It’s been five years since we put out our last Americana Issue, fronted by a flag-painted Ke$ha. It was a carefree image that speaks volumes about the era in which it was made, and how much the country has changed since. With a tyrannical new presidential regime and daily national crises, we began this year asking ourselves the same question as many Americans: How do we move forward? This query was perhaps most eloquently answered by our cover star, Lana Del Rey, who introduced her much-anticipated return in February with a simple statement on social media, “All you need is ‘Love’” (a reference to her then new single, dedicated to her fans). What way forward is there other than with compassion and hope for the future? Along with her politically leaning new album, this is the subject of Del Rey’s conversation with Stevie Nicks for our cover story, beautifully captured by Steven Klein and Robbie Spencer. As Nicks points out, their lengthy chat could have filled our whole magazine. It wasn’t that long ago when women had to fight to make themselves heard, as evidenced in our exploration of female characters in iconic films of the 1970s. Actresses like Jane Fonda and Gena Rowlands set the tone for the ongoing fight for equal rights, and we’re sure the fictional characters they played would have been thrilled to witness the most recent New York Fashion Week, where a battalion of American brands, including Diane von Furstenberg, Mara Hoffman, The Row, Gypsy Sport, and Public School, made political statements with their Fall 2017 shows. Their sentiment of resistance defined the season, making it only natural that it would form the basis of our Fall Preview issue. Who better to model the collections themselves than a girl proving that the American dream is as present today as ever? Plucked from the swampy waters of Lake City, Florida, Grace Elizabeth is destined for stardom—and not just for her radiant beauty, but for her shining personality as well. Not since Linda Evangelista have we seen a model so able to transform in front of a camera. Speaking of American beauties, 2017 has seen the continued meteoric rise of supermodel Bella Hadid. Earlier this year she used her public platform to proudly announce that she was raised Muslim—a brave decision considering the Islamophobic climate fostered by the current powers that be. With the help of Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele and Terry Richardson, Hadid channels the unadulterated joy of the ’80s in two American style mainstays: denim and diamonds. With its sense of complacency gone, a new generation of creative visionaries has stepped up to the plate. Just look to “The New New York,” by Sølve Sundsbø and Nicola Formichetti: From the kids keeping New York City’s vibrant club heritage alive to the curators propelling the cultural conversation, each individual is taking their frustration and turning it into art that makes it clear our freedom cannot be taken away so easily. Could anything be more American? MR. V

Mixing motifs in fashion is a common occurrence, but “Victorian meets dirty, grungy sex” would be considered pretty wild for most designers. Not so, however, for Dsquared2’s Dean and Dan Caten, who called upon the aforementioned references for their Fall 2017 runway collection and corresponding advertising campaign shot by Inez & Vinoodh. “The idea of mashing up worlds is what we do,” explains Dan. “We don’t want to have any rules.” The duo developed a coed show to create one, singular house identity and thus the Catens “took some things from him for her, and some things from her for him.” Think oversize sweaters and coats paired with prairieesque floral dresses for women or bedazzled, tiara-imprinted baseball caps with smart suit separates for men. Inez & Vinoodh shot the campaign the same day Dsquared2 presented their runway offering at an old glass factory in London in order to convey a backstage, documentary feel in their ads. They used women like Sasha Pivovarova, Natasha Poly, and Joan Smalls for the catwalk and their images. “Inez & Vinoodh have a very relaxed coolness about the way they shoot, a kind of modern way of looking at things,” says Dan. “Having two different people shooting at the same time—he gets an angle, she gets another, then you compare them both. I think the sensibility becomes different. It is straightforward and beautiful.” We couldn’t agree more.

IP THE ICONS AND PIONEERS WHO PAVED THE WAY FOR FUTURE ARTISTS.

CELLULOID HEROINES

The women of Film Forum’s “New York in the ’70s” series represent a country straddling the line between nervous breakdown and feminist breakthrough. Iconic representations of masculinity feature prominently in Film Forum’s epic summer series, “New York in the ’70s.” Shaft, Mean Streets, Midnight Cowboy, Taxi Driver: You’ve likely either seen them all or lied and said you did. Each of the 44 titles in the program offers a different take on the city during its heyday of garbage, graffiti, and gangs, but together, they represent a nation on the verge of nervous collapse. By 1970, the growing upheaval of the late 1960s had reached a breaking point, with the youth-driven sexual revolution and counterculture movements—like second-wave feminism, civil rights activism, and anti-war crusades—pushing into a confused and threatened mainstream. Add fervent efforts to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, the legalization of birth control, and Roe v. Wade, and suddenly you’ve got a society where women had new options for taking control of their lives, whether the men were ready for it or not. And nowhere is this more evident than when you zero in on the Film Forum program’s female characters. 1970’s eye-opening Diary of a Mad Housewife— directed by Frank Perry from a script by his wife, 38 VMAGAZINE.COM

KLUTE REALLY SHOULD HAVE BEEN NAMED BREE IN HONOR OF JANE FONDA’S BRILLIANT CHARACTER

BOX OFFICE EARNINGS FOR THE WIZ WEREN’T SO WONDERFUL, BUT DIANA ROSS’S TAKE ON DOROTHY WAS A REVELATION

AUDIENCES FELL IN LOVE WITH JILL CLAYBURGH IN AN UNMARRIED WOMAN

Eleanor Perry—serves as a fitting kickoff for our generational tour. Attesting to the movie’s impact, Carrie Snodgress snagged an Oscar nomination for her role as Tina Balser, a lost young woman painfully unsatisfied by her preordained role as mother and wife. “I wish I could understand what’s the matter with you,” her husband (played by Richard Benjamin) sighs, before enumerating her many physical flaws and complaining about her cooking. “You’re Mrs. Jonathan Balser,” he sternly reminds her as she lies in bed depressed. “My wife is a reflection on me!” She tries to expand her life by having an affair, but her lover turns out to be just as selfish and dismissive, leaving her stuck in the quicksand of feminine submission. What is a woman like Tina, raised to define herself through men, to do? The haunting ending, in which she endures a frenzied berating for daring to speak up about her problems during a group therapy session, foretells our current culture of online trolling. A year later, director Alan J. Pakula’s Klute offered viewers a professional alternative to housewife: call

girl! As star Jane Fonda later wryly observed, “Working in Hollywood does give one a certain expertise in the field of prostitution.” But she claims the film as one of her favorites, noting, “In it, I expose a great deal of the oppression of women in this country.” Fonda’s sexually liberated Bree Daniels is an aspiring actress uninterested in marriage, which leaves her with two practical options: She can remain penniless while suffering through demeaning auditions, or she can create her own roles via the different personalities her johns request and earn enough to support herself. She favors the latter. When Donald Sutherland’s detective, John Klute, shows up to solve the mystery of a missing client, even the strong-willed Bree is tempted to go straight. Audiences debated whether she should settle down, but there’s an even more fundamental question. This is Fonda’s movie to such an obvious degree that it earned her an Oscar for Best Actress. So, why is it named after the guy who tries to save her? Elaine May was one of the few women working behind the camera at the time, and she’s represented

here by two distinctly different movies, also from 1971. She wrote, directed, and starred in the sweetly funny A New Leaf, which boasts a subtly progressive plot. May plays a workaholic botanist who inspires gold-digging, layabout husband Walter Matthau for the better. But she also collaborated on the depressingly retrograde Such Good Friends, directed by Otto Preminger. Dyan Cannon stars in this ugly comedy about Julie, a wealthy wife and mother who’s jolted out of her stifled complacency when she discovers her husband has been sleeping with her friends. Her solution? Hook up with their spouses. Unfortunately, Preminger shows no more respect for his heroine than the movie’s men do, and Julie’s eventual liberation feels bitter and false. “Elaine May wrote a great screenplay,” Cannon later complained. “He took a piece of beauty, and screwed it up.” It’s worth noting that May used a pseudonym rather than take credit for this one and Cannon swore she would never work with Preminger again. Faye Dunaway is equally ill-served by Sydney Pollack’s 1975 thriller Three Days of the Condor. It’s

FAYE DUNAWAY AS NETWORK’S RUTHLESS TELEVISION PRODUCER

“In [Klute], I expose a great deal of the oppression of women in this country.” —Jane Fonda

a supporting role and she’s never allowed to forget it. The film dismisses her with a casually violent chauvinism, represented by her kidnapper turned boyfriend (Robert Redford). Fortunately, Dunaway got her due— and a much-deserved Oscar—the following year, thanks to Sidney Lumet’s strikingly timeless satire, Network. Dunaway’s proudly unsentimental television executive is a revelatory contrast to so many on-screen women of the era who were defined entirely by their gender. It’s not that her character, Diana, rejects her femininity or tries to be masculine; it’s that she’s simply true to herself. And though she turns out to be monstrous, there’s something fiercely thrilling about her unapologetic hunt for power. It was also Lumet who, in 1978, sent Diana Ross down the Yellow Brick Road to personal freedom in The Wiz. Though a critical and commercial failure, the modernized musical takes a generally optimistic approach toward its anxious heroine’s tentative liberation. For this newfangled Dorothy, the concept of home is a twist on the period’s fixation: finding one’s self.

Director Paul Mazursky and actress Jill Clayburgh made further strides toward feminine fulfillment in 1978’s era-defining dramedy, An Unmarried Woman. For much of her career up to this point, Clayburgh had been stuck in what she called “boring little wives and girlfriends” roles, but An Unmarried Woman propelled her—and the titular concept—to the forefront of popular culture. At the beginning of the film, Clayburgh’s Erica has everything she’s supposed to want: an adoring daughter, an attentive husband, and a fancy Upper East Side pad. So, when her husband leaves her for a younger woman, she’s bereft. Until, much to her surprise, she’s not. With the help of some wisecracking girlfriends she comes to realize that—and it’s hard to overstate how radical this idea once was—she can be happy on her own. All of which brings us to the decade’s end: 1980’s Gloria, written and directed by John Cassavetes and starring an unforgettable Gena Rowlands. Working class and proudly single, Gloria embraces her solitary,

self-made existence. But when her neighbor’s son is orphaned, she’s forced to make significant changes to her life plan. Cassavetes’s evident affection for his brash heroine may reflect the fact that she’s played by his real-life wife, and his devotion to her performance extended beyond the camera. Recalling the film’s debut, Rowlands said, “To hear 1,800 people clapping their hands in unison is glorious. I was so thrilled that I turned around to John—but he wasn’t there. And I knew what he had done. He wanted it to be my moment.” But they both get credit for turning Gloria into a multidimensional badass: a woman who makes no excuses and suffers no fools, who initiates her own car chases and wields a gun like a gangster. What’s more, she’s so immune to manipulation that her acts of love become symbols of strength. Yes, she’ll eventually expand her life to create a family. But at every turn and in every way, she lives her life on her own terms. It’s such a simple idea, but one that—maddeningly—still feels revolutionary.

CULTURAL REFLECTIONS THROUGH THE LENS OF MUSIC, FILM, TELEVISION, BOOKS, AND ART.

BILLIE EILISH Singer Billie Eilish fell into music after, quite literally, falling out of dance. A series of injuries (a strained groin, growth plate, and ankle) took her out of her first competition just days before she was to hit the stage. “My body is not a friend of dance, which is unfortunate. But it gave me a lot of time to do other things, which has been both good and terrible.” The good came with her debut track, “Ocean Eyes,” a song that has permeated Spotify playlists everywhere. If you haven’t heard it, your friend has heard it, and its origin circles back to her ill-fated sport: “That song happened because one of my dance teachers knows that I sing and write with my brother. He asked if we could do a song for one of the dances. He actually choreographed the [“Ocean Eyes”] dance video.” At only 15 years old, the L.A. native writes lyrics that sound well beyond her years, but not without the fantastic imagination that comes with being young. Her contribution to the 13 Reasons Why soundtrack, “Bored,” examines the numbness of unrequited love and her most recent track, “Bellyache,” is about being a serial killer. “It’s really fun to write as a character or in a place you would never be. You don’t have to be going through something to write it,” she clarifies for the concerned. “I’ve got a lot of stuff like that.” This fall, Eilish will set out on a headlining tour, and you can bet that it will have plenty of on-stage choreography. But first, she’s releasing her debut EP, on which she’s been hard at work with her collaborator/ brother Finneas. “We get along really well. Of course, siblings always have problems with each other—everybody has problems with everyone—but we have similar qualities and taste, and we just get each other.”

FROM TOP: ALANA, ESTE, AND DANIELLE HAIM

HAIM

The sisterhood of rock returns with Something to Tell You. It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Alana, Danielle, and Este Haim, the triad of long-haired, California-raised sisters better known by their rockand-roll moniker, Haim. After storming onto the scene in 2013 with their critically acclaimed debut album, Days Are Gone, the trio spent their time on the road, doing what they love most: playing shows. “We all just want to play until our fingers bleed and blood comes out of our ears,” says Alana, the youngest of the three. “We really just love playing, so when Days Are Gone came out, we had the opportunity to tour the world with each other. I never thought we’d be to half the places that we’ve been to. We’ve been to Iceland!” When Haim’s tour finished, they returned immediately to recording music. “We didn’t want to take any time off,” offers Alana. “We went straight into the studio. And when I say studio, I mean our parents’ house. We just dug in and started writing for the next record. We sat down in our living room, where we wrote the bulk of Days Are Gone, and started over. We really wanted to be in a familiar place, to get back into the mind-set of where we were when we left. Our mom was making us PB&J sandwiches again, slicing up apples. We worked every day since we’ve been back.” “Coming off of three years of touring we really felt we were the tightest we’ve ever been as a band, and we really tried to utilize those experiences,” says Danielle, the middle sister and lead vocalist. The result is the group’s second studio album, Something To Tell You. Early releases like “Right Now” (which came with a Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video) and “Want You Back” revealed that the girls really did pick up right where they left off, building on the signature sounds and themes they introduced with their first record. “Something to Tell You is about communicating with people,” says Alana. “We’ve always been really bad at communication. It’s something to do with the times we live in. You have all these different means of communication—you can email, you can text, you can call...all these things—and yet you can’t tell anyone how you actually feel. You’re always in your head.” “My sisters and I try to communicate through the music,” adds Este, the eldest. “That’s how we’ve kind of been able to therapeutically express ourselves, but then when it comes to it being out in the world, how does one communicate in 2017? How difficult is it? How easy?” While they may not have all the answers, one thing is abundantly clear: With Something to Tell You, these ladies have mastered their particular mode of speaking out.

MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL

As a producer and star of The Deuce, the actress brings her heart and soul to the new series.

Hopes loom large for The Deuce, the new project from The Wire’s creator, David Simon. Set at the dawn of the porn industry in the early 1970s, the series stars Maggie Gyllenhaal as Eileen “Candy” Merrell, a nononsense prostitute and source of inspiration for other ladies of the night due to her refusal to work for a pimp. Times Square features prominently in all of its seedy retro glory, James Franco plays twins loosely based on a pair of real-life skin flick entrepreneurs, and it will premiere September 10th on HBO. (Of course.) For Gyllenhaal, the role of Candy was rich with possibility, but before signing on, she needed a promise from Simon: “I said, ‘You have to show my character’s personal desire and that has to be in juxtaposition to the sex she’s selling,’” she recalls. To ensure the requirement was met, she also came on board as a producer. “I basically said, ‘You’re going to need my body, but you also have to take my mind.’” The show is the better for it. Gyllenhaal conducted deep research into the world they bring to life: She visited a porno set, read books, and spoke with educator and former prostitute Annie Sprinkle. “[As a

prostitute], your sense of sex and your sense of bodies, it completely changes,” the actress says. “You’re like an expert in the way that you become an expert at something that you do all day, every day. It must really deeply shift how you see sex and relate it to your own life. The nice thing about Annie is that her mind is totally intact and inspiring, and Candy is the same way. She has a mind, and I think her work is sometimes really hard for her, but she’s not destroyed by it.” The respect and care that Gyllenhaal brings to Candy is both touching and a welcome reassurance that The Deuce will continue to develop its female characters beyond the usual perspective viewers are offered when it comes to prostitutes. “You never get the one-plus-one-equals-two of how Candy ended up there, which I appreciate,” she comments. “It’s much more about watching somebody grow into something else. It’s exciting watching a mind get magnetized and woken up.” JOSHUA LYON

ILANA GLAZER The fourth season of Broad City takes on Trump’s America.

Ilana Glazer talks exactly like Ilana Wexler, her freewheeling, weed-loving, polyamorous character on Broad City, the genius show she cocreated with friend Abbi Jacobson. The similarity isn’t so much in what she says, though. It’s how the two Ilanas both speak: with a rollercoaster cadence and words that come out ready-made for italics. “It is literally so good, it is wild,” she emphasizes of the show’s fourth season, which premieres August 23 on Comedy Central and features guest stars like RuPaul. “We had a bizarrely fortunate experience where our schedule was pigeonholed into this certain time frame because Abbi and I were both doing movies. [After working on the scripts], we took a hiatus, and in that hiatus, the fucking election happened.” Glazer and Jacobson had made their support for Hillary Clinton clear when the former candidate briefly appeared on season three, strutting like a boss at her campaign headquarters and winking at the girls as they hyperventilated with joy. “We had prepared the scripts for a different fate,” Glazer deadpans. They scrambled to rewrite, but the news didn’t affect the overall story arc. “It was this resistance tone that the show embodies,” she explains. “We’ve always had that. But I think we [used to think], Well, we’re still little white girls, and there was a certain and necessary humility to the show. Whatever shame anybody carried about having this incredible platform— as women, too, it has made such a big difference that we have this platform—whatever mixed feelings we had melted away, and it was just a spear being sharpened and sticking into the heart of what we have been getting at all along.” Just the sort of fighting words we love. With fictional Ilana and Abbi going up against Trumpian politics, they join a long list of artists using their craft to speak out against the current administration, but they’re bound to be the ones that make us laugh the loudest.

SPANISH EYES

Oliver Peoples is opening its first store in Spain just in time for their 30-year anniversary, and the luxury optical outfit incorporated the region’s history and beauty into the venue’s design. “When I started working on the colors, I put together a mood board that embodied the Spanish culture,” says creative director Giampiero Tagliaferri. “Among them there were two paintings of Pablo Picasso that I particularly loved. One is The Old Guitarist, where a brown guitar is the only warm accent on top of dark shades of blue. In Young Acrobat on a Ball, the warm nuances of pale rose are predominant on top of gray and blue accents. Thus, our Madrid boutique is a mix of warm walnut, dark blue, and antique rose in contrast.” Expect to find classic Oliver Peoples frames, like the lightweight M-4, in updated colors like cool baby pink and soft gray.

L.A. artist Matt DiGiacomo was only 19 when Richard and Laurie Stark, the founders of Chrome Hearts, first approached him about working with the company. “I grew up with their daughter,” DiGiacomo remembers. “I wasn’t some artist; I was just some punk kid that they knew about.” Still, the Starks saw talent in the now 26-year-old, and enlisted him to enhance their ever-evolving, edgy aesthetic. His latest design for the brand is a limited-edition line of mouthy shades imprinted with laser-cut teeth, aptly dubbed “Chomper.” The sunglasses come in six colors, from candy-apple red to a sweet blush, and feature Carl Zeiss lenses with a five-layer antireflective coating and 24k gold mirror. “The coolest thing about Chrome Hearts is keeping that classic, kind of fucked-up style, but transferring it into this beautiful piece of art that you can wear on your face.” PR

THESE GIFTED RISING STARS ARE EARNING THEIR STRIPES IN HOLLYWOOD. PHOTOGRAPHY HART+LËSHKINA FASHION JOHN COLVER TEXT MAXWELL WILLIAMS

Eiza González, 27, is keeping quiet about next year’s Alita: Battle Angel, the Robert Rodriguez-directed, James Cameron-produced cyborg story based on Yukito Kishiro’s classic manga. “I don’t think I can tell you anything,” the Mexico City-born actress says, holding her finger to her lips. It’s a valiant effort, but there’s a lot of information already out there. “People know the cast, they know the story if they read it: it’s this dystopian world. I got to work a lot with Christoph [Waltz] in my scenes, and with Rosa [Salazar, who plays Alita]. I mean, if I was Tree Number 45 in the background of a James Cameron film, I’m okay with it.” She did, however, play a major role in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series for three seasons. (Rodriguez himself brought her Stateside to star in it.) She’s also a substantial character in Baby Driver, the heist movie from

Edgar Wright currently in theaters, in which a young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) can only put the pedal to the metal when he’s listening to music on his headphones. “The soundtrack’s killer,” says González, who has released albums as a pop singer. “We listened to the playlist at the same time as we were reading the script, so it was a character in the movie. It was interesting to watch how Edgar perfectly blended music with action. It’s like Reservoir Dogs, or what James Gunn did with Guardians of the Galaxy, because everything’s to the beat of the music.” González emphasizes her point by snapping her fingers to an imaginary beat. Or maybe not so imaginary—her career does sound pretty harmonious.

The Nickelodeon show 100 Things to Do Before High School is all about facing challenges head-on at a very young age and its 16-year-old star, Isabela Moner, takes that theme to heart. Not only did she kick off her career on Broadway at just 10 years old, but Moner also skipped two grades and has already begun college courses with the hopes of majoring in psychology. Oh, and she also plays the ukulele and knits. As if all that weren’t enough, Moner recently finished filming alongside Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro for next year’s Soldado, a sequel to the hit thriller Sicario. “I predicted Benicio would be really introverted,” she says about breaking the ice with her famous costar. “He seems like a full-on Scorpio because he has this mysterious aura about him. But he’s not; he’s an Aquarius. He said, ‘A lot of people think I’m a Scorpio.’” Moner, whose hair was shorn short for the movie,

now calls the actor a “fatherlike figure,” a term she also uses for Mark Wahlberg, with whom she stars in Transformers: The Last Knight. “It was challenging physically and sometimes emotionally to just keep up with everyone else, traveling around the world,” she admits. “It was shot in Phoenix, Detroit, and all around London and Wales, too. We got to go to cool castles and historic monuments, including Stonehenge. They blew it up [for the movie]. People got pissed because they thought it was the real thing. But another had been built down the street, and they blew that one up. There were articles about it the next day that were like, ‘Who do they think they are!?’” We predict that soon, no one will be asking the same of her.

DREAMS UNWIND Lana Del Rey muses with collaborator and self-proclaimed “witchy sister” Stevie Nicks about the forces that shaped her anthemic new album— and her very own lust for life. Photography Steven Klein Fashion Robbie Spencer

“It’s just time,” whispers Lana Del Rey on her end of the telephone. “Time has brought me here.” When Del Rey returned with “Love” this year—the first song from her fifth album, Lust for Life, out July 14—a tonal shift was immediately apparent to anyone familiar with the singer’s notoriously dark discography. Beginning with her first record, Born to Die, Del Rey’s previous four releases have been rife with references to ill-fated romance, tragedy, and betrayal. This song, however, resonated with a new note: hope. In the accompanying video, Del Rey serenades a generation of kids who are quite literally reaching for the stars, cooing lines like, “The world is yours and you can’t refuse it” and “Don’t worry baby” (the latter being a nod to the 1964 Beach Boys song) as she beams from ear to ear. Time itself is an ever-present theme in her work, though how she interacts with it has changed on her new album. With Lust for Life, she revisits sounds and visuals from her early work with a mature perspective while bridging the past and the present both personally and politically. “Coachella—Woodstock in My Mind,” a song that draws parallels between two musical gatherings set against times of conflict, is a perfect example of this. It is only fitting, then, that the inquirer on the other end of the phone line is Stevie Nicks, fairy godmother to Del Rey’s genre of enchantingly romantic pop rock, who was on her way to becoming the voice of her own generation when Woodstock took place nearly five decades ago. As it turns out, time—and a series of seemingly unrelated events throughout the courses of their lives—is also what brought these two kindred spirits together.

LDR You know it is so crazy that you’re asking me that because I was thinking you would actually love to move into the “O.” SN Well, the reason I picked the “W” is so that I could have an A-frame place, with a big, high ceiling. So, now I’ve decided that if I’m going to live in the “W,” then we’re going to be like witchy sisters, so I have taken on a new name: Marina Del Rey. But wait, it gets better! You know the little Yorkie we brought to the studio? Her name is Mana. She’s gonna be our witchy Yorkie and her name is gonna be Mana Del Rey. LDR [laughs] Oh my God. It wouldn’t be right if we didn’t have a little witchy guard dog. SN So, let us start here on your new record. But let us first touch on the fact that your first record was called Born to Die. Now this [record] is Lust for Life. In between that, what is it that affected you enough to go from Born to Die to Lust for Life? Because Born to Die is pretty dark and Lust for Life is pretty light. If you have a lust for life, that’s a pretty strong statement. LDR Yeah, they’re complete opposites, and it’s funny because when I chose the title, I didn’t think about it right away. It was the title of the first song I wrote for this record. But there are so many things that have gotten me to the point that I’m at now. One of them is just time. And because I do write everything myself, (CONTINUED ON PAGE 71)

“We’re the ones that are here to lighten, to lighten life, to light the lanterns and the little fairy lights, and try to keep people going. We have to have hope. We have to believe that this will all end up okay.” —Stevie Nicks

I just wanted to chronicle how I was feeling honestly, in the moment, for each record. So, I had a lot of stories that I wanted to tell that I hadn’t told yet up until this point. And now, through the last four records, I got out a lot of those stories and a lot of those feelings, and for the first time, I’ve caught myself up to real time. And now, I’m at this place where I feel like I’m really present, and when I’m reading the news, I’m really reading it, whereas before I was a little bit in my own head. So, there’s definitely been a feeling of freedom and lightness being in the present moment. That brings on that lust for life feeling, when you don’t have all of those feelings about the past weighing you down. I remember an interview that you did once where you said, “Around every corner there’s an adventure waiting to happen,” and I’m kind of in that zone right now. I just feel like whatever each day brings me is something that I need and I want. It’s just time. Time has brought me here. SN The way that we write is like we’re writing a diary as our songs go. If I listen to all the songs from Bella Donna, and then I listen to all the songs from Wild Heart, all the songs from Rock a Little, and then I get to The Other Side of the Mirror…I was just thinking about this one song I called “Doing the Best I Can (Escape from Berlin).” It goes, [begins to sing] “It’s all right, baby, I’m doing the best that I can.” I named it that because of this idea of escape. Something horrible was going on in Berlin, and I was also finding my way. I was in a drug-filled fog at that point, fighting for survival. I look back on it and go, You were really trying to survive in 1989. And then I actually went to rehab in 1994 to get off that horrible tranquilizer, Klonopin—from there, I start watching my life come back around, starting with a record I did called Sweet Angel, which was about the aftermath of rehab and coming back into the real world. And from then on, my path started to go up. And if I had not written all those songs, even reading all my journals from that time, they wouldn’t have really told the story, but the songs really told me the story of how bad that whole thing was. And I could watch, through the songs, my life start to come back to me. I think that we put out this running commentary on not just what’s going on in our lives, but what’s going on in the world at the same time. It’s a parallel thing. So, I see you doing the same things as I did. LDR It’s a delicate balance because you’re chronicling your own story and then you’re also reflecting back what you see. It can take work not to let your world get too small, so that you’re still in both worlds. You’ve got your world with your own inner dialogue and your own narrative and the way that you write, and then there’s everything else. It’s funny, it’s been a minute since I’ve gone through my records, but I did do it recently and I hear so much of my own self and my own stories, but I don’t get as much of the outside world as I thought [I would]. This record is really different. When there were the women’s marches, I was writing about that. There was enough space in my mind to really absorb everything. I think I was very much in the mix of culture in California over the last five years, but it feels good to feel more connected to a wider world.

SN I think we’re all much more connected with what’s going on right now. LDR That’s true. Regardless of where someone is at personally, the current landscape jolts you into being present, if you’re not crazy. If you’re a normal person, you’re suddenly aware and watching everything. SN And you are getting up every day and waiting to find out what new thing has happened. I have never been that way before, ever, until the last two and a half years. LDR It’s a very different time for everybody. Because there is something new every day that you read and you’re like, Oh my God, is that real? SN My mom used to always say to me, “You’re on a mission here. People out there who are hurting or are sad or have something horrible going on in their lives, when they walk into your house of love or your house of music, you are going to take them on your own little adventure that’s going to pull them out of their life for a minute. And hopefully, when they leave you, they’re going to take a little bit of you with them and they’re going to feel better the next day.” LDR I love that. SN I think as songwriters right now, there’s a lot of songs I’d like to write that wouldn’t be very nice songs, but I’m not going to do it because we’re not going to help anybody by doing that. Then we’re just going to be in with the masses and we’re not going to be above the fray. Write your songs, but remember that we’re the ones that are here to lighten, to lighten life, to light the lanterns and the little fairy lights, and try to keep people going. We have to have hope. We have to believe that this will all end up okay and that we’ll all end up okay. Because if we don’t do it, then who the hell is gonna do it? LDR You’re right, there’s no other way. As far as I’m concerned, there’s really not another way to sensibly think about it. I was never a huge self-editor—I wrote songs and then I felt like, Okay, well that’s that. And now, I’ve found in the last two years that I’ve really been editing some of the language of some of the songs in light of the political landscape, [because] I don’t want to be a part of anything that adds to that negativity. SN And your record, do you have favorite songs? Do you have ones that have your biggest messages or ones that you think are the most helpful to all the people that love your music? All the old women like me and the little girls that are listening? LDR I knew that the first song I wanted to put out was “Love” because of everything you and I have been talking about so far. It’s just the age-old thing: love is all there is. And I really was feeling that way. I made a lot of records for myself, chronicling my own stories, and I’ve played so many shows now, I’ve seen all the same kind of kids and grown-ups coming to the shows, and I really wanted to make a record for them. And then, I’ve been friends with Abel [Tesfaye] from The Weeknd for a long time, and I knew I wanted to put the title track, “Lust for Life,” out second because we have so many mutual fans and I knew they would love it. And then “Coachella—Woodstock in My Mind” I wrote on my way home from Coachella when things were getting hostile

between North Korea and the U.S., and all those failed missile launches, which happened the day after the first night of the festival. I feel lucky to be able to speak my mind through music right in the present moment. I think one of my favorite tracks on the record is called “Yosemite.” The chorus is [begins to sing] “We did it for fun, we did it for free, I did it for you, you did it for me, we did it for the right reasons.” SN I love it. LDR And that’s been the theme of my record: being in touch with what it takes to do things for the right reasons. All the actions that you need to take beyond just the words and all the decisions that I knew I wanted to make this year. And that song is special because it’s really a song about surrounding yourself with people who put their art and love first, who do it for the right reasons, not just for the money. And I have a couple of songs, like “God Bless America,” and another song called, “When the World Was at War We Just Kept Dancing,” which is about what we’ve been talking about: trying to stay positive, and just believing that things are going to be okay. And if it feels like they’re not going to be okay, we’ll try and make them okay individually and then together. SN I have not heard all these songs. LDR I want to play them for you the next time I see you! And I’m so proud of the song that we did, “Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems.” I just love your performance on it. The people reading probably don’t know that you know my longtime producer Rick Nowels from high school, basically. SN I’ve known your producer since he was 13 years old. LDR He loves you so much, you know. SN I do. It’s because we’ve been through so much together. My friend Robin [Anderson] died of leukemia and her brother got this terrible brain tumor, so Rick, Lindsey [Buckingham], and I are the survivors of those five people. And then, Rick went on to be this totally famous producer and songwriter. He started with me in 1985 on “Rock a Little,” when Jimmy Iovine dumped me and the record into Rick’s lap and said, “Goodbye, good luck.” LDR Which is so full circle because he ended up being the head of Interscope, which I’m signed to. There are so many full circle moments. SN I think all of these little things, in a really fairy tale way, lead me to you and lead you to me in a strange witchy way. It’s set up, like all of these things that happened with my friend Robin, and her brother, and Rick, and everyone moving down here, me being Jimmy Iovine’s girlfriend from 1980 to 1984, then him giving the record and me to Rick, basically saying, “Here, take them both and go.” All of this led to me meeting you and singing on your record. The butterfly’s wings flap in Africa and something is achieved by that butterfly across the world. That’s how this story started, I think. LDR I don’t know if you said it in the same interview I mentioned earlier, but at some point you said that sometimes you wonder, Does anyone even notice? Sometimes you wonder when you put something out, (CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE) VMAGAZINE.COM 7 1

“Every little thing that each person does in their individual life, even when it feels like it’s not a big decision or not a big move, matters. Just being open to beautiful things happening creates them.” —Lana Del Rey

Does anyone even notice? But it all matters. Every little thing that each person does in their individual life, even when it feels like it’s not a big decision or not a big move, matters. Just being open to beautiful things happening creates them. SN That sentence was about how sometimes over the last 10 years I would say, “Does anybody really notice that I’m a really good singer now? How much better my voice is than it was 20 years ago?” You have a beautiful voice and I’ve already learned things to add to how I sing from you. Working on your song has changed me forever because I’ve learned from you. We are witchy sisters and that’s it. That’s where “Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems” comes from, because we are trying to ride above all the problems and have hope in everything else, but it’s still a world filled with problems no matter how hard we try to change it. LDR That’s what that song is about. It was such a special moment. It just goes back to my favorite song on the record, “Yosemite,” and doing it for the right reasons. Here we were in the studio, and when Rick and I were talking about who the other singers should be on the record, you were the only person we could both think of because of your intention and [how] that always comes through in all the music. That really closed the door on the record in the right way. It was the perfect last moment, so thank you for that. SN Well, I am so happy that the butterfly wings flapped at the perfect time and it made it happen because I think that, in our lives to come, we’ll be able to work on many more songs together, because you know I don’t just want to sing with anybody. I just want to sing with the people that I think can make me better and make something that’s better than both of us singing by ourselves. That’s the only reason for solo artists to sing together. LDR Amen to that. SN You know, I think I told you this, but as I travel around the country [touring], I do get to sit down in between [shows] with my friends and hold their hands and laugh about the past, and my one friend that I wrote my first song about—the “I’ve loved and I’ve lost” song I told you about—his name is Steve. I always dedicate the song to him because I was so crazy about him when I was 15 and a half; my parents gave me this guitar and I wrote this little song about him. And I can honestly say that I was as in love with him as I have ever been in love with anybody. LDR That’s such a beautiful thing to say. I feel the same way. Obviously when you’re at different stages in your life, things hit you harder, or just in different ways, but the way I love has always been the same. I don’t know if that’s just wholeheartedly or maybe you’re only attracted to a certain kind of person, so when that type of person comes around, you really feel it, but when these 15- and 16-year-olds are going through heartbreak, I really feel for them, because it’s real. SN It’s totally real. And what I was going to say to you is that it’s funny, because this guy knows it, and I know it, and his wife knows it, and it’s fine because it doesn’t mean anything except that real love never dies. LDR It’s making me smile hearing you say that. Because

that’s what makes life beautiful. Just having that open heart and letting it be exciting in the moment, just having that energy between two people. SN Every time I see this guy he goes, “You need to come and visit us because we don’t have a lot of time. We’re both in our 60s, and time doesn’t go on forever.” So, I’m living in the moment. I just jump on a plane and I go and do this, and I go and do this, and I come back and I do this. And I’m like, Why don’t I get a day off? But the thing is, if you stop, you stop. LDR I know. It’s such a big decision when you decide to become an artist because once you’re in it, you’re in it. And then there is a certain level of momentum that you want to keep. SN It’s a very big commitment. You know, Lana, my dad used to always say about me, “She’s never going to get married.” And I’d look at him—I was in my 30s—and I’d go like, “Why would you say that, Dad?” And he’d go, “What you do is too important to you. And you are never going to be the kind of girl to have somebody say, ‘You can’t,’ or ‘You’re not going to go back on tour, are you?’” LDR Do you think that the fact that he said that switched something in you and made you think, I’m not going to get married? SN I think that my dad knew me really well. And for me as an artist, I was always going to want to follow my muse. And that muse was writing songs and going on tour. And so for me, I tended to say, “Well, I’m not going to be able to [get married]. I will have love affairs and I’ll meet many great men in my life, but I probably won’t commit to a relationship.” Look at me. I’m 68 years old and I just finished 48 shows—two-and-a-halfhour shows—which were preceded by 220 three-hour Fleetwood Mac shows. What kind of relationship could somebody like me have? LDR You know what, though? There’s billions of people in the world, but there are a handful of people that have that special, strong relationship with their own muse. For some people, it’s the biggest part of their life and the biggest relationship: following that energy, that muse, and the serendipitous twists and turns of life. The amazing thing, too—and not just with romantic relationships—is when you find other people who know exactly what that life looks like, you know? That it’s just not going to be straight and narrow. It’s such a blessing when you run into people who don’t color within the lines, that do the same things you do. SN I want to add, having said all that, I would never believe that it is not possible that coming right around the corner is the man of my dreams, at 68 years old. It’s possible, and I accept the possibility of that completely. LDR A hundred percent. And you know, life is short, but life is long, too. And there are so many things for everybody that have yet to come. SN Because after everything we’ve talked about, if we can honestly say that love never dies, if my heart can still flutter when I see my boyfriend from when I was 15 and a half, I cannot honestly say that there is no chance for real love in my life somewhere in the next 15 or 20 years. Because I believe that there’s always that

possibility. I never want people to think that I’m some cold woman who thinks that love may have existed all those years ago when I was younger, but doesn’t exist in my dreams now, because it does exist in my dreams now. But I’m also really good not having it because I’m not lonely, I’m not bored. I have so much to do that I can hardly get three hours of sleep. LDR You have a beautiful relationship with yourself. SN I do. And I never get tired of it. I know people who are bored stiff, and that’ll never be me. I could never be bored in this world. Because of what we do, whether you have a relationship or don’t have a relationship, you balance it. I have to say that there have been a few men in my life that have liked what I do, and have liked my friends, and have liked the fact that I like to stay up late and sit at the piano and light the candles, and were happy to lay on the couch with a book while I was doing that. They were few, but they were there, they did exist. And sometimes, I thought that the great loves of your life are the ones that just make you crazy, and say they’re coming to your house and don’t show up, and the phone doesn’t ring, and you just want to kill yourself. And then there are the ones who actually just dig what you do and who you are, and you put them in the second category of great loves. And then the nutcases of your life are the ones that were in the first category of your great loves, but they’re the ones you could never have lived with! LDR Absolutely. There are two different types of lovers. There are the crazy ones and then there are the ones who are really there. SN Exactly. And I still know all of my loves—all of them. I’m like Catherine Deneuve in The Hunger with all the vampire boyfriends. LDR [laughs] I can’t picture you getting into a relationship with someone who, on some level, doesn’t have an extremely strong connection to you or a strong commonality that wouldn’t span decades or eras. I’m still dear friends with my first boyfriend, and we didn’t have it all in the moment, but he was the world’s nicest guy and he’s still in my life. And that’s been the same with a lot of my boyfriends. I feel like, for me, it wouldn’t make sense to get involved with someone who I didn’t think could be either some type of really close confidant or someone who just really got me on some level. SN I think you’ll find, as years go by, that some of those men will matter to you more down the line, because they’re the ones who really seem to know you. So, it’s good. Lana Del Rey, I think we’ve filled up their entire magazine by now. LDR You’re amazing and I can’t wait to see you. Maybe it’ll be when you move into the “W.” SN That’s definitely going to happen soon, like next week. LDR That’s the dream. SN That is our dream and we make dreams come true, so it’s going to happen. I can’t wait to see you, too. I hope when people read this interview they know that kindred spirits find each other along the way and that love never dies.

SAY GRACE

As her career morphs from girl most likely to girl most wanted, Grace Elizabeth takes Fall looks for a spin. Photography Nathaniel Goldberg Fashion Tom Van Dorpe Everyone’s wild about Grace Elizabeth, and for good reason. At only 20 years old, she has the modeling skills of an industry veteran. She blew us away with both her masterful posing techniques and infectious charm at our Fall collections shoot, so we called her up a few days later, after she’d returned to her hometown in northern Florida, to get to know her better. She answered the phone in a singsongy voice that did little to disguise her gravelly Southern drawl (“Hellooo, it’s meee!”) before divulging that she was sitting on the porch, just enjoying the sunny day, and yearning to go fishing—about as far from high fashion as one can get. Her entry into the modeling world wasn’t particularly glamorous, either. She got her start on the runways of a local mall. “There’d be wedding expos and they would dress us up in sequins and fake eyelashes,” she remembers, laughing. Yet her transition to an international, in-demand talent was seamless, and it turns out that her secret is refreshingly simple: trust. “No one’s going to post an ugly photo of you,” she says. “Make the faces, yell at people, and the pictures will come out. You just have to not feel embarrassed.” The thing is, it’s pretty much impossible for her to miss a frame. By way of her raw, unhinged talent, she sets herself apart from the rest. In some ways she fits the model archetype. And in others, she doesn’t. That dichotomy—that she’s both otherworldly and utterly mortal—is why we love her, and why this is just the beginning. So we’re calling it now: For all intents and purposes, Grace Elizabeth is the next supermodel of the world. LANDON PEOPLES

“The contrast of black and white never grows old because it can be expressed in endless variations. This season, working with solid blacks and whites, or with traditional patterns, I’ve seen amazing effects: effects that are visually very strong, and sometimes ironic, disproving the cliché that this pairing is merely classical.” —Giorgio Armani GRACE AND TREVOR WEAR CLOTHING EMPORIO ARMANI GRACE WEARS SHOES GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI NECKLACE ERTH

“The formation of star constellations explodes in embroideries on the jacket and dress. The moon—which influences the tides, births, seasons, and personality—is the key element in this collection. This age-old practice of astrology, so dear to Christian Dior, consists of reading the sky to predict the future.” —Maria Grazia Chiuri GRACE AND CHARLES WEAR CLOTHING DIOR GRACE WEARS EARRINGS DIOR FINE JEWELRY

CANCER

LEO

VIRGO

LIBRA

SCORPIO

SAGITTARIUS

CAPRICORN

On July 10, 2017’s full moon in Capricorn throws a cosmic independence party for ultra-talented you. Celebrate, then surrender to the pull of partnership. Power-coupling becomes an art form while the Sun heats up your relationship zones until August 22. When choosing a mate, play the long game like Capricorn Christy Turlington. The lure of travel will be sweet in August’s second half. But with Mercury retrograde from August 12 until September 5, revisiting a known location will be a sanity saver.

AQUARIUS

Cupid, take the wheel! Cosmic lovebirds Venus and Mars rev up the romantic parts of your chart this July and August. You could meet or commit to a keeper near the July 23 new moon or the heart-opening solar eclipse on August 21. Don’t let personal projects languish: On August 7, a lunar eclipse in Aquarius—the first to hit your sign since August 2009—brings breakout star status. Cameo in a film, start a charity, launch a brand, or all of the above, like multi-hyphenate Aquarius Doutzen Kroes.

PISCES

ARIES

TAURUS

GEMINI

Take the lead! Just like Cancer Joan Smalls, you’re a total trailblazer as the Sun beams through your sign until July 22. The July 23 new moon could reveal a fresh income stream, so don’t let it pass you by. Wellness goals will accelerate near the lunar eclipse on August 7, but avoid perfectionism and allow the make-better process to be pleasurable. Flex your social butterfly wings after August 22. You could find true love at a music, art, or film festival, or click with a BFF-grade amie at a summer gathering.

Energy flows where your attention goes. Until July 22, it’s your professional life that’s demanding focus. Take charge of a mission that needs leadership or file paperwork for your own LLC. Get involved in a cause when the July 23 new moon awakens your activism. Romantically, the lunar eclipse of August 7 could bring one of the brightest moments in your 2017 calendar. No waiting to be wooed! Like Libra equestrian Edie Campbell, you may be the one dashing in on the white steed.

What makes you different also makes you dynamic, Aries. Play up your so-called quirks, like Ram sister Lindsey Wixson’s bee-stung lips and adorable gap teeth. This attracts fame, especially near the new moon on July 23 and the solar eclipse on August 23. Enjoy a romantic renaissance while your cosmic ruler Mars blazes into Leo from July 20 on. The July 10 full moon brings a professional victory, but the devil is in the details when Mercury turns retrograde for three weeks on August 12.

In early July, relax and refresh. You’ll scarcely have a moment to rest during Leo season (July 22 to August 22), especially with go-getter Mars blazing alongside the Sun the entire time. Barrel towards your most ambitious goals: Life-changing opportunities emerge near the Leo new moon on July 23 and a Leo solar eclipse on August 21. Coloring outside the lines, à la Lioness Cara Delevingne, is far better than toeing it, and your self-possessed fierceness could attract a soulmate near the August 7 lunar eclipse.

Who will be the Kylie to your (Scorpio) Kendall Jenner? A kindred spirit collaboration draws applause near the July 10 full moon. Team up with a sibling, coworker, or close friend FTW. High-profile opportunities boost your career near the new moon on July 23 and a solar eclipse on August 21. Ready or not, it’s time to leap, Scorpio. But assemble a solid support network to act as your safety net. Many hands make light work, especially while Mercury is in retrograde from August 12 to September 5.

Like family-oriented Taurus Gigi Hadid, you’ll crave the company of your nearest and dearest this July. Visit relatives or your ancestral homeland near the July 10 full moon. Ready to put down roots? Mars motivates your house-hunting mission after July 20. Your glamorous, amorous nature returns in August. But since Mercury’s in retrograde from the 12th, avoid home haircuts and toxic exes! Keep the power suit handy as the August 7 eclipse brings high-profile career developments.

Collaboration elevates your game while the Sun tours your teamwork zone until July 22. Then, slip off the radar for a month as el sol drifts through your 12th house of healing and dreams. Divine inspiration will likely strike while you’re napping— keep a notebook close. Virgo season begins on August 22, reigniting your hustle. But wait until Mercury ends its August 12 to September 5 retrograde to make any big reveals. As Virgo Claudia Schiffer has illustrated, a well-timed debut is everything.

Opposites attract as Venus sets off fireworks in your partnership house from July 4 to 31. Amour may arrive bearing a seductive accent and—like Sagittarius bombshell Lara Stone— your minxy mojo lures them in. Already attached? Explore an overseas locale hand in hand from July 22 to August 22. Career demands heat up after August 12 as messenger Mercury turns retrograde for three weeks. Don’t sacrifice summer behind your desk. Power lunch alfresco and take your laptop poolside.

Dance like everyone’s watching in early July when the Cancer Sun illuminates your fame zone. Bring it back to model-off-duty mode from July 22 to August 22 when, like Pisces Taylor Hill, your accessible ease will draw the right crowd. Make-it-happen Mars adds stamina to your work life and your workouts after July 20. Warning: Mercury retrograde from August 12 to September 5 could bring a text from an ex or reignite a lovers’ quarrel. Remember, the past is sometimes best left in the rearview.

Your allure is off the charts as cosmic coquette/creatrix Venus pulses through Gemini from July 4 to 31. You may celebrate Independence Day by liberating yourself from a flatlining relationship. Your social life gets a workout in August, making you a local legend, and the lunar eclipse on August 7 attracts attention from afar. Push past selfimposed limitations and aim for global superstar prestige, like Gemini Naomi Campbell. If that means heading to the French Riviera, just say oui.
