction is to have lots of product options available to them. Which is why the two are now back in their lab, working on a second sex toy—the next in what they hope will eventually be a large line of women-focused devices. Their sophomore product, a finger vibrator called Fin, is being designed to maximize female pleasure, and when it launches on Kickstarter this month, Dame Products will be one product closer to accomplishing its mission of “making the world a happier place, one vagina at a time.”

ame Products is based inside a decrepitlooking, postindustrial warehouse, one of several companies stationed on the grounds of a former rope factory that sprawls across 14 acres of waterfront property in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood. On one of the lab’s dark-gray walls hangs a map of the female anatomy, along with some on-theme signs (including one that says good vibes) and black-and-white prints of burlesque dancers from Hollywood’s Golden Age. In a corner sits a sex-toy mannequin named Double Dennis, purchased for testing purposes during Eva’s production. (He was never used, though, because the women found him off-putting and his penis comically large.) Growing up, Lieberman never would have guessed her job would one day include sex dolls. Both of her parents are statisticians and her older sister majored in math, so it was no surprise when she, too, went into a technical field. In 2007, the New Jersey native graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and got a job as a mechanical engineer at Z Corporation. She went on to work at design firms Quirky and MindsInSync, before landing at MakerBot Industries in Brooklyn as a lead engineer on one of the company’s 3-D printers, which can be used to create everything from cup holders to hairbrushes. She was working there in 2013 when the faulty vibrator spurred her interest in making better sex toys. “Most of the time when you have thoughts like that, it’s not a realistic impulse,” says Lieberman. “But I’d seen companies being built. I was on the design side, but I’d also been involved with the manufacturing, been a quality engineer, and done a fair amount of project management. After a couple of months, I thought, Maybe this is realistic.” Around the same time, Fine, who hails from Long Island, New York, and has a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Columbia University, was living in Brooklyn and working at Babo Botanicals, which makes a wide range of organic products for children. Throughout her education, Fine had repeatedly learned about the “pleasure gap”—a term used to describe the fact that only one-quarter of women reliably

orgasm during intercourse and that, according to a 2009 study by Indiana University, just 64 percent of women reported having an orgasm during their most recent sexual event, compared with 91 percent of men. Fine was alarmed by those results and vowed to find a way to narrow the gap. She started thinking about how sex toys could help, given that several studies have found that 70 percent of women need clitoral stimulation to have an orgasm. “I felt like there was a clear lack of understanding of women’s needs among the products that were on the market,” Fine says. The women independently began attending networking events to pick entrepreneurs’ brains about getting their ideas off the ground, and kept hearing about each other. “People either thought that we were the same person or that we were already working together, because there aren’t that many young women in Brooklyn starting a sex-toy company at any given moment,” Fine says. “About the third time that someone mistook me for her, I said, ‘OK, do you have this girl’s contact info? I should just meet up with her,’” Lieberman recalls. The women met for breakfast in Manhattan’s West Village in June 2014 and bonded over their mutual goal over yogurt, granola, and bacon. They were especially excited about the opportunity in the market for their products. “The people making sex toys at the time weren’t people who got into the industry to champion female sexuality,” Lieberman says. “They got into the industry because they wanted something else to make money on in addition to selling porn. When that’s the root of the industry, you can understand why [products are made] without understanding what women want or need.” They thought the industry was ready for their innovations. “There’s been a recent wave acknowledging that women also have sexual needs,” Lieberman says. “When that culture shift happened, it created a great opportunity for women’s pleasure products. These are not gag gifts at bachelorette parties—these are products many women use every day.” Looking back on it now, Fine says, that breakfast was the moment the company started. Not much was discussed during the initial meeting—not even working styles or how they would interact with each other—but the women liked and trusted each other enough that they decided to build their dreams together. Fine says her parents were supportive from the beginning (“They were already used to me wanting to be a sex therapist, so … ”), but Lieberman’s parents took a little more convincing. She told her parents about her idea before she started the company (she describes it as a “coming out” process) and gave them veto power. They were “very anxious,” but ultimately, “my mom said her job as a parent isn’t to support me in following her dreams,” Lieberman says. “It’s to support me in following mine.” Now, they brag about her accomplishments all the time. “My parents know the values they taught me are the reasons why I wanted to start this company,” she says. “Consumers deserve to feel like the products they get are well-made and a good value.” Still, her “very Catholic” mother hasn’t told her church choir and worries she’d have to change congregations if they ever found out. Four months after Fine and Lieberman met, the Indiegogo campaign went live. The response was so huge and immediate that


neither of them had time for much else. Lieberman recalls being unable to process a recent breakup (she and her boyfriend split a week or two before the launch): “I remember telling myself, ‘A week from now, I will have emotions about this, but this week, I have to work.’” Within five days, they had hit their initial goal of $50,000. Then, the very next day, while Lieberman was out on a Tinder date, they hit the $100,000 mark. “I hadn’t even gotten the chance to drink champagne yet,” she says. The campaign ended in December and they ultimately brought in over $800,000—making Eva the top-funded adult product on any online fundraising platform to date. Fine and Lieberman scrambled to fill the 6,000 orders that came via Indiegogo. They didn’t have a lab of their own yet, so they holed up inside Fine’s dad’s office space on Long Island (he owns a cleaning business, which Fine calls “literally the least sexy company”). “We took over their conference room for six months,” Fine says. “Everyone in the office knew we were making vibrators and thought it was really funny.” They conducted user surveys and tweaked the prototype’s design during the day, and made calls to China (where the product is manufactured) to hammer out details at night. “At the time, Janet and I had only known each other for a matter of months,”

Once the Eva craze died down, Fine and Lieberman began thinking about Dame’s second product. By then, they’d moved into their lab in Greenpoint and hired five employees (they hired a sixth this July). They brainstormed as many ideas as possible, and the designers and engineers created prototypes of the most promising ideas. Within a few weeks, they had settled on creating a finger vibrator, after identifying the product category as on the rise and in need of innovation. They talked to sex-toy-shop owners, Eva users, and those who signed up to be testers on their site, asking questions like: How would you want to use a finger vibe? What features would you like it to have? What do you anticipate your main complaints would be? In early February, they officially started developing Fin. Assembling its parts was kind of like playing Tetris—they tried to put parts where they seemed to fit and tinkered with it until all the components really did fit. Each model was slightly different. Some were wide at the back and pointy in the front; some had the motor on top of the finger instead of below; some required two fingers instead of one. There were even designs that featured straps to secure the toy on the user’s hand. “You start out knowing the basic shape that you want, but not knowing what people like,” says Lieberman. “Some of the things that you think are going to work out don’t work at all.” But if someone with big

“THESE AREN’T GAG GIFTS—THEY’RE PRODUCTS WOMEN USE EVERY DAY.” —JANET LIEBERMAN, COFOUNDER, DAME PRODUCTS

Fine says. “I remember feeling so appreciative that she was there to pull all-nighters with me.” After the crowdfunding campaign ended, they began selling Eva exclusively on their website for $105; since then, they’ve sold around 35,000. One of their early users was Meredith, 30, who volunteered to test Eva along with her boyfriend of three years, who had attended MIT with Lieberman. “It’s a totally different kind of product,” says Meredith, who wished to be identified only by her first name. “For me, it was really strong—stronger than anything I’d experienced before.” Another customer, Kylie Stone, 43, purchased Eva to use with her husband, who is nearly a foot taller than her. Because of the height difference, most sex toys are awkward for them to use. “I’m so lucky,” she says. “With Eva, I don’t have to worry about that anymore.” She calls the toy “revolutionary,” praising Fine and Lieberman for listening to what women want, and credits the toy for taking her sex life to “a completely different level.” A workstation is littered with the electronic components that will power a Fin prototype

hands and someone with small hands both say they like the same feature, she adds, then it might be a winner: “You keep closing in until you find something most people can enjoy.” Eventually, Fine and Lieberman narrowed down the field from 20 shapes to a handful of winning prototypes, one of which they called Alpha 1. Its small body (about the size of a makeup sponge) was made purposefully unobtrusive so it doesn’t get in the way during sex. This concept, the Dame founders say, is key to increasing pleasure in the bedroom, as the toy gives women the clitoris stimulation they need without distracting from the intimacy of the moment or being intimidating to men. They made 15 prototypes—each costs $250 to produce—and sent them out to testers, ages 20 to 65. Once each Alpha 1 is returned by the first batch of users, the products are bleached and covered with fresh silicone to go out to additional testers. Within a few weeks of testing, Fine and Lieberman learned there was division between women who liked using Fin with the tethers looped around both fingers and those who wished it were tetherless. As a result, on the final model, the tethers are detachable. They’ll continue this process of listening to women and tweaking the design based on their feedback until the last possible moment before the toy hits Kickstarter this month. And that, ultimately, is what sets Dame apart from other sex-toy companies: Its work isn’t just about building more sex toys—it’s about creating a world where female sexual pleasure is king. For Kylie Stone and other users like her, all of the tedious revisions Fine and Lieberman make are worth it. “It’s amazing to have a sex toy that actually delivers what it says it’s going to do,” Stone says. “It’s allowed me to enjoy sex so much more, so, from me to Fine and Lieberman, thank you so much.”

LOVE & SEX

MY BOYFRIEND’S SECRET LIFE

S

teve* and I had been dating for six months when I found myself alone in his apartment, watching snowflakes whirling in and out of the red-orange light of the giant, neon New Yorker hotel sign that blazed outside his bedroom window. He had gotten last-minute tickets to a basketball game and was running late to meet me, but he’d called earlier to tell me that his roommates would let me in and that I was welcome to use his laptop while I waited. My plan, as I opened the computer, was to look for secondhand furniture on Craigslist. When I got to the website’s home page, most of the links were blue, signifying that they’d never been clicked on. But under the Personals heading, the words “Casual Encounters” were purple. As in, previously visited. That was an innocent discovery. The not-so-innocent one came next, as I weighed my options. I’d always been anti-snooping—even people in relationships deserve their privacy—but if Steve had been casually encountering other girls all this time we’d been together, how could I not investigate? What if a silent STD was ravaging my reproductive system while I sat there debating the ethics of looking through my boyfriend’s browser history? Once I clicked on the history, it took me less than a minute to find what I was looking for. That afternoon, the laptop had been used to visit a Hotmail account I’d never heard of, and someone had sent an attachment with the curious file name “NakedSteve.jpg.” I searched the laptop for that file and found a folder. There were hundreds of images in it. It’s a testament to how totally unprepared I was for any of this that my first befuddled thought, as I squinted at the tiny thumbnail photos, was that I’d uncovered a giant, secret stash of pictures of pink rocket ships. My second thought was that if Steve wasn’t cheating on me, then he was almost certainly gay. Whatever his reason for having that many dick pics on his hard drive, it couldn’t be good. *NAMES HAVE BEEN CHANGED.

The man I was dating may have been a little boring, but I thought he was sweet and safe and totally “husband material”— until he turned out to be Anthony Weiner 2.0 By ADELINE K. FROST*


I called him immediately. When he answered the phone, the roar of the crowd at Madison Square Garden nearly drowned out his hello. “You need to come home right now,” I said. He must have guessed the reason why, because all he said was, “OK.” I didn’t find out the whole truth that night. Yes, Steve said, he’d visited Craigslist’s Casual Encounters, but only because it was funny. The dick pics? A prank by his roommates. And the secret e-mail account? “It’s not mine! I can’t even get in!” he exclaimed, rapidly typing and then showing me an error message: Your Password Is Incorrect. There were real tears in his eyes as he swore that it was all a crazy misunderstanding. He would never lie to me. I had to know that, didn’t I? It was my first experience with the “It wasn’t me!” defense, and, incredibly, I found myself nodding along. I told him I loved him, which I did, and that I believed him, which I didn’t—but thought I might be able to if given time. I would just convince myself that despite the evidence, his version of events was the truth, the way some people choose to believe in a 10,000-year-old Earth. As it turns out, faith is not my strong suit. Despite my determination to move on and Steve’s attempts to gaslight me (“You’re killing our relationship with your mistrust,” he said, when I tried to discuss it again a few days later), I couldn’t unknow what I knew: I was being lied to. The knowledge made me crazy. We fought constantly over the next month, as I became a person I didn’t recognize: paranoid, suspicious, fearful, miserable, and as desperate to learn the truth as I was to pretend it didn’t exist. Finally, I hacked into the Hotmail account and read every single message with a mix of fascination and horror. At any given moment of our six-month relationship, my boyfriend had been juggling half a dozen e-mail exchanges with different women, describing to each one, in wildly lascivious detail, what he was going to do to her with his throbbing, giant NakedSteve.jpg. Some of the threads went on for weeks, the conversation evolving from graphic sexual scenarios to mundane hellos and how-was-your-days, then veering off again into X-rated territory. Sometimes he told them his real name and sent photos of his real junk; sometimes he used a pseudonym and a picture of someone else’s penis. Occasionally, they’d dance around the possibility of meeting up. As far as I could tell, the cheating never crossed the line into meatspace. No dates were made; no addresses were exchanged; none of these women ever touched Steve’s body—or even saw his face. I couldn’t understand it. I knew that there were people out there who lived secret lives on the Internet, but I’d always assumed that those people did it because they had to. Because they were lonely, unwanted, isolated, friendless, and (most especially) sexless. Steve

was none of those things. It wasn’t just that he was cute and successful, with good friends and a loving family. It was that he was a nice guy—bland, amiable, even a bit boring. He was the guy people described as “husband material.” He was safe. It was why I was dating him; our relationship wasn’t exciting, but it was refreshingly free of unpleasant surprises. How could this guy, of all guys, be a secret, serial catfish? I was desperate to understand, and so I begged Steve for honesty and promised I wouldn’t judge him. I asked him to explain to me why I shouldn’t feel betrayed. But his response was always the same. “It’s none of your business!” he would scream, refusing to meet my eyes. “It was a fantasy!” It took me longer than it should have to realize what he meant by “fantasy.” The boyfriend I knew only ever wanted sex in the missionary position; he would shush me if I made too much noise. The guy in those e-mails, by contrast, was confident, arrogant, and fantastically filthy. I would have liked to meet him. “You could have told me,” I said. “I would have exchanged sexy e-mails with you.” His look of horror said it all. “You’re my girlfriend,” he said. “I can’t use that kind of language with you.” I didn’t know whether to laugh or scream. I was furious because I felt cheated-on and his admission seemed to give me proof. But it was almost comical: For Steve, the women didn’t matter at all. He didn’t want to be with someone else; he wanted to be someone else.

MY FIRST BEFUDDLED THOUGHT, AS I SQUINTED AT THE TINY THUMBNAIL PHOTOS, WAS THAT I’D UNCOVERED A GIANT, SECRET STASH OF PICTURES OF PINK ROCKET SHIPS. Shortly after that realization, I ended the relationship. Partly because of the lies, but more so because of the truth: This was why Steve had always seemed so uncomplicated. The nice-guy persona I’d found so comforting was nothing but a mask, a cover for a man whose discomfort with himself ran so deep that he couldn’t bear to confront it. In the e-mails he sent me after our breakup, Steve bemoaned that he’d “ruined” me. He was sure that I’d spend the rest of my life bitter, fearful, and deep-combing every future boyfriend’s hard drive for a secret stash of dick pics. In low moments, I wondered if he was right. But in the weeks that followed, I discovered that just as Steve was never truly himself with me, I hadn’t been myself with him, either. Before I got the idea of settling for a “safe” romance, I had been a girl who trusted easily, fell hard, and braved heartbreak because I knew from experience that I could handle it. Somewhere in the choice to be with Steve, I’d lost that fearlessness. When I left him, it came roaring back, along with the realization that I didn’t want a nice guy. I wanted someone sharp, smart, passionate, and confident—and genuine and vulnerable. As it turned out, I already knew that man. We’d met at a corporate softball game months earlier and had become close friends since, bonding as much over our friendly disagreements as our shared love of baseball and books. I married him the following year. I had never met anyone who made me laugh as hard, feel as loved, or think as deeply—and I understood, in a way I hadn’t before, that those things made us a surer thing than any safe choice ever could. My nice-guy boyfriend turned out to be a self-loathing liar, and my attempt at a predictable romance turned out to be a farce. But I remain grateful for what it taught me: that a true connection, the kind worth having, can be complicated and messy, but it is, above all else, real.

if someone catches us taking a photo or being somewhere we shouldn’t, we just play dumb and giggle and say we made a mistake. It works every time.” In fact, the job involves long periods of waiting when nothing much happens, especially during surveillance. Tanya says that while her father was training her, he made her stare at the wall for hours at a time to strengthen her ability to remain patient. Regardless, both Khatri and Tanya say they prefer direct human observation to using some of the high-tech options on the market. Perhaps reflecting how nervy modern India has become, local websites advertise numerous spy gadgets, including cameras hidden in bottles of air freshener, soda cans, sari fabric, and car-key remotes. But the only equipment either of them uses regularly is a smartphone to take photos and videos, and record conversations. They occasionally use hidden cameras inside people’s homes with the permission of their clients. Despite spending their days on the frontline of India’s murky world of romantic lies and deception, both women say they still believe in love. Tanya is engaged to a Delhi lawyer who is proud she’s a private detective. “He thinks it’s exciting and boasts about it to all his friends,” she says. As for Khatri, she and her banker husband have been married for three years. “When I was single, my grandmother told me to lie about my job to find a husband. She said that being a private detective was too threatening to men,” she says with a laugh. But Khatri knew from experience that lying was unwise. “He has no problem with my job,” she says of her husband. “I even try to recruit him to help me with financial fraud cases when he has time.” In the near future, Khatri hopes to open India’s first school for female private detectives to train more women in the art of sleuthing. “Some people in this country think this is not suitable work for women,” she says. “We’re proving them wrong. It’s the kind of job that shows women can be anything we want to be.”

NOVEMBER 2016

HOROSCOPES

This month has Scorpio playing devil’s advocate (stir things up, Willow Smith), Capricorn breaking out of her shell (you got this, FKA twigs!), and Taurus reaching out (to happy results, Jemima Kirke) By E R IC F R A NC I S C OPP OL I NO

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

While challenging ideas that others hold dear, you’ve also reassessed your own beliefs, which has played a part in building your confidence. You no longer need to be in a comfort zone—if something you choose is truly right for you, then those around you must accept that fact. This will help you grow and develop like few other things. If you’re direct, sincere, and proper in questioning others, they’re likely to respond well, especially if you have a workable plan of action. POWER DAY: November 7

Sagittarius

(November 22–December 21)

People or circumstances you thought could never work together—old and young, serious and freewheeling, traditional and future-oriented—will yield unexpected results. If something is unprecedented, that’s a sign of its potential success. Powerful alchemy is working behind the scenes, and it will reveal itself in these unusual mixes of energy and people. Wanting to do something different calls for new approaches to what may be very old puzzles. POWER DAY: November 27

Capricorn

POWER DAYS BASED ON PLANETARY ALIGNMENTS. ZODIAC SIGNS: GETTY IMAGES

(December 22–January 19)

Your sign has a dual reputation: one for being reserved and cautious, and another for being bold and brave. Lately, your intrepidness has surprised even you, and there’s no turning back. Sometimes it’s necessary to push back against the world and get people to create room for you. Remind yourself that you exist, that you have desires, and that you seek accomplishment and fulfillment. These things are made real in action, not in contemplation. Courage is a muscle; flex it. POWER DAY: November 23

Aquarius

(January 20–February 18)

You’re having an impact, reaching further and wider than you imagined possible. That much you can trust. You’re a person with a mission—one close to your heart—so let nothing stop you. Do yourself a service by having complete faith in what you’ve set out to accomplish. This may not be the easiest road, but finding out how thick people can be is leading you to devise original ways of getting your message across. POWER DAY: November 9

Pisces

(February 19–March 20)

This year has been about making substantial gains on the career front. You’ve set your mind to this goal, and you’re making progress. Yet as the Grateful Dead sang, “Without love in the dream, it will never come true.” You want your dreams to come true, so include the people you care about in your aspirations. Solicit their views and honor your collaborators like the vital partners they are. There’s a sense of abundance activated through mutual agreement in the air. POWER DAY: November 17

Aries

(March 21–April 19)

Progress means change. When progress happens quickly, it can be unsettling. Yet given your potential, it would seem that “settling” in any sense of the word is the last thing you want. You’re in the perfect position to take advantage of this restless, unpredictable moment. Circumstances that might work against other people are opportunities for you, though you must be willing to embrace the opinions of others to taste success. POWER DAY: November 2

Taurus

(April 20–May 20)

Keep the lines of communication open in your relationships. It’s easy to pass this off or think that someone else should be responsible. Being intimidated is not an option. Claiming lack of experience does not help you when experience is the very thing you’re looking for. You’re being called to serve as a facilitator of human connections both in your personal and professional affairs. This will require focus and mindfulness—and will be worth it. POWER DAY: November 12

Gemini

(May 21–June 20)

If for some reason you’re feeling bored or overwhelmed, bring more soul into what you’re doing. You might be saving that for some future scenario, yet it’s your own life-force energy that will get you from here to there. Your expertise and vision are needed where you are, right now, even if you don’t always feel appreciated. By rising above every situation, you will see that each seemingly small, loving gesture contributes to greater strides. POWER DAY: November 15

Cancer

(June 21–July 22)

When you see a brilliant three-minute music video or clever one-page ad, remember that it took months of effort and the talent of many people to pull it together. Then consider your own evolution in the same light. To obtain the outcome you want, concentrate your resources and blend artistic prowess and passion with patience, persistence, and hard work. The good news is that this combination of factors is especially potent now, and you’re most of the way there already. POWER DAY: November 14

Leo

(July 23–August 22)

Only you can allow yourself to be free. You don’t need anyone’s permission, nor will it be helpful. The line between free and unfree involves trusting yourself. You have no more important task at this time. You don’t need to be fearless exactly, but rather know how to make decisions and proceed despite any anxiety you might feel. Hope is one thing, though you might keep in mind that there are no guarantees. Life is far more exciting without them. POWER DAY: November 21

Virgo

(August 23–September 22)

Recent months have come with one inner revelation after the next, and you’re learning to take a positive approach to who you are. You’re not the sum total of your self-critiques but someone with many skills who must not be afraid to make mistakes to get things done. Therefore, count any errors as a sign of making headway. Put everything to work for you, and be audacious about asking for any assistance you may need. POWER DAY: November 18

Libra

(September 23–October 22)

Upcoming developments in your life will more than compensate for any struggles you’ve been through lately. If there is such a thing as luck, you have it on your side. But you need more than that. You must be the master of your own motivation and take action based on what you know to be true. When you harness your knowledge and insight, you achieve solid results. Have conviction in what you’re feeling and what you feel inspired to do. POWER DAY: November 25
